About Gerald J. Brunetti

We have lived in Berkeley since our college years at University of California. We love the diversity of the city, the openness, the friendly people, the wonderful access to culture in the city and the greater Bay Area. We like going to plays and opera, eating out at the richly varied restaurants in the area, shopping in Berkeley and San Francisco, visiting local parks and attending the many festivals all year round.

Quiet, spacious and convenient to UCB

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Barbara and Jerry’s North Berkeley retreat. Perfect accommodations for our family of four. The we’re flexible with our arrival and departure times, the apartment was spacious, comfortable and extremely clean. Great walking access to the Shattuck street restaurants and the Cal campus - we walked to the Greek Theater and a Cal football game, we hope to visit again.

Wonderful stay in the prime location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at North Berkeley Retreat! The rooms were spacious and the kitchen had all the amenities we needed. Barbara and Jerry were wonderful hosts, they greeted us and showed us around the apartment. We had no questions or requests during our stay, as everything we needed was provided in the apartment. Wifi was a bit intermittent in some rooms, but once we figured out where the reception was better, we had no problem. We really loved our walks to the nearby parks and the Gourmet Ghetto.

Comfortable home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted by Barbara who was wonderful and welcoming. She showed us around the immaculate and nicely furnished apartment. The apartment was spacious, comfortable and bright. Barbara even set up a patio table and chairs so we could enjoy relaxing outside. We loved staying there. The location was close to parks, gourmet ghetto, and shopping. Thank you Barbara and Gerald for bring such great hosts.

Hosts Jerry and Barbara offer a welcoming, newly decorated one-bedroom apartment in an upscale area of Berkeley. The unit, which overlooks a garden, magnificent trees and the distant bay, is comfortable, spacious, private, quiet, clean and thoughtfully furnished to provide the visitor with a relaxing and convenient stay. It features an equipped kitchen, modern bathroom with stall shower, laundry facilities, Xfinity cable television, wi-fi, and street parking. Restaurants, stores and churches are within easy walking distance. The unit fit our needs perfectly. We would certainly stay here again.

Owner's Response: We very much enjoyed having Stephen and Jill Popolizio as our guests at North Berkeley Retreat. They were not only quiet, clean, and respectful of the apartment; they were also cordial and interesting to talk to. We hope they return soon. Barbara & Jerry Brunetti North Berkeley Retreat
