About Maura Allen

I am originally from England and Ireland and came to the bay area in the 80's. I have lived in many bay area cities, and my favorite places are Marin county and Berkeley. I presently live in Berkley and some of the time in Marin, and work as a real estate broker with Sotheby's International Realty.

Maura Allen purchased this apartment in 2004

What makes this apartment unique

This is a beautiful Edwardian home with lots of character and original architectural detail, set among other period homes, in a quiet tree-lined residential neighborhood, yet only a couple of blocks from the hub of the historic Elmwood district, and the Claremont and Rockridge neighborhoods. BART is just 10 blocks away for easy access to San Francisco and beyond.

Enjoyed my stay

  • 4 of 5
I`ve been living here for four weeks with 6 other students. The second floor at the house is perfect for several people, and its been enough space for 7 students.
The house has two big bedrooms with comfortable beds! The air condition was a blessing, and the kitchen has a lot of supplies for those who like to cook!

We have everything we need in the house, and the neighbourhood is safe with nice neighbours.

Maura has been very helpful when we needed her.

I`ve enjoyed my stay and recommend it o other people!

Lovely house and neighbourhood

  • 5 of 5
I have stayed in this beautiful house for a month now, and I have really enjoyed the stay. Lovely neigbourhood and great location near restaurants, Safeway, Telegraph street and the BART station. The house had all the equipment i needed, and a lot of space. Maura was very helpful whenever we needed her. I wish I could come back here one day. I truly recommend this house to other people. Thanks for the stay!

Lovely home!

  • 5 of 5
Travelling from Norway and stayed here for a month. Such a lovely home, and Maura was great. Close to everything I needed; grocery store, shopping, restaurants, cinema, BART station, bus and UC Berkeley. And what I loved the most was the safe and nice neighbourhood. Hope I can come back and stay here next time I'm back in Berkeley.

Great house, great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5
I stayed with my six fellow research students from Norway at the house for almost 5 weeks this January-Febuary of 2012. We found the house by coincidence on the website of "home away.com" The house has a good feel to to it and it felt very much like a home. The house looked much better in reality than it does in the pictures on the website. Maura, the landlord, was extremely helpful with anything we needed during our stay and she would check in with us several times to see if there was anything we needed. Anything. The house had a lot of space and had all the appliances we needed. The beds were very comfortable! The bathroom had a high standard, which I think is important to mention.

Even though it was a little bit cold outside when we arrived on the 11th of January, the heating system in the house worked perfectly without any problems. The kitchen was very equipped and we did not lack anything. This in particular was very neat since we all cooked many dinners at home during our stay. There is a Whole Foods and a Safeway grocery store not far away from the house, just a short walk away (5-6 minutes). We were also very thrilled when we discovered a Trader Joe´s right next to Rockridge Bart Station. Of course we did not eat dinners at the house every night. There are plenty of quaint little restaurants close to the house. In Elmwood we found a very nice greek restaurant that I enjoyed a lot and also an Indian restaurant right on College street and Alcatraz ave.

Due to our research project, we had to go to San Francisco very frequently for meetings. There was no problem for us to get there. We either walked to Rockridge Bart station (about a 23 minute walk) or took the bus either on Telegraph street or via College street to the Downtown Berkeley bart station.

I especially liked the neighbourhood. It´s great to go for a jog or run in the morning and the people I met were very friendly. I felt very secure and relaxed just walking or jogging around on my own.

Recommended for: Families, young couples, adventurous travelers, outdoor people. Do not need a rental car to get around. Many things to do and easy to get to San Francisco and Sonoma and Napa.

I would definitely recommend this house to families but also to young adventurous adults who wants to visit the Bay Area and San Francisco. You don´t need a rental-car to get around, because the public transportation system in this area is very good and easy to access. Will I come back here? Yes, for sure! And I would love to bring my family from Norway along next time!

Beautiful Home in Great Berkeley Location

  • 5 of 5
Elmwood Place met all our expectations and beyond, with the highest quality throughout. It was quiet, sunny, breezy, and warm, with all rooms large, spacious and inviting. The outside deck was especially nice, comfortably seating six adults at the table and chairs

We rented here for two months during the summer, and loved the idyllic location, the sun-filled house, the quiet neighborhood, and easy access to all that Berkeley has to offer. Located on a quiet cul-de-sac in a residential neighborhood with lots of young families, it was within walking distance of shopping, great restaurants, Whole Foods, several coffee houses, theater, BART, and UC Berkeley.

The accommodations and appointments are first-class. The living space was great with a Carlyle sleeper sofa (when we had family visit) and very comfortable beds and linens. There was a high resolution SONY TV, SONY DVD blue ray player, and DirecTV satellite for watching TV in the evenings and the Olympics were great! We had everything we needed in the kitchen to cook great meals, including a powerful gas range and convection oven, which was great for baking. Just like I have at home, there was Sur La Table stainless steel cookware, Henkel kitchen and steak knives, Le Creuset and Chicago bake-ware, small appliances, and important tools like a garlic press and cherry pitter for serious cooks like me.

The owner did everything we asked and more, including helping with suggestions about day trips and exploring the Bay Area and wine country. We could not have enjoyed our stay more and look forward to visiting again next summer.
