About Robert L.
I'm a former journalist, former lawyer and now mostly write mystery novels. I live next door on the other side of this duplex, occasionally with one of my two daughters when their busy lives bring them here. My books are all set in the San Francisco area where I've lived for the past 25 years so I've have the opportunity to describe the neighborhoods, restaurants and amazing natural settings in this region. I feel fortunate to live here!
Why Robert L. chose Northwest Berkeley
Aside from providing great value if you need two bedrooms for kids or you're more than a couple, people seem to enjoy the duplex as a place to relax when day's activities are finished. It's comfortable, airy with lots of sunlight, and is a great place to entertain - either just yourselves or with a couple of friends. Folks visiting nearby friends or relatives enjoy having a place like this to host as well.

This is a great place; very bright and clean. The host has thought of everything. The kitchen is stocked with all the essential cookware, so we were able to prepare a few meals during our stay. Check in and out was a breeze too. We will definitely be staying here again.
This is the best rental we have experienced. The owner is meticulous about stocking up on all the basic items you need from tissues to foil.
The rooms are comfortably furnished and well lit by both natural and fixture lighting.
It was very clean, very well maintained and parking is hassle free. The washer -dryer was a welcome bonus.
The perfect spot!
Bob was great, checked in the first or second day of our stay. The place is perfect, located a short walk from north Berkeley Bart, acme bakery was a daily visit, good restaurants. Very cozy apartment, nice sheets and towels (always a plus), well appointed kitchen. We’ll stay there again (family of four, two adults, two teens). Thanks!
Perfect stay in Berkeley
Outstanding property. Very clean and inviting. Loved staying here. Bob is a great host!
The house feels homey, is full function , and is in a good location. The Baravelle cafe is around the corner, Leila's cafe is nearby, and the Bart is nearby. We really appreciated the coffee, the condiments , boxes of Kleenex everywhere were appreciated. The bathroom is excellent, the mattresses were very comfortable.
I would highly recommend this property.
