Our beautifully remodeled 3 bedroom/2 Bath Craftsman house has period details and built-ins and is located in a quiet residential neighborhood. We have a sunny kitchen with a dining room over looking our backyard and deck. We are only 5 blocks (10 minutes walking) to BART (the local subway), 1.8 miles to the University of California, Berkeley, and 10 miles to San Francisco. We are just starting to rent our house on HomeAway (VRBO) but we have rented our house on Airbnb for about 3 years and have gained "Superhost" status.
There are 3 bedrooms. Each room has a bed that can fit two people, plus one of the rooms also has a twin bed. Thus, 7 people can sleep comfortably in the bedrooms. Someone could also sleep on the couch that folds down in the living room but that is less ideal.
There is a full kitchen with a gas stove, dishwasher, microwave, washer/dryer, toaster, coffee maker, blender, pots, pans and dishes. The yard is filled with flowers and plants and makes for a enjoyable place to gather with friends and family. You may light a fire in the little chiminea. We have high speed internet (100 mbps) and wifi.
Guests may use the piano and our Sonos sound system. There is a Smart TV with Roku but is no cable. You can our Netflix account. You may also log into your own accounts like Hulu. Just remember to log out of your own accounts before you leave.
The neighborhood is quiet, diverse, funky and friendly. We are less than a mile from the famous Berkeley Bowl grocery store which offers acres of organic produce. There are also coffee shops, restaurants, parks, and the Ashby Stage (our local theater company) within a mile walking distance.
As mentioned we are close to the subway system and with it you can get to downtown Berkeley in 2 minutes or to San Francisco in 20 minutes. There is a bus stop one block away. Uber or Lyft (phone apps) are a way to get cheap taxi rides within 5 minutes. It is a pleasant half-hour walk to downtown Berkeley, located 1.5 miles away. There is easy access to Highway 80 (1.2 miles away) if you want to drive to San Francisco.
There is a driveway that can fit two cars so you do not have to worry about parking on the street. If you have guests or more than 2 cars, you do not need a permit and there are no 2-hour time limits on our street.
