The space
The private studio cottage is located 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 King-Sized Tempurpedic Cloud Supreme Mattress. There is also a small futon that folds out into a full-sized cot. The cot is a bit short, so it's best for kids or if you don't mind your feet hanging off. Extra pillows, sheets, and blankets are stored within the cottage.

The space is just under 400 square feet and consists of a kitchen stocked with dishes, silverware, pots, and pans. A full-sized refrigerator, stove top, oven, microwave, coffee maker, and toaster oven. Just off the kitchen, there is a table that seats two. There are two closets with a dresser, room to hang your clothes, extra sheets for the futon, an iron and ironing board, and two bath robes. Lastly, there is a small bathroom with plenty of towels, a hair dryer, and a stand up shower with soap, shampoo, and conditioner.

This space is bright and comfortable. In addition, there is DSL Wi-Fi and a 27-inch flat screen TV with YouTube TV.

Please note that in the winter, if/when it rains, we sometimes get ants in the cottage. We can set up ant traps and do our best to minimize the problem, so please let us know if and where you do see ants.

The backyard is shared with a small dog and two kids.

We, Jenn and Paul Rubin, are a young married couple. We love our children, Sydney and Kit, our King Charles Cavalier Spaniel, Harold, and living in Berkeley!

We enjoy hiking and playing sports, going out to eat, and spending time with friends and family. Airbnb is one of our favorite ways to visit new places. It feels good to have a home base to wonder around from in a new city. Jenn is creative and enjoys making things with her hands and Paul loves watching sports, mostly basketball. We both love eating ethnic foods, coffee shops, watching TV shows/movies, and spending time together.

During your stay

We do utilize the backyard, so we may or may not naturally run into each other, but we are always available to answer any questions you have. Other than that, we leave it up to you on whether you would like to have a planned meeting with us!
