Serene, Eco-Friendly Rooms/House in North Berkeley

Overview
Private Room , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Berkeley, California
This beautiful, eco-friendly guest house in the Berkeley Hills is a serene refuge for visitors from around the world. Most guests rent ONE OR TWO ROOMS ONLY*, sharing the house with the innkeeper and enjoying B&B ambiance along with full access to our gorgeous kitchen! There's room for your favorite groceries. Make yourself a cup of Peet's delicious coffee or a pot of tea; some guests make breakfast and are gone for the day; others head out first thing to join family, friends, or local foodies for all their yummy meals; and a lucky few are here when the organic garden harvest is in!

Guests find this haven surprisingly peaceful as well as convenient; we're just a block away from the restaurants and shops in Kensington Village, two miles north of UC Berkeley, and a five-minute drive to the Gourmet Ghetto.

"We had a delightful time in your lovely and welcoming home! Love the light and airy feeling, and the beautiful views from each window. Each time we walked through the front garden, we noticed a plant or flower we hadn’t seen before! So comfy and...More

What a fabulous guest house and host! Terry really took care of us. I had a recent ice skating accident prior to arrival and both of my wrists were in braces. This handicap made travel really challenging for us. Terry saw this and went out...More

About the neighborhood
The North Berkeley Hills Homestay is tucked away in a charming residential neighborhood just below beautiful Tilden Park, a block from wonderful restaurants and shops in Kensington Village, one mile from North Berkeley's best shopping street (Solano Avenue), two miles north of UC Berkeley, and a five-minute drive to the Gourmet Ghetto. We are 30-45 minutes from SF and a little more than an hour from Napa, Muir Woods, and other favorite Bay Area sights.

In Tilden Park, you'll find great hiking trails, the Brazil Building, petting zoo, carousel and steam train. It's an easy walk to two AC transit bus routes (#7 and #67), one that goes directly downtown, the other to UC Berkeley, and street parking is plentiful; there are no time limits and no need to move for street sweeping....
