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.

My husband and I spent several days sightseeing in Berkeley and this property
was in a perfect location for both walking and using Uber. Bob was extremely helpful
before we arrived ...he emailed his restaurant list and gave us an idea of walking distances.
We particularly enjoyed strolling in the evening. The variety of Southern Cal plants, especially
all the succulents, were quite interesting to us Floridians. Bob greeted us and checked on us
before we left. Loved the design style of the duplex. Hope we'll be able to return some day.
I'm happy to have hosted you on your Bay Area sojourn! I love the region and am glad to pass on tips and suggestions for a fun and tasty experience!
We enjoyed a wonderful stay in Berkeley and Robert, our host, was very attentive and kind.
A clean, cosy place with everything you need for an enjoyable stay. We really liked it and would like to return in the future;-)
Great place to stay!
Perfect place to stay for a family of four. Clean, tastefully furnished, great owner who was very responsive! It had all that we needed. A bonus is the bakery around the corner and within walking distance. Yummy bread and pastries!
The apartment was very clean and comfortably furnished. It was much more relaxing than a hotel!
This was our first experience renting a VRBO so we were hesitant about doing it but it proved to be a wonderful experience for my husband and me and our two teenage granddaughters. The apartment was roomy and offered privacy as well as comfortable common areas to visit with family and friends. There was also a small backyard with both sunny and shaded areas where we could relax and enjoy the beautiful weather and interesting foliage.
The landlord was friendly and welcoming. The apartment had all the amenities we needed and many nice touches that went above and beyond what we expected. The landlord provided a list of restaurants and shops as well as information about the area which was very helpfu. The location was very convenient for traveling to San Francisco and other cities for sightseeing.
This was so much better than staying in a hotel! I would recommend this apartment to anyone traveling to this area!
Found everything as portrayed
The house was spotlessly clean and contained all of the items that we required. Just a short 10 minute walk to the BART station and some great eateries nearby particularly in 4th Street, about 10 minutes walk. Some excellent chopping in 4th Street, nearby San Pablo Ave and Shattuck Avenue.
Robert was exceptionally understanding and allowed us a later than expected check out when we experienced a last minute medical problem.
Great place to stay!
Very nice and comfortable apartment. It had everything we needed.
