O Espaço

Welcome to my home...

This cozy, quiet, delightful, sun-drenched, furnished room with hardwood floors and spectacular views of San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge and Bay Bridge is located on the second floor overlooking the big backyard in a gorgeous, spacious, peaceful house in the Berkeley Hills. It also overlooks north Berkeley's exclusive and beautiful tree-lined "Gourmet Ghetto" neighborhood, within easy walking distance to downtown Berkeley, just 4 blocks to the University of California campus, and a quick 20-minute drive to downtown San Francisco. The Berkeley Hills is the safest and most affluent neighborhood in Berkeley, where the average household income is ov(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) per year, compared to an average income of just $57,000 per year in the Gourmet Ghetto. Come to the Berkeley Hills--the best neighborhood in Berkeley!

This adorable smaller room (ideal for one person, but can accommodate two) is perfect if you need a modest, private, restful place to sleep, rest, and study, and want to stay in a wonderful home in one of Berkeley's finest, safest neighborhoods. And you receive the added bonus of breathtaking, panoramic, scenic bay views looking out of your own large, private windows!

The room includes a very comfortable and attractive full-size bed with drawers beneath it, spacious desk with chair, and wireless internet for all of your working/studying needs.

The house is within easy walking distance of the famous Berkeley Rose Garden, a vast array of wonderful restaurants (including world-renowned Chez Panisse; the very popular Cheese Board pizzeria; Asian, European, Indian, Mexican, Middle Eastern and other international cuisine; delicatessens; cafes and coffee shops), grocery shopping, the Berkeley Farmer's Market, banking, post office...and more!

Downtown Berkeley is an easy 10-minute walk, and just several minutes by car or bicycle. Public transportation is convenient and abundant, with Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) stations and AC Transit bus lines nearby.

You have convenient access to two shared full bathrooms and one shared half-bathroom. You also receive an off-street space in the driveway for your parking convenience.

The room and house offer a quiet, safe, secure place for studying, visiting friends and/or touring.

The house features wireless internet, full kitchen privileges, living room, laundry, grand piano, and a large, serene rear deck with scenic bay views that also overlook the big backyard with its lush avocado and lemon trees.

All guests are welcome to help themselves to sheets, pillow cases, towels, etc. that are located in the linen closet next to the upstairs bathroom. Just put the dirty linen, towels, etc. in the dirty clothes hamper next to the washing machine downstairs when you change your bedding and/or change your towels. (Please try not to overload the washer and dryer.)

There are spectacular views of the San Francisco Bay Bridge and the Golden Gate Bridge from this property. And the Educator/Teacher neighbors are very friendly and nice!

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

Thank you for your interest. I look forward to your visit!

The house is clean and Gregory was very nice and accommodating. Pastries and breakfast foods were offered. The room was on the smaller side, just enough space for a bed, desk and chair. Perfect for a short stay. Very nice view of the the bay!

The host is great. He kept us informed and made sure we were accommodated while he was not at home. The location is good, on the hill and close to UCBerkeley. The view from the window is great as illustrated. We have 3 luggages so the room seemed not spacial but if we traveled with fewer luggages, the experience could be even better. Thanks!

The room was really tiny. Luckily the bed was big enough to fit two people comfortably but it took the space of the whole room and we could barely fit our one suitcase in. The restrooms downstairs were tiny too but the bigger ones upstairs were occupied nearly all the time. The minimal breakfast was very nice. Greg ajso offered a lot of advice for things to do incthe area.

The house was warm and comfortable. The room that I rented was quite a tiny room. But tiny doesn't mean it felt cramped or anything. It was small, but bright. And like it's namesake, absolutely cozy. The hosts were kind, and communicated effectively. Even when we checked in unannounced, Greg was right there unlocking the front door for us and giving us the grand tour. It was lovely, my significant other and I felt home.

The location of the house and view from the room are the best parts about this listing. While most of the description technically matches what we found, the house was actually being rented by all long-term renters, mostly students, and the house was set up to cater to that type of guest rather than short-term. We felt like we were in a hostel type of situation (in a house) rather than an Airbnb - which could have been fine if we had been aware of that in advance. Every room and free space in the house was divided up for different renters, including the majority of the living room. There is access to the piano as described but immediately behind it is a screen separating the living space for those downstairs renters. Also, the room itself has been updated to a double bed to fit two people, but there is literally barely enough room to turn around in the room with that size of a bed and the desk and side table. The photos reflect a twin bed and shows a dresser in the room, but there is no dresser (yes there are drawers underneath the bed). There is one full bathroom upstairs that is shared with all the other renters, and a tiny half bath downstairs. I never saw or heard of a second full bathroom as described in the listing. There is also no parking space available. Greg, Joyce's son, is very nice and helpful, and we enjoyed talking with him. The view is spectacular, and the neighborhood is one of the best in Berkeley.

Appropriate place for the price. It was a very hot day when I was there (hottest day on record in SF apparently), and they provided me with a fan immediately after I requested it.
