Six minutes’ walk from UC Berkeley - on the delightful and desirable “Near Northside” neighborhood. Lots of “Berkeley character” in a 1920’s Tudor building. Second floor 2-bedroom 1-bath apartment has been carefully decorated and furnished. Deck on sunny west side beneath redwood trees. Living room has a large skylight. Dining area and well as a living room and two bedrooms.

The space

•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
•Apartment is on the second (top) floor
•Comfortable living room with hardwood floors and an old (non-working) ornate fireplace and mantel.
•2 bedrooms, each with a closet and one queen sized bed. 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 granite breakfast bar - rear entrance door leading to back stairs and parking area.
•Bathroom with walk-in shower, and antique marble lined walls.
•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 Neighborhood:
•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:
•Minimum stay 14 days.
•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.

We four students spent 40 days here for UC-Berkeley summer session. It is an absolutely perfect place to stay. Quiet, beautiful, safe. Walking to campus within 10 mins. The house is big and comfortable, including everything you need.

We spent a month in this location, and we were very satisfied with the apartment and service. Location is great, just a ten minutes walk from downtown Berkeley. Everything went smoothly, with no glitches whatsoever. Margaret and the "janitors" Binyam and Bruk were very helpful, and contacted us frequently to ensure everything to be OK. The apartment can be drafty, especially if the weather is cold, but we we provided an extra heater for chilly mornings. Possibility for parking in the backyard is valuable if you need to rent a car during your stay. As an overall evaluation, the apartment and arrangements were just as described and expected, and we would gladly spend more time in this location if we ever again need to visit Bay Area.
