Garden Oasis just blocks to UC Berkeley

A lovely landmarked property in the convenient and desirable Gourmet Ghetto neighborhood of North Berkeley. Just steps to local shops, restaurants, farmer's market and public transportation. The property is 1/2 mile from UC Berkeley, perfect for visitors to the University. The original architectural details, the lush garden, and the location make this an ideal home away from home. Our property contains our landmarked Victorian home and three stand-alone cottages.

We have two suitcase-ready, fully furnished stand-alone 1 bedroom cottages available. The cottages are part of the historical landmark and were built in the 1920s. There is a bedroom with a queen sized bed and a sweet living room. The bathroom is very small but has a tub. There is a long narrow kitchen that is stocked with all kitchen basics (dishes, flatware, pots, etc). It has a breakfast bar with room for two - there is another table in the living room that can also be used for dining. Both cottages have their own small outdoor seating area in addition to the shared outdoor space on the property (cottage 1 has a small outdoor patio area with iron chairs and a table and cottage 2 has wooden Adirondack chairs and a table out front).

Keep in mind that these are historic 1920s cottages. We have clean, comfortable, modern furnishings, but there is some rustic-ness to the place (like older cabinets and floors) that we think add to its charm! The cottages are private, but there are other people (including children) that use the shared space on the property, including the garden near the cottages.

The rate includes all utilities (gas, electric, water, garbage, wireless internet) and full furnishings (all furniture, sheets, towels, pots, pans, etc.) The units do not have TV. All units have access to (coin-operated) laundry and shared outdoor space on the property.

A car is not necessary as we are in walking distance to (shopping, UC Berkeley, farmer's market, BART). Parking is street parking - folks who do want a car usually park ~3 blocks away, where there are no permits required. Parking immediately in front of the house requires a city permit - please let us know if you want more information about city parking permits, as some longer term guests do get city parking permits.

Cottage 1 is available beginning early October 2020 and Cottage 2 is available beginning late October 2020.

We ourselves are affiliated with UC Berkeley and love sharing our property with sabbatical guests.
