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."

"We highly recommend this rental! Our recent trip was the second time that we rented from Kirk and Jaleh. The first time we rented the smaller apartment and this time the larger one since we were having relatives stay with us. When we arrived, once again, Kirk greeted us and showed us around the apartment. Kirk is very considerate, gracious, and friendly and even had a gift basket of wine, bread, cheese, and olives waiting for us. Kirk also provided information about local events that he thought we would enjoy. The apartments are private, quiet, comfortably stylish, immaculately clean, well organized, and had everything we needed, including a washer and dryer. Also, high quality bathroom and laundry supplies were provided. It is a fabulous home away from home! The property itself is outstanding and the location is excellent! It is in a quiet and safe neighborhood, free parking, plenty to do, and close to everything. From the deck we watched the deer and birds and it was very peaceful. We are looking forward to our next CA vacation and renting from Kirk!"

"The upper flat worked well for us and our dog. It's walking distance to 4th St area and N. Berkeley Bart. Restaurants and coffee shops are convenient.
The street parking is variable. Steps to upper unit are fairly steep."

"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."
