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.

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.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

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

great vacations!

  • 5 of 5

We really had an amazing time in San Francisco. The owners were really nice and everything was just perfect. The appartment was great for four people, well-equipped, clean and the beds were comfortable. Berkeley is a beautiful city not too far from SF. You could take your car to go the city but we decided to take the Bart (a walk of about 20 minutes). It is also easy to drive to Sonoma, Napa, SF, Sausalito, Muir Woods....We recommend without hesitation and certainly would stay there again if we return to SF one day.

2nd stay...great experience!

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from a trip to Berkeley where we stayed at the North Berkeley Retreat! This was our 2nd summer in California and the 2nd time we had stayed at the retreat for a week. It is in a great location, close to everything we wanted to do and close to our family. Having a laundry room at our disposable was a huge asset, as my husband and I were traveling with our 2 young children. When we return to California for a 3rd time, we will definitely check with the North Berkeley Retreat first about availability.
