MINUTES TO U C BERK OR DOWNTOWN, NEW STUDIO APART ON BUS LINE

Berkeley Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

A queen size bed with a brand new Comfort Foam Mattress beckons you in this totally new, spacious ground floor studio apartment in an architect designed home. The large, fully carpeted bedroom/sitting room, with a pleasant eating space, offers views of the bay. There is a walk in closet, and a dresser for your belongings.

The unit has a separate entrance with off street parking and you can relax on the small porch with your evening wine while enjoying the sunset over San Francisco Bay.

A brand new kitchen includes a refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher, smooth top cooktop, and microwave/convection oven. The bathroom features a large tiled shower with non- stop hot water and sink.

The location is amazing. A 25 minute walk down the hill puts you at the north entrance of the UC Berkeley campus, The #65 bus, which stops across the street, connects to the Berkeley BART station for service to San Francisco, Oakland, Orinda, SFO, OAK, or carries you up the hill to the Lawrence Hall of Science

By auto, it is a 10 minute drive to downtown Berkeley, or 20 minutes into SF.

This is a perfect short-term rental for a visiting professor, a couple or a small family that wants to experience all that the Bay Area has to offer.

What can I say about Berkeley? It is home to one of the world's great universities and is known for the high concentration of fine eating establishments including Chez Panisse by Alice Waters, the Cheese Board Collective, as well as the first ever Peet's Coffee & Tea Shop. Sidewalk cafes, bakeries, coffee houses, wine shops, boutiques, artisan home decor, and flower stands all lend the area a European ambiance. Fourth street has fine shopping in a variety of stores.

Berkeley also features two major theater companies as well as numerous small theater groups, symphonic and chamber orchestras, Cal Performances, several movie houses, and museums.

Come and enjoy!!

East - West, Berkeley is Best

The east coast owner moved west 5 years ago, renovated her aunt’s house in Berkeley and has truly fallen in love with her home and all that Berkeley has to offer.

A retired Landscape Architect, I love to garden and am currently trying my hand at watercolor and pastel portraits.

I love to travel but always love coming home to Berkeley.

Jean Holmes purchased this apartment in 2006

There is so much to do in this area!! I love the theater, hike frequently in many of the nearby parks, and take classes at the university whenever possible.

Location, location, location! The public transportation is convenient, and UC Berkeley is a 25 minute walk down the hill.

QUIET LUXURY!

  • 5 of 5
This studio combines luxurious comfort in a unique, but yet accessible, part of Berkeley. It's located close to everything in Berkeley but it isn't difficult to travel further around the Bay if that's your wish. I basked in the quiet and found it an unexpected respite in the midst of the myriad reasons I came to the area. I anticipate using it again as a "home base" when I return on my many trips to the East Bay Area. Everything is as the welcoming owner, Joan, describes above and much, much more! Book it, you won't be disappointed. Enjoy!

LOVELY, LOVELY, LOVELY

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed in this delightful, roomy studio for several nights while visiting family. All the amenities were up to and/or beyond our expectations. The host, especially, was warm and welcoming, happy to provide insight and information on the area, but unobtrusive, and even stocked the kitchen with coffee, milk, juice, snacks, etc., prior to our arrival. We certainly plan to return!

COZY NOOK

  • 3 of 5
A comfortably appointed studio with wonderful views of the bay. Drive is very steep and parking space very small so have a tiny smart car or be fit enough to hike up from the street. I didn't mind the walk and parking was easy to find on the street. There is plenty of room to drive up and drop off or pick up passengers in front of the studio. Jean was a kind host we wanted for nothing. It was easy to get downtown or to the freeway. Would recommend this place for one or two people who like to walk or bike, lots of great parks close by. We stayed here for business and to visit with nearby family.

Owner's Response: Hi Margaret
Thank you for your kind review and I enjoyed having you and your mother. I would like to say, however, that I have had many renters park vans in my space without trouble. I am sorry that it was not large enough to accommodate your truck.
I hope that you had a safe trip home.

LOVELY STUDIO

  • 5 of 5
Very comfortable, clean and convenient studio -- perfect for our short stay in Berkeley and San Francisco. As others have noted, our host was very helpful and made sure we had all we needed, and yet completely respectful of our privacy. Tasteful apartment in a beautiful neighborhood! We hope to stay here again!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

  • 5 of 5
The studio apartment is very comfortable with all that we (a couple + 4 year old) needed for our 5 day stay. The area is beatiful and very nice and the studio is very conveniently situated for downtown and UC Berkeley. The studio has an amazing view, nice neighbors. The best of it all was the host, Jean, who was extremely helpful and attentive and really did all she could to make it a great stay for all 3 of us. We highly recommend this and would definetely come back another time.
