About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 5

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 Smoking

*No late night parties or loud music

*No pets

Berkeley bliss

  • 5 of 5

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!

Would not recommend.

  • 1 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Tasha, We are so sorry that you were upset with the outcome of your stay. This is the first time ever that we have had to hold on to a portion of our guests security deposit. Our bed was not damaged prior to your visit. I do a thorough walk through of the property when guests check out and prior to a guests arrival. Had our bed been damaged before your teenage sons occupied the room I would have taken note and not have had to call you and ask about it. You were very pleasant on the phone and other than the damaged bed it appears you took care of our home, so thank you. We aim to keep our property clean, comfortable and welcoming so that our guests feel at home. Seeing that you too are a short term rental owner, I'm sure you can appreciate the option of having a security deposit. It is for instances like this so that owner's are covered for damage that does not result in a quick fix.

Beautiful, large home

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 3 stayed in this flat in October and couldn't have been more pleased. The home is very large, absolutely stunning and very easily accessible via BART. The beds and linens were were comfortable. The kitchen was HUGE. All-in-all it was a fantastic stay and we would highly recommend!

Exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

Our family (1 infant and 1 toddler), my mother and sister all stayed in this quiet flat in September. The unit was immaculate and much bigger than we expected. We arrived much later than planned but entry was simple. Parking for us was supposed to be a challenge (extended Suburban SUV) but we found a spot right in front and it remained available the entire 3 day stay. The neighbourhood is quiet and even with a toddler of their own, we barely noticed that the owners were upstairs.

Definitely would stay here again!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! I think we were sleep training at the time, I am so glad the baby didn't keep you up. We'd love to host you again if you're ever in need.
