Printer/scanner can be provided on request. • Bathroom has a bathtub, over-the-tub shower, and original 1920's art deco tiles. • Bedroom has a queen-size chest bed (with storage drawers underneath) and a large walk-in closet. • Lots of closet and cupboard space throughout. • Floors are refinished original hardwood throughout, except in the kitchen and bathroom. • If you do have a car, parking is at the rear of the building. • The front and back entrances of the building, and the interior common hallways on each floor, are equipped with security cameras for your protection. The cameras are on 24 hours a day. (Note: There are NO cameras inside the apartment!). The neighborhood: • Many small coffee and tea houses, bakeries, delicatessens, numerous restaurants, bookstores, boutiques, organic ice cream and specialty food stores within 5-7 minutes’ walk. • A newly renovated Safeway super-store and a Trader Joe's are all within easy walking distance on College Avenue. • Whole Foods is a half mile away at Ashby and Telegraph. • Leave your car behind! Or rent a car on an as-needed basis from nearby ZIP Car or City Car Share locations. • 12 blocks (1.4 miles, 27 minutes' walk) from the UC Berkeley campus. 5 minutes by bus (they run every 10-12 minutes along College Avenue). • 13 minutes' walk to the Rockridge BART station (0.6 miles), less time if you take the bus. • Convenient bus routes along College Avenue to campus and to all 3 Berkeley BART stations • 10 minutes' walk (0.5 miles) to Alta Bates Hospital • Easy and close freeway access CLEANING AND DISINFECTING The apartment will undergo a deep cleaning and disinfection before and after every guest, using the CDC guidelines. Additionally, we have a BioSpray Surface Cleaner and Sanitizer system and will use that in the apartment in addition to the CDC-standard cleaning. You can look up BioSpray, but here’s a quote from their website: “The quick-drying BioSpray D2 removes residual moisture from surfaces and is recommended for use as a sanitizer on food processing equipment, dairy equipment, food utensils, dishes, silverware, glasses, sink tops, countertops, refrigerated storage, and display equipment and other hard nonporous food contact surfaces. Lab calibrated spray-and-shoot technology for more effective coverage, reaching inside even the smallest cracks and crevices, with better results than manual sprayers or wipes.” Also “BioSpray D2 is a combination of isopropyl alcohol and a powerful quaternary ammonium compound.” It is a hospital-grade disinfectant and is “included on EPA list of disinfectants for use against SARS-COV-2 (Search EPA# 73232-1).” Price • Our rate is all-inclusive. We pay the Berkeley business license tax and the rent registration fees, but neither of those are charged to you. The Fine Print • No smoking anywhere in the apartment or the building! (It's prohibited by Berkeley law in multi-family buildings) • Please remove your shoes, or wear soft shoes or slippers inside the apartment. The apartment has hardwood floors, and your downstairs neighbors will appreciate it. • Please, no noisy parties or other loud noise. This is a quiet residential building, and we want to keep it that way! • Please don't run the dishwasher or do laundry after 10 PM. • Sorry, no pets.
