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 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 North 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.

This location sure can’t be beat. You truly are just steps to the original Peet’s, the one and only Cheeseboard, and all the rest of the Gourmet Ghetto. Great access to nearby parks and UC Berkeley. Comfortable spot. One note: The garage is deep but very narrow and short. Our small SUV just barely fit! We’ll certainly see if it’s available again when we come back.
Perfection in Berkeley
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!
Thank you Stacy for the lovely review. We are really happy you enjoyed your stay not only in our home but in our city. And thanks for leaving the house in such good condition. You are welcome back anytime!
Great house, wonderful location, responsive and engaged owners...
As the title says this is a great house to stay in...well maintained and the owners care about providing a good housing experience. You can't go wrong! Enjoy!
The property was as described and in a great area with easy access to some great eating places...
Great apartment in great location
The apartment was clean and well supplied and was exactly as advertised. We would happily stay here again.
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!
This flat is located near several food stores, restaurants and boutiques. It is only blocks from the University of California, live theater, parks, tennis courts and public transportation to get into San Francisco. A little further and you can hike in several regional parks. Visit the Hall of Science, botanical garden or golf in Tilden park. All within a few miles.
