All are welcome at our beautiful peaceful garden studio. It is the back of our historic home, the oldest standing structure in Berkeley! We are close to BART with easy access to SF and UC Berkeley and two blocks from Berkeley’s famous Fourth Street shopping area with unique boutiques, great restaurants, and coffee houses. Entry is private and the garden is yours to enjoy. The mini fridge, microwave, fresh ground Peet's, tea, and Laurie's famous granola will help you feel right at home.
