Great Stay for Graduation in Berkeley
We stayed for 5 nights in the apartment and it was perfect for our gathering as a family. The owners, Sarah and Joel, are very friendly and have offered this retreat with everything one could ever possibly need. The space is very clean and there are some special touches throughout. We appreciated the informative instructions, well-planned spaces inside, and the beautiful garden views. It is an easy walk to the restaurants, grocery store, and even to the BART station downtown. We were able to catch shared rides easily from the location when we needed to go further. We highly recommend this apartment for stays in Berkeley as it is a very relaxing and comfortable space to stay.
Superb apartment and wonderful hosts
My wife and I stayed at the apartment for about a month, and loved it! Joel and Sarah proved to be outstanding hosts. They were always available, and when we had a question, they responded promptly. Aside from the formal aspect of being hosts, they are really nice people, and we would not hesitate to rent this property again.
The apartment is very well furnished with new appliances and updates, and lots of natural light. The kitchen is fully stocked and you will not miss a thing. The bathroom has been completely remodeled. It''s location is perfect, with quick access to UC and grocery stores. The apartment looks over a beautiful garden (Sarah's work), and you can even get a glimpse of the bay and San Francisco from the deck. While there is no designated parking, we had absolutely no problems parking on the street, more often than not, right in front of the house.
It was truly a pleasure to stay here. We have stayed in a number of Homeaway/VRBO houses and apartments, and this apartment and the owners are a notch above all. We are happy we had the opportunity to spend some time there, and when we come back, we hope we will be able to rent the place again.
Secluded, convenient retreat
We enjoyed our weeklong stay so very much. A completely remodeled in-law unit in the north Berkeley hills, this home away from home was perfectly located for easy walking to stores, restaurants, groceries, and coffee shops, with a spacious balcony overlooking a wooded neighborhood toward the bay. The street parking is easy and we found it always available. Best of all were our hosts, Sarah and Joel, who were friendly, available, and respectful of our privacy. We couldn’t be more pleased with our stay.
Beautiful, clean, welcoming. Sarah and Joel thought of everything. Checking in and out were a breeze. Parking was easy. We visit the Berkeley area every couple of years. We no longer have to wonder where we will be staying. Thanks for the hospitality Sarah and Joel, can't wait until next time.
