Rent Homestay By The Bay's lovely, clean and organized 1908 historic American home with 5 furnished guest rooms, 9 beds, 2 remodeled bathrooms, a formal dining room, formal living room, large professional kitchen, front porch, and verdant yards. I've poured my heart into making this place a perfect home away from home for weary travelers, with the unique and special feeling of an old-style country inn. Let me spoil you and your family with the best guesthouse experience in the East Bay.
At the end of a long day of adventures, you'll snuggle into our brand new, down comforters and sink luxuriously into a generous bounty of goose feather and down pillows. Whole house heating will keep you comfy and cozy, but if you catch a chill, there's a small space heater in each room, as well as extra blankets and throws to keep you as warm as a loaf of freshly baked bread.
Enjoy an invigorating morning shower in one of two big, contemporary showers, or take a long, hot soak in the deep, antique clawfoot tub, restored with a sparkling white finish and gleaming chrome feet. Each guest receives a big bundle of brand new, plush towels, color coordinated to your room, and there are plenty of spares on hand if you need them. You don't need to pack those troublesome little soap bottles - we've outfitted each shower with organic bath soap, shampoo, and hair conditioner.
Enjoy a large, well-equipped kitchen with room for all your goodies and gear for cooking; a comfy living room with cable TV and room for the whole family to spread out; a wrap-around deck with comfy patio seating; and a pretty backyard with a sturdy teak table and chairs AND A NEW BBQ GRILL.
Also on hand: travel books, tourist guides, maps, magazines, and the Sunday San Francisco Chronicle.
All of the rooms are super clean and absolutely gorgeous, with clean, recently painted walls, comfortable and interesting high quality furnishings in matching color schemes, and completely uncluttered. Some rooms can accommodate more than two (with our portable cots/futon chairs). In addition to a comfortable bed, each room has its own bedside tables with lamps, desk with chair, reading chair or sofa, plush towels, mirror, iron, ironing board, space heater and fan, and closet space with hangers.
Bedroom #1 - THE WILDCAT CANYON ROOM
17 ft x15 1/2 ft (263 square feet)
This is our largest and most luxurious room, with a king sized bed (sleeps 2), a queen sized futon sofa (sleeps 2), and a twin-sized chair futon. There's also a very cool, antique roll top desk/chair for your work; a sitting area with wicker chairs and a small, round table; and a large, walk-in closet that converts to a small bedroom for the kids. Large windows on two walls flood this room in natural light, which you can filter with the sheers or block with the curtains.
Bedroom #2 - THE MUIR WOODS ROOM
14 1/2 ft x 12 1/2 ft (181 square feet)
This is a large room with a comfortable queen-sized, rough-hewn, 4-poster bed, an antique desk and chair, a comfy reading chair that is also a small futon bed, and plenty of space to move around. The decor is reminiscent of the gorgeous redwood forests of Northern California.
Bedroom #3 - THE ROSE GARDEN ROOM
13 ft x 10 ft (130 square feet)
This pretty, romantic room is furnished with a gorgeous and comfortable queen-sized, cherry wood bed (sleeps 2) in Victorian design, a lovely antique Victorian armchair, a dresser for clothes. Named after the Berkeley Rose Gardens, it features floral rose decor and antique wooden dressers with hand-painted roses.
Bedroom #4 - THE BAYSHORE ROOM
21 ft x 10 ft (210 square feet)
Folks who like bright, airy spaces will love this medium-sized sunroom with wrap-around windows, a comfortable queen-sized 4-poster bed (sleeps 2), a teak secretary desk, chair, and cabinet with drawers for your stuff. The seashore decor is reminiscent of the Bay Area's coastal environments that draw visitors from all over the world.
Bedroom #5 - THE ANGEL ISLAND ROOM
7 ft x 10 ft (70 square feet)
This very small room is big enough for just one person. It has a handmade teak twin bed, a very cool antique secretary desk and chair, and a teak hutch that can also open out into a desk. The best thing about this room: it's affordable!
CLEAN AND GREEN
We uphold very high cleaning standards with deep cleaning between guests. We provide green living supports (recycling, composting, chemical-free bath products, etc.), but we're not the green police, so do your best and let us handle the rest.
*** NOT A PARTY HOUSE ***
Important: if your group is looking for a house where you can hold loud parties or stay up all night, this is not the place for you.
