Overview

About the property

Spacious, attractive studio:tree/mountain and Bay views, walk to UC Berkeley

If a spacious 400 sq.ft studio, a stone-throw away from UC Berkeley, surrounded by spectacular SF/Bay views is what you have wished, then prepare to be enchanted and delighted. Our Abode is a 15 minute walk to UCB, close to shops, restaurants, parks and a myriad of San Francisco, Napa, Sonoma and the Redwoods’ attractions.

As you enter your sunny, high in the sky, home-away-from-home, your heart might skip a beat, as you take in the views from the floor to ceiling windows. You’ll love the whimsical play of colors, textiles, textures and eclectic decor.

The queen bed will help you slumber comfortably after adventures around town. Naturally, for those who like to sleep way past sunrise, there are light-blocking shades. We have an AC/Heating unit that will keep you cool or cozy depending on Berkeley’s ever-changing climate.

Our TV is equipped to access local channels and Roku applications.

In the sweet, relational living area, you may watch the fog roll in the Bay or enjoy a romantic dinner overlooking the city’s lights.

We have a french press coffee maker and electric kettle, as well as an electric induction cooktop available. We primarily use the oven for reheating food since the oven’s temperature gauge is not as reliable as we would like. Of course, there are dishes, cutlery, a blender, toaster, small refrigerator, spices, oils, teas, coffees, etc.

There is a full bathtub/shower combination. For your comfort, we provide all linens, towels, shampoo, soap and conditioner as well.

Both the University of California and the Graduate Theological Union are within a ten-fifteen minute stroll, and yet well away from the fray of campus noise. Cal Stadium is only a ten-minute walk away. We are fortunate to be near Berkeley’s famous Gourmet Ghetto, a gathering of some of the best restaurants on the West Coast! Then the only difficulty will be in choosing which one!

Ours is a beautiful neighborhood. There is a ‘loop’ that is an easy walk, taking about 20 minutes to traverse by foot. You will see many different and inspired styles of architecture.

Also within blocks of the house are three of Berkeley’s favorite city parks: the Rose Garden (romantic and peaceful), Codornices (perfect for kids), and the hilltop Glendale-La Loma. Head uphill, on foot or by car, to the wonderful and expansive Tilden Park, with miles of hiking trails, a swimming lake, and always a kid favorite, the Little Farm (with goats, cows, chickens and more). Venture down to the nearby Berkeley Art Center, featuring fantastic exhibits of local artists.

Solano Avenue, with its many boutiques, ethnic restaurants, grocery stores, bakeries, and coffee shops, is a quick drive or pleasant walk, and a great place to while away an afternoon.

Getting Around:

Street parking is available or you may use the convenient Berkeley public transportation. The #65 bus, which stops just an eight-minute walk away, runs right down to the Berkeley BART. From BART, the entire Bay Area and both airports are easily accessible.

Good Spot

  • 3 of 5

Good spot. Common area hallway had a horrible smell that carried into the unit.

  • Stayed: July 2017

Owner's Response: Hi Robert (Scott), I'm so sorry and I wish we knew about the smell ( I believe we discovered that it was the toilet and resolved the issue...), which is why we do comfort calls. Had we known about this, we would have resolved it that day. Next time be sure to let us know if anything is amiss. We want you to have a great experience! Take care, Limor and the folks at Book A Nook

We are only a short walk or drive to so many great things! Both the University of California and the Graduate Theological Union are within a ten-fifteen minute stroll, and yet well away from the fray of campus noise. As such, the neighborhood is filled with professors, scientists, artists and writers. Our guests also choose us for location, which is ideal no matter if you’re here to visit a student, teach a summer program, attend an ordination, or catch a Cal game (only ten minutes walk from the stadium!).

A fifteen minute walk downhill takes you to the north side of the campus, which has over twenty restaurants and several coffee shops, including the Brewed Awakening, voted the best cafe to hang out and study in in Berkeley. The European-style cafe, Nefeli, and Yali's Cafe, are also very popular.

A lovely one-mile walk (did we mention Berkeley’s many magical hillside pathways and secret staircases), are all the restaurants of the Gourmet Ghetto, including Chez Panisse, Saul’s Deli, the Cheeseboard, and so many more! Take an afternoon stroll to the Thursday afternoon Farmer’s Market, which has organic produce, as well as a mouth-watering array of dinner options for carry-out (or sit and eat on the sidewalk with the locals).

The Greek Theater and Zellerbach Hall (all the most famous acts come to these two venues) are just a few minutes’ drive, or a 25 minute walk. About the same distance, in downtown Berkeley, is the fabulous Freight & Salvage Coffee House (Home of Traditional Music).

Also within blocks of the house are three of Berkeley’s favorite city parks: the Rose Garden (romantic and peaceful), Cordornices (perfect for kids), and the hilltop Glendale-La Loma. Head uphill, on foot or by car, to the wonderful and expansive Tilden Park, with miles of hiking trails, a swimming lake, and always a kid favorite, the Little Farm (with goats, cows, chickens and more). Venture down to the nearby Berkeley Art Center, featuring fantastic exhibits of local artists.
