The cleaning fee is $150 and a refundable security deposit is $1,000. It includes sleeping space for four people in a bedroom with a queen bed and a large study with two beds available there. Our home includes a beautiful dining room, living room, kitchen, kitchen nook, one and a half bathrooms, tools and supplies closet, and well-landscaped front and backyard (fenced).

We live in a lovely, sunny, well-lighted private home in an organized, friendly and community-minded neighborhood in Berkeley. Several families with children of various ages live nearby. We look out for and take care of our neighborhood and our neighbors. My wife and I have resided in Berkeley for the last 50 years and in our current home for over 30 years. During this time we have worked to maintain, improve and beautify our home, so we are looking for orderly tenants. We interact with our guests as much as our guests need it. We are available by email and by phone.

The upstairs bedroom has a queen bed with a firm mattress and a soft mattress topper. The study has high speed internet, a sectional couch, two single aerobeds, treadmill, exercise equipment, weights, steam iron, ironing board, and entertainment system. The upstairs bathroom includes a large claw-foot tub and shower. The first floor includes a large dining room and living room with a fireplace and piano, a full kitchen, breakfast nook, and half bathroom with a toilet and sink. A men's and women's bicycle and a guitar are available upon request. Guests will be able to access all grounds on the property and the entire house except for one locked bedroom which we use as a storage space.

Our part of town is very flat and walkable. We are a 10-15 minute walk to the University of California, the downtown Berkeley Theater District, movie houses, popular shopping and dining areas, and two full-service food markets. Bus transport is one block away. B.A.R.T. trains to various parts of the East Bay and to San Francisco are a 15 minute walk from our house.

Berkeley is a 15 minute drive to San Francisco and 15 minute drive to miles of beautiful hiking trails in the Berkeley and Oakland Hills. Berkeley, San Francisco, and the University of California offer many cultural, social, and political events.

The San Francisco Bay Area is exciting in so many ways. It includes sailing opportunities, beaches, the Point Reyes National Seashore with beautiful hikes and backpacking along the Pacific Ocean, Muir Woods with gigantic redwoods, and Mount Tamalpais with stunning views in Marin County. We are also a 3-5 hour drive from the Sierra Mountains, Mammoth Lakes, and Yosemite National Park.

About Me
I am a retired public high school English as a Second Language, English, and U.S. History teacher. My wife is a retired elementary school teacher. We are both active in the climate movement. I play guitar, sing and I am a member of a horse co-op in Orinda, CA. I ride and take care of other members' horses. My wife, Laurie, does educational work about the the climate crisis and studies Ikebana, (Japanese flower arranging). We have a son in West Hollywood who is a doctor of clinical psychology at the Central Los Angeles VA Hospital. We have rented our home on airbnb and stayed in other airbnb locations. We are very neat and respectful of other homes where we have stayed and we expect the same treatment for guests in our home.
