Description

The space

A Huge, LOVELY Room is yours in a beautifully restored 1907 craftsman home. We invite visiting academics, guest in-laws, or people attending workshops. We offer a temporary living space with all amenities, a more than pleasant home environment and a central location. The Rockridge/Elmwood neighborhood is very popular. We're about 2 1/2 blocks from Rockridge BART and you can walk to CCAC or walk to UC Berkeley. A "walk score" of 92, a walker's paradise.
We welcome you to a very bright and LARGE (20x15) upstairs room. You will have a private bath/shower. The room is furnished with a comfortable bed with down comforter, Persian rugs, a large work table and a pro wireless internet connection. There is a dressing table and a large closet.
We're glad to provide linens. There is a privacy patio and you have (limited) use of the kitchen. The common areas include a lovely living room and beautifully appointed dining room and a garden.
Please let me know a bit about yourself, why you need temporary housing

The neighbourhood

Best neighborhood in the east bay. It's an easy walk to great restaurants, (wood tavern is right around the corner, but make a reservation or sit at the bar) Check out yelp for what's delicious around here. We also have a 24 hour Safeway (again...right around the corner). You won't want to miss Tara Ice Cream or Smitten...just a block or two down College Avenue.

I stayed here two weeks to attend a course at Berkeley University. Great host. Both Nancy and Michael are very nice people. I enjoyed talking to Michael. Location was very convenient to University. It was roughly 30minits walk or 5 mints by bus at the bus-stop around the corner. There are plenty of shops and restaurants close by. I had some of my friends stay in hotels. They were expensive. But this place offered me twice as much space and half the price of hotels. Lot of amenities as hot iron, washing and dryer etc was available. (Note: As clearly mentioned in the advertisement, the bathroom is downstairs. Had to go down every time to use it. But, considering the value for money, I wouldn't complain about it though. ) Would definitely recommend this place. Enjoy your stay at Nancy and Michael´s.

This is my second time staying with Nancy & Michael. Everything at their beautiful home was exactly as described with some extra amenities to make your stay even more perfect. They are a wonderful couple and welcomed my Husband and myself into their home personally upon mour early arrival. The neighborhood is one of Oaklands best so your close to great restaurants, coffee, bakeries and Bart is is few minutes walk. Waking up to the sound of the birds is delightful. I hope to stay with them again.

This is a fantastic place to stay for such a reasonable rate. The room is very spacious and comfortable, and the bathroom was very nice too. Neighborhood was great - walking distance to BART and many amenities close by (restaurants, bars, grocery stores, etc etc). They have birds that make all sorts of fun sounds and it makes the tranquil backyard feel somewhat exotic with the large foliage.

I was very lucky to stay in this lovely and spacious room, in a beautiful and warmly decorated home, in a fantastic neighborhood with excellent restaurants and shopping all within easy walking distance. But most importantly, I was lucky to experience the extraordinary kindness, hospitality, and friendship of the owners, Nancy and Michael. They are wonderful people. I feel genuinely privileged to have met them, and to have met their beautiful and intelligent parrots. In short, if you are lucky enough to stay here, you will not regret it.

The room is charming. This was a bright, airy, pleasant room in a beautiful craftsman home. It is quintessential Berkeley/Oakland. We were impressed by how clean and tidy the room and bathroom were. The surrounding area, within a block, is, for us, what we love most about the area. We have always enjoyed College Ave. and this is in the heart of this gourmet neighborhood. The common areas of the home are very peasant and warm. We really enjoyed our stay.

My mother stayed here while she was visiting me. The check in was smooth thanks to Nancy being in contact via text. Michael was warm and welcoming, and my mom had a pleasant stay.
