I am a retired public health professional whose favorite hobbies include gardening, traveling, studying Spanish and doing sculpture. My husband is a general contractor who enjoys playing golf in his limited spare time. We've raised 4 children and now spend our time with our loveable Springer Spaniel.

Elaine Alpert purchased this apartment in 2005

The consistent feedback we receive from our guests, is that our flat is the nicest one they have stayed at by far. They rave about the decor, the garden and the quiet bucolic location minutes from downtown Berkeley and the

University.

We had a fantastic stay with incredible views of the bay and city from our front door. Very private, beautiful gardens, close to Tilden park, cool being in the clouds. This was our first trip to the bay area and the only thing we would have changed is being closer to town for the conveniences of shopping,eating etc. otherwise an awesome place to stay!

WONDERFUL HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
I agree with other reviewers that this rental is even more amazing than its official description. We stayed here while visiting our daughter and everything about the cottage was great – the design, the furnishings, the lighting – it all contributed to a beautiful, peaceful ‘home away from home’ to return to each day. We loved the living/dining/kitchen areas which were spacious and inviting, as well as the private patio where we sat in the sunshine and enjoyed coffee each morning. The bedroom was also pretty with a very comfortable bed. The outside garden was lovely. We enjoyed being up in the hills and took a gorgeous walk one day in the nearby Tilden Park. We hated to leave and would love to return.

SUPERB FROM SAN DIEGO

  • 5 of 5
We spent Thanksgiving week here visiting our daughter and family and hosting Thanksgiving Dinner for 6. Our two year old granddaughter felt so at home! Elaine and Tom were incredibly helpful in all ways. The house was well-equippped from top to bottom and our guests raved about the architecture, space, and comfort. We had a wonderful week and can not wait to return.

GREAT LAKES REGIION VISITORS

This cottage was what was needed, for sure. We were here for a month this year. For this reason we needed a small home, really.

A full kitchen and laundry so I could cook meals we were accustomed to and could wash the few clothes we had packed and get them back in the drawers. I looked out the back window to see Elaine's peaceful garden each afternoon as I worked at a desk by the window. Tom somehow retrieved a cap on a tube I manage to drop down the bathroom sink, as well as other fix-its. Both Elaine and Tome are very responsive to queries.

The hilly neighborhood was great to explore on foot. Recommend that you buy a map showing the many connecting footpaths and stairways. Most have names and signs at entrances. (Looking forward to coming next year to try out a path that is under construction.) We walked up to the very top of the mountain and all around the theological school. As others have suggested, you should have a car to fully enjoy this part of the community.

LOVELY QUINTESSENTIAL BERKELEY HOME

  • 5 of 5
Please note my use of "home" verses "rental". Key phrases: perfectly and newly appointed, gorgeous natural surfaces, Monet/zen garden, luxurious craftsman, timeless tranquility. Also, unusually well-supplied kitchen. A pleasure in every way. I would love to stay again.
