À propos de ce logement
A detached studio behind a single family home in Berkeley located in the North Berkeley Hills, 15 min walking distance to North Berkeley's Gourmet Ghetto. While public transportation is nearby, you will be better off with a car. Easy street parking.
With your reservation request, please let us know the purpose of your trip!
The private studio cottage is located in the backyard, behind a larger single family home. This cottage is completely separate from the main house and is accessed through a rear gate into a shared backyard.
The cottage features a twin-sized mattress, a desk with an ergonomic office chair, a reading chair, a clothes rack with plenty of hangers to hang your clothes, a mini refrigerator, and ample shelf space. The small bathroom has plenty of towels, a hair dryer, and a stand up shower with soap, shampoo, and conditioner. There is a full length mirror on the bathroom door.
This space is bright and comfortable. You will literally be sleeping under the stars as the skylight above the bed does not have a curtain. There is internet connection via ethernet cable and wi fi.
We are a family of four (mom, dad, and two school-aged boys) -and our recently rescued dog Trixie- living in the main house and sharing the yard with you. Our dog is very friendly and is not left alone in the backyard.

Échanges avec les voyageurs
We understand some guests like privacy and some like more interaction. We leave it up to you on whether you would like to meet us, so please let us know if you would like to do so.
We are located in a quiet residential neighborhood in the beautiful North Berkeley Hills. We are 1.5 miles from the North edge of U.C. Berkeley's Campus, Downtown Berkeley and BART (Bay Area's Rapid Transit system).
Other close-by amenities include popular hiking in Tilden Park, the beautiful Rose Garden, Live Oak Park, or additional shopping and restaurants on Solano Ave.
There is a 5-7 minute walk to the bus (AC Transit Line 67) that will take you to the main BART (metro) line to San Francisco, or to the Transbay bus (Line H) that will take you directly to the City during commute hours. Street parking is easy on San Benito Avenue.
This studio gets lots of natural light. The skylight does not have a curtain. If you need a dark place for a restful sleep, this place is not the perfect fit for you, as you will know when the sun is up. Also, on sunny afternoons (which used to be rare in the Bay Area, but not so much lately) it gets hot in the studio due to the direct sunlight coming in through the skylight. The heat is remedied quickly by opening both doors to let the breeze in and we also provide a fan for your comfort.
No smoking and no drugs. The studio is for one person only. If you have more in your party, please inquire before reserving. We thank our guests for being respectful about keeping the noise down between 9 pm and 8 am.
We kindly ask our guests to be mindful of their water and power consumption.

Born and raised in Turkey, I moved to the States in 1996, and lived here ever since. I feel very fortunate to live in Berkeley and raising my two boys here. Love cooking, eating, and reading.
