Beautiful, quiet home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Our family (4 adults and 2 children) stayed for five nights in this absolutely beautiful home in Berkeley. I knew that the accommodations were adequate for our crowd, but had no idea that this home was so lovely. We were out doing things during most of our stay so didn't take much advantage of the patio, and gardens, but certainly enjoyed the scenery. The kitchen seemed very adequately stocked with equipment, but we did not cook. With two children, we did appreciate the washer and dryer however. There were places to eat within walking distance. We had a car available, altho we also took BART into San Francisco. In sum, we were very pleased by this rental, would gladly stay there again, and would certainly recommend it to others.

Perfect place for a stay in Berkeley

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely perfect stay in Berkeley at this charming, comfortable, and well-outfitted home. Great location, central to everything (transportation, food stores and restaurants, Cal campus) set back on a quiet street. Betty has thought of everything, including lots of nice fluffy white towels and a fully equipped kitchen. The lovely patio is a real bonus.

We also found Betty to be quite flexible with scheduling and appreciated her willingness to come by immediately to patiently resolve a minor cable TV problem. She also responded immediately and helpfully to all pre-visit communications.

Our family hopes to be able to stay there again the next time we visit Berkeley. By the time we left, it felt like home. We give the house and Betty our highest praise.

6 Day stay for business

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and comfortable. We also were able to get it on very short notice as we decided to extend our business stay for 6 more days. Owner was great.

Our ideal home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This house is so comfortable and charming. Love how quiet it is at night. The living room gets the nicest light in the morning. The kitchen is so functional. We have stayed in this rental three times now. It's perfect for our family of four.

Perfection in Berkeley

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and a lovely retreat for two couples. Betty was a wonderful host who helped with all our needs. Only one problem - wished our visit was longer! We will be back, however.

My family and I LOVED this house - very convenient and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this house, and had a wonderful time. Betty is terrific to deal with. My husband, four year old and I stayed here for three weeks in June.

The house is pristine, and decorated with lovely and interesting things. It's also enormously comfortable and we felt at home the minute we walked in the door. It's set away from the quiet street and surrounded by trees and garden. The swingset was a huge hit with my daughter, and she still talks about it. The kitchen is excellent and well-equipped with very good quality dishes, pans, etc.; we cooked almost every meal and it was a pleasure to use. ‎The beds are comfortable, plenty of nice towels, lots of plates and glasses and mugs so you're not constantly doing the dishes, comfortable places to sit inside and out...I really can't say enough things about how happy we were with the house.

It's an easy walk to the Berkeley campus, excellent public library, BART‎, area restaurants and stores. There are supermarkets nearby (NB Safeway delivers, too) and beautiful parks (including Tilden with a great swimming lake) and swimming pool (Strawberry Canyon) a short drive or bus ride away. ‎The marina is also not far, and it's easy to get on the highway. We loved just walking around the neighborhood in the evenings, as well.

All three of us hope very much to go back again soon!
