Berkeley House Rental Photos and Description
House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)
Note - fall 2014:
Although the calendar shows lots of availability this fall we are going to rent it out for only 4 more nights in 2014.
Our beautiful home is underutilized. We are a married couple with grown children and two homes, one in Berkeley, the other in Santa Cruz. We go back and forth. Both of us work full time. The wife, Margarita, is a business owner; The husband, Bob, is a physician in practice in Berkeley.
You are most welcome to stay in our home. Usually we have a 1 week minimum. Our 1320 square ft Berkeley home has two bedrooms and one bath. We the owners, Margarita and Bob, have a cottage + studio home in the back of the property and we stay there when we are in Berkeley. The cottage / studio are not attached to the 1320 sq ft house you would be renting but the back of the studio is next to the rear deck of the main house. There is plenty of privacy. The cottage/studio is accessed by a different entrance than the entrance you would use.
Our house is meticulously maintained, clean, airy, and fully equipped. It is located in what is generally acknowledged as one of the most desirable areas of Berkeley, close to wonderful restaurants, shops, and walking streets.
Our place is perfect for visiting scholars, scientists or businesspeople or for tourists who prefer the peace and quiet of this lovely East Bay city. There is easy and fast access to downtown San Francisco via public transportation; bus and BART stations are in easy walking distance from our house.

About Bob Dolgoff and Margarita Nicol
Husband: physician. Wife: businesswoman. We have 5 grown children and 2 grandchildren. Yes, cute! Most of the year we don't need our 1320 sq foot house; we are very happy in our cottage and studio. We'll give you as much privacy as you want but if you want It would also be fun to tell you all about our town and neighborhood. We know you'll enjoy the area and our home.
Bob Dolgoff and Margarita Nicol purchased this house in 2005
Why Bob Dolgoff and Margarita Nicol chose Berkeley
We didn't buy it as a vacation rental. It is our home. You will have full use of the appliances, dishes, etc. and you can even use the staples and spices you find in the pantry and the refrigerator.
What makes this house unique
Great location. Walk to UC Berkeley. Solano Avenue with its shops and restaurants is just 3 blocks away. Express bus to San Francisco is one block away. You can walk to the North Berkeley BART station. If you don't know about the climate in our area let us tell you -- it seldom gets very hot in the summer (almost no one has air conditioning) or too cold in the winter (no frost or snow). Winters can be rainy and cool, it almost never rains all summer long but it can be foggy and cool. Our usual summer weather features fog or clouds in the morning clearing by Noon, then bright sunshine all afternoon, and then fog in the evening. In the summer we can have spells when it is overcast for days at a time. September and October are frequently our hottest months. In the winter it can by drizzly for days at at time or warm and sunny for days at a time or bright sunny and warm for days at a time.
The neighborhood is fabulous. Tree-lined streets, homes with beautiful landscaping, lots of flowers even in the winter. Shopping streets a few blocks away are lined with boutiques, bakeries, restaurants of all kinds, specialty food stores, bookstores, cafes, etc. You'll have fun just walking around.
