Berkeley Hills Mid-century Home, With Bay & Forest Views; Next to Trails

Please confirm that you have read the full description and house policies before you request to book. Please tell us who you are and why you like our home! We are unlikely to rent to groups of students because of this- Fall 2020: we are working and homeschooling remotely so we will use the bottom level studio as base camp and travel some during your stay. We really prefer longer term rentals and have already added a discount for weekly and monthly stays. We can negotiate a bit more for renting over 2 months. Our multi-level home is a light-filled open-plan mid-century modern. Very comfortable, both tree-filled and expansive views, with decks front and rear off the living room. Propane BBQ in front, and serene breakfast table with great views in back. There is a lower level deck surrounded by our organic garden and greenscape. There is a chicken coop on the side of the house, Our neighbors will occasionally take care of our chickens. The kitchen is modest but open to the living area and has everything you need. We are environmentally mindful. All of our linens and the King and twin bed mattresses are organic. We provide eco-sensitive cleaning products. We have bins to recycle and compost almost everything. Up a half-flight of stairs are two bedrooms, which each sleep two comfortably, and a bathroom with shower/tub. Our home is suitable for 4 adults and 1 child or a family of 5 or less. Sorry, we can not accommodate 5 adults. Modest entertainment system and fast wifi. One of the best features of the house is easy access to fantastic trails in Tilden Park and Strawberry Canyon. Literally 100 yards away are great hiking, running and mountain bike trails. We take our dog on long off-leash walks on them every day and she loves it! We are also very close to awesome kids attractions like the Lawrence Hall of Science (kids science museum - 5 minute walk), and the Steam Trains narrow-gauge railroad, Tilden Carousel, and Little Farm petting zoo (5-10 minute drives). Beautiful Tilden Park Golf Course, with it's Grizzly Bar and Grill, is a two-minute drive. Public transit goes right by the house for car-free access down the hill to Berkeley. Our garden is our oasis. Young fruit trees, berry bushes, vegetable beds and a friendly honey bee colony on the top of our upper roof ( you wouldn't notice if we didn't point it out ). We hope that you enjoy the serenity of being surrounded by nature! Our property is fully fenced in to keep the wildlife out. Please double check to make the the property gates are closed :-) This is our primary home so while we will make some limited space available in dressers and closets and pantry, be aware that our belongings will be in the house. Please enjoy our house and respect our belongings. We are potentially accommodating to well behaved dogs, but will charge $30 per night extra for each dog you want to bring. There is 1 large dog bed available. We have a dog ( no cats- sorry allergic ) contract to cover any additional damage that could occur as well as pet rules: no dogs on furniture or in bedrooms. We have a fenced in yard with a side gate. Your dog will have access to the front yard only since we have a garden and chickens in the backyard. There is a detached in-law/studio unit on the bottom floor of our home. There's a chance that a quiet ( usually post-doc ) student will be there. There's a chance that our family will be in and out of it during your stay or it could be empty. We ask that you keep your noise to a minimum, especially in the living room, between 10pm and 7:30am if someone is in the studio. Thanks for your consideration! Most of the neighbors have lived here for decades, and are very quiet, friendly and helpful. We are brand new to VRBO however we have been on AIRBNB for 7 years where we have 60 reviews average 4.8 stars.
