Place to Explore Berkeley!
"Stayed at Bonita for 4+ months while I relocated to Berkeley from the East Coast. Was a great location to explore the city. One can get anywhere without a car, however, there is a parking space with the apartment which was very convenient in that neighborhood. There is a deck that faces the San Francisco bay. The sunset is amazing from the view as well as breakfast our doors in the morning. The place has a big yard for a dog, ours was always roaming around, very happy. This is a wonderful place too explore Berkeley for either a short or long stay!"

"We spent one month staying at the Kiwi Cottage in August and only have good things to say about the house and the owners. The house is quiet and surrounded by a beautiful garden. It is very well appointed with a comfortable bed and good furniture that is both functional and attractive. The owners couldn't be more helpful and made an effort in getting us oriented, recommending restaurants, food stores, etc. They were also very generous and let us take basil and cucumbers from the garden, and gave us some salmon that they recently caught locally. We very much recommend this very charming house to other visitors. It was a pleasure dealing with the owners and we appreciated their hospitality and the thought that they put into in designing their lovely house."

"We've stayed here twice. The house is huge and has a nice backyard. Big kitchen and dining room. Clean and well equipped. Lots of toys for the kids. Decorated with style. Great Berkeley location. Only downside is the car scraped the driveway when backing out (which we eventually figured out.) If we need this much room again, we would definitely stay here."

A perfect "home away from home" for visiting our Berkeley student.
"My husband and two sons visited Berkeley for our son's graduation from Cal. How we wish we had known about this jewel in the Berkeley hills for all of our previous four years of visits!! Kirk and Jaleh's apartment is lovely; exceedingly comfortable, immaculately clean, beautifully decorated, and a great location. Every amenity is provided for. There is a lovely balcony with a table for "al fresco" dining, and a full-sized washer and dryer as well. We were even greeted with a bottle of wine and a tray of pastries on our arrival, (a welcome sight after driving 8 hours from San Diego). The house is conveniently located close to U.C. Berkeley, and is a short drive over the bridge to San Francisco. There are lovely parks and walking paths in the hills around their home, and we saw deer along the street in front of the house! Indian Rock is only a few blocks away- a great place to watch the sunset. There are also excellent restaurants within walking distance (if you don't mind walking hills), and an upscale grocery store called Andronico's a few blocks away where we shopped for the meals we cooked in the apartment. The only suggestion I have is to prune the trees behind the house to reveal that million dollar view of the bay and San Francisco. Otherwise, the apartment could not have been more lovely. Thank you, Kirk and Jaleh, for your wonderful hospitality."
