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.

                                                          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.

                                                          Owner's Response:

                                                          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

                                                          Margaret B.

                                                          This appartment is comfortable and spacious.

                                                          very nice

                                                          Very good location in Elmwood Berkeley and comfortable space. thank you to Mary Kay for being a responsive host.

                                                          This was a perfectly adequate apartment for my needs while in Oakland. Clean and functional.

                                                          Judy J.

                                                          This apartment was located in a quiet, safe neighborhood. The walk to downtown Oakland was less than 30 minutes, an easy stroll through a nice neighborhood. Two blocks away from the apt. is a clean laundromat, quick mart, restaurants, theatre, hospital and local shopping. I would most certainly stay here again if in the area. The landlord and the neighbors were very nice and ever-so-helpful when asked. Great place to stay!

                                                          Comfortable & Cozy stay

                                                          Somiran G.

                                                          The property is very well maintained and equipped. It is cozy and well-lit. We had a very comfortable stay and enjoyed using the kitchen as well. It's very accessible to different parts of Berkeley and is on a calm and quiet street. The only minor downside was low wifi connectivity in parts of the house. Overall, a great experience!

                                                          Great apartment and location!

                                                          Peggy F.

                                                          The apartment was cute, clean and had everything we needed. The neighborhood is beautiful with lots of walking options. We would definitely stay here again!
