I’m a mom in Berkeley and I have an extra room I want to rent out. This private room has the privacy and comfort you need for a getaway! Everything else is in the shared space.

The space

My house is centrally located in Berkeley, just 4 blocks from Downtown Berkeley BART station and 2 blocks from a Trader Joe’s. Even though the house is conveniently located, it is full of charm and history. Some of the history is evident in the building style, the thin walls (which make sound travel), and the trees in the backyard.

Guest access

You have your private bedroom and a shared bathroom, living room, and kitchen. You’ll find everything you need to cook, entertain, and relax among yourselves!

Interaction with guests

I am subletting the other room until December, but you have your privacy in your locked room.

Other things to note

There is a dog park nearby so you may hear some adorable barking when you’re home!

Please no smoking on the property.

There is no parking available on the property, but there is street parking available. Free parking is allowed for two hours between 8:00am and 5:00pm. Parking is monitored from 8:00am to 7:00pm, so you can keep it parked from 5:00pm to 10:00am. Please note that meter maids that mark the tires to see how long a car has been parked in one place, so be careful not to park for more than two hours during the monitored hours.

There is coffee and tea for you to enjoy in the mornings.

Also, please note that this is a no smoking and no fragrances house. Due to some guests being sensitive to smells, please refrain from strong fragrances.

This place is wonderfully located. I enjoyed being near the park, Trader Joe's and loads of restaurants. The room itself is quite large, very comfortable and tastefully furnished. The bathroom is modern and clean. I never met Sonia but she responded quickly to any question via text.

Communication with the host, and check-in and check-out was flawless. A terrific location and value, the room was very comfortable. It is just off the apartment's entry door, and had a sitting area, light from the four large lovely windows on two sides and an excellent bed with nice bedding. There was a small, but very adequate, work desk and adequate Wi-Fi. There's a good closet and table in the sitting area. The lighting was very good. Everything was spotless in my room. It is on the lovely Ohlone Parkway, and the street between the park and the house is intermittently busy at the expected times. This fact and the proximity to the entry door, as well as occasional upstairs neighbor sounds or walking may be an issue for people who live in their own rural residence, but for Urban denizens, or with simple earplugs, it's not an issue. The bathroom was excellent. The kitchen is well equipped and the refrigerator freezer new. It has very nice location relative to the bus system and a pleasent easy walk to either BART station, Downtown or North Berkeley. As I come to Berkeley regularly, I would look forward to being able to stay here again should it be available. Thank you!

Sonias place is an awesome choice for being walking distance to campus and near cafes and restaurants. I walked to and from the BART at night and it was also fine. The host was very flexible and allowed me to leave my bags during the day.

I stayed in Sonia's place for a week. It was clean, nice, and convenient to local shops and restaurants. Nice front bedroom with large bay windows facing a park. Highly recommended!

The room fits the pictures and the descirption very well - beautiful, clean and extremely well located. There are several other apartments in the house and it is indeed not very sound proof, so you might want to talk to your neighbors upstairs. However, this is common for most houses in Berkeley. You would be hard-pressed to find a better place in Berkeley, even at considerably higher prices.

Lovely Stay! It's a nice place. The decoration is beautiful.But the sound insulation is poor. When someone comes back very late, it's really noisy.
