The space

Welcome! This is a private guest suite on the lower level of a Craftsman-style house in the sunny, popular Rockridge neighborhood.

Cozy bedroom with queen-size bed, four goose-down pillows and high-quality linen. Small bathroom with shower (no tub). Large living room/kitchen combination.

Private entrance. Peaceful, fully landscaped back yard with patio table, umbrella and chairs. Great for eating outdoors.

Wi-Fi. Washer/dryer.
Your own parking space in my driveway.

The kitchen is equipped with refrigerator, microwave, gas stove, toaster, tea kettle and coffee maker. You'll have complimentary orange juice, bagels, cream cheese and butter, oatmeal, a pitcher of cold filtered water. Tea and coffee, half-and-half.

Rockridge is on the Oakland/Berkeley border. My house is two blocks from College Ave., which has dozens of restaurants and cafes, two bookstores, hair salons, gift shops, Trader Joe's market, a yoga studio and great transportation two blocks away.

You're a 5-minute walk from Market Hall, a great food emporium with a bakery, coffee house, gourmet deli, wine shop, produce market, florist, fish market and meat market.

You're two blocks from a BART train that takes you to San Francisco in 20 minutes or downtown Oakland in 8 minutes; and a bus that takes you directly to the U.C. Berkeley campus in 10 minutes. Easy freeway access to San Francisco, Marin County, Napa Valley, Silicon Valley.

I provide lists of suggested restaurants and sights, guide books on San Francisco Bay Area for you to borrow. I've lived in the Bay Area 40 years and I know the area very well.

Full disclosure:
-- The ceilings in the guest suite are low: 6 and a half feet. Plenty of light in bedroom and living room/kitchen.
-- There may be a small amount of noise coming from upstairs where I live.
-- Living room sofa is 4.5 feet long, not big enough for sleeping.
-- No television.
-- I have an 8-year-old Labrador Retriever who will be in the back yard occasionally. She's the friendliest and prettiest dog on earth.

This was our 3rd or 4th visit to Edward's place and it did not disappoint. The basement apartment is equipped with everything you can think of (except a TV, which we did not miss). We especially enjoy the breakfast treats and the close proximity to our son's house. It is in a ni…

We loved our stay at Edward's cozy little place. The neighborhood is fantastic and super walkable, and I loved little touches like complimentary bagels and an abundance of guides for out-of-towners. The bed was one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in. Edward also work…
