The Space

The apartment is the bottom half of a duplex house. It's a 3-bedroom apartment with kitchen, bathroom, free laundry, a nice back yard garden, and wifi internet.

One bedroom is occupied by me (45-year-old male), the 2nd bedroom is occupied half of the time by my 10-year-old daughter, and we share the apartment with our two adorable cats.

You would rent the 3rd bedroom. It is a large room (12"x12"). It's fully furnished, with a queen-size bed and a good-sized closet.

Guest Access

You have exclusive access to your bedroom, and shared access to the kitchen, bathroom, laundry room and living room.

SPECIAL DEAL FOR THE FOURTH WEEK OF NOVEMBER: I will be taking a trip the fourth week of November (Thanksgiving) and need someone to cat-sit. If you can cat-sit for 3 to 5 days, you will get a discount rate of just $45 per night and will have the place to yourself. The cats are very friendly and easy to take care of. I use an automated feeder and automated litter box, so it's very easy work. I will be gone from Wed Nov 26th to Sun Nov 30th. You would need to arrive by Tues Nov 25th and stay through at least Fri Nov 28th. (You could arrive a little earlier and stay a little later if you want.)

The Neighborhood

The apartment is on a nice, quiet block in central Berkeley. Very easy walking distance to stores, bars and restaurants.

Getting around

My apartment is a 15-minute walk from Ashby BART and a 15-minute walk from Downtown Berkeley BART. (BART is the area's metro train system that connects San Francisco, Oakland and Berkeley. The train ride from Ashby Bart to downtown SF takes about 20 minutes.)

If you will be arriving on BART, and if it works with my schedule, I am often able to pick up up from BART for your check-in and am often able to drop you off at BART when you check out.

There is plenty of easy street parking.
If you have a car, street parking on my block is very easy and has very few restrictions.

It's an easy 20-minute walk to the UC Berkeley campus.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Very nice place to stay.

    July 2014
  • I met Michael and his girlfriend at check-in, as well as the cats. They were very pleasant and accommodating. I really wasn't going in with any expectations since I had a busy agenda and just needed somewhere to sleep and shower. The neighborhood was safe and convenient to my destinations.

  • Michael was very helpful, waiting for us in the midnight. The neighborhood is nice, quiet, near to the campus. We like it as it is described.

  • Our stay at Michael's place was our first airbnb experience and is was just awesome! We could go everywhere we had to just by walking. Michael was very helpful and the place felt like home. Our unplanned late check-in was also no problem. Michael has two great little cats and as all other reviews tell, they are really cute! We would definitely recommend his place!

    June 2014
  • Michael's place great! The place was a little further from Downtown Berkeley than I expected, but he, his kittens, girlfriend, and daughter were very welcoming and hospitable. They even let us stay beyond our check-out time! Feel free to contact if you have any questions about being a short-term guest here.

  • Staying at Michael's place was a pleasure. Michael is a very friendly person. The room was comfortable and clean and the cats are very friendly. The location is great. The neighborhood is very quiet and safe and the house is within walking distance of a BART station and very close to a main street. I would definitely stay here again.
