The Space

Rustic, charming, Stable Cottage is what was once a carriage house in the early 1900s. Located in the heart of Berkeley, just around the corner from the historic Julia Morgan Theater on College Ave. which is the gateway to U.C. Berkeley's lively and inviting campus. It's less than a 10 minute walking distance to many fabulous restaurants, movie theaters, great shopping, grocery stores, library and hiking trails. Public transportation is one block away.

The Stable Cottage has a fully equipped kitchen, and comfortable living/dining room. The cozy master bedroom has a sloping ceiling (triangular in shape). Surrounded by tall trees, some have described it to feel like they're sleeping in a tree house! There is wifi and a washer and dryer. While relaxing on the private deck it's easy to imagine you are in the country.

My family and I, along with our quiet, friendly dog live in the front house. We are happy to answer any questions you may have and to also honor your privacy. The Stable Cottage is a perfect little respite after a day out exploring the Bay Area!

Interaction with Guests

We greet our guests, show them the cottage and answer any questions. After that we leave our guests to themselves (unless of course they need something!)

The Neighborhood

Beautiful gardens and homes, safe, quiet, lots of families, students, a variety of churches, running track and excellent ice cream parlor. Yet within minutes you can be in a more lively part of town.

Your Host



Berkeley, California, United States · Member since July 2011

Hello! My name is Maryclare and I really enjoy opening my cottage to AIRBNB guests. I like meeting new people and creating safe, simple, and beautiful spaces for guests to relax in during their travels. My husband loves to garden so you will often see him working away, keeping our property beautiful. I am a yoga Instuctor at U.C Berkeley and also teach from a small studio in my house. If you are here on a day I am teaching in my home studio (and it is of interest to you) you can always ask if there is space in the class. Our household is quiet, yet friendly. We welcome you!
