**NOTE: Jul 22-Aug 19, 2017 the unit will only be avail for weekly or monthly rental**
This is a stand-alone unit attached to our North Berkeley home. Think of it as an in-law but without a kitchen. The bed was upgraded in March 2017.
Usually available only Fri, Sat, and Sun nights, except where otherwise indicated on the calendar. If you plan to check out on Mon, check out will need to be early (9:00am). We usually cannot be flexible on that as we use the unit for other purposes Mon-Fri.
*** NOTE : in response to a Feb 2017 review that the bed was no longer comfortable we have upgraded to a new backsaver mattress. ***
Check in is 4:00 pm on Fridays. If you arrive earlier and have luggage you wish to drop off we can try to accommodate that but the room itself won't be available until 4:00 due to our arrangement with our cleaning service.
You will be able to let yourself in no matter what time of day or night you arrive, as there is a lockbox outside the door to the unit with a key to the room in it.
The room has its own private entrance and is separated from the main house by a soundproofed double wall.
There is a Queen size bed with hypo-allergenic down-alternative comforter and pillows.
*** NOTE *** : in response to a Feb, 2017 review that stated that the bed had become squeaky and uncomfortable we have upgraded to a new, super comfortable backsaver mattress.
You will have your own private bathroom with shower.
Other amenities include high speed wireless internet for your laptop, mini fridge with a small freezer compartment, electric kettle, coffee maker, assortment of tea, & Peets coffee, organic milk, electric heater to supplement central heating iron and ironing board, digital alarm clock, hair dryer.
We use only all natural (usually 7th Generation) cleaning products.
- there is no microwave, toaster oven, or any other way to cook or heat up food (see the next bullet point for exception). Guests are welcome to store and eat food into the room but there are no cooking facilities.
- For longer term stays (a week or more) we can put a microwave in the room upon request.
- in order to maintain cleanliness, we request that shoes be removed in the room. Slippers are provided, or you are welcome to bring your own.
- there is no land-line telephone. AT&T smart phones will have good reception since we have a micro-cell transmitter in the main house . Others will vary in terms of reception depending on your carrier.
- there is no TV, but there is high speed wireless internet connection for your laptop.
- we do not provide breakfast.
- For the benefit of those with animal allergies, no pets of any kind are ever allowed.
We are a young professional family of three who will likely be home in the main part of the house during your stay but you may not even see us since you have your own entrance and own private space.
We are optimally seeking respectful, quiet guests who will appreciate the tranquil space we have created in our rental room. If you're looking forward to late night partying in the unit, or if you are hoping to have a high level of contact with your airbnb hosts, you'll probably find a better match with someone else.
We look forward to hearing from you!

Interaktion mit Gästen
Guest privacy is our priority. Our unit has its own private entrance, and guests have access to the key via a lockbox. We are friendly, open people but do not actively seek out interaction with our guests. Sometimes we are busy during the weekends, or even out of town so we often don't meet our guests at all. Having said that, guests are given our emails and cell phone numbers and are encouraged to contact us with any questions or concerns. Of course we are quite happy to meet you and chat if we cross paths. Its always fun to connect with out guests!

I live in the Berkeley with my husband and 5 year old daughter. I am a psychotherapist, love to travel, dance and eat good food. I am originally from Queens and love to visit New York when I can. My parents still live there and I am a New Yorker by blood and a Californian by soul!
