Additional information about rental rates
- Cleaning Fee $150
- Refundable Damage Deposit $500
- Taxes Not included
We are troubled with the idea of a cleaning fee, but found that we were spending too much time/money keeping our place clean. Given the size of our apartment, the laundry alone can take several hours to wash sheets & towels. We pride ourselves in having a very clean rental. If you should check in and have any trouble, please let us know asap so we can fix the situation.
Owner's cancellation policy:
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.

Our home is located just a touch north of Berkeley and Albany (UCBerkeley Campus, Greek Theatre, Solano Avenue, Telegraph Avenue, Tilden Park). For those inclined it is only a short Bart (or car) ride to all the attractions of San Francisco. If you enjoy biking you will find many opportunities in the area to explore. Although our home is not in Berkeley proper (we used to be, and happily moved), we have found that we actually prefer being just a little outside Berkeley. For our family, the benefit of more open space, more housing space, more parking, and more quiet is worth it. We do not feel at all lost in the suburbs- everything is close by, and so our rental is a uniquely well-located home base in the crazy, crowded, exciting Bay Area. It is likely not the right place for you if you want to be in the very center of things. As long as you know your preferences you will know whether or not this rental is the best one for you and your needs.
Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: We are a busy, loving family of 4 that lives upstairs. Our kids (7 and 10) are often found in the afternoons playing on the court with their friends and the neighbor kids. If you are bringing kids for a family vacation it is likely your kids will be invited into the fun naturally. There are kids of all ages on the cul-de-sac. When kids visiting with their parents (sometimes they have been through long drives across the country) have a good time staying with us it is truly a joy and highlight for us in hosting. Everyone on our court keeps an eye out for each other so the general feeling is one of safety and community. It is a kids first cul-de-sac. We also have 2 exceedingly small rescue dogs and an elderly cat (who will undoubtedly say hello if given the chance).
Why the Owner Chose El Cerrito, CA, USA:
This is a unique opportunity to have a large group or family stay together in a single unit. The three bedrooms and four beds means there is room for everyone. The location makes this unit a hidden gem for anyone with a love for the East Bay or desire to have a serious Bay Area adventure. We keep our home clean and well cared for. Also, because we are in the upstairs unit if something becomes a problem or you would like extra assistance we are right there to assist.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Friendly neighbors, many top local eateries, amazing wine stores (Solano Avenue) and breweries, great foodie groceries everywhere for you to cook up and enjoy on your deck. Lots of light and- drum roll-: Not everything is from IKEA!!! We enjoy decorating and hope that the unit feels unique and special, not just another quickly assembled "layover" stay.
