Amazing view, spacious condo, challenging location
Loved the architecture and overall layout of the condo. It was a great space for our family to be together. The amount of light is abundant (and revealing) and the view is "luxury" level -amazing. My only critique was that the "luxury" level did not extend to the furniture and curtains which are a bit worse for wear. The bright sunlight revealed that the windows and all of the surfaces in the living area and kitchen would benefit from a thorough deep cleaning. The Berkeley Hills are beautiful but the drive up and down to this condo is via a very narrow, hairpin-turn-filled, hilly, bumpy lane with a surprising amount of traffic on it making it difficult to navigate by car...which we did several times each day as we were out and about in the East Bay. We didn't attempt to make the trek by foot down to campus (would need to walk back up!) though hardier souls would find it a lovely adventure. My safety conscious spouse was concerned that there was no fire extinguisher under the sink as the condo information sheet stated. I appreciated the owner's phone call on our first day to check to make sure we had arrived and that everything was ok. I appreciated the complete and thorough instructions on accessing the keys to the unit - all very clear and easy. Our weekend stay was great!
Great place but...
We had stayed here five years ago and loved it. The condo is great, spacious, beautiful views, quiet, up in the hills. This time, however, we were greeted by the unpleasant news that Panoramic Way was closed from 9-12 and again from 1-4 during the week, thereby limiting access. This required some back and forth with both VRBO and the owner since we had not been made aware of this fact prior to arriving. We were able to resolve it and ended up staying but had to make rearrangements for our plans. Better communication prior to arriving would have alleviated this issue. I believe the construction is due to continue for some time so if you are planning a visit definitely get this information prior to booking as it is not included in the description of the condo. Other than that our stay was very good.
The perfect location - Great view - Easy access to trails and downtown Berkeley
This house was perfect for our stay in Berkeley. We thoroughly enjoyed the walkability to both nature trails and downtown Berkeley. If I ever come to the Bay Area again, I will try to stay here.
Great Berkeley retreat
The apartment is spacious, clean, comfortable, and only a few minutes from downtown Berkeley. It's a drive rather than a walk, given the steep road, but not a long drive. The view from the apt is terrific and walks through the hills are great.
We had a great time and Alex's home was just right for us. The view is amazing and the kitchen was well stocked. Alex was quick to respond to our questions. We look forward to returning in the future!
Overall very good. Large unit, great location, beautiful views
3 adults shared this Berkeley Hills unit, very near the Berkeley campus. Some minor issues when we first moved in (5 weeks) were promply addressed. There could have been a bit more attention to the the unit's cleanliness - just so so when we first arrived. For those among us who are fit, it is technically a "walk to town" (or at least to the University) but it will evolve walking up a narrow, winding road which leads to the apt. and or adjacent steps. Either way it's not a stroll
