J1 Beautiful, Sunny, Furnished Room in Berkeley Home

This room has a private garden with deck.

We seek one scholar or other visitor for our spacious and private front room this coming academic year.

Your sunny room is the largest in our house at approximately 13 x 16 feet. It is right next to a garden, which you can view from the three biggest of its five windows. It has a coffered ceiling, an arched doorway, a tiled non-working fireplace surround, queen bed, desk, fridge, drawers and closet space for your clothes, linens, plenty of heat, plenty of light, and high-speed Internet.

Two other people live in the house and share the main bath, but those rooms are at the back of the house and your room is at the front, for privacy.

You share one full bath with tub, shower, and good water pressure. There is another bathroom, just in case. You also have access to a great kitchen, laundry, reading room, backyard, and two patios, as well as your own garden with deck.

This house is in a friendly, quiet neighborhood with an astonishing array of amenities.

A security deposit is required. Timely cleaning up after oneself is required.

Sorry, no pets. Each room is for one non-smoking human only.

Strongly prefer a full time worker or scholar. Visitors to the Bay Area are welcome.

There is reliable on-street parking next to the house. Nearby are BART and buses. We are one BART stop from campus, and it takes me about seven minutes between campus and here by bike.

Here are the answers to some questions I am often asked:
* We have lived here since 1987.
* One of us is an editor and the other cares for pets at their homes. We can't rent to someone who has a pet of her own.
* The editor is a woman and the dog guy is a man.
* We keep things neat, and we clean regularly.
* We've lived here with dozens of graduate students from all over the world. Check out the Testimonials page.
* We are friendly, but not overbearing, and like wordplay. One of us is a smarty-pants. At least one.

Please tell us a bit about yourself:
for example, where you work or study, the dates you would like to stay (more or less), where you're living now, and so forth.

Please read for lots more information, including testimonials from many happy previous visitors.
