Private, sunlit room located in Berkeley, just a 10-minute walk through a neighborhood of beautiful, Victorian-style homes and breath-taking foliage on the way to Ashby BART. Berkeley is home to the Cal Bears of UC Berkeley and therefore boasts a variety of local bars and restaurants. This unit is a 25-minute walk or one BART station away from Downtown Berkeley.
Pets & children are welcome but please be mindful that the only private space is the bedroom. I have a dog & 2 indoor cats. Thanks! :)

Atención a los huéspedes
I am more than happy to help guests with suggestions regarding where to eat/drink, etc. I spend most of my day out of the house & may not be around during check in/out. After work, I tend to relax in the living room with dinner. I'll be around but guests don't need to feel obligated to socialize with me (although I am very friendly!)
Otros aspectos destacables
The early check-out/late check-in times apply only to weekdays so I can swap out linens before work/the next guest. Late check-outs/ins on weekends are no problem and I'm always flexible! The water gets VERY hot, so please be careful. The cats are indoor only, so please remember to keep the door closed behind you. I don't let them into the bedrooms, so they naturally try to sneak in if the door is ajar. The dog is very friendly and out of his crate during the day but if this bothers you, let me know & I can put him in his crate while I'm at work. I get up at 6 or 630, shower, walk the dog & leave by 8 or 9 M-F. Sometimes it's earlier, if I have to stop by a site on my way to the office. I tend to get home around 5 or 6 in the evenings. Guests may use the washer/dryer. I keep bread available for toast and I will provide fresh fruit. There is also a great cafe within walking distance (about 10 minutes).
Keep the front door closed at all times so the animals don't sneak out. After showering, please put up the bath mat over the curtain. I don't mind food & drink in the bedroom but please refrain from red wine or anything that will stain.
I have 1 dog & 2 cats. I am a non-smoker and currently a Branch Manager at Securitas, Inc. I have an MBA in marketing and I studied both cultural anthropology & religious studies for my undergrad. I love to drink coffee when I'm getting ready in the morning and I love to finish my day with red wine! I love traveling and exploring new cultures. My last two roommates were from Denmark & India, and I absolutely loved every minute of it! I can't wait to meet you!
