Welcome to the Monkey Island Co-op

We Have Two Openings at Our Co-op

Seeking a housemate (or two)

We are looking for two housemates for our group house in Berkeley’s charming Elmwood neighborhood. We’d ideally like one of them to have some maintenance or construction skills they could offer in exchange for reduced rent. This could includes fix-it and maintenance tasks around the house, ongoing yard work, and arranging additional repairs as needed.

We are seeking people who are comfortable with community living and fit well with the current housemates.

Attic Bedroom, Available Now:  This smaller third-floor bedroom is airy and quiet.  Size: 11 ft 3 in x 14 ft (158 sq. ft.)  Shares a bathroom with one other room. ($ 850/mo)
