Your room:

• Room is cozy (does not feel cramped) with queen bed, desk, file cabinet/bookshelf, and rocking chair in the room.
• Keep the door open to the backyard for an expansive feeling -- the green, flowering, relaxing, back yard feels like it’s part of your room.

• 3 blocks to Berkeley Bowl West - amazing grocery store!
• Walking distance to brew pubs, coffee shops, several restaurants, etc. An easy bike ride to LOTS and LOTS more of the same.

Who I am : this is a clean, quiet (but social), food-loving, non-smoking household. I do chi gung / yoga / meditate every day. This is a quiet residential neighborhood. You should love & embrace home as a happy, relaxing place. This is a great place to work, relax, read a book, write a book (or a dissertation!).

Monthly rent is $1250.00 and includes wifi access, all utilities, access to hottub and yard, washer/dryer, offstreet parking. I’ll ask you for 1st month + $1250.00 deposit, a credit / reference / employment verification check, and we'll have a detailed conversation about “what do we both expect as housemates, house rules, etc” to make sure we're a good fit!

About Me
Quiet (but fun loving), "mid-career" Recruiting / HR / Coaching / Training professional with 2 shy black cats. Passionate about local healthy / tasty food and flavors, art, music, color, and finding good cheap wine. :-) My home is my quiet relaxation place, and am thrilled my neighbors look out feel the same way (and look out for each other)! Lived abroad for several years, and think everyone should do at least 1 semester abroad. Enjoy interesting people and conversations, creativity in all forms, bike riding along the BayTrail, QiGung, cooking Ethiopian and Indian food, and searching for new "non grain" solution to awesome sourdough "bread" or crackers.
