Your own room and own bathroom in a quiet Berkeley house with two graduate students and one Labradoodle puppy.
Hello, and thank you for your interest in our home!
Our available bedroom is 12’ x 11’, with hardwood floors and lots of natural light from windows on two sides. There is a private full bath adjacent to the room. The room is located in the upper wing of the house, while our bedroom is in the back of the house, so your space is quite private for the most part. The room is sparely furnished with a full-size bed, a desk, a nightstand, and a mini-fridge. One person can comfortably stay, or a couple can make do. The bathroom is equipped with shower gel and shampoo.
As a guest, you have full and exclusive use of the rented bedroom and bathroom during your stay. Kitchen use is limited to getting a glass of water or using the microwave.
As for us, we are two happily married thirty-something graduate students at UC Berkeley and one Labradoodle puppy. We are quiet people who typically spend our days working on campus and our evenings relaxing at home. Our dog is very friendly and loves people, so you must be comfortable around dogs.
As mentioned above, we are quiet and mellow at home (the people; Levon the dog is quite exuberant). We aim to make our guests to feel welcome in our home, but we also highlight that our rental room is a private space where someone can unwind quietly after a day of activity. We are open to having a friendly conversation with our guests, but don't expect anyone to socialize.
Our single-family home is on a quiet street in a residential neighborhood, but we are half a block from San Pablo Ave., which has plenty of restaurants, bars, and cafes. It is about 1 mile to Fourth St. shopping and 1.5 miles to downtown Berkeley.
The nearest BART station is North Berkeley, about 1 mile/ a 20-minute walk from our home. It's easy to get around from our home on AC Transit bus lines 49, 51B, and 72. The bus lines provide convenient access to UC Berkeley, which is about 1.7 miles away. If you have a car, we are very close to the I-80 freeway and there is no trouble finding parking on the street, with no permit required.
If you are interested in booking the room, please send us a message with a little bit about you and your intentions during your stay in Berkeley. We require that the reservation be made with the staying guest's Airbnb account; we can no longer accept proxy reservations. We also do not accept same-day reservations.
Thanks for checking us out!

Great room, very friendly hosts and an adorable dog. This is an excellent deal. I would recommend having a bike or car as a means of transportation.
You'll have the upstairs room and bathroom to yourself. They have a very friendly, fluffy lab-sized dog. He doesn't bother you if you're up in your room, so if dogs are not your thing, you don't have to worry about it.
They were good hosts and I wouldn't hesitate to book another stay with them.
Hi Ming, glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Levon definitely took to you right away! But for the potential guests who are on the fence about staying in a house with a dog, we believe that it is best for them to not book our room. Our guy likes to interact with people, and our most satisfied guests have been those who really enjoy being around dogs!
Lanwei & Mark (and Levon) were good hosts. Room was clean and comfortable. They gave me a key and was able to come and go as needed. Will go back again the next time I visit Berkeley.
Lanwei and Mark were very nice hosts, and Levon is adorable! There was a lot of privacy being on the second floor. The room is simple and comfortable with good light. I really appreciated the private bath and small fridge. I was on a work trip so I also appreciated the good, comfy bed..I slept really well:) thanks L and M
Thank you Lanwei for supporting my comfort during my stay with you. I especially appreciated your willingness to disconnect wifi internet at night due to my hyper sensitivities to electro magnetic frequencies.thank you again.
Great stay. Close to bart. Very comfy bed and clean bathroom. Internet was very quick. Would recommend to anyone. Great location for the price
We had a nice stay in Berekely. The room is pretty basic but has everything you need. The bathroom and the room are clean and it easy to get around town. Also a lot of restaurants are close by which was really nice. We enjoyed our stay.
Lanwei and Mark were very friendly and helpful. Place was wonderful too, I wouldn't hesitate to stay again.
Nice room and private bath, great value for money in a convenient part of Berkeley. Lanwei and Mark were great hosts, and Levon the dog is very friendly!
Lanwei and Mark were nice hosts, and I appreciated the quiet house and Levon the dog is sweet. The room and private bathroom were very clean and comfortable, and the fridge in my room was great. It was a perfect location for my week in Berkeley, thanks!
