Michelle's cottage was lovely and perfectly appointed for a cozy solo stay. The BART is conveniently located a short walk away for traveling to and fro around the area. I also appreciated having access the laundry facilities. I'd highly recommend and would most certainly stay here again!

We had a wonderful stay at Michelle's cottage. Very private and located near the BART for easy access to the city. We would definitely stay again!

Michelle's place was great. Located close to Ashby BART station on a quiet cul-de-sac. The garden is lovely.

Michelle's place is a superb self-contained studio set in a lovely rear garden. Very peaceful and quiet, and less than a 5 min walk to the Ashby BART. Michelle was extremely accommodating when we arrived a few hours earlier than expected. She also helped us with luggage storage as we had a late flight on checkout day. There is a great bar with some eclectic live music only 5 mins walk from Michelle's - it's called the Starry Plough. Highly recommend staying here.

Well-loved place, quiet, at the end of a cul de sac. Nicely laid out cottage, but the bed (a converted sofa) was uncomfortable. Parking was impossible. Had no face-to-face contact with the owner, but the instructions were clear and access was easy.

Michelle User ProfileMichelle is a superhost.

My name is Michelle and I have lived in Berkeley for 15 years. My husband and I bought our South Berkeley bungalow to raise our three children. We love the large garden and proximity to everything that the Bay Area has to offer. We've moved close by, but hope to be back in the bungalow when the kids are off to college.
