This cute cozy cottage is the perfect spot for a couple or solo traveler. Nestled in a fruit-tree filled yard, the space is bright and welcoming, with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Situated in one of the East Bay's best neighborhoods and just a few blocks from BART and bus lines, this is the perfect spot from which to seamlessly explore most corners of the San Francisco Bay Area. With a wide variety of shops, services, and restaurants nearby, this spot is sure to please!

The space

You'll be lulled into a blissful sleep as you rest atop a dreamy, organic-cotton, pillow-top mattress. In the morning, you'll whip up some breakfast and sip your coffee on the patio under the pear tree. The cottage is fully self-contained with a well-equipped kitchenette (microwave, mini-fridge, hot plate, toaster oven, kettle, french-press coffee maker, blender, a selection of complimentary teas and coffee) and bathroom with shower, plus a cabinet to hang or put away your clothing.

Guest access

You'll have access to the cottage, as well as all the amenities of the (shared) backyard. These include a hammock for relaxing, a gas barbecue grill, patio chairs for relaxing and an outdoor table and sun umbrella, so you can enjoy your meals outdoors, if you choose!

Interaction with guests

We live in the front portion of the main house on the property and whenever possible prefer to welcome our guests on arrival to answer any questions you may have. We sometimes use the backyard or BBQ, so you may see us there. Your questions are always welcome, but in general we like to give guests their privacy. Let us know if we can help.

The little cottage was just what we were looking for. Good location easy to get to local attractions. I hate to even admit we did slightly miss a small tv for local news. But other than that I hope they don't change a thing. Host did a great job keeping us posted on weather and air quality before we arrived. Informational binner was nicely done.

Response from Karen & Mike:
Thank you for your kind words, and so glad you enjoyed your stay! We have not added a TV, opting instead for a dedicated wifi line for the unit to ensure that streaming of online content is high-speed and uninterrupted. We'll keep that in mind, though, for possible future modifications to the cottage. All the best to you both!

Very nice, small space. Clean and tidy. Modern with good kitchen amenities. Great location. Close to shopping and food. Easy transportation options nearby. Karen was very hepful and nice. Comfy bed. Shower left a little something to be desired as temperature and power seemed to be tied together, but no big deal. Would love to stay here again.

Response from Karen & Mike:
We'd love to host you again whenever you're in town. Thanks for mentioning the shower power. Environmental code in Berkeley & Albany mandates low-flow shower heads, but we'll see if within that category some more powerful options exist.

The place is very well equiped and near from the Bart Cerrito Plaza Station. You can also buy groceries or books nearby. The neighborhood is very quite and pleasant. You can walk along the parkway calmly and enjoy the nature.
