Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
This light and airy backyard cottage is the perfect get-away in North Berkeley, a short walk from tons of shops, theaters and restaurants and 2 blocks from a BART (subway) station and bus stops. Easy to get around and fill your day with delights!

The space
The cottage features vaulted ceilings, a skylight (with light-blocking shade) and multiple windows that create an open, light-filled space. A wall mounted heater easily provides enough heat for all spaces in the cottage. The bathroom's shower has a light and fan. The kitchenette offers a microwave, coffee-maker and refrigerator — no stove or oven.
Located in our fairly secluded backyard, the cottage is part of our home life. We ask that renters keep a relatively low profile in terms of noise. However, you are welcome to spend time in the back space that faces the cottage. We are re-landscaping the backyard in October 2021, so the images of the yard posted in this listing may change in November.

Where you’ll be

Berkeley, California, United States

Although Berkeley is a bustling city, our neighborhood is relatively quiet and extremely walkable. An 8-minute walk takes you to the North Berkeley BART (subway) station, and a 15-minute stroll brings you to the Gourmet Ghetto, a strip of incredible restaurants on Shattuck Ave (including the world-renowned Chez Panisse). The UC Berkeley campus and all the shops and restaurants of downtown are about a 20-minute walk away.

I'm a father of two, spouse of one, and researcher of science learners in museums. I like playing the guitar while singing, getting lost in woodworking, and fixing up my house, though I'm not all that good at any of them.
