About Laurie Karzen

I was born and raised in the East Bay as were my parents and I graduated from UC Berkeley. I raised my children in Piedmont before moving to Pacific Park Plaza in Emeryville in 1991. I still live in the building and divide my time between the bay area and New York. I have watched our city grow and become the wonderful place that it is today.

Laurie Karzen purchased this Condo in 2005

Why Laurie Karzen chose Emeryville

I love the location of Pacific Park Plaza in Emeryville because of the magnificent views plus the many amenities. I like having the 24/7 helpful security staff, maintenance and the best cleaning crew. Plus I appreciate the package service knowing that if I am away everything is handled. Having the sophisticated fitness center and the pool are an added bonus!

                                                                    Katy H.

I am a travel nurse who got to live in this amazing condo for 3 months along with my husband and another travel nurse friend. There was plenty of room for the 3 of us. Everything is well stocked with anything you could ever need. The place was kept neat and clean during our stay. The condominium has top notch security as well as a gym, tennis courts, pool, and hot tub. It is in a prime location to get to the city, Berkely, Oakland and right across the street from Emeryville's public market. It is complete with a gated parking lot so we felt that our car and things were extremely safe while we were there. Laurie was more than accommodating to our every need and anyone would be lucky to stay here! The views of the city, bay, and golden gate bridge are out of this world and we wished we could stay here forever. We really couldn't have asked for a better place to make a temporary home while we were working in the area and would recommended staying here x1000!

                                                                    Beyond our expectations

                                                                    Joseph K.See above

                                                                    How often can you say something exceeds your expectations? That's just how we felt about our stay at Laurie's condo in Emeryville. The location was incredible, but we knew that ahead of time. What we didn't know was how beautiful the condo was going to be. From the Ralph Lauren silverware to the grand piano in the living room, it was one of the most elegantly comfortable places we've stayed in a long time. We were met at two in the morning by our incredibly caring host, Laurie, who welcomed us warmly. The kitchen was perfectly appointed and we never looked for anything we couldn't find -- from sugar and salt to ziplock and garbage bags to spices and condiments. Thank you Laurie for the care you most obviously put into making this a welcoming experience. We will definitely be back.

                                                                    A FABULOUS STAY IN THE SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA

                                                                    Edward P.

                                                                    My wife and I have stayed in a number of VRBO apartments and condos and this, by far, was the most rewarding experience. It is truly luxurious. Nothing has been overlooked. . . . . .from the champagne glasses, kitchen utensils and serving pieces to the fine linen. There is even a full library if you want a complete range of reading materials. The condominium is spotlessly maintained and the owner could not be more solicitous, making sure that your stay will be memorable.

                                                                    Needless to say the views of the San Francisco skyline, the Golden Gate and Oakland Bay Bridges are spectacular from the 25th floor . . . . .truly impressive!!

                                                                    If you want the excitement, shopping, and dining (or even business needs) of San Francisco, the free "Emeryville Go Round" bus, on the corner, goes to the MacArthur Bart station for the quick ride, on Bart, to the downtown Embarcadero area as well as points along the Bart route. If you're eligible, as a senior, pick up a Clipper Card at the travel/ticket desk just inside the entrance of the Embarcadero Ferry Building. The Clipper Card allows you travel the Bart route at very reduced rates. If you're visiting San Francisco, Berkeley, or Oakland your stay here will be outstanding.

                                                                    A luxurious experience

                                                                    GSBHilton Head, South Carolina

                                                                    We were visiting Emeryville because our daughter and son-in-law just had our first grandchild. The condo is spotless, luxurious but livable with fabulous views of the bay and great amenities. We enjoyed the fitness center and heated pool. The condo is supplied with everything any family could want. The kitchen is totally equipped for serious cooking and entertaining. The owner is accommodating and the staff is courteous and helpful. The location is walking distance to shopping and restaurants. We hope to stay there again and would give this condo an unqualified recommendation.

                                                                    Perfect in every way!

                                                                    Lisa S.-

                                                                    I needed to be in the Berkeley area to take care of my son who is a student and was undergoing knee surgery. I was looking for a property that would be clean, comfortable and easy for my son to navigate on crutches. Not only did this property fit the bill for those requirement but it delivered so much more. It is beautiful, perfectly maintained, offered breathtaking views and offered a peaceful reprieve. The condo is in a full security building and has a lovely doorman and lobby staff that couldn't be nicer. In addition the owner (Laurie) lives directly across the hall and is happy to help answer any questions or give restaurant tips or help with anything at all! She even let us use a wheelchair which she had and brought us a bag of ice when we were running low. The kitchen is a cooks dream and is stocked with everything you could ever need! (And I am a cook!). The property is in a beautiful part of Emeryville and restaurants and retail is within walking distance if you don't have a car. It is conveniently located to Berkeley and San Francisco which are only about 10-15 minute drive away. There us a beautiful pool on property, gym and laundry facilities on the floor. In short. There is no place in Emeryville or Berkeley that would come close to this property whether you are considering a rental or hotel. This property is outstanding. I will most definitely be returning!!!!

                                                                    MichaelLos Angeles

                                                                    My wife and I stayed at this property with our three children - one teenager and two tweens. The accommodations were very clean and comfortable (fantastic) and the condo contained absolutely everything we needed for an enjoyable/relaxing stay. The condo is in a great location - within walking distance to stores and restaurnts, and is just a short ride (if there's no traffic on the Bay Bridge) into San Francisco. After a day in the city, the condo was the perfect place to return to, prepare and enjoy a nice meal, get cleaned up and get a good nights rest to be ready for the next day's adventure. The owners, Laurie and Stan were extremely hospitable. We had all our sight seeing planned out, but if we didn't, the owners provided us with a large binder filled with suggestions.

                                                                    Our kids loved the pool and jaccuzzi, as did my wife and I. My wife and I also really enjoyed the gym. It is better than any gym you'll find in a four star hotel. If we ever decide to visit or vacation in San Francisco again, we would love to stay at this condo. We would also recommend to all our friends and family.

                                                                    Emeryville a unique place to live because it is urban yet feels like a small community. There are lofts/flats, restaurants, shops, a movie theater complex. The Public market is just across the street and the Bay Street Shopping Center, Trader Joe's and ikea are within walking distance. The East Bay has become a foodie destination and one of the best restaurants in the east bay is Emeryville's own Townhouse. Emeryville is also is the home to the Corporate offices of Chiron (Novartis), Bayer, Pixar, Jamba Juice, Semifreddi's Bakery and Peet's Coffee so as a result the goods and services are constantly growing. There are great views of San Francisco and a BART station close by providing quick access to SF. Plus there is a free shuttle to and from BART and to various spots around town. There is also an Amtrak station across the street The Emeryville Marina is charming and you can walk the path along the water. There is a nice trail along the coast line that leads to the Berkeley Marina and a path that leads onto a pedestrian walkway onto the Bay Bridge. Emeryville is the perfect location when visiting Northern California. It has the best access not only to San Francisco but to the Wine Country, The Mountains and the Beaches.
