The Space

Welcome to Berkeley CA!

Our comfy guest room is furnished with a firm double bed, work table, dresser, TV, and rocking chair. The closet is generous, all linens are provided, washer and dryer are available, and there is wireless internet. It's a perfect situation for visiting scholars, people in transition, or tourists wanting an alternative to a hotel!

Usually we rent the guest room to individuals but can on occasion accommodate couples, so please inquire.

Guest Access

The house and bathroom (with tub and shower) are shared with a 65 year-old woman, who is friendly, tolerant, and eco-conscious, and one to two other guests of varying ages. The kitchen is well-equipped, you'll have your own space for food, and the large garden is available for your enjoyment. There are two independent but friendly cats in the household.

Interaction with Guests

I much enjoy hosting and am always happy to answer questions and help you feel at home. We have a casual and congenial household, and hope you'll feel like making yourself a part of it. Your privacy will be respected.

The Neighborhood

Our neighborhood, composed of vintage houses from varying eras, is safe and quiet.The location is great- just a block to BART and buses, and easy walking distance to the Monterey Market shopping area, Berkeley Natural Grocery, University Avenue, and several cafes.

Getting around

The North Berkeley BART station is literally one block from our house. It's about a 25 minute walk (or 5 minute BART ride) to downtown Berkeley and the university, and BARTing to San Francisco takes about 30 minutes. We're in the Berkeley "flatlands", so walking around is easy, and the Ohlone Greenway, an extended bike/pedestrian path, crosses our block. Inquire about our bike to rent.

Other Things to Note

Please do note that you will be sharing one bathroom with up to 3 other people, which works just fine as long as everybody is considerate and communicative. The guest room is conveniently located right next to the bathroom.

  • Cece was a great host and I spent a perfect time at her place. The room is very nice and clean and the area quiet.
    I highly recommend staying at Cece's to anyone visiting Berkeley or the Bay Area.

  • Cece is a very kind host and very eco-friendly. The place is nice and quiet in a residential area. Conveniently close to BART. Easy stay.

  • The location is great: 1 block away from bart, 25 minutes walk from Berkeley campus, 5-10 minutes walk from Monterey market, the best fruit and vegetable market probably in the whole Bay Area! Cece's house is also great: cosy and furnished with every sort of kitchen stuff which you are allowed to use. The garden is amazing (she is a garden designer), and if you have time to stay out and read a book it is also a great resoruce! The room is big and comfortable and bright. Cece is a nice and special person which will be soon your friend. Living in her house I also met many nice and interesting persons, who also became good friends! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

  • I am eternally grateful to Cece for making my orientation to life in Berkeley so pleasant. The room is indeed comfy and only a block from the North Berkeley BART. The off street parking accommodations have been perfect and have given me the chance to have my Illinois-registered car successfully smog checked and ready for a trip to the CA DMV. In fact, after a 5-day drive from Chicago to Berkeley with all my stuff, I found myself in comfort heaven with the room's queen-sized bed, organic sheets, an exquisite comforter and light-filled, clean space. This is my first AirBnB experience, and I am thrilled that the photos of the room matched the reality! I highly recommend Cece's comfy guest room and her hospitality.

  • Cece is a gracious host who provided me a wonderful place to stay. I felt bad having arrived in the wee hours of the morning because I missed a connecting flight but she made me feel truly welcomed. The room is so well furnished, I felt like I was coming home to my own room. The area is nice, quiet and safe. Lovely garden with several fruit trees.

    Berkeley is a very walkable city but if you don't feel like walking much, the N. Berkeley BART is a mere 3-minute walk from the house. There is a great Mexican bakery/cafe, Andronico's, farmer's markets, Trader Joe's, Popeye's (for fast food lovers), Gourmet Ghetto and the Monterey Market within a 20-minute walking radius. Great, great, great location!

    I would highly recommend Cece and her wonderful abode!
