The Space

Welcome to my home...

This lovely white sofa located in a living room with hardwood floors is located on the first floor adjacent to a lovely lemon tree in my spacious, peaceful 4-bedroom house in north Berkeley's exclusive and beautiful tree-lined "Gourmet Ghetto" neighborhood, within easy walking distance to downtown Berkeley, just 4 blocks to the University of California campus, and a quick 20-minute drive to downtown San Francisco. Best neighborhood in North Berkeley!

The room includes a sofa, piano, fireplace, a cable television and wireless internet for your working/studying needs. You also have access to the spacious table located in this living room, for eating or studying. This room is primarily a place to sleep and to have access to all the other benefits of staying in this great location, such as use of the deck located next to the lemon tree that provides a nice view of the bay, and that has a table with an umbrella, telescope, and barbeque pit.

The house is within easy walking distance of the famous Berkeley Rose Garden, a vast array of wonderful restaurants (including world-renowned Chez Panisse; the very popular Cheese Board pizzeria; Asian, European, Indian, Mexican, and other international cuisine; delicatessens; cafes and coffee shops), grocery shopping, the Berkeley Farmer's Market, banking, post office...and more!

Downtown Berkeley is an easy 10-minute walk, and just several minutes by car or bicycle. Public transportation is convenient and abundant, with Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) stations about 1 mile away for both North Berkeley and Downtown Berkeley BART stations, and an AC Transit bus line just 1 block away. There are ZipCars available at the North Berkeley BART station, as well.

You have convenient access to two shared full bathrooms and one shared half-bathroom. You also receive an off-street space in the driveway for your parking convenience.

The room and house offer a quiet, safe, secure place for studying, visiting friends and/or touring.

The house features wireless internet, living room, laundry, and a large, serene rear deck with scenic bay views that also overlooks the big backyard with its lush avocado and lemon trees.

The living room has a comfy sofa and cable television, so you can relax and catch up on your favorite programs at your leisure.

For long-term stays that are more than a week, you are welcome to help yourself to sheets, pillow cases, towels, etc. that are located in the linen closet next to the upstairs bathroom. Just put the dirty linen, towels, etc. in the dirty clothes hamper next to the washing machine downstairs when you change your bedding and/or change your towels. (Try not to overload the washer and dryer.)

There are spectacular views of the San Francisco Bay Bridge and the Golden Gate Bridge from this property. And the Educator/Teacher neighbors are very friendly and nice!

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

Thank you for your interest. I look forward to your visit!
