Our beautiful duplex home has been Suzy's home her whole life, as her family moved here in 1950. Suzy has been a life-long gardener here in Berkeley and Arun has divided his time between a teaching career at UC Berkeley and as a fashion event photographer for Getty Images.
Arun Nevader purchased this apartment in 1950
Sierra Street is a special place. All our visitors have recognized its unique hilltop beauty and serenity, a neighborhood rich in families and Berkeley tradition, feeling country-like, but within walking distance of all that you will ever need or want to do during your stay.
Having rebuilt this magical home from the ground up, it has given us the chance to create a once in a lifetime experience, which we feel every day that we are here. Sunrises over the hills, a sky of orange whispers, and sunsets over the Golden Gate Bridge, casting a warm and comforting glow upon us, birds in our trees, flowers in our garden, the sense that beauty here is timeless, as we begin to realize that we are not. Sierra Street is the perfect Bay Area getaway--whether you are coming simply to vacation, for a wedding, for your family member at Berkeley, for a conference, or for the wine country, you will find Sierra Street to be a perfect choice among many. We welcome you to see for yourself.
We recently spent 3 nights at Sierra Street. While we would echo the praises other reviewers have given, we would like to add a few comments of our own.
We arrived after a busy day spent in Santa Cruz, so were quite tired when we first entered the apartment. However, we were greeted by the sweet smell of the prolific lemon tree as we walked up the stairs to the flat. We were awake enough to notice what a beautiful place it is and felt extremely welcome by seeing our favorite breakfast offerings already in the fridge. After going out for dinner we returned to the flat and collapsed into the comfortable beds. The next morning we began to notice all the details that have gone into creating a 5-Star accommodation (we would give it 6 stars!)
Arun and Suzy have designed the perfect living space…spacious enough to (more than) comfortably accommodate the four of us, and easily six people. The two bathrooms are beautiful and the high quality of the showers, tiles, flooring, etc reflect the panache and style prevalent throughout the apartment. The kitchen has everything one could want—and more so, and the laundry room has modern and efficient machines and plenty of space to sort clothes. The living room is elegant, but comfortable, an often rare combination. Everything from the light switches to the window blinds have been done with great attention to detail. And, of course, the two balconies with their beautiful views are a delight.
We have only one regret: we wished we could have stayed longer!
Thank you so much, Suzy and Arun, for letting us stay in your gorgeous apartment…we certainly know where to go whenever we return to Berkeley. An an extra 'thank you' to Suzy for baking delicious cookies as a birthday treat for me.
An absolute treat! A very charming stay in a great location and excellent furnishings and decorations. Our only complaint if you would call it as such is the beds were a little small and on the firm side. The owners Arun and Suzy were more than accommodating and even had the refrigerator stocked with more than you could imagine for our stay! Highly recommended and we will be back!
We were so happy with this home and with the wonderful, responsive owners. There was plenty of room to spread out and enjoy the views - the front and side decks were a big hit in the unseasonably warm weather, along with the living room equipped with a nice stereo and CD collection. We found everything we needed to cook at the flat and enjoyed our walks to the Gourmet Ghetto or North Berkeley when we weren't up for cooking. The owners always tried to save us the street parking spot closest to the property, but parking was never an issue.
I slept on the futon and found it to be very comfortable and my folks enjoyed the master bedroom. Both the pull out couch and the futon were made up for us and the owners even stocked the fridge with a few basics. Thanks so much for a great stay!
The pictures on the website are accurate, but they really don't indicate how fabulous this place really is. Three comfortable bedrooms, living space and a great kitchen set up. I shared this property with 2 friends for a week while we were taking a workshop. The location and amenities were perfect.
As a frequent VRBO user, the question we always have is are there recent reviews and are they accurate. We stayed here last week and found that all of the previous excellent reviews to be right on.
The owners were very helpful and on sight if you have any questions. This was a delightful place to stay in Berkeley for 5 days. We highly recommend it!
We had a great time in Berkeley and enjoyed this lovely property so much. The apartment is well appointed, beautiful and was comfortable for our 3 generation family get together. It was especially nice to have a dining room table that could accommodate the five of us plus our son, daughter-in-law and grandson who live in Berkeley. We cooked several family meals there The front porch/deck with views of the Golden Gate was fun to sit out on, in sunny weather. The property is beautifully landscaped too.
Our hosts could not have been more gracious or responsive while communicating about the rental and upon our arrival. They had even stocked breakfast items for our first morning. It was a totally wonderful experience. Highly recommend this rental property.
Within 2 miles of the University of California, Berkeley.
