Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Architect designed garden cottage located in central Berkeley near the University, the entertainment district, famous 4th St. shopping district, the "gourmet ghetto" and Bart. Clean, beautiful, private, quiet, private entry and parking.

The space
The space is a beautiful light filled large L-shaped room located within a private garden. The garden can be seen from the bed, but the garden viewing window is completely private...no one sees in. To be private in the bath area, We've recently added a room divider. It's optional and easy to place wherever you want to create an additional private space. . If you choose to use this, no one can see you in the bathing area. The W.C. has a door that closes and has good ventilation. We've recently added shades that completely block out the outside, but when not pulled down allow the room to be filled with light and a view of the garden. There's no kitchen, but simple food can be prepared. There's a fridge, dishes, a microwave and you can prepare coffee and tea. The bed has been recently changed to a queen sized bed.

Guest access
Guests can park in the driveway, walk up a short path through a lockable gate, into the garden and then into the cottage. They are welcome to hang out in the garden, drink wine and pick some herbs.

Other things to note
If you're interested in pottery, you might want to visit Bob's studio where over 100 people are working in clay and taking classes. If you'd like to know about the art scene, there's an amazing one in nearby Oakland that Polly can fill you in on. If you play bluegrass music, come on in and jam with us, we can loan you a guitar!

Location

Berkeley, California, United States

The neighborhood is Central / West Berkeley. There are restaurants within walking distance.The University is a couple miles away. The entertainment district is about a mile as is the famous shopping district, 4th Street. The Marina is a beautiful place for walks as is Tilden Park. As is true with all of California, having a car makes things much easier, but isn't completely necessary. We're about 15 minutes from the happening "Uptown" part of Oakland and 30-45 minutes from SF depending on traffic. Bart is about a 15 minute walk.

During your stay
We've found airbnb guests to be very interesting people. We'd like to hear guests' stories because we never go anywhere....this is our way to travel. BUT if they want complete privacy we're glad for them to have that. Our house is completely separate from the cottage, so often we see guests hardly at all.
