Elegant & bright, our home has 1 master bdrm w/ king bed, 1 bdrm with bunk beds, 2 full bath, living room, dining room, den w/ queen sofa bed, office, & updated kitchen. Lush & peaceful garden. Walking distance to downtown Berkeley, BART and UCB
In our two-storey house, every room is suffused with light (there are 7 skylights!), every room offers a lovely view of our garden (there are cozy window seats that look onto the garden in four rooms); you will find our home to be very welcoming.
The spacious garden has many lovely places for sitting, with five majestic redwood trees rising above. We have a ping-pong table and a basketball net. Two adult bikes and two child-size bikes are also available.
The immediate area offers all sorts of delights (restaurants, cafes, bars, movie theaters, shops, markets, bookstores, etc.). We are walking distance to downtown Berkeley and less than a half a mile from the nearest BART subway station. Our home is situated on a designated bike path street and is just a few blocks from several bus stops. The UC Berkeley campus is a 15-minute walk.
Our kitchen is fully equipped, we offer wifi and cable TV, a washer/dryer, and plenty of closet space. Linens and towels provided. Weekly cleaning service.
Interaction with guests
We will not be present during your stay, but our housecleaner will come regularly. There is a cottage in the back of the property that is occupied by long-term renters.
Other things to note
We have a sweet indoor/outdoor cat, Maisie, who keeps mostly to herself during the day and comes in at night. We would ask you to feed her and refresh her water twice a day. She does not require a litter box!
No pets, please. And no smoking.
We are so pleased to meet you! We are SanSan (age 44), Kai (age 11) and Bo (age 9). Kai and Bo are happy, productive school boys, interested in history, sports, strategy games and drawing all kinds of things. SanSan is a professor at UC Berkeley. We very recently lost Kenneth, devoted father to Kai and Bo and loving husband to SanSan. We have always been adventurers and we honor Kenny by keeping up the tradition. We have lived in China, Taiwan, France, New York City, Chicago, Boston, Los Angeles, and now Berkeley, California! We are making our well-loved and well-cared-for home available to others while we travel.
