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.

Studio gem!

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay, my husband's first. He loved it as much as I did. This little gem has everything you need. We stayed a week this last visit and had a great time. It's in a great location and on a bus route. We were able to walk to everything we needed, including to nearby Albany which has several fabulous restaurants. The owners are close by and very kind, helpful and responsive. The next time we visit our grandchildren, we'll definitely stay here.

Best Hidden Treasure

  • 5 of 5

We love this studio and would not consider staying anywhere else. It is so comfortable and wonderful as Eli and Tal make you feel so special. We love the convenience to Shattuck Avenue and the safe neighborhood surroundings. It is truly a 5 star stay!

Perfect home base to explore the Bay Area

  • 5 of 5

Eli and Tal’s hospitality was the first of many wonderful things to impress us with our stay at their studio apartment. Eli greeted us when we arrived, showed us everything we needed to know about the apartment, and presented us with a homemade cake, candies, and a bottle of wine. The apartment is clean, well maintained, with lots of natural light. It was perfect for the two of us; situated in the Berkeley hills near the campus and plenty of restaurants, but located in a quiet neighborhood. We like to explore when we travel, and there were a number of spectacular hikes that started outside our front door. Eli and Tal’s apartment will be the first place we seek out to stay for our next trip to Berkeley!
