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.

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.
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.
Beautiful, spacious spot with a lovely deck area perfect for sipping morning coffee or evening wine. So nice to have 2 bathrooms when you have more than 3 people. Hosts were terrific and showed us around quickly, and even had some nice treats waiting for us. One nit that most people won't care about - the main living room area doesn't have a TV, though each of the bedrooms do. It's not a big deal, but during football season it was a little odd for us not to be able to watch a game as a group. You're likely going to have too much to do in the area to much care, though. Easy walking distance to some restaurants/coffee and close enough to BART as well. Recommended.
Amazing place, perfect for my parents and my 7 month-old son. No issues checking in or out, place was super clean (ask my hyperallergenic wife), and they even had some food/drinks in the fridge for us! You'd be crazy to stay at a hotel...hard to beat this place! Thanks Arun and Suzy!
We had a phenomenal stay the pictures didn't do justice the house was fantastic absolutely beautiful we were moving our daughter into her dorm for her very first year college it was in a perfect location and we were expecting a package that we needed for our daughter it didn't arrive on time and was scheduled to arrive after we left and Arun offered to accept the package and deliver it to our daughter storm can express how thankful we were
Here’s the bottom line: We booked our next stay in Arun and Suzy’s apartment when we were just halfway through our first (month-long) visit.
The apartment is spacious, comfortable, immaculate, and exactly as pictured and described on the website. It has an excellent kitchen for those who want to cook. There are two decks, and views of the Bay to the west, the Berkeley Hills to the east, and downtown Oakland to the south. And the windows overlook Suzy’s beautiful garden. The location can’t be beat. Situated between Solano and the Gourmet Ghetto (on Shattuck), the apartment is within walking distance of at least three first-class restaurants; ethnic food of every description; and a wonderful little tacqueria (Cactus, on Solano). Also the Monterey Market, the Monterey Fish Market, and a good wine shop beside them. Also supermarkets; new and used bookstores; ATM; and even a nice little gym. Easy on-street parking. But you don’t really need a car, unless you want to leave the Bay Area, since it’s only a twenty-minute walk to the North Berkeley BART station.
Arun and Suzy, who live downstairs, couldn’t have been nicer or more helpful, from our first dealings to our departure.
We really enjoyed our stay in Berkeley. The house was really clean and was set up perfectly for our needs. Coming and going was a breeze, parking was never a problem, and several restaurants are walking distance. Couldn't be more satisfied!
Within 2 miles of the University of California, Berkeley.
