Homestays By the Bay

Let us pamper you for a few days, a few weeks, or a few months when you stay in one of our comfortable and affordable vacation homes or furnished rooms in San Francisco's East Bay.

Derby Creek Guesthouse

Rent the whole guesthouse for your group, or spend a few nights in our private guest rooms, in this beautifully restored and decorated, immaculately clean, 1908 Craftsman home near University of California at Berkeley. 

Just steps away from grocery stores, cafes, cinema, shops, banks, and UC Berkeley campus activities, you couldn't be better located. The bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry facilities are modern, fully equipped, and immaculate. Homestay By the Bay is perfect for visiting scholars, traveling executives, and families seeking a clean, quiet, well-appointed home away from home while vacationing or working in the Bay Area.

When you rent a room, you will enjoy free organic breakfast, complimentary hot and cold beverages all day, plush towels and down bedding, and full-house privileges, plus all cooking equipment, utensils, and other conveniences of home. Wi-fi, breakfast, and basic toiletries are provided free. 

Whether you're feeling sociable or private, you'll be completely at ease here. You can quietly sip an early morning cup of tea at a table in your room, relax on the porch as the fog rolls out, gather with the family around the garden table, or join other guests in the dining room for friendly conversation.
