Charlotte's cottage is definitely very charming! The beautiful pictures do not even do it justice. If you're looking for an adorable enclave near Berkeley, San Francisco or as a launching off point for wine country - look no further! The house itself is secluded in a quiet yard and feels very private. There's a full kitchen, living room, and large bedroom with a super comfy bed. The patio is a perfect place to enjoy a morning coffee or an afternoon glass of wine. Charlotte and her lovely family were nearby and super helpful only when needed! The BART is a short walk and even shorter bike ride away - and much of Berkeley is accessible via a nearby bike path. The family are avid cyclists and have lots of great recommendations for places to go explore. The neighborhood is very family friendly and there's an awesome park (Cerrito Vista) and swimming pool within walking distance. We'll definitely be booking this place again!

Quiet charming place. We found it very relaxing after a busy day. The hosts are very considerate and offered assistance as needed.

We had a wonderful stay at Charlotte's cottage! My wife and I stayed with our two young daughters and had more than enough room. Charlotte and her husband were both super friendly and made us feel at home. Parking in the neighborhood is easy, but it's also walking distance to BART, grocery stores, movie theater, and a brewery! They also included a folding bike which made getting around town quick without the car. Their home is close to Berkley/Oakland/SF, but it doesn't feel like you're in the middle of a city (which is nice). We're looking forward to staying here again the next time we're in town. Thanks for a lovely stay!

Very cute cottage. Beautiful location with perfect access to the Bart, highway, trails, fitness, restaurants. Plenty of free off street parking. The backyard is beautiful and smells wonderful. Great for a couple :)

Charlotte and her husband were great hosts. They were good at communicating and making sure my stay was as comfortable as possible. The cottage is private and spacious, with great natural light and a very Berkeley vibe. The neighborhood was safe and quiet, and only a quick walk (about 10 minutes) to grocery stores, restaurants/coffee shops, yoga/fitness studios, shopping, and BART. The cottage has some guide books in it and Charlotte was quick to suggest other things in the area as well. Overall a great place and good value for the area!

The garden cottage was PERFECT for our stay in the bay area. The house is completely private and very charming. It is situated at the back of a nice shady garden. The house itself was a one bedroom with a comfortable queen size bed, living room with a nice futon and couch, flat screen TV, and then a separate kitchen. My favorite part was the private deck off the kitchen - perfect for a glass of California wine and enjoying the sunset! The cottage is within walking distance of the BART, and San Francisco, Berkely, etc are all a short cheap ride away. There is a convenience store within a 2 minute walk, a coffee shop with awesome bagels a 4 min walk away, and then grocery stores, restaurants, movie theater all within easy walking distance. This is a perfect cottage for a romantic weekend getaway, a visit to the East Bay, or if you want to see San Francisco but want to stay somewhere a little sunnier and different. El Cerrito is a great town with awesome food and really nice neighborhoods to walk through. There are great views of San Francisco a few minutes hike from the house. The hosts were very receptive to any questions I had, and they happily provided a travel crib and a few toys for my son. I would definitely stay here again !
