About this listing
Welcome home ! This is a private room with private bathroom that is located close to BART, UC, Whole Foods , Berkeley Bowl , and The Elmwood neighborhood. All the conveniences of urban living with country like calm.
This home was actually built in the 1800's. While the outside makes it look like a classic Berkeley Brown shingle, It has been completely renovated .
As far as location, we are close to everything . It's walking distance to Whole Foods , and Berkeley Bowl. A simple 10 minute walk to Ashby BART will take you to San Francisco. There are also many delicious restaurants also in easy walking distance.
I am offering a bright,clean and private room with a simple closet and queen bed. You will have your own bathroom which is just down the hall. You are welcome to share the large open living/dining room as well as the kitchen. I spend a lot of time cooking/entertaining . If it works out, maybe we'd even get to share a meal.
I've had so many rich experiences as a guest around the world. It's a pleasure and joy to be able to open my home in this way. Welcome!
You're welcome to use the kitchen, and you have you're own private bathroom. Feel free to hang out in the garden as well.
