Great location/comfortable space

  • 5 of 5

Loved our time here, close to Cal and to great restaurants. Betsy was an amazing host patiently dealing with our many requests. My daughter and friends came to have dessert and watch a movie each evening and We were very comfortable in this homey space. We will definitely be back!

Great location, comfort, price and the hosts are super nice

  • 5 of 5

The property is bright and immaculate and has a brand new feel. It is located just a few blocks from the famous Gourmet Ghetto. I managed without a car as the Downtown Berkeley BART station was only about 20 minutes walk on Shattuck Avenue. There are also frequent buses if you find the walk too much effort. The hosts were very easy to reach when necessary and were really kind and accommodating.

Cute place - great location

  • 5 of 5

The property is a few blocks north of Berkeley's "gourmet ghetto" and about a 20 minute walk from campus. It was nicer than staying at a hotel - cute place, quiet neighborhood - at a fraction of the cost. It's a little "house" behind the house of a very nice couple with two kids. They were very communicative and quick to reply to any questions we had. We would definitely stay there again.

Very nice cottage, excellent hosts

  • 5 of 5

I stayed for a week in September and had a wonderful stay. The hosts take pride in their apartment, have furnished it very nicely, and they go out of their way to ensure that guests enjoy their stay. Will stay here again on my next visit to the area.

For the food hounds: excellent restaurants, the gourmet ghetto, etc. are within a 15 minute walk.

(I may try to add more to this review in the next few days ... meanwhile, the review by Natalia on Feb.20 2017 is on point.)

My husband and I visited this area for 5 days and this studio was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect! The studio was very comfortable and had everything we needed during our stay. We enjoyed nightly walks into Berkeley which had wonderful shops and restaurants. It was in a central location for us to spend a day in San Francisco and a day at Point Reyes National Seashore Park. We highly recommend this studio.
