The space

Adjacent to Wildcat Canyon, a 2400 acre park, our 2 bedroom/1 bath, harmonious retreat nestles within redwoods and Eucalyptus. This sweet sanctuary sidles the cosmopolitan hubbubs of Berkeley, Oakland and San Francisco.

We are a quick ride to Berkeley (10 min.), Oakland (15 min.), San Francisco (30 min.), the redwoods at Muir Woods and Sausalito, Napa and Sonoma’s wine country . We also enjoy the hidden gem town of Pt. Richmond with its plethora of artists, cafes, and easy access to trails on the Bay. If you need public transportation, the El Cerrito del Norte BART station is 7 minutes away.
Our Master bedroom has a California Eastern king bed and french doors that open onto a large yard complete with a trampoline, BBQ, basketball hoop, sandbox, hammock, climbing rope ladder and several lovely places to sip your morning coffee or watch the magnificent sunsets over the Bay.

Our second bedroom has a king size bed with a mattress top that can be separated into two twin sized beds. It also has french doors to the back yard.

Our living/family room allows for much playfulness and connection and ample seating on our sectional where you would be surrounded by high and wide windows allowing ample light and tree views.

We also have a great, queen size blow up mattress (electric - easy to set up in minutes!) This environment lends to a peaceful, easy ambience that whispers: lounge, relax, enjoy.

The full bathroom with a tub is on this floor as well.

The Kitchen table can easily fit six diners and there is extra bar seating for three around the island. Our gas stove, oven, dishwasher and ample fridge will satisfy any chef. We are very fortunate to have a slew of farmer’s markets, organic produce, wines and vittles, ethnic restaurants and delicious, locally roasted coffee at local cafes all within close reach.

You may park in our driveway or on the street, free without restrictions.

Guest access

Guests will have access to the entire home, back yard and its amenities as well as washer and dryer (downstairs). The driveway will be shared with our downstairs tenant who has a completely separate apartment. Guests will not have access to the downstairs apartment.

Interaction with guests

We would love to interact with our guests as much or as little as they would like!
We are the folks from Book A Nook, a relational, compassionate short-term property management company. We love to nurture our guests and provide stellar experiences, which keep our guests returning for more!

The neighbourhood

Since we are across the street from Wildcat Canyon’s Alvarado Park, we are also lucky to be surrounded by hiking, biking and equestrian trails. This lovely spot delights any child or child-at-heart with its rambling brook, rock climbing opportunities, picnic facilities and a great playground.

Getting around

For those who need a little movie action, shopping spree or a bit of dice rolling, Hilltop Theaters and Mall is located 5 minutes away, as does the San Pablo Casino. We are also close to Berkeley’s 4th street shops, the Berkeley and Richmond Marinas, Pt. Isabel and Solano Avenue, where an abundance of boutique stores, galleries, eateries, jewelry stores and dancing spots congregate.

We would be delighted to share our home and its abundance with you.

This place is on the top of my list for my stays in the Bay area. The area was good, the house was awesome and the welcome basket was just the best. Our host was prompt with communications. Our Berkeley girl was more than happy to take the leftover basket goodies back to campus for study snacks and send you a very special thank you.

The house was amazing and the welcome basket made it feel like a 4 star hotel! There were a bunch of toys under the television for kids to play with. The living room was spacious and comfortable. The bathroom show is incredible. The backyard was also a wonderful respite from the city. I can't say enough wonderful things about this house!

Hi! We had a wonderful time in San Francisco and a large part was staying in this delightful house! We enjoyed exploring the backyard, cooking familiar meals, sleeping comfortably, relaxing after a day of sightseeing. They clearly labeled doors and cupboards and also the left a notebook full of information about the house and local places. It is exactly as described and looks like the pictures. Britt and Limor left a basket of goodies that was very welcomed. Great place and I would rent this again!

There was a lovely basket of goodies for our welcome. Offstreet parking can be a little tight, but onstreet is worse. It was nice to pick fresh blackberries and tomatoes from the garden for our meals. There is a proper kettle for boiling water for tea.
