Private entrance to a large sunny garden room with private bathroom w/shower. 2 minute walk to public bus to CAL and San Francisco; coffee shops, restaurants, shopping and bars. Quiet neighborhood and space, in a great neighborhood of West Berkeley.

The space

Comfortable Queen size bed in a sunny large room with table (seating for two), mini fridge, TV and water kettle (for coffee and tea). Room has a separate entrance and private bathroom with shower, and is big enough to accommodate a travel crib if guests bring one. Sliding glass door and windows provide plenty of light, with a view of the small garden. Internet access provided. This is a perfect room for the guest and/or traveller who wants privacy.

This room is part of my house, but is private for guests. There is no house access for guests. No smoking please. Access to washing machine may be granted to longer staying guests, or by separate request to the host at her discretion.

Guest access

Guests have access to private room with queen size bed, and private bathroom with a shower. Private room is reached via the side gate of the main house.

Interaction with guests

Host works full time, but will be more than happy to share a glass of wine or cup of tea, and offer suggestions for local restaurants and venues when she is home. Host has lived in the area for 25 years and works as a geologist. Her dog, Pace, lives in the main part of the house ( he loves people).

Other things to note

I will accomodate same day reservations when I can, but it is not always possible because of my work schedule and needed turn around time.

There is no access to the private house or use of a kitchen, but room is conveniently located near many restaurants and coffee shops.

A water kettle is provided for coffee and tea, and a mini-fridge for bringing your own drinks and snacks if desired. TV in the room ( but no cable- sorry!)
Wifi available.

Carrie's place was the perfect location for us and she was a delightful host. We needed to drive to the city and also be in Berkeley to visit kids and grandkids, who live nearby. It was within pleasant walking distance of eateries and the Berkeley Bowl. The self check-in was smooth (note to self: do not misplace the code!!) and we really appreciated the flexibility. The room was large, the bathroom clean, the local tv stations were fine, the wifi worked. All in a safe and quiet neighborhood.

PLEASE READ**: Although Carrie was very nice and quick to respond to any messages, my boyfriend and I received several bites during our 1 night stay. We're not sure if it was from fleas or bed bugs or something, but hopefully it will be resolved before her next visitors arrive. She is very kind and has things prepared for her guests, so I think she will take care of it.

Response from Carrie:
I spend a lot of time making sure the Garden room is clean and welcoming; even air drying my sheets and towels. You are one guest, who stayed one night, and as you can see, not one of my previous guests has ever written a hurtful and untrue review like this - or anything close to it. My cleanliness ratings are high, and many of my guests are repeat guests that stay for a week or more. My bed is clean ( sans any type of bug you were imagining) and comfortable. Think first before you write a review like this again. You could have written me privately with your concern - which would have been the mature thing to do. Your bites could have come from anywhere that night since it was so warm here in Berkeley.

This room was exactly what we needed for the one night we stayed. A comfortable bed in a safe neighborhood within a fair walking distance of downtown.

A World traveler/airline brat who grew up in New York City, and has lived in Italy, Switzerland, and Seattle (Washington State) before putting down 'roots' in Berkeley, California to raise my wonderful daughter. I love all things geology (especially sedimentary processes -ie. Flooding, landslides, etc) and spend my working hours as a geologist for the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SF Water). I studied geology at Hunter College in NYC a long, long time ago!

Non working hours I love singing with my Eastern European Chorus - ZELE, going to plays at Berkeley Rep and OSF in Ashland, travelling, listening to NPR, hanging with friends, cooking, and visiting my family. I volunteer with Berkeley CERT spreading the word about earthquake and emergency preparedness. Love looking at aerial photography on that free website. Don't love cleaning my house or paying the bill for Cal Poly (bring the cost for college down!), but love to read the NY Times, discuss books with my book group and get into the great outdoors when I can. Thank you for helping me pay for my daughter's university bill! I speak a little Italian, Spanish and German...VERY little.
I try to be a dedicated environmentalist, and to leave as small a footprint wherever I go... CONSERVING WATER is #1 on my list. You'll see i hang my clothes on a good old fashioned clothes line to dry!

Love to hear the stories of other travelers!
