This cottage is tucked back from the street, a few blocks from University, and near the vibrant Fourth street shops, the Bay bike trail, yoga & coffee shops. A friendly neighborhood that provides access to all of Berkeley and greater San Francisco.

Great location for a one week business trip. W. Berkeley is an up and coming area . I love the neighborhood and all it offers. It may not be for everyone, but Berkeley has its' own life. There is a train that passes through at night (maybe twice). Just bring some ear plugs and the problem is solved. Great host, great value, in a cool neighborhood

Spent a month in the cottage and had a great time there. Location was perfect for my needs (near the interstate, relatively close to a BART station). Also close to several great restaurants and other fun things to do. The cottage itself was very nice and clean. Nearly everything I needed was in the cottage. When I needed help with anything Lisa and Brian were very easy to reach and were very responsive to my requests. In general Lisa and Brian were great hosts, they were flexible, welcoming, and friendly. Would highly recommend this listing!

Great, clean indoor space. I spent two weeks at Lisa's place and I enjoyed my time there well. It's slightly larger than the photos suggest and the king size bed was the most comfortable bed I've ever slept on at an Airbnb place. Lisa was very accommodating with check in and check out times and the whole process was smooth and easy. Thanks Lisa!

Lisa's cottage was wonderful. The room is secluded enough to feel private but close enough to everything we needed. Just a few minute drive. The bed is super comfy and all of our needs were taken care of. They are quick to respond and very friendly. Definitely would stay again.

We stayed at Lisa 's house for 1 month to enjoy living in San Francisco Bay Area. Lisa welcomed us warmly, and gave us a variety of support for our lives and sightseeing. And, we could only meet their children once, but they were also smart, fun and gentle children. This house is like a lodge just behind the house of Lisa. Everything is there to live there. (There's no shampoo and kind of soap.) In Berkeley, you can make shopping and meals easier. If you look around the downtown area of 4th St on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Street View, you will be able to know that in advance. By using Uber and Lyft we were able to reach San Francisco downtown in about 30 minutes. (If you use Uber, it's cheaper than using a rental car, faster than a train or BART, conveniently than a taxi, you can go where you want.) Lisa supported our happy journey. Thank you so much!!!

We stayed here for over 4 months and it was fantastic! It was close to 4th st shopping area and the bus stop was only 3 blocks away. It was super convenient to park at night; street was really busy during the day. The studio cottage was really cute and we only had minor issues. When our shower head broke, Lisa was quick to come the next day to fix it and the heater didn't work so she provided a space heater right away. We brought our own silverware/dishes but the kitchen was stocked with all the utensils you would need. Highly recommended!

Hi, I'm Lisa Meckler. I've been living in the Bay Area for more than 25 years, most it in San Francisco's Mission district and now loving the East Bay. It's so nice to be around trees and to have room for the kids and dogs. Please relax, enjoy your stay and let me know if there's…
