Sunny furnished, one-bedroom apartments with full kitchen, separate dining and living room, 32-inch flat screen TV, satellite, WiFi, shared laundry and courtyard. The apartment is fully furnished with housewares, utensils, linens—everything you need to live comfortably from the moment you arrive.
This apartment is located in what is considered one of the best neighborhoods in Berkeley, North Berkeley. This area is also known as the Gourmet Ghetto and has a Walk Score of 93 out of 100. Walk to grocery stores, shops, banks, post office, shuttle stop bus to Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, BART, public transportation, tourist attractions and Berkeley's famous 'Gourmet Ghetto.' The building is at the corner of Oxford Street and Virginia Street, one block north of the University of California, Berkeley campus.
Location, location, location!. Arguably one of the best places to live--anywhere. This neighborhood of tree-lined streets north of the UC Berkeley campus is defined by Shattuck Avenue and its wealth of great restaurants. The world-renowned Chez Panisse Restaurant anchors the neighborhood, as does the wildly popular Cheese Board Pizza and the original Peet's Coffee. Just above Shattuck, in the lower Berkeley hills, it is possible to live in a home (that is visited by deer) with sweeping views of San Francisco, the San Francisco Bay, and the Golden Gate and Bay Bridges and still be able to walk to shops, restaurants, schools, and bus stops. Downtown Berkeley, with its art, film, theater, and music district is 15 minutes or less south of the Gourmet Ghetto by foot. Dinner at Chez Panisse, a concert at Freight & Salvage, and a short walk back home--life doesn’t get much better than this!
Just to let you know we have arrived home safe and well.We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your apartment and Berkeley. The apt was perfect for us and gave us the space we needed for our stay.
Once again thanks for a great stay and your helpfulness and advice.Will certainly recommend your apts to our family and friends.
Thank you to Ada who went above and beyond to make our time in Berkeley comfortable. The apartment was clean, comfortable, quaint and spacious. If you want to experience life in Berkeley this apartment is well situated near the gourmet ghetto and the University. The gated courtyard is an added bonus to enjoy some quiet time or a meal outside. The only thing I would change is the bathtub/shower because it was a little narrow.
Ada was there to meet us and was very helpful and informative. After a bit of confusion over parking it was soon sorted out and a lovely stay was had by all.
The location is excellent if you don't mind the slight hill which was not a problem for us. We love Berkeley and would definitely stay at this property again.
One block from the University of California, Berkeley, North Berkeley, also called the Gourmet Ghetto, is centered along Shattuck north of University. It is considered the birthplace of innovative California cuisine. This movement was led by Alice Waters of Chez Panisse, a restaurant that continues to thrive to this day.
And if that isn’t enough there is a weekly farmer’s market and annual North Berkeley Spice of Life Festival.
Of course, there’s no shortage of shopping in the neighborhood, with Walgreens Pharmacy, North Berkeley Wine, Vintage Berkeley (in the historic Vine Street pumping plant), , and plenty of groceries (Andronico’s and Safeway are both in the neighborhood). Stop for a coffee at the very first location of Peet’s.
Several culinary destinations have risen up around Waters’ famous restaurant, including César, the Cheese Board Collective and Cheese Board Pizza, Cioccolata Di Vino, the Juice Bar Collective and Cha Am. New, savory experiences include take out from Gregoire and Poulet, Brazillian food at Café de la Paz, a good old Jewish deli at Saul’s, cooking classes at Kitchen on Fire, delicious pastries at Masse's, cupcakes at Love At First Bite, vegan sushi at Cha Ya and Berkeley’s version of a food court, Epicurious Garden.
