This light and airy backyard cottage is the perfect get-away in North Berkeley, a short walk from tons of shops, theaters and restaurants and 2 blocks from a BART (subway) station and bus stops. Easy to get around and fill your day with delights!

The space
The cottage features vaulted ceilings, a skylight (with light-blocking shade) and multiple windows that create an open, light-filled space. A wall mounted heater warms the cottage. The bathroom's shower has a light and fan. The kitchenette offers a microwave, coffee-maker and refrigerator — no stove, oven, or kitchen sink. (There's a sink in the bathroom.)
Located in our fairly secluded backyard, the cottage is part of our home life. We ask that renters keep a relatively low profile in terms of noise. However, you are welcome to spend time in the private patio area that faces the cottage.

Where you’ll be

Berkeley, California, United States

Although Berkeley is a bustling city, our neighborhood is relatively quiet and extremely walkable. An 8-minute walk takes you to the North Berkeley BART (subway) station, and a 15-minute stroll brings you to the Gourmet Ghetto, a strip of incredible restaurants on Shattuck Ave (including the world-renowned Chez Panisse). The UC Berkeley campus and all the shops and restaurants of downtown are about a 20-minute walk away.

I'm a father of two, spouse of one, and researcher of science learners in museums. I like playing the guitar while singing, getting lost in woodworking, and fixing up my house, though I'm not all that good at any of them.
