I lived here for 2 months before I left the Bay Area to travel. The cottage is very nice inside and out and Elsa is a wonderful host. There is a nice large kitchen, small cozy bedroom, huge TV and DVD player, a garden, and lots of sunlight. The cottage is just a short walking or biking distance to downtown Berkeley and there is an elementary school across the street and a park nearby with baseball fields and a basketball court. The Ashby BART station is just down the block, which is very convenient for getting in and out of San Francisco and I was commuting to work downtown each day so this was a huge plus! Elsa will provide you with everything you need - towels, iron, sheets, pillows, pots, pans, you name it! There are places to store your bike, plenty of closet space, a washer/dryer, and wifi too!

The cottage is small, but perfect for one person studying or working (and maybe 2 if you don't mind the small space). I am 27 year old female by the way and have lived in the Bay Area for 5 years. I would stay here again!

I have stayed in the cottage for a month and a half during March and April 2012. I was very happy with my stay. I was initially slightly apprehensive about transferring the deposit but after some reassuring correspondence with Elsa and after taking some references went ahead. Everything worked out very well, the place is small but very convenient and has everything I needed for my stay. It is exactly as advertised. Elsa was very welcoming and it was a pleasure to deal with her. I will have no hesitation staying at this place again. Excellent Alexander 5/5/2012 9:21:00 AM
