Great location near Monterey Market and Solano
"We stayed for four nights for a family reunion and thoroughly enjoyed the location. It's easy to walk to Monterey Market, come home and cook, and sit out on the porch in the evening enjoying the sun. The neighborhood is quiet, the owners were very helpful and the apartment is in excellent condition. It was a wonderful touch that coffee, fruit and a nice bottle of Chardonnay were awaiting our arrival! I've now recommended it to others I know who visit Berkeley often."

"What a great little spot. Every morning we woke up and took a beautiful walk/hike up the hill. Having 2.5 bathrooms was so convenient for our group, no one ever had to wait. The road to get up to the condo is steep and a bit windy, but it's absolutely worth it for the view. The views from the home were fantastic and the house was incredibly comfortable. The master bedroom is a little bit tucked away from the living room and kitchen, which was really nice if anyone needed a little quiet time. We had considered other VRBO spots in the area, but I'm so glad we went with this one. In addition, Jennifer was super kind to work with and always incredibly responsive.
I highly recommend this as a wonderful place to stay in the Berkeley area."

"My husband, mother-in-law and I really enjoyed spending a week at Janet and Kee's vacation rental. The front balcony offered beautiful views of the Oakland, the Bay and City. We were close to everything, including my brother-in-law who lives in Oakland. The house was more than enough room for the three of us and was very comfortable using it as a "home base". Thank you!"

"This home was perfect for our needs. It was close to family members who live in Alameda. We took advantage of the small grocery store and coffee house with wonderful bakery, both within walking distance. The kitchen was well stocked. This was our second stay at the Boxwood House. The last time we took advantage of the peaceful back yard--this trip we didn't have enough time. Wi-Fi is available. Marti is a wonderful hostess and has a decorator's eye which shows up in the apartment furnishings."
