Downtown Berkeley Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

WELCOME!

This unit is on the top floor of a beautiful Queen Anne house located a mere 4 blocks from the UC Berkeley campus. It has been recently remodeled, fresh paint in all rooms, and new bathroom fixtures with classic claw foot tub and shower. The furnishings are clean, classy and comfortable. The kitchen is well appointed with dishwasher, stove, new microwave and toaster oven, plus it has all the essentials you'll need to cook up fabulous meals with fresh foods from the famous Berkeley Saturday Farmer's Market just a couple of blocks away.

There are also numerous acclaimed restaurants such as Chez Panisse and Cafe Gratitude, and excellent shopping opportunities within easy walking distance from your place. BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) is a few short blocks away giving you access to the entire Bay Area. If you are driving, there is off street parking that will accommodate two cars. Parks for kids to play are only blocks away, and excellent hiking is a short bicycle or car ride from the house.

This unit is perfect for a visiting professor, a couple on holiday, or a small family. Please contact us for more information!

Place to Explore Berkeley!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Bonita for 4+ months while I relocated to Berkeley from the East Coast. Was a great location to explore the city. One can get anywhere without a car, however, there is a parking space with the apartment which was very convenient in that neighborhood. There is a deck that faces the San Francisco bay. The sunset is amazing from the view as well as breakfast our doors in the morning. The place has a big yard for a dog, ours was always roaming around, very happy. This is a wonderful place too explore Berkeley for either a short or long stay!

A great rental for visiting business-people!

  • 5 of 5

I work for a local company that brings a lot of contract workers from out of town for 1-2 months; I'm the one with the job of finding furnished apartments for them within walking distance of downtown Berkeley. This apartment (and the one downstairs) are easily my first choices when I we need something more than a hotel room. The apartment is charming, homey, and tastefully decorated; the landlords are highly responsive. There's laundry in the basement, parking in the back, Trader Joe's on the corner, and the Shattuck Avenue restaurants just a few blocks away -- who could ask for more?

I'll also say that the value offered here is really great -- for this location, with these amenities, it's a find!

My executives really like staying here; I really like working with these landlords...the only reason I hesitate to write a glowing review is it means it's less likely I'll be able to get in when I need it! But seriously -- if you're here to visit friends in the Berkeley area (or on campus) this is a great place to stay.

Luc's family

  • 4 of 5

We arrived in the Bay Area from France with my family, we stayed 2 months at Bonita.

The time for us to look for a long lease housing for the 2 next years, It was perfect to visit Brekeley, and to find the place we wanted to settle in : finally at cedar very close from Bonita.

The apartment was very convienent to downtown Berkeley. We didn't have a car and our way around town was super easy - close to numerous restaurants, stores, the BART and campus. The apartment was very clean and nicely decorated, we love a lot the kitchen, we spent many times to cook with a wonderful view. Our little family had a fabulous time there to begin our new life in California. Thanks for renting this apartment.

Great Location. Excellent for families with young children.

  • 5 of 5

We just spent last week of december and first of january in this great victorian house with our two children. The location is excellent, walking distance to restaurants, BART ( we took it to go to San Francisco several times), supermarket, gym and play grounds in parks for the kids. The house is very well maintain and the owner was very helpful in providing all information I asked for in preparation for our trip. If I were to return to Berkeley, I will stay in this house for sure.

caution

  • 2 of 5

warm in the summer during the day without air conditioning, close to market to walk and car parking is difficult and requires moving at lunch and at other inconvenient times to allow others to park double cars in a very hard to park area. Smaller than standard stairs and not easy to use areas in batchroom for counter space for women needing space for dressing.... sanitary and comfortable for a short stay.

CAUTION . NOT for the easily trusting such as the young unprofessional as "tricks" to promise more than able to deliver. Watch out and confirm every detail and follow up daily to prevent possible issues.

Owner's Response: This person made a last minute reservation to stay at our flat while the landscape areas were under construction. We had informed the guest that this was the case and she wanted the rental anyway because she was starting a new job in the area. She reserved the flat for three weeks and found that she only needed the flat for two. We agreed to allow her a refund for the additional week which was against our rental agreement. Although we typically refund deposits promptly, due to the fact that my wife and I were on our honeymoon in Europe it took longer than expected to process her refund. We are sorry that she did not enjoy her stay in Berkeley as we do everything we can to make sure our guests are comfortable. One last note, there is ample off street parking with no parking restriction which is unique in this area.
