The space

Beginning May 1, 2013, I will be renting a second room in my beautiful Berkeley home on a quiet tree-lined street. This is a home that is filled with sunlight, fine art, and flowers. There is already a listing for a single room with a twin bed which rents for $65 for one person. This is a second larger bedroom with a queen-sized bed which lists for $80 per night. I have just installed a new McCrosky mattress for this bed. These are the top of the line mattresses hand-made in San Francisco. Both bedrooms are across the hall from a recently remodeled bathroom with shower and tub. Fresh designer linens and towels are supplied for each guest. The entire house has been remodeled with gorgeous bathrooms, fresh paint, and decor. Wifi is also available. The Mermaid Garden is perfect for relaxing after a busy day. A light breakfast is included. We are 6 blocks from downtown Berkeley, 8 blocks to UC campus, close to BART, Amtrak, and bus lines. Within walking distance you will find three theaters, three cinemas, and many varied restaurants. I can recommend many activities in Berkeley and San Francisco. If I am available upon your departure, I would be happy to drive you to the nearest BART station.

Barbara's place is beautiful and located close to BART and downtown. The room we stayed in had ample storage and the bed was comfy. We could use all of the facilities in the house but be conscious that it's a shared space.

First, I have to say I was so glad that I made the choice to stay in Barbara's house in the first place. Compared to subleasing a room in an apartment for two months, Barbara's place provides you not only the great convenience and cleaness but also the comfort. Honestly, as a pe…
