Berkeley is a Fun Place

  • 3 of 5
This lovely home is in the hills of Berkeley in a very nice neighborhood, handy to Rockridge & Berkeley shopping. It's perfect for day trips to many wonderful places, i.e. SF, Napa Valley, etc. Parking on the street was never a problem. We were there 3 mo. Jan/Feb/March 2012.
The long stairway alongside the house, has no railing, so this is not a good rental for anyone with mobility concerns.
There is a lovely, furnished patio as you reach the bottom of the steps. Large windows in the apartment face the patio, and a small view of the water, sunsets and night lights of San Francisco. Windows in the apt. face W. & S. so the apt. is very sunny.
Inside is a living room/dining room with simple, comfortable furniture. We loved having a DVR with the TV. There were no drapes on the triple sliding glass door, so we felt a little like we were in a goldfish bowl with people on the high deck of the house next door. There is no heat control in the apt. so you are at the mercy of whatever heat comes from the family furnace above. As we all know, heat rises, so overall, it was inadequate. It was warm in the kitchen, and very cold in the rest of the apt. We used a space heater and a wool blanket in the living room every night and morning (winter).
The bedroom had a closet, dresser and a double bed that was smallish, but SO comfortable. The bathroom had no counter with the sink, and a small, free-standing cabinet to put things. We missed not having towel bars. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking and a wonderful washer & dryer at one end. The stairway in the kitchen led to the family home above us, and there was no way to lock it from our side. The family has 2 young daughters and hardwood floors, so there was quite a bit of noise in the apartment from that, especially in the early morning when we were still sleeping. The owner, Heather, was fabulous and gracious. Winter 2012 the rent was a lot lower, thus our opinion that it was a good value.

Owner's Response: Hi Jeanne,

We have completely renovated the apartment since your stay last winter including removing the carpet and refinishing the hardwood floors, updating the bathroom, installing new dual pane windows to help keep the heat in, new window treatments in the living room, and more. We have also purchased a new queen size sleeper sofa for the living room with down cushions, and a new large flat screen TV. I mention all of this because your review no longer accurately describes the apartment. We certainly hope that current and future guests will have a five star experience.

Thank you! It was a real pleasure having the two of you for the winter months.

Best,
Heather

Very pleasant

  • 5 of 5
We rented this property for one week and it was an excellent stay for the price. Beautiful view, good privacy, and everything we needed to function for a week. We cooked, laundered, had friends visit and were able to walk to the BART, the grocery, restaurants (down by the BART), shopping and to Berkeley. The owner was personable and prompt in her responses to us. When we had a change of plans on our arrival, she was very accommodating. The apartment is not fancy, and you need to be mobile to get there as it is down steps, but it served our needs well and the price fits. You do have to walk up a significant hill to reach the apartment if you are on foot so....be in shape or ready to get in shape. We'd recommend it.

Thanks a lot

  • 5 of 5
The apartment is wonderful, wide and well-equipped. I went to Berkeley with my four year old daughter. The owner Heather lent us a lot of toys. She is really helpful. My daughter was very happy and relaxed as she was at home. The view from the balcony is excellent. We enjoyed the view in the morning glow, sunset, and also the night scene. There is a freeway nearby and it is very easy to access the freeway. Walking to UC Berkeley was quite tough for my daughter. So we took bus number 49 to go to center city. The bus stop is 10 minutes walk from the apartment. My friends who visited me at the apartment asked me how I had found such a nice apartment. If I have another chance to come to Berkeley, I will rent this apartment again.

The apartment is very nice, well-maintained and clean, you will find everything you need. The owner Heather is charming and helpful. I felt like at home and enjoyed the wonderful bay views and the garden. Because I had a rental car and my son living in Berkeley, we visited a lot of places in California. But when I went to San Francisco, I parked the car at the near BART station (1$ a day) Rockridge, only 25 min to SF by Bart. You could go to Rockridge on foot easily where you find some shops as well. If I come to Berkeley again, I will rent this flat.

Beauty In Berkeley

  • 5 of 5
My fiance and I stayed here last week and couldn't have been happier. Heather was there to meet us upon arrival and we where pleasently surprised as the unit was more spacious in person, than in the photos. The price is fair and it is an added plus there is no cleaning fee. Just a walk away from the Bart and the food in Rockridge is AMAZING! This getaway is great if you're a starving student. Thanks Heather!
