About this listing
Tucked away from the hustle of North Berkeley’s vibrant intersection of the Bay and the Hills, this sunny, home-away-from-home retreat provides rest and relaxation amidst a cornucopia of attractions, restaurants, cafes, shops and music venues.
This top floor, one bedroom suite, overlooks cascading rose bushes to the South, treetops to the West, and an organic, lush garden to the East.
Upon entering the living room, you will see an inviting sectional, that opens to a comfy queen size bed. Get cozy with one of the many books lining this quiet space while sipping a strong, dark cup of coffee, french pressed with beans from our favorite roaster, or watch your favorite film while snuggling your beloved.
To your left, the bright, yellow kitchen has all the pots, pans, utensils, spices and oils you need to create a meal reflective of the area’s diverse cuisines.
The Bathroom sports a tub and shower heads and features Italian tile and toiletries for your convenience.
Out and about, you may walk to Monterey Market and pick up local, organic produce at rock-bottom prices; Fresh, free-range poultry from our local butcher, Magnani or Salmon, Bass or Halibut from Monterey Fish Market and finish it off with a sumptuous tarte from our bakery, Tout Sweet. Or you can forget all that, grab some California wine and head for a picnic on the bay at the Berkeley marina, as you dive into Gioia Pizzeria for a butternut squash, gorgonzola and gremolata with mozzarella pie and contemplate whether you’ll listen to music at Ashkenaz or catch a play at the Berkeley Rep that evening.
After frolicking in San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf, Alcatraz or Union Square and wandering across the UC Berkeley campus or Berkeley’s Rose garden and uptown galleries, you may want to ease into a hot tub at Albany Tubs and Sauna, or get a $20 “Foot” massage (which is actually a full-body massage) at Golden Island. Afterwards you’ll be ready to dream in the supportive, comfortable queen sized bed in the spacious bedroom.
Finally, if you’d like to rouse the envy of your friends by telling them about your adventures, the free internet will connect you.
