Location, location, location!. Arguably one of the best places to live--anywhere. This neighborhood of tree-lined streets north of the UC Berkeley campus is defined by Shattuck Avenue and its wealth of great restaurants. The world-renowned Chez Panisse restaurant anchors the neighborhood, as does the wildly popular Cheese Board Pizza and the original Peet's Coffee. Just above Shattuck, in the lower Berkeley hills, it is possible to live in a home (that is visited by deer) with sweeping views of San Francisco, the San Francisco Bay, and the Golden Gate and Bay Bridges and still be able to walk to shops, restaurants, schools, and bus stops. Downtown Berkeley, with its art, film, theater, and music district is 15 minutes or less south of the Gourmet Ghetto by foot. Dinner at Chez Panisse, a concert at Freight & Salvage, and a short walk back home--life doesn’t get much better than this!

Ada was there to meet us and was very helpful and informative. After a bit of confusion over parking it was soon sorted out and a lovely stay was had by all.
The location is excellent if you don't mind the slight hill which was not a problem for us. We love Berkeley and would definitely stay at this property again.

Nice apartment and good service!

  • Submitted: Jul 15, 2012

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.

excellent location, good value and comfortable

  • Submitted: Jul 15, 2012
  • Stayed: Jun 2012
We ,a retired couple, stayed in this one bedroom apartment for two weeks in June 2012. The location is excellent, easy walking distance - 5-10 mins- to many restaurants, market, shops, and to Berkeley Bart -15 mins walk - for trips over the bay to San Francisco, and very close to Berkeley CaL campus. The owner was helpful and very flexible about arrival and departure times. The apartment was comfortable, clean and equipped with all we needed for our stay. It is one of four apartments in a small quiet block. It represents good value for this North Berkeley residential area of tree lined streets and beautiful houses. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it.

One block from the University of California, Berkeley, North Berkeley, also called the Gourmet Ghetto, is centered along Shattuck north of University. It is considered the birthplace of innovative California cuisine. This movement was led by Alice Waters of Chez Panisse, a restaurant that continues to thrive to this day.

And if that isn’t enough there is a weekly farmer’s market and annual North Berkeley Spice of Life Festival.

Of course, there’s no shortage of shopping in the neighborhood, with Walgreens Pharmacy, North Berkeley Wine, Vintage Berkeley (in the historic Vine Street pumping plant), , and plenty of groceries (Andronico’s and Safeway are both in the neighborhood). Stop for a coffee at the very first location of Peet’s.

Several culinary destinations have risen up around Waters’ famous restaurant, including César, the Cheese Board Collective and Cheese Board Pizza, Cioccolata Di Vino, the Juice Bar Collective and Cha Am. New, savory experiences include take out from Gregoire and Poulet, Brazillian food at Café de la Paz, a good old Jewish deli at Saul’s, cooking classes at Kitchen on Fire, delicious pastries at Masse's, cupcakes at Love At First Bite, vegan sushi at Cha Ya and Berkeley’s version of a food court, Epicurious Garden.
