Bright 2+ bedroom view home, easy access to Berkeley & San Francisco

Our bright, sunny home on a cul-de-sac in a quiet residential neighborhood has a master bedroom with a Cal King bed that opens onto a large south-facing deck, a second room that doubles as a guest bedroom and office, two full baths, a sun room, and a stunning view.

We have a large living/dining room with a flat-screen TV and stereo system and a large, modern, very well-equipped kitchen with eating area. There's a fireplace, a back garden, a grassy front yard, and a washer and dryer in the 2-car garage. We overlook a marsh (complete with snowy egrets) and a boat harbor, with a wonderful view of Mt. Tam. We're close to hiking and bike trails, shopping, restaurants, San Francisco, the East Bay, the Northern California coast, and the wine country.

This is a private home, not a townhouse. The rent includes water, garbage, high-speed wireless internet, premium TV cable, and gardener - everything except gas/electricity charges, pay-per-view TV, and international phone calls. No smoking, and no cats, please (we're allergic).

The house is available for rent while we travel, typically during the late spring and early fall, but at other times as well. Our dates are flexible, so try us! We're also happy to discuss home swaps.

TESTIMONIAL FROM FORMER RENTERS, BOB AND DIANE

We landed in Jeff and Janis' wonderful house after a year of living in rather small quarters in Paris and traveling Europe. Their quiet, spacious, comfortable home and beautiful gardens were the perfect place for us to land and experience life in the Bay Area. Soon we were on their bicycles and riding along San Francisco Bay. Coming home at night to their peaceful deck overlooking the tidal marsh and bird life from the hot tub became a lovely routine. We enjoy cooking and used their well-stocked and spacious kitchen. We highly recommend this wonderful haven.

About Me
Jeff is a retired university professor (San Francisco State) who now spends much of his time playing the guitar. Janis is a free-lance writer and consultant who recently launched travelonthehouse.com, an informational web site for people like ourselves who swap and rent out their homes. Our two children are grown, and we have two adolescent grandchildren who are now taller than we are. Travel is our passion, and we love vibrant cities like Paris, Rome, and New York. We like to immerse ourselves in the local culture, explore out of the way places, and find wonderful places to eat. .
