Indoor/Outdoor living; 15 minute walk downhill to UC Berkeley campus. Centrally located - yet perched on the edge of expansive nature, it is a lovely retreat from the bustle of the city. Enjoy the beautiful garden & stunning view of the SF Bay Area
The home has a fabulous deck (450 sq ft) and one of the most epic and iconic views of the SF Bay Area you could imagine- including the golden gate bridge. There is a large and open kitchen and a large dance and movement area.
This is a magical Berkeley Home on Panoramic Hill. This is a very special earthy retreat like environment located up a "no outlet" road just behind the UC Berkeley stadium and campus.
This suite is very private and quiet, and you would hardly know you are so close to down town Berkeley. There is a beautiful solarium with a double (53") futon, and blackout blinds. Next to that is a large office space with a desk that is situated just off the solarium. There is also a king size bed located outside on the deck when it is not raining or prone to rain. In addition, there is a king size bed in the main space with wonderful views of the East Bay and San Francisco, including the Golden Gate Bridge. All the beds have heating pads on them. All of the beds are romantic and unusual.
This is the upstairs suite of a 2-story house.
There are no shared spaces besides the front door and it has its own keyed entry. There is a studio apartment, and several guest rooms downstairs. The property is shared but not the unit. It is absolutely not ok to have parties or gatherings in this space.
It is a mere 15 minute walk to UC Berkeley. This house is perfect for visiting professors, parents, workshop attendees, or anyone wanting to visit the Bay Area. Transit is located 15 minutes down the hill and BART train is located within a 25 minute walk which takes you to downtown San Francisco in about 30 minutes. Major shopping districts and streets with plenty of restaurants are located within 15 minutes walk. For hikers, a system of gorgeous nature trails are located 5 minutes up the hill.
The home is beautifully decorated in wood with handmade furniture that is a testament to the love I have put into it.

We ask our guests to please stay out of the back yard. We do not count it as part of the rental. The hill is very steep, treacherous, and prone to erosion. It is not safe for public access at this time.
Atención a los huéspedes
This suite is my home. For me to rent it out it means I have left town.
I tend to have a low level of contact with guests as I am a full time single mom and I have probably left town to make my home available to you. The front door has a code which is sent in the House Manual when you book so you can just arrive and come on in.
If you need something the best way to communicate is to send me a message via airbnb.

The road to my home is unlit at night so it can be dark. I recommend having a little light - mostly so you are more visible to cars. The neighborhood is very safe and there are people hiking up and down the hill at all hours of day and night.
Please read the House Rules and House Manual. They contain vital information - including how to get here and how to get in. They have been written to facilitate your smooth arrival and stay - and limit the time I spend on computers answering the same questions over and over again.
They can be found in your Itinerary located in "Your Trips" once you have a confirmed booking with me.
