Looking for a comfortable, quiet space? You're here! This sunny, and nicely decorated room (one of two Airbnb rooms in my home) is in a wonderful, safe area of Berkeley, close to shopping and dining, and convenient to UC Berkeley campus. A third room is sometimes used by a (female) friend or family member.

Local transportation is close and convenient, the nearby Marina is gorgeous and we get fresh air off the Bay. The popular Fourth Street shopping area is two short blocks away.

The space

This room (for one female guest) is in a home surrounded by a gorgeous garden. A large window in this room faces south and a wood fence provides privacy. The room is a cozy 10.5 by 11 feet with a comfortable twin bed.

Our home was built in 1909. The ground floor, where the Airbnb rooms are located, and where there is a back door entrance, is two steps down, and several inches below grade. This unit was added in the 50's. The full bathroom and kitchen have both been recently renovated.

Guest access

Guests have access to a full kitchen, and an outdoor table and chairs (on the extension of the driveway) where they can sit in the garden. Our home is two stories, and while my husband and I spend more time on the second level, I have an office and also use facilities and share living space on the ground level where the Airbnb rooms are located.

Interaction with guests

Guests are free to interact with us, or not. We know guests like their privacy so we respect that. We are always available by text, email or phone.

I will generally be on site, as I work from home. I'm happy to make recommendations about places to eat or visit, especially in advance of a guest's trip, if that's helpful for planning.

Other things to note

Travel can be stressful, so my intention is to make sure that guests enjoy themselves, and let me know if I can do anything else to assure a pleasant stay. I go out of my way to help my guests have as nice a stay as possible.

There is one dog on the property in our household -- a standard poodle -- but she is not allowed to enter Airbnb rooms or be in the kitchen. She may, however, entice guests to toss the ball for her, which can be done at the discretion of the guest, with no obligation.

This is a gem. In a great location, close to everything, but very quiet and peaceful, with birds chirping. Beautiful lush garden out back, felt very welcomed, room is cozy and well-appointed, hosts couldn't be more friendly or helpful!

My stay with Lynn exceeded my expectations! She was a gracious host--offering to pick me up from BART and drop me off at the end of my stay, stocking the fridge with my preferences for breakfast, and being available for anything I needed. I appreciated having access to a full kitchen (to make breakfast and coffee in the morning before work). And the garden in the back was lovely to sit. The room was extremely comfortable. And the whole downstairs area, shared by the long-term guest, was spacious and clean. It was a lovely stay overall and I highly recommend Lynn's place!

Lynn is clearly interested in the well-being of the women who stay at her place. The location is just perfect for visiting Berkeley.

As a registered nurse (interested in wellness!) I enjoy facilitating a stay for guests which is as peaceful and comfortable as possible. I love being an Airbnb host, love where I live, and enjoy helping guests enjoy their stay in this area. Our garden is beautiful and is a (seasonal) source of flowers for guests.
