Description

The Space

Cozy guest room w/private bath in lovely house in the Berkeley Hills; walking distance to hiking trails and other attractions in Tilden Park (the golf course, merry-go-round, Lake Anza, Steam Trains, Botanical Gardens), two blocks to the bus stop (#65 & 67 bus from Grizzly Peak and Muir way, 15 minutes to UC Berkeley, 20 minutes to downtown Berkeley/BART), ample parking, and a quick (5 minute) car ride to the University of California campus, San Francisco (20 minutes), Marin County, Wine Country, Oakland, and great restaurants (the Gourmet Ghetto, made famous by Chez Panisse and other fine ethnic eateries in North Berkeley, are only 6 minutes by car), cultural attractions, etc. Perfect for individuals or couples who want to explore the Bay Area.

The room is fully furnished with two comfy twin beds, built in bookshelves/desk and Bay windows overseeing the garden.

It has its own beautifully-renovated bathroom with a nice shower, and private entrance from the side of the house. It faces our garden of roses, azaleas and ferns, and with frequent visits by the hummingbird. The guest space is fully equipped with its own microwave, mini-fridge, hotplate/stove top, toaster oven, coffee maker, hot water kettle, pots and pans, plates, cups and utensils, towels, linen, home entertainment system (large flat screen TV with surround sound, DVD, stereo unit), with free wi-fi and cable TV, and access to washer/ dryer.

The room is a little small for two people once the trundle bed (second twin mattress) is pulled out (given the built-in desk and home entertainment system), but perfect for one!

This is a very peaceful and verdant environment to relax, yet close to so many fun things to do.

Guest Access

The guest space is fully equipped with its own microwave, mini-fridge, hotplate/stove top, expresso/capuccino maker, hot water kettle, pots and pans, plates, cups and utensils, towels, linen, home entertainment system (TV, DVD, stereo), with free wi-fi and access to washer/ dryer.

Interaction with Guests

We are friendly people who love to make recommendations to our favorite restaurants or hikes, and often invite our guests to join us for brunch on the weekends (make great chocolate crepes ;) We have made new friends as Airbnb hosts. Be warned--our 6 year-old twin boys are very chatty! :-) Must like kids (you will hear them playing! But we do provide ear plugs for sleep and studying for our guests who are more sensitive to those sounds :)

The Neighborhood

The Berkeley Hills: walking distance to hiking trails and other attractions in Tilden Park (the golf course, merry-go-round, Lake Anza, Steam Trains, Botanical Gardens), and a quick ride to the University of California campus, San Francisco, Marin County, Wine Country, and great restaurants (AKA the Gourmet Ghetto, made famous by Chez Panisse and other fine ethnic eateries), cultural attractions, etc. Perfect for individuals or couples who want to explore the Bay Area.

Getting Around

Two blocks to the bus stop to downtown/BART (#65, #67), ample parking in front of the house. Buses run every 20 minutes in the mornings and evenings, once an hour during the day/night, then stop running entirely at 8pm. After that you need a car, or taxi, Uber, Lyft, etc. The bus takes 20 minutes to downtown/BART, 15 minutes to UC Berkeley Campus. Walking/biking distance to Lawrence Berkeley Labs. Having a car in the Hills is ideal for grocery shopping and getting around.

Other Things to Note

The room is a little small for two people once the trundle bed (second twin mattress) is pulled out (given the built-in desk and home entertainment system), but perfect for one!

Sorry, no same day reservations (we need a little time to get the room ready for our guests so cannot take last minute requests).

This is a very peaceful and verdant environment to relax, yet close to so many fun things to do.

House Rules

This is a no smoking home. The room can accommodate one or two people, or a couple with a small child. No pets please. This is a vegetarian home so please don't cook meat in the common area (OK in your room). We have very sociable twin boys and a cat (which means that in the mornings and other times you will likely hear kids in the living room playing or getting ready for school!).

Normal check out time is 12pm. If you need to stay a little later (up to 2pm at the latest) please let us know in advance. Check in time is after 3pm on weekends, and after 5pm on weekdays (usually home from work by 5:30pm and can be there to greet you, show you to your private suite, and give you the key to your entrance at the side of the house). Just call us before you head over to arrange the time, and get directions.
