Traditional Japanese architecture tucked away in a great Berkeley neighborhood. Peaceful and quiet but an easy walk to UC Berkeley, all the restaurants of the 'Gourmet Ghetto', and the North Berkeley Bart station. There is a great farmer’s market nearby on Thursday afternoons.
Traditional Japanese building with Tatami mats, organic queen size futon, and a 'Ofuro'- a deep and luxurious soaking tub (similar feel to a hot tub). Entering the tub requires agility as it is high and you have to stand on a bench, sit on the edge of the tub, and swing your legs around. If you have any questions about that please ask (and see pictures).
Lots of natural light with five skylights. Older wooden building with a country feel. The woven grass tatami mat floors have a noticeable smell of dry grass which we find to be lovely, but may not be for everyone. Comfortably sleeps 2.
Minimal kitchen with small fridge, tea kettle, small toaster oven, and dishes (other appliances may be available from our house by request). We use fragrance free and non-toxic cleaning materials and provide Dr. Bronners hand soap. There is a fan and an air purifier available for use.
10 minute walk to North Berkeley Bart Station. About 15 minutes to the downtown Berkeley Bart.
15-20 Minutes to the northwest corner of UC Berkeley campus
We are new to VRBO but are sure you will love our very special tea house.
