This is a rather unique 2-floor attic apartment in a majestic old house built in 1907 - easy walking distance to the Berkeley campus, many restaurants, coffee houses and close to public transport.

The space
The Space:
You enter the apartment from the second floor (the downstairs). Downstairs there is a large remodeled eat-in kitchen with a dishwasher, microwave, storage pantry, 1-1/2 bathrooms, and a hallway that doubles as a sitting area. Upstairs there is a bedroom and a very spacious sleeping/living area under the eaves of the house. The sleeping area in the attic has an art deco king-size bed set, wood floors, an assortment of chairs, interesting décor, and skylights from which you can see the campanile tower on the Berkeley campus.

There is a shared outdoor deck, and there are coin-op washers & dryers in a laundry room a short distance away on the ground floor. You’ll have a dedicated off-street parking space.

• Our rates are all-inclusive. We pay the Berkeley business license tax, but it is not charged to you.

Where you’ll be

Berkeley, California, United States

The apartment is in the Elmwood residential district (south campus), very conveniently located 1 block from Telegraph Avenue, 2 blocks from College Avenue, and about 12 minutes walk from the UC Berkeley campus. You could certainly manage without a car. The location has a walk score of 94 which classifies it as a “Walker’s Paradise”!
It’s within 5-10 minutes’ walk from numerous reasonably-priced ethnic and specialty restaurants (Italian, Nepalese, Thai, Ethiopian, Burmese, French, Japanese, burgers, pizza, Swiss-style fondue, Chinese, Korean barbecue, a Subway), coffee houses, bookstores, vintage clothing stores, music stores, and student hangouts on Telegraph Avenue. A large CVS pharmacy is a block away, and Whole Foods is 4 minutes by car or a 12 minute walk (5 blocks).

Born in England, now living in California for many years. Two (!!) graduate degrees from UC Berkeley. I have been an Airbnb guest in the US and several other countries and have appreciated the experience of staying in a real home, a place with warmth and character, in an interesting walkable neighborhood. That’s what my co-host (my husband Jack) and I offer you, too, in Berkeley – a vibrant town with an internationally renowned university, distinctive architecture, innovative restaurants, serious coffee houses, bookstores, parks, museums, theater, a lively music scene – and conveniently close to San Francisco.
