The Space

Best location in Berkeley! Private bedroom available in our house in the Elmwood district of Berkeley. Full bed with featherbed and quality linens, sitting area, desk, and wireless internet. The rental includes the use of a rooftop deck. The comfortable living room has a piano and a gas fireplace for chilly evenings. The shared bathroom includes a tub and shower. The rent includes daily continental breakfast.

You can manage easily here without a car. Our house is one block from College Avenue with a movie theater, post office, and many shops and restaurants. The busy #51 bus stops one block away, which can take you to the university or to the Rockridge BART. It is a 15 minute walk to the Bancroft entrance of UC.

We have lived in Berkeley for many years, and love sharing ideas about things to do in the bay area. We have one very friendly dog and one curious cat. Quiet non smokers only. Bed linens and towels provided. Off-street parking available for an additional $5/day.

  • The location was great. Emily and her family are hospitable, helpful and an interesting bunch. Look forward to a clean room, private patio, and maybe even some fresh-made jam if you are lucky ;)

  • I spent a few pleasant days at Emily and Eric´s house. Even i couldn´t stayed much time at the house because of the demanding schedule of the trip, when i got back I really felt at home. The property´s location is excellent, very well connected, and the house is nice and cozy. I highly recommend staying at Emily and Eric´s, they are friendly and respectful people, also make you feel like family. By the way, happy birthday to Eric, I could not stay for your party.

  • Emily's place is in a wonderful part of Berkeley, filled with trees, nice gardens and stores right by. Emily was great about communicating and very friendly-- even offered me coffee in the morning!

  • Had a very good stay for three nights. The location is great - near the Claremont hotel, Berkeley campus, and amenities. Emily and family are very friendly. The other reviews capture the experience fairly accurately.

  • I had a great stay with Emily and Eric. They were both very welcoming and accommodating. The room itself was great too- clean and the small attached balcony is next to some fruit trees! House is located in a quiet neighborhood that's walking distance from great restaurants/shops/uc Berkeley campus. Would definitely recommend staying here.

  • We were hesitant as this was our first experience with air bnb . However, we felt very at ease with Emily and were comfortable in her home. Enjoyed coffee and muffins she had prepared for us in the am.. The location was great, nice area. We slept very well. I would recommend Emily's home and would contact her again as the need would arise.

  • We (me & my wife) stayed with Emily and Eric for 9 days and had a great time. They were very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable and we really enjoyed a private deck attached. Nice location! The neighborhood was also great. Emily was a great host.
    We would like to stay at Emily’s house another time!

I live in Berkeley, CA, and work as a teacher in Oakland. I have three kids who are growing up and moving out, giving me and my husband a little more free time. When I travel I am more interested in talking to people and seeing what life is like rather than just seeing sights. Here in Berkeley I love to share ideas about places to go and things to do.
