WHAT A VIEW
My boyfriend and I wanted a change of scene during this shelter in place and couldn’t be happier with this property. We wanted a place to relax and just forget about everything that’s going on in the world right now. This property was perfect for that.
It was extremely clean and I am a neat freak! The bed were very comfortable, clean and cozy. Our absolutle favorite thing about this stay was the hot tub and watching the sunset over the Bay Area it was absolutely breath taking.
We will definitely be back and recommend this property to anyone looking for a little get away in the heart of the bay area !
Sparkling clean home with incredible views. Hidden Gem!
What a great home! It was sparkling clean (and I am a clean freak!) and so warm and sunny! The home is so stylish with a fun mid-century modern theme that collaborates with the home architecture (I love mid-century modern homes!). The furniture and decor is modern and comfortable. The bedrooms are large and the king beds are so comfortable! Large bathroom with bath tub and lots of hot water. The home has incredible bay views from almost every room! The outdoor patio area was our favorite. Large deck with lots of comfortable outdoor furniture. Large outdoor dining area and BBQ a well. The hot tub was magical. Looking at the bay view lights from the hot tub was the best. This area of Berkley is a hidden gem. So close to the UC campus but lots of trees and nature and wildlife around. We really enjoyed it. Cannot wait to go back. If you are considering this property I can recommend everything about it. Especially if you like bight and sunny homes and are a neat freak like me!
Great property in beautiful Berkeley Hills, BUT...
First, the highlights: the house location, easy parking, the incredible deck overlooking SF, the two main bedrooms with excellent linens and pillows, the well-appointed living room, the very appreciated bottle of wine welcoming us, that was all fantastic. However, the out of control mildew smell coming out of that main air vent on the floor in the main hallway outside of the bedrooms, is just not OK for a rental property this expensive. And mildew smell was so overwhelming in the detached third bedroom that my adult son had to sleep in the living room. One non-major issue was challenge of fluctuating water temp in the shower; it's a classic problem in an older house and it's an easy fix, but requires a plumber to come in and remove some tiles and replace/repair the hot water faucet. Resolve the mildew issue (of course, not a minor expense) and this property is a home run. Just loved this place, and I used to own a home 1/2 mile away.
Hi Jeff! Thanks so much for your stay! I appreciate your feedback on the home. I checked with my manager and house cleaner regarding your comment that the home smelt like mildew. My manager informed me that the rugs and area rugs in the home had been steam cleaned before your stay. The cleaning company was supposed to use a quick dry form of cleaning. But they mistakenly used a wet form of cleaning and the rugs were not fully dried for your stay. The manager believes that this is what was causing the damp, mildew smell that you experienced. My apologies for this! You are the only guest who has ever mentioned this problem so it makes sense that the damp rugs were the cause. But, just to be extra cautious, I have already called a heating company to find out if there is any reason why a damp smell would be coming from the heating vents. But I do feel that the damp rugs is the cause of the smell (especially seeing as how they are wool which has a strong oder when damp). And I do apologize for this! And regarding the shower plumbing, we have called out our plumber to look at the shower faucet and address the fluctuating water temp that you mentioned. Thanks again or your stay and your feedback! It's always our goal to make sure that guests are 100% happy with their stays and we look forward to making any improvements needed to do so! :)
Very cute Mid-Century
Clean, beds are comfortable and house is nicely furnished. Kitchen has everything you need. Beautiful outdoor area for relaxing or dining. Only caution, there is no AC. It’s not usually needed in Berkeley but good to know.
Soaking in the hot tub under the stars! Such a great home!
Let me start by saying what a great neighborhood this home is in! We loved how peaceful the neighborhood was. There was lots of trees, deer walking down the street, lots of birds singing. But it was still walking distance to the UC which was great for us. The purpose of our visit was to look at the University with our daughter. So the location was perfect for us! The home was beautiful and clean! We loved the views. So great! And the yard was amazing! Such a great space. We had beautiful weather and loved spending the afternoon sitting in the sun and drinking tea on the deck. Soaking in the hot tub under the stars in the eying was special as well. This place truly is a gem! Oh! And the King sized beds were such a treat! So spacious and comfortable. I cannot wait to return to the gem of a home!
