Great location! Great hosts! Perfectly planned space!

  • 5 of 5

We love this area of Berkeley and the studio was perfect for the two of us. For a studio, the space is very well planned. We would highly recommend this studio for a couple or single person.

The property is beautiful. Beautifully decorated with many updates, great location with a nice view.

  • 5 of 5

Our experience at this lovely property was outstanding. The property is beautiful, it has lots of updates, is nicely decorated with many amenities . Eli greeted us and gave us a grand tour of the apartment. He baked an apple cake that was warm upon our arrival and also gave us a delicious bottle of red wine! This place sits in a nice safe neighborhood. Parking was easy - on the street. We had a lovely walk to Peet's coffee and other restaurants are nearby. I hope we can stay here again when we come back to visit my son who attends Cal Berkeley!

Cozy studio

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this cozy studio. We were warmly welcomed with wine, chocolates, and a baked treat! The unit had everything we needed and was in a great location. We hope to stay there again next time we come to Berkeley.

My husband and I were visiting from RI and had a lovely stay here in the Berkeley hills. The unit is darling and located in an ideal spot - close to Albany, Berkeley, and Oakland and the many restaurants/amenities in the East Bay. Eli was extremely responsive and we so appreciated being greeted with a lovely bottle of wine and homemade apply cake (which unfortunately we didn't have time to enjoy!). Other than an oven (the range and microwave are sufficient!), this little place has everything you need for a comfortable stay.

For those who are not familiar with the steep hills and stairs in this area, just be aware of this in the event you have any mobility issues, etc.

We would certainly stay here again and recommend the studio and the wonderful hosts!

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay. The microwave is also a convection oven! We probably forgot to let you know.

clean, well-designed, very comfortable--overall excellent

  • 5 of 5

this is a well designed up to date studio space with everything needed for a comfortable stay. Very comfortable bed and linens and several hospitable touches that make the stay feel special. Wonderful location--20 minute walk to Gourmet Ghetto area and a bus stop across street from property; lovely walks and views right in the area. All communications were timely and responsive and host was kind enough to accommodate check-in around my meetings; very mush appreciated. As owners live upstairs you will hear some walking noise and there is some street noise, but both are minimal and area is very quiet 10:00pm to 8:00a.m. Highly recommend.

Excellent stay.

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed and appreciated our accommodation here. The amenities were everything we'd been led to expect via the VRBO website. Tal and Eli, though our direct interactions were very limited, were gracious and accommodating hosts. The location was convenient for our purpose but also proved excellent for walks and jogging in the immediate surroundings, with maps and other resources very helpfully provided in the studio.
