About This Listing
This large room with private entrance and bath is located in a quiet, family friendly neighborhood in North Berkeley. Patio doors open east onto a wood deck with hot tub. A peaceful retreat space close to downtown Berkeley, Bart and UC Berkeley.
This quiet garden studio is located in a safe, quiet, centrally located neighborhood. Five blocks from the "gourmet ghetto" with great restaurants and cafes, 20 minute walk to UC Berkeley and a minute walk to both the downtown Bart station and
North Berkeley Bart.
Large space with very comfortable king size bed, pull out leather couch and hot tub in the garden.
I enjoy meeting my guests and chatting but often times we cross paths and never get the chance to meet face to face. I like to give my guests privacy so I stay out of the way and appreciate when they come knocking at my kitchen door to introduce themselves.
Backyard, hottub, wifi
Interaction with Guests
The space is very private and there is potential for little contact but someone is always in the main house so if you need something you can always knock on the front or kitchen door.
We are five blocks from excellent restaurants and cafe's of all different sort, representing the great diversity in the Bay Area.
North Berkeley Bart is about 10 blocks and Downtown Berkeley Bart is 15-20 min walk. Bus lines run one block away on MLK.
Other Things to Note
The room is most comfortable for two but there is a comfy queen pullout. I do charge an additional $25 for additional people to take care of extra linens and towels etc.
The hot tub was exactly that and wonderfully private as well! I was a little dismayed at the lack of wifi anywhere in the cottage except the bathroom, the lack of a microwave, power issues and zero hot or even warm water from the bathroom faucet. I brought up each of these issues via text and only the power outage was addressed.
I stayed here for six nights and found the studio very comfortable and private. As I was busy throughout the day it was great to have a quiet place for a good nights sleep. There were a couple of minor issues with the towels and internet but they were taken care of very quickly. As I was busy I didn't get an opportunity to use the Hot tub or enjoy the deck in the back. I enjoyed my stay and would definitely stay here again.
We enjoyed our stay at this apartment very much! Julia was a great host and the location is perfect for exploring Berkeley.
Very cozy large room, conveniently located in Berkeley, close to the train and restaurants. Julia was quick to respond to our questions. The hot tub in the back is a fantastic plus.

About the Host, Julia
Recently graduated from CCA with a masters in Fine Arts concentrating in Social Practice. I enjoy meeting people, especially from different countries.
I have two kids, 16 and 21, both living at home and a 23 year old going to school in Humboldt. I tend to collect things, including pets. I love to travel, experience new cultures, and spend a lot of time thinking about social, political and psychological issues..........I am totally satisfied by a stimulating conversation over tea or coffee. dabble in yoga and meditation and always enjoy good quality food which makes it hard to imagine moving away from the Bay Area where the food is fresh, organic and spectacular.
