Surrounded by trees on 1/2 acre, our cottage in Kensington/ Berkeley Hills is a perfect country house in the city. Our relaxing light-filled retreat is decorated with our original textile designs, Kiran's fine art photography and has a hot tub under the stars.
“This place was just where we wanted to stay. There is greenery all around the deck and outside the windows making the place feel so peaceful and like a getaway. We woke up to seeing butterflies, colorful birds and often deer near the trees and creek outside the window. The bed was so soft and the hot tub was perfect for cool nights/mornings when most was the mist is still settled in the hills. The hosts also provided us with recommendations on where to eat and the markets close by, they even left granola by our door. I loved the stay here but there we’re only a few little things that would have made the experience better; I liked that they had Netflix but I wish there was a chrome cast to the tv but that’s not to much of a big deal. I also wish the owners were more clear about the area not being our own, they stay on the same property but still separate buildings so we got the privacy we wanted. Overall would definitely recommend!!”
Friendly, hospitable hosts and private comfortable room with queen bed in a quiet residential neighborhood near UC Berkeley. Easy walk to bus and BART, shops, pubs, and restaurants. The Garden Hideaway is a freestanding building in our back yard. The view from you room is of our vegetable garden (and perhaps of a hummingbird or two). There is unlimited free wifi. You will have access to one off-street parking space for a compact car.
“I had a nice stay at Mishaa's for a night. She kindly allowed me to drop off my luggage before check-in time, and showed me the place. (Thanks to that, I was able to visit friends in SF for the afternoon.) The room is comfortable, well furnished, and located close to BART. It's also walking distance from Whole Foods and Berkeley Bowl---popular grocery stores. I wold stay again!”
This cute cozy cottage is the perfect spot for a couple or solo traveler. Nestled in a fruit-tree filled yard, the space is bright and welcoming, with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Situated in one of the East Bay's best neighborhoods and just a few blocks from BART and bus lines, this is the perfect spot from which to seamlessly explore most corners of the San Francisco Bay Area. With a wide variety of shops, services, and restaurants nearby, this spot is sure to please!
“The location is very close to the BART station and there is a large shopping center right in front of the airbnb. The room was very clean and comfortable. The gentle sunshine and the chirping of birds in the morning allowed me to wake up pleasantly every day. When I opened the door, a lovely, friendly cat in the garden was sleeping peacefully. Check-in was also easy and smooth. Karen was a very kind host. Despite the house rules they were willing to respond to irregular requests for check-in. Because of my mistake, the room making team accidentally disposed of my things in the refrigerator because of my early check-in. When I returned that evening I was very upset and mailed Karen a bit rudely and angrily. Even at that time, Karen responded immediately and was really kind and sincere. She took care of the situation to my complete satisfaction with professionalism and empathy. Karen, I'm sorry to make you feel uncomfortable at that time after your kindness and consideration. One more time. Karen, thank you very much.”
