Well set up with all the basics, very clean and functional and the owners are friendly and helpful. Our favorite part was the backyard, which was both beautiful and relaxing with a nice view, perfect for a glass of wine after a busy day. Good location for getting around Berkeley, bus stop right out front.

This is a very quiet place to stay with a small table in the garden for breakfast. Bed is comfortable with a foam bed topper. There is plenty of kitchen equipment to make a quick meal. We will be back!

Very quiet back studio with a view. Always found a parking right in front of the house. The garden was nice for morning coffee.

Studio with private entrance, and patio garden with view across Bay. Ideal public transportation to Downtown Berkley. Friendly, responsive yet unimposing contact with owner living above.

We had a lovely stay at Shahin's studio in Berkeley. The place is simple but had everything we needed, and Shahin was a kind host. The view from the garden is spectacular. It's a very pretty 20-minute walk down to Gourmet Ghetto, which suited us just fine, but there's also a bus stop directly by the house. As other reviewers also mention, the bed was a little hard, but we felt overall that the place was an excellent value for the area.

The beautiful garden and spectacular views outside the door and casement windows is even better than the pictures. We loved both morning and afternoon at the table outside our room. The room itself is spacious and painted brightly, and storage for clothes is good. The quilt on the bed and pillows were wonderful, and perfect for the cool nights. The stationary bike was a nice touch. There was enough reading light, which we appreciate. We loved the heater fan in the bathroom, which immediately ended the night coolness. Our host was quite busy, as were we, and we did not connect til the morning of our departure, but he and his wife were gracious, and enjoyed meeting them very much.

I fell in love with Berkeley ever since I landed here and then called it home. I studied at Cal, I've been living here for 36 years and I've worked in Berkeley and all over the Bay Area during these years.

I love the Bay Area for its natural beauty, diversity and culture. I’m very social and easy going and love sharing my excitement for my home with others. I’m easily accessible and can be a good source of information for you to discover Berkeley, San Francisco, Oakland the greater Bay Area. I have spent lots of time outdoors as well and can share my tips for exploring the natural beauty of Northern California.

I live with my wife and our cat Tenaya.

I'm looking forward to hosting you on your next trip to the Bay Area
