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!
Great place to stay!
Very nice and comfortable apartment. It had everything we needed.
It was a pleasure meeting Robert L.
His place in North Berkeley was a comfortable home away from home!
We recommend it.
What a gem!! Very well appointed with everything you need. Wish we had found it 4 years ago when our daughter started at Berkeley.
The bungalow was clean, cozy, well-appointed and centrally located. Bob was quick with responses to my communication. We don't have one complaint. This property was perfect for our visit to Berkeley.
Comfortable, Convenient and Relaxing
We came for a visit to see our son in Berkeley. It is a cozy, confortable duplex in a nice neighborhood and convenient to San Pablo Ave. Rob was very attentive and dropped in to make sure our stay was going well. This duplex wasn't far from UC Berkeley and convenient to several restaurants, cafes and stores.
The duplex was comfortable and well appointed and stocked. It is airy and cheerful. Would highly reccomend!
