About

THE SERENITY ROOM PANDEMIC PROTOCOL Fully vaccinated guests only. You will need to send me a copy of your vaccine card when requesting a reservation. Since I and all guests are vaccinated, we no longer wear masks in the house but continue to do so where mandated when outside of the house. Wash your hands for the minimum 20 seconds as soon as you enter the house and use hand sanitizer. If you agree to and are comfortable with this, then by all means, make a reservation. ````````````````````````````````````````````````````````` SELF CHECK IN THROUGH LOCKED FRONT GATE AND LOCK BOX AT FRONT DOOR. (Instructions will be sent 2 days before your arrival.) Feel right at home during your stay in the San Francisco Bay Area and share a lovingly refurbished 1907 home with me on the Oakland/Berkeley border. The Serenity Room is 13’ 7” x 12’ 3” with a big walk in closet. Furnished with a queen bed, dresser, upholstered glider and desk. I am easy going and have spent many years sharing my home with travelers and housemates so I'm sure you will be very comfortable here. The Serenity Room is one of three bedrooms that I rent out in the house. All the bedrooms are upstairs, with shared bath and a half downstairs. Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) is a short five minute walk away for easy access to UC Berkeley, San Francisco and both Oakland and SFO airports. AC Transit buses are within one block. The Bay Bridge is a 10 minute drive. If you arrive with a car, there is plenty of street parking, but a guest parking permit is required for short term guests. They are $5 per day or $27 for two consecutive weeks Monday through Friday. If you are staying long term, we can discuss securing a residential parking permit for you. UC Berkeley campus is about 2 miles away. There are many amenities within walking distance; post office, the fabulous Berkeley Bowl grocery store, Whole Foods, Sweet Adeline’s Bake Shop, La Pena Cultural Center, Ashby Stage Theater, cafes, the downtown Berkeley arts district, plenty of public transportation, etc. My kitchen is BIG, with two refrigerators, a six foot stainless steel prep table, double oven, six burner stove and two sinks. And a love seat right in the kitchen that makes conversation easy and fun while you cook. Outside I have a spacious front porch and porch swing to relax on and a big deck and spa in the backyard. Lots of plants, birds, squirrels, cats, and the occasional raccoon will keep you entertained. Please have employment, landlord, and personal references available if you would like to complete an application. Move in requires 1st month's rent plus a security deposit of $1600 for stays of more than one month. Stays of up to one month require a $500 security deposit. The security deposit is refundable within 21 days upon completion of lease agreement and move out, with any damage and cleaning fees (usually $65) deducted. HOUSE RULES If you are the last one out of the house, set the alarm and make sure windows and doors are closed and locked. No overnight visitors. Please keep your room and common areas neat and clean. If you cook, wash, dry, and put away your dishes, wipe down the counters, work surfaces, and the stove (especially if you fry foods). Sweep up any food droppings on the floor. Be finished cooking, eating, and cleaning in the kitchen by 9 pm. I provide bed linens and towels but you are responsible for laundering the bed linens. It is expected that you will clean up well after yourself. I require no less that once monthly dusting and vacuuming in your room. Please Conserve Electricity: Turn lights off when you leave a room; turn off the exhaust fan in the bathroom. Water: Don't leave water running when brushing your teeth or washing the dishes and please be mindful when taking showers. Recycle: Instruction on the frig. Hot Tub use: Shower before use. I look forward to meeting you.
