About Mary Kay Stuvland
I am a folklore choreographer and dancer, a traveler, a Community volunteer and an optimist. I'm passionate about many things including performing and visual arts, tradition, social justice, international policy issues, reading, international travel and meeting new people. I'm excited to become a host and get to meet you.
Why Mary Kay Stuvland chose Elmwood
The apartment is part of a quadruplex located behind the main house. It is off the street and therefore very quiet and private. It is also very well maintained and professionally cleaned.
What makes this Apartment unique
This apartment is located in the most beautiful neighborhood of Berkeley. It is near the University, the BART station and College avenue, a vibrant street with plenty of options for dining and shopping.

Location was great. Owner was nice and helpful. Bed was comfortable. Place wasn’t very clean.
Wonderful location and floor plan. Bed was comfortable. The place was superficially clean. Pots, pans, plates, glasses, and silverware were all kind of gross. Admittedly I have a bit OCD. The home was stocked with 1 roll of toilet paper, and 1 trash bag for a week. There was no sponge provided to do dishes except old used ones. The coffee pot lid was filled with some old fluid. The renter above is heard 24/7 not that they were loud or disrespectful, just the floor is thin. Parking can be tricky. It is plentiful but you will need to go to the city and purchase daily visitor parking passes for the days you will be parking. Plus the signs must be paid attention to as there is a lot of verbiage and you can’t always park even with a pass. $49 ticket cost for parking on a street sweeping day (different day for each side of street).
Neighborhood seemed very safe. Many things within walking distance.
We loved our stay in Berkeley!
The proximity to many nearby restaurants was thoroughly enjoyable and the apartment contained everything necessary for a long stay. Although it wasn’t an issue for us the lack of parking could have been a huge inconvenience. Your car must be moved every 2 hours during the day. Mary Kay proved very helpful offering dining suggestions and a great idea for BART parking. Thank you Mary Kay!
You are both most welcome! Please visit again sometime, and now and then I can also offer parking depending upon the dates and activities ;-) It was great having you as my Guests here!
Buon rapporto qualità-prezzo. Buona posizione, mezzi pubblici ottimi: bus 80/81 per il molo, 51b per BART, Whole Foods molto vicino. Tranquillo e confortevole solo male isolato dall'appartamento sopra (calpestio).
Not for more than one person
I was very disappointed in the sleeping facilities. I was told there was a cot and indeed there was, but no one could possibly be expected to sleep on it. It was very thin and springs were poking out. I left the accommodations early because of this.
To my Guest: You inquired as to the availability of additional sleeping arrangements as you felt that you and and your husband possibly could not share a double bed, which is what is available here. In two years, (& many more with private rentals!) many people at my place have comfortably enjoyed their rest as a pair on the double bed. A cot is exactly as it name implies - a folding bed with a slim mattress. Mine is almost brand-new and no springs are poking from it. I'm regretful both that you felt uncomfortable, and also that you apparently do not realize the norms of hosting, as you rated my accommodation with your 2 stars when it is clear from reviews that nearly all my rankings are 5 stars. I might ask you to well consider your future booking choices given that all information was up-front and the unit was fully as advertised. All hosts desire the comfort of their guests, but it appears that with the accommodation AS ADVERTISED that there was no opportunity for you to feel comfortable. I answered an extreme number of communiques from you in a very responsive manner in advance, and am sorry that you were dissatisfied, really it would appear from no fault of my own.
Lovely location and very kind host
