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

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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!

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.
