This private, second-floor apartment lies on a bicycle boulevard in vibrant and friendly South Berkeley. San Francisco is 20 minutes away on BART and UC Berkeley is 10 minutes away on bike or by bus (or a 20-minute walk through great neighborhoods).
The apartment has a queen bed, large closet, full kitchen, full bath, living room, outdoor sitting area and lots of daylight through western-facing windows. It opens onto a porch with views of the Berkeley Hills, newly installed flower and vegetable gardens, fruit trees, and a big patio.
We'll provide wifi, all the cooking supplies you'll need, locally-roasted coffee and a small library.
Walking distance to 2 Farmer's Markets, the famed Berkeley Bowl, Asbhy BART, 2 bus lines, and with easy access to the rest of the Bay, this lovely home away from home is perfect for a getaway or plugging in to everything the Bay Area has to offer.
The Bay Area abounds with culinary diversity and we offer an extensive reference binder with recommendations for fantastic restaurants within almost any cuisine. Parks, playgrounds, hikes, gardens, museums, theaters - let us know and we can direct you.
This is a great place for anyone visiting for meetings, guest teaching, or seeing friends/family in the surrounding neighborhoods.

Other things to note
RE: Occupancy Taxes ~ We just received notice from the City of Berkeley on Saturday August 19th that we will need to collect an occupancy tax of 12% from all guests beginning September 1st. We've reached out to the Airbnb platform to request that they incorporate this into the booking process but it will take some time and we've not been given much notice in this case. This is something to be aware of and will be collected in cash upon your arrival.
We offer one queen-sized bed and can arrange an inflatable mattress or cot for an additional guest. We have a large shared garden and outdoor space that is peaceful and comfortable.
One off-street parking spot may be reserved for visitors upon request.
Quiet hours are 9pm-9am. If you arriving late night or departing in the early morning, please remember to be extra quiet as sound travels in the house.
No Smoking: Apartment and property are non-smoking.
When our family travels, we make an effort to stay with local hosts in order to really get to know the people and communities we visit. Bicycling around town, hunting through small market places, whiling away the afternoon hours listening to stories and watching the weather change - these are the small moments which have always made our adventures meaningful - and this is what motivates us to open our home to Airbnb guests!
We love the outdoors, gardening, rich food and wine, sweet music and spending time with good people. We hope you do too!
