This private cottage is situated in a beautiful rear garden behind a historic craftsman house, off one of the main bike boulevards that runs between Berkeley and Oakland. San Francisco is 20 minutes away on BART, and UC Berkeley is 10 minutes away on a bike or by bus (or about a 20-minute walk through great neighborhoods).
The cottage has a queen bed, large closet, full bathroom, well-equipped kitchen, sitting area, and lots of daylight through big front windows, French doors, and two skylights. It opens onto a brick patio with outdoor furniture, a grill, vegetable garden, fruit trees, and a big hammock. We'll provide wifi, cooking supplies, locally-roasted coffee, a small library, and fresh garden produce. (Everything was just redone: walls freshly repainted, carpets cleaned, brand new bed and linens.)
We are both writers and work from home in the front house. We absolutely love the location of our place and we walk almost everywhere. It's a short walk to Rockridge BART and the Temescal district, and an even shorter walk to Whole Foods, Safeway, coffee shops, an excellent bakery, butcher shop, artisan ice cream, small movie theater and loads more. You can also easily get to a number of open space parks and beautiful hiking trails.
This is a great place for anyone coming in for meetings or guest teaching, or visiting friends/family in the surrounding neighborhoods.
Please email us with any questions!
We are both editor/authors working for national media companies and writing books. We have lived in the Bay Area for many years and are fervent partisans for East Bay life. We have two small kids, so we spend lots of time at home and walking around the neighborhood.
