This is the best neighborhood in Berkeley. Quiet, peaceful and beautiful. The "Gourmet Ghetto", the Cheese Board where the best pizzas are made daily with live music every day, Chez Panisse the well-known restaurant, all is within a short walking distance. A block away we have the Live Oak Park, where at certain times of the year are festivals and fairs, music and food.
Wifi, Electricity, cleaning all is included in the price.
Breakfast is served in the mornings.
I booked the room first for 10 days and decided to stay 10 weeks! The view from the room is amazing, everything is very clean and the room has everything you need and is quite spacious. But the best thing about the place are Patrice and her charming family. The location is very near to the Gourmet Ghetto and it is easy to get to the UC Berkeley Campus by bike. I warmly recommend the place.
A most friendly family in a great location. This was my first experience with airBnB, and I am honestly happy I tried.
I can only recommend this place!
Patrice was a very gracious host. Breakfasts were nice with good food and conversation. The room was comfortable and light with a very nice view of the bay. The garden around the house was beautiful and we were welcome to spend time there. The neighborhood was pleasant and this was a very convenient location for my visit to Berkeley. I felt welcome and well taken care of.
Patrice was the perfect hostess. Everything was as described. The room was light, charming, clean and welcoming. There is a stunning view of the bay from the room. The neighborhood is quiet and beautiful. Patrice serves a delicious breakfast every morning in her dining room. I couldn't get enough of her fabulous coffee! It is a very convenient location if you need to be near the university or the downtown area. I would definitely stay here again.
Patrice and her husband were warm and engaging. I felt welcome to hang around and chat, or to be alone. Their home is lovely and clean, the garden beautiful, and I felt safe to walk in the neighborhood. I appreciated the beautiful and healthy breakfasts that Patrice made for me each morning; I didn't feel pressure to accept it or to hang around but it was casually inviting and tasty, so I surprised myself by taking time for breakfast each morning! The bed was comfortable and the view of the bay was an added bonus. Patrice had helpful suggestions for places to experience in Berkeley, and even helped me to find transportation to the airport. I plan to stay here each time I come to Berkeley for my classes. Thank you!
Patrice is an amazing host who provides a room with a perfect view in the San Francisco skyline and the Golden Gate bridge. I loved the healthy breakfast with fresh fruits and real bread.
We stayed at Patrice’s house for two and a half week, and it was a very pleasant stay. We enjoyed the warm and welcoming atmosphere from Patrice and her family. The rooms were light and airy, more than what’s shown in the pictures. The view was also great over to San Francisco and the Golden gate bridge. The garden was really beautiful and we could rest here and read after work, while admiring the birds, vegetables and the flowers. The neighborhood felt safe and was quiet and beautiful. There were shops and resturants close by and we were able to walk to the university where we worked.
We would gladly recommend Patrice’s home to friends and family if they ever get go travel to Berkeley.

About the Host, Patrice
Originally I am from Switzerland and have visited and lived in many different places in the world. Now I mostly share my time between Berkeley, California and Nayarit, Mexico.
I love to open my space to travelers, make them comfortable and show them what it is I find so special about the two places that I chose to live in.
I like the good things in life: an interesting conversation with friends, a good laugh and a glass of wine, or tequila to go with it. All kinds of Art, expressions of creativity, music, especially Latin & African rhythms, but also Opera.
But mostly I enjoy the quiet, natural surroundings, the gardens and the views both of my places offer. It brings me peace and happiness.
