Adorable private apt. Your bedroom has a standard full-sized double bed. The apartment has a fully equipped kitchen; bathroom with a walk-in shower and luxe, Italian tiles; dining/living area with dining table & chairs, comfy reading chair, and storage hutch; walk-in closet with extra blankets, fan, and pillow; private patio. Private, keyed entrance. 1/2 mile south of UC Berkeley.

The space

This apartment is modern, immaculately clean, fully furnished, and nicely decorated in midcentury modern themes. The bed is comfortable with a medium-firm foam mattress and plush down bedding (non-down available by advance request), extra blankets & pillows. All bedding is washed between guests, every time, including duvet cover, decorative pillow covers, and spare blankets. A built-in gas furnace keeps you warm. Window blinds and curtains provide privacy. Three large windows let you take in the sunshine and fresh air.

Pricing explanation: I use a lower daily rate and a higher cleaning fee to create a discount for longer stays: each additional day results in lower per-day total.

Guest access

PARKING Street parking only, free overnight (5 pm - 10 am). A permit is required to park more than 2 hours between 8 am and 7 pm. You can purchase permits from me, as available, for $10 each. Or you can park at the nearby Rockridge BART Station (1.2 miles) for $2/day and take the bus back to the apartment. IMPORTANT: **If you need more than a couple of days' parking passes, you must give your host one week's advance notice.**

Interaction with guests

Dennis or his co-host will meet you for check-in, by advance appointment, to show you where to find what you need and how to operate the furnace, check your ID, and give you the apartment key. Check-in is possible between 4 pm - 9 pm, according to guest and host availability. We are a lot more flexible about the exact time if you contact us at least a week ahead to schedule your preferred check-in time. Your flight must land by 7 pm to check in by the latest possible time (9 pm).

Other things to note

When you request a booking, please confirm that the booking is for you (vs a friend), the number of travelers (infants and toddlers count as people/travelers), and that you read and accept the house rules. Let us know your flight details (airline, airport, arrival time, flight number) & preferred check-in time.

Great studio apartment, walking distance to UC Berkley, 1/2 block off College Ave, 1/2 block from a great coffee shop and a convenience store. Has a small but very usable patio with table and 2 chairs. Functional kitchen and recently remodeled bath with shower. Dining room table worked well as a workstation for me, place has wifi. Great host and co-host, prompt and good communicators. They want you to have a great stay! Would work for 1 or 2 people. Has a separate entrance. You will enjoy it!

Dennis User ProfileDennis is a superhost.

I'm a semi-retired philosophy professor who teaches film studies, publishes academic articles, and presents at academic conferences internationally. I'm also a foodie, a yoga practitioner, and an animal lover, who tries to live a healthy, environmentally friendly lifestyle. Fellow travelers can stay in my clean, uncluttered studio apartment while I'm traveling. My friend and co-host, Amy, handles your check-in. We're pretty hands-off during your stay, but available, if needed. Please respect the environmental supports and health requirements of using my apartment (no toxic products such as bleach, hair dye, scented soaps, paint thinner, etc, inside the apartment).
