Spending a week in Kiwi Cottage was a vacation in itself. We chose it as a home base for our adventures in San Francisco, but always wished we had more time each day to spend there enjoying the serene, modern decor and lovely garden. Mornings at Kiwi got off to a relaxing start after procuring excellent coffee, bagels, or baked goods from the cafes and bakeries that are 5 minutes on foot from the doorstep or by making our own breakfast in the well stocked kitchen. Coffee in the garden featured the lush beauty of the plantings (so different from our East Coast plants!) and the antics of local hummingbirds zipping from lemon tree to lime tree. The cottage is well located in Berkeley, minutes by car from several different neighborhoods with excellent restaurants or shopping, as well as the North Berkeley BART station. The trek to the BART is walkable, but if you have kids in tow and expect to spend a day in the city walking around all day, we found it best to drive there. Keeping a car at Kiwi Cottage was easy thanks to plentiful on street parking, often right in front of the house. The owners are very friendly and have created an amazing experience for visitors of Kiwi Cottage. We so enjoyed their artistic talents on display indoors and out, as well as their great taste in furnishings. Thanks so much for making our trip to California so memorable!
