About Terri Giamartino

I have lived in Berkeley with my family for over 35 years. I have rented out an in-law unit in my own home and enjoyed meeting many people from around the globe. I have two children and work as a project manager in the health industry. My hobbies include hiking, biking and martial arts. I love to travel and enjoy helping visitors find unique and interesting things to do.

Terri Giamartino purchased this house in 1971

This property is very conveniently located for seeing the San Francisco area, Berkeley being in itself a city worth spending time in. It has a garage for those that want to have a car, but a car is not necessary since shopping and transportation is within easy walking distance.

What makes this house unique

Location, location, location! The unit is clean and well appointed making it a wonderful place to call home while visiting the bay area.

Dishes & silverware need to be washed in the dishwasher because previous tenants were not very through with the washing of the said dishes. Having said that we loved our stay. Thank you Teri!

We loved this home!

  • 5 of 5

This home was truly lovely. This was our first time using VBRO and we couldn't have been happier. This home was very spacious and very clean. The garage was large and we had plenty of room for our van. We spent the majority of the time in San Francisco but evenings were fun walking around Berkeley. I would definitely stay here again.

Great, Centrally-Located Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

When I first started looking at Berkeley VRBO's to rent, I read all the positive reviews and decided to go with this unit, and was certainly not disappointed, My wife and I stayed in this flat for 9 nights in June, visiting and spending time with our daughter who works at the university. It was just like living at home: spacious, clean, and quiet. When we weren't traveling to Angel Island, Yosemite, San Fran and Sonoma, it served as a terrific location for all the action on nearby Shattuck Ave. where we spent a fair amount of time. We will definitely stay here again next spring when we return to Berkeley for another visit with our daughter.
