We are in early stages of semi-retirement. We moved to this area because we think it is one of the most beautiful spots in the world and offers a fantastic climate.

Wonderful Stay in North Berkeley Hills

  • 5 of 5
We just returned home from a wonderful week staying in this apartment in the Berkeley Hills. We were in town with our three young children visiting friends and doing some sight-seeing. The rental is optimally located in Berkeley: it is a leisurely walk from shopping and restaurants on Solano Ave and, unlike rentals over in SF, parking is free and freely available. It is an easy jumping off point for travel around the Bay Area. I also think that it would be a great location for visiting researchers or faculty, or for parents visiting children at UC Berkeley.

Location aside, the owners (Jaleh and Kirk) live in attached apartment and are attentive and thoughtful hosts. The apartment is clean and in great condition and stocked with all the basics (pots, pans, cutlery and other cooking tools as well as spices) that one might need when wanting to eat in some evenings or mornings. While we only stayed for a week, we would happily return, and very likely try to stay for two to three weeks on our next visit.

Highly recommended; What a wonderful retreat!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in this rental during the Christmas holiday. We hosted Christmas and Birthday dinners for family members, and found the apartment to be well equipped to easily make and serve dinners for five people. It can comfortably seat six at the dining table. The owners, Kirk and Jaleh, are warm and generous; while they live on site, they are certainly not intrusive, though they were available if we did need anything (we didn't). The apartment is private, quiet, comfortably stylish, very clean and well organized. There are beautiful S.F. Bay views off the master bedroom and dining room (including a lovely deck), and it's located in a lush, green area in the Berkeley Hills that provided a gorgeous backdrop for walks and photo taking. There's lots of wildlife (birds, deer, squirrels, etc.) to watch, too. It's a five or ten minute drive to shopping, restaurants, or BART for a fun day in S.F. We're hoping this rental is available every time we visit the Bay Area! What a find!

Great holiday accommodation

  • 5 of 5
A really great apartment for 4 adults, with all mod cons, including top of the range washing machine and drier. Located in a lovely, leafy, residential area with a 10 minute downhill walk to the local shops - the walk back is very steep, so may not be suitable for people with mobility issues.

Kirk and Jaleh, the owners, live on site above the apartment, so are on hand to help with anything. After a long journey to arrive at the apartment, nothing was more welcome than a bottle of wine, bread, cheese and olives that they'd left for us.

The apartment was spotlessly clean, with 2 bathrooms and bedrooms, as well as a small veranda. If I return to the area, I'd not hesitate to book this accommodation again.

fabulous home in Berkeley

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at this home was wonderful. We had all the extras that we needed or wanted that were supplied by the owner and his wife. They were most helpful in meeting all of our needs. The space was comfortable from the couch to the chairs to the bed...all were very accommodating plus! We had a nice view, a balcony, parking for free, cozy neighborhood, inviting flowers in sitting area before entering the house. Top of the line washer & dryer, with all extras provided (washing liquid, dryer sheets, soap for kitchen & bath...hairdryer, thick nice towels, plants, flat screen t.v., and all the cooking pots, pans, coffee maker, etc.) that we needed. I would highly recommend this home to anyone heading to the San Francisco area. Thanks for allowing us to make these comments.

Really a home away from home!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband, daughter in law, son and I spend 9 days in Jalehs and Kirks wonderful House. It was much more wonderful than I expected. Jaleh and Kirk received us very, very kindly. When we arrived in the evening (we are coming from Denmark) we received a real god bottle of wine and Jaleh brought us a big dish with cheese,
bunches of grapes and bread. They cared very much for our well-being. We also cooked together one evening, so pleasant (we also meet Cirus, nice). And that evening arrived our friend Mads. He was also very warm welcoming. Everything in the apartment was so nice. And there was all what we needed. We feel that we have got friends in Jaleh and Kirk, and I really hope, that we vill come back some day. Now i haven't write about the beautiful area, where the house is. It was so nice to walk around and to look at the beautiful view of the bay. Thank you so much to you lovely people. With love from all of us!

Amazing home in the hills

  • 5 of 5
We were very fortunate to have found this home on this site. From the previous reviews and communication with the owner, we knew this would be a great vacation home for our family. We spent our Thanksgiving holiday in Berkeley visiting my younger sister who lives in the city. Our first visit to Berkeley and we were in love with the city and this home. It captures the most beautiful view of the Bay area while nestled in a private neighborhood. The proximity to downtown Berkeley and downtown Albany was a nice surprise. The apartment had all the comforts of home. The amenities that include a kitchen, two baths, washer & dryer, sleeps 6, privacy, wi-fi, unlimited parking, etc. The owner was very accommodating, he set up the crib for our son and provided a pack n play as an additional sleep/play bed. If there was anything we needed, the owner provided. Everything about this home was amazing and very family friendly! We can't wait to take another vacation in Berkeley and this home is our first and only choice to stay!
