We provide complimentary tea/coffee and toiletries such as shampoo/conditioner/soap and a hair dryer and iron. We work hard to keep the the rooms and common areas very neat and clean. The full size bed is comfortable with a down comforter and clean, comfy linens. The entrance to this room is right inside the home's main entry door, so you don't have to walk deep into our residence to get to your room. We have laundry facilities onsite.
We strive to create a welcoming environment and to uphold a high level of professionalism in our effort to provide a top quality accommodation for your visit. There are 4 other rooms that share this space, although your particular room is private, its just the bathroom and kitchen nook that is shared, otherwise you have total privacy. It is located on the first floor of our home, we reside upstairs. So, it's more of a Hostel experience, which can be a fun social experience, although we've found most people are busy and keep to themselves. We have an xFinity security system that monitors the entire premises.

Interaction with guests

As we are often consumed with our kids and careers, we don't have a lot of interaction with guests but we do provide complete, descriptive self-check in info prior to your arrival. We certainly do try to make the acquaintance of our guests.

Other things to note

The counter-culture, flower power center of the 60s, bohemian Berkeley has evolved into a culinary and cultural travel scene. Shift into low gear and people-watch along quirky Telegraph Avenue while checking out the bookstores and cafes. After strolling through the UC Berkeley campus, the Berkeley Rose Garden and the Downtown Arts District, head into the hills for an outdoor adventure in Tilden Park or cruise down to the waterfront park, where the San Francisco skyline sparkles across the bay.

It's pretty much a cozier version of a hostel, definitely good for low budget travelers. Great location!

Marina and Addy are very friendly, responsive, and well-organized. Their instructions offered a lot of helpful tips for the area. Room B was comfortable and well-supplied, and the location was convenient for getting to BART and UC Berkeley campus (the latter a little bit of a walk, but a pleasant one).

I am an Author. I have a degree in Writing and Education. I am working on my 3rd Novel. I am a native of Maine, yet an adoptee of California. I am a world traveler so I respect the needs of those on the road! Addy

I am a painter and photographer. I work as an artist by hire, meaning, I work to develop a piece of art for individual taste, not to say I don't sneak in a bit of who I am :) I am also a world traveler and therefore I appreciate the comforts and abstractions of one's home. Marina

I am a hands on Dad and globe trotter! I co-own the house and business with Marina and Addy. I live in the upper back unit and available on-sight whenever needed. Ted
