Über dieses Inserat
Enjoy your stay in a friendly home - close to public transportation, UC Berkeley, great shopping, entertainment, and the natural environment. Bright spacious room includes large desk, double bed, lots of storage, and a comfy chair.
Large, sunny room on a quiet tree-lined street. This comfortable room is furnished with a oversize double bed, carpet, desk, comfortable chair, and good lighting for reading. Our home is a historic Berkeley home - built when Berkeley was still an agricultural community. The kitchen is available to you, as is the living room and laundry facilities.
Your hosts live here half the week during the winter months, and are only here now and then during the summer, so you'll enjoy a semi-private stay. We enjoy meeting guests from all over the world - as do our very friendly dog "Moche" and "Sissy, the female, is a bit less friendly but once she gets to know you she's sweet (of course, they are not allowed in your room!)
Our home is located centrally, a 25 minute walk to the UC Berkeley campus, 3 blocks from an excellent green-grocer, 2 blocks from a Latin American "peña" and an Irish pub, and also walking distance to Berkeley's theater district.
We are serviced by BART (the bay area's equivalent to the metro; or the subway) which is a 20 minute ride to downtown San Francisco; a 45 minute ride to the airport. Further afield: The Napa Valley wine country is about 45 minutes by car.
Zugang für Gäste

Interaktion mit Gästen
We truly enjoy having guests stay here, and appreciate friendly easy-going people. We generally have a potluck on Wednesday nights -when our friends join us, and then we watch a movie. You're welcome to join in - or not!
We divide our time between Berkeley and Inverness, and will keep you informed of our schedule.
No smoking (of any substance) is allowed. The shared kitchen is available for breakfasts and lunches, and you're welcome to cook dinner as long as your hosts are not occupying the kitchen. If we are there, you are welcome to join us, for a reasonable fee. We have two dogs, a very gentle one, and a "spirited" one, but when we are not in the area, they will not be at the house, either. Please keep the room tidy and clean, also the shared spaces must be kept clean. No late-night noise, please. You may not keep "hover board" type transport on the premises, due to fire concerns. Also, if you receive mail at our address, you must submit a change of address form with the US postal service when you leave. We will not forward mail.
Wenn du bis 5 Tage vor deiner Reise stornierst, erhältst du eine vollständige Rückerstattung. Wenn du innerhalb von 5 Tagen vor deiner Reise stornierst, ist die erste Nacht nicht erstattungsfähig, aber die Hälfte der Kosten für die übrigen Nächte wird zurückerstattet.

Both Edwin and I love to travel, cook (he's a much better cook than I), and we enjoy theater, music, movies and the out-of-doors. I am a Spanish/English healthcare interpreter and a part-time college professor, (I teach Health Education, and focus on linguistic access to healthcare). Edwin is semi-retired. We live part-time in Berkeley (the home you'll be staying in) and part-time in Inverness CA, a small community near the beautiful Point Reyes National Seashore. At home we speak both English and Spanish, and often have friends join us for dinner. We discovered airbnb when we went to Paris a couple of years ago and stayed in an amazing flat. Since then, we have stayed in several other places - both in the US and in Mexico, and have had wonderful experiences both as guests and as hosts. As guests we will take excellent care of your home, in the same way we wish guests to take care of our home!
