Wonderful stay in the Berkeley Hils

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time that I've stayed at this lovely place in the Berkeley Hils. As always the owners are responsive and efficient. The apartment is located close to Tilden Park and a few minutes drive from the Gourmet Ghetto and the UC Campus.

I look forward to staying again in the future. I highly recommend this to anyone who needs to be in the Berkeley area.

Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a small but very efficient, tidy space in the Berkeley Hills. The apartment is near public transportation (65/67 bus) and a short car ride to Cal, downtown Berkeley, Albany/El Cerrito. We were looking for a place in this neighborhood in order to be near my folks house and it turned out to be around the corner. It has a fully equipped kitchen, comfy bed, and extra bed (single) in the living area. It would be perfect for a single or couple with a child. We were 3 adults and it was comfortable for us. Mansour provides everything you need including a nice welcome basket of goodies, coffee, tea, etc., robes and nice towels. He was an attentive and responsive host. The next time we are visiting I hope the place is available.

Perfect place for Berkeley visit

  • 5 of 5

This is the fourth time in the last two years that I've stayed in this lovely unit. It remains my favorite place to rent on my many academic travels.

Perfectly located in the Berkeley Hills close to Tilden Park and a 3 minute drive to the Gourmet Ghetto and 7 minutes from the UC campus. The apartment has a full kitchen. The owners are a lovely couple, efficient and responsive to inquiries. Highly recommended!

Great stay for three people max!

  • 5 of 5

This place was small, but very big on details. They had everything you need for a weeks stay. We had a couple of very minor issues and contacted the owners. They responded very quickly to our great satisfaction. We noticed a small musty smell (it is the basement portion of a home). We got some febreeze and that took care of it.

They welcomed us with a greeting basket with snacks and wine - a very appreciated touch after a long flight. The place was clean and tidy, in a great neighborhood, and only blocks away from great overlooking city views. It is close to Tilden park which was a fantastic bonus to our visit.

Definitely recommend this place, will do it again if back in this area. Would rate it more than 5 stars if it were available.
