About

Renting for semesters to visiting academic families, a comfortable fully furnished home. Plenty of fresh bedding, a well stocked VEGETARIAN* kitchen (with gas stove, dishwasher, food processor, nutri- bullit (blender) and toaster), and much of what you need to live. Just bring your clothing and personal effects and you are set. Try the upright piano, which so many guests enjoy playing! The neighborhood has a 99% walkability rating, with relatively frequent busses to several places. I provide lockable parking for two bikes. The location, in West Berkeley, close to the Fourth Street shopping area makes an easy aerobic bike ride to downtown or UCB. Weekday, wi-fi busses operate in mornings to San Francisco. From them the view is wonderful. BART (the metro) is .9 miles away (1.45 km.). I provide one “saved” street-parking place. My home has an addition built to the original house. There is very little audio or visual connection between the two. The yard is shared. I rent the original two bedroom home and live on the property in a separate addition, attached by a 5 foot common wall. My home is ideal for semester or two, or shorter rentals. Quite frequently guests are Academic families with small children and sometimes pets. * In India there is a term "Pure Vegetarian" and this indicates that no animals, fish or birds have been in the pots or pans or on the dishes or utensils. I like to keep my home that way. Do what you want when not here, but respect the vegetarian nature of the home. The OED word(s) of last year were Climate Emergency’, and a vegetarian diet is the direction, to survive as a planet. There exists a selection of vegetarian and vegan food prep books in the well stocked kitchen for your perusal.
