The Space

Relax, work or visit the beautiful east bay or UC Berkeley campus.

Nice and bright attic room with partial city view in 2-story, cozy and quiet home, occupied by owner and long-haired cat. Shared bath, full kitchen, laundry available. Lovely back yard and porch, easy street parking, wireless high-speed internet and breakfast. Room is suitable for one person, no pets. Discounted long-term rates without breakfast are offered for weekly and monthly stays.

This charming, traditional 1910 wood siding home is situated in an urban setting in a neighborhood comprised of a combination of live-work warehouses, light industrial and traditional residential buildings. We are nearby to everything by foot, bike, vehicle or public transport. 15-minute drive to downtown S.F., 10-minute walk to BART, 1 mile to Bay Bridge, 2 miles to UC Berkeley campus and downtown Berkeley, 1 mile to shopping at Emeryville centers.

The former Key Line (passenger trains to SF) travelled along adjacent streets before freeways were expanded, and the gardens of older homes here were often used to grow produce for sale at farmer's markets in the early 1900's. Originally settled by large numbers of immigrants (many of Italian and Portuguese descent), the area was originally named "Klinkerville" after an early developer. It is now generally referred to as the Golden Gate or Lorin District. The area is up-and-coming with development merging from nearby Emeryville, with walkable dining, cafes, and gallery spaces.

  • 1st airbnb experience and quite the success. You meet Kendall and after the first 5 minutes you cant believe you haven't known her for a long time.Same goes with her home.You walk in and it's like your returning to a place you loved visiting before. Cozy,comfortable,and comforting;how's that for ambience.And Lana the cat...well if I don't mention her she'll turn her bushy tail up at me when I visit again.After the initial and obligatory kitty cat dirty looks Lana is a love and adds more to the wonderful of Kendalls's Farmhouse airbnb experience.

  • I had a great experience in Berkeley. I was there for a month, visiting UC Berkeley. Kendall is very friendly, and her cat too. Her house is very nice and cosy. It was very convenient to cook there. It is easy to go in the center of Berkeley or in the university by bike or bus, and in San Fransisco with the bart. To conclude, I highly recommend to stay at Kendall's,especially for a long stay.

  • I stayed with Kendall for two months during a visit to UC Berkeley. She was a great host - so welcoming and helpful. It was great to discuss places to visit with her. She has obviously hosted a lot and is very thoughtful with regards to what her guests need for a comfortable stay.
    The bus stop to get to the university is a very short walk away, making it very convenient.
    Recommended, especially for longer stays.

  • I had a super relaxing time at Kandell's Farmhouse. Kandell is a wonderful person, very helpful and she spared no effort to make me feel comfotable. She lend me her bicycle, that was gorgeous because it is really nice to ride a bike in Oakland. The house is very warm, light and cozy with high energy.
    I super highly recommend to stay there!

  • I stayed at Farmhouse Room for a week. The rate I paid did not include breakfast. The room was very comfortable, and Kendall was very friendly and accommodating. I didn't have a car with me - mostly I was transported by my daughter in her car - but the house is extremely well located for getting around without a car. There's a restaurant right across the street, but I don't recommend it (at least not now, it's new and may get better). However there are at least two very good cafes within a ten-minute walk, and the BART is also quite close. If I were traveling to Oakland by myself again I would definitely stay with Kendall.

  • Kendall is an amazing host and understands the concept of making you feel at home. She provided me with ample and timely notes to help me hit the ground sleeping.
    She's a great person to have conversation with and I will definitely come back to her home, despite the Bay Bridge commute.

  • Kendall was a gracious host. She offered to pick me up from the Ashby BART upon arrival. The room is cozy with a desk if I needed to do any work. Her place is just about 1 mile from the BART station and also about 1 mile from downtown Emeryville. There is a farmers market just across the street every weekend. I worked in SOMA and conveniently walked to the BART every morning. I had a great experience.

  • Kendall was a gracious host. She made me feel right at home. She was helpful in giving directions, and making sure I was comfortable. Her home was clean and I enjoyed sitting on her front porch in the morning. First class bay area experience. Kendall has a very kind and has a sweet demenor and I know she will make you feel right at home.

  • Kendall was a great host and was even kind enough to pick me up from the BART station. This being my first Airbnb experience, she was very kind, easy-going, and friendly which made me immediately comfortable. She even offered to set-up breakfast. The room was very comfy and included a dresser, closet with hangers, a small desk, and a lot of maps, books, and sight seeing guides to utilize. Although I didn't spend much time at the Farmhouse I felt immediately at home. It's a short walk (10-15 minutes) to the Ashby BART station so it's pretty accessible to the city. Lana (the cat) is very sociable and she greets you in the morning at the bedroom door. On Saturday, there is also a small farmer's market right outside the gate! Overall it was a great experience and I recommend Kendall's home if you're in the area.

About
I'm a late-40's professional who works at UC Berkeley. I'm quiet and friendly as a host and housemate, and enjoy cooking, gardening and entertaining (read: you might get some good meals and meet fun folks along with your stay.) :) I ride a motorcycle, and enjoy touring the country with friends. Lana the house cat is very friendly, and loves men in particular, so be ready for some white fur.
