Interaction with guests
We have lived in Berkeley for over 30 years and love sharing our knowledge and excitement for this place we love, if you so desire :) We live upstairs and are happy to interact as much or as little as desired. We know a lot about the neighborhood, Berkeley, SF, and the entire Bay Area so feel free to ask us about any questions or suggestions for things to do.
Quiet and peaceful location in Berkeley Hills with easy access to shops, restaurants, cafes, and incredible outdoors opportunities.
Shattuck Ave (Gourmet Ghetto with incredible dining options, grocery stores and cafes) and Solano Ave are both just a 5 min drive - or a slightly longer but more enjoyable walk or bike ride - away.
Tilden Park is just a 3 minute drive further up the hill and has countless hiking and walking trails, bike routes, a swimming lake, picnic areas and tons of children's activities.
Short walk to the Rose Garden, Indian Rock, Live Oak park and other small neighborhood parks. Running, biking and walking out the front door is easy and with endless opportunities all with views of the bay.
Street parking is safe, easy to find and free.

I fell in love with Berkeley ever since I landed here and then called it home. I studied at Cal, I've been living here for 36 years and I've worked in Berkeley and all over the Bay Area during these years.
I love the Bay Area for its natural beauty, diversity and culture. I’m very social and easy going and love sharing my excitement for my home with others. I’m easily accessible and can be a good source of information for you to discover Berkeley, San Francisco, Oakland the greater Bay Area. I have spent lots of time outdoors as well and can share my tips for exploring the natural beauty of Northern California.
I live with my wife and our cat Tenaya.
I'm looking forward to hosting you on your next trip to the Bay Area
