References from renters available. From one: "We traveled as a family of four from Norway. The house was practical and fully equipped for a family, and the neighborhood felt really safe, quiet and family friendly. The neighbors were all friendly and helpful. The house was beautifully decorated and well maintained with a nice garden. The garden even has a lemon tree! Everything was taken care of with well-performed house cleaning included in rent. We have great memories from our time in this house, and can recommend it to others."

From Nikhil: We had a comfortable stay at this lovely house. There is lots of space, even for large families, and the house is very well kept, with every possible amenity that we could think of, including a piano! The street and neighborhood are very quiet, but yet there are lots of shops and restaurants within a 5 minute walk. Please let the owners know if you would like to contact me for any questions.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We rented this beautiful house in Elmwood-Claremont neighborhood in the fall of 2014. Great location in walking and bicycle distance to UC Berkeley, and with a variety of shops and restaurants nearby. We travelled as a family of four from Norway, and our kids were at that time 2 and 3 years old. The house was practical and fully equipped for a family, and the neighborhood felt really safe, quiet and family-friendly. The neighbors were all friendly and helpful, and there were several playgrounds within walking distance. In addition the house was beautifully decorated and well-maintained with a nice garden. The garden even has a lemon-tree. Everything was taken care of with well-performed housecleaning included in rent. We have great memories from our time in this house, and can recommend it to others that for instance are going for sabbatical in Berkeley. The campus is a nice bicycle ride away, and there are also great hiking-opportunities in the area.
