Cozy cottage behind main house, complete kitchen and bath, loft bedroom. Kitchen utensils, ironing board, iron, ipod docking station, wifi, but no TV. Located in a great Berkeley neighborhood with lots of restaurants and shopping within walking distance. A bus to the City is a block and a half away, and BART is an easy walk. My property backs on to an East Bay Municipal Water District reservoir, so even though it is in the heart of the city with two main arteries near by, it is quiet. College Ave. is our nearby shopping street; it runs from the University to the north, down to Broadway to the south and on it you can find just about everything you need and much of what you might want.
-I don't charge a cleaning fee. I clean the cottage between guests, but if you are there for longer than a week, I expect you to clean it regularly yourself. I will call a cleaning service if you would rather I had them come in once a week, but the cost will be additional.
-Please run the fan for 15 minutes after taking a shower, and use the fan over the stove when you cook.
-Please do not put wet clothing or towels on the wood surfaces.
- Please turn off the outside light when you come in at night. It burns dusk to dawn and keeps my neighbor awake.
-Please use only the detergent provided or another HE detergent in the washing machine.
I'm a high school English teacher, working in Marin County. I have one daughter, a perfect granddaughter, a perfect grandson, and a son-in-law who live out of the country. I have lived in Berkeley for many years, most in this neighborhood, although I grew up in Chicago.
