Places to stay in Berkeley
Traditional Japanese architecture tucked away in a great Berkeley neighborhood. Peaceful and quiet but just a few blocks to UC Berkeley, all the restaurants of the "Gourmet Ghetto", and the North Berkeley Bart station. WE ARE AVAILABLE FOR HOSTING. DUE TO CORONAVIRUS, WE REQUIRE THAT NO MORE THAN 2 GUESTS STAY, WITH NO OHER VISITORS ALLOWED AND WE CAN NOT ACCOMODATE REQUESTS FOR EARLY CHECK IN OR LATE CHECKOUT. Berkeley Short Term Rental Registration # ZCSTR2017-0007
Traditional Japanese building with Tatami mats, organic queen size futon, and an "Ofuro"- a deep and luxurious soaking tub (similar feel to a hot tub). Entering the tub requires agility as it is high and you have to stand on a bench, sit on the edge of the tub, and swing your legs around. If you have any questions about that please ask (and see pictures). Lots of natural light with five skylights. Older wooden building with a somewhat rustic feel. The woven grass tatami mat floors have a noticeable smell of dry grass which we find to be lovely, but may not be for everyone. Comfortably sleeps 2 in new all natural foam mattress. Minimal kitchen with small fridge, tea kettle, and small toaster oven. We use fragrance free and non-toxic cleaning materials and provide Dr. Bronners hand soap. There is a fan available for use.
Peaceful neighborhood just minutes from downtown Berkeley and UC Berkeley. Close to amenities including restaurants, coffee (Philz!), grocery stores, Farmers' market (Thursday afternoons), ice cream parlors, beauty salons, and drugstores.
  • This place is very well designed for its theme. My wife and I only stayed one night and wanted to stay more. The bathtub is uniquely relaxing as well as the skylights through out the place. The moon was so bright that we didn’t use any electricity and let the moonlight shine in. So strongly recommend this place if you’re passing through San Francisco area.

  • Zan and Rainbows tea garden is a slice of Japan plopped in the middle of Berkeley. It’s lovely and peaceful; you feel like you’re in a different world. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a different and fun Airbnb experience!

  • Such a cool space! My sister was visiting from Japan so we picked this to give me a bit of a taste, and she really liked it compared to the accommodations like that she has seen in Japan. She said it was basically a bigger version with a more comfortable bed. Check in instructions were very clear and we had a breeze getting in and out.

  • Laura and Kiran’s place is a hidden gem of the bay. We didn’t want to leave, because it was so beautiful and relaxing. Everything we needed was provided, and there was much thought out into making sure our stay was enjoyable.

    Mary2020-04-27T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cottage house surrounded by tall trees, tweeting birds, cute cats and deers. An amazing value proposition for a getaway from the daily routine in the city. Great weekend plan for couples.

    Diego2020-04-22T00:00:00Z
  • Laura and Kiran were wonderful hosts to my brother and his wife. They were incredibly thoughtful about communicating and meeting their needs, and my brother and his wife had an amazing, relaxing weekend.

    Maiya2020-04-19T00:00:00Z
  • You’ll enjoy this quiet place. We got away for a “staycation” here and really liked our time here. The creek is babbling outside the bedroom window and the hot tub was all ours!

    Thomas2020-04-16T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful location, loved the hot tub and close proximity to the Tilden Nature Area. Would recommend!

    Tom2020-04-14T00:00:00Z
  • Words don’t do justice to just how majestic and nice this listing is. The property is very beautiful, very private and you even can wake up to sound of the creek that’s right outside the window. The jacuzzi was nice and hot and let’s you seen the sunset. Also, the hosts were very accommodating and quick to respond. I will definitely be staying here again in the near future.

    Montrey2020-04-12T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay! Kiran and Laura are so wonderful and kind and their place is beautiful, cozy and has everything you need to get away and disconnect

    This one bedroom is perfect for two people but does not accept pets.

  • Bumped into Amber when I was with my sister and she was really sweet ♥️ the communication was quick and the check in was easy. The space is a lot bigger than I expected which was a plus. The tub with the jets and the cd with the birds was even more of a plus, super calming. Smelled like home, loved all of the decor, it was definitely exactly what I was looking for. Will come back to stay!

    Shiloh2020-04-08T00:00:00Z

    It's a min away from UC BERKELEY and 15 mins walk to downtown Berkeley Bart station. Great place for someone looking for quiet and cozy place. Complimentary tea provided from House Of Curries ( restaurant located downstairs)
    The room has attached private bathroom.
    Berkeley city is usually student friendly area. It is also one of the safest area I know.
  • Bishal responds extremely fast! The room is what it is! Simple and cheap. Probably best if you just need a place to sleep and head out since the rooms pretty bare!

    Yu2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent location for Berkeley,very vibrant safe area.Relaxed and friendly, you’re literally minutes and in many cases seconds away from things.The Belgian waffles down the street were awesome ! Bishal was a friendly helpful host.The room was exactly as advertised.Water pressure was great in the shower.A few things that did surprise me.The room was very cool even during those crazy few heatwave days we just had.Secondly It was very quiet in there,and also I had imagined being above a Indian restaurant to be constantly smelling food and spices but that was not the case at all.I would stay at Bishals again it was great value.

    David2019-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, so many food places nearby. The area is upbeat and safe. Bishal is a great host, he responded to every message in less than 30 mins. The room was clean and sufficient.

    Virginia2020-03-30T00:00:00Z

    Adriana2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Kymi's space is clean and well located. Only a 12 min walk to the Rockridge BART and close to College Ave, which has some great restaurants. Kymi was a great host and very quick to reply to any questions or concerns. The bathroom is a small but over all practical. Its great for one or two people. Highly recommended.

    Our newly remodeled 200 sq ft tiny house is a perfect Berkeley retreat. It is walking distance to BART into San Fran. (1 mile), Cal campus (1 mile), Gourmet Ghetto (world-class cuisine), Berkeley Rose Garden, and the Berkeley Marina (1.5 miles). You’ll love our place because of the light, the comfy bed, and the coziness (it's a tiny house!). It's perfect for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and small families. We have 2 queen size beds including one in a relaxing loft space
    The tiny house is a separate small space, 200 total square feet, located in the back of the main residence. There is a shower, loft bed (please note the loft ceiling is low for those who don't like tight spaces) , Murphy bed and kitchenette in the house. We share a portion of the backyard. The tiny house has a private gated entrance and separate patio. The space was inspired by the tiny house movement. We hope to provide a lovely, relaxing space that fills all the needs of our guests.
    The tiny house resides in the coveted NorthBrae district of Berkeley. It is centrally located in a quiet residential neighborhood. Plenty of street parking is available with no permit required. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful. We are walking distance to amazing restaurants, coffee, grocery markets and BART. Cal campus is 2 miles away or one stop on BART.
  • Very fun place to stay! Quieter and cozier than a hotel and a fun change of pace from that as well!

    Chelsea2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful unique experience! Nice family oriented neighborhood. The tiny house has all the amenities needed and more. I would visit again and again!!

    Alex2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • A cozy well appointed tiny house in north Berkeley that was perfect for us (one grownup and one preteen who could sleep in the loft). Coming from Europe, we appreciated that there were some shops and a nice cafe in walking distance; we walked to BART too.

    Anne2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean and cozy tiny home in a quaint, quiet backyard in Berkeley. Everything you can possibly want or need is a short walk or drive from the home. Great for just staying in and chilling all day, or just crashing after a day of exploring the Bay Area.

    Ethan2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • The space was truly unique and memorable. We’re looking forward to booking with Toby and Sonja again in the future.

    Tanae2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • This space is great, definitely tiny, but perfect for a single traveler. The garden is wonderful and everything leading up to my stay was super easy.

    Ryan2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • A perfect home away from home in a wonderful neighborhood.

    Sarah2020-01-25T00:00:00Z

    ~~UPDATE 3/13: Gigabit fiber coming soon! Note that our neighbor’s house is undergoing a full renovation. While it’s not always consistent, you may hear construction noises on weekday mornings.~~ Glamour + camping = glamping! - Centrally located to BART, UCB, & restaurants - BART (7 blocks) to SF in 25 minutes - Wifi, linens, towels, coffee, & tea provided - Big ol' yard with chickens - One of two Airbnb spots here, so you might meet some other travelers! It's like a hostel, but clean. ;)
    Welcome! Enjoy all the comforts of home in this fabulously restored vintage caravan. Come say hi to the chickens, enjoy coffee and tea in the garden. You'll be close to pretty much everything and BART is 7 blocks away. We look forward to hosting you! The house is on the same property where we live with our 2 small children. We are very family friendly. Come glamp in our little slice of country life. This 1964 Kenskill camper has been fabulously restored and customized so you can play "pretend camp" while enjoying the comforts of home. This is a great spot especially if you've ever been tiny-home-curious. In a previous life, this caravan was the food truck for Katie Cupcake, serving up the delicious treats in Flagstaff, AZ. You're sure to enjoy sweet dreams. ;) We rearranged the interior so it feels much more spacious than the traditional layout. It's really quite nice inside. And yes, there's even a full bathroom with a proper flush toilet, sink, and small separate shower. The stall is short so taller folks need to get creative to shower. Towels and linens provided. Mini kitchen has a working gas range, double sink, microwave and fridge. Coffee and tea provided, plus feel free to gather some eggs for breakfast. Watching "chicken TV" is a relaxing way to enjoy the garden. You may encounter our two kitties, Cowboy and Beebop. Our place is one of those homes that's all front yard, and we positioned this trailer so you can sit at the dinette and enjoy a view of the garden and our silly flock of chickens. Some people ask about safety. We've lived in the East Bay for 20 years, sampling the whole socioeconomic spectrum of neighborhoods. We've felt more at home here in this slice of town that we've felt anywhere else in the Bay Area. Put on your city smarts and you should be A-OK. That being said, there are lots of great places to eat and drink nearby whether you want to walk, bike or drive. Three great new restaurants are nearby: Sideshow (excellent beer garden with delicious dinner options), Cassave Restaurant (delish El Salvadoran grub and a full bar) and Easy Creole (casual, tasty, and fast). Our favorite local spot is Sweet Adeline with delicious pastries and tasty coffee. There's another coffee and sandwich shop, Alchemy Cafe next to Easy Creole. It's straight out of Portlandia. On Tuesdays, there's a farmer's market from 3-7pm just a couple blocks away! Venture a little further and hit up the big Temescal Farmer's market on Sunday mornings. Your hosts are two UCB alums and former co-opers. Lewis is a programmer by day, musician by night. Ginger is a Jill of All Trades, ranging from glassblowing to finance. Jules (age 5) and Pasqual (age 3) are our little greeters. We'll leave you to your own devices, but don't hesitate to ask if you need anything. Thanks for looking and happy travels! ***FAQ*** Q. Is there heat? A. Yes, we provide a space heater that keeps it warm and cozy. Q. Is there hot water? A. Yes, there is a dedicated on-demand water heater for the caravan. Q. If we don't want to share the bed, is there room to put a mat on the ground? A. Kind of, but I wouldn't recommend it. You could fit a mat on the walkway to the bathroom, but then you'd have to step on each other to get around! Q. Do you have luggage storage? A. Sure, we can fit a few pieces of luggage in our supply room. Q. Where do I park? A. Parking is onstreet . If you don't get a spot just outside, you can usually find one on the block. Watch for street sweeping signs (a few hours out of the month). Q. Can I bring an animal? A. No. We need to keep the space allergen-free. Q. What about assistance animals? A. Due to past trauma, dogs of any size are not allowed to enter the property as they pose a health and safety risk with our particular circumstances.
    For some reason Airbnb doesn't know how to place us on the map. We're on the same block as Lois the Pie Queen -- a neighborhood fixture and solid greasy spoon diner. Although our neighborhood is not the prettiest, we have a great community and are happy to be raising a family here.
  • Comfortable, adorable, and affordable

  • Awesome space. I felt like I had stepped into a portal and hopped back to the 70s, then had my soul licked by a child who was born at a Grateful Dead concert or burning man! I loved it. It’s the Barbie doll caravan that I always wanted for my non existent hippie Barbie!

    Carlie2020-02-19T00:00:00Z

    Kelcie2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Definitely a out-of the-norm experience in Oakland. Chickens, gardens, funky/groovy camper that is both unique and functional. Enjoyed the fact that they accommodated a last minute booking, as well as, an additional day which I booked the following morning. Definitely not your run-of the-mill generic hotel room. This place has personality and both privacy and comfort for a memorable experience that is worthy of sharing.

    Daniel2020-01-30T00:00:00Z

    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.
  • Beautiful, clean, private space, hosted by a lovely family in a beautiful, quaint neighborhood with everything you could want in walking distance! Definitely would stay here again!

    Carmen2020-05-03T00:00:00Z

  • 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!

    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

    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.

    Berkeley is a wonderful city - it's eclectic, full of culture: art, theater, music (including lots of street music), a great place to rent a bike and explore our huge regional park or the coastline along San Francisco Bay. There's hiking nearby, jogging trails as well. We love our coffee, fresh bread, cheeses, artisanal beer and farmers markets. Downtown San Francisco is about forty minutes away via our rapid transit system, BART. Our home is located in a quiet, tree-lined residential neighborhood near the UC Berkeley Campus. We walk everywhere - downtown, to different shopping districts. We also have plenty of street parking.
  • I would 100% recommended anyone visiting the Bay Area to stay at this Airbnb. It’s a really nice spot located in an amazing neighborhood. Definitely check out Indian Rock Park, which is only a couple of minutes to walk to from the location. The Airbnb is filled with everything you will need for your stay. Susan is an amazing host who is willing to work with you! Can’t wait to come back soon!

    Riyanna2020-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • Susan’s space is nicely located in North Berkeley. Susan was very easy to communicate with, and this was a great value (especially given the location).

    Phil2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Susan was very welcoming and great at communicating prior to and during the stay. My mom and her friend really liked her place and her amazing hospitality! They spent a great week visiting San Francisco and surroundings. Highly reccomended!

    Gabriele2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Well located space, creatively burrowed into a house with interesting, tasteful decorations, a comfortable bed and all the amenities one could wish for. We enjoyed our stay and our hosts are clearly people who are willing to go the extra mile for their guests.

    Karen And Randy2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Super easy check-in and a great location.

    Nicolas2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Susan was an excellent and caring host. The space was clean and well appointed. The personal touches made you feel welcome right from the start. The coffee, tea, wine and beer in the mini fridge and bowls of fruit and candy were much appreciated. Susan is on site for any help you may need while in Berkeley, but out of sight if you are familiar. The space is walkable to the Gourmet Ghetto and it’s fine restaurants. It is also walkable to Solano Avenue shops and markets. The space was warmly decorated and it had everything you will need to enjoy your time in Berkeley. Thank you for a great stay.

    Catherine2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • A cute place within walking distance to UC Berkeley, and local restaurants/shops. Susan was a warm, friendly and welcoming host, lots of nice personal touches. She also gave us some great recommendations and local area information.

    Great southwest exposure with 3 bridge views, SF Bay, in a very safe and charming neighborhood in wonderful North Berkeley. Easy walk to Gourmet Ghetto, about 20 min walk to UC campus. Shared bath. Room has a couch and desk as well as bed. WiFi.
    Big old Berkeley brown shingle cluttered,messy house, with 2 friendly cats. Room feels like grandma's sewing room, but without the grandma (yet) or any actual sewing getting done. Very casual environment. No smoking, of course, and respect for quiet hours a given. You have a shared bath, and can use second bathroom. if that one's occupied. It's myself and my long-term housemate/tenant; we both work at UC Berkeley. My college-age son is home summers and vacations as well. I've lived in the area all my life, so I'm a good resource for questions about restaurants, arts, things to do, etc. North Berkeley is a wonderful, leafy, safe neighborhood, and the food choices around town are beyond amazing, some of the best anywhere! I may be able to help with ride to/from BART sometimes if you need it. Antique double-bed with firm modern mattress, sofa could sleep one as well. Towels, sheets furnished. We'd love to introduce you to our great town! Perfect spot for visiting the UC Berkeley campus!
    North Berkeley is home to the world-famous Gourmet Ghetto, including the iconic start of the new food movement, Chez Panisse. The nearby CheeseBoard is considered tied for best cheese shop in America, and serves a daily vegetarian pizza, and great pastries. The original Peet's coffee is also there. Just up the hill we have the lovely Berkeley Rose Garden and Codornices Park. Campus is also close, with all it has to offer, including the option of daily use at the Rec Sports Facility. Nearby Solano Ave has even more shopping, restaurants, a great bookstore, etc. Full of trees and very eclectic architecture - my house is over 100 years old!
  • Very pleasant place, thoughtful welcoming hot chocolate, warm hosts

    Gabriel2020-03-16T00:00:00Z

    Kent2020-03-13T00:00:00Z

    Emily2020-03-08T00:00:00Z

    All are welcome at our beautiful peaceful garden studio. It is the back of our historic home, the oldest standing structure in Berkeley! We are close to BART with easy access to SF and UC Berkeley and two blocks from Berkeley’s famous Fourth Street shopping area with unique boutiques, great restaurants, and coffee houses. Entry is private and the garden is yours to enjoy. The mini fridge, microwave, fresh ground Peet's, tea, and Laurie's famous granola will help you feel right at home.
    Important note: We have always been very serious about our cleaning, maintaining a 5.00 review score. However, in early March we attended a workshop on how to properly clean and disinfect touchable surfaces to prevent transmission of Corona Virus. We are now treating our touchable surfaces with 99% alcohol and bleach-based solutions between guests. On to happier details..... Our studio accommodates two adults comfortably. The main room is 23' x 12' and the bathroom is large. The entrance is private and windows look out onto our peaceful backyard garden. South-facing windows and high ceilings create an airy sunny vibe. There is business class high speed wifi and cable TV. Our guests love our Leesa memory foam mattress fitted with down comforter and plenty of extra pillows and blankets. (Note: This is a great supportive mattress for bad backs.) The kitchenette station is equipped with microwave, mini fridge, and dishes. It is appropriate for preparing breakfast, lunch or heating up leftovers for dinner. It includes an electric kettle, Chemex coffee pot, assorted coffees, teas, cocoa, soup, and some condiments. We provide some additional snacks, cold drinks, a yogurt, milk for coffee, and Laurie's famous homemade granola. The bathroom has a large immaculate claw foot bath tub/shower combo. Towels, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, a hair dryer, and iron are all available. This is an old house but not a drafty cold old house. The morning sun streams into the bank of south-facing windows. Heat is controlled by a Nest thermostat modulated by motion sensors that keep the place at a comfortable temperature when you are in. We hope you will enjoy the garden patio seating area during your stay. Smoking is fine in the backyard but not in the house. There is plenty of free street parking nearby. This is one of the few residential areas in Berkeley where extended free parking is available. This is also a safe neighborhood! You can relax and enjoy walking to BART, strolling to Fourth Street, or walking to or from your car in the evening. Note: We appreciate cleanliness when we travel so we go the extra mile to provide you with a very clean place in which you can truly feel comfortable. We are going all out and wiping down EVERY touchable surface with disinfectant solution between guests during the COVD-19 global outbreak. It takes a lot of time, but that's what we would want if we were your guests.
    We are on a quiet residential street but two short blocks from Fourth Street, the premiere shopping and dining area in Berkeley. Outdoors: This is a terrific launch point for visiting some of the premiere non-touristy outdoor gems in our area. The Berkeley Marina is less than a mile away. Enjoy Bay vistas as you walk the short trails or opt to join the Bay Trail, a 500 mile trail along the edge of the Bay. Laurie, an avid sailor, would be happy to steer you towards a sailing or kayaking adventure. Just give us a heads up before you arrive. Just to our East, Tilden Park and the East Bay Regional Parks have great trails, from one mile easy walks to a Bay vista to some seriously challenging cross country hikes. We have books in your room on local hikes around the Bay as well as the Point Reyes area.
  • An absolutely beautiful, clean, comfortable, thoughtfully appointed space!! The patio was also wonderful to sit in. Ron and Laurie were easy to communicate with, and extended a warm hospitality during my stay. The studio is also in a great location near shops and food. Thank you!

    Sonya2020-05-05T00:00:00Z
  • Ron and Laurie were excellent hosts. They were very helpful and caring as the COVID-19 crisis was unfolding. The house was sparkling clean and very comfortable. I highly recommend their place.

    Maile2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you so much for such a wonderful stay! Every thoughtful detail was beautiful both inside and out.

    Erin2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • A great place to stay in West Berkeley! I would definitely stay here again. So convenient to walk to 4th street for shops and restaurants. All of the amenities provided by Ron and Laurie were so thoughtful and much appreciated! It was great to have some complimentary snacks on hand. The only downside was the noise from the trains, but ear plugs were provided.

    Olivia2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Ron & Laurie’s place exceeds all expectations! They are such friendly and thoughtful hosts, they have thought of every detail that a traveler may need and truly go above and beyond for their guests. The space is wonderful, very clean and comfortable. Amenities are above and beyond - snacks, homemade granola, and fantastic quality coffee. I had a wonderful stay and can’t wait to return!

    Tareyn2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • This place is has an open, spacious feel with a lovely view of the garden. Very comfortable bed, and lots of thoughtful amenities. The location is great, with restaurants within walking distance. Parking was a breeze. Communication and check in were so easy! Thank you, Ron and Laurie!

    Mary Lynn And Jim2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Wow, this place is exceptional. The hosts are thoughtful and respectful and sweet. The location can’t be beat- we enjoyed meandering out in the morning to find cafes. We really noticed the thoughtful and stylish design put into every detail. Thank you!

    Raven2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Great place that’s close to everything. Came for a wedding and had some extra time to explore; Laurie had great suggestions and advice! Would highly recommend Ron and Laurie’s place to anyone staying in the area.

    Beautiful backyard cottage with modern interior and green roof. A posh tiny house experience! Comfortable, lofted double bed, with new, larger sofa and TV underneath. The kitchenette has a microwave, toaster, coffee machine, electric kettle and mini fridge. There is no stove. Restaurants and coffee shops in easy walking distance. About 1 mile from campus and main downtown area. Bart is also about a mile away, so it's a quick hop to San Francisco. zoning permit: ZCSTR2018-0135
    The cottage is modern, clean, and also on the small side. While it could sleep three people, it's probably better suited for 1-2. Please note there is an extra person fee of $25 per night for a third guest, as well as a two night minimum for three guests. There is a one-time extra $30 charge for two guests sleeping separately due to the higher volume of laundry. The bed is lofted, only accessible by stairs.
    Some nearby places to eat The Homemade Café is a popular breakfast spot (two blocks away on the corner of Dwight and Sacramento). Mo’Joe Café has great coffee and serves breakfast and lunch (one block away on Sacramento and Blake). Caffe Chiave is also a great coffee shop, about a 12 minute walk (at the corner of Dwight and San Pablo). I’ve really enjoyed the food and atmosphere at Longbranch Saloon (on the same block as Caffe Chiave). Closed Mondays Le Pho is a Vietnamese restaurant directly across the street from Caffe Chiave, and has come highly recommended by guests. Standard Fare is wonderful for casual, yet delectable breakfast and lunch. It’s owned by a former Chez Panisse chef (located on the corner of 8th and Carleton). La Marcha is a wonderful tapas bar on San Pablo, near University. La Capilla has great tacos and burritos. It’s on University close to San Pablo St. Eureka! has also come highly recommended from a guest and it’s in downtown Berkeley. Creekwood is a new restaurant serving Cal-Italian fare. The food is fresh and delicious. It’s located at 3121 Sacramento St, by 67th and is closed Mondays. Teni East Kitchen is my new favorite restaurant! The chef owner worked at Burma Superstar for several years and just opened her own place. It’s located at 4015 Broadway in Oakland and is open daily for lunch and dinner. Kirala and Kirala 2 are my favorite places for sushi in Berkeley. Kirala 2 is located in the Epicurious Garden in the “Gourmet Ghetto” on Shattuck in North Berkeley and is more of a take-out place, while Kirala is a restaurant on Ward and Shattuck in South Berkeley. Berkeley Bowl West is a great grocery store (on Heinz, near 9th Street, a 4 min. drive). Cheeseboard Pizza and Chez Panisse are two well known Berkeley eateries, both located on Shattuck. Expect long lines for the famous pizza! I love Summer Kitchen for excellent wood fired pizzas and little to no wait. It’s located on College Avenue, off of Ashby.
  • Nina’s space is beautiful! The home was comfortable and provided the escape we needed.

    Tiffany2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • We loved this cottage. Away from the hustle and bustle but just a few miles from downtown. The house was so clean and just as described. We will be back!

    Pascal2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • This place is excellent. It’s really well thought out with many lovely design elements. For a small space, there is plenty of room where it’s needed. The location is close to many great restaurants and things to do, yet it is SO QUIET for sleeping. Highly recommended.

    Mia2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place and wonderful host. The place was very modern and clean. Nina made sure everything was okay and we gladly appreciate the attention. There were even snacks for us when we arrived. All and all great place.

    Patrick2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • My stay at Nina's backyard bungalow was excellent. The space was beautifully and thoughtfully laid out. My stay was restful and close to downtown Berkeley. This spot had everything I needed. Nina also added the sweet touches of fresh flowers and a stocked cabinet with snacks and toiletries. There were so many touches that made this stay enjoyable.

    Olivia2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • I loved staying in Nina's cottage. Everything is as described and pictured. It was perfect for one person but would be great for two as well. Highly recommend, would stay there again.

    John2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • I love staying at Nina's place. It's so well thought out, clean and cozy. I stay here a lot!

    A private in-law studio with own entrance close to everything: Ashby Bart (0.6 miles), Bay Bridge on-ramp, Emeryville, Rockridge, Berkeley, Telegraph Ave, and UC Berkeley. It's a cozy, clean, and minimalist space with a queen bed, new modern bathroom, and kitchenette (fridge, kitchen sink, kettle, microwave, and counter space). The kitchenette is stocked with flatware, plates, mugs, glasses, bowls, coffee cone and filters, and dish soap. Plenty of parking on street directly outside of in-law.
  • This apartment had an easy check-in process and was sparkling clean! my boyfriend really loved the shower (he's weird and always needs to have good shower pressure LOL). we were right where we needed to be near my friends house. if you ever stay here, definitely check out the Wolfhound Bar for drinks and Lois the Pie Queen for breakfast/food!

    Bridget2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • This is a clean and private place. I highly recommend it.

    Bryan2020-03-13T00:00:00Z

    Benjamin2020-03-08T00:00:00Z

    Elijah2020-02-10T00:00:00Z

  • This place was in a great location near BART, had easy access to Berkeley and Oakland. The space was nice and clean. Perfect for not needing to be in the room for long periods of time. The bathroom was very upscale and nice. A little cold in the evening and the small heater wasn’t working, but all in all a nice place.

    Enjoy this unique and cozy cottage that's a quick walk to UC Berkeley, one block from College Ave, and close to BART. The apartment has a private entrance and is located in a safe and idyllic location. You will love the charming quiet forest like atmosphere.
    This is a large cottage studio apartment which includes hardwood floors throughout, a comfortable queen-sized bed, full kitchen, wifi, and cable TV. This is a great place to use as your base camp for your Bay Area adventures.
    This apartment is located in the Elmwood neighborhood in Berkeley, one of the best neighborhoods in the Bay Area. UC Berkeley Campus, which is a giant park full of Redwoods and streams is a 5 min walk. 100's of restaurants and shops are within walking vicinity of this apartment including College Ave which is one block away and Shattuck and Telegraph Ave's which are 5-10 mins away.
  • We loved our visit! Super easy, in a cute little neighborhood, and located down a couple blocks to a beautiful trail that leads up to the top of the hills that overlooks the entire bay!!! Great communication between the host and myself, we arrived extremely late/early in the morning and were able to let ourselves in and slept in until check out.

    Kyli2020-04-20T00:00:00Z

    We are a 10 min. walk to Ashby BART; average ride into SF - about 20 min. Emeryville (Amtrak Station) Oakland, U.C. Berkeley are all close by. Completely private; gated keypad entry through black bamboo & rose hedges. Envisioned primarily as a romantic bedroom, the cottage is also equipped for working travelers. Large bathroom can be opened to secluded courtyard garden. WiFi, fridge, microwave, coffee Walk to: Berkeley Bowl West market, Creekwood Restaurant, cafes, good coffee, bike rentals.
    Please Note: Check-in any time after 2PM; check out by 11AM The Cottage is hidden on a tree lined street in an unassuming residential neighborhood next to our small Victorian house. It has its own gated entrance and pathway through grasses, mature trees and a hedge of wild roses. A second gate (keyless entry) allows entrance to the continuance of the pathway through an eclectic garden of fruit trees, flower and berry bushes, luxurious black bamboo, & artworks by the hosts. Guests love the eastern views from the large high windows; especially good in the mornings. The views change with the seasons; autumn leaves and burgeoning fruit from the persimmon tree, the riotous golden yellow cascade of rosa banksia, the starkly beautiful bark of the Dawn Redwood tree in winter; maybe delicate pink apple blossom petals swirling in a spring wind. Always, (it being Squirrel End and all) there are the many entertaining squirrels playing high up in the giant oak tree. While you won't need them for privacy, we have provided black-out shades for jet-lagged guests who would like to sleep in, and those who find themselves visiting during the 3 or 4 days of the year on which the very early morning sun comes blazing through. If you are lucky enough to visit on a warm day, take a refreshing shower and then a long soak in the big claw foot tub. The bathroom doors open to the totally private small outdoor patio. Actually, guests have said it is just as satisfying even on the coldest of days.
    Our modest residential neighborhood, at the intersection of Berkeley, Oakland and Emeryville, is changing rapidly. Our house was built in 1900 and we arrived in 1979. There are more and new buildings going up, more new places to do everything. In the midst of the hubbub, the Cottage at Squirrel End is an oasis of calm and quiet.
  • Linda and Dan are class acts. They ensured that I felt safe and secure during a less than safe and secure time. Immaculately clean and beautiful space. I would stay there anytime I was in the Bay Area.

    Jill2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Our hosts were extremely thoughtful and kind and gracious people. The space was perfect for having a place to come back to after walking all day and sightseeing. Linda's skill with gardening and floral arrangement made the entryway a beautiful place to sit out in and made it especially nice while getting ready for a wedding. The location is close enough to walk to the Bart stations without much hassle so if you don't want to take a taxi or Uber it's a beautiful walk to the station.

    Corey2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Such a wonderful place to stay in the East bay! The check in was super easy, Dan was helpful and communicative. Perfect place for a couple of nights in Berkeley. Clean, peaceful and relaxing.

    Sabrina2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our stay at Dan and Linda’s cottage. This was my first trip to Berkeley and the Bay Area. The cottage Dan built was very cute and cozy (not in a tiny way, just a super cute way). As far as amenities, there was a coffee pot and electric tea kettle (with coffee and tea), refrigerator, fluffy towels, shampoo/conditioner/soap. The fresh flowers were a nice touch. I would mention that there is not a TV, so bring your iPad or computer if you want to watch movies after a long day of being tourist! Lol. We were trying to disconnect from work so we didn’t bring laptops along so we ended up streaming movies on our phone. There was WiFi so that was not an issue. There is a little market/grocer just around the corner, and a liquor store about a block away. We mostly drove everywhere because it was a bit of a walk and we were tired from the hills of San Francisco. The location was very central for all the things we wanted to do. We went up to Napa/Sonoma for one day, Muir Woods another day, and spent a couple days in the city, at Chinatown and at the piers. We also explored Berkeley and visited the Berkeley Bowl. Everything was less than an hour away. Dan and Linda are great hosts and bring a personal touch to their property. Thanks for letting us stay at your cottage.

  • Tranquil abode in a regular neighborhood. The nature setting adds to the beautiful interior design. It is an extremely clean place, bed and linens just perfect. No stairs and easy access which was a nice plus. It was almost like being in a hotel room surrounded by nature, with birds singing in the trees. Loved the bathroom. It was just perfect before a major exam where I needed space and quiet to study, along with quick access to both uptown Berkeley Oakland.

    Erin2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Great place for a quick getaway or staycation! Very tranquil and scenic!

    Amber2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Super cute and romantic Airbnb! Amazing for the value and close to many stores. The area was close by a lot of activities. Linda & Dan had such great communication. Really had a great time in their space. (:

    Kaylyn2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • A great and private space that is close to both Oakland and San Francisco via car. Linda and Dan provided everything needed and were communicative throughout our stay.

    Our tucked-away, quiet studio is a 5 minute walk to UC Berkeley and 20 minutes to the Gourmet Ghetto. The space has amazing natural light with 4 skylights and garden facing windows. There is a patio deck with table and chairs to enjoy meals outdoors. Previously an art studio, our space is detached building sharing no walls. A calm home base for visiting Berkeley or the UC. Newly remodeled in October 2019. The space features a kitchenette, closet space, fast WiFi, queen bed, and a writing desk.
    Our favorite part of the studio is dining outside on the deck under the many tall trees! Birds and squirrels often come to visit making this place feel secluded and serene, yet it's a twenty minute walk downhill to the most central parts of Berkeley and the train station. The kitchenette is very simple - best for a meal or two but not every meal. There is a water filter, hot water kettle and a coffee maker (induction heater also available - just ask). Most exciting is the brand new bathroom with Heath tiles and a rain shower with a view of the garden. You will be staying in the Painting Studio 2.0 so to speak. We have just finished a major remodel (in October 2019) of the studio including new wood floors, insulation, new cabinetry, new closet, new lighting and electrical and new interior paint. We put in some nice touches such as a Subzero Fridge with freezer and built in custom solid maple floating nite stands. We hope you enjoy the studio and find it comfortable!
    Right below our neighborhood is UC Berkeley Campus, Downtown Berkeley and the North Berkeley Gourmet Zone for incredible dining! Chez Panisse, Cheeseboard Collective & Pizza, Thursday Farmers Market, and so much more. Right above our street is Tilden Regional Park and the UC Berkeley Botanical Gardens. Downtown Berkeley is a 20 minute walk (all downhill).
  • Had a really lovely stay here. It's peaceful, private and quiet - feels like you're nestled away in the woods. I especially loved the backyard and neighborhood. The space is beautifully decorated and has everything you need. Noah was also a great host - communicative, attentive and easy-going. Would absolutely come stay again!

    Linda2020-04-04T00:00:00Z
  • Super sweet place! Noah was really responsive and provided a couple items I needed that weren't listed. Would return next time I need a restful place to work and recharge.

    Brad2020-03-28T00:00:00Z
  • The studio is a really great retreat: spacious, light filled, peaceful. The yard is a joy, and I spent a lovely hour in the afternoon reading and basking in the sunlight. The studio is a nice 10 minute walk to campus, or about 20 minutes down to shops and restaurants. Highly recommended!

    Nick2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • This place felt like a true retreat: quiet, clean, scenic. Great for meditation/prayer/writing/reflection. A word of warning: don’t try to haul a heavy suitcase up those steep hills unless you are in good shape!

    Krista2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • This is such a charming studio full of natural light. Noah has thought of everything to make for a very comfortable stay and provided great tips for places to eat around Berkeley.

    Lisa2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • This place was gorgeous!! Perfect lighting, no TV , relatively cold but, had heaters , very earthy. This is definitely a creative space, made me feel like working. Would definitely come back. Thank you, such a great place Noah.

    Albert2020-02-12T00:00:00Z

  • I stayed here almost 10 days and I m extending my stay. This is a wonderful place, highly recommended. It has everything I need, much better than I expected. Super clean, quiet, sufficient suppliers, convinient location just one block away from shopping center and bank. The bed is very comfortable and shower place as well. Karen is a wonderful host, quick response to my message. Would definitely comeback!

    Serena2020-03-25T00:00:00Z
  • Karen & Mike's place is beautiful, simple, convenient! We loved everything about it and also enjoyed its proximity to local attractions such as the climbing gym and nature. I personally loved the water pressure in the shower and the cool electric fireplace. The hosts were extra-accommodating with our schedule due to COVID-19 and we were incredibly thankful for their kind hospitality. Endless thanks to them—we definitely want to come back when things improve for the country.

    Catt2020-03-17T00:00:00Z

  • James’ cottage is among the nicest AirBnBs I’ve experienced. It looks precisely as the pictures indicate, and every bit as clean and tidy. The place is very complete (full kitchen, bath, bedroom, and living room) and totally separate from the house it sits behind, so it’s quite private and comfortable. James included some very nice touches – including quaint, farmhouse-style furnishings, and a working manual typewriter! Lots of amenities (kitchen appliances and large TV (with adjustable position to be viewed from Bedroom, Livingroom, or Kitchen.) I can’t stress enough how clean, and in tiptop shape everything was. And there was even a parking place in James’ driveway. I very much enjoyed my stay in Berkeley, and recommend James’ cottage without hesitation.

    Shingi2020-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • Secluded cottage by James allows for a private and quiet stay right in the heart of Berkeley. We were lucky enough to have the parking work out for our 2 cars during the Martin Luther Day long weekend right on the property thus avoiding the 2 hour street limit drama. We as a couple also enjoyed the noise-free privacy afforded by the distance of the apartment from the street. Jim has thoughtfully provided all the necessary things you would want in a space. Ample heating for the bedroom, an extra space heater for living areas, a nice spacious kitchen, and perfectly smooth sheets to sleep in, which would immediately make you feel at home. Give the cottage a try, and you won't regret it!

    Karan2020-01-22T00:00:00Z

  • Very glad we picked this place to stay in while we spent my birthday here in Berkeley. Such a unique and charming little cottage! We instantly felt sooo cozy once we checked in and seeing the rain fall on the skylights was an added bonus. The small touches like the heated mattress and the umbrella - which we were so thankful he provided because it was pouring and we were exploring downtown on foot - made our stay even better! We are thinking about booking again in the future!

    Emily2019-11-30T00:00:00Z

    Benjamin2020-04-18T00:00:00Z
  • Larry’s spot was great for a weekend stay. The airbnb is the downstairs portion to his house and is secluded from the rest of the house ensuring privacy. There’s DVDs and books if every genre so there’s plenty to keep you occupied during ur stay. Larry was accomodating of early checkin and had good communication. I’m from the Southbay and rarely come up to the north eastbay so it was a good change of scenery. Would recommend staying here no matter if youre local or a tourist.

    Garrett2020-04-12T00:00:00Z
  • Larry’s place is sparkling clean and very cozy. The location is great, and quiet, with a beautiful view of the bay. We loved our visit!

    Chrysoula2020-03-29T00:00:00Z
  • Repeat stay with Larry. Great place, location, and host.

    Tony2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing view and great location! Would definitely love to stay here again.

    Armine2020-02-24T00:00:00Z

    Stylish, light, modern studio with all you need for a basic overnight or a leisurely stay. You can cook with the Breville oven, burners or microwave, but really, why, when there is so much good food in nearby Temescal. For me, the studio calls out to read in the comfy chair, work at the West Elm breakfast bar or curl up for a good night's sleep. If none of those appeal, just sip some wine and stare at the art! EZ street parking. Hosting 4 guests is an experiment. Pls read 'The Space' if ur>2.
    BECAUSE OF COVID-19, I ASK THAT YOU CONTACT ME BY PHONE AS SOON AS YOU BOOK TO DISCUSS PROCEDURES. THANK YOU. Also, please contact me about booking longer term. Note - If you are considering booking the place for more than two people, pls read the last paragraph in this section. PARKING - Easy street parking can fill up late at night, so if you plan to arrive late, please let me know and I'll make room for you in the driveway. OUTDOOR SPACE - Right now, the area directly outside the studio has a table and chairs for hanging out. It also has a bit of an overflow from my woodshop/work area, though there is no noisy work going on. When the weather is nice, you are welcome to hang out at the table and chairs, but please keep in mind that I haven't "set up" this area for guests yet, so you'll be dealing with a less pretty space than the interior of the studio. Think of it as aesthetically "at your own risk," caveat visitor, etc. But, you can enjoy the sun from there. LOVING CANINE GREETER - I have a medium-sized dog. I promise that you won't ever find a warmer, more loving, gentle soul. Pure bred Oakland Street Dog. She is rarely in the studio, but there's a good chance she may be part of your greeting party as you come and go. She will be happy to see you and to be pet and well-received. She also understands "no" and is definitely better behaved than I was at her age. BOOKING FOR MORE THAN TWO - The space is luxurious for two and really super tight for four. I'm offering it to four people as an experiment. I've got a comfortable cot with an inflatable mattress. With two beds in there, there will be very little floor space to walk around. It would be a great, cheap spot to crash, but not to hang. If you are booking for more than two, please check in with me so we can be clear on your expectations. I want you to be happy and to be clear on what your experience will be.
    Located a few blocks from the Berkeley border, three blocks from Children's Hospital and six blocks from Oakland's buzzing, hip Temescal District. There's a great cafe a block away for your morning cappuccino. After that, just walk or drive six blocks to Temescal district where you have your choice of Burmese, Korean, Thai fusion, Japanese, Caribbean, Italian, Fried chicken and more ... and more food and shopping. Hang outdoors at Temescal Brewery. Walking or driving north from my place, you will find Sweet Adeline, one of Berkeley's sweetest cafes, fresh baked goods, yum, etc. Also, there is an amazing Farmer's Market Tuesday afternoon/evenings. Half a mile after that is Ashby BART and a little further is Berkeley Bowl, Berkeley's famous grocery store for everything you need. Whole Foods is about the same distance, up Ashby St from BART.
  • Great little cozy place. All the amenities that I needed (great coffee!). And, Leslie's dog Lucky is a super friendly host!

    Robert2020-04-25T00:00:00Z
  • Leslie’s place was cozy and perfect for 2! Leslie made this a seamless process and she is really warm and welcoming. The place was really clean, she’s located close to the freeway and bart transportation. I would come back again!

    Ingrid2020-04-19T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay! Leslie is awesome, very thoughtful and around if you need anything. I enjoyed my stay very much. Perfect location for work.

    Candis2020-03-23T00:00:00Z
  • we had a great two nights in the studio. It offers enough space and also the bathroom and the kitchenette offer enough space. The bed can be heated which is very pleasant. There is also a parking lot on the street. We can say with a clear conscience that this is a great place to stay

    Marvin2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing space to land, regroup and take off in the city. Clean and easy check in, great communication and a studio that you can make yourself home in. Will definitely be back!

    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 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.
    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.
  • Very nice place to stay with a very hospitable host. Quiet little neighborhood in an accessible location.

    Lorenso2020-04-16T00:00:00Z
  • What a wonderfully charming and comfortable cottage! Photos do not do this place justice. Hands down, the sweetest spot to stay in the Bay Area. Polly is a fabulous host and we can't wait to return! xx

    Jeanna2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Pretty little space with a fragrant garden right outside.

    Johnson2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • I loved this garden cabin! The bed was so comfy I slept like a baby. Polly and Bob were very kind. The Claw foot bathtub was perfect for my solo retreat.

    Talia2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • This was a clean, cute, and cozy place to stay. I slept great both nights. The location was great, too!

    Linda2020-05-03T00:00:00Z
  • Get your ping pong on! This is the best place to stay if you have a furry friend. So warm and comfortable. Peaceful and homey. Be prepared to feel right at home. The bathroom is unreal. The bathtub especially! I recommend this place to anyone who loves Big Dogs!

    Elicia2020-04-19T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed at Emilie’s lovely house for a weekend getaway with my boyfriend. Emilie was a wonderful host, she responded very quickly and accommodated every request we had. We brought a dog with us and he just loved the place - it’s very spacious and looks better than in the pictures. Emilie was also extremely helpful with recommendations in the area! Would definitely stay again

    Evgenia Jane2020-03-29T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing! Couldn't have asked for a better spot & hosts.

    Emily2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • My friend and I spent a lovely week at Emilie's for our spring break. We were so grateful for her entire family's hospitality (especially her dogs!). They made us feel comfortable and at home. Emilie's tips and suggestions were incredibly helpful, and she responded promptly to every question we had. The space itself is beautiful- beautiful nature light, quiet, and very spacious. If we're ever back in the East Bay, we'd definitely choose to stay with Emilie again!

    You'll notice some of the original details of this comfortable space, and will hopefully share our excitement about some of the new updates to the unit - such as a television, king-sized bed, and fireplace heater. With its own entrance, nice-sized bathroom, and spacious closet, this cozy studio is ready for business or leisure! Plus, it's close to just about everything you need - UC Berkeley, Downtown Berkeley and BART, the Greek Theater, award-winning restaurants, and views at the Rose Garden.
    With a private entrance and bathroom, this studio is en suite to our house, on the ground level. This is important to note, because it is separate to and below our living space and next to our garage. We are respectful, but please know that you'll hear footsteps or voices periodically. Although there is no kitchen, it has a nice kitchenette equipped with a mini-refrigerator (for potential leftovers), microwave oven (for heating said leftovers), and Keurig machine (for coffee lovers/needers). If you're concerned about working, the table is adjustable height, and serves as your workstation or table. The bathroom is large, with a nice-size shower. The closet is gigantic, where you'll find a tower fan, iron and ironing board, luggage rack, and extra blankets. Whether you're here on business or pleasure, this studio has what you need!
    We are in the hills of Berkeley, which is important to note. But those hills afford us amazing views of the Bay and the City. Our neighborhood is quiet; just far enough away from the buzz of the streets below to make them walkable, but high enough to enjoy the views. Plus, the neighborhood is filled with homes that take great care of their gardens. All of this makes it very beautiful, throughout the year. Honestly, we're in a great location - it's about a mile to the Downtown Berkeley and the BART station, a little more than a half-mile from the Greek Theater and the UC Berkeley campus, directly up the hill from the infamous Chez Panisse, original Peet's Coffee, and Cheese Board Pizza, and a half-mile down the hill from the Berkeley Rose Garden for an incredible view of the Bay. We're incredibly lucky to have such a beautiful home, and look forward to sharing it with you!
  • Justin's place is just perfect. Great location, sparkling clean, and beautiful design. He is also super responsive and helpful. Would totally recommend to stay here.

    Jesus2020-03-24T00:00:00Z

    Jesse2020-03-11T00:00:00Z

    Rita2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Justin is very quick with the communications and went out of his way to help us with our stay. We really appreciated it. The place is in a nicely isolated part of the house. Being on the bottom floor, the place is pretty humid, but that is very typical of houses in Berkeley (I lived there for some time). The room has a number of nixe touches and features, including a height-adjustable desk of a good size (if one needs to do some work), good quality toilet paper, Everyone brand soap made with plant extract, a spacious closet (fits easily clothes for 2 people for 2 weeks), an electric heater in the shape of fireplace, a very soft and comfortable king size bed, a mini fridge, a microwave, a coffee maker and good quality coffee. Nice house from the outside. Solid wood hardfloor, good size shower. The location is very good too: it's inside a quiet residential neighborhood just 5' walk from Shattuck (and all its cafes, markets, stores, restaurants, etc.). Definitely a great place where to stay in Berkeley

    Paolo2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Nice home in the Berkely hills

    Ishan2020-03-03T00:00:00Z

It was located in a very beautiful neighborhood and I felt very comfortable and safe by myself. Justin was very responsive to all my emails and questions. Overall this was a VERY positive experience and highly recommend this place to anyone:)

    Cosy, clean, sunny guest room in small downstairs flat with garden access. Spacious, sunny bedroom, large bed, fresh sheets. Simple organic breakfasts and fresh coffee. Historic house with rustic charm and lots of pets.
    Stay comfortably in your simple, well-appointed bedroom in my quiet flat in a peaceful neighborhood. I live here, and you will stay as my guest. Very central, convenient location for Oakland/Berkeley/Emeryville; close to freeways I-580, I-880, I-80/Bay Bridge, Hwy 24, and Hwy 13, and BART (Ashby and MacArthur stations.) Local advice freely given. Loaner bicycle available.
    The house is located on a Bicycle Boulevard in a quiet, tucked away, family-oriented neighborhood that is undergoing something of a renaissance. Houses are quickly being bought at high price and remodeled by bourgeois newcomers, but something of the old neighborhood remains-- cracked sidewalks, chain-link fencing, and litter are part of the local texture. Take a stroll down the block to see babies and families walking along with workers, families, loiterers, commuters, homeless people, kids at play, teens on bikes, and varied and interesting houses and gardens, all enjoying the sunshine (or fog.) Historic Oakland residential neighborhood with beautiful architecture. The Tuesday Berkeley Farmers' Market is a 3-minute walk down the street. Sweet Adeline is a superior neighborhood bakery. Guests love this delightful hidden neighborhood. NB This is a very typical Oakland neighborhood. Guests may or may not feel comfortable walking alone late at night. Also, the neighborhood is mainly residential and somewhat "off the beaten track" and may be better suited to car/cab/bicycle transportation than walking, although many guests have been very happy to get around by foot.
  • Great location and value with a comfortable bed and room; John was great at communicating beforehand, very flexible and welcoming and all in all was a great place to stay!

    Bruno2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay. Not far from BART, nice cafes and shops in the area. The room itself was really nice, well-kept and great natural lighting as well. I was personally in town more for study and research rather than travel, but the desk was nice. It was a quiet and peaceful place to be. The animals were really cute too.

    Charles2020-03-09T00:00:00Z

    Natasha2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Stay here! The house and neighborhood is super cute. John was incredibly hospitable and made it feel like home!

    Samantha2020-02-16T00:00:00Z

    Yun2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
