We seek one community-oriented scholar or other visitor for each vacant bedroom at our convenient Berkeley home. Housemates are a grad student, a pet carer, and a fiction editor.
Your bedroom has a bed, a desk, a fridge, drawers and closet space for your clothes, linens, plenty of heat, plenty of light, and high-speed Internet. You also share a great kitchen, laundry, den, two bathrooms, backyard, a shady patio, a sunny patio, and a covered patio.
In addition, the Cabin has its own shower, and Room I looks directly out on the fenced front garden.
Julia I available now
This sunny room is the largest in our house at approximately 13 x 16 feet. It has a coffered ceiling, an arched doorway, and a tiled non-working fireplace. Three of its five large windows look out on the fenced front garden.
Although two other people live in the house, our rooms are at the back of the house and your room is at the front, for privacy.
Julia II available March 1, 2024
From this lovely room the two windows look out on greenery. This 10 x 12 room is at the back of the house, away from the quiet street. It has brand new windows and climate controls, and is extra arty.
<--< Julia Cabin
available August 1, 2024
This 8 x 12-foot, cozy house is between two patios, and has a lovely bathroom right next to it. The resident shares the kitchen and washing machine seen in the photos.
This house is in a friendly, quiet neighborhood with an astonishing array of amenities. See this neighborhood map.
Sorry, no pets. Each room is for one non-smoking human only. Negative local Covid test required.
Strongly prefer a full-time worker or scholar. Visitors to the Bay Area are welcome.
There is reliable on-street parking next to the house. Nearby are BART and buses. We are one BART stop from campus, and when I was there regularly, it took me about ten minutes between campus and here by bike.
Here are the answers to some questions I am often asked:
* We have lived here since 1987.
* One of us is an editor and the other cares for pets at the pets' homes.
* The editor is a she/her and the pet guy is a he/him.
* We keep things neat, and we clean regularly.
* We've lived here with dozens of graduate students from all over the world. Check out the Testimonials page.
* We are friendly, but not overbearing, and like wordplay. At least one of us is a smarty-pants. We are auditioning others.
Please tell us a bit about yourself:
for example, where you work or study, the dates you would like to stay (more or less), where you're living now, and so forth. Please give the name of the room, 'Julia I,' 'Julia II,' or 'Julia Cabin,' in the subject of the mail.
