Our beautiful 1912 Craftsman, ideally located in the heart of North Berkeley, welcomes you! We recently built a separate, private apartment at our house, equipped with all the comforts of home and conveniently located near many of Berkeley’s amazing arts and cultural venues, the renowned "Gourmet Ghetto," the UC Berkeley campus and scenic parks.
This spacious, brand new, 800 square foot apartment has its own entrance and opens onto a large private deck and lush backyard garden, offering a true California indoor/outdoor experience. The open floor plan has plenty of room to spread out and is filled with light and gorgeous views of the professionally designed garden.
Thoughtfully furnished spaces include a gourmet kitchen, newly equipped with stove, fridge, dishwasher, microwave, toaster oven, coffeemaker, and more. It is a great space to prepare homemade meals while hanging out with family and friends. Designer bathroom includes a walk-in shower with beautiful artisan tiles. The main bedroom is large, with a new king bed and walk-in closet. The second bedroom has a new king bed, that can also be made into one twin or 2 twin beds (see photos). Included in the apartment is a full washer and dryer. Large open living/dining room with garden views has sectional couch seating for 5, dining table that can accommodate 6 people and a 40 inch screen cable TV. Full wifi access is available.
Shop locally at nearby Monterey Market, Cheeseboard Collective, Masse's Bakery and many other famous Berkeley gastronomic institutions!
In addition to the private apartment and deck, you are welcome to enjoy our back yard garden with seating areas, fountain, and variety of fruit trees.
We want your stay to be as comfortable as possible. We live in the main house and can help with any questions you may have. Once you are settled in, we would like to welcome you and also introduce you to our dog Dexter, whom you may meet in the garden.
Your separate deck is completely private, however our family (including our small, friendly dog, Dexter) also uses the main back yard. While the apartment is on a single level, please note that the main entrance is about 10 new steps down from the street (with a sturdy railing and good lighting). Secondary access is 3 steps plus sloping landings down to the unit (no railing).
We live in a neighborhood that is typically quiet after 11pm. We ask that our guests please respect these quiet hours.
If you would like to invite any additional guests to sleep overnight during your stay, please check in with us first. Please note that per our policy all additional overnight guests beyond 2 people is charged at $25 per person per night. We allow a maximum of 4 guests total in the apartment.
We are long time Berkeley residents and love to explore all the activities, food and nature that the Bay Area region offers. Recently empty nesting, we live with our dog in the quiet North Berkeley neighborhood. As hosts we want you to make yourselves at home. Since we live in the house upstairs, don't hesitate to reach out with any questions.
