Over 700 sq ft. of sunny newly renovated downstairs space. The place has one bedroom, one full bathroom, a large living room overlooking the backyard and a kitchenette equipped with everything you need for a short or moderate length stay. The area has plenty of street parking. Easy access to BART and Berkeley. We are a couple who are semi-retired. We live upstairs.
This is a downstairs finished basement with a separate entrance. There is a large living room with a large picture window that overlooks the backyard. The place has a kitchenette that offers a toaster oven, a two burner electric stove top, a microwave, a full size fridge, a digital coffee maker, a tea pot, a food processor and basic kitchenware for simple everyday cooking including some spices and condiments (No stove, or oven). The place also has a full bath with a tub. The living room has a futon that opens up to be a full bed, and a chaise that opens up to a twin bed. The bedroom has a comfortable queen bed with a new orthopedic mattress, a chest and two large closets. There is another bonus room that is not included in the rental, but will not be accessed by us during your stay. You may still store your luggage there if you wish.
Our washer and dryer are located in the garage, and you will need to coordinate your washing times with us, which won't be hard since we both work very limited hours, and one of us works from home. You can of course use the backyard, have your morning coffee on the swing and pick some lemons off of the lemon tree, and whatever we have planted in season. More trees and plants are being gradually added. We envision an edible garden hopefully in the near future.

We are Bay Area lovers and enthusiasts, and would love for everyone in the world to come and see our magnificent area. We are into living an unhurried pace, and smelling the roses. John works from home in financial services, and Haya is a part time physical therapist, and is into gardening. We appreciate the simple pleasures of life, like walking around our neighborhood, watching our plants grow, cooking and eating out in small ethnic restaurants.
We travelled to over 50 countries around the world between the two of us. As we are getting older, we are starting to enjoy staying home, and having excitement come to us. We have met very interesting people through our Airbnb gig, and we are looking forward to continue to do so.
