Newly renovated large victorian flat located in NOBE (North Oakland Berkeley Emeryville). Walking distance to BART, close to CAL campus, Gourmet Ghetto, and Blocks from Berkeley Bowl. Great for walking, biking and a super easy commute to SF.
Our space is a beautifully renovated victorian flat. While we brought the kitchen up to date with all new stainless steel appliances, we made sure to maintain some victorian charm by keeping the built-in's and crown molding. The floors are all original hardwood and the bay windows provide glorious sun light.
Weekly Housekeeping is available for an additional cost.
There is tons of on street parking. However, if you prefer not to drive we are a 5 minute walk to Ashby BART. San Francisco is a 15 minute bart commute away!
We ask that you please take your shoes off when in the house.
*No late night parties or loud music
Our family of four needed a base of operations for our first trip together to Northern California from LA. This house was almost TOO nice, it was hard to leave ;-) The kitchen was huge and the dining room area immediately became Board Game Central. The short walking distance to the Berkeley Bowl and Ashby Bart was very convenient. Our 6 days there were too short. We will definitely stay there again when we come up to the Bay Area.
Close to BART station, great setup worked very well for five people. Hosts made everything easy upon check in and check out
Family members flew in from around the country for a celebration, and this home proved a perfect spot to spend time together. The home is beautifully furnished and stocked with plenty of linens and towels. The beds were very comfortable, and one of the couches in the living room folds out to make a fourth bed. We were able to convene in the living and dining rooms, but then everyone had their own space to retire to at night. It was nice to have the extra half bath. The house is conveniently located near the Ashby BART and walking distance to coffee shops and restaurants. The owners were very responsive and offered suggestions on good places to eat. It was a great space!
These folks were very professional, easy to work with and the home was very comfortable.
We enjoyed our stay over Christmas tremendously! Several family out of state family members converged at this comfortable home in Berkeley to be near family residing in Oakland. This house was a great choice for us- very convenient to go to any destination by car or BART.....including SFO or OAK. Since it was Christmas-we used our rental car pretty often since traffic was light. Enjoyed shopping at Berkeley Bowl and even had the local relatives over for a homemade dinner and card games. NOTE: since they specify no parties in the rules, we cleared this with the owners in advance and agreed to make an early night of it--cleared out about 10 pm.
The place was spacious and clean. Parking was easy, beds comfy and not "worn in", plenty of linens, heat & hot water worked well, kitchen stocked adequately--(could use some additional pans (eg cake pans), electric mixer, wine stems), cable TV worked well. Overall a great experience and so much more relaxed than a hotel. Really nice to relax In your pj's with coffee in the morning. The wi fi worked great. I don't think there was a radio or stereo, other than music from TV. At the last minute I packed my "Alexa" and my iPad in my carry on bag---this was really nice to have our own music-will likely do this on future vacations.
Glad to have 1.5 bathrooms. While the claw foot tub shower combo served its purpose, and was beautiful, our preference would have been for a conventional tub/shower combo or a walk in shower. NOTE: Be careful getting out of the claw foot tub as it is high off the floor. One could easily slip when stepping out/down from tub.😬
Shakira and Gerris were both very responsive hosts..We really enjoyed their place and would definitely stay again if our travel plans bring us back to the Bay Area. Highly recommend!
We stayed at this property and while it was clean and spacious we left with a very bad taste in our mouths due to poor customer service.
We were charged for damages that were already there when we arrived.
Upon arrival my son was plugging in his phone to charge and noticed a large chunk missing out of the wood on one of the bed frames. He even mentioned it to his brothers. However we did not think to document it and let the owners know it was there, never thinking we would be blamed for the damage.
The owner Shikira called me to ask me about it. I explained to her the damage was already there upon our arrival. I even had my son call her and explain. She was exceedingly rude to my son.
We are owners of a VRBO rental and our policy is that if the guest tells us something - we believe its the truth. Paying the damage fee is secondary to the way we feel we were treated. I would not recommend this property and we will not be staying there again.
