Whether you are visiting Berkeley to study, work, teach, visit friends or family, or attend a training course, this spacious 2 floor Elmwood apartment might be what you need.

Lo spazio
The space

This renovated 2-floor apartment is approx 960 sq ft (89 sq meters) in total. It has a somewhat unusual layout. The upstairs open-plan loft/living room/bedroom is 680 sq ft (63 sq meters) and the downstairs area is 280 sq ft (26 sq meters).

Downstairs, the apartment features a kitchen, bathroom with double stall shower, and a den with a TV, sofa and futon. The futon in the den converts to a double bed for an extra guest or two (but it's technically not a "bedroom" since it doesn't have a closet). Upstairs is a large bright, sunny loft which serves as a combined bedroom and living space. There is an open-plan half-bath adjacent to the sleeping area (screened from the bed area but - important to note - it has no door). The bed is a custom-made king-size chest bed with storage drawers underneath.

The apartment has hardwood floors throughout, exceptfor the kitchen and bathroom which have tiled floors. It’s fully furnished and equipped – and decorated with accents such as etched glass, indirect lighting, and marble floor inserts, while retaining much of the original character. There’s a shared washer and dryer on the back porch. One off-street parking space will usually be available for your use - but you can manage fine without a car since there's good public transport and Zipcar and City Car Share locations a block away.

It’s suitable for 2 people, although as noted there is a convertible futon in the den that could be used for additional guests.

Our rates are all-inclusive. We pay the Berkeley business license tax, but it is not charged to you. The City of Berkeley charges guests a 12% occupancy tax if you stay for less than 30 nights.

The Neighborhood

The apartment is in the Elmwood residential district, close to stores, cafes, sandwich shops, coffee houses, bookstores, music stores, and student hangouts on Telegraph Avenue. A CVS pharmacy is 2 blocks away; Whole Foods is 5 blocks. For foodies, there are numerous specialty and ethnic restaurants & cafes in several directions.


The Berkeley Campus is 5 short blocks to the north – a 10-12 minute walk. It's 10 minutes' walk from Alta Bates Hospital.

There are buses along College Avenue (one block away) to downtown Berkeley and the Rockridge BART station (Bay Area Rapid Transit system). The Claremont Hotel & Conference Center is just over a mile away – a 20 minute walk. There’s easy freeway access from Claremont Avenue, which enables you to drive to San Francisco, Oakland, Marin County & the Golden Gate Bridge, Napa Valley, and Lake Tahoe. Twenty minutes driving (outside of rush hours!) will take you to San Francisco across the new Bay Bridge, or if you take BART, it’s about a 20 minute ride to SF from Rockridge BART.


Our delightful managers Binyam and Bruk (originally from Ethiopia) know this property well; Binyam did much of the remodeling work. One or both of them will welcome you when you arrive and they will be available during your stay by phone or e-mail to answer any questions (as I will). Otherwise, we respect your privacy - you will have the place to yourself and won’t be disturbed.


•Our rates are all-inclusive. We pay the Berkeley business license tax, but it is not charged to you.
•The accommodation charge includes a one-time cleaning and stocking with an initial supply of essentials (soap, paper towels, shampoo, etc.) before you move in. We don't charge a separate cleaning fee.

The fine print

•Minimum 14 day stay as required by the City of Berkeley.
•A 12% occupancy tax is charged on any stay of less than 30 days.
•No smoking of any kind in the apartment or anywhere else in the building or on the property - the hallways, stairways, and the grounds! It's against the law: the City of Berkeley prohibits smoking anywhere in multi-unit buildings. We also prohibit vaping (e-cigarettes) because it creates many of the same issues as second-hand cigarette smoke.
•This is a quiet residential apartment building, and we aim to keep it that way. Please respect your neighbors – no parties or loud noise! Quiet time is 10:00 pm to 8:00 a.m.
• Also, please remove your outdoor shoes inside the apartment (or wear soft indoor shoes or slippers), and tread softly on the hardwood floors! The people living in the apartment below will appreciate it.
• For residential purposes only (home office OK).

Born in England, now living in California for many years. Two (!!) graduate degrees from UC Berkeley. I have been an Airbnb guest in the US and several other countries and have appreciated the experience of staying in a real home, a place with warmth and character, in an interesting walkable neighborhood. That’s what my co-host (my husband Jack) and I offer you, too, in Berkeley – a vibrant town with an internationally renowned university, distinctive architecture, innovative restaurants, serious coffee houses, bookstores, parks, museums, theater, a lively music scene – and conveniently close to San Francisco.
