About the Property

3 bedrooms 2 bathrooms, Soaring Ceilings and Huge View of San Francisco and Bay

Minimum length is one month.

Upper level has big views of the San Francisco Bay, including the Golden Gate Bridge, the city of SF, and Alcatraz island.

You can see these views when you stand at the front door, when you cook in the kitchen, and when you look out the full-length windows from the dining room tables or while seated on the living room couches.

There is a wonderful and very big wooden deck that attaches to the kitchen and living room. The deck is ideal for watching the sunset, eating, drinking, and talking, especially on warm nights. The house has very high vaulted ceilings in a Tahoe Cabin style. The master bedroom and bathroom are on the main level as well.

There is a formal dining table for 6 (8 with leaf).

The 2nd level has two bedrooms, large high-efficiency laundry machines, and one bathroom with tub/shower.

The downstairs bedrooms are of equal size. One bedroom has queen bed (luxury mattress bought in 2015) and a designer brand sofa bed from 2012.

The other bedroom has a day bed that pulls out to make two twins side-by-side (making the twin day bed become king size).

The house in the the Berkeley hills on the northeast side of UCB campus. Walking distance to Tilden Regional Park, Lawrence National Laboratory (LBNL and MSRI), and the Lawrence Hall of Science. This neighborhood includes walking/hiking trails and a playground for small children. This house is an easy drive to San Francisco, Napa wineries, and San Jose. You can make a day trip to Santa Cruz, Sacramento, Lake Tahoe, or Monterey.

Fast wireless internet is included. There is cable TV with HBO and DVD player. The kitchen has high quality appliances and dishes and cooking supplies.


There are many stairs from the parking to the front door, so it is not the right rental for people who cannot walk up stairs.

Free parking in the driveway fits 2 cars. Street parking is free as well. For public transit, the house is 100ft from the city bus stop which will take you to/from Downtown Berkeley BART station, which connects to SFO airport, OAK airport, and is very short walking distance to UCB campus and all of downtown Berkeley. UC Berkeley and LBNL also offer free shuttle service to students, faculty, and employees from the lab downhill to the rest of UCB campus and downtown.
