About this listing

Beautiful landmarked property in north Berkeley - secluded 1 bedroom units in a garden setting - just blocks to UC Berkeley and the farmer's market.

The space

A lovely landmarked property in the convenient and desirable Gourmet Ghetto neighborhood of North Berkeley. Just steps to local shops, restaurants, farmer's market and public transportation. The property is 1/2 mile from UC Berkeley, perfect for visitors to the University. The original architectural details, the lush garden, and the location make this an ideal home away from home.

Our property contains our landmarked Victorian home and three stand-alone cottages. We rent several fully-furnished and suitcase-ready units: two beautiful historical 1920's stand-alone garden cottages and one inlaw studio in the historical 1885 Victorian home.

This listing is for a stand-alone 1 bedroom COTTAGE. This cottage is the middle of three cottages on the property, set back from the street behind a garden gate. The cottage has a bedroom with a queen sized bed, a sweet living room, a bathroom, and a kitchen stocked with all kitchen basics (dishes, flatware, pots, etc). Keep in mind that this is a historic 1920s cottage. We have clean, comfortable, modern furnishings, but there is some rustic-ness to the place (like older cabinets and floors) that we think add to its charm!

This cottages has its own outdoor patio area (with iron chairs and a table) in addition to the shared outdoor space on the property. The cottage is private and we are always very respectful of our guests, but there are other people (including children) that use the shared space on the property, including the garden near the cottage.

The rate includes all utilities (gas, electric, water, garbage, wireless internet) and full furnishings (all furniture, sheets, towels, pots, pans, etc.) The units do not have TV. All units have access to (coin-operated) laundry and shared outdoor space on the property.

A car is not necessary as we are in walking distance to (shopping, UC Berkeley, farmer's market, BART). Parking is street parking - folks who do want a car usually park ~3 blocks away, where there are no permits required. Parking immediately in front of the house requires a city permit - please let us know if you want more information about city parking permits.

We like our visitors to make themselves at home. We love this property and enjoy sharing it with guests! A few things to note: Garbage, recycling, gas, electricity, water, wireless internet, and access to coin-operated laundry are provided, but no television is provided. There is street parking, but no garage or driveway space. Parking immediately in front of the house for more than 2 hours on weekdays requires a city parking permit, which can be obtained (for an extra cost) depending on the length of the stay and where the car is registered. Most visitors park 3 blocks away where no permits are required. No pets or smoking allowed. Our property is a mini-community. You have private access to your unit, but there are other people (including children) that use the shared space on the property. We look forward to hosting your stay!

Erica's cottage is very comfortable. Good bed, good kitchen utensils, and comfortable and attractive furniture. Great location, just a couple of blocks from the Cheeseboard, etc. Highly recommended.

We had a lovely time in this quiet cozy and well equipped cottage. Very convenient. We felt very welcomed and our grand daughter had a great time trying out the scooters in the patio.

My daughter and I absolutely loved our stay at the cottage. Bree was a fantastic host, making sure that we were comfortable and was very responsive. The little touches, like the chocolate she left for us upon arrival, were lovely. The cottage was a perfect respite from our college touring and city adventures as it was serene and quiet and the bed was very comfortable. I was able to cook a large meal in the small yet well stocked kitchen for my daughter and 2 sons, who were staying at Cal, so everyone was happy. The location was fabulous as we were able to walk to get coffee, paruse a charming bookstore, and shop for our meals. The gourmet ghetto neighborhood is bustling with lots of great eating options and boutiques. I would happily return to the cottage for our next visit to Cal. It has all the comforts of home and Bree and her family were lovely hosts. Thanks for a fabulous stay.

We had a wonderful stay in Berkeley at this charming space. The location was perfect. We loved being able to walk pretty much everywhere we wanted to go! The cottage had everything we needed and was the perfect place for us to relax for a few days. Bree was incredibly friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay there again if we are back in the area.
