Simply the Best

  • 5 of 5

My jaw dropped as I entered this flat for the first time. It was just so much better than I could have hoped. The pictures are nice, but up close the place is even nicer. It is spacious in a way the photos cannot convey. It is very well-lit, and is extremely well-decorated. The bedroom is cozy and perfect for sleeping. The water pressure is great. It is surrounded by a green garden all around.

Parking is on the street, usually right in front of the house. The location is excellent - it's a gorgeous, tree-lined street, walking distance to a great brunch place, and if you don't mind walking for a little more, you soon come up on cute shops and excellent dining. The location is just the right distance from these places so that it is close enough to get there easily and fast, and at the same time remote enough to be in the midst of green gardens and beautiful homes.

The apartment is the independent lower unit of a gorgeous house, where the owner runs a B&B. Although there are guests above, you never hear them. Meanwhile, it is very convenient to have the owner right above you. In my case, since I was alone, it helped me feel safe knowing that she was there. Mary is the sweetest, most fun person, and though the apartment wasn't available this July, when I visited again, I made sure to come over simply to say hi.

As far as I can see, the only problem I have with this flat is that I can't stay here as much as I'd like. I have stayed in other vrbo homes, and I have to say, this place is simply the best.

De3lightful Berkeley Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Mary has a delightful and spacious one bedroom apartment in Berkeley that can accomdate two more people on a sofa/futon in the living room. The apartment is in a quiet residentail area of Berkeley but in easy walking access of local shops & restaurants; there are lots of opportunities for walks through the hills rising above Berkeley which give great views of the Bay Area. Mary was full of suggestions of routes to follow. It is also easy to use as a base for travel around the Bay Area with the BART not too far away if you don't have a car.

The arpartment itself is tastefully decorated and had all the facilities we needed for our stay in Berkeley. We would recommend the apartment without hesitation to anyone visiting Berkeley.

4-star apartment

  • 5 of 5

This spacious apartment is an ideal place to live in Berkeley. It is an easy walk to excellent dining, a fine bakery, a cleaning establishment and a coffee store. It is a moderate walk to College Avenue which has wonderful stores and a true Berkeley ambiance. The neighborhood is spectacular. The apartment is delightful - well furnished, with privacy if overnight guests come to stay. The deck is almost as large as the apartment and is very private. The washer/dryer are immediately adjacent to the apartment - very convenient. The property is very clean. The owner was very accommodating. We would recommend the apartment to anyone wishing to stay in Berkeley for a month or more.

Absolutely Delightful!

  • 5 of 5

Mary is the ultimate hostess! I cannot express how grateful I am for her hospitality and welcoming ambiance. The apartment is clean, warm, and has great natural lighting. The available space can accommodate a couple that needs to get away or an entire family of 4 on vacation. The decor is simple yet tasteful. The neighborhood is quaint and lends itself to privacy without ever feeling disconnected to city life. The location is perfect for exploring the surrounding Berkeley area and yet not too far away from San Francisco.

I highly recommend this apartment. I will no doubt return to stay at this delightful apartment in the Berkeley hills.

Lovely Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many B&B's in the Bay Area over the years. This one is our favorite! The apartment is always very clean and bright and it is extremely comfortable. We like to walk, so staying here is perfect because of the close proximity to many shops and great restaurants. We never hesitate to recommend this property to anyone considering a visit to the Bay Area.
