Berkeley is more convenient to the main sights of SF than many places "in" SF itself -- just 15 minutes across the bridge by car or subway to the heart of all the attractions. Our neighborhood is quiet, beautiful and near everything you would want. Walk down in the morning to a terrific coffee shop with a wonderful bakery next door and enjoy the sunshine while having your breakfast. Have afternoon tea or a cocktail at the historic Claremont Hotel right next door with its sweeping views of San Francisco Bay. Only a little further to the University of California, Berkeley Art Museum, more cafes and restaurants (including Chez Panisse, rated the top in the entire U.S.), movie and live theaters, etc. Near hiking paths, biking trails and a running track -- all with views of the SF Bay. Take a day trip to the Napa wine country, the beaches of Santa Cruz or the Pt.Reyes National Seashore.
We are always interested in Europe (London, Paris, Madrid), Hawaii, and weekend exchanges within California (Los Angeles,Santa Cruz, Monterey/Carmel, Napa/Sonoma).
