Cozy private room w/shared bath and kitchen. Our home is located in quiet, safe neighborhood, a 5 minute walk to wonderful shops & dining in berkeley's elmwood district, near buses, BART, groceries. walking distance to UCB & downtown.

The space

We have a professional cleaner that cleans prior to your arrival. Your own private room which can accommodate 1-2 people. The shared Kitchen Nook has a microwave, toaster, and a tea/coffee maker, the bathroom is also shared. The bathroom has a shower and pedestal sink, and the toilet is in a separate room. We provide complimentary tea/coffee and toiletries such as shampoo/conditioner/soap and a hair dryer and iron. We work hard to keep the the rooms and common areas very neat and clean. The full size bed is comfortable with a down comforter and clean, comfy linens. The entrance to this room is right inside the home's main entry door, so you don't have to walk deep into our residence to get to your room. We have laundry facilities onsite.
We strive to create a welcoming environment and to uphold a high level of professionalism in our effort to provide a top quality accommodation for your visit. There are 4 other rooms that share this space, although your particular room is private, its just the bathroom and kitchen nook that is shared, otherwise you have total privacy. It is located on the first floor of our home, we reside upstairs. So, it's more of a Hostel experience, which can be a fun social experience, although we've found most people are busy and keep to themselves. We have an xFinity security system that monitors the entire premises.

Guest access

On-sight laundry to use between 10am-8pm.

Interaction with guests

As we are often consumed with our kids and careers, we don't have a lot of interaction with guests but we do provide complete, descriptive self-check in info prior to your arrival. We certainly do try to make the acquaintance of our guests.

Other things to note

The counter-culture, flower power center of the 60s, bohemian Berkeley has evolved into a culinary and cultural travel scene. Shift into low gear and people-watch along quirky Telegraph Avenue while checking out the bookstores and cafes. After strolling through the UC Berkeley campus, the Berkeley Rose Garden and the Downtown Arts District, head into the hills for an outdoor adventure in Tilden Park or cruise down to the waterfront park, where the San Francisco skyline sparkles across the bay.

Great stay. All instructions provided, helped me check in as late as 2 am. Never got a chance to meet the hosts, but fantastic location.

Great deal and a large, comfortable bed. The bathroom and shower were fine. There's no table in the kitchen alcove or desk in the room, so it's not a great place to spend time when not sleeping or reading. The check-in instructions were very clear and detailed and everything went very smoothly during my visit.

This was the worst check-in experience I have had in 30+ trips on AirBnb. Hosts are not on-site and were unreachable when I had a problem checking-in. Because of poor key management and guest communication, someone had already checked into my room when I arrived. The situation was not resolved until 11 pm (I arrived at 8 pm) and I was wandering around Berkeley with my suitcases as there was no secure location to leave them. The only reason the situation was resolved was because I communicated directly with the other guest when they returned. Despite calling and texting the hosts, I received no response or apology. Other than the problems checking-in, the room was as described in the posting. It's a 13 minute walk to the BART metro station. Given the shared bathroom with 5 rooms, there was a morning shower line.
