Recent Berkeley reviews

  • Wonderful Stay in North Berkeley Hills

    "We just returned home from a wonderful week staying in this apartment in the Berkeley Hills. We were in town with our three young children visiting friends and doing some sight-seeing. The rental is optimally located in Berkeley: it is a leisurely walk from shopping and restaurants on Solano Ave and, unlike rentals over in SF, parking is free and freely available. It is an easy jumping off point for travel around the Bay Area. I also think that it would be a great location for visiting researchers or faculty, or for parents visiting children at UC Berkeley. Location aside, the owners (Jaleh and Kirk) live in attached apartment and are attentive and thoughtful hosts. The apartment is clean and in great condition and stocked with all the basics (pots, pans, cutlery and other cooking tools as well as spices) that one might need when wanting to eat in some evenings or mornings. While we only stayed for a week, we would happily return, and very likely try to stay for two to three weeks on our next visit."

  • You'll want to return. Wonderful stay.

    "We spent 8 nights in the apartment during our trip to the Bay Area. What a fantastic choice we made. The apartment exceeded our expectations, which were already high after reading previous reviews and seeing the photos on the website. Excellent communication with the owners before we arrived, whilst we didn't meet Nancy, as she was away, Linda was extremely helpful and very friendly. Good kitchen space which meant we could cook, and a comfortable living area to relax in the evening with a plentiful choice of TV channels, including sports channels. Bedroom a good size with a lovely closet. Also a nice patio area outside. Linda and Nancy really make sure that the apartment is as nice as possible. Our main purpose for the trip was to see San Francisco, a 20 minute Bart ride away (easy 5 min walk to the Bart station) but we really enjoyed Berkeley. Don't miss the opportunity to walk to and climb the top of Indian Rock, a spectacular view. Thoroughly recommended for a couple who are looking for apartment instead of a hotel, we really felt at home here, and if we are lucky enough to get the time for another trip to the area would have no hesitation in staying here again. Thanks to Linda and Nancy for helping to make the trip an unforgettable one."

  • 2nd stay...great experience!

    "We recently returned from a trip to Berkeley where we stayed at the North Berkeley Retreat! This was our 2nd summer in California and the 2nd time we had stayed at the retreat for a week. It is in a great location, close to everything we wanted to do and close to our family. Having a laundry room at our disposable was a huge asset, as my husband and I were traveling with our 2 young children. When we return to California for a 3rd time, we will definitely check with the North Berkeley Retreat first about availability."

  • Wonderful house + excellent location + amazing view = happy vacation!

    "Our time spend in the Julia Morgan house on Panoramic Hill was magic! Imagine yourself set free in your eccentric great aunts home full of books, art, and great music. I found myself spending hours exploring the vast, beyond mainstream book collection in every room in between gazing out the windows watching the turkeys frolic with the squirrels and looking at the amazing city views. My young teens found the record player in the dining room with the huge collection of albums and our weekend was spent with them discovering music such as the Beatles and more. Evenings were spent lounging in the living room having meaningful conversation in front of the panoramic sunsets. Lifelong memories were made here that lovely long weekend! Our hostess went beyond for making sure we were comfortable and cared for. Couldn't ask for a better situation!"
