Summer home for visiting Berkeley faculty; three bedroom, furnished, internet, near bart and fantastic restaurants

We have all that you will need to be comfortable in our clean and charming home which is minutes from UC Berkeley and ten minute walk to Bart Station. Lovingly maintained with three bedrooms, two and one half baths and a great patio and three huge sequoia trees in the backyard. Two rooms have queen beds, one has a twin bed and there is a futon bed in living room. Hardwood floors and lots of natural light in every room. WE have appliances and cooking gear to suit your every need. Our family will travel abroad and we have never been disappointed to rent to academics from around the world. We often rent our car(s) as well. This house is priced far below market rate, because we are eager to find responsible academic family to enjoy our home.

Albany is one of the nicest and safest places to live in the east bay. Two blocks from the Albany Pool, across the street from the bike path and the elevated Bart track (with double windows, you can hear BART, but you do not feel disturbed). We have an enclosed backyard blessed by three enormous redwood trees and a vegetable garden to enjoy. The yard is safe for kids to play, across the street is green stretch for throwing balls, and two blocks away is the Albany Middle School playground- open all summer. While our house borders the Bart track- in the house you learn to overlook the muffled sound, good news always parking on the street and you look out across a bike path and many families enjoying the outdoors.

We are near the best shopping and restaurants in the East Bay- from Trader Joe's to the Chinese Ranch Market, and restaurant cuisine from around the world. We live in a well-established neighborhood with families who live there because we have the best public schools in the East Bay- This is a no shoes and no smoking home. We are renting well below market rate to insure we find a responsible tenant who will enjoy and care for our home.

About Me
Emerita Professor in the performing arts frequently working on projects in Asia. Research focus is Indonesia, more specifically Java and Bali. I directed the UCLA Center for Intercultural Performance, World Festival of Sacred Music, Foundation for World ARts, and am a consultant for the Balinese group Gamelan Cudamani. My lifestyle is grounded in arts and culture and my home has hosted many artists and scholars over the years. I believe in the vibration of a place and of people and am protective of who I let live in my space. A grandmother of four, I love kids and welcome them in my home.
