An elegant remodeled apartment – quite spacious compared with many studio apartments. It will comfortably accommodate 1 or 2 people. Walk to campus in 12 minutes. Many amenities within 10-15 minutes’ walk on Telegraph and College Avenues.

The space
• This renovated studio apartment is on the second floor of a beautiful 1911 apartment building.
• Tastefully furnished and artistically decorated.
• Queen-size chest bed with storage drawers underneath.
• Large and well-equipped eat-in kitchen, with a dishwasher
• Desk/workspace in an alcove off the kitchen
• Modern tiled bathroom with step-in shower and dramatic art tile floor.
• Wi-fi & flat-screen TV are included
• Washers & dryers a short distance away through the back door

The Neighborhood

The studio is in the Elmwood residential district, 2 blocks from Telegraph Avenue, 1 block from College Avenue, very close to public transport. The location has a walk score of 94 which classifies it as a “Walker’s Paradise”! Leave your car behind! You can rent a car on an as-needed basis from Zipcar or City Car Share locations very close by.
It’s 5-10 minutes’ walk from numerous ethnic and specialty restaurants (Italian, Indian, Thai, Ethiopian, French, Japanese, burgers, pizza, Swiss-style fondue, Chinese, Korean barbecue, a Subway), coffee houses, bookstores, vintage clothing stores, music stores, and student hangouts. A large CVS pharmacy is 2 blocks away, and Whole Foods is 5 minutes by car or a 15 minute walk (6-1/2 blocks).

Access:

There are buses on College Avenue (1 block away) to downtown Berkeley, the 3 nearby BART stations (Bay Area Rapid Transit system), Oakland and San Francisco. The Claremont Hotel & Conference Center is just over a mile away (20 min walk). There is freeway access either at Telegraph Avenue & 55th Street (about 2 miles) or Ashby Avenue (about 3 miles) where you can drive to San Francisco, Oakland, Marin County & the Golden Gate Bridge, Napa Valley, and Lake Tahoe. Twenty minutes driving (outside rush hours!) will take you to San Francisco across the Bay Bridge. If you take BART from any of the 3 nearby stations, it’s about a 20 minute ride to SF.

Pricing

•Our rates are all-inclusive. We pay the Berkeley business license tax, but it is not charged to you.
•Monthly discounts (for stays of 28 days or more)
•The accommodation charge includes cleaning and stocking with essential supplies before you move in. There is no separate cleaning fee.


The fine print (otherwise known as house rules):
• Minimum stay 14 days.
• Strictly no smoking anywhere in the apartment or elsewhere on the property! A Berkeley City ordinance prohibits smoking in apartments and common areas of multi-unit dwellings.
•No parties or loud noise. This is a generally quiet residential neighborhood, and we want to keep it that way. Quiet time is after 10 PM and before 7:30 AM.
•Sorry, no pets.
•Please remove your outdoor shoes and wear soft shoes or slippers inside the apartment. Since the apartment has wood floors, your downstairs neighbors will appreciate it.
•For residential purposes only (home office OK).

Other things to note
CLEANING AND DISINFECTING BEFORE YOU CHECK IN

This apartment undergoes a deep cleaning and disinfection before and after every guest, in compliance with the Airbnb Enhanced Clean program. Over and above those procedures, we add extra disinfecting, using a BioSpray Surface Cleaner and Sanitizer system . You can look up BioSpray, but here’s a quote from their website:

“The quick-drying BioSpray D2 removes residual moisture from surfaces and is recommended for use as a sanitizer on food processing equipment, dairy equipment, food utensils, dishes, silverware, glasses, sink tops, countertops, refrigerated storage, and display equipment and other hard nonporous food contact surfaces. Lab calibrated spray-and-shoot technology for more effective coverage, reaching inside even the smallest cracks and crevices, with better results than manual sprayers or wipes.”

Also
“BioSpray D2 is a combination of isopropyl alcohol and a powerful quaternary ammonium compound.” It is a hospital-grade disinfectant and is “included on EPA list of disinfectants for use against SARS-COV-2 (Search EPA# 73232-1).”

Born in England, now living in California for many years. Two (!!) graduate degrees from UC Berkeley. I have been an Airbnb guest in the US and several other countries and have appreciated the experience of staying in a real home, a place with warmth and character, in an interesting walkable neighborhood. That’s what my co-host (my husband Jack) and I offer you, too, in Berkeley – a vibrant town with an internationally renowned university, distinctive architecture, innovative restaurants, serious coffee houses, bookstores, parks, museums, theater, a lively music scene – and conveniently close to San Francisco.
