Our 3+ bedroom home is on a wonderful, friendly little street near the lovely Berkeley Rose Garden.  It's a great walking neighborhood - not only can you stroll over to the Rose Garden and Codornices Park, you can walk down to the shops and cafés of North Berkeley, walk or bike to the UC campus, and explore many charming walking paths throughout the Berkeley Hills neighborhood.

Our home was built in 1923 with classic details of the period, and we expanded and updated a true cook's kitchen with built-in nook where you'll enjoy relaxing and viewing our small private garden.  There's a dining room with view of the back garden, and a living room with grand piano.  Upstairs you'll find 3 bedrooms, and above is an attic office/spare room with a view of San Francisco Bay. Last but not least there's a basement/TV room which opens to the back garden - there's lots of space!  Fast internet for working from home.  Friendly neighbors.

We need house and dogsitters from June 22 - July 11, although we have a niece who could come stay June 27-July 3 if need be to fill in.

There is one little dog who lives here - Charlie is a sweet 5 year old small mix (he's a rescue dog, Pomeranian plus about 4 other kinds).  He takes liquid liver medicine 3 times a day but is very easy care. He likes to cuddle, sit in the sun, and take short walks. He can be left alone for hours at a time, happily sleeping in his crate. 

We will also be hosting our daughter's dog, Minnow. He is a sweet miniature pinscher mix who has some separation anxiety and just needs company, barks if left alone for long, so it's best if you are a work from home type or can take him with you when you go out.

This is a peaceful and beautiful neighborhood, a great base for exploring Berkeley and the greater Bay Area. You'll love it here!  Our prior house-sitters have really enjoyed their stay and have returned twice!

Natasha and Sandy were terrific to work with and we really enjoyed looking after Charlie. This was our first experience with this website and we feel very fortunate to have stayed in such a lovely home.
