Overview

Berkeley House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

Our handsome ARCHITECT DESIGNED STUDIO (RENTAL SALE - RENTS SEPARATELY FOR $120/night), sleeps four - two in upstairs loft and two in sofa bed on main floor (a single mattress. Aerobed, and Portacrib are also available). Overlooking the shared garden and patio, this stunning and serene STUDIO has a fully outfitted stainless steel/red enamel kitchen, bath with bamboo floors, glass shower with custom tiles, acid-washed copper countertop w/hammered copper sink, and double skylights. French doors and large windows create a light and airy feeling with a southern exposure. The studio is supplied with free WiFi computer hookup, cable television, DVD, and stereo. Bring your cell phone if you require phone service, as there is no telephone in the studio. NOTE: the sleeping loft is open, overlooking main floor with a safety railing, and the leather sofa bed is in the open downstairs area (there are no private 'rooms' that can be closed with the exception of the bath). Contact me for additional pics.

Our wonderful, spacious, 1903 restored, VICTORIAN HOME is centrally located in Berkeley, close to the University of California at Berkeley campus, terrific restaurants, shopping, and cultural opportunities. Additionally, we have a newly rebuilt one bedroom architect designed artist's studio which rents separately (see description above).

THE HOUSE boasts three spacious bedrooms, two and a half baths, light and airy interiors, including a dining room with an enormous Victorian dining table, living room with French doors leading to deck, and a kitchen sitting area that overlooks our rear brick patio and garden. The home is furnished in good taste for comfort and aesthetics. Neither pets nor Smoking is permitted on the property. Enjoy the bountiful plantings of the garden as it blooms into Spring. Our shared small lawn is fun for croquet Bocci, or badminton (provided). The patio has a table with umbrella for outdoor dining or sunbathing, and gas barbecue is also available. The deck has an attractive teak seating arrangement with umbrella for relaxing after a day of activity. (Sleeps 6-7)

Berkeley is rich in world-class restaurants (Chez Panisse, Bay Wolf, and more), the University of California and Berkeley Art Museum, Zellerbach Hall for cultural events, Lawrence Hall of Science, Tilden Park, as well as hiking, biking, lakes, children's activities, and a scenic hour's drive to the vineyards of the Napa/Sonoma Valleys. We are 20 minutes by car or or walk 15 minutes to BART for a 25 minute ride to San Francisco.

The house and studio are available year round. NOTE: These are both NON-SMOKING properties, and there is a THREE NIGHT MINIMUM STAY.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful week. The studio was a perfect

home during my mosaic week. The inspiration of the

lovely garden and the cozy design of the studio fit

perfectly. Thanks for your hospitality.

Warm, artistic setting

  • 5 of 5
Claudia's studio is charming - from the beautiful pottery adorning the shelves to the hammered copper counters in the roomy bathroom. The sleeping loft is cozy and comfortable. Set back from the street, the place is very quiet and peaceful, yet close enough to walk to downtown Berkeley and the BART station. Thank you, Claudia, for a wonderful stay.

Lovely and Soulful

  • 5 of 5
What a quiet, lovely cottage. Everything you need, full kitchen, wonderful loft bed, shower with good pressure and a beautifully crafted bathroom. I also think it's important to add, this loft isn't a college loft. It's beautiful AND the stairs were crafted perfectly to feel truly safe going up and down. I've stayed at a couple of spaces where that was a concern and the loft felt claustrophobic, not the case here. As someone who travels A LOT and stays in many spaces throughout the bay area, I feel blessed to have found this retreat in Berkeley where my soul rests between meetings. And I made a new friend too. What a gift.

Perfect Spot for Soaking Up Berkeley

  • 5 of 5
For starters, this place is better than described. The studio is a new construction, gets great light, and has plenty of room for 2-4 people thanks to a clever layout. It boasts a pretty, private lawn (big enough for badminton) and a courtyard space (with basketball hoop that my son loved) It's located on the west side of Berkeley on a quiet, safe street. A great spot to come home to, and from which to rekindle a love of all that Berkeley and the Bay Area have to offer people-wise, food-wise and nature-wise.

Perfect, lovely home, great owner

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at this studio for two nights. I couldn't find a more accommodating, helpful owner in Claudia. She was super. I was in town because I was throwing a baby shower for my sister and I needed a venue. I wrote to Claudia and asked if we might use the studio for a small, low key party, and I was so overwhelmed by her hospitality. She offered all sorts of help, tables, chairs, the back patio. T he studio itself is well appointed with great light and space, a perfect kitchen, sleeping area, bathroom was beautiful. I would stay again in a heartbeat and would recommend this to anyone. The photos don't do it justice, the location is great, plenty of street parking, close to everything!!
