sunny, quiet apt near everything

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Hearst Ave, Berkeley, CA 94702, United States

The Space

My very sunny 1 bedroom apartment is waiting for you. I have 270 degrees of windows with southern facing exposure, affording direct sunlight from sun up to sun down. The place is fully furnished (including queen size bed, gas stove, bathtub, and extra single bed in in living room), with hardwood floors and a huge backyard. Every room, including the kitchen and living room has a door allowing for additional privacy if more than one person were to stay here. They kitchen is so big I have a love seat in it.

Wireless internet is available as well as a land line with free local and national calling. Parking is readily available and for an extra fee a spot directly in-front of the building can be arranged.

the atmosphere is very peaceful and meditative with altars in every room, lost of plants and art/decorations from my travels around the world.

Guest Access

I am one of two apartments on the second floor of a quiet fourplex, tucked away on a small alley just 1 block from San Pablo Ave and University Ave in Berkeley. There is a large backyard that you are welcome to use.

The whole place is yours so there is no expectation of interactions. Of course, if I am in a place with cell phone or e-mail range I am available to answer any questions you have. Otherwise the place is yours and I do my best to honor your privacy.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The place was in a great location walking distance to the University and had everything I needed to make the most of my time there. Koda was very responsive and quite helpful.

    Thanks for the great stay!

  • Miakoda's place is conveniently located near San Pablo and university where a diverse collection of restaurants and ethnic markets is all within a short walking distance. The street is quiet during weekdays, and livens up during the weekend. The apartment is artistic and comfortable with all the conveniences of home living. I would definitely come back.

    Response from Miakoda:

    thanks Eitan. do let me know when/if you head back this way.

  • Lovely apt with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Quiet, peaceful and easy to walk to every necessity. We didn't rent a car as BART was so close to hop to the city. Clean and ecologically appointed - fit our style perfectly. Comfy bed on floor was a dream for sleeping. Friendly super who fixed a lock which broke, in record efficient time - and pleasant about it too. Safe, quiet neighborhood - near everything. Will recommend to friends and family as it was just that perfect. Thank you Miakoda for a lovely stay in Berkeley!

  • My family and I (husband and two boys, ages 3 and 1) stayed here for one week in late June 2012.

    Miakoda was a wonderful host and was very thoughtful, going out of her way to make sure we had what we needed for our stay. The home was lovely and inviting, as well as being in a terrific location for us: walking distance to playgrounds, shops, and downtown Berkeley.

  • MiaKoda abode is a hip, artistic spiritual apartment with meditation alters in most rooms. There are wise saying with smiling Buddas. It made the smile to be in Berkeley again. The place is very clean and organized. She left us very detailed instructions about the care of her plants and other apartment norms.

  • This place has personality. It's thoughtfully arranged and was a very pleasant and comfy home-away-from-home for my two week visit. I enjoyed interesting food choices nearby and easy walk to BART. Miakoda was informative and attentive from offsite.

  • Miakoda has a very lovely place that she has clearly put a lot of time and intention into. The place is very clean, sunny and is near most everything in Berkeley. As a host I did not meet her but she was very considerate and thoughtful. Highly Recommend!
