The kitchen has all stainless steel appliances including brand new convection oven and "silent" Bosch dishwasher, gas stove, microwave, and is generously stocked with cookware, dishes, utensils – everything you need. Many food staples and spices are already in place but can be removed if you prefer. Extras: Vitamix, Cuisinart Food Processor, crock pot/slow cooker, vegetable juicer, electric mixer and more. Heirloom dining table seats 6 comfortably; extra dishes, table linens and plenty of wine & cocktail-making accessories are also included.

About Me
Hello, future visitor to Berkeley. About me: I've lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for over 40 years (the past 26 years in Berkeley) and love it here. My professional life has been in the field of human research subject protections (IRB). I'm actively involved in our rich music community, environmental issues, wildlife and pet advocacy, and run my own small business (pet-friendly sightseeing tours). I've had the privilege to visit Great Britain, Spain, Italy, Austria, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Thailand, as well as many places in the U.S. -- sometimes for pleasure and other times on concert tours. I welcome visitors from all nations and backgrounds. I would love to provide you with a comfortable home where you can relax and enjoy all that Berkeley, the East Bay and California have to offer. We welcome pets and have a fenced back yard with an organic garden where you can relax and enjoy home-grown vegetables. It's quiet at the house but we are close to a lively, colorful neighborhood, 1.5 miles from UC Berkeley campus, close to the freeway and all public transit (e.g. bus to Cal or Berkeley High, BART to S.F.), have a dedicated bike lane on our street, and many international restaurants, cafés and interesting shops and other places to explore. The nearby East Bay Regional Parks offer beauty and recreation minutes away by bike or car. I prefer a longer lease, but am flexible and will do my best to accommodate the academic calendar. All dates are open!
