The home is walking distance to North Berkeley BART, Monterey Market, Espresso Roma Cafe, Lily's Chinese Restaurant, Gioia Pizzeria, Westbrae Biergarten, Berkeley's "Gourmet Ghetto," Albany's Solano Avenue establishments, and Whole Foods. You’ll love the neighborhood setting with nearby parks, and easy access to Bay views and hiking trails in the hills. Experience the convenient location, comfort, and warm, friendly people. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers.

The space

I call this room "The Forest Room," for both the trees outside the window as well as the soothing green interior decor. This private room with queen bed shares no walls with any other bedroom and includes comfortable office furniture for those who have business to conduct on their stay. Most ideal for those who have commitments outside the home during regular business hours.

Great place!! My husband and I stayed for a week and the price was very affordable. It was our first time using airbnb and we were nervous but it was a great experience. Joy was super friendly and so was Gregg. We enjoyed staying there. If you plan on going to the San Francisco (it requires you crossing a bridge) make sure to prepare for the toll. The only thing that we were a little disheartened about was paying the toll and parking meters (in San Francisco roughly 30min away) not in Berkley where this airbnb is. Other than that, there was plenty around and we had a lot of fun. There's a food market 2 minutes away and it's the best! We bought most of our groceries from there and saved on eating out costs. Also it was close by to the Marina and a beautiful walking beach area. We loved it over all :)

Second time staying with Joy and Greg. They are great to talk with, and Joy goes out of her way to make guests feel welcome. Their home is nice, comfortable and in a nice neighborhood - residential and pretty quiet, but a nice walk, or easy Uber to markets, restaurants, and Bart.

Joy was one of the friendly hosts I've ever met! The room was in great condition, very clean, the bed was so comfortable and the sheets super clean. Joy was very accommodating in terms of sharing the kitchen space, bathroom etc and we felt very welcome. Only con about the airbnb was the location. It's a bit off the beaten path but for my purposes (traveling into SF for the last week of my internship) the 10 min walk to Bart was just fine. Would recommend a car if you plan on traveling around.

Dawna Markova’s poem sums up my "life credo": I will not die an unlived life. I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire. I choose to inhabit my days, to allow my living to open me, to make me less afraid, more accessible; to loosen my heart until it becomes a…
