My wife and I rent out a fully furnished ground floor 2 bedroom apartment that opens onto a garden in a peaceful and safe neighborhood in North Berkeley. Our apartment is a short walk to UC Berkeley, public transit, restaurants, and grocery stores.
The apartment is about a 10 minute walk away from UC Berkeley campus (ca.0.5 miles/3.5 blocks) and a 5 minute walk to Berkeley's Gourmet Ghetto, which consists of lots of restaurants and little shops …
It's a 15 minute walk to Downtown BART, which will take you to San Francisco within about 30 minutes, and the AC Transit bus station is 5 minutes away. (Buslines: 7/18)
