This is an unusual urban listing for the eco-conscious or eco-curious. The offering is a private 10 x 12 foot cottage set in the back of a quarter acre urban farm in Berkeley. The room features a 100% botanical latex mattress and cotton sheets. There's a reading light, nice library of books, and a cabinet to put your clothing and belongings into. There is electricity and good lighting with a dimmer in the room, which has a peaked ceiling. It gets nice, warm, southern and western exposure. In the room I provide a selection of organic herbal and caffeinated teas with an electric kettle. There's also a coffee press and organic fresh grounds for coffee lovers. Cups and mugs and soft towels provided. There is a little refrigerator and I can put in organic milk for your first 2 mornings if requested. There is no kitchen or microwave. The room has a table with 2 stools.

Outside the room is a table with benches in a private succulent garden outside the WC building. The WC has a sink with hot water that waters a nearby plum tree as you use it. The toilet is a handmade composting toilet, with a conventional bamboo toilet seat, which I will empty as needed for longer stays. The toilet requires no water and uses wood shavings provided.

The hot shower is located under the shelter of the WC and has the best of showering in the garden but having shelter and privacy. Eco friendly soaps and shampoo/conditioner are provided as this drains into the garden adjacent.

The outdoor WC and shower are lit by ambient and solar lighting. There's an outlet in the bathroom as well.

This space is a wonderful, relatively quiet place to stay with your own private cottage where you can watch the birds and tomatoes ripen on the vines. It has a country feel in the very urban bay area. There are 3 or more cats on the property that are not allowed in the guest areas indoors.

Everything was perfect at A Farm in Berkeley! The cabin was clean and cozy and the location was perfect for going to Rare Barrel and Longbranch Saloon. It's about a 30 min walk or a $8 Lyft from the train station. Great value for the price. Sequoiah was communicative and made sure we had everything we needed. I would definitely recommend and hope to be back soon!

We chose Sequoiah's place for our anniversary getaway, and knew it would be perfect before even arriving. Sequioah was extremely communicative about directions, access info, and amenities in the days leading up to our trip. Upon arrival we were greeted with beautiful views, and were in awe of how luscious and fruitful (pun intended) the garden was! There was fresh organic milk, and water ready for us in the cottage. We didn't have to worry about bringing our own cups, coffee, tea, or towels. Sequoiah had it all! There was even a binder of nearby businesses and tips for our stay with a lovely note wishing us a happy anniversary! Our favorite part of our stay was the hot outdoor shower and super clean bathroom. All the comforts of a home with the added benefit of feeding the soil and plants on property! Waking up to garden views out of every window was a close second... Sequoiah is an amazing and thoughtful Host, and provided us with a more comfortable and relaxing stay than we could have ever imagined! Although we didn't get to meet in person, it's very clear that loads of love and care has been put into building this beautiful outdoor oasis tucked in a quiet Berkeley neighborhood. Thank you Sequoiah!
