Lovely Small Space

  • 5 of 5

Patty is so nice and quick to respond. The studio is in an older house, clean and has small off street parking. Space is off the back deck so no street noise. Was a great location near friends plus an easy walk to Elmwood area for coffee,etc.

Comfy, convenient and reliable - what more could I want

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is behind the main house which is located on a quiet lovely neighborhood. It is very quiet, clean and comfortable and safe. The bed is firm and comfortable and the shower is wonderful. There is a little porch outside as well. Although I didn't use the little kitchenette it was convenient. I wish there had been coffee there to use the provided pot but that little omission got me up out and walking to the coffee shops which are all of 4-5 blocks away. The Bart station is an easy walk and the Elmwood shops and restaurants are very close. I will be back!

Perfect for the sightseeing couple.

  • 5 of 5

This is perfect place for getting up and having a quick breakfast. You may want to walk 3-4 blocks and get a croissant or bagel to complement what you have. BART is just 15 minute walk away to SF but don't forget to walk Telegraph to Berkeley. Bed is comfortable. Kitchen is not set up for major meals but works for light fare.

This unit is located within my main house (with separate entrance) I also offer a stand alone cottage (VRBO #758790) that can hold 4 people. Both units can be rented for larger parties. Great for someone looking for clean, cheery, comfortable accommodations in a very convenient location.
