LARGE FAMILY-FRIENDLY VACATION HOME NEAR UC BERKELEY

Berkeley House Rental Photos and Description

Gorgeous 5 Bedroom, 2 Bath Home, Sleeps up to 12, Close To Campus

Rent this tastefully furnished and beautifully appointed, large 2-story 1908 Craftsman vacation home by the night or by the week. Recently restored and upgraded, decorated with a mix of antiques and artisan furnishings, and outfitted with high quality bedding, this home feels more like an upscale historic inn than a typical vacation rental.

This house has a great location just 10 miles from downtown San Francisco, within a half mile of the University of California, Berkeley, and just steps to nearby shopping, dining, and recreational opportunities. Literally right around the corner you'll find delightful shops, restaurants, and grassy parks. This is a perfect place for families visiting their Cal students, professional staff attending conferences, and families on vacation.

We provide high quality, down bedding, plush towels, free wi-fi, nationwide phone calling, and full house privileges (kitchen access, comfy living room, wrap-around deck, pretty backyard).

With great public transportation, Zip Cars nearby, and easy walks to amenities, you don't need a car. But if you have one, we provide one off-street parking spot with the rental, and we can sell you one street parking pass per day. Street parking is plentiful and free overnight and for 2-hour increments between 10 pm and 5 pm. Ask me about nearby parking garages and BART parking for additional cars.

*** EVENTS ***

A family dinner, brunch, or outdoor BBQ is a great use of this home. But if your group is looking for a place to let go, get loud and party, or treat the house like an event hall with too many visitors, please choose another vacation rental. This home is located in a quiet, family neighborhood with school-aged children living next door and limited parking, and we're conscientious about being good neighbors. The two bathrooms cannot accommodate large gatherings. Therefore, we have an upper limit of 20 people on the property at one time. We also have a special rental agreement addendum for outside visitors which must be added in order to host visitors at the house. The owner lives nearby enough to know and intervene if a renter decides to ignore this restriction.

*** AMENITIES ***

- A cozy living room with cable TV and radio, comfortable seating, travel books, tourist guides, maps, magazines, games, and the Sunday San Francisco Chronicle.

- A spacious, clean dining room, with a large dining table that seats 12 people (bistro tables can be added to seat a few more).

- A well-organized, clean, fully equipped chefs kitchen with microwave, 6-burner oven/stove, large fridge, stainless steel pots and pans, utensils, serving dishes, wine glasses/corkscrew, a breadmaker, a blender, a coffee grinder, a large electric roasting pot, and recycling/composting bins.

- A lush, green, private yard with teak outdoor furniture.

- An airy front porch with seating and tables where you can take your breakfast or enjoy a quiet glass of wine in the ambiance of this mixed student/family neighborhood.

- Two bathrooms with tub & shower, privacy screen (for multiple users), hair dryer, storage baskets for your things, plenty of plush bath towels and hand towels. Color-coded towels, lots of storage bins and closet space, and makeup mirrors in your room make bathroom sharing easy.

*** CHILDREN ***

We supply families with a Pack N Play, a basket of plushy toys, children's books, board games, cards, outlet covers, table corner bumpers, bed-wetting pads, and the premiere cable subscription which includes movie channels. We also have picnic blankets and beach towels you may use for your outings, perhaps to the large, grassy park just 2 blocks away. The spacious backyard is surrounded by a high privacy fence with gate latches, providing plenty of space for kids to run off their excess energy. HOWEVER, we expect families to keep the children's (and adult children's) running, wrestling, and play-fighting outdoors. This house was carefully restored, furnished with beautiful antiques, and outfitted with high quality bedding and decor, which is damaged by indoor rough-housing. In addition, the wood floors and wood stairs carry sound to the attached caretaker's apartment, so letting kids run wild indoors here is too disruptive. Please consider both the supports/advantages and the limits before booking this rental.

*** ROOMS ***

All of the rooms are super clean and absolutely gorgeous, with comfortable and interesting high quality furnishings in matching color schemes, and completely uncluttered. Some rooms can accommodate more than two (with our portable cots/futon chairs) and one of our rooms accommodates up to 6 guests.

Bedroom #1 - THE WILDCAT CANYON ROOM

17 ft x15 1/2 ft (263 square feet)

This is the largest room, with a king sized bed (sleeps 2), a futon sofa (sleeps 2), a twin futon, a chair futon, a sitting/social area, and a large, walk-in closet converted to a small bedroom. All bedding is new, with goose down and feather pillows and comforters, pretty duvet covers and bedspreads, and high quality cotton sheets. You'll have your own iron and ironing board, a hamper or laundry basket, and extra blankets and throws. Large windows on two walls flood this room in natural light, which you can filter with the sheers or block with the curtains.

If you're traveling with children, the huge closet of the Wildcat Canyon Room, which we call 'The Little Farm,' is equipped with small futons which can sleep two children. The Little Farm is named after a small teaching farm which is part of a nature education center at Tilden Regional Park, kids can pet the animals, travel on a miniature steam railway, and take a ride on the antique merry-go-round.

The room's namesake, Wildcat Canyon, is a valley just east of the Berkeley Hills where visitors love to go hike and picnic along Jewel Lake and Lake Anza. Wildcat Canyon was named for the mountain lions which used to be fairly common in the area.

Bedroom #2 - THE MUIR WOODS ROOM

14 1/2 ft x 12 1/2 ft (181 square feet)

This is a large room with a comfortable queen-sized bed, a chair futon that can also serve as a sofa (opened and with back pillows against a wall), a desk and chair, a reading chair, a dresser for your clothes, end tables and lamps, a closet with hangers and hamper, your own iron and ironing board, and a small space heater plus extra blankets for those cool nights.

The Muir Woods Room pays homage to Muir Woods National Monument, the cathedral of redwoods located 25 miles west of Berkeley, which was established in 1908 when President Roosevelt signed legislation to protect an old-growth coast redwood forest from destruction.

Bedroom #3 - THE ROSE GARDEN ROOM

13 ft x 10 ft (130 square feet)

This pretty room is furnished with a gorgeous and comfortable queen-sized bed (sleeps 2), a reading chair, a dresser for clothes, end tables and lamps, a closet with hangers and hamper, your own iron and ironing board, and extra blankets plus a small space heater for cool nights.

Named after the Berkeley Rose Gardens, it features floral rose decor and antique wooden dressers with hand-painted roses.

Bedroom #4 - THE BAYSHORE ROOM

21 ft x 10 ft (210 square feet)

This bright, airy room is a sunroom with wrap-around windows, a comfortable queen sized bed (sleeps 2), a teak cabinet with drawers for your stuff which opens to become a desk, a teak chair, end tables and lamps, a closet with hangers and hamper, your own iron and ironing board, and a small space heater plus extra blankets for cool nights.

This room is an homage to the bay area's coastal environments, from the bay shores at the nearby Berkeley Marina to the crashing waves of the Pacific Ocean against the rocky shores along Highway 1.

Bedroom #5 - THE ANGEL ISLAND ROOM

7 ft x 10 ft (70 square feet)

This tiny room is big enough for just one person. It has a twin bed, an antique secretary desk, a chair, and a small teak hutch that can also open out into a desk. Brand new down and feather pillows and comforters, Egyptian cotton sheets, and cozy coverlets offer a downy soft respite at the end of a long day.

The room is named after Angel Island State Park, a 1.2 square mile island that accommodates over a hundred-thousand visitors annually from all over the world.

CLEAN AND GREEN

We provide green living supports (recycling, composting, chemical-free bath products, etc.). Guests clean up after themselves after meals and other activities unless you add optional maid service. The house is deep-cleaned between guests, and once per week for extended stays (including linen/towel service). Cleaning products are chemical-free and unscented (Seventh Generation and Dr. Bronners), so you'll smell only the fresh air.

LOCATION/NEIGHBORHOOD

The house is located approximately 1/2 mile south of University of California, Berkeley; just a few blocks from the popular Telegraph Ave, College Ave, Claremont Ave shops and restaurants; and 10 miles from downtown San Francisco. Public transportation, walkable shops and restaurants, and Zipcars are abundant nearby.

OPTIONAL SERVICES

Some of my reviews mention breakfast. Please be aware that breakfast is not automatically provided, but can be added for an additional fee. Other optional services and supports (when available/possible and by advance arrangement) include maid service, linen service, laundry service, bicycle rentals, camping gear rentals, beach gear, picnic/lunch baskets, gift baskets or flowers for special occasions, and airport pickups. We need at least a week's notice to provide these optional services.

BUDGET OPTION

Because I've received numerous requests from budget travelers for discounts, you have the option to rent some of the rooms and not the entire house, or the bedrooms/bathrooms only (no kitchen, dining room, or living room) at a discount. There may be other discounts, as well. Feel free to ask!

I'm a writer and public relations professional who moved to Berkeley in 2010 to enjoy the beautiful natural setting, abundance of cultural opportunities, and open culture. In my downtime, I live a quiet, low-key, healthy lifestyle, and relish the simple pleasures. I'm a bit of a foodie, enjoying foods from all over the world, especially healthy, organic foods.

Amy Belanger purchased this house in 2012

Berkeley offers the quintessential 'good life.' Berkeley is just across the bay from San Francisco, so we have easy access to its cultural opportunities, festivals, and other advantages, while enjoying a break from the noise, traffic, and crowding of the city. With most every kind of natural area (parks, coastlines, redwood forests, mountains, and even high desert) within a short walk, train ride, or drive, there's no place better to experience the great outdoors. Many Berkeley neighborhoods have the charm, safety, and ease of access of a small town, while also bringing the benefits of a major metropolitan area. This neighborhood (Elmwood) is one of them.

This property fulfilled my quest for the perfect house in which to host travelers seeking a unique, beautiful, and family-friendly stay during their Bay Area visits. This house stood out to me for its gorgeously restored Craftsman architecture and interior design features, its large and beautifully modernized kitchen and bathrooms, its historic significance (built in 1908 in the Julia Morgan style), the opportunities it provided to furnish and decorate for a sense of both home and luxury, and its location close to UC Berkeley and the Elmwood shopping and dining district. I've created here a unique, old-world inn feeling.

I fell in love with the:

- Huge, plate glass window in the living room which overlooks the garden, letting in lots of natural light and lush, green views.

- The lush gardens and sitting areas to enjoy the sun, read alone, or socialize with friends.

- Beautiful, hardwood floors and natural wood elements throughout.

- Big, bright windows throughout fill the home with natural light.

- Modernized kitchen and bathrooms with contemporary lighting, sinks, commodes, and showers, and a deep, resurfaced antique clawfoot tub, is the perfect merging of the modern and the historic.

- Inset lighting, most on dimmers, which allows you to create the ambiance you like best: soft and romantic or bright and alive.

- Wide hallways which provide a spacious, open, airy feel as you walk through the house.

THIS IS A WONDERFUL PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
My company hosted its launch party and retreat at Derby Creek Guesthouse and we couldn't have been happier with the accommodations. This is a first class vacation rental, far and away better appointed and more luxuriously comfortable than any vacation rental I've used in the past. The house is extraordinary: a fully restored Craftsman with the highest quality contemporary upgrades in both the kitchen and its large, immaculate bathrooms. The living areas were spacious enough for our 10-person meetings and our evening banquet and late morning brunch. Amy arranged catering for us by two local chefs who were trained in natural cooking (per our request) and the meals they served were top notch (and affordable)! The rooms were gorgeously decorated in nature themes with antiques suited to the era the house was built (early 1900's). The beds were great: firm, but with memory foam toppers, down bedding, and plenty of extra blankets. Every room has a desk, strong wi-fi, and optional wired internet, which is helpful for large file downloads. The neighborhood is peaceful but super convenient: bus stop a block away, restaurants right around the corner, and downtown Berkeley and the Cal campus just a half mile away. We had the place to ourselves, but Amy was quick to return a call to answer any questions we had or help with anything
we needed. Really, we can't say enough good things about our stay. Well worth the price of admission. We'll be back.

PRIVATE YET PROFESSIONAL & ECO-FRIENDLY STAY!

Private yet professional & eco-friendly stay!
  • 5 of 5
Amy was an exemplary host, and Homestay By the Bay was exactly what our non-profit was in need of for our recent group retreat. Amy was able to host the 7 of us with her entire house for the weekend so our team could meet, prep, and bond. There is a large living room that accommodated all of us comfortably during our long meetings, and a chef's kitchen with a full dining room for our group meals. We've stayed in many types of accommodations in the past, and I can truly say that Amy makes her operation a TRUE home away from home. Here are the little details that REALLY stood out and made a difference for us: Color-coordination of the towels that definitely came in handy for many in our team! Luxuriously eco-friendly atmosphere (linen towels to prevent waste, fragrance-free toiletries, etc.) A lovely AND fully stocked self-serve breakfast spread for our team to eat at staggered/different times (often hard to wrangle large groups to eat together based on different morning routines) If you're looking for intimate, private, yet professional accommodations, this is the place for you! I can't recommend this place enough! Thank you, Amy!!!

FULL HOUSE RENTAL - GREAT FOR THE FAMILY

  • 4 of 5
I recently rented the entire house for my wedding in Berkeley, this house is 100% what we were after, and the house was very much what we expected. The house is in a great location, and very beautiful and comfortable for 9+ people.

I can not comment on what it would be like to just rent one room, but I think that it would still be pleasant as there is enough space for everyone.

The house is very kitted out with everything that you will need (things like having tea, coffee, olive oil etc etc are so helpful when you are are only staying somewhere for a short amount of time).

The owner is very friendly, and super responsive to your emails. The only downside about the house, is that there are only 2 bathrooms, and no clothes washing facilities on site (there is one at the end of the street, but it's nice to have facilities on site - especially when you rent the entire house for a week).

Also, as the house is old, and full of beautiful furniture, there are a number of rules that you will need to follow which is something that I haven't come across in other full house rentals.

All in all, our stay couldn't have been better and I recommend to all.

Owner's Response: So pleased to read that Derby Creek Guesthouse was 100% what Kirsty and her family were after - very nice to hear! Regarding her note on bathrooms, with the outside family members and visitors they brought to the house, bathrooms were shared by around 30 people. With normal-sized groups, bathroom sharing is not a problem. House rules are standard for vacation rentals, and mine are common sense practices that an ordinarily conscientious person would do without being asked (such as not blocking the neighbors' driveways), but which I've learned do need to be spelled out for the inexperienced renter. This "old house" is a fully restored 1908 Craftsman, with new, upscale contemporary kitchens and baths; marble and granite countertops; inset lights in ceilings with dimmers, and other ultra-modern elements. It's the perfect merging of historic charm and contemporary conveniences.

We had a family reunion here at the house - there was room for everyone, including my two young kids (special bedroom off master is perfect for toddler). House is set up for entertaining and is in perfect location blocks from college avenue dining.

HIGH SCHOOL CLASS REUNION IN BAY AREA

  • 4 of 5
Eight ladies celebrated their turning 60 by this get-together of high school classmates. This house was our home for the weekend. Kitchen was fantastically supplied, so cooking was a delight. The living room where we set up a game table could have benefitted from a bit more light for our past-midnight mahjong but we managed by bringing the floor lamps closer to us. Our only issue was that two bathrooms for 5 rooms is stretching it. Perhaps the upstairs bath could be divided to install another shower/toilet instead of the free standing bathtub. Wonder what it's like if there were others, since we got the whole house. Overall, great place in great location.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to host Marina and her group in my home for their 60th birthday celebration and class reunion. We had a mission to help make their event even more special and we were thrilled when they said we succeeded. In response to their feedback, we added more lamps and replaced the bulbs with brighter ones and added privacy screens in the bathrooms so folks could more easily share. Groups that take advantage of the mirrors and hair dryers supplied in the guest rooms report that the bathrooms are sufficient. Thank you for the feedback, Marina, and for choosing my place for your special reunion! Amy
