Property description

If you wish for a beautifully remodeled 400 sq.ft. 1 bedroom apartment nestled next to a gorgeous, sunny garden, curving brick patio, & towering redwood within a verdant neighborhood of old Berkeley homes & friendly neighbors, then this is the spot.
As you enter your home away from home, you’ll be greeted by a welcome basket with some treats, so prepare yourself to be nurtured. In the Living room, our stone hearth and warm colors, comfy pull-out queen couch and dining nook are just the elements needed for a relaxing, sweet getaway.

Our full-size kitchen is equipped with all the amenities (gas stove, microwave, fridge, etc.) a chef would need to create nourishing, fresh feasts from our local Farmer’s market (10 minute walk Rose/ Shattuck - Thursday afternoons 3-6.)

Our guest guide will detail for you all of the myriad of farmer’s markets, as well as recommended shops, restaurants, cafes, activities, transport options and gems.

In the bedroom, you may luxuriate in the queen bed and soft sheets as you breath in the lemon tree blossoms, Wisteria and Angel trumpet.

Should you venture into the garden, you may meditate on the bench and ponder the Koi fish in the “pond.”

If you get hungry watching the cornucopia of California produce growing all around, you may walk to Mission:Heirloom, our new Paleo restaurant, 5 minutes away, or if you are craving absolutely Non-Paleo vittles, the Cheeseboard with its phenomenal pizza, Cesar’s, a lively tapas bar, 4 star Chez Panisse of the renowned Alice Waters and a plethora of international fare await you in the famed Gourmet Ghetto.

You may opt to walk and explore the Martin Luther King School Edible School Garden, a project that is built into the students’ curriculum (also founded by Alice Waters). When school is not in session, the public pool, running track, and tennis courts are available for use. Three blocks further, you come to the renowned Monterey Market, a veritable souk, with mountains of fruits and vegetables, many that are organic and local. A cheese shop, butcher, and cafe flank the market as well.

Live Oak Park, Cordonices and Tilden Parks offer Bay views, romping grounds for all ages, hiking, biking and equestrian trails and even a long sled (just grab some cardboard!).

A few blocks south is Downtown Berkeley, featuring Berkeley Rep, Freight and Salvage Music House, 4 cinemas and a Benetton listing of international restaurants. The Greek Theater and Zellerbach are also very close and feature amazing entertainment, dance and music.The University is a short stroll east from Downtown.
Guest access:
Guests will have access to the apartment, with its own bathroom and kitchen, as well as laundry facilities and shared garden space.

We are a 5 minute walk to several bus lines. We are 15 minutes from Downtown Berkeley Bart station.

Manager info

About: Limor, the host, from Book A Nook says: We are the folks from Book A Nook, a relational property management outfit. We love to nurture our guests and provide a stellar experience, which is why so many of our guests return! Renee, the owner, says: This Garden Apartment rental supports the work I do in and for our world. As an ecopsychologist, my overarching intention is to amend the divide between humans and wild nature. The main focus of my psychological practice and teaching is to help us evolve and mature as we develop creative and unique responses to our rapidly-changing ecological situation. I am an adjunct teacher at California Institute of Integral Studies, direct the virtual Learning Program of the Sustainable World Coalition, and teach Nonviolent Communication in San Quentin Prison. As one might expect, my home is a temple that honors and celebrates the human-nature relationship. My intention is that it be a healing and wholesome place for humans and local creatures.

Why North Berkeley, Berkeley, CA, USA:
We love how walkable it is. We are on such a quiet street, but are able to reach an abundance of shops, restaurants, entertainment and more within a few minutes.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Calm, beautiful, quiet and sunny right near the hubbub of Berkeley and Bay Area attractions. Close to Napa, Redwoods, Sonoma, Santa Cruz, Silicon Valley, Tahoe.
