Wonderful Berkeley Studio

  • 5 of 5

This is an exceptional property, and we thoroughly enjoyed the week we spent there. It is ideal for a couple. There are spectacular views out over the Bay looking toward San Francisco. The studio is clean, spacious, comfortable, and well equipped. There is an inviting terrace with a table and chairs at the entrance to the studio that looked liked a wonderful spot for morning coffee (but the weather was a bit too chilly for us to try it). The host, Steven, was informative and gracious. We would definitely stay here again on a future visit to Berkeley, and we recommend it to others. It's a gem.

Our stay at the Boutrous family studio couldn't have been better. The studio is very much as advertised - cozy, comfortable and clean - and the kitchen really well appointed. The view of the bay and the bridges through the trees is absolutely incredible.

Steven was a great host. We arrived very late and he had left all sorts of delicious snacks and wine. We unreservedly recommend the studio and would hope that Steven has a vacancy next time we visit the bay area.

Fantastic Studio with Outstanding View

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time I have stayed in Steven's studio and it was just as great. It has everything a person could want and it is topped off with a full view of the bay and the golden gate bridge. I certainly hope to be back again before too long!

This place is really great!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week in this very attractive home-away-from-home. It has a welcoming entrance with a wonderful succulent garden and patio with sweeping Bay views; the interior is recently renovated and well-designed, with a very well-equipped kitchen and large bathroom with laundry. It takes no time to settle in to this home! I saw a description of "cozy" which may be misleading; it is small but in an efficient way, and the large windows make it very bright and airy. Its location in the beautiful Berkeley Hills is a great base for exploring the East Bay area and beyond--we've stayed in this neighborhood before and love it! Steven is an exceptional host and has thought of many nice touches; he's readily available if needed. We'd definitely return! Thanks, Steven.

Amazing treehouse accommodation! First class!!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing place. It is everything that is advertised. Very clean and comfortable accommodations. Frist class and very private. Steven is a wonderful host. He truly went that extra mile by supplying us with all the finest treats to get us started such as wine, beer, cheese, coffee, fresh cream, yogurt, fruit and snacks. There was a washer and dryer as well as slippers and housecoats for two....nice touch. Steven did a wonderful job with communicating with us before, during and after our stay. He was available for any questions and helpful if we needed anything. A lovely getaway for One person or a couple. We rented a car and found it easy to get around. We did take the bus and the Bart one day into San Francisco and found it easy to get around.

I felt like I was staying in my own little treehouse over looking the SF bay. We found it safe and in a good Neighborhood. We have nothing but great memories of our treehouse in Berkeley. We highly recommend this place to anyone traveling to the Berkeley/San Francisco Bay Area.

Thank you Steven and family for the wonderful experience.
