Bodhi and Hayley bought this home in 2006 with the hope of growing into the home. It is a large and gracious home and until we do grow into the home we decided it would be fun and logical use of the home and our time to offer it up to travelers.
We bought in this area because it has everything from world class dining to world class entertainment. It has all the advantages of a big city but has the feel of a small European Town.
We are 25 minutes to San Francisco, 1 mile to a massive park which has endless miles of hiking and biking trails, Views of the Golden Gate and SF, Lakes, Streams, Fishing, golfing, miniature steam train rides for the kids, a petting zoo and a Merry Go Round.
This property is a 5 minute drive to UC Berkeley. We are a 3 minute drive from Tilden Park where you can find great hiking, picnic areas, a beautiful lake with swimming and a beach.
