About Scott Selmanoff
I have lived in Berkeley over 40 years and am a Real Estate Agent and General Contractor. My sister who lives at the property is a pediatric nurse and her husband is a chef. My partner lovingly manages the housekeeping and a very high standard of attention to detail.
Scott Selmanoff purchased this Apartment in 1994
Why Scott Selmanoff chose Northwest Berkeley
This North Berkeley location is convenient for all our shopping, entertainment and travel needs. In every direction there is one great treat after another. We never tire of going to the fresh bakery, farmers markets, restaurants, music and plays all within a short distance.
What makes this Apartment unique
The backyard is very private and surrounded by mature trees and foliage. It is lovely for entertaining with friends and families and the BBQ grill is often cooking up very savory meals.

Everything one could possibly need
The owners have thought of absolutely everything that a traveller could possibly need. We have never stayed in better equipped accommodation. We just kept finding more, as we opened drawers and cupboards, including books, movies and games. The rental was spotlessly clean and it was very nice to be greeted by fresh fruit and flowers when we arrived. The owner, Scott and his sister and brother-in-law, Ann and Mike were very easy to contact all through the process. Ann and Mike who live next door were always happy to answer questions and give recommendations, but were never intrusive.
The location of the property is excellent - across the street from a BART station and within walking distance of shopping and cafés.
We were visiting family who live in Berkeley so we spent a lot of time
there but we also hopped on the BART and went into San Francisco on several days. In 20 minutes or so, we were right in the middle of the city with no transfers.
We would stay there again. Highly recommended.
A Peaceful Retreat
I stayed here for a personal retreat in Berkeley, and it was absolutely lovely: clean, comfy bed, sweet kitchen, excellent location right near BART and walking distance to cafes and shops.
Wonderful Once Again
This was our second lengthy stay at Scott's property, and it was excellent once again. Last summer we stayed for a month, and this time we stayed for six weeks. We love the quiet, family-friendly neighborhood and the apartment's convenient location -- literally across the street from the North Berkeley BART. The apartment is comfortable and sparkling clean, and the designated parking spot is a great perk. The property isn't far from bustling Shattuck Avenue or the CAL campus. Wonderful restaurants abound. Having Mike and Anna next door to give us suggestions and advice was so helpful. We had a wonderful stay.
Fresh, clean, and airy!
This place was perfect for our family of five! We spent most days exploring the Bay Area, and after all of our exploring, this was a great place to come home to! Fresh clean linens, fresh fruit, and comfortable beds! My brother surprised us with a quick 2 day visit, and we were all very comfortable. Fully stocked kitchen, and a list of all the conveniences that Berkeley had to offer. Our neighbor was Scott's brother in law and sister, they were very hospitable and gave us pointers throughout the duration of our stay. I would definitely stay here again. I didn't mention that this was a last minute pick as we were cancelled at the last minute from another condo we were trying to rent. Scott was very quick to respond to my request to book, and that was just the beginning of all the hospitality. So happy we got to stay here, would definitely recommend!!!
Very clean and well appointed property maintained with care by friendly and responsive owner
Scott was a very thoughtful and considerate host. The property is very conveniently located near BART, and offered great value for the money. The home is very clean and expertly maintained. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Perfect for UC Berkeley and SF visits
After a long day of traveling, we entered this cozy duplex with fresh flowers, fresh fruit, chilled water in the fridge, and gourmet coffee to make the next morning. Very lovely to stay here. Quiet nights for sleeping, full kitchen for baking (spices and sugar and flour all there), full bathroom needs covered (hair dryer, soaps, even lotions and things you might forget), and full sized washer & dryer with laundry soap and dryer sheets! We liked the off street parking and easy steps across the street to the North Berkeley BART station. We enjoyed breakfast every day in different breakfast restaurants with our Berkeley student in town, then we hopped on the BART to explore San Francisco several different days. Ten minute drive to UC Berkeley past groceries, restaurants, drug stores, and quiet neighborhoods.
Our lovely apartment is 1/2 of a level in duplex. It is conveniently located in North Berkeley next to the BART subway system. There are many restaurants, shops, bike paths and parks within walking distance. The University of California is a short 8 blocks away. It is a lovely residential area centrally located for travelers with or without car. May of our guests come from other countries and from around the United States. One of the owners lives next door and is very quick to respond to your personal needs. We want our guests to have a relaxing and enjoyable visit and will make special accommodations as needed. Please view the GOGOBOT viewer guide for some of our favorite places to eat, shop and explore. Berkeley and the surrounding Bay Area is a treasure chest of never ending places to experience the beauty and wonder of Northern California. We invite you to read our reviews and come enjoy staying with us during your travels. We look forward to hearing from you and meeting you and your family.
