  • Super clean, awesome location! Diane was also very friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend.

  • Diane and Chris have a wonderful space: it is clean, private, and stocked with everything you need for comfortable lodging. They were quick to communicate with me about details of my stay and offered generous hospitality during my visit. From advice on local transportation and places to eat to pleasant conversation, they were fantastic hosts. I highly recommend staying here when you are in the East Bay Area.

  • Super hospitable hosts, gorgeous space and neighborhood! Will def stay here again while in SF🙌🏽

    Kim2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Cozy, clean, very comfortable. Wonderful hosts. I especially appreciated the lighting: several lamps as well as recessed, dimmable ceiling lights. The space was larger than I expected but take note if you are a tall person that the ceiling is quite low. Fridge, microwave, and a great shower. I would definitely book another stay.

    Carolyn2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • My favorite place to stay when I visit Albany.

    Sherry2020-02-26T00:00:00Z

  • This place is walking distance from anywhere you want to go, I will definitely come back here when I come back to San Francisco.

  • Diane and Chris were fantastic hosts! Easy to keep in contact with, and when I forgot my pillow they made it easy to swing by and pick up. Thanks so much!

    A small brown shingled creekside cottage is located in a sunny rear garden with lots of birds and a little dog. A bathroom extension was just added to the cottage. The cottage is located within walking distance to restaurants,coffee shops. 15 minute walk to North Berkeley BART.
    My home and cottage stand on the last remaining parcels of Christiana tract, a former Berkeley farm which is along Cordornices Creek.. It is a place of restful beauty with a large cottonwood tree adjacent to the cottage and two great redwoods across the creek. For solitude, peace and quiet, and a bit of wilderness in a busy world, it is perfect. It is also only 13 houses from coffee shops, fine dining, Berkeley Natural Foods and transportation.
    I love the variety of my neighborhood and also being able to walk to everything. It's an active multicultural neighborhood with bustling businesses and a variety of ages,. At the corner one can buy coffee, bagels, out-standing sweets, and even organic groceries. There is a beautiful nursery that is a treat to visit.. Curtis and Gilman is the crossroads of the Ohlone trail which is the name of the BART path and is filled daily with bicyclists, commuters, walkers,strollers, people exercising and dog walkers. There are several neighborhood restaurants - La Limes is a high- end excellent restaurant. There is a delicious Sushi Place.. Coming in late March is the Westbrae Bier Garden with the Brazilian Food Truck. They will serve beer and wine Tri tip. Also various food trucks will be there weekly.. The Berkeley Natural Grocery is across from La Limes. If my guests want to visit Berkeley, and the University, it is 20 minutes away. This is the perfect location. San Francisco is also very close, about 40 minutes by Bart. Once in San Francisco, One can explore the city neighborhoods or visit the Museums using public transportation. Po
  • Katie is a great host and the cottage is wonderful.

    Peter2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect little cottage, spacious bathroom, garden setting next to a sparkling creek, 1/2 block from coffee shops and more. A special place.

    Karen2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Katie’s little cottage was the perfect place for a solo traveler to relax in the east bay. It was cozy, comfortable, and super convenient, and you really can’t beat the price! Highly recommended.

    Our newly built private cottage has its own bathroom, reading nook with comfy chair, new 27" Apple monitor for streaming videos, microwave, small fridge, and full-size bed. A REAL bed.
    This sweet space is cozy but filled with southern light. You'll have access to a big yard with real grass (drought resistant!), lemon tree, lime tree, apple tree, rosemary bushes, jasmine, and a brick patio for al fresco dining or morning coffee. In addition to the fridge and microwave, you'll find a new coffee maker, fresh coffee, tea, hot chocolate and oatmeal. We'll make sure there's milk, and most importantly, a local craft brew to welcome you!
    We're right on the Berkeley/Albany border, three houses from the corner of Solano. Solano Avenue is our main street, lined with restaurants, bars, salons, shops, grocery stores, a theatre, and cafes.
  • Perfect location for the activities we planned; quiet and clean; with an excellent neighborhood that boasts unique shopping and restaurant options all within walking distance! Exceptional lodging for one or two people who enjoy warm hospitality and comfy urban stays.

    Mary2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • This was our fist time staying at an Airbnb so we didn’t exactly know what to expect. Our stay was very pleasant. The cottage is located in the back yard of a charming house on a beautiful street. We arrived late after our hosts retired for the evening. We where able to get the key to the cottage from the lockbox hanging on the yard gate using the access code they provided. The way into the yard through the fence is a bit narrow due to a garden planter. This was no problem for us, but might be difficult to navigate with larger luggage. The cottage was spacious, charming and immaculately clean. We always found parking right in front of the house on all three days of our stay. We met our lovely host family as we left every morning at the same time they took there children to school. The house is walking distance from the charming shopping and restaurant village along Solano Ave. I would suggest eating at Zachary's Pizza, which is my favorite pizza parlor in the world. UC Berkeley is only a 15 minutes drive. I would definitely consider staying here again.

  • Stephen and Marin's place was really lovely for what I needed. I was in town for a week-long residency and was in meetings from 9 am to 9 pm daily. It was perfectly quiet, clean, plenty of parking, plenty of hot water for showers, and close to everything. Note that the entrance is a little tight if you have large bags as I did, but you can make do. Thank you again!

    Faith2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Hidden gem!

    Kraig2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • We loved the stay at Stephen and Marin's. Place was sparkling clean. Would love to come back here and stay in the future. So accommodative and very quick responses.

  • What a lovely place in great neighborhood!

    Jen2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Nice, quiet spot within walking distance to many places to eat, shop, etc. I would definitely stay here again.

    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!
    During this "Shelter-In-Place Special" you'll get a sparkling-clean, beautiful space at Student Prices! NOTE: We want you to know that we prioritize your health and safety. We will continue to consult resources from the CDC and other international health agencies to align our cleaning standards with current official guidance for hotels. As an additional safeguard to every guest during Shelter-In-Place, we are blocking a minimum 48 hours between reservations to allow for extra-thorough cleaning and complete airing out of the space. In this cottage 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, CrockPot Express cooker, 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. We recently added Google Mesh Network pods to our Wifi system, so it is now blazing fast.
    Albany is a safe, welcoming, and diverse community that borders on Berkeley to the south & east, the San Francisco Bay to the west, and El Cerrito to the north. NOTE: During Shelter-in-Place, not all shops/restaurants/services listed below are available. However, all grocery stores remain open, and many restaurants are open for take out meals. **Just steps from the house: All the shops and amenities of El Cerrito Plaza, including Starbuck's, Peet's, Trader Joe's Lucky's, CVS, Barnes & Nobles, a variety of restaurants (Italian, Japanese, Chinese, Mexican, etc). **Within a few blocks: several local pubs and a bowling alley **A 12-minutue walk (or 3-min drive): lands you on Solano Avenue amidst a wide variety of shops, boutiques, restaurants, and coffee shops with local flare. **Just over a mile away: Point Isabel Recreation Shoreline offers a spectacular spot to walk along the Bay and watch the sunset, with views of the Golden Gate, San Francisco, and Mt. Tamalpais. **2 to 3 miles away: you'll find the "Gourmet Ghetto" area of Berkeley, home to the renowned Chez Panisse Restaurant and many other local favorites. The world-class University of California is just blocks from there. Tilden Park and Wildcat Canyon provide gorgeous scenery, amazing views, and extensive hiking trails.
  • Karen and Mike’s cottage was the perfect place for my husband and I to stay while in town for a wedding in Berkeley. It’s tiny but had everything we needed and more - microwave, toaster oven, fridge, iron and ironing board, hair dryer, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, lotion. (There is no TV, which we knew going in.) The bed was comfortable, and everything was clean and nicely decorated. I was genuinely impressed with all of the thoughtful touches around the cottage, including fresh flowers and snacks. It rained all weekend during our visit, so we didn’t have a chance to enjoy the backyard/garden, but it looked lovely. Check-in could not have been easier, and we did not have any trouble finding a parking spot on the street. It was very convenient to have Trader Joe’s as well as Starbucks and other restaurants right across the street. We would definitely stay here again!

    Michelle2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect place to stay in the east bay. Private and easy to book last minute. Will definitely be back!!!

    Ian2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Karen & Mike’s place was so perfect for our 3 day stay in Berkeley/Marina. My husband is disable and the access to Karen & Mike’s was just fine making it easy for my husband to roll in with his walker. Having Trader Joe’s in a walking distance was so perfect for us to prepare a few delicious intimate dinners. We absolutely enjoyed it! and hope to comeback in the near future! Thank you!

    La Casita DF2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • This garden studio is beautiful, stylish, and welcoming. The location is great -- within a short walking distance from the El Cerrito shopping center and BART -- and an only slightly longer distance to Albany hotspots on San Pablo and Solano Ave. Karen was helpful and friendly, and even the family cats came out to welcome me when I arrived. I would book this cozy cottage again in an instant!

    Sian2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • The location is very close to the BART station and there is a large shopping center right in front of the airbnb. The room was very clean and comfortable. The gentle sunshine and the chirping of birds in the morning allowed me to wake up pleasantly every day. When I opened the door, a lovely, friendly cat in the garden was sleeping peacefully. Check-in was also easy and smooth. Karen was a very kind host. Despite the house rules they were willing to respond to irregular requests for check-in. Because of my mistake, the room making team accidentally disposed of my things in the refrigerator because of my early check-in. When I returned that evening I was very upset and mailed Karen a bit rudely and angrily. Even at that time, Karen responded immediately and was really kind and sincere. She took care of the situation to my complete satisfaction with professionalism and empathy. Karen, I'm sorry to make you feel uncomfortable at that time after your kindness and consideration. One more time. Karen, thank you very much.

    Keiko2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Karen and Mike’s place is the first Airbnb that I ever stayed at, and I’ve returned twice since then. Great location! Great space! Great hosts!

  • What a lovely cottage Karen and Mike have created. Thoughtful amenities and lovely decor in a safe and cozy environment. If I was lucky I was greeted buy one of her sweet cats on my way in or out! I would definitely stay again.

    Fresh and cozy studio space, in safe and walkable neighborhood. The studio is a detached backyard space with private entrance from the driveway with guest parking.
    The studio is a 150 square foot space with a comfy queen-sized bed, tiny kitchenette (mini-fridge, microwave, electric kettle, Keurig coffee maker, and toaster), and bathroom with a shower. The studio includes a small dresser with a few drawers, and has a hair dryer and iron with an ironing mat. There is Wi-Fi and television with Netflix. There is a small patio with an outdoor dining table and seating.
    We are located in the Thousand Oaks neighborhood of Albany, on the border with Berkeley, Kensington, and El Cerrito. We are a 5 to 10 minute walk to some great restaurants, bakeries, cafes, and shops at Colusa Circle and along Solano Avenue. On Sunday mornings, you can walk a couple of blocks to our Farmer’s Market for locally prepared foods and treats, fresh produce, and live music. Albany Aquatic Center is located about a block away, and has indoor and outdoor pools for lap swimming and recreational swimming. We are also a few blocks from the Ohlone Greenway, a popular paved trail for walking, running, and biking that runs from Berkeley to Richmond. Tilden Regional Park, a favorite place of ours to hike and enjoy nature, is located about a 10-minute drive up the hill.
  • My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our stay! The space is small (although it was perfect for our needs) and very clean and thoughtfully put together. Jeni and Skye were helpful, communicative hosts and we would be happy to stay here again on another trip to the Bay Area.

    Rachel2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Stylish space with nice amenities in a great neighbourhood

    Chris2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great one-week stay at Jeni and Skye's place. It's just as described, in a great location, quiet neighborhood, easy access with a place to park a car (huge!), very clean and nicely decorated. The bed was very comfortable. The hosts were very quick to respond when we needed something or had a question. This place is a fantastic value for the area and we will come back!

    Jack2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay. Around 45 mins to the city via the BART or driving.

    Dean2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Clean, welcoming, within walking distance of Bart's El Cerrito Plaza stop, it has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Skye is available and present. Recommended!

    Little Lemon Cottage is a 1 bd/1 ba 500 sq.ft. retreat-style guest cottage located in Albany right next to Berkeley. Set in a lush & cozy backyard near Solano Ave, which is dotted with small shops and cafes, it's an ideal location for those looking for a small town feeling within proximity of the city. This cottage was built with the needs of our guests in mind, including private laundry. The cottage is located steps from an array of Albany/Berkeley culinary culture, cafes, shops, and markets.
    This is a private stand-alone backyard cottage in the Albany/Berkeley area, 30 min to 1 hour from SF depending on traffic. It's an ideal location especially for those visiting family and friends in the East Bay. It's located in a quiet residential backyard with its own entrance and private outdoor space. It's minutes from BART, walking trails, UC Berkeley and Oakland. If you are looking to spend most of your stay sightseeing in SF, it may be best to look for options in the city as the location may seem far for those wanting to have immediate access to San Francisco. The open-floor plan will welcome you into a full kitchen, brand new appliances, private laundry machine, queen-size bed, flat screen TV with cable, appleTV, and Wi-Fi. We supply coffee, cotton towels, linens, and detergent. There is a sofa bed in the living room (queen-size) with plenty of plush bedding available too.
    Located in the heart of Albany, CA, the cottage is steps away from this small town's "main street,” Solano Avenue. The neighborhood is home to restaurants, local cafes, shops, and markets in the East Bay. It's a 20 min walk on the Ohlone walking trail to El Cerrito BART station, 30-60 minute drive to San Francisco depending on traffic and minutes from Berkeley's Gourmet Ghetto, UC Berkeley campus, and Oakland. It's easy to access beautiful Marin (20-30 min) and Wine Country (1-1.5 hours) via the San Rafael / Richmond bridge.
  • Wonderful stay in an amazing location! Our entire time we kept saying, “Wouldn’t it be nice if we could live here full-time?” The bed was so comfy, the entire space immaculately clean, and it was great to be able to walk to dinner or take a 30-40 min drive into SF. Hope to be back soon!!

    Grace2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Cozy Cottage clean with wonderful amenities in door and out! Close to shopping grocery stores and restaurants! 5 stars

    Christy2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cottage that was spotless and close to restaurants and boutiques and easy access to Berkeley and SF.

    Laura2019-12-04T00:00:00Z
  • This was a great place to stay, quiet but less than a block from Solano Ave and all of its conveniences. The space was well stocked with everything we needed, very clean, and obviously well loved.

    Siri2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Sherry’s place is literally the cleanest Airbnb I’ve ever stayed in (which is saying something because they’ve mostly been very clean!); it was spotless. It was also very thoughtfully put together so that anyone staying would have to wonder where to find or how to use amenities in the space. Comfy bed, great location (coffee in a really cute nursery around the corner!), and Sherry gave us great recs for more places nearby on Solano. Would love to stay here again.

    Michelle2019-11-22T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely one of the very best experiences that we’ve had with Airbnb! The Little Lemon Cottage was immaculate, stylish, and perfect for a short stay, or for a month. In addition, it was quite reasonably priced. Sherry, and the Little Lemon Cottage receives my highest recommendation.

    Kert2019-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • Lemon Cottage is a gem. Highly recommended. Well furnished. Modern. Clean. Great location. Good alternative for visiting San Francisco and the rest of the Bay Area.

    Kathleen2019-08-03T00:00:00Z

    Jorge2019-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • One of the best Airbnbs I've stayed in. A very private room with its own lock, exceptionally clean and quiet, and an easy self check-in process. While it may seem a little far from San Francisco, the BART station is only a short walk away, which makes the distance largely immaterial. The neighborhood is excellent - safe, suburban, and great local bars and shops less than a minute's walk away.

    Allum2019-07-04T00:00:00Z

However, all grocery stores remain open, and many restaurants are open for take out meals. **Just steps from the house: All the shops and amenities of El Cerrito Plaza, including Starbuck's, Peet's, Trader Joe's Lucky's, CVS, Barnes & Nobles, a variety of restaurants (Italian, Japanese, Chinese, Mexican, etc). **Within a few blocks: several local pubs, additional restaurant options, and a bowling alley **A 12-minutue walk (or 3-min drive): lands you on Solano Avenue amidst a wide variety of shops, boutiques, restaurants, and coffee shops with local flare. **Just over a mile away: Point Isabel Recreation Shoreline offers a spectacular spot to walk along the Bay and watch the sunset, with views of the Golden Gate, San Francisco, and Mt. Tamalpais. **Less than 2 miles away: you'll find the "Gourmet Ghetto" area of Berkeley, home to the renowned Chez Panisse Restaurant and many other local favorites. The world-class University of California is just blocks from there.
  • Clean, cozy little den. Super comfortable bed. The space was perfect for our family of 3, and a fantastic price. Highly recommend.

  • Convenient location - very close to shopping and BART. Nice place

    Sylvia2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Sweet little place. Cozy and warm and very quiet at night. Love the backyard and the bird feeders on the windows. Shopping area to grab snacks and dinner so close to walk to. I'd recommend this place to anyone.

    Ann2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Kind and generous enough to offer early check in when available.

    Stephen2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very nice place, very close to the El Cerrito BART station and Trader Joe's and is beautiful on the inside and out.

    Isabella2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • My go to place in East Bay. Clean, convenient, great hosts

    Mark2020-02-20T00:00:00Z

  • This is a beautiful space in a gorgeous neighborhood, a quick bus ride away from Berkeley and the BART. It would work perfectly for a couple or four people wanting their own sleeping areas! We had a great time and would absolutely return.

    Gráinne2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We loved this space and would definitely enjoy returning to such a beautiful home and neighborhood.

    Sarah2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • This beautiful home is located in a wonderful neighborhood. It’s not too far from San Francisco or Cal university. My friends and I had a wonderful time here.

    Ernesto2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Cozy and perfect for our needs.

    Sicily2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great spot to stay if you're looking for a low key vibe that's close to everything but isn't right in the heart of the hustle and bustle. The house is cute and we loved taking morning runs in the surrounding neighborhoods. Definitely recommend for anyone looking for an affordable and comfortable place in the East Bay.

    Casey2019-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • Erin and Esteban’s place was a safe, clean, and comfortable spot for us with our three children. We loved the location close to great shops and restaurants on Solano. Warm and cozy living room especially with the heater on (necessary at the time of year we were there) and lots of tv/movie options available. Comfortable bed (we brought a pack n play that we set up for our little one). The older kids enjoyed the loft and when they weren’t using it we put the ladder on the floor so our toddler wasn’t tempted to climb it. Great communication with hosts and easy to find and access the house. Thanks for a great stay!

    Alyson2019-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful, cozy space! Nice place to relax and recharge. Communication was quick and friendly with the hosts and I definitely recommend staying here :)

    Alecia2019-11-21T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lovely, cozy unit in the most beautiful, peaceful neighborhood. Everything you might need for a relaxing getaway, close to the fun of town but sheltered from any chaos. Wonderful, comfortable space, beautifully decorated. Just a pleasure to wake up here each morning of our stay.

    Liz2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay here was great. Super clean and stylish. Would recommend!

    Jolie2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Such a great find! We appreciated the amenities and thoughtfulness with which Pat has prepared their spot.

    Kristianna2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • This place is quiet and clean. Shops, restaurants and transportation are all walkable for an active person. Thermostat must be on a program, we needed to keep turning it down to 67 degrees or so, the way we're most comfortable. However, others may like it just the way it is. We would stay there again.

    Dave2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Pat’s place is an absolute oasis. The bed is incredibly cozy, the rain shower is divine, the backyard space was a great spot for the morning cup of tea. It’s two blocks from Solana Ave that has awesome amenities (little star pizza, Fonda, the adorable coffee cart in the plant nursery) and a great walking neighborhood. It was awesome to come home to a quiet welcoming cottage after a day our in the East Bay! We will be back!

    Kari2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Can’t say enough wonderful things about Pat’s place, it felt like every need of a traveler had been anticipated and Pat has truly gone above and beyond. Amenities were wonderful and thoughtful, the kitchen is fully stocked, the coffee is fantastic, the space is clean and modern but still extremely cozy and comfortable. I slept wonderfully, felt relaxed and had everything I needed. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay!

    Tareyn2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying at Pat's place. The space is beautiful and thoughtfully laid out. The Nespresso machine, the comfortable bed, and the amazing shower made it feel very luxurious. In the warmer months, I'm sure the cute private patio is perfect for morning coffee. Can't recommend this place highly enough!

    Paige2020-02-17T00:00:00Z

  • Malcolm’s place is very clean and cozy. It is even better than the pictures. Malcolm is nice and considerate. We look forward to visiting again.

    Vickie2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Malcolm’s apartment was cozy and comfortable for my husband and me. The kitchen is well appointed, and thoughtfully stocked with basics. We especially appreciated the coffee and snacks :-) The bed is great, ample towels for guest use, nice step in shower, and plenty of privacy. We highly recommend Malcolm’s apartment.

    Melodee2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, clean space. I keep awkward hours and work until very late, but this wasn't a problem. It was slightly awkward to have to use the garage door as an entrance (I'm extra conscious about creating a disturbance in the house) but that doesn't mean that it wasn't a great space.

    Roberto2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • During three weeks, this place was so nice for my family. Malcolm is so gentle and so nice also.

    Jeong Han2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • It's always a pleasure to stay here where you feel welcome and you notice the extra thoughtfulness.

  • The creation of this Airbnb space has been beautifully done, with attention to safety considerations. . There are plenty of outlets, and a lovely bathroom, with amazing water pressure in the walk in shower. The bed is very comfortable, the kitchen is convenient and completely furnished. Very quiet, and the owner is available but unobtrusive.

    Private garden cottage in the heart of Berkeley's Gilman District. Located well off the street. Designer decorated, good quality mattress, kitchenette & small new bathroom. There's a small refrigerator, microwave, toaster and coffee maker. The cottage is not set up for cooking. A short walk to Whole Foods, Biergarten, Funky Elephant, and others. Walk to bus and 1 mile to North Berkeley Bart. Permit #ZCSTR2017-0054
    The cottage is attached to our garage behind our house. We recently remodel the cottage to accommodate guests. We added a small but efficient bath with shower. There is a kitchenette with a refrigerator and microwave. The kitchen does not have an oven or cook top so it's not set up for cooking. Our guests have access to the garden in back and are welcome to use the table an chairs out there.
    Our neighborhood is the new destination for people who love craft beer, great coffee (Philz), and food of all kinds. Getting around is easy, lots of public transit options and a great bike/walk path around the corner. Really close to Solano Ave., Ocean View and the Berkeley waterfront. There is easy access to the freeway. The North Berkeley Bart is about a mile from our home.
  • Great hospitality. Comfy bed.

    Shannon2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Heidi does such a fantastic job taking care of her guests. The space is private, clean, and very comfortable. There are many thoughtful amenities making it easy to make a pot of coffee, store luggage, or fix a meal (Whole Foods is a 10min walk). One of my absolute favorites!

    Tareyn2020-02-27T00:00:00Z

    Duje2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Such a gem! Private, yet conveniently located, this perfectly appointed and welcoming space made my trip to Berkeley into a beautiful retreat! Heidi is so warm and welcoming, I can’t imagine staying anywhere else in Berkeley. I highly recommend Casaluna!

    Katheryn2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • This place is located in a nice neighborhood in North Berkeley surrounded by cafes, restaurants, shops which gives the feel of authentic quite Berkeley life in the bustling San Francisco Bay Area. Bob and Heidi did a great job with the stylish hide-away studio, which is well stocked with all the necessities and open to a nice back yard. They are very knowledgeable about the local culture and give excellent recommendations around the neighborhood. We will definitely be back!

    Jj2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • This place is great, stylish and cozy. Love it and it’s location. Would stay again. Host was amazing as well. Thanks for the lovely place to stay.

    Nikki & Danny2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Heidi goes above and beyond in thoughtful details to make her guests feel at home. The space is warm, comfortable, and relaxing. The bed is extremely comfortable, the kitchen is well stocked with serving ware and additional thoughtful things like serving bowls and a cutting board. If there’s something you need while you’re away from home, Heidi has thought of it! One of my favorite places to stay!

    Tareyn2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • I had a fantastic stay at Heidi’s place. I travel for work on a regular basis and Heidi has put a lot of time and care into thoughtful touches (luggage racks, a little fridge, a full sized coffee maker with coffee, plenty of kitchen serving ware, an iron, a clothing closet, snacks, etc) that make a stay away from home comfortable and easy. The space is extremely clean, comfortable and cozy. Felt like a home away from home!

    Cozy backyard cottage in shared backyard with sunny patio with couch and chairs for relaxing outside. Studio cottage is separate from house with a queen size bed, bathroom with shower, kitchenette and eating area. Everything you need to relax and make simple meals, including coffee and tea. One block from Solano Ave for restaurants and shopping, few blocks walking from whole foods, and more restaurants. Near Bart and one block from bus stop to SF. Hiking in Tilden Park just 10 min drive.
  • Private and super clean, this spacious cottage was well appointed with everything I needed and a place to put things. Water pressure was great, everything is very new and fresh, and it is light and quiet. The location is prime, close to freeway and the fun Solano avenue. The bed was cozy and it was fun to watch DVD's. Wifi worked perfectly, and the kitchen area is stocked so you can make a meal with ease. Heater worked like a quick dream to take the cold away. It was nice to stay in a place that was separate from the main home, as in some places staying underneath you hear the other tenants. Not here, it was calm and quiet. The hostess was quick to reply.

    Kenny2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Great little efficiency apartment in an extremely convenient location! Raquel was wonderful to communicate with and was very accommodating when we needed to stay an extra night at the last minute. The space is small, but extremely clean and has everything you need - coffee maker, mini fridge, stovetop, toaster, etc. Raquel even put out apples and granola bars as a welcome gift, and included a list of local recommendations to check out while we were in town. Easy to check in and out . . . overall a great place to stay! Thank you, Raquel!

    Maggie2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Very pleasant stay, clean and simple.

    Christopher2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • I needed a place last minute and I was so lucky Raquel’s was available. Her place is charming. It’s cozy in a comfortable way and unexpectedly spacious, also in a cozy way. The place is so thoughtfully appointed, it’s like she thought of every detail needed to make it feel like home. And it did, immediately. Location was perfect for my needs, her communication was immediate. I’ve already recommended Raquel’s place to friends and will definitely seek it out the next time I’m in the East Bay. Lastly, if you are a grandparent whose grandchildren live in University Village, the location of Raquel's place is in easy walking distance, with Sprouts on the way.

    Haika2020-02-03T00:00:00Z

    Our house was built in 1897, and we've recently finished a big remodel that makes it even more beautiful, comfortable, and usable. We live in a very safe and quiet neighborhood that hasn't changed since my parents bought this house in December 1968.
    This lovely room is at the front of the house, and has bay windows that provide a view of the neighborhood, a lot of sunlight, and frequently spectacular sunsets. You can shut the shades for dark and privacy. There's a desk and an office chair, as this room has been my father's office, but he isn't using it these days. There's also a comfortable chair with an ottoman, and a window seat. We also rent a guest bedroom on Airbnb, under the heading "Cozy Room in Beautiful Berkeley Victorian."
    This is a great neighborhood of mostly single-family houses. We're walking distance to UC Berkeley and a short drive to many places of interest.
  • Gillian’s home is a great place to stay in the Berkeley area. Close-by Street parking was easy to find and the check in process was very easy. The bedroom was very comfy and had plenty of space for a solo traveler like me. The personal touches that Gillian has throughout the house really make you feel at home. If you happen to be in the area on a rainy day, Gillian and her dad have lots of interesting books to dive into. This is definitely a perfect spot for cat lovers. I’m looking forward to the next time I get to visit the Berkeley area already!

    Rent your own 1 bedroom cottage in back of a cute house in Albany. COMES WITH IT'S OWN PRIVATE BATHROOM, a smallish bedroom that contains a captains bed with four drawers. The bed is higher than most so probably not advised for very elderly people. The bedroom and the bathroom are tiled.
    Kitchen is stocked with a coffee maker, coffee and filters, microwave, condiments and lots of pots and pans and silverware and plates if you like to cook. The cottage is very quiet and cozy with a view of the backyard with exotic plants and a pond with a fountain. Access is through the side of the house on a level path tiled with terra cotta tiles.there is Internet access and also a 46 inch flat screen high definition TV with an Apple TV box with access to many movies and tv shows as well as a free Netflix subscription. The neighborhood is quiet and extremely safe, yet half a block away is Solano ave which is major street in Albany and Berkeley has dozens of international restaurants and shops of many descriptions. There is an extensive bus system on Solano and the subway or BART has a station ten to fifteen minutes walk from the house. The cottage is located in the backyard and is completely separate from the house in which I live. Yet close enough to the main house that excessive outdoor noise can be a problem. The backyard is beautiful and I will probably be using it a lot during the summer. The deck in front of the cottage is designated for guests. The deck on the side is for residents of the main house. People really seem to like this place as it is spacious and beautifully designed. The cottage sleeps two in a full size bed in the bedroom and also the sofa in the living room folds out to make another full size but very comfortable bed. For those brave enough to climb up a ladder there is also a loft that contains a full size bed. There is even a twin size foam futon which can accommodate one more person so the cottage could accommodate seven people if two occupied the bedroom, two slept on the couch, two in the loft and one on the futon. But please note: the more people the more crowded it can get as the entire space is about 450 square feet. It will seem crowded if there are more than three people and yet it can accommodate up to seven. There is only street parking but in Albany that is never a problem although beware of street sweeping on the east side of the street every third Wednesday and on the west side every fourth Wednesday. If you are seeing this ad on Craigslist for a very low price it is a scam Several guests have mentioned something it's fair to warn prospective guests about. Albany is a small town with small houses and the distance between the cottage and the main house is not very far. People might be using the backyard or hot tub as well which borders on the cottage so if you want a place that is remote and private this might not be right for you.
    Its very safe and nice. Half a block from Solano ave which is filled with shops and restaurants.
  • Cute Cottage. Large kitchen. Full size refrigerator .

    Jared2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • The host, Robin, was extremely fast at responding to any questions or concerns I had. The location was ideal and close to lots of things that people might be interested in. But it was also a great and safe neighborhood. Robin was very accommodating and really made everything easy and not stressful. Place is as advertised and beds were comfortable as well.

    Antonia2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • My husband, my two teenage sons, our little dog, and I stayed at Robin's place and were very happy with the accommodations. One kid used the loft, one used the sofa bed, and we used the little bedroom. The location was just excellent. Parking is really easy on Carmel Avenue. Very easy check-in. Thanks, Robin!

  • Perfect little apartment for weekend getaway in Berkley. Cute neighborhood, awesome host! Thanks again for everything!

  • This is a lovely stand alone unit at the back of the main house. The living space (kitchen and sitting area) is spacious for 1 or a couple and perfectly doable for more for a short stay. The bathroom is clean with a hot full height shower over the bath. The main bedroom is accessed via the bathroom and has a very comfortable bed. The second bed is on the 'loft' accessed by a fixed ladder (I didn't use that). It was perfect for me for 5 days. I didn't use the kitchen much but it looked very well equipped and clean. The location is great - many places to eat, drink, or buy groceries within walking distance on Solano, and the unit was very quiet.

This location is excellent!
    My house features clean and tidy for a family to rent ,simple and clean cost-effective!
    The Albany neighborhood is a very calm place. There are a few restaurants close by like Panda Express, Romano's Macaroni Grill, Rubio's, Nations, Sushi Sho, Pizza Romana, etc If you are looking for convenience stores there is a CVS one block away and there is a Starbucks, Lucky supermarket, and liquor store all in close range. If you are walking around the neighborhood at night I would advise to walk along the main street San Pablo because it is more illuminated.We have small oven,The big oven is brokon.
  • This house is at the quiet town of Albany. About 5min walk from shopping center and BART so if you dint have car,no problem. If you rent car,I recommend small car. Parking lot is small and San Francisco parking is not so big. There are 3bedroom so it’s enough for group or family.

    If the idea of staying in an adorable (and tiny) "off-the-grid" cabin (no electricity) located close to everything the Bay Area has to offer appeals to your sense of adventure, this is the place for you. Located just behind the main house where you'll have 24-hour access to the bathroom and kitchen for making coffee (and outlets to power your electronics). Simple. Please read through the listing to learn more about the cabin, location, transportation, and local amenities. 10% hotel tax included.
    The 8 x 10 cordwood garden cabin sleeps a single person (or cuddlesome couple) comfortably. There's an antique iron extra-long twin bed, chest of drawers, and small amount of hanging space. There is no electricity or heat (there is wifi though), but the down comforter will keep you toasty. Equipped with battery-powered lantern and a headlamp for your use. Note: the kitchen and bathroom are in the main house. Limit 2 guests. The cabin is located in the garden behind the main house. A brick path leads along a patio to the porch and kitchen door of the house. You'll have access to the kitchen (to make coffee or tea only--no cooking) and bathroom in the main house throughout your stay. Since the cabin has no electricity, you are welcome to use the kitchen outlets as needed to charge devices. I'll generally be around during your stay and will help you get situated and comfortable with the lighting in the cabin. You are welcome to make coffee or tea in the morning (or anytime) if you like. This is a really safe and cute neighborhood, with shopping and dining a short walk from the house. There is ample street parking available. The #18 bus to downtown Berkeley is on Solano Avenue, 2 blocks away. N. Berkeley BART is a 15 minute walk along a recently renovated pedestrian/bike path. There's parking at the station. BART runs from SFO or to OAK. If my schedule permits, I'm happy to pick you up or drop you at the N. Berkeley BART station. There are always taxis there, as well as Uber or Lyft. I have a very sweet mini-poodle puppy named Gilly in residence.
    This is a really safe and cute neighborhood, with shopping and dining a short walk from the house. Solano Avenue (half in Berkeley, half in Albany) with its excellent variety of restaurants is a 5-minute walk to the north. Heading south 8-minutes, you'll reach Gilman St. and the Westbrae neighborhood where there's a lively beer garden, a couple of great coffee shops, a bagel shop, sushi, and fine dining at Lalime's, as well as Berkeley Natural Foods. There is ample street parking available.
  • Cozy and quiet. Ms Deborah is lovely

    Mike2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • I just needed a place to rest and this place provided that. It was clean and organized. I did enjoy the interesting outdoor cabin feeling.

    Oscar2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Deborah's place is a little smaller than anticipated, but it is so charming and cozy! Deborah is extremely accomodating- offering tea, coffee, and water by the bed. She even has a new puppy to say hi to!

    Carol2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great spot! Would stay again and recommend to a friend.

    Justin2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Deborah's place is set in a great location (~10 minute walk to Monterey Market (best produce in the East Bay), ~20-25 minute walk to BART (allowing for easy transit to SF, downtown Oakland, and downtown Berkeley, amongst other places), and extremely safe). Deborah, herself, was a wonderful host (respectful of space, while interested in talking with you and providing you with pertinent local information, if you are interested). The garden cabin is a really cool structure, featuring an interior lock, antique bottles, and warm blankets. This place is worth checking out!

    Greg2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Had a fantastic stay at Deborah's. I got in in the wee hours of the morning, and she was very responsive (sorry about that!). The cottage/main house/outdoor space are all delightful - very unique decor, lots of cool art to look at, very clean. I slept very well - I love the combination of a cool night with a warm duvet. Deborah herself is very kind and nice to talk to. She had some nice suggestions for places to check out and communities to join. Her pup is adorable. I wish I had more time to hang out and enjoy the outdoor space!

    Megan2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Always a pleasure to stay at Deborah’s cottage when I’m in the area. It’s the perfect spot for a traveler, with tons of walkable places in the Berkeley/Albany area. I’ll be back again next time I get the chance!

    My 1896 brown shingled home in Berkeley has two cozy bedrooms up steep stairs. There is a single bed, delightful furnishings with period pieces and two windows.. One of the windows is overlooking the creek which flows past two giant redwoods.
  • Kathie is a gracious, friendly and kind host. I spent three days at her home and felt as if I had known her all my life. I loved her house and also her beautiful garden. Phoebe, her dog, is sweet and friendly. Thank you Kathie for being a great host- one whom I'll not forget any time soon.

    The greatest little studio in one square s-mile (aka, Albany, CA). Whether you are commuting to San Francisco, University of California-Berkeley or if the local cafe or brewery is more your speed, the studio is close and convenient to it all. Walk to Solano Ave where you will find an abundance of cafes and restaurants. Or head in the other direction to the Albany Bulb where you can visit the beach, go for a perfect nature walk and see amazing views of the bay and city.
    The studio is cozy (192sq ft) but brand new with all of the necessities. The yard gets a lot of sun and is a great place to relax.
    We love the walkability of our neighborhood. Philz coffee, Whole Foods and Fieldworks brewery are just a few of our favorites.
  • Great Little House. Lots of thoughtful details. Older neighborhood but 5 min drive from great shops and restaurants on Solano blvd. Would stay here again. Good for a couple, really small space for more than 2.

    Kathryn2020-03-14T00:00:00Z

  • This was our first experience with an Airbnb property and it has set the bar so so high for any future stays. Response times were almost immediate, Kristi was extremely helpful with the whole process including giving me feedback on traffic conditions while I planned activities in the area. The host was available but provided privacy that made this stay feel like a place of our own. The space was so beautiful, stylish, CLEAN, and comfortable! I’m very happy with this stay and will definitely stay again if I’m in the area!

The interior is so simplistic, but cozy and homey. The lighting in the space is perfect, but she make sure to provide great window covers for those that like to sleep in. The neighborhood is absolute perfection. I felt so safe going on walks around by myself and in the dark. It is a 15 minute walk (hike, honestly) up to Albany Hill Park and it's such a great way to see the sunset and it's just a quick jump back to the house. 15/10 recommend!

    La Casita is situated in our back yard. It is on the 1st level of 4 (4th at street), so be prepared to use stairs. Although once arrived it is very peaceful and quiet. Downtown Berkeley is ~10-15 minute drive. El Cerrito Plaza Bart Station is a 6 minute drive. Solano Avenue (shops and restaurants) is a 5 minute drive (20 minute walk). Farmers Market every Sunday (10-2) is a 7 minute walk. We look forward to having you stay at our property and happy to answer any questions you may have.
    Guests may use La Casita and what is inside it. Guests may also use the back yard it is situated in. Although the yard is not currently furnished so the plants and peacefulness are what can be enjoyed most. There is a washer and dryer that can also be used if necessary. This will require direct permission from the hosts as it is in the main structure.
  • This place is beautiful! perfect size, very clean, modern and stylish, there is a very nice garden outside with a tree and flowers. The location is great, the views of the bay outside the house are amazing, the farmers market and other restaurants are just a 10 min walk away from the house. The hosts were super friendly and helpful, and made us feel like we were home. I’m definitely recommending this place to all my friends and family, I would love to go back!

    Ideal for a family or friends getaway, this Beautiful Hideaway offers everything you need to feel at home during your travels. The space is warm, private and conviniently close within walking distance to some of the best restaurants in Berkeley and some of its most emblematic parks. The apartment is conviniently located: 10min drive to UC Berkeley 25min drive from OAK 45min drive from and to SFO 25min to San Francisco 40min drive to Wine Country
    This is a beautiful space with tile floors and generous windows. My favorite feature is the private, zen-like deck and garden off the indoor back porch and a bonus double shower and bath tub in the bathroom. The bedroom is large enough for a bed and a sitting area, and the closet is almost a miniature studio itself. The wood burning fireplace gives the space plenty of warmth and charm..
    The Thousand Oaks neighborhood is peaceful and beautiful; it is full of hiking trails and winding paths. It is not unusual to see deer early in the morning. We are at the foot of the hills, adjacent to the historic neighborhoods of Kensington and Albany.

    A haven, a private retreat with elegant artisanal design, decor and detail. Perfect for an office getaway (great place to get some work done). A hideaway spot to retreat from whatever ails you and yet a stroll away from hubbub to entertain your culinary sensibilities. Take a shower enjoying a gorgeous skylight or bathe by the moonlight. A true find, a quiet, gorgeous space.....close to SF. Incredibly comfortable bed, with a library to settle into a great novel or contemplate your own.
    Lovely Private Studio in the backyard of a house with hardwood floors, great light, skylights, full kitchen and bathroom with clawfoot tub and skylight that brings the outside inside as you watch the sky or moon when showering or bathing. A wonderful retreat! Includes high speed wifi, an incredibly comfortable bed, great work space and a backyard space. Parking is available on the street. Neighborhood offers easy walking distance to restaurants, coffee, bookstores, etc. Easily accessible by public transportation as well. By far, better than a hotel anyday!! Could be a bed and breakfast too. There are fresh home made juices of many shapes, colors, and sizes. As your host, I will ensure that you have what you need, to make your experience here the best it can be. Btw..Diego the cat is no longer a presence on the property.
    Amazing shops, restaurants, great strolls, bars, markets and people!
  • If you are seeking a bright, vintage-designed quiet space in a great location this studio apartment is a great choice for you. There is a nicely equipped basic kitchen, great wifi and the bed is super-comfortable. I particularly liked the full-size desk that also works as a dining table for one. I hope to stay here again on a future visit.

  • Rina's flat is so homey, comfortable, and quiet. It's in a wonderful neighborhood. Rina is friendly and available. This was my second stay and I'd definitely book it again!

  • This was a cozy little spot and was very comfortable.

    Dan2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • We very much liked Forina's Sweet Spot. Great location in a lovely neighborhood, wonderful privacy, comfortable space with a desk for working. Delightful selection of books to peruse. Thoughtful touches such as half and half and organic eggs in the fridge and a quality dark chocolate bar. Beware if you care: No TV, which we understand.

    JulieStuart2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • The space is comfortable, quiet, and in a great location. Forina was very responsive. Overall I had a great stay. Thanks!

    Andrea2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Set in a lovely neighborhood within driving distance of a dog-friendly beach and park with walking trails, I really appreciated my stay at this well appointed, private apartment that made for a very comfortable stay. The host was very responsive, check in and check out were a breeze, and I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.

    Victoria2019-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • David’s place is conveniently located near cafes, bars, and BART. It was spotless, with pleasant amenities, including coffee and plenty of water bottles on hand. The California Cottage helped make our stay comfortable and complete.

    The home is walking distance to North Berkeley BART, Monterey Market, Espresso Roma Cafe, Gioia Pizzeria, Westbrae Biergarten, Berkeley's "Gourmet Ghetto," Albany's Solano Avenue establishments, and Whole Foods. You’ll love the neighborhood setting with nearby parks, and easy access to Bay views and hiking trails in the hills. Experience the convenient location, comfort, and warm, friendly people. My place is good for solo adventurers, visiting researchers and business travelers.
    I call this room "The Forest Room," for both the trees outside the window as well as the soothing green interior decor. This private room with queen bed shares no walls with any other bedroom and includes comfortable office furniture for those who have business to conduct on their stay. Most ideal for those who have commitments outside the home during regular business hours.
    The house is set in one of the loveliest residential neighborhoods in Berkeley bordering Albany. It is safe with many walkable amenities, whether you're looking for fresh produce, bakery treats, the catch of the day, imported cheeses, or gourmet cuisines. For a breath of fresh air and a view overlooking the Bay, a walk to climb atop Indian Rock is only a mile away. PLEASE NOTE: The neighbors across the street are completing construction for the new addition to their home. Construction hours are confined to M-F, 8am-4pm. I am relieved to report that -- considering how much I NEED quiet time to work during the day -- the activity across the street these past months has hardly felt disruptive (and, they're in their home stretch now). Until further notice, please note that neighborhood noise will still be variable during their stated work hours so, please factor this into your daytime needs. I have the phone number for the construction company and the name of the foreman. They absolutely welcome us to contact them at any time with any questions, problems, or requests for specific accommodations.
  • I felt literally at home with Joy, couldn't ask for more. I will always be grateful for her hospitality and warm heart. Thank you for make me feel at home so far from my place 💚

    Fatima2019-12-13T00:00:00Z
  • I am really happy I decided to stay here por 3 months. The room and the house are very nice, and Joy is the perfect host. She is lovely and very careful about everyone needs, and now she will be an important person in my life as well.

    Pablo2019-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • Joy and her house are very warm and welcoming. The place was great and private, but also full of kind people. She was very flexible and made sure everything was going fine for me. If I were to return to Berkeley, I'd gladly stay with her again.

    Benjamin2019-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • Joy and Gregg were very welcoming, organised and thoughtful hosts. Communication was always excellent. Their space is very clean and tidy with useful access to the kitchen. The location was very convenient being close to the North Berkeley BART station and good food options.

    Robin2019-07-06T00:00:00Z
  • The room was awesome 5 star hotel With a wide open and smiling emotion Thank you very much for your hospitality If I want to travel to Berkeley again, I will be here again Full of energy and good memories Happy and successful joy In the shelter of the angels

    Mansour2019-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • Joy is a great host! Very thoughtful, polite and accomodating :)

    Julia2019-06-14T00:00:00Z
  • Travelers may encounter unexpected and delightful intangibles, as I did, that may take your stay beyond mere comfortable and convenient accommodations. I encourage everyone to stay here. Joy is, to put it simply, a wonderful person.

    Kathleen2019-05-06T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I stayed at Joy's place for 1 month (April 2019). I took a short internship at UC Berkeley. Joy is not only a great host, she is also a wonderful person. She was very helpful with various recommendations: where to go, how to get somewhere, where to rent a car etc. I like the house and how all things are organized. There is a nice kitchen, so guests are welcome to cook if they want. There is a wonderful farmer's market near the house, where you can buy fresh fruits and vegetables. The metro station (North Berkeley) is not far from the house (less than 10 min walk), UC Berkeley is about 30 min walk. I usually walked from the house to university as the weather is pretty nice in April and the area is safe. I wish everyone a pleasant stay at this place. Irina

    A sweet home base with two full bedrooms. Steps to all the bustling shops and award-winning restaurants of Solano avenue. I live in the unit upstairs with my family and share the backyard (trampoline!). Dear guests - We are taking precautions to make sure our home is clean and safe. Door knobs and surfaces are disinfected before new guests arrive. This is a difficult time to travel, but once you arrive, our home continues to be a beautiful and peaceful haven.
    One bedroom has a very comfortable queen bed. The back bedroom has a twin. Spacious living room has a pull-out couch and chaise. Kitchen is fully equipped for cooking, with full size fridge, stove, sink and breakfast nook. Bathroom has a shower but no bathtub. There is a washer/dryer for your use within the unit.
    We are in Albany's Solano corridor, a wonderful safe neighborhood close to Berkeley (1 mile) and San Francisco (12 miles, with toll). Albany is famous for it's great schools, safe neighborhoods, and some of the best cuisine in the country just minutes away.
  • Great, safe neighborhood with lots of space to walk your dog! Parked my car in the driveway directly in front which was very nice! Full kitchen with all of the amenities available. Very clean and spacious. The only very slight issue was I was awakened every morning at 7- 7:30 am by a lot of loud running and stuff upstairs ( I think it was little kids and I know they can’t do much about that!) just tough when you work late and get woken up so early! Otherwise I loved it and would definitely stay again!

    Kelly2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, excellent coffee right around the corner, perfect for a quick work trip!

    Brian2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • What a beautiful space!! Location is absolutely AMAZING! Rose was a great host and communicated well! You could really see the thought and love that was put into the space. Loved staying there. I brought my 18 month old with me and it felt completely safe to have her run around inside and the best part is she slept well! Would love to visit again!

    Sabrina2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful home in a perfect location! Rose & John were amazing hosts and their home was a great size with lots of personal touches to help make our stay even more comfortable. We loved the decor, everything was very clean and thoughtfully put together. Thank you again!

    Sara2020-02-20T00:00:00Z

    Lauren2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • This place is great! The best part is the location - you can walk to everything. Additionally, the space is super clean, well-stocked with what you'll need, and Rose is super communicative. Would stay again!

    Yolanda2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • The space was very clean. Parking right in front of the doorway entrance. Coffee was available which is always nice. Backyard area was pleasant. Heat works very well. Washer and dryer are quiet and efficient. Overall I had a very nice experience at this location. Its only a short walk to a coffee shop, deli or pharmacy. Would stay here again if given the opportunity.
