NOTE: Please read the ENTIRE listing description and house rules before requesting to stay...in particular, note that I require consecutive bookings, see explanation below. Reading a hosts' house rules before booking is REQUIRED by Airbnb.

This room is currently available for longer stays starting January 1 2020. (This date will change as it gets booked...check calendar for up to date info...) Please do NOT submit a reservation request for a long stay in this room with a starting date after January 7 2020. Contact me (contact host button) to inquire about other rooms that offer alternate start dates. I usually have a range of available start dates.


This charming Old Lady, a century old Victorian Home,is an artistically colorful and inspiring refuge and place to find rejuvenation for your soul. I have several guest rooms. If this room is full or isn't quite what you are looking for, click on my name/profile to see other listings.

All rooms are single occupancy only to help preserve the quiet environment.

NOTE: This room is generally open only to longer stays of 2 weeks or more , and I take consecutive bookings only. This means that you must book the space within a few days of the date it comes available, which is currently January 1 2020 for longer stays. . . You could not book it with a starting date as of February -- I require consecutive bookings because it is difficult to fill spaces in the calendar otherwise.

Contact me for more info.


THIS ROOM:
This luxurious, very large room is actually two rooms. It is located on the ground floor of the house. The first room is a 16 ft by 12 ft size bedroom, with closet, carpeting, and a brick "altar" area, containing a full size bed, dresser, and table and chair with desk lamp for study.
Then there is a second room, a private yoga/meditation room, which is 10 by 12 ft in size. This room has 3 bay windows, lovely natural morning light, is painted with lilac walls and a peach colored base, and is furnished with an altar and zafu and cushion, as well as a yoga mat and low wicker chair. It is a great place to ground and center, gather your thoughts, do some quiet journaling or art, or energize yourself with some yoga practice or some meditation. The room has a TV which can be used to view VHS movies. I provide a small library of about 12 movies

Clean sheets and towels provided. The house is generally very quiet, and the house rules help make it so, but keep in mind this room is underneath other guest rooms so you will at times hear others walking, or talking above you.

THE HOUSE AND THE LOCATION:
This house is very conveniently located a few blocks from the South Berkeley (Ashby) BART station, the local subway. This allows you to travel to most any San Francisco Bay Area destination without a car. You can quickly arrive to downtown San Francisco within 30-45 minutes by BART.
Within walking distance of 5 blocks, you can find: several ethnic restaurants (African and Mexican come to mind), 2 cafes, 2 bakeries, La Pena Latin American cultural center, Starry Plough Irish Pub, a low-fee acupuncture clinic, and Berkeley Bowl grocery store, with its celebrated enormous offering of fresh produce. Walk a little farther north, and within 30 minutes or 1 mile you will come to downtown Berkeley, and the University of California at Berkeley, movie theatres and many shops, restaurants, and other attractions such as bookstores, comics/games stores. (Downtown Berkeley is also just one BART stop away.) By walking East, you come to the attractive Elmwood avenue shopping area within ¾ mile, and its shops, restaurants (Indian and Mediterranean among them), movie theatre and Metaphysical bookstore. The Walkscore rating for my home location is 88 out of a possible 100 in terms of walkability: any higher a rating and you would have trouble finding parking.



THE FLOOR WHERE ROOM IS LOCATED: The ground floor on which this room is located could be described as "funky". It is clean and well-organized, but has some odd angles, the ceiling in the kitchenette has a jigsaw puzzle quality to it, there are exposed heating ducts and plumbing, and the laundry machines are next to the stove. It is difficult to keep completely free of cobwebs due to the crevices. Please dont' book a room on this floor if you would be disturbed seeing a cobweb. If you prefer something less funky in style, you may want to consider my other room listings.

That said, I have done a lot to make the common areas on this floor lively with color -- the walls are orange, there are fairy lights, a salt lamp, Mexican folk art from Oaxaca, Michoacan, and Guerrero, as well as Folk art from Nepal.

You will share the kitchen and bathroom with 2 others. I am not vegetarian, and there are no restrictions on what you may cook here. There is wifi and laundry available on site.

CLEANING:
Common areas of the house are professionally cleaned once a month: I clean the common areas once a week. Apart from this, guests are required to clean up after themselves in common areas (see house rules for more info).

ARCHITECTURE:
Architecturally, this is a colorful and playful house, where you won’t find white or “off white” rooms. The rooms on main floor have ten foot high ceilings and attractive moulding. The rooms and general design of the ground floor below is quite colorful and soulful, and I think imaginative and really delightful. All the original redwood moulding and redwood panel doors of the house remain. Upstairs, the spacious kitchen is orange with a blue countertop and green tile floor, featuring an antique Wedgewood stove. For those staying 4 weeks or less, there are basic staples for you to use for your cooking. (For those staying longer please purchase your own staples). Downstairs there is a kitchenette and utility area which features most of the amenities you would need to prepare meals, including a microwave oven.


BACKYARD:
Free to enjoy the backyard garden, perhaps visiting the hens, or the "Bunny Castle" with rabbits Moonstone, Flopsy and Cinnamon, or sit by the pond with running water.


PARKING:
Parking: 2 hr parking on most streets in the area, but there are some sections of the street with unrestricted parking.

I have a bicycle that you would be able to use, if you wish, with the payment of an additional security deposit to cover its potential loss.

HOUSE RULES:
Please read house rules before requesting a reservation, to make sure you will be comfortable with the setting. I ask that prospective guests fill out a complete profile including photo, and verified email and phone number.

SAFETY:
Prospective guests often ask about area safety. Guests have said that the area feels safe, and neither I nor any renter/guest has been robbed or accosted in the 9 years I have lived here. Apart from stating such facts, I cannot answer general questions about "how safe" the area is, or "will I be safe doing X", any more than I could answer a question about how likely you are to get hit by a car when walking around my neighborhood. Safety is both subjective and relative, and is also dependent upon use of common sense, such as being observant of one's surroundings, and not walking down the street while talking on the phone and advertising one's expensive electronics. Robberies do occur around the Ashby BART area and throughout Oakland and Berkeley. No area is completely safe.

This house has been a community house of one kind or another for over 40 years, and I have over 9 years experience in renting rooms in my house and learning how to create a tranquil environment for others to enjoy. It's a large house, and you won't feel crowded here: it's a great place to stay if you like your privacy and enjoy your independence so I welcome you to come enjoy a tranquil retreat from the workaday world and rekindle your sense of delight and enchantment!

2 bathrooms, full use of the kitchen, full use of laundry facilities for those staying 3 days or more, use of backyard. Use of Meditation Room if it is not occupied by a guest staying in that room.

I like to talk with guests when they arrive, but I am a pretty private person as well as someone needing large blocks of private time for creative projects, so after I get home from work I tend to spend time alone. I also am out a lot on weekends. I tend to chat with guests when I them around...if you like interacting with others, there is always more than one guest at the house and you are likely to be able to get to know other people from around the world.

The immediate area is a one-block long very quiet residential neighborhood of mostly single family homes, but we are also one block away from a main street which has several cafes and restaurants, and we are walking distance from downtown Berkeley and the UC Campus.

The BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit, the local subway) is only 2 blocks away, and makes it easy to travel to most destinations in the Bay Area. There are also bus lines within 1 block.

This area is a quiet neighborhood of mostly single family homes and duplexes. Yet we are conveniently located only 2-3 blocks from at least 4 cafes/coffee shops, and 5-7 blocks from 2 large grocery stores. There are many restaurants and eateries within walking distance, and downtown Berkeley is just 30 minutes away by foot or 5 minutes by BART or bus.

I have a passionate interest in cultivating the life of the soul of the human psyche. In the past I worked as a counselor and led a dream group. For many years, I have studied mythology and Jungian psychology, and practiced Active Imagination and dreamwork. I use Tarot as a tool for spiritual/soul growth as well as the Divinatory Arts, and I study and practice Horary Astrology. Since I am a practicing Horary Astrologer, please inquire if you would be interested in me doing an Horary Astrological Chart interpretation for a question that you may have. You can find me by looking for "Green Planet Astrology". I enjoy Early Music and Sacred vocal music, and am an avid yoga practitioner. I also spend time taking long walks in the many Bay Area parks we are so fortunate to have available here. I also love creating beautiful spaces, and having an opportunity to do so creatively is one of my favorite types of projects to undertake in my professional life in home design. I've spent a lot of time making a more beautiful and inspiring space out of my own home, and I feel grateful to be able to make this space available to others! I am an introvert, a visual artist, writer and book lover and also spend a great deal of my free time either browsing bookstores, or at home engaged in the enchanting world of a good story or compelling mystery book, doing pen sketches and small watercolor or acrylic paintings, or working on the mystery novel I"m writing. I love that the San Francisco Bay Area is one of the richest spiritual centers in the world, with a marvelous diversity of teachings, retreat centers and workshops available here. We are extremely fortunate in this regard. In my own spiritual path, the role of Imagination and Creativity are very important, and the type of Meditation I practice is music/devotional meditation rather than Vipassana, though I do attend Buddhist retreats and workshops from time to time.

I am a fairly private person and need large chunks of time alone to do art projects. I enjoy chatting with guests when they arrive or when I meet them in the yard or kitchen.
