The space

Home in the Berkeley flats, within walking distance to restaurants, cafes, shops, services, public transportation, BART, Downtown Berkeley, and the University of California at Berkeley. 1400 square foot home with 2 bedrooms, one bath, living room, kitchen, dining room, office/work room, large front and back yard, and 3 very soft and friendly cats. Children/teens live in this home, so there are toys, books, etc for ages 0-100 years old. Great neighborhood near big park with basketball and tennis courts and play structures, close to Bay and Berkeley marina, with friendly neighbors.

The main bedroom has an incredibly comfortable king-sized bed and new flat-screen TV. The smaller bedroom has another very comfortable queen-sized bed and an adult-length twin-sized bunk bed with a new mattress. The kitchen is a gourmet cook's kitchen, so it is well stocked with all kinds of kitchen tools, baking pans, cuisinart, blender, new dishwasher and refrigerator, and a stereo system to listen to while you cook, etc. The kitchen was just entirely remodeled and is very beautiful and open, with an island for eating or working at, and a kitchen table for sit-down meals. There is a large back room that we use as a workspace with 3 desks, computer screen (if you want to plug in your laptop), art work-space, and a queen-sized futon that can be folded down and used as a third bedroom. The living room has a piano, books, stereo, and couches.

The work room opens with large sliding glass doors onto a beautiful large garden with all kinds of fruit trees, vegetable beds, chicken coop, garden furniture, including a table and chairs if you wish to eat meals outside. There is also an outdoor sink and kitchen prep area, in case you really like having your meals outside. The back yard gets a lot of sun, even in the winter, and is a lovely place to sit and read or drink your morning coffee or evening wine.

There is also a front yard garden with a lovely place to sit, well-hidden from the street behind a screen of purple princess flowers and other foliage.

The front living room has a stereo system, couch, chairs, piano, guitar, other instruments, and fluffy carpet, and is a nice place to stretch out, play games, and relax. We love our home, and think you will as well.

Solange and her families home was ideal in every way! Not only was it child friendly (for two toddlers), but has a fully equipped kitchen, musical instruments, kitties to love on, citrus trees, laundry facilities, in perfect location (for our needs), and the list goes on! It was …

We wanted a comfortable, homey and reasonably priced place to stay while visiting the Bay Area and found it in Solange's clean and cozy home. The home is in a quiet, relaxed neighborhood close to BART, shopping, restaurants and other amenities. It also provides easy access to f…

Our visit to Solange's house was a great match; we needed to be there with a 13 year old and a three year old, and the hominess of the house helped both of them feel comfortable away from home. Our son(the three year old) loved watching the chickens and the pet rats and it was n…

Just as described, my children adored the chickens and rats and cats. They still talk about the cats by name.

We had a perfect stay at Solange's beautiful and comfortable home. My kids loved playing with the pet rats and we all enjoyed picking apples and mulberries to eat off the trees. As a family, it was very comfortable staying in a house with kids as there was something for all of us…

Solange and Russell's cozy home was delightful and comfortable to stay in. There was lots of eclectic artwork on the walls. While we never met them, they were always prompt and eager to answer any questions. The house was convenient to all of Berkley with our rental car. Our son …
