Об этом жилье
Welcome to The Kensington Cottage. This listing is for the lower level in-law unit of our 1930's era home that was built by the architect Thomas Merchant. This unit is a full size apt with 1 bedroom, full bath, cozy eat-in kitchen & sitting area.
Come enjoy the convenient stroll-abilty of Kensington in Berkeley CA. Just a short walk to Solano Ave. and you have over 100 4/5 star restaurants to choose from. The Farmers market, botanical shops, cheese shops and clothing boutiques make for a full day. If you want to head into SF, we are just a few minutes from the El Cerrito Plaza Bart Station. Parking in our neighborhood is easy, plentiful and free all the time.
The El Cerrito Bart is 6 mins away by car and a beautiful stroll if you enjoy walking.
In addition to the queen size master bed, we have a new Pack N Play available if you are traveling with a little one. A new Scandinavian Designs sleeper sofa (full size bed - sleeps 2) has been added. As well as a new queen air mattress for those with bigger kids or an extra guest(s). The listing works best for groups of 4 or less however, we allow up to 6 adults and 1 child but only if you like sleeping like sardines with your loved ones or friends ;) Folks have happily done it - it just depends on your travel style.
The apt. has a private entry along a stone pathway through the outside garden. Check in is at 3pm. Check out at 10am.
Kensington is home to many families, Berkeley professors, writers and artists. No shortage of folks to talk to! We have two children, 12 and 9 (girl and boy) who have busy days but our family quiets at around 9:30 each night. We are happy to quiet earlier in the evening if our guests require it (for infants etc).
The space is 550 square feet and consists of a kitchen stocked with dishes, silverware, pots, and pans. A full-sized refrigerator, new 4 burner stove-top & oven, microwave, coffee maker, and convection/toaster. Just off the kitchen, there is a table that seats 2 (and 3 extra folding chairs). There is a closet to hang your clothes, an empty dresser, extra sheets and pillows for the air-mattress and plenty of fresh towels and kitchen linens. Lastly, there's a stand up shower as well as a hair dryer so you can leave yours at home.
This space is bright and comfortable. We also provide Free Cable TV and super fast WiFi.
We can provide as much or as little guest interaction as you prefer. We are busy professionals but are always available by phone or text. We live in the top 2 levels of the home (In-law is in the bottom level) and work in the Bay Area - so nearby whenever needed. We can at times offer a later check out depending on the next reservation so please - just ask!
