Holiday Rental House
Perfect for a couple or two friends, my home is situated in the El Cerrito hills, directly across the San Francisco Bay from the Golden Gate Bridge. You can drive into the City in 30 - 45 minutes, or hop on BART just 5 minutes away and enjoy the ride under the Bay and in half an hour be in the heart of San Francisco. From our convenient location you are minutes from the freeway taking you to Napa and the Wine Country. It's 10 minutes drive to UC Berkeley, or to Chez Panisse and the other restaurants and shops of Berkeley's famed Gourmet Ghetto. Enter through a wooden gate into my serene private front garden.Inspired by Oriental landscaping you can relax on the slate and redwood terracing.

Enter through a wooden gate into my serene private front garden.Inspired by Oriental landscaping you can relax on the slate and redwood terracing. This is a perfect warm weather spot for sunny morning coffee, or soothing afternoon shade. The cool tiled entry hall with its original English Art Deco Chinoiserie lantern leads into the morning room. Relax and enjoy the morning sun and views of the garden through the arched windows. The ceiling light in this room is French Art Deco and the wall lights are original to the house. My piano is available for serious pianists. If you enjoy entertaining then the dining room with its stylish original Art Deco table which folds out to comfortably seat 6 and the Italian dining chairs will serve you well.. Asian antiques and fine English and American artwork complement the mood. The kitchen features a gas stovetop with convection oven, dishwasher, fridge, microwave and - as I enjoy cooking and entertaining - every convenience and appliance you could wish for. Now enter the living room with a wall of windows framing the San Francisco Bay. A bistro table with chairs provides an ideal spot for breakfast or any casual meal. Comfortable seating, large screen TV, DVD and DVR plus a gas flamed fireplace mean that summer and winter you can enjoy magnificent views or the best in entertainment from the comfort of your own space. The house has two bedrooms separated by a bathroom. As I have fitted out the second bedroom as an office with a murphy bed, I limit guests to a maximum of two people.More

About the neighbourhood
We are located in the hills of El Cerrito a quiet and safe East Bay suburb. The BART station and El Cerrito mall with it's twice weekly Farmers Market are just 5 minutes away. Park confidently outside the house and enjoy strolling round the neighborhood. The freeway which takes you in all directions is just 5 minutes away so this is an ideal position for somebody who wants to explore the region and perhaps prefers to visit rather than stay in San Francisco.
