An very special oasis in a wonderful neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We spent Christmas week at this inviting apartment, cooking Christmas dinner and exchanging presents. Its a warm and welcoming place...comfortable beds, updated bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen, beautiful and elegant furnishings (with owner's art), spotlessly clean, fast internet, walking distance to Whole Foods and charming cafes, BART and UC Berkeley. The lovely owners, who gave us a thorough and friendly orientation to the apartment, even provided us with a daily parking pass to allow us to park on the street in front of the apartment. We throughly enjoyed our stay and its our first choice in Berkeley in the future.

Unbeatable!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 fantastic weeks in the Elmwood Rest Stop.

The location is as good as it gets. The Elmwood neighborhood (and just a few blocks further, the Rockridge) is full of interesting shops and restaurants and umpteen places for a coffee and a morning bun. BART is nearby and you're on the Bay Bridge in just a few minutes.

The apartment is fantastic. It's pristine and comfortable and very spacious. The main bedroom has a certain luxury with a tiled fireplace, bay windows, and 2 walk-in closets, and the kitchen is perfectly well-equipped for even serious cooking, and I was surprised by niceties like cloth napkins and napkin rings and serving pieces, some handmade by the artist-owners.

The owners are lovely. They live onsite and are helpful and responsive but never intrusive. The pride of ownership in what was once their residence, and the care they take in maintaining it for guests is evident.

Well equipped and comfortable, nice neighbourhood

  • 5 of 5

We experienced three wonderful months in this well equipped and comfortable

appartement in a pleasant neighbourhood in Berkeley (Elmwood). Coming from Norway we enjoyed the roof top and the sunny afternoons. Only 15 minutes walk from UC Berkeley, and within walking distance to shops and nice cafes.

Outstanding week in Elmwood retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son, and I stayed at the Elmwood "rest stop" last week. This property is very special. The décor is beautiful with the owners' art displayed throughout. Everything was spotless with the most beautiful and well-equipped kitchen you could imagine. This layout is spacious and elegant with comfortable beds and sofas. There is a rooftop patio with table and chairs for elegant dining with a view.

The owners were very friendly and helpful in introducing us to the property and to the area. They even offered to pick us up at the closest BART station!

There are excellent restaurants within walking distance as well as a Whole Foods for groceries. In fact, there is interesting walking every way you turn. We walked to a beautiful trail in Claremont Canyon. I highly recommend this property.

Best neighborhood in Berkeley!

  • 5 of 5

This is a special place. As great as it appears in the photographs - it is far better. The friendly artist owners have made this sparkling clean, light-filled home as tastefully distinctive as it is practical. Fully equipped kitchen and commodious dining room made it fun to eat-in. Yet the neighborhood explodes with fine restaurants, amazing coffee and every possible pastry and ice-cream variety imaginable. It's a great place for walking, located near rapid transit. We have stayed in many VRBOs around the world and this one of the best.

What a place, what a location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and daughter stayed here for a week and had a fabulous time. The neighborhood couldn't be better, with a short walk to one of the most dynamic shopping/dining neighborhoods in the world on College Avenue. We also hopped on BART to zip to San Francisco's Embarcadero in no time.

The house itself is gorgeous - two levels with all the amenities you need to cook, entertain, or just relax.

The owners are very accommodating - freely lending us little items we needed.

Five stars!!

These are all within 2 miles of the elmwood rest stop. We often walk to all of these venues
