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 all over. 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

Why Terri Giamartino chose Berkeley

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.

Perfection in Berkeley

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (2 adults, 2 kids) couldn't have been happier. The apartment is spacious and charming and the location is incredible...quietly residential yet only seconds from shopping and restaurants. I adored my morning jog around the university and a stop for coffee on the way back. Nearby grocery stores made for easy breakfasts in the morning. And a short walk to BART allowed for jaunts to San Fran when we felt like it, though we wound up spending more time in Berkeley and Oakland than originally planned, just because we were enjoying it so much. We so loved meeting and chatting with people around town and never wanted to leave! Perfect trip and perfect place to stay. Thank you!

Fantastic Locatioin!!

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was in an amazing location! 2 blocks from Gourmet Ghetto - a short walk from downtown Berkeley and Cal. The apartment was very clean and large. My only issue was the mattress in the master bedroom was too soft. Otherwise the property was great and I would stay there again! The washer/dryer was an added bonus!

Very Comfortable and Best Berkeley Location!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at Terry and Pam's rental and we will be back. We lived in the Berkeley area for 10 years and are familiar with everything it has to offer. We have also stayed at other rentals in Berkeley. This rental is the best combination of comfort and convenience in the area. You can walk to the best restaurants and shops in town, in addition to UC and parks such as the Berkeley Rose Garden and Codornices Park. Best value in town!
