Nice large room with double bed (currently on the floor if that is an issue) in big creative casual house with large sunny garden. Large window in room faces garden. Convenient to SF and UC Berkeley.

The space

Own bedroom and half bath (toilet/sink) in large 2 bdrm house on quiet street. Full bath shared with other guests (sometimes none, sometimes two). Half bath usually just for you though friends visiting do use it sometimes. 15 min walk to subway, 1 block to bus to SF and other destinations, 15 minute bike ride to downtown Berkeley and campus. Bike rental available. Mellow, casual household, devoted to living green, very secluded garden. Shared full bath is newly renovated. We have a friendly cat and a nervous but subsequently friendly/playful dog.

The house has a large comfortable living room, and large kitchen you are welcome to share-though we use the kitchen a lot and it can sometimes be a a bit chaotic in there, and you do have to figure out scheduling if you plan on using it much. The house has a lived-in, creative atmosphere. There is a deck to sun on and grass to lie in.

The neighborhood is historically lower income, though changing with our insane housing market, with mostly single family homes. There is a bio-diesel station on the corner, neighborhood store and farmers market within walking distance. Cafes, are a bit farther, nice cafes and breakfast places about a 15 min walk: Easy Creole, and other bars/cafes at Alcatraz and Adeline. Moxy Beer Garden is just around the corner with good beer and sandwiches/burgers.

There's an amazing, huge re-use/recycled materials store nearby, Urban Ore.

I very much enjoyed staying at Ingrid's and Rebecca's house. They are so ecologically-minded, they gave me a bike to use and encouraged me to save water and line dry my clothes. I really appreciated that! Thanks again for your great hospitality, the lovely dinners and discussions and for making me feel so welcome.

I very much enjoyed staying at Ingrid's place for a week during a transition before finding a permanent accomodation for the fall semester at UC Berkeley. Ingrid and Rebecca are very sweet and helped me finding a place to stay for the next months. They were very warm and friendly throughout my stay. The room, kitchen, bathroom are very spacious, and the place is located about a 10min walk to the BART station or to a grocery store. The cat and dog are really cute and friendly!! I would totally recommend staying here.

I very much enjoyed staying with Ingrid and Rebecca. They were very welcoming and had a lot of interesting storys to tell. The room was spacious and clean, and the bed was big and comfortable. The room also came with lots of storage space. This is also the place to stay if you enjoy the company of pets.

Ingrid was very kind, her place was very fun and a relaxing place to stay. She and Rebecca made me feel at home everyday I was there. So close to BART and a lot of good places and areas there in Berkeley. I cannon recommend them enough.

I just had a very pleasant stay here for a few weeks during a transition phase of moving to Berkeley permanently. Ingrid and Rebecca are very sweet and helped me in many ways (e.g. giving me tips about the city, sharing food/coffee/wine/good conversations!!). They were just very warm and friendly throughout my stay. The room, kitchen, bathroom are very spacious, and the place is located about a 10min walk to the BART station or to a grocery store. The cat and dog are really cute and friendly!! I would totally recommend staying here.

I am 54, live in Berkeley, do textile design and murals and teach sewing. I love gardening, growing food, cooking, dance, singing.

I keep a casual household with lots of people coming and going, musicians practicing, art projects in progress, etc. It's not super neat, but it's colorful and relaxed.
