Description

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.

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.

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.

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.

This is a very quiet and peaceful street in an area that is mostly single-family homes built in the 1920s. Two blocks away, you will find a wonderful bakery and coffee shop, a great Mexican restaurant, pizza place, Thai restaurant, and a family-owned liquor store that has been there for three generations. There is a nearby park and greenway that makes a nice place to go walking or running.

If you are driving, it is easy to find parking on the street and there are no fees or time limits. We are about a 10-minute walk to North Berkeley BART station, where you can take a train and be in San Francisco within 35 minutes. To get to downtown Berkeley, it is a 6-minute drive or 20-minute walk. To get to the university, it is an 8-minute drive or 30-minute walk.

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.

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.
