Description

The space

This downstairs apartment with a patio and separate entrance includes a spacious bedroom, bath/shower, living room, full kitchen and private washer/dryer. It is the lower part of our home located near Cragmont elementary school in the beautiful and sought-after neighborhood of North Berkeley hills. Perfect for a couple and could accommodate up to two extra people either in the bedroom or living room on an airbed or 4 inch memory foam mattress.

You enter through a private entrance via a large deck overlooking the garden. Both the newly remodeled kitchen and living room open onto the deck with glass sliding doors. The kitchen is fully equipped with fridge, gas range, oven, and microwave. You’ll have no problem cooking and there is plenty of storage for longer stays.

Fast internet is included so you can enjoy the smart TV in your living room with Netflix, Amazon video, or Hulu Plus (using your accounts).

The bathroom is spacious and the shower has great water pressure. Just outside the bathroom you have your own private laundry facilities.

Finally, the large bedroom has plenty of drawers and two large closets to store your belongings, and a super comfortable queen sized bed (we get positive comments on the bed).

All the amenities described above are just for you.

Some small things that may be useful to know you have in the apartment are: hair dryer, shampoo/body wash, coffee maker, toaster, bedding, towels, and iron.

You may arrive while we are at home, or simply let yourself in with a hidden key. Since the apartment is private from the house, we may have as little interaction as you desire.

There is usually plenty of street parking outside the house or very close to it.

My wife and I live upstairs with our toddler. We are out and about for a lot of the day but if as a guests you find our toddler is making too much noise when we're home please let us know and we can play with him elsewhere. We are available to answer your questions about the area or help you find what you need to fully enjoy your stay in Berkeley.

This fabulous location is near UC Berkeley, the Greek Theater, Lawrence Hall of Science, and Tilden State Park (fabulous hiking trails, amazing views, a lake to swim in, and several areas for children to play and explore.) In addition we are minutes from many Berkeley restaurants and boutique shopping (gourmet ghetto and Solano Ave.) There are numerous parks nearby with with tennis courts, basketball hoops, picnic tables, barbeque pits and kids play structures. We are a short drive to San Francisco, Marin County, Napa Valley, and all that the the Bay Area has to offer.

The bus stops a couple minutes walk from the house, and the North Berkeley Bart station is an 8 minute drive away. It is also a 30 minute walk to UCB. We have a bicycle you can borrow during your stay at no extra cost. It is a beautiful area for walking or cycling (the nearby Grizzly peak is particularly popular with cyclists). Having said that a car is very useful (most folks would not want to grocery shop on a bicycle!) The house is a 26 minute drive to San Francisco (without traffic). During times of traffic Bart is a great option.

Loved the stay here. We had our own car which is a must in this neighborhood and there was always a parking spot available. The kitchen had all equipment necessary to cook light meals and breakfast. The porch has evening sun which is great for relaxing. Martina was very helpful making us feel welcome and had a lot of good advise for things to do in SF. We choose to stay one night extra because we enjoyed our stay so much. Communication was perfect with quick replies. We can definitely recommend staying here.

Martina's place is well located at a peaceful neighborhood yet not too far from shops and restaurants. It offers a wonderful deck for relaxing in warm days. The apartment is spacious and very well equipped with a full kitchen and also few amenities like coffee, water, milk were already in place upon arrival. Martina is very responsive and her written instructions to guests thorough and clear. Excellent choice for the demanding traveler, I would be glad to go back anytime.

This is a spacious, lovely, remarkably well-equipped one-bedroom apartment in the beautiful Berkeley hills. Grand bay vistas and a walk (for the hearty), city buses, or a quick drive to beautiful Tilden park trails and to the restaurant and shopping areas of North Berkeley and Solano Ave. The patio will be a comfortable and scenic spot in most seasons. Kind, responsive hosts. We'll go back.
