Berkeley Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, sleeps up to 4 people

Neat and sunny furnished one-bedroom apartment with full kitchen, separate dining and living room, 32' flat screen TV, satellite service, local telephone service, wireless Internet, laundry and courtyard. Fully furnished with housewares, utensils, linens—everything you need to live comfortably from the moment you arrive. Apartments available for short- and long-term rental.

The apartments are located one block north of the University of California, Berkeley campus and the shuttle bus to Lawrence Berkeley Lab. Walk to grocery stores, shops, banks, post office, public transportation and Berkeley's famous 'Gourmet Ghetto.' Only minutes to San Francisco and other tourist attractions.

Berkeley Shopping Districts: Berkeley is a lively marketplace with an atmosphere wonderfully conducive to the art of shopping. Here, shopping is not a passive, enclosed-mall experience - instead it's an interactive, outdoor-oriented activity where window-shopping and walking complement the excitement of discovery.

Gourmet Ghetto: NORTH BERKELEY 'Gourmet Ghetto'?The restaurants, boutiques, and galleries along Shattuck Avenue and Vine Street in North Berkeley emphasize unique, artisan-production, and it's bounty of sidewalk cafes, flower stands, and fine food purveyors lend the area a European ambiance.

Telegraph Avenue: TELEGRAPH AVENUE- Historic Telegraph Avenue, adjacent to UC's central Sproul Plaza, is a center for culture, intellectual pursuit through its many independent book stores, and diversity. Telegraph also features world-famous music stores and vintage clothing stores. Some of the city's best ethnic dining is available just a few blocks south of Sproul Plaza right on Telegraph.

Definitely a winner in my book

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 12, 2009

Lots of space and sun in this apt. We loved the view (yes, there is a small view from the 1st floor apartment) towards San Francisco and the palm trees outside from the couch every afternoon. We stayed here two nights in March 2009 after a two months journey and the location of this place made it possible to go sightseeing in Berkeley by foot in the morning, swing by to relax a couple of hours, and go out for dinner in the evening, fantastic.

Another great thing was that Ada the owner was very helpful and flexible with us.

The kitchen has all you need and more, though we didn't use it much with the Gourmet Ghetto so close. Heaters made the temperature comfortable. This is an old apt - some might find it a little worn out or old fashioned (all furniture is new though) but we kinda liked the feel of an old Berkeley place. I give it four stars, to earn the five stars, in my opinion, it would need a renovation and a king size bed in the bedroom in stead of a queen.

Owner's Response: Dear Louise,

Thank you for your very nice review, you are right the building is "an old lady", 1928, just like many of the dwellings in North Berkeley and around the University.

It gives me great satisfaction to know that your time in Berkeley was pleasant and hope to see you again.

All the best,
Ada

We really enjoyed our stay at the Oxford Street Apartment. The place is charming, clean, comfortable, and spacious. The decor is tasteful and the apartment is furnished with all necessities. Convenient location, safe neighborhood. The manager, Ada, was wonderful and extremely helpful. Highly recommended. We have already booked the place for another stay!

Everything you need

I stayed in apartment 1701 for a month while working at the university and waiting for my long-term rental apartment to be available. It is a lovely place furnished with everything you could need to feel at home. Just one block from the university, and with a bus to Tilden park stopping right outside the door, the location is perfect. Ada was friendly and helpful. The only thing I would change is the shower, which gave a rather pathetic dribble of water, despite multiple spray settings.
Owner's Response: Dear Aline, thank you for your review. I am sorry about the shower, and wish you had let me know about the water flow. Sediment accumulates in the filter and that restricts the water flow, if I had known I would have removed the shower head and flush the sediment, that normally solves the problem. With warm wishes, Ada.

VERY comfortable

I've recommended this place to all my friends who might visit Berkeley. It was very clean, spacious, had all the facilities (kitchen, bedroom, living room) that one might need. Ada (landlady, who was lovely and accommodating) even had a high chair for our toddler! The only negative thing was the creaky wooden flooring and also that you could hear the upstairs tenets walking around - but that's the nature of apartment living (even the case in hotels). All in all, It was more comfortable than a hotel! We would definitely stay here again when we're in town.

Nice apartment and good service!

The apartment was clean and well-maintained. It was well-equipped with household appliances and an entertainment system. Everything matched the description and the pictures. The owner provided good customer service. We had very nice and helpful contact and good communication with her.
The location is good, too; it is close to the BART Station, and there are various stores and plenty of restaurants in the area.

We really enjoyed our stay and would certainly recommend this property to a friend or relative.
