Welcome to the Monkey Island Co-op

We Have An Opening at Our Co-op

Seeking a housemate!

We are looking for a housemate for our shared home in Berkeley’s charming Elmwood neighborhood. We are seeking people who are comfortable with community living and fit well with the current housemates.

Some maintenance or construction skills would be ideal, but are definitely not a requirement. This could include fix-it and maintenance tasks around the house, ongoing yard work, and arranging additional repairs as needed.

About the Available Room

Center Second Floor Bedroom, Available Now:  This large bedroom on the 2nd floor faces south, and also has an east-facing window for morning sun..   Room dimensions: 11’6″ x 16’6″ (190 sq. ft), plus a closet.  Shares a bathroom with two other rooms. ($1075/mo)  

All utilities (yes, high-speed internet) are included. In addition to rent, each resident currently contributes $100 a month toward basic foodstuffs (oils, grains, spices, etc.), household supplies, and twice-a-month professional housecleaning.  

Application Process

Fill out the questionnaire here. Please drop us an email at info@2839ashby.com when you apply, we don’t always receive notifications of new applications. We will review applications as they come in. Top candidates will be invited to visit the house and meet the residents; there will also be a virtual interview with the co-owners. We look forward to hearing from you!
