Perfect location, well appointed.

  • 4 of 5

We have had lots of experience staying in hotels in the Berkeley area, so we thought we would try staying in a house this time. We're always a little leery booking a VRBO/Home Away stay but I can confidently say that Norm and Oksana were wonderful to deal with. We were not disappointed!

Norm and Oksana were very prompt in returning emails and text messages which was very reassuring. We arrived at the property rather late on our travel day (we can thank the BART for that one!) but everything was ready for us when we did arrive.

The house is on a quaint street in South Berkeley. It is quite small, but is very neat, tidy, comfy, and nicely decorated. All amenities we needed to have a comfortable stay were provided. The bed in the room on the main floor was very comfy and there was lots of space for storage of luggage and clothing.

The house is relatively old (as are most in Berkeley) but is in good shape - it appears freshly painted inside and is bright and comfortable. Given that the plumbing is a little old, the toilet was a bit finicky for us (low-flow) but nothing the (provided) plunger can't handle - yes I get that's graphic, but seriously...it's a good to know, right?

Laundry is in the basement of the home, at the rear of the house. Access is through a door on the back of the house and it leads to a cellar where the washer and dryer are. Everything required for laundry was provided but the space, being under the house, was exposed to some of the elements (including water puddling due to heavy rains the days we were there). We did not use the back yard but walked by it when going to do laundry. Patio furniture was there, but the grass could have used a cut.

The property that this house sits on has a second house in behind and we were surprised to find out it was actually Norm and Oksana's place! We ran into them a couple of times and they were very friendly. I would definitely stay here again because of price and location. We are in Berkeley every year around this time and love it so much. Thank you to Norm and Oksana for a great stay!

A wonderful place to stay when visiting Berkeley!!

  • 5 of 5

This craftsman home is clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. Whether you are touring the area or visiting family/friends, it has all the amenities you need AND is centrally located to downtown Berkeley and public transportation to many Bay area activities.

Since I was visiting my son, I was thrilled to be able to invite them to "my place" for dinner on several occasions and we comfortably accommodated 5 guests for a BBQ in the spacious backyard. Everything you would need in the way of kitchen equipment is there.....no worries!!!!

The owners were great......friendly, helpful and accommodating! I will certainly stay here when I return to Berkeley!!!

Would recommend!

  • 4 of 5

The property was exactly as posted on HomeAway. It was convenient to the center of Berkeley (about a mile from Shattuck) - a nice walk, and in a nice quiet neighborhood. The homeowner was responsive to any questions we had. Would definitely recommend, and would not hesitate to stay there again.
