About the property

1 Bedroom 1 Bathroom Sleeps 2

Our charming one bedroom one bath studio space is completely private and located on the bottom floor of our Berkeley home. We've spared no expense to make this the ideal retreat for business travelers and U.C. Berkeley visitors.

The Space:

This beautifully decorated room is comfortable and very quiet. Features include a California King bed, a cozy reading chair, a desk for those needing to work during their stay, and a flatscreen TV with cable and high speed Internet access. The bedroom also features a mini-fridge, microwave, coffee pot and a tea kettle. While staying with us, you'll have your own private full-bath located next to your room.

Guest Access:

Private separate entrance to bottom floor of home. Plenty of free on street parking.

Interaction with Guests:

We're busy professionals running a business from our home, so you won't see much of us during your stay. We'll be happy to greet you upon your arrival, show you around the space and answer any questions you may have while you're here.

The Neighborhood:

Quiet tree-lined established residential neighborhood on the border of North Berkeley and Albany. Solano Avenue is located one block away. You'll find a grocery store, several banks, a post office, coffee shops, bars and dining options ranging from high-end to grab and go.

Getting Around:

Walking distance to restaurants and shops on Solano Ave. (1 block away). One mile from North Berkeley BART (access to the whole Bay Area). Two miles from Downtown Berkeley and the U.C. Berkley campus. Easy highway access to Downtown Oakland and San Francisco.

Other Things to Note:

While you're living space is separate from the rest of the house, please know that we do have a very sweet cat and dog upstairs (they never go downstairs), but you'll most likely won't encounter them during your stay.

Charming, clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best experiences that I've had since using HomeAway and other services. This one bedroom unit was exactly as advertised, and the owners couldn't be nicer and more considerate. We enjoyed the conveniences that were in our unit, and the directions for TV, WiFi, coffee, space heater, etc... were clear and easy.

While there isn't a full kitchen, there was a microwave and refrigerator that was stocked with cold water and coffee. It made our stay nicer, and it was one of those considerate touches that made this stay special.

We will definitely look to re-book this unit when we're back in the area.

Clean, great location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here while visiting our Cal student. Location is close to shops and easy drive from Cal campus area. Parking on street was easy and we always found a spot in front. Laura was accommodating. Fresh flowers in room. Quiet room even on busy Marin Ave. Clean! Will stay here again.

The Best

  • 5 of 5

For us, this was the best. Great location, excellent neighborhood and ample parking. Main living area was roomy, clean and well appointed. We met our hostess upon arriving and she was most gracious and informative. Bathroom was clean, shower was excellent and wifi worked perfectly. Cable TV included Netflix; what more could I ask for.
