Overview

Berkeley House Rental Photos and Description

See San Francisco & 3 bridges from indoors or while enjoying the large deck

Upper level has big views of the San Francisco Bay, including the Golden Gate Bridge, the city of SF, and Alcatraz island.

You can see these views when you stand at the front door, when you cook in the kitchen, and when you look out the full-length windows from the dining room tables or while seated on the living room couches.

There is a wonderful and very big wooden deck that attaches to the kitchen and living room. The deck is ideal for watching the sunset, eating, drinking, and talking, especially on warm nights. The house has very high vaulted ceilings in a Tahoe Cabin style.

Besides the big living space and kitchen, on the main level there is a bathroom with shower, and space to sleep 4 people. There is a master bedroom with 1 queen size bed with luxury mattress and premium bedding and the living room has 2 designer couches - one of these folds in to a full-size bed for sleeping.

There is a formal dining table for 6 (8 with leaf) as well as a kitchen table with 4 chairs. Our maximum group dining space is 12, maximum overnight guests is 8. The living room has 2 couches - for additional seating you are provided 4 padded stackable chairs in addition to using the 12 kitchen/dining chairs as needed.

The 2nd level has two bedrooms, large high-efficiency laundry machines, and one bathroom with tub/shower. Each bedroom sleeps 3 comfortably, and they are ideal for children because the rooms are quieter than the main floor of the house for people who go to bed early while some of you are staying up!

One bedroom has a sofa bed (twin) and another sofa bed that pulls apart into 2 separate twin beds or push them together for a king. These are designer brands, bought in 2012.

The other bedroom has a twin size day bed that pulls out to sleep two side-by-side in twin mattresses (makes a king), as well as having an identical sofa bed (twin) as the other room. There is an extra twin mattress you could utilize for a floor sleeper.

Walking distance to Tilden Regional Park, Lawrence National Laboratory, and Lawrence Hall of Science. This neighborhood includes walking/hiking trails and a playground for small children. This house is an easy drive to San Francisco, Napa wineries, the cities of the Bay Area. Sacramento and Tahoe and Monterey are not too far for a day trip.

Wireless internet is included. There is cable TV with HBO and DVD player. The kitchen has high quality appliances and dishes and cooking supplies.

Free parking in the driveway fits 2 cars. Street parking is free as well. We do advise that you rent a car. For public transit, the house is 100ft from the city bus stop which will take you to/from Downtown Berkeley BART station, which connects to SFO airport, OAK airport, and is very short walking distance to UCB campus and all of downtown Berkeley.

For half of the year, this house is home to a family of 5. The rental is fully furnished. All the furniture and appliances are under 3 years old and premium brand names. There are large laundry machines inside. Upon request we can provide a portacrib (Pack-n-play), 2 child-size sleeping bags, and/or a high chair.

There are many stairs from the parking to the front door, so it is not the right rental for people who cannot walk up stairs.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The deck provides a nice space to spend some down time at the end of the day. It is a peaceful neighborhood, there is even a trailhead for Tilden Regional Park just up the block.

The property was well maintained and the listing description was accurate. It was perfect for a big family. Owner was very helpful and caring! We'll be back!

Best Stay in the Bay Area!

  • 5 of 5
Cristine is a great hostess! ...And catered to our every needs! She even brought us over a tv because we had friends and family over to say farewell and well, watch the World Soccer Cup Final! The house is beautiful with an amazing view of the Bay Area! Definitely an unforgettable experience! The property was very clean and very airy and spacey! The balcony is a definite plus to enjoy the view! There are a lot of stairs and the driveway is steep for those who need to know but if your young and a mover... no problem at all! It´s worth the stay and we will definitely be back! Thanks again so much Christine! Saludos!

Great family location

  • 5 of 5
The location of the house was perfect! We had everything we needed for our large group. It was perfect for large meals and spending time together playing games or sitting around and chatting while watching the summer fog in San Francisco. There were plenty of sheets and pillows for everyone. The only thing we were lacking was a pizza pan/stone. But no biggie! The guys were wanting a tv, but it was nice to be without one for a week.

The owners and cleaner were spectacular - very friendly and easy going. The trip couldn't have gone better!

Just be sure to watch the signs for street cleaning. Two in our group got parking tickets. Whoops!

GORGEOUS VIEW! AWESOME FAMILY HOME!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed here 5 nights over Memorial Day weekend. The home was clean and quite lovely with a nice modern kitchen to prepare meals and a gorgeous view of SF Bay from the deck. The furnishings were nice and wifi worked great. The neighborhood is quiet and very close to Tilden Park. The city bus comes right by the house and shopping centers and BART stations are nearby.

We had 10 people stay at the home of which 4 were children and we felt very comfortable. The cousins had so much fun playing games and spending quality time together. The home was equipped with family games in the closet and a few toys downstairs for the kids. It was so nice to be able to have a home to retreat to after a long day of exploring the city.

The owner was easy to reach by phone or email when we had questions.

The house is located on a steep hill, which was fine for my family, but was a little difficult for my elderly aunt and uncle to come visit.

Next time we are in the Bay Area, I hope to stay here again. We had such a great time!

Close to UCB and you will love the views!

  • 5 of 5
I was very impressed with this place. The view was WOW. We walked every day around the little interesting streets and unique houses of the Berkeley Hills, and into Tilden Park. It was truly quiet and peaceful. The kitchen was great for cooking and saved our family a lot of money on eating out. We thought the beds and couches were comfortable and the place was very clean. Christine the owner was easily reached by phone when we had a question on day 1.

Awesome spot

  • 5 of 5
Awesome spot. We really enjoyed our stay in Berkeley. The house was large enough for the 8 of us comfortably, the wifi was great, and the kitchen was generally spacious and had everything we could need. Great to wake up with the views and we enjoyed the neighborhood. Thanks again.

The house was clean and had all the appliances/fixtures you could need to cook. The deck has stunning views of the whole bay! The house had strong wifi, ample towels and toiletries, and tasteful furnishings. We had 2 people in each bedroom and the house did not feel crowded, there was plenty of living area and bathroom space for everybody.

The owner was very helpful and responsive to emails. I would definitely recommend the house and hope it's available the next time our group visits the bay area. Really, we can't say enough good things about our stay. Well worth the price of admission.
