Property description

Neat and sunny furnished one-bedroom apartment with full kitchen, separate dining and living room, 32' flat screen TV, satellite service, local telephone service, wireless Internet, laundry and courtyard. Fully furnished with housewares, utensils, linens—everything you need to live comfortably from the moment you arrive. Apartments available for short- and long-term rental.
The apartments are located one block north of the University of California, Berkeley campus and the shuttle bus to Lawrence Berkeley Lab. Walk to grocery stores, shops, banks, post office, public transportation and Berkeley's famous 'Gourmet Ghetto.' Only minutes to San Francisco and other tourist attractions.

Berkeley Shopping Districts: Berkeley is a lively marketplace with an atmosphere wonderfully conducive to the art of shopping. Here, shopping is not a passive, enclosed-mall experience - instead it's an interactive, outdoor-oriented activity where window-shopping and walking complement the excitement of discovery.

Gourmet Ghetto: NORTH BERKELEY 'Gourmet Ghetto'?The restaurants, boutiques, and galleries along Shattuck Avenue and Vine Street in North Berkeley emphasize unique, artisan-production, and it's bounty of sidewalk cafes, flower stands, and fine food purveyors lend the area a European ambiance.

Telegraph Avenue: TELEGRAPH AVENUE- Historic Telegraph Avenue, adjacent to UC's central Sproul Plaza, is a center for culture, intellectual pursuit through its many independent book stores, and diversity. Telegraph also features world-famous music stores and vintage clothing stores. Some of the city's best ethnic dining is available just a few blocks south of Sproul Plaza right on Telegraph.
