Room for Rent: SANTA ROSA, CA (North Bay, Sonoma County)

Looking for a tenant to rent a room in this 2 bedroom duplex:

A little about us: We are a married couple in their late 20s with no children. I am a registered dietitian working in Sonoma, and my husband works for Santa Rosa Junior College. We're runners and I am also a triathlete. We like to play games, we're both addicted to our computers, I am a social butterfly and my husband is an introvert.

We've lived here for 6 years and are very happy with the place. It is 2 miles from Annadel and Spring Lake, and about 6 miles from the junior college. A runner or mountain biker would probably most appreciate our location so near to Annadel. We would love to have a roommate who enjoys an active lifestyle as we do!

The place is fully furnished except for whatever bedroom furniture the tenant might need, but we would be open to using better living room furniture and getting rid of ours.

There is a backyard, a garage (for storage, not a vehicle), a dishwasher, and washer/dryer. The house has hardwood floors and plenty of space. There is one bathroom that we would all share. Kitchen appliances include: refrigerator/freezer, electric stove/oven, microwave, crockpot, coffeemaker (single use), toaster, rice/vegetable steamer, and use of any utensils. There is plenty of street parking, and one car space in the driveway. We currently share one car, but will eventually own two.

We have one cat:

No other pets, please.

We are charging $550/month plus 1/3 of the utilities (no water/garbage). This includes:
- Wireless DSL internet with AT&T
- Local phone line with AT&T
- Gas/electric with PG&E (no A/C)
- No cable TV at this time, but open to negotiations

We will also require a $400 deposit and two references upon application. There will be a 6 month lease, with month-to-month following the 6 month period.

Please comment or email gonzostar AT gmail DOT com if interested. We would love to meet you!

1 bedroom apartment sought for June in East Bay

My fiance and I will be moving to the east bay from Massachusetts at the end of June, due to my job relocating to Richmond. My fiance will be working in Berkeley. We're looking for a one-bedroom apartment in a safe area within a 40 minute commute, $1100 or less, and a lease that starts any time between June and July. We'll be in the area this week and we're hoping to see some apartments while we're out there. I've noticed most landlords in the bay area only require tenants to give 30-days notice if they're vacating, which I find kind of weird. I've never lived in any apartment that required any less than 2 months notice...It makes finding apartments long-distance very limiting and difficult! I hope someone can help.

We also have an indoor cat. He is awesome and well-behaved. We are quiet, young professionals. Non-smokers. Flawless rental history and credit.

Any offers? Know of any vacancies in that time frame? You can either comment here, or email me:

1. Where do you live now? Easthampton, MA
2. How much do you pay for rent? $675. We're also used to paying an extra $200+ for painful Massachusetts electric heat bills for half the year.
3. Where do you want to live? Alameda looks the most promising for us, but we're very flexible. Any place safe and within a reasonable commute to both Richmond and Berkeley is something we'd consider!
4. How much are you wanting/willing to pay for an apartment? $1100 max, maybe a little more if utilities are included.
5. If you are in the Bay Area what cities/neighborhoods should people avoid/look into? I'm not in the Bay area, but I know we're not interested in crime-ridden areas and anywhere next to an oil refinery. We are not big on living in the middle of an urban jungle either.

Thanks in advance!

$950 [Berkeley] Room available in NEW downtown complex near UC, library

My roommate has moved out and I need to find a new roommate until my lease expires in July. The room is in Library Gardens, a beautiful new apartment complex located in downtown Berkeley, right next to the Berkeley Public Library. The room is 8 feet by 10 feet and is unfurnished, although I do have an extra desk you could have if you wanted. The apartment gets a lot of sun and opens up onto a beautiful patio. The rent is $950 with a $1000 deposit. There's coin laundry on the premises, the complex is wheelchair accessible, there's also a mini park on the premises. The apartment has an electric stove, microwave, garbage disposal, and dishwasher. Cable internet and garbage are included. I also have an ice-cream maker and will share my ice-cream with you. :) Pets are welcome, but please no smokers.

I am 23, female, open-minded and queer-friendly, and a student at UC Berkeley. I am a non-smoker, no drugs, pretty clean, but a bit of mess doesn't bother me. I have a chronic illness so I am not a big partier, I spend most of my time studying or sleeping. I also have a dog who is quiet and also very lazy.
