Our lovely flat is located high atop a North Berkeley hillside, with quiet country-style living and views of Berkeley's magical hills as well as San Francisco Bay.

The living room opens into a full dining room, furnished in Asian antiques and accommodating a bar connecting the full kitchen, dining room and living room so you can enjoy rich tree-top views from any room. The kitchen is finished in beautiful tile, granite, hardwood cabinets, copper light fixtures and a complete array of culinary supplies for cooking enthusiasts.

About Arun Nevader

Our beautiful duplex home has been Suzy's home her whole life, as her family moved here in 1950. Suzy has been a life-long gardener here in Berkeley and Arun has divided his time between a teaching career at UC Berkeley and as a fashion event photographer for Getty Images.

Arun Nevader purchased this apartment in 1950

Why Arun Nevader chose Thousand Oaks

Sierra Street is a special place. All our visitors have recognized its unique hilltop beauty and serenity, a neighborhood rich in families and Berkeley tradition, feeling country-like, but within walking distance of all that you will ever need or want to do during your stay.

What makes this apartment unique

Having rebuilt this magical home from the ground up, it has given us the chance to create a once in a lifetime experience, which we feel every day that we are here. Sunrises over the hills, a sky of orange whispers, and sunsets over the Golden Gate Bridge, casting a warm and comforting glow upon us, birds in our trees, flowers in our garden, the sense that beauty here is timeless, as we begin to realize that we are not. Sierra Street is the perfect Bay Area getaway--whether you are coming simply to vacation, for a wedding, for your family member at Berkeley, for a conference, or for the wine country, you will find Sierra Street to be a perfect choice among many. We welcome you to see for yourself.

Wonderful Home that makes you want to stay longer!!!

  • 5 of 5

Arun & Suzy are so kind and generous! The place is lovely and well appointed in every way! They left us quality snacks, beverages, and food to cook for breakfast and dinner!!! Also, anything you would need to cook a meal!

The linens and towels especially nice and the whole house was extremely clean!

I came with my grown children to my Mother's 80th birthday and we felt as if we were in our own home! We are hoping to return soon!!!

Wonderful Berkeley getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our long weekend in Arun and Suzy's Berkeley bungalow. The neighborhood is peaceful, but close to Solano Ave and walking distance to the North Berkeley BART, as well as lots of other amenities. We had lovely breakfasts and glasses of wine on the outdoor deck and fresh lemons from the tree in our glasses of water. Arun and Suzy could not have been more helpful.

Best VRBO rental yet!

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting through VRBO for over 10 years now and this was by far the best rental yet. Arun and Susie's home was perfect for our family of 5. The home was clean, well-stocked and central to everything Berkeley. Arun and Susie were always available by email and made sure we had everything we needed. I highly recommend this rental. We hope to return to the SF/Berkeley soon and rent this home again. Janet and family

Close to perfect.

  • 5 of 5

This location and place exceeded our expectations. I am sitting on the terrace looking out to San Francisco Bay as I write this. The flat is near excellent shopping and restaurants. The property was immaculate.The views are spectacular. The hosts were exceedingly helpful, even arranging a KitchenAid to assist in my baking for a wedding. Highly recommended.

Best Vacation Rental Ever!

  • 5 of 5

This was by far one of the best vacation rentals we have ever stayed in - I can't say enough good things about it. Arun and Suzy were the most gracious and helpful of hosts, and they even stocked the kitchen with lots of food for us (coffee, breakfast items, fresh fruit, snacks, and even a bottle of wine!). The apartment is very well furnished, has lovely views, and the kitchen and bathrooms have everything you might need. It's also in a great location in North Berkeley. I highly recommend it as a place to stay when in Berkeley!
