About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

This flat is uniquely located in close proximity to all Berkeley activities. It is just 4 blocks from the world renowned University of California at Berkeley, within walking distance of the 'Gourmet Ghetto' where restaurants such as Chez Panisse, Cezar, The Cheese Board, Gregoire, and many others, are located.

The flat is well appointed, with a full, recently renovated kitchen, high ceilings, gracious rooms, and a relaxing atmosphere. We have had many guests from around the world - researchers, vacationers, artists, actors, and business people.

If you decide to stay awhile and need to travel around the Bay Area, a BART train station is also within a few blocks walking distance. This will get you across the bay to San Francisco and most other points within the Bay Area. There is one off street parking spot for a car if you choose to bring one.

We do our best to make everyone's stay comfortable and pleasant.

How often do you get more than is advertised?

  • 5 of 5

I recently spent a month at this flat.

It was advertised as a one bedroom, and that is what the photographs indicate. So imagine my delight when I found an additional room! It is small, but it contains a pull out couch and a desk. Since I was on a working vacation, the desk was such a pleasant surprise. I was able to "set up shop" without having papers piled on the kitchen table.

The rest of the flat was clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked, and we actually cooked our Christmas dinner in it.

It was great having Trader Joe's 2 blocks away. I joined the nearby YMCA for a month; that was only a few blocks away. The one time I had any issue, it was with the heat, and Hillary was immediately responsive to my call. It was resolved quickly.

(The only caution I offer is that I was in the "downstairs flat" and the couple in the flat above me woke early, as they were traveling nurses, and the normal shuffling of their preparations for the day tended to awaken me before I would have liked.)

It was a positive experience, and I would return again.

Great location with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this flat for 15 weeks this summer while my husband interned in Oakland. The apartment is bigger than the pics make it seem, so it was perfect for us and our 15 month old son. The kitchen was stocked with dishes, cookware, everything we needed to make our home for the summer. The location was perfect, walk to BART, walk to restaurants on University & Shattuck, several great parks nearby for kids, Trader Joe's was literally around the corner. We could not have had a better experience and Hillary was great as well. We didn't have any problems, but she gave us information on local kids activities and answered any questions we had! We have since relocated to Berkeley permanently and luckily found a long term apartment in the same area. Highly recommend this flat and working with Hillary!!

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

We spent five weeks in this great apartment. The location was very convenient, with easy walking access to restaurants, BART, grocery stores, coffee houses, the UC campus and the Gourmet Ghetto. The apartment was clean and well-maintained and the space and amenities were as advertised. The kitchen was more than adequate for serious cooking. The landlord was prompt and considerate in responding to our needs. We would definitely stay here again

Better than expected!

  • 5 of 5

I spent 2 weeks in the lower apt at Bonita Street and I had a better than expected time! The apt is charming, clean and the kitchen area is particularly comfortable with all the needed appliances. The apt is larger than what I imagined from the pictures. The bed is excellent and the shades and curtains do their job (great black out). Location is great, close to a dog park, restaurants and I also appreciated the parking space in the private lot. Do not miss the "chocolaterie" Blue on University Ave. Hillary was always available and willing to answer my questions. Will definitely go back.
