About

Furniture, household items, utilities, Netflix, fast internet -- even lemons -- are all included. This professionally cleaned cottage is suitable for one person or a couple, and would be convenient for a UCB student or faculty member looking for off-campus housing. Availability in 2021/2022: summer session, fall, and/or spring semesters. The dates can be flexible. Located only 3 miles from the UC Berkeley campus on Kains Avenue in Albany (adjacent to North Berkeley), the cottage has two rooms with vaulted ceilings and skylights: a bedroom with a queen bed, desk, TV, dressers and large closet + a kitchen/living room combination with a gas cooktop and a microwave/convection oven. The bathroom has a large shower. The cottage, with a private entrance, is in the quiet landscaped backyard garden of the main house, and occasionally Winnie, the quiet and cute chihuahua, sunbathes in the yard. Albany, adjacent to North Berkeley, is a very desirable and friendly neighborhood. Our location in the Garfield section of Albany has the very high walk score of 90 (Walker's Paradise), which means that most errands can be done on foot. The bike score is 97 (Biker’s Paradise). We are in easy walking/biking distance of famous Solano Avenue, and we are also in walking distance of the El Cerrito Plaza BART station, Peet's Coffee, El Cerrito Plaza's farmer's market, Trader Joe’s and other shopping and services. As a recent renter said, “This has been a sweet retreat of a place for me. I enjoy so much about it, like those red leaves the afternoon sun sets aglow right outside the bedroom window, being able to look out and see greenery, the sun on your patio, how thoughtfully you’ve set up and furnished the cottage.”
