Charming craftsman on Berkeley/Oakland border. Five block walk to BART station which is a 20 minute ride to San Francisco or one stop from downtown Berkeley and Cal campus. Walking distance to shops, cafes and restaurants on College avenue in Rockridge neighborhood. You'll have use of the whole house - a quiet bedroom with french doors that open to the deck, a bright kitchen with new appliances and skylights, a bathroom with claw foot tub and separate shower, a big deck and back yard.
Guests have access to the entire house, including parking in driveway, big back deck and backyard. Kids' bedroom is not used for guests unless specifically noted - door to this room is kept closed :)
Interaction with guests
Key is left in a lockbox but I'm available 24 hours a day for questions
Other things to note
We have a very friendly kitty named Diego - he mostly lives outside but loves new people, kids, and other pets. If you like pets he will happily interact with you.
- We are a very laid back family so we don't have many rules, just please be respectful of our home :)
I am a mom to two girls, ages 5 and 9, I've worked in finance for over 20 years. I'm a native Michigander, living in the Bay Area for 16 years. I love California! I spend a lot of time outdoors running, biking, and lifting weights. I'm a former triathlete. I love that I can open my home to people from all over the world and allow them to experience real life in the SF Bay Area for so much less than it would cost to rent a hotel room! I've been hosting for a year now and have had a great experience in virtually all of my interactions with guests. The Airbnb community is wonderful!
