You'll notice some of the original details of this comfortable space, and will hopefully share our excitement about some of the new updates to the unit - such as a television, king-sized bed, and fireplace heater. With its own entrance, nice-sized bathroom, and spacious closet, this cozy studio is ready for business or leisure!

Plus, it's close to just about everything you need - UC Berkeley, Downtown Berkeley and BART, the Greek Theater, award-winning restaurants, and views at the Rose Garden.

The space
With a private entrance and bathroom, this studio is en suite to our house, on the ground level. This is important to note, because it is separate to and below our living space and next to our garage. We are respectful, but please know that you'll hear footsteps or voices periodically. Although there is no kitchen, it has a nice kitchenette equipped with a mini-refrigerator (for potential leftovers), microwave oven (for heating said leftovers), and Keurig machine (for coffee lovers/needers).

If you're concerned about working, the table is adjustable height, and serves as your workstation or table. The bathroom is large, with a nice-size shower. The closet is gigantic, where you'll find a tower fan, iron and ironing board, luggage rack, and extra blankets. Whether you're here on business or pleasure, this studio has what you need!

Guest access
You'll have access to the studio, spacious closet, and bathroom. We'll also make our WiFi accessible.

Other things to note
-The Unit: Is below our home, so you may hear footsteps/voices occasionally.

-The Door: We'll send you a code before your stay.

-The Garden: It's our neighbor's yard, and he takes very good care of it. Please do not walk across the yard! The fruit in it also attracts critters - most often deer and squirrels, but there are others in the neighborhood as well.

-The View: That sometimes-steep hill provides us a tremendous view of the Bay, which is even better from the Rose Garden to our north (if you take our street to the right/north, just past where it meets Euclid).

-The Hill: We live on a hill that's steep in places, be careful of your step - especially when coming off of the driveway.

-The Neighborhood: There are great restaurants, Cal Berkeley, the Greek Theater, a beautiful view of the Bay from the Rose Garden, the Downtown BART station, and so much more within a short walking distance. However, we do live on a hill. Getting downtown is pretty easy (but some might consider the return less fun). There's not much we can do about it except enjoy the view!

-The Ants: The beauty of living next to such a nice yard is that ants try to find places warm and damp during the wet season. We do what we can to stop them, but appreciate any notification and patience if they start their march indoors.

-The Parking: Is free, but has a two-hour limit Monday-Friday from 8.00 am-7.00 pm. We know some spots without the limit and may have passes (at cost), so please reach out if you have a vehicle here between 10.00-5.00.

Location

Berkeley, California, United States

We are in the hills of Berkeley, which is important to note. But those hills afford us amazing views of the Bay and the City. Our neighborhood is quiet; just far enough away from the buzz of the streets below to make them walkable, but high enough to enjoy the views. Plus, the neighborhood is filled with homes that take great care of their gardens. All of this makes it very beautiful, throughout the year.

Honestly, we're in a great location - it's about a mile to the Downtown Berkeley and the BART station, a little more than a half-mile from the Greek Theater and the UC Berkeley campus, directly up the hill from the infamous Chez Panisse, original Peet's Coffee, and Cheese Board Pizza, and a half-mile down the hill from the Berkeley Rose Garden for an incredible view of the Bay. We're incredibly lucky to have such a beautiful home, and look forward to sharing it with you!

I arrived in the Bay in 2011 and met my lovely wife later that year. We are parents to three lovely children, all of whom are energetic, engaging, adventurous, fun, beautiful, and clever. I'm originally from Florida, but lived in Arizona for many years - my favorite sports team reflect this. I've also lived in Mexico and Spain. The travel bug bit me in 2006, and I've traveled to about 20 countries (my oldest has already been to three!). When I'm not working on communication approaches and business strategy, you might find me in the kitchen cooking up a delicious concoction or playing with my girls on the playground. My host approach is similar to what I like when I'm a guest: To be as informative as possible and help visitors know what it's like to live in this amazing area. I prefer holes in the wall to fancy restaurants, but I like to know them all. We're pretty active, in general, and being a half-mile walk from one of the Bay's quintessential views (and a playground right across the street) in the Berkeley Rose Garden is mighty helpful.
