Good neighborhood, clean and comfortable beds BUT the bathroom is tiny and needs serious remodeling.

  • 3 of 5

No outlet in the bathroom or near a mirror is a problem. Also no Kleenex or paper towels. Clear communication with the owner. We didn’t cook there but the kitchen could also use updating

Lovely place in a nice neighbourhood

  • 5 of 5

House is on a quiet street but only 2 blocks from a main street, very convenient. Rooms are of good size so there are plenty space for the 3 of us. Backyard has flowers. Beds are comfy, shower is hot and the wifi works perfectly. Love that we had no problem finding parking right in front of the house the whole week. Simple decoration but has everything we need. Small amenities like coffee, tea would be nice but there are lots of coffee place within 5 minutes walk. Had a fabulous pasta dish at the Italian place Luca Cucina on St. Pablo. And our host gave excellent directions. We had a great stay in Berkeley!

Nice bugalow in center of Berkeley

  • 4 of 5

We were in town for a wedding so it was convenient to the Botannical garden in Berkeley which was about a 3 mile ride. The bungalow is well equipped and clean and in a nice quiet neighborhood. The kitchen is sunny and has everything needed to fix your own meals. There is a nice private backyard for morning or evening sitting and relaxing. We even picked fresh blackberries from a large vine on the fence! The unit does not have air conditioning, which is not usually necessary for San Francisco area. The best part was Andreas, the owner, who we got to meet. A remote control was missing so he promptly brought us another one and he is such a nice friendly guy! We definitely enjoyed our stay!

Comfortable accommodations, convenient location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The house was perfectly sized and perfectly located for our needs (me and my husband and our 2 1/2 year old son). The price was quite reasonable after considering other nearby options. Neighbors were charming. Host was responsive and helpful. Essentials were available (washer/dryer, utensils, cooking equipment, dish soap, hand soap, towels, bedding, wifi, clothes hangers, iron/ironing board, vacuum, a folding single cot, one fan). Bring your own shampoo/conditioner. We didn't look for a hairdryer, so not sure if it's available or not.

Couples might note that one bedroom features a single bed and the other features a double bed. This was fine for us, but might not fit well for others.

Two opportunities for improvement. (1) Upon arrival, there were a few trails of ants in the kitchen. It's unclear what attracted them. They didn't worsen during our stay, though didn't disappear either. (2) The bedrooms remained mysteriously warm and stuffy, even with a powerful fan, windows open, and ~75-80 degree days/60-ish degree nights. The rest of the house cooled down readily; we're not sure why we couldn't cool the bedrooms closer to the refreshing evening temperatures. Holes in various window screens might've contributed to the insect bites we woke up with in the mornings.

All this said, we'd stay there again and strongly recommend the property to others.

We were a little wary when we drove up to the house because there was something going on a few doors down that was a little suspicious! However, once we got into the house and looked around we felt much better. Though sparsely decorated it did have most of the necessities. It was quiet for the rest of our visit! A young family lives next door, which made me feel better about the neighborhood. All in all, it was a good place for our needs. Our son lives in the Temescal area of Oakland and we were mostly over there and returned each night to sleep. We were able to find parking either right in front of the house or the house next door. Everything was in working order that we used. All in all, I would give it 3 1/2 stars if I could. It was clean and located in a quiet neighborhood.

Owner's Response: Dear Trezy, I am glad that overall you had a pleasant stay. I hope you notice though that the photos posted here on VRBO are not overstating any detail/ condition that you will find at our property. With regards to our neighborhood, I can assure you that I know my neighbors and really all of them are very nice people. Kind regards, andreas
