A unique experience awaits the traveler in the historic Berkeley Hills. Amidst the archeological haunts of the original Ohlone people, rock parks and pathways entice guests to explore thousands of years of California’s earliest history. The sanctuary is small but crafted for coziness. Indian Rock, with its breathtaking views, is not only a 30 second climb away, the granite protrudes into the unit and a queen size bed is perched upon it.
A fire pit with lounge furniture frames the guest’s own private view of San Francisco. The hand crafted terrace is open for a barbecue. Mini-fridge, micro-wave, and coffee maker fill out a kitchenette.
Climbing gear is available for the adventurous guest if they want to explore the rock up close. Solano Ave with Peets and Starbucks is a 5 minute walk, the Gourmet Ghetto is ten. Two bus lines pass by and make Cal-Berkeley and BART just a 5 minute ride with San Francisco only 30 minutes away. The H bus is a luxurious ride complete with Wifi; without exception, the fastest and cheapest route to San Francisco.
Disponible para huéspedes
The studio is private so there is little if any interaction with Host. The space is small so we tried to arrange several exterior spaces that are exclusive to the guest. One is the fire pit area where there are two lounge chairs. (Please, no fires in summer months and unless owner is present.) The other is an exercise, meditation, yoga area near the front door of the unit. The terrace is also open to guests and you are welcome to have a barbecue there. Just ask if you need any cooking equipment.

I have lived in the Bay Area for 33 years, here at Indian Rock for the last 21. My two boys and I have created this space with comfort and seclusion in mind. The studio is tucked behind the house facing the Bay, and is very quiet. Yet, the Rock on the park side is a very public place, and on any evening, you will meet a variety of personalities, especially musicians, on top of the rock.
The secret here at Indian Rock is that on any morning, the rock is virtually yours to have a cup of coffee, meditate, or just watch the sunrise wake up San Francisco across the Bay.
If you have any questions about the history of Indian Rock, please ask. I have been privy to most rumors and facts about this fascinating place. If you want some suggestions about hikes, museums, or music, also just ask. About restaurants, there are too many to even suggest the best, but I can give you some ideas about the most unique. Most can be walked to. If there are any problems, just text as I am either home or probably 5 minutes away watching my two son’s baseball games and tennis matches.
