Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5) great neighborhood

Beautiful 2br. Berkeley craftsman style home, with large deck and backyard, in one of the most popular neighborhoods in Berkeley. 4 blocks from the scruptious Gourmet ghetto, and the world famous Chez Panisse restaurant; and walking distance to UC Berkeley and all public transportation. Walk to BART which takes you right into San Francisco. Downtown Berkeley has movies, theater, music, and shopping. Bay Area intellectual, political, and artistic cultural exhibits and events abound. The awesome California coast, wine country, Muir woods, are all within a couple of hours drive. There are wonderful hikes and outdoor activities both a short drive away, at the local parks, and berkeley hills, and even the neighborhood streets. BART, the train into San Francisco is less than a mile from the house. Inside is spacious, attractive, and home-like. This is not the kind of place that is only used by renters; We live in it ourselves when it isnt being rented; it is an interesting artistic home that is spacious, and has comfort and warmth. (We have a third bedroom that we can sometimes make available as well. If you use the third bedroom, it will cost $80 more/night, but we are more likely to rent to people who do not need the third bedroom because we prefer to store our things there and then close off that 3rd bedroom,if we can)

About nancy feinstein

We have lived and raised our kids in this house for the last 30+ years. We love the arts, culture, political, and intellectual stimulation of the Bay Area. We share this duplex with our cousins (scientist, avid surfers, and wonderful people). For the last couple of years, we have been doing a lot of commuting to D.C. for work, and thought we'd give some others an opportunity to stay in our wonderful home when we're not in it.

nancy feinstein purchased this house in 1988

What makes this house unique

This house has a wonderful yard, is a few blocks from the world famous Chez Pannise restaurant and the 'Gourmet Ghetto'. Its walking distance to UC Berkeley, all public transportation, including the BART that takes you into wonderful San Francisco. There's theater, movies and shopping in downtown SF, and always plenty to do on Berkeley's campus. Spend a day in wine country, Muir woods, or hanging out at one of our gorgeous beaches on the California coast. All are within 1 1/2 hours drive from the house. Public tennis courts are everywhere in Berkeley, and the famous Edible Schoolyard is 2 blocks away - as is the public swimming pool. There's always plenty to do, or you can just stay put and relax in the warm, cozy house, or out on the deck or backyard if the weather's good.

Very comfortable, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Berkeley at this home it was very comfortable had all the amenities needed and the location was outstanding I didn’t even need to Rent-A-Car I walked or biked everywhere. Nancy and Karen were great hosts they were available if I had any questions or need any information. Before the trip Nancy even provided me with information on where to rent bicycles. Great place to stay I would come back and stay again

Owner's Response: Andrew, it was a pleasure interacting with you. I enjoyed our conversations before you came out here, and while you were here. Your responsiveness to our home and our communications made it great to rent to you. Thanks for leaving everything in wonderful shape. Hope you'll get a chance to come out here again with your whole family next time. Be well, and thanks.

Wonderful home in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

The Gourmet Ghetto neighborhood is a great starting point if your stay in the Bay Area includes Berkeley, the coast and Napa The home is a classic 19teens home with great character. It really feels like you’re staying at your cousins house while they are out of town.

Perfect place for Berkeley Graduations

  • 4 of 5

This place was just what we hoped! There was plenty of room for family to spend quality time together without feeling on top of each other. We had a post-graduation luncheon for 14 people and everyone was comfortable. We were able to meet our daughter's friends in a relaxed environment. The kitchen was fully equiped with everything you could possibly need.

The backyard was fun for the grandchildren: they loved the hammock. The location worked out great - close to Berkeley, near stores and restaurants and we always found parking on the block.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family traveled from Boston for vacation and to tour colleges for our eldest daughter. We were pleasantly surprised with our accommodations. The house was roomy for all 5 of us and centrally located in a great neighborhood making it easy to walk to some of the best restaurants and areas in Berkeley. We took the BART into San Fransisco on several occasions. The house was also easily accessible to the major highways, making our day trips a breeze. We would stay in Berkeley again, and we would recommend this listing to our friends.

Great graduation gathering!

  • 5 of 5

This home was roomy enough that we were able to use this home as our central gathering place for family at our daughter's graduation from Cal. The bedrooms are comfortable, dining table is plenty big, and the backyard is beautiful. The location near the gourmet ghetto made for great dining and takeout.
