The space

Charming bedroom and sitting area in a lovely Berkeley craftsman home. It has its own spacious bathroom with a great shower, a comfortable full-size bed (a little smaller than a queen) as well as a pull-out sofa bed. There is also a kettle, a small refridgerator and a portable space heater. This room has its own separate entrance so you can come and go as you please. Parking is free, unlimited and right outside the house. You share access to laundry facilities with us.

Located in the Kensington Hills ( on the border line with Berkeley ) with a beautiful view over the bay and the city beyond. It is a 5 minute walk to shops either up or down the hill from our house. Down the hill there is a bakery, a pizzeria, a pub and the fabulous Colusa market where you can buy pretty much anything you might want to eat. Up the hill, there is the popular Inn Kensington, an ice cream parlor, a pharmacy and a great little cafe. 2 mins in the car to Solano Avenue where there are numerous restaurants, movie theaters, bookshops and clothes stores. 10 minute bus ride to UC Berkeley, 15 minute walk to BART to take you into San Francisco.

Minimum two night stay. We don't serve breakfast but there is a great bakery at the bottom of the hill where you can buy the perfect bun and coffee or up the hill for a fully cooked breakfast at Inn Kensington should you be really hungry. We have wi-fi service and shared laundry room facilities.

Ros's is on a quiet little street. Though the place is technically in a basement, it is actually at ground level, with easy access. I loved the fresh hydrangeas she put in the room. It was very spacious and homey. The bed was very firm and only a double, but other than that eve…
