Well appointed studio in beautiful setting.

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with this place. From the moment we climbed the steps thru an amazing hillside garden to the view from the private patio with the owner, Steven as our guide, we knew that we had found a jewel.

All this before we stepped foot in the studio apartment! The place is spotless with every amenity we could have possibly needed. Steven even had a "welcome basket" with wine, cheese, fruit, prosciutto and yogurt, coffee and biscotti!

We had a lovely stay and will definitely stay here again whenever we are in the Bay Area.

All that I expected - and more

  • 5 of 5

A sweet little studio in the Berkeley Hills! All was as advertised on VRBO. It's very comfortable, fairly quiet, and a fantastic place to come home to after a day of exploring the neighbourhood/city/Bay area. The location is OK: about 15 min or so walk down to North Shattuck or to Solano. I can't speak highly enough of Steven's attentiveness, without being intrusive. Would highly recommend this accommodation!

Perfect view from a little porch in front of an ideal small cottage in the hills. It was great!

Beautiful studio

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our stay in Steven's studio. The studio was super clean and well furnished. Steven even stocked our refrigerator with miscellaneous items which we really appreciated. The view is wonderful. It was fun to see all the lights in the city. I would stay in Steven's studio again if it's available.
