This renovated and artistically decorated 2-bedroom 1-bath apartment is located in the delightful and desirable “Near Northside” neighborhood, 6 minutes’ walk from UC Berkeley.
About the apartment:
•It is small but charming, fully furnished and equipped, and artistically decorated with a “cottage like” feel, in a quiet tree-lined neighborhood.
•Suitable for a couple, 2 colleagues, or a small family.
•Lots of “Berkeley character” in a 1920’s Tudor building
•Comfortable living/dining room with hardwood floors and an old (non-working) ornate fireplace and mantel.
•2 bedrooms, each with a mirrored closet. We could remove the bed from one of the bedrooms if you wish to use it as an office.
•Fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher and small breakfast bar - rear entrance door leading to parking area.
•Bathroom with walk-in shower - 2 showerheads.
•All utilities provided including cable TV and wi-fi.
•Laundry facilities at the rear of the building (a few steps from the back door).
• The apartment is ideal for a couple, or a small family, or 2 colleagues.
Although the apartment has 2 bedrooms, it is on the small side and can accommodate a maximum of 4 people.
•Quiet and peaceful - at the foot of “Holy Hill" with several seminary schools.
•It's a 6 minute walk to the UC campus - although longer if you prefer a leisurely-paced stroll along tree-lined streets or you want to stop to pick up an espresso on the way!
•You are very close to Euclid Avenue with a selection of cafes, deli’s, restaurants, and a small grocery store.
•10 minutes’ walk from Berkeley’s so-called “Gourmet Ghetto” with many fine and eclectic dining experiences including Alice Waters’ iconic Chez Panisse, the very first Peets Coffee, and the Cheeseboard Pizza Collective.
•11-12 minutes’ walk to the Berkeley Rose Garden (where you can see spectacular sunsets over the SF Bay) and Codornices Park on Euclid Avenue.
•You can walk to downtown Berkeley and the BART station (Bay Area Rapid Transit system) in about 20 minutes. There is bus service a few blocks away.
•Twenty minutes driving will take you to San Francisco across the Bay Bridge (outside of rush hours!), or it’s 20 minutes via BART. Driving to Marin County, Napa Valley and Lake Tahoe are also easy options.
•The rate is all-inclusive. We pay the Berkeley business license tax, but it is not charged to you.
The fine print:
•One off-street parking space is available for you at the rear of the building. Please don’t park in the driveway or anywhere that blocks vehicle access for other residents.
•Strictly no smoking anywhere in the building or the grounds! A Berkeley City ordinance prohibits it in multi-family buildings and common areas.
•This is a quiet residential building in a serene neighborhood (beneath redwood trees) Please, no parties or loud noise! Take extra care about noise between 10:00 p.m. and 8:00 a.m.
•Sorry, no pets.
The fine print:
• Minimum stay 14 days. This is a City of Berkeley requirement.
• Our rates are all-inclusive. We pay the Berkeley business license tax and rent registration fees, but those are not charged to you.
• Check-in 3:00 pm or later; check-out by 11:00 a.m. Any changes to these times need to be arranged in advance.
• Please let us know your approximate arrival time. If you are likely to arrive after 10:00 pm, we will provide self check-in instructions.
• Absolutely NO smoking anywhere in the apartment, on the deck or elsewhere on the property! A Berkeley City ordinance prohibits it in apartments and common areas of multi-unit dwellings.
•Please, no parties or loud noise – this is a quiet residential neighborhood, and we want to keep it that way.
• Sorry, no pets.
• Treat the apartment with care - as you would for your own home.
• One off-street parking space at the rear of the building. Please don't park in the driveway or anywhere that blocks access for other residents.
• Please respect the other residents of the building – introduce yourself when you see them.

Born in England, now living in California for many years. Two (!!) graduate degrees from UC Berkeley. Frequent travel – tired of chain hotels. 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.
