Recent Berkeley reviews
"The property is very nice and overlooks the Bay. The pictures provided are appropriate and not misleading. Parking is plentiful for 1-2 cars. The property is located in the Berkeley hills and the road to the home is narrow and a bit windey. Despite this, access is not difficult and location is ideal for a nice walk/hike. The location is very near to UC Berkeley resulting in lots of pedestrian activity. Our entire stay was great and enjoyable. Of note, the WiFi is rather slow and there is a low water pressure in the showers."

"Our stay was everything we hoped it would be, allowing us to gather far-flung family to celebrate the holidays. Everything we needed was within walking distance -- the BART, restaurants, grocery stores, and Berkeley family members. The large dining room and living room had plenty of seating, and having the backyard barbeque gave us some meal flexibility. Older home has wood floors and detail, and some interesting architectural quirks that give it a unique personality. Bonus: Quiet residential neighborhood and an assigned parking space."

"Everything about Bonita Studio is just right. A lovely studio, it has become my home-from-home in Berkeley; this was my third visit, and it was as delightful as ever. It combines a quiet and convenient location (easy walking distance to UC Berkeley, local ‘gourmet’ food shops, and bus/BART transport) with comfortable, spacious, and light and bright living accommodation, attractively furnished and with well-equipped kitchen space. Best of all, the studio opens into a private deck area for sitting, working or eating outside, surrounded by plants and flowers. The owner is welcoming and helpful, and studio is ideal for single visitors or couples. If you are visiting Berkeley, this is definitely the place to be!"

"This is our review. Easy to write. It has been a wonderful stay at 87 Southampton Ave on so many levels. It provided the space we needed so my husband and I each had a professional "office" within the apartment. It had a deck with a sunset and a view of the Bay. We packed no more than our work related materials and our clothes; the Ansaris had thought of everything else.
Other reviewers have remarked about the generosity of wine and pastries in the apartment upon arrival. Also there was a beautiful platter of fresh fruit and coffee grounds (caf and decaf) ready for coffee in the morning. There was friendship with the Ansaries in a community where we didn't know anyone other than our own cherished extended family.
Oh, we should mention that the walking trails and street sidewalks are fascinating! Homes are personal and beautiful and maintained with care. You will be within walking distance of Solano Ave and also Shattuck Ave - restaurants and other destinations.
We were here for two months in the fall and look forward to returning next year."
