About This Listing
We are walking distance from the UC Berkeley campus and I am happy to recommend nearby restaurants, parks, music venues, bars, movie theaters and views. Internet access available.
This is the purple room, featuring a double bed, skylight and desk. Bath and shower located across the hall/library.
We have put mats on the floor upon request to accommodate as many as an extra two people in this room.
The one main rule is that we try to keep guests out of the kitchen as this is an imposition on our parents. If there is a situation where it is absolutely necessary for you to use the kitchen we might be able to make an exception, but we try to avoid this.
This is a lovely, spacious and light-filled room in a great neighborhood very close to UC Berkeley, which is what mattered to me. Liza was a nice, hands-off host, very responsive and flexible. I absolutely loved the library and its many books and family photos. Nice large bathroom across the library, with older fixtures that work well. A bonus I had not anticipated was the small fridge in the library for the use of guests. Three small things I would have changed: more heat in the room, which was a bit chilly; a key so I can lock my room, since there are other guests staying in other rooms nearby; a small blind to cover the skylight, which is great at night, but in the morning that sunlight shines right on your face (see photo). Bring a mask to cover your eyes, if you can sleep with one (I can't). There were also a few dust bunnies in the corners, which didn't bother me, but might bother someone else. All in all, I strongly recommend the room, the neighborhood, and Liza, and I would definitely stay there again.
Wonderful sunny place with a touch of history;) Liza responsive and very helpful.
Lovely and cozy house! Check in and check out were simple. The room was clean, and the neighborhood was safe and quiet. Liza was very helpful and accommodating, I'd stay again the next time I'm in town!
Really wonderful space & convenient location. Will definitely return for a longer stay!

About the Host, Liza
My brother and I have been hosting on and off for almost 2 years. The vast majority of guests are satisfied with the service. We have met a lot of wonderful, interesting people through hosting, and we are happy to answer questions and give advice about the area.
Occasionally we slip up and miss a spot cleaning when we are in a hurry or we make some logistical mistake. We try to learn from these mistakes and avoid repeating them.
There is no kitchen access. Your room and the adjacent library and bathroom are the spaces for guests. If you are planning on taking a nap promptly upon arrival please let us know in advance so we can make sure your room is ready right when you arrive. Otherwise, while you will be able to check in at any time, your room may not be ready until the evening. This is because we both have jobs and we've decided to give guests more leeway on the check out end rather than rush them out before we change the rooms over.
