Great southwest exposure with 3 bridge views, SF Bay, in a very safe and charming neighborhood in wonderful North Berkeley. Easy walk to Gourmet Ghetto, about 20 min walk to UC campus. Shared bath. Room has a couch and desk as well as bed. WiFi.

The space
Big old Berkeley brown shingle cluttered,messy house, with 2 friendly cats. Room feels like grandma's sewing room, but without the grandma (yet) or any actual sewing getting done. Very casual environment. No smoking, of course, and respect for quiet hours a given. You have a shared bath, and can use second bathroom. if that one's occupied. It's myself and my long-term housemate/tenant; we both work at UC Berkeley. My college-age son is home summers and vacations as well. I've lived in the area all my life, so I'm a good resource for questions about restaurants, arts, things to do, etc. North Berkeley is a wonderful, leafy, safe neighborhood, and the food choices around town are beyond amazing, some of the best anywhere!

I may be able to help with ride to/from BART sometimes if you need it. Antique double-bed with firm modern mattress, sofa could sleep one as well. Towels, sheets furnished. We'd love to introduce you to our great town! Perfect spot for visiting the UC Berkeley campus!

Guest access
Upstairs bedroom, shared bath, only. Unfortunately, because of a few transgressions, I have to stress that the remainder of the house is not a public space. I am happy, however, to put in laundry for you, or even cook something on the stove if I'm around. Street parking 1/2 block away, or 2 hours in front on weekdays, weekends as long as you like.

Other things to note
Again, this is not a hotel. If you're a neat-freak or need luxury and high security is probably not the place for you. But if you want a place to park your stuff and sleep while you explore the area, you'll find it a great spot at a reasonable price. Also, security deposit is listed as $130, but this is not charged unless there has been unreasonable wear or breakage in the room. It makes it look like the place is $85/night! but it's only $55.)

Location

Berkeley, California, United States

North Berkeley is home to the world-famous Gourmet Ghetto, including the iconic start of the new food movement, Chez Panisse. The nearby CheeseBoard is considered tied for best cheese shop in America, and serves a daily vegetarian pizza, and great pastries. The original Peet's coffee is also there. Just up the hill we have the lovely Berkeley Rose Garden and Codornices Park. Campus is also close, with all it has to offer, including the option of daily use at the Rec Sports Facility. Nearby Solano Ave has even more shopping, restaurants, a great bookstore, etc. Full of trees and very eclectic architecture - my house is over 100 years old!

I'm friendly but mature, well-traveled and educated, and make a polite and low-impact houseguest. Sometimes I travel with my college-aged son. Just as with my campsite, I leave a place in better shape than I found it, and I'm accommodating to whatever my hosts need. Easily entertained with a walk, a book, or a movie, I don't need to be directed toward activities, but great restaurant or bookstore recommendations are always welcome.

During your stay
Some interaction possible, including for shopping and eating, but I work multiple jobs, so not always available for leisurely chatting (even though it might happen spontaneously!)
