Little Lemon Cottage is a 1 bd/1 ba 500 sq.ft. retreat-style guest cottage located in Albany right next to Berkeley. Set in a lush & cozy backyard near Solano Ave, which is dotted with small shops and cafes, it's an ideal location for those looking for a small town feeling within proximity of the city. This cottage was built with the needs of our guests in mind, including private laundry. The cottage is located steps from an array of Albany/Berkeley culinary culture, cafes, shops, and markets.
“It is SUCH A GEM. You can NOT beat the location...next to one of the best little downtown areas in Berkeley. But more than that...the cottage itself is lovely. Its modern, but cozy, but still feels big and spacious. Tons of lighting options, different outside seating options, lots of TV options (different stations/streaming/etc), comfiest bed and couch! Amazing kitchen to cook in. Like the list goes on and on. I would stay here again in a heart beat. The surrounding area is gorgeous to take walks in. And Sherry was a fabulous and welcoming host! I will stay there again given the chance for sure.”
Our newly built private cottage has its own bathroom, reading nook with comfy chair, new 27" Apple monitor for streaming videos, microwave, small fridge, and full-size bed. A REAL bed.
“This was our fist time staying at an Airbnb so we didn’t exactly know what to expect. Our stay was very pleasant. The cottage is located in the back yard of a charming house on a beautiful street. We arrived late after our hosts retired for the evening. We where able to get the key to the cottage from the lockbox hanging on the yard gate using the access code they provided. The way into the yard through the fence is a bit narrow due to a garden planter. This was no problem for us, but might be difficult to navigate with larger luggage. The cottage was spacious, charming and immaculately clean. We always found parking right in front of the house on all three days of our stay. We met our lovely host family as we left every morning at the same time they took there children to school. The house is walking distance from the charming shopping and restaurant village along Solano Ave. I would suggest eating at Zachary's Pizza, which is my favorite pizza parlor in the world. UC Berkeley is only a 15 minutes drive. I would definitely consider staying here again.”

“The creation of this Airbnb space has been beautifully done, with attention to safety considerations. . There are plenty of outlets, and a lovely bathroom, with amazing water pressure in the walk in shower. The bed is very comfortable, the kitchen is convenient and completely furnished. Very quiet, and the owner is available but unobtrusive.”
