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.

The space
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!

Guest access
The studio is on large, forested property. Your stay will be in the guest cottage located near the entrance to the garden. Guests can access the lower yard and the deck attached to the studio. Your stay here in berkeley will be most enjoyable without a car - we recommend skipping the rental if flying in. For those that need a vehicle, street parking is not difficult.
There is a house on the top of the property that is undergoing renovation and there may be some trades people during the day. The stairs up to the house are off limits due to construction . If walking to the studio please note the immediate few streets are very steep and will get your heart pumping!

Other things to note
Cleaning. Updated May 2020. We are doing a longer, more thorough cleaning routine and have added many new steps. Including disinfecting all touched surfaces, switches, handles etc. We are also diffusing specific essential oils shown to reduce bacteria and virus in studies. All the cleaning supplies are accessible to guests during their stay.

If you are bringing a car, please let us know so we can make space for you! We have a small two car driveway located at a steep 90 degrees to a small street, and if its a bit too daunting there is always plenty of street parking available nearby. Just message us once you’ve booked if you are bringing a car.

We are located in the middle of a large, forested residential area where many animals and critters also live. Its part of life in Berkley to have ants inside the house during certain parts of the year. They are harmless but if they become too much, please message us and we can clean them up.
