About listing

Our charming one bedroom one bath studio space is completely private and located on the bottom floor of our Berkeley home. We've spared no expense to make this the ideal retreat for business travelers and U.C. Berkeley visitors. The Space: This beautifully decorated room is comfortable and very quiet. Features include a California King bed, a cozy reading chair, a desk for those needing to work during their stay, and a flatscreen TV with cable and high speed Internet access. The bedroom also features a mini-fridge, microwave, coffee pot and a tea kettle. While staying with us, you'll have your own private full-bath located next to your room. Guest Access: Private separate entrance to bottom floor of home. Plenty of free on street parking. Interaction with Guests: We're busy professionals running a business from our home, so you won't see much of us during your stay. We'll be happy to greet you upon your arrival, show you around the space and answer any questions you may have while you're here. The Neighborhood: Quiet tree-lined established residential neighborhood on the border of North Berkeley and Albany. Solano Avenue is located one block away. You'll find a grocery store, several banks, a post office, coffee shops, bars and dining options ranging from high-end to grab and go. Getting Around: Walking distance to restaurants and shops on Solano Ave. (1 block away). One mile from North Berkeley BART (access to the whole Bay Area). Two miles from Downtown Berkeley and the U.C. Berkley campus. Easy highway access to Downtown Oakland and San Francisco. Other Things to Note: While you're living space is separate from the rest of the house, please know that we do have a very sweet cat and dog upstairs (they never go downstairs), but you'll most likely won't encounter them during your stay.

    Apartment was delightful and immaculately clean. Perfect for two people. Will stay there again on our next trip to Berkeley. 27 September 2016 - 19:27:00

    Laura's studio was the perfect place for a week long stay. Not only was Laura very accommodating, but her studio was extremely clean and well furnished. The studio has wifi, TV, coffee, a large bed and even robes and slippers. It's also a short walk to Solano for all types of different foods. If you are visiting Berkeley or the Bay Area, I'd highly recommend staying here. 26 April 2017 - 19:03:00

    We loved it.. Wish we had known about this type of thing earlier. We do a lot of roadies to different parts of the state and out of state. This is better than any hotel. All the comforts of home. Laura was extremely nice. We are so glad we tried it. The studio is so beautiful and extremely comfortable. We will definitely be back.. 16 May 2017 - 23:21:00

    Our stay was wonderful! Spacious, beautifully decorated room with cuisanart coffee maker, fridge, and microwave. Nice bathroom with toiletries! Separate entrance and very private. Laura was very nice and helpful with advice for visiting. Highly recommend! 16 June 2017 - 10:42:00

    My husband & I recently stayed at Laura's Studio and we found that it met all of our needs and then some. The Studio was very clean, the bed was wonderfully comfortable and Laura provided a lot of extra touches that we greatly appreciated. Laura always replied to questions very quickly and gave us lots of information that made it easy to locate her Studio and to really enjoy our stay. Hopefully we'll be able to stay here again the next time we visit this area. 24 June 2017 - 00:05:00

    Laura was wonderful. The place was large and comfortable. I will stay here every time I come to San Francisco / Berkeley when possible. One block from Solano Avenue with grocery store, cool shops, great restaurants, and coffee houses! 27 July 2017 - 06:08:00

    Laura welcomed us into a lovely homey room and bathroom with fresh flowers and an ecologically green ambiance.After welcoming us and letting us settle in, she even drove us to the closest BART station since we were going to SF airport to welcome our daughter. It's a lovely neighborhood that felt safe and comfortable. Would recommend this place for those who would welcome a little quiet and a good night's sleep. You do have microwave, coffeemaker and small 'frig in the room. For what we were looking for this was a five star place. 12 August 2017 - 16:43:00

    Besides the obviously lovely space and accommodations, we were truly impressed with the careful attention to detail at Laura's property. Sure the bed was really comfortable, the TV had every station you could ask for (with excellent picture quality), there were more drawers and closet space than anyone could fill and everything was spotless. But the excellent linen and towels, the super soft bathrobes, the quality shampoo and bath soap, were distinctly better than we generally experience in a vacation rental. Even the coffee in the airtight container was very good. We always enjoy coming to the East Bay to visit with our children and their grandkids. Staying with Laura just made this trip the best we've had in a long time. 10 August 2017 - 02:53:00

    We truly enjoyed this stay and Laura was a very pleasant hostess. It was easy to find and the room was quite cozy. It was truly a home away from home experience. I would definitely stay here again. Parking was easier than I thought to find and my daughter loved the proximity of the nearby Starbucks and friendly people. 18 August 2017 - 02:01:00
  13. Leonard K.
    For us, this was the best. Great location, excellent neighborhood and ample parking. Main living area was roomy, clean and well appointed. We met our hostess upon arriving and she was most gracious and informative. Bathroom was clean, shower was excellent and wifi worked perfectly. Cable TV included Netflix; what more could I ask for. 04 September 2017 - 01:04:00

    The space was perfect for our needs and the host made everything easy. 25 September 2017 - 14:52:00
  15. Catherine L.
    Perfect for getting around the Bay Area! Plus super easy walk to Solano Avenue shopping and eating. Owners are nice and attentive to your needs. Quiet neighborhood- everything you need. I'd choose this again! 24 September 2017 - 23:51:00

    Stayed here while visiting our Cal student. Location is close to shops and easy drive from Cal campus area. Parking on street was easy and we always found a spot in front. Laura was accommodating. Fresh flowers in room. Quiet room even on busy Marin Ave. Clean! Will stay here again. 01 October 2017 - 19:37:00

    Place was clean, cool and bed was awesome . Having bathroom across the hall, where the laundry room, and enter to garage. Made me a little uncomfortable. 09 October 2017 - 19:55:00
  18. MyVRBO B.
    This is my first experience with renting a VRBO property. It was a good one. My first thought was that it was much better than staying in a motel room. The owners had made the room very comfortable with nice coffee and herbal teas. I felt very comfortable. I definitely recommend. 11 October 2015 - 16:57:32

    Everything about this studio was fresh, clean, tasteful, functional and comfortable. The location is outstanding: a quiet residence, street parking and an easy walk to stores/restaurants and Peet's coffee ( a must for me when in town). The consideration of the host is expressed in all the beautiful details of the place from the stone stairs leading to the private entrance to ample closet space to original art on the walls, and so on. The host was respectful of privacy except to be helpful with my questions. I highly recommend. 21 July 2016 - 16:00:55

    This was one of the best experiences that I've had since using HomeAway and other services. This one bedroom unit was exactly as advertised, and the owners couldn't be nicer and more considerate. We enjoyed the conveniences that were in our unit, and the directions for TV, WiFi, coffee, space heater, etc... were clear and easy. While there isn't a full kitchen, there was a microwave and refrigerator that was stocked with cold water and coffee. It made our stay nicer, and it was one of those considerate touches that made this stay special. We will definitely look to re-book this unit when we're back in the area. 23 October 2017 - 00:44:00
