Offering my lovely, fully furnished home: a two story, townhouse-style duplex in North Berkeley. Set back from the street, surrounded by gardens, it’s very quiet and tranquil. There are two bedrooms -one with a large adjoining office. There’s a gourmet kitchen, open dining room, and comfortable living room all with lots of natural light. High speed WiFi, cable TV, and a landline are included. Outside there’s also a private patio, and a small detached garage for off street parking. The rental is in a great location in a beautiful neighborhood: three blocks to the University, two blocks to the Pacific School of Religion, and three blocks to the Gourmet Ghetto with its phenomenal eateries, gourmet shopping, cafes, and boutiques.

The rental is fully and beautifully furnished and includes bedding, towels, and linens for your use. The office features a stately roll-top desk and comfortable office chair. Both beds have memory foam mattresses and down comforters. The kitchen is fully equipped with service for eight, a gas stove, dish washer, many cooking appliances, and plenty of cookware for you to indulge your inner gourmet (there are even culinary herbs growing outside, steps away from the kitchen). The full bath includes a bathtub/shower, and the half-bath has an eco-friendly, innovative greywater recycling feature. There is cable TV, high speed wifi, and a landline for your use. The washer and dryer are located inside the home. Your own private patio is just off the dining room and makes a lovely place to relax, dine, use the charcoal grill, or even work outside with your laptop on sunny days. There is lots of closet space and plenty of room on the bookshelves for all the books you care to bring. A treadmill located inside the home makes it easy to go for a stroll even on rainy days. There is whole house, forced air heating with a programmable thermostat. Children are welcome, and there is a crib, highchair, and playpen available. For your entertainment, there is a library of books, over a hundred DVDs, and an xBox.

To help you focus on your work, stays of three months or more include monthly housekeeping service!

Berkeley is a very walkable city, and quite bicycle friendly. The University is three blocks away, as are grocery stores, restaurants, cafes, pharmacies, boutique shopping, and a weekly farmers’ market. The nearest public transportation is two blocks away, and it is a mile to the nearest BART station (our subway system) with a twenty minute ride to downtown San Francisco. Downtown Berkeley, with its theaters, musical venues, and even more shopping and dining options, is a 15 minute walk from the property. It is a short stroll from the rental to parks and playgrounds, as well as Berkeley’s scenic Rose Garden.

I grew up in Berkeley, and I’m always happy to provide recommendations for local services, restaurants, or activities in the area –I even throw in bits of local history! I live about fifteen minutes away from the property, and while I prefer to give my guests their privacy, I am readily available should any issues arise during your stay.

Smoking is prohibited both inside and outside of the rental in the gardens.

While I welcome most all other pets, for legal reasons I am not able to accommodate dogs –with the exception of service animals.

About Me
As a Berkeley native, I have always been grateful for the rich academic culture and the diversity the University brings to the community. Now I foster that by hosting families from around the world who come to experience Berkeley and all it has to offer.
