About Mollie Mindel
Hello! I am a fellow world traveler, always happy to come home to my own personal retreat. My family and I love to travel almost as much as we enjoy exploring the greater San Francisco Bay Area. We are Bay Area natives who have lived in our home here in Berkeley since 2005. I love to garden and we enjoy the many "outdoor rooms" we have created throughout our extensive property. We hope you will too!
Mollie Mindel purchased this Guest House in 2005
Why Mollie Mindel chose South Berkeley
This property has all of the charm you could be looking for. The house itself was built in 1918 (100 years old!) and is a classic Berkeley Brown Shingle home, one of the few remaining in Berkeley. Living on the outskirt of downtown allows us to access all of the hustle and bustle of an urban college town while still allowing for the quiet and calm of a residential area. We loved that the property had a guest suite allowing us to host friends and family.
What makes this Guest House unique
You will love the outdoor space. California is all about the outdoor living! We have a deck with a hammock, a fire pit seating area circled by beautiful succulents, and a convenient patio with a gas grill outside your private entrance. This doubles your living space. Feel like spending your time indoors? The interior is lovely. Enjoy our gallery of local art placed throughout the guest suite.

A great little get away in Berkeley
The house was a wonderful little hideaway in Berkeley. It is close to the college and stores. It has everything you would want and it is super clean and cute. Mollie was wonderful to deal with and we will be staying there again soon.
Apartment was just as described, lovely and quiet garden setting, comfortable room, well equipped kitchen, bathroom smallish but very nice fine for one or two people. Only thing it needs is a good reading light in living room and a towel bar in bath. Unfortunately power was cut off on frst night, but it was PG&E's fault. Owner quickly gave a free night. Would rent again without question.
Comfy but not fussy, an easy stay. Appreciated the black out bedroom curtains. Only wish there had been an automatic coffee maker.
Beautiful small apartment, set in a wonderful garden, which extends the living space of the apartment - great for morning coffee. The apartment is bright and sunny, and is fully equipped. Quiet neighborhood, lovely and responsive hosts. Wish I could have stayed forever. Highly recommended.
Lovely garden apartment!
Lovely quiet spot! Beautiful garden and well-appointed rooms. Mollie was very accommodating to our changing itinerary. I highly recommend this apartment!
Thank you Laura! It was a pleasure having you. Glad I could accommodate the change in plans.
Great Location, Quiet and Very Clean
This location was perfect for my wife and I. We were within walking distance of all the things downtown Berkeley has to offer, or could easily drive, take ride sharing or Bart to any place in the Bay Area.
The apartment was very clean and had all the amenities one would need and was stocked with all the basic food condiments so we didn’t have to buy those. Having a washer/dryer was a huge bonus. The weather didn’t cooperate for us to enjoy the outside garden area but it would be very nice to have at certain times of the year. Thank you to our hosts for a great place to stay.
Thank you Gar. You and your wife were a delight to have as guests. We hope to host you again in the future.
Location is everything! We are walking distance to UC Berkeley and have immediate access to all Downtown Berkeley amenities including: numerous restaurants, cafes, shops, yoga studios, gyms, bookstores, theaters, music venues, nightlife, farmers markets, etc. In the opposite direction we are an easy walk to Berkeley Bowl, the famous Bay Area grocery store.
