About this listing

Come visit Berkeley and the Bay Area from a peaceful home base near North Berkeley BART. The guest room features a luxurious mattress from European Sleepworks, desk with high speed wi-fi, monitor with Roku/Netflix access, and closet space.

The space

This is a spacious room (9' x 13') with a very comfortable full-size bed. The entrance to the room is two feet from the front door of the home, so you can easily come and go as you like. The mattress has two different firmnesses--one side is the softest that European Sleepworks offers, and the other is just slightly firmer. So, if you are travelling alone, you can choose which side you like. There is a desk with monitor that you can connect to your laptop or use with the Roku that is in the room, which has Netflix access. There is plenty of room to hang clothing, an iron and ironing board, a full length mirror, and even a small backpack you can borrow for your day trip. This is a quiet street in a very friendly neighborhood.

Guest access

You are welcome to spend time in the comfortable backyard which is often sunny. In the evenings, you are welcome to spend time in the living room/dining area and make full use of the kitchen. Please note that I work full time from home and the living room is my office, so when I am working during the day the living room/dining area will not be available for guests.

Interaction with guests

I am happy to give you advice on things to do in the Bay Area, places to eat, places to exercise, and how to get around.

Other things to note

Please be aware that I do have a cat, you will share the one bathroom with me, and that I work from home full time. Most of the time when I am working I am just sitting quietly at my computer. I generally need to be able to work without a lot of distractions, but I can usually stop for a few moments if you need help with directions or with anything in the house. Occasionally (maybe twice a week) I have meetings by phone and would need to have a greater level of quiet in the house at that time.

Lisa's house is located on a very quiet street in a central part of Berkeley. The room was immaculate and the bed was super comfortable. The shared bath was just 2 steps from our room and was also clean and welcoming. Lisa was very friendly and helpful. Altogether, a great Abnb experience. Top recommendation.

Lisa's home is just a great place while in Berkeley, and mostly, because she is an amazing person that knows how to make you feel well at her home. Her home is super clean and her coffee out of this world. Having the BART close is a plus.

Response from Lisa:

I have lived in the Bay Area since the end of 2000. If you are not familiar with the Bay Area, I will be happy to suggest places for you to visit, whether your interests are in city life or in nature!

I love meditation, yoga, music, art, and food. I teach meditation and travel to meditation retreats several times a year. I have also been self employed for many years creating online training courses, mostly for large corporate clients.
