Attractive, Cozy Room close to UCB

House - Private room · Stuart Street, Berkeley, CA 94705, United States

The Space

This room is comfortably-sized (15ft x 11ft) and tastefully decorated, with a comfortable bed, large closet, bureau, desk and chair. It is perfect for visiting students, interns, or Bay-Area visitors as it is 3/4 of a mile from UC Berkeley Campus, 1/3 mile from Alta Bates Medical Summit, and a 15 minute walk to the Ashby BART station.

The room (along with 3 others available to rent) is upstairs where there is a full bathroom (newly remodeled) and a half bathroom for use of those staying upstairs. There is also a lovely living room with full cable, premium channels included. The house is freshly carpeted (shoes-off home), all the rooms have just been re-painted, and the large downstairs kitchen is also newly remodeled with a welcoming new table for enjoying meals if you wish to be social with others in the house. There are two refrigerators, a washer/dryer for laundry, and wireless internet.

The house it is situated in is a very large, 1880's Victorian just on the fringes of downtown Berkeley. This location is ideal in that you are close enough to walk to EVERYTHING, however just outside the heart of Downtown Berkeley in a peaceful, safe neighborhood! Whole Foods and Berkeley Bowl are two fantastic markets within 4 blocks of the house. It is an easy walk/bike ride to the Berkeley campus, Alta Bates Medical Summit, frequent bus service and BART for you rapid transit needs around the East Bay or into San Francisco (18 minute ride). Also within easy walking distance are all different kinds of restaurants (every ethnic cuisine you could ask for, casual to fine-dining), coffee houses, hiking, parks, nightlife, yoga/pilates/dance studios, salons, ALL kinds of shopping... you name it!

While there is ample street parking available, one challenge in almost all Berkeley neighborhoods is the residential zoning, which only allows for 2-hour parking without a permit. Guests have remedied this issue by going to the DMV to get a temporary permit.

Andrea (Mary's granddaughter) will manage all of the bookings and hosting. Her very friendly dog occasionally comes in for visits.

A friendly effort to save everyone time:
The room is already discounted for weekly stays, and further discounted for monthly stays. The rent is firm and fair, you get what you pay for, and there are no exceptions. Thanks for respecting this!

I am primarily looking to rent to graduate students visiting or doing internships at UC Berkeley, and medical professionals doing internships at Alta Bates. Please remember that you are a guest in the San Francisco Bay Area. Wherever you are from, there will be no bigotry or intolerance welcomed into this household whatsoever. We celebrate and honor diversity. If you have any views that are racist, sexist, homophobic, etc., please look elsewhere. Guests must be mature, clean, and respectful of the privacy and space of others. No heavy drinkers or drug users! We have a no-dish-left-behind policy and expect all guests to maintain the cleanliness of the common areas. Each guest will have his/her own kitchen cupboard and refrigerator space should you wish to keep groceries to cook/prepare food.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Очень порадовало радушие хозяев и приветливость остальных гостей, а также чистота и уют в доме, за которыми тщательно следят. Отдельно отмечу удобную большую кровать, просторную ванную. Мне не хватало лишь зеркала в комнате :)

  • Great place for Berkeley student. Safe area, well managed, and conveniently located. The room is shiny and big. Restrooms, laundry and kitchen are quite clean and useful. Parking is easy to find. Definitely recommend.

    November 2013
  • This place is very comfortable and quiet place stay. The room is lovely and spacious. Two grocery stores are in the near vicinity, BART and campus are in walking distance. Definitely recommended.

    October 2013
  • I had a very pleasant stay at Mary's. The room was nice and clean (I was in the Cozy Room, which features a desk, closet, and comfortable bed). The house is conveniently located in quiet residential neighborhood, close to downtown Berkeley/UCB (a 15-20 min walk) and the Ashby BART station. On the first day, I found chocolates on the desk, and Andrea stayed until 6pm so that I could get in. I would certainly stay there again.

    June 2013
  • This was an excellent b&b - lovely kitchen, excellent "Welcome Basket" breakfast foods, and lovely and minimalist room. Would absolutely stay here again - it's an AMAZING location near Downtown Berkeley and the owners were exceedingly kind.

Mary was the owner of this home until she passed peacefully in October 2013. She was a sweet, welcoming 95-year-old woman who loved having guests in her home and was extremely friendly and gracious. Oso, her granddaughter's very friendly dog, often comes in for downstairs-only visits. We continue her airbnb operation to keep her estate alive. Andrea, Mary's granddaughter, manages her affairs and is who you will be in contact with for arrangements.
