About listing

Come enjoy a California sunset on the deck and watch in its amber Mount Tamalpaise and San Francisco, or relax in the private landscaped front yard in a quiet upscale neighborhood. Fully furnished spacious home. Ideal for a large family of up to eight. Here are a few of its features and location: A 3 BR 2 BA (2000 sq. ft./186 m sq.) home. Two rooms have queen bed and the third has full bed. It sleeps up to 8 (6 in beds 2 on full size futon). Close to BART (train to SF) (1 mi), Berkeley (8 mi), San Francisco (18 mi), and Napa (30 mi). Spacious, clean and family friendly. Close to restaurants and family-friendly activities including free access to multiple tennis courts. My place is great for couples, and families (with kids). Close to Wild Cat Canyon Park (1mi) and Tilden Park (1 1/2 mi). My favorite Natural Grocery Store and Food Annex is just 3 miles away. Check out their Dad's Cardamom Ice Cream. A food super store (Safeway) is within a mile. My home has all the basic amenities you will need including internet access (wi fi), Direct TV with 250 channels. Kitchen has what you'd typically need to cook and prepare for your family and guests. Plenty of hotel-standard clean towels and linens. There are in-house modern washer and dryer. I strive to make my house pleasing and hospitable. Seeing my guests leave with a broad smile is my goal.

    We recently stayed at this lovely home in El Cerrito when we came to Berkeley for our son's graduation. Six of us stayed in the home, which was large and comfortable for all. My son found the futon in the living room to be extremely comfortable. The master bedroom and bathroom is large and nicely renovated - as is the entire house. Our host met us shortly after we checked in and provided some welcome goodies and information on the house and nearby grocery stores. The home is a 15 minute drive from the UC Berkeley campus - s straight shot if you drive down Arlington Boulevard. The view from the back balcony is beautiful - with views of the Golden Gate bridge, Alcatraz and the downtown San Francisco skyline - a view I would never get tired of. I would definitely rent and stay in this lovely home when we return to the Berkeley area. 29 May 2017 - 14:46:00

    This was a charming house with plenty of room for us 5 adults. The host Fassil was so nice and came to greet us. Left us a bottle of wine and some site seeing ideas. House was furnished nicely with plenty of extras. charming patio to enjoy the great weather. And an awesome view from the back deck. Beds were comfortable and plenty of closet and drawer space. We totally enjoyed our stay and were in close proximity to both San Francisco sites and Wine country! Would recommend this place and will be back! Just a few miles from relatives of ours. Thank again Fassil!! 31 May 2017 - 03:37:00

    Wonderful, clean, quiet property. Perfect for our families stay. Owner Fassil was very gracious, left us wine, and many extras. He was also attentive when we had a minor problem with the door lock, came over to make sure the problem was taken care of. Definitely five stars! 05 July 2017 - 23:21:00

    Das Ferienhaus diente uns (Familie mit 2 Kindern) als Ausgangspunkt fr Ausflge nach San Francisco, Monterey und Sausalito / Marin Headland. Es ist sehr gerumig und bietet alles, was man als Familie bentigt. Fassil war als Vermieter sehr hilfsbereit und hat uns viele wertvolle Tipps gegeben. The house served as a base for our trips to San Francisco, Monterey and Sausalito. The owner Fassil was supporting us in every aspect and gave very useful tips. We enjoyed our stay very much and recommend this house. 23 July 2017 - 07:58:00

    We were visiting ( Aug 2017) San Francisco for the first time to do sight seeing - Fisherman's Wharf , China Town , Golden Gate Bridge etc. and decided to stay at this house. Fassil met us on arrival and brought a loaf of crusty bread , a bottle of wine , a hand of bananas and a 4 litre bottle of water. The house itself was clean and well kept , the beds were comfortable . The kitchen was fully equipped . The freezer was full - it seems from food that was left over from previous visitors. It could do with some purging. Each bathroom should have a plunger . We decided not to rent a car and took the BART to go to down town. If cost $9.00 round trip from El Cerrito to the Powell Station. and it takes about 45 minutes. The house is situated on a hill side and there are a few steep hills to climb - if you decided to hike it up from the BART station. In the morning , we would walk down hill to the BART station off Cutting Blvd (15-20 minute) and take a taxi back up . By meter it cost $7.50 - but there is $ 10 minimum charge. To get to the house from the Airport you could actually take the BART from OAK or SFO - if all you have is a carry on. However, because there there were 5 of us with checked luggage we took Super Shuttle which cost us about $100 one way. We stayed here - because it was affordable compared to a VRBO rental in San Francisco . It took a bit more effort - but it served it's purpose and we enjoyed our stay . 18 August 2017 - 16:12:00

    We felt very comfortable and at home in this very spacious property. Everything was there that you might need for your stay and it was well kept and very clean. Our only issue was a heat wave in the San Francisco area as we arrived. There is no air conditioning in the house, but honestly, there is no air conditioning in any of the houses or restaurants in the entire area! It never (usually) gets warm enough to require it!!! After two days the weather cooled and all was fine, but be aware if that is a requirement, it's not there! Fassil was incredibly responsive and ready to answer any and all questions and point you in the right direction...that was great! So, back deck with beautiful view, front patio with table and chairs, living room AND family room, eat-in kitchen AND dining room...so very gracious and roomy. Thanks, Fassil!!! 16 September 2017 - 11:35:00

    We stayed for 6 days and had a nice stay. The home is very large and lots of room. Sat out on the deck in the morning for coffee and saw a few deer, birds and humming birds. It was very warm and the rooms could use some ceiling fans. We enjoyed going into San Francisco and wine country. Did not use the Bart system. Thank you for sharing your home with us. 12 September 2017 - 17:26:00

    We stayed in this beautiful, perfect house for a month to organize things after my mother passend away and we could no longer stay in the family home nearby. It turned out to be a real find: big enough for the whole family with enough equipment to have family and friends for meals. Fassil was the perfect host, responding immediately to any little problems that came up. We had quiet evenings at home, dinner parties and days of packing and organizing the memorial service. The house is close to busses, Bart and stores. The appliances all work perfectly and the beds are good. We are grateful to have found this and hope to come back. 29 January 2018 - 18:22:00
