I have lived in Berkeley over 40 years and am a Real Estate Agent and General Contractor. My sister who lives at the property is a pediatric nurse and her husband is a chef. My partner lovingly manages the housekeeping and a very high standard of attention to detail.

Scott Selmanoff purchased this condo in 1994

This North Berkeley location is convenient for all our shopping, entertainment and travel needs. In every direction there is one great treat after another. We never tire of going to the fresh bakery, farmers markets, restaurants, music and plays all within a short distance.

The backyard is very private and surrounded by mature trees and foliage. It is lovely for entertaining with friends and families and the BBQ grill is often cooking up very savory meals.

GREAT PLACE AND EXCELLENT LOCATION.

  • 5 of 5
This was the first time that we considered a vacation rental instead of a hotel. It was a great rental with everything you need for a comfortable stay and the location was great. The Bart station was less than a block away from the rental so if you didn't have a car, you could still get around San Francisco and the neighboring areas. The neighbors were friendly and offered places to eat and things to do. The place was clean and comfortable. The one assigned parking stall was a great relief because parking in this area can be quite challenging. Again, a great rental and would definitely do this again!

Owner's Response: Aloha Dean & Janis,
We are delighted that you came to Berkeley and united with your families on the mainland. Going to Bodega Bay to see where the Alfred Hitchcock movie "The Birds" was filmed was a great idea for a day trip. Buying local oysters and steak for the backyard grill was also good savory planning. Thank you for leaving wine guides for Napa and Sonoma for other travelers to use. Please feel welcome to come again to be with your families.

COMFORTABLE, CLEAN, AND FEELS LIKE HOME

  • 5 of 5
My parents have very specific requirements for the place they live: first of all, it has to be clean and tidy both for the house and the environment. Also, since any noise will disturb their sleep, it needs to be very quiet at night. Last but not least, it should feel generous with space. On a honest account this house meets all the requirements, which is a big relieve to me as it is my first time looking out for a short vacational rent. We are further impressed by the care Scott took to place some flowers to welcome our visit, the all-inclusive kitchen utilities, the comfortable beds, and most importantly the hospitality of our neighbors, Mike and Anna, who offered us a lot of good advice of good-to-try-out places and took the extra effort to find us a festive red table cloth for the lunar new year party. It was wonderful experiences for us and we hope to come back for the second, third,.. times.

CHARMING AND CONVENIENT!

  • 5 of 5
We chose this unit due to its very close proximity to the North Berkeley Bart Station. We used it frequently - even going to and from SFO. The unit is in a lovely part of Berkely - very easy to walk to a marketplace for provisions to use in the well equipped kitchen. There are MANY wonderful eateries in the vicinity and it was a great location to start our one day trek up to Napa Valley. The unit is VERY comfortable, clean, and fun! The pictures are VERY accurate. Scott, Anna, and Mike made sure we had everything we needed. They provided some thoughtful extra touches which we appreciated; wine, flowers, fresh fruit, trail mix. Also fresh coffee beans and filtered water. We, the two of us, would definitely stay here again and we would be Ok with bringing other friends or family members as there is plenty of room to spread out.

WONDERFUL WEEK IN BERKELEY

  • 5 of 5
This is a very comfortable place to spend time in the Bay area. The apartment was very clean and well stocked - even a full spice rack in the cupboard and laundry detergent etc. in the laundry - a bowl full of fresh fruit and a bottle of chilled wine. We were 4 adults - and felt the space comfortable. My adult son agreed to sleep on the sofa bed. Scott and Anna were very helpful as well in steering us towards the touristy things, the things only locals know about, the restaurants and grocery stores. They also had helpful advice as how best travel into SF. I would definitely stay there again if the opportunity ever comes up again.

WONDERFUL STAY AND HELPFUL PEOPLE

  • 5 of 5
My family of four stayed in this condo and we had a wonderful experience. Scott shepherded us in, and his sister Ana and her husband Mike made sure our stay was trouble-free. The place was clean and well-appointed, especially the kitchen. They always made us feel very welcome and didn't seem to tire too much when we asked our incessant questions. We would definitely stay there again.
