Sunny cottage in garden setting, walking distance to campus and everything!

One bedroom. The cottage is fully furnished and has a fully-equipped kitchen, includes bed linens and towels. Perfect for 2 to 3 month stays in Berkeley. Monthly rent is $2100 plus a security deposit (includes utilities). The cottage is equipped with everything one needs. It is on the small size and is best suited for one person, though it can work for two for small periods of time.

The entrance is through a gate on a well lit path on the side of our house to the back cottage. We have a 4-year-old friendly labrador retriever who will be happy to greet you at the gate. The cottage is fully furnished, including a King sized bed (with bed linens). There is a fully equipped kitchen downstairs with a small eat-in table. Kitchen is equipped with gas stove, full-size refrigerator, microwave oven, coffee maker, dishes, cutlery... everything you need. Up a narrow set of stairs, there is a small room with a desk and a bathroom off of it. Also upstairs is a large room with a king-sized bed, 2 small closets, dresser, another desk and leather sitting chair. We have a wi-fi connection that guests are free to use. There is a small private balcony for your use.

The cottage is located in the Elmwood, one to two blocks from dozens of restaurants, cafes, a bank, copy store, book store, laundromat, post office etc. Star Market is 2.5 blocks in the other direction for all grocery needs. If you prefer, Safeway is 1/2 mile away. We are one mile from campus, an easy walk or quick bus ride down College Avenue. We are also one mile from Rockridge BART in the other direction down College Ave. We are on a quiet street and the cottage is in our backyard. We have a great location for managing without a car, close to everything, shops, campus, transportation but our street is quiet and family-oriented.

The stairs inside the cottage are not suited to young kids or persons with any disabilities.
No Smoking.
