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!
