Grawin House has been in our family for over fifty years. It was my home as a child. We returned to Berkeley after our children were grown and made Grawin House a family compound for three generations of our family. Now that the younger generation has moved into their own homes, we have lovely apartments to share with others.

Petra or Gary Landman purchased this apartment in 1959

The building is beautifully maintained and cared for. It is has a wonderful history and is in a great location.Here is a comment from our last guest:

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our time living at 1660 Oxford Street. From the moment we arrived we felt really at home – the apartment is generously proportioned, well furnished and has a nice homely feel. Being on the ground floor and one level was perfect for our young son, as was access to the tranquil courtyard off the dining room.

The owners were extremely welcoming and attentive hosts, though the apartment was in such good order that we did not really need to call on them at all. As a visitor to UC Berkeley the location was ideal, allowing me to walk to and from work each day – a walk that will live with me for a long time for its wonderful views of the bay. Not only that, but you’re right on the doorstep of Berkeley’s ‘gourmet ghetto’ and its wealth of restaurants, cafes and shops. Such a good selection, in fact, that we had no need to use a car for the duration of our trip.

I highly recommend this apartment – an ideal base for visitors to Berkeley and the surrounding area.

VISITING THE EAST BAY

  • 5 of 5
My husband & I were in the bay area to visit our daughter. The apartment on Oxford was a perfect place for us. We didn't have a car, so was very pleased with the location. BART, shopping and the fabulous Gourmet Ghetto was all within walking distance. The apartment was clean, comfortable and contained all the amenities of home. the master bedroom was extremely comfortable with a great memory foam mattress and linens.
Petra and Gary are great hosts and very attentive to your needs. I would highly recommend the apartment and plan to stay there again on my next visit to the east bay area.

PERFECT...IN EVERY WAY!

  • 5 of 5
My husband sand I were in town to visit our son who is at UC Berkeley. The apartment listing was very accurate...it had everything we needed and the owners were so nice...they made us feel like we have known them for years! I loved the courtyard and water fountain...so peaceful! No need for a car...we walked everywhere. The campus is a few blocks away, as well as restaurants, grocery stores and the farmer's market. The neighborhood is very safe.

There are lots of things to do. We went on a wine tasting tour through a local tour company. Rented a car and drove all through Tilden Park which is nearby. And lastly we drove to the Muir Woods National Monument about an hour's drive north of San Francisco. If you have time, that is a must see!

Public transportation is within minutes walking. Everything about the location of the apartment is convenient. We are planning another trip to Berkeley in the spring, and will definitely put our reservation in early!

THE GRAWIN HOUSE - CHARMING INDEED!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I and our 13 year-old daughter had a delightful 5-day stay at the Grawin House. The description of the apartment and complete ammenities was 100% accurate; the place was so comfortable and ready, just like home. Our hosts had even installed a printer as a convenence for people who needed to print out airline documents. The photographs did not entirely do the place justice, especially the spaciousness, homey comfort, and the lovely intimacy of the courtyard and small fountain in the back. All the attractions of the neighborhood, including the "Gourmet Ghetto" were just a leisurely stroll out the door, only 2 blocks away, and the Berkeley campus and other attractions were accessible by public transport or a nice walk. Not included in the listing was the incredible helpfulness of the owners who gladly shared their knowledge of the sights and attractions of the area, and made sure that we were comfortable and could find everything we needed to make our stay pleasant. Although the apartment is in a bustling residential neighborhood durng the day, I was never disturbed, although I'm very sensitive to noise, and I slept like a baby every night. You can easily get about without a car since everything you need is a short and very pleasant walk and the neighborhood is safe, and public transport is readily available for longer trips. If you have a car, talk to the owners about parking. They can advise you. The damage deposit was promptly refunded. What more could one want when in Berkeley! Yes, we'll be back.

The apartment is located one block from the university of California. It is a great location for visiting faculty, alumni or family of students. The neighborhood is filled with lively coffeehouses and restaurants, including the famous Chez Panisse. You can easily walk to shop for groceries at large, well stocked markets or specialty shops like the cheese board or the local butcher.

Exploring beyond the neighbor is easy too. The Bart (bay area rapid transit) station is 7 blocks away, ac transit stops with express bus service to San Francisco and the greater bay area are 1 block away. If you need a car, zip cars and city share cars can be picked up 2 blocks away or you can rent a car at enterprise rentals for a day of exploring in the wine country or other bay area sites just 2 blocks away. The apartment and neighbor is very family friendly with parks and playgrounds a stroll away.
