My spacious home is perfect for those looking to explore Berkeley! It comfortably fits 4 between the 2 bedrooms, sunny lounging spaces, and newly landscaped yard. Two couches make 2 more sleeping spots. It's a short walk to Ashby BART (>15 mins), the famous Berkeley Bowl, and UC Berkeley.

The space

My spacious home is perfect for those looking to explore Berkeley! It comfortably fits 4 between the 2 bedrooms, sunny lounging spaces, and newly landscaped yard. It's a short walk to Ashby BART, the famous Berkeley Bowl, and UC Berkeley.

This two-story house is ready for families, couples, or friends who are ready to explore everything that Berkeley has to offer. It was built in 1906. The house is about 1,500 SqFt. The home offers many amenities: a full kitchen with high quality cookware (pots, pans, serving utensils and appliances), 2 bedrooms, washer/dryer, a wood-fired stove, cozy beds, a free-standing clawfoot bath tub in the upstairs bathroom, and a modern spa-like downstairs bathroom. The kitchen and separate dining room connect through archways to a sun-room (16x20, 10 windows) that looks onto the deck. The deck (10X12) leads out to a well-loved garden area that has been newly landscaped with native plants — perfect for warm nights and star gazing!

Behind my house is the small business that I run importing produce from Mexico. It is a house-like building in the backyard with 5 happy employees. It is not a business open to the public, so they are the only ones who you might occasionally see walking on and off the property through the back gate. They will NOT intrude your space when you are a guest in my home, but feel free to say hello or ask them questions if you have any. The office is about 50-60 feet away from the house!

Also feel free to use the one space in two car driveway!

This is a very safe neighborhood. The home is just a 10 minute walk to the famous full-service supermarket, Berkeley Bowl. Also nearby is the wonderful Iron Works climbing gym where you will find day rates, shoe rentals, and plenty of friendly locals. Also a 9 block walk away from the UC Berkeley campus, and a number of popular restaurants.

It is a short walk to major bus stops (100 feet) and the Ashby BART station that shuttles passengers all over the Bay Area (12 minutes to Bart). There is free street parking, the only thing to look out for is the street sweeping every first Monday of the month.

We are 2 miles from US 80, 10 minutes walk to Berkeley Bowl and Kirala (one of best Japanese restaurants outside of Japan). Two blocks to Shattuck (major shopping district). Ten minute walk to Telegraph Ave., 20 minutes walk to UCB.

The house was great, tidy and comfortable. It has everything prepared and great location, which made our stay much more convenient. I would love to stay at Paul's again for my next trip to Berkeley!

Paul's house was really cute and the posting represented accurately. Downtown Berkeley was a short walk away with easy access to public transportation. We had a great time.

The house was very charming and spacious, and perfect for 4 of us to stay. Everything we need was provided. Convenient location. Close enough to a BART station and a large grocery store. We enjoyed our stay at this house in Berkeley. Thank you very much!!

Close to Shattuck and gourmet ghetto and close to most of the highways we needed to use. House was clean and well kept. And same as described. Loved the size. Would definitely return if needing more room than just for 2 people.

A very charming, spacious, comfortable house. It was very clean and had everything we needed. Paul even left some breakfast items for us. Location is great and the parking spots on the driveway very convenient. Having two full bathrooms is a great plus in Berkeley. A few minutes drive to the Cal Campus but you can walk if you want to stretch your legs and are not in a hurry (like when you are almost late for the graduation ceremony...) We had a nice chat with one of the neighbors and the folks in the office in the back.
