Lovely light-filled quiet retreat set in a garden oasis. Located in the residential south end of Downtown Berkeley, you will be in the ideal location for accessing all of the local Berkeley attractions with an easy commute to San Francisco and the greater Bay Area. More information The space Walk through our gardens to access the guest suite through your own private entrance. An open format living space surrounded by windows looking out into our gardens give the space an open and airy feel. A spacious bedroom is waiting for you in the evenings to relax in. The bathroom has both a bathtub and a shower, for your preference. The kitchen is efficient and fully equipped, with a basic pantry provided. Enjoy a home cooked meal (or some delicious take-out) at the eating bar. A full-size washer and dryer are located off of the kitchen for your convenience. Guest access Our backyard doubles the living area. Enjoy our shared patio with access to a gas grill, our fire pit for evening s'mores, or relax with your morning cup of coffee on our redwood deck. The hammock is perfect for that afternoon nap. Interaction with guests We are available to you! Our small family lives in the front main house. We are happy to assist you in anything you need. Pick our brains for the best places to visit and restaurants to enjoy (all of our friends certainly do). We are Bay Area locals, and have lived in Berkeley for over 12 years, and are proud to show off our neighborhood and town. We are a diverse family who welcomes people of all backgrounds to stay as our guests. Other things to note We have a sweet 12-year-old Boston Terrier named Coconut that has full access to the yard. She's always happy for a scratch behind the ear, but is generally a low key sun bather when she's not working (shop dog). Not a dog fan? No problem. If you ignore her, she'll return the favor.
