Upscale North Berkeley locale, walking distance to UC Berkeley, art galleries, restaurants and cafes, public transportation to SF, parks, the Bay. Culture, music, theater, recreation. This suite has it's own bathroom and entrance for your privacy.

The space
Our space is cozy and quiet. We live in a split-level house. The Airbnb space is located on the lower level, half a flight down from our kitchen, It has it's own entrance, from the outside, so you can have complete privacy. You will enter through the garage, which used to be my art studio and is now converted into a kitchenette. The bedroom is well-insulated so it stays warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Double-pane windows let in lots of fresh air. The bedroom is stocked with games, cards and books, as well as lots of outlets for your devices. There's a wifi booster in the room. All the bedding, the bed and mattress themselves are new and always freshly laundered when you arrive. You have your own private bathroom with roomy shower. The kitchenette is equipped with a mini fridge and microwave, plates, utensils, glassware, coffee, tea, half and half and guest treats. Please note: ceiling height in bedroom is 6'6", in bathroom is 6'9" and entry room is 8'. The space is street level in the entry room, and partially underground in the bath and bedroom. You are welcome to use the side patio for hanging out outside and enjoying our temperate climate, as well as our large backyard. Motion detector and solar lights will help you find your way to the Airbnb entrance at night. If your stay is five nights or longer, you may use our washing machine and dryer but please check with us first so we can show you how to use them.

Guest access
Your private Airbnb entrance is located on the right side of our house, past the redwood car port. Follow the pebble/flagstone path to the orange door. The key works the top lock - turn key to the left to unlock the door. You don't need to go through our main house to get to your suite and you are welcome to enjoy our backyard when the weather is good. Please arrange with us ahead if you'd like to park in our driveway, which is always available. We have lots of free street parking around our house, but are happy to give you our space if you need it for easier loading and unloading.

Other things to note
Because we live in a quiet neighborhood (we've been here almost 27 years!), we request that you are mindful of our neighbors and do not play loud music or hang out outside at night. No smoking, please.

Location

Berkeley, California, United States

Berkeley is a wonderful city - it's eclectic, full of culture: art, theater, music (including lots of street music), a great place to rent a bike and explore our huge regional park or the coastline along San Francisco Bay. There's hiking nearby, jogging trails as well. We love our coffee, fresh bread, cheeses, artisanal beer and farmers markets. Downtown San Francisco is about forty minutes away via our rapid transit system, BART.

Our home is located in a quiet, tree-lined residential neighborhood near the UC Berkeley Campus. We walk everywhere - downtown, to different shopping districts. We also have plenty of street parking.

We are both Northern California natives and have lived in Berkeley for 27 years. We have two kids in college. We love Northern California - the beauty of the ocean, Bay, forests and parks, the climate, the culture, the ethnic diversity. Susan loves to hike, garden (especially tomatoes), read, cook and learn new things. She enjoys meeting new people and speaks fluent Italian, having lived in Rome for five years when she was in her 20's. She and Fred love international cuisine, red wine and sitting out on their deck relaxing. Fred is a business owner and musician who enjoys getting together with family and friends, going to theater and concert performances and rooting for the Giants! We really enjoy inviting others to stay at our house - guests have come from all over the country and world - as far away as Asia, Europe, Latin America, and as close as Sacramento and all locales up and down California. We learn a lot from our guests and aspire to treat everyone with respect and kindness. It's a treat to have you here and we want you to have the best possible experience in our neighborhood and home. We are true stewards of the idea of offering radical hospitality to others! We have stayed at Airbnb's in Oregon and New York City - it's such an easy, affordable way to travel - oh, and travel is something that we are both passionate about. As hosts we will be happy to meet you and assist you so that you have the best possible stay in Berkeley and the Bay Area. We know San Francisco, the East Bay and Marin county really well and have lots of recommendations of places to visit, especially if this is your first trip to our area. Our safe, self-contained unit is attached to our house on a separate floor, with a separate entrance so you'll have lots of privacy and quiet and can come and go as you like. Berkeley is a true food mecca and there are many great restaurants, bistros and cafes within walking distance. Our house is situated close to UC Berkeley in a quiet, tree-lined residential neighborhood. We are also walking distance to BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit), a metro line that will take you into downtown San Francisco, shops the Ferry Building, museums, beautiful San Francisco Bay, AT&T Park and more.

During your stay
We want you to have all the privacy you'd like on your trip - we will greet you when you arrive and show you where everything is, but after that we won't "bug" you with our presence unless you would like to get to know us. We are always a text or phone call away and will respond immediately to any need/question you might have. We also love sharing our favorite spots to visit, places to eat, advice about how to get around Berkeley and the Bay Area. We both lived in San Francisco for many years so we can also help you plan excursions into the City.
