Our cottage is perfect for a cat lover- a friendly guy that will be at home while we are away. Lots of light, terrific neighborhood, and access to so many shops and restaurants in Downtown Berkeley. 9 min. walk to BART station!
Do you need a place to stay for a summer getaway or are you a visiting student or professor? Our adorable Berkeley cottage is the spot for you. You'll have the place all to yourself!
We are located in the heart of West Berkeley, a short block away from the bus line, fantastic Indian sari shops, a number of excellent Indian restaurants, and just minutes from Downtown Berkeley. We are a 12 minute walk to North Berkeley BART station. We are a 10 minute drive to the UC Berkeley Campus. By train, we are about 30 minutes away from San Francisco, and driving, we are about 15 minutes away with no traffic.
Our cottage is very quaint and cute- with a kitchen (stove, microwave, mixer/blender/Vitamix), laundry washer/dryer, bedroom, bathroom with tub, living room with TV/Blu-Ray/Cable and wireless internet. You'll have your own key and will need to orient yourself to the space on your own. There is street parking available as well.
We also have a cat who is a friendly guy. Please be amenable to animals. We have a cat sitter who comes in to take care of litter and checks in on him (can be stopped during your visit). However, we'd ask that you put out food/water for him while we're gone.
This is really an ideal spot for a person on their own or a quiet couple who don't mind a loving, low-key indoor/outdoor cat.
Guests will have access to our home. Please note, there is a house in front of ours- respect the privacy of residents there.
Interaction with Guests
We will not be present, however we like to touch bases with folks in advance- over (website hidden), if you need, and go over details of the place. We will be available via phone and email.
West Berkeley is the real Berkeley- lots of great shops, artists, restaurants, and folks who still say hello when you walk down the street! We're by no means suburban-- still can hear the street noise-- but we're a tucked away bungalow that's a terrific hideaway!
We are steps away from a main bus line which runs very frequently. We are a 9 minute walk to a BART station. Street parking is available.
We are looking for responsible, clean, quiet house guests who will enjoy the comfort and coziness of our Berkeley cottage while we are away. No smoking in house. No shoes in house. Cat friendly folks only!
Stay here and you could give this host their first review!
