I have lived in Berkeley over 40 years and am a Real Estate Agent and General Contractor. My sister who lives at the property is a pediatric nurse and her husband is a chef. My partner lovingly manages the housekeeping and a very high standard of attention to detail.
Scott Selmanoff purchased this apartment in 1994
This North Berkeley location is convenient for all our shopping, entertainment and travel needs. In every direction there is one great treat after another. We never tire of going to the fresh bakery, farmers markets, restaurants, music and plays all within a short distance.
The backyard is very private and surrounded by mature trees and foliage. It is lovely for entertaining with friends and families and the BBQ grill is often cooking up very savory meals.
Thanks very much for the lovely home and responsiveness. I had a very pleasant stay.
May see you next year.
We stayed at Scott's place for just over a week and it was fantastic. Scott has absolutely everything you need for a stay, kitchen was very well equipped, location was great (right next to BART) and the overall hospitality and welcome was the best we've experienced so far at any stay. Thanks Scott, Mike and Anna, we'll be back!
We thoroughly enjoyed out stay in Scott's Berkeley cottage. On arrival there was a bowl of fresh fruit and a bottle of wine to greet us in the kitchen and fresh flowers in the sitting room. The cottage is well appointed with everything one could possibly need for a vacation and plenty of books with interesting information about the area.
Its situation is ideal, within easy walking distance of many shops and restaurants and next to the Bart. Although it is so central it is very quiet and peaceful.
We were greeted immediately on arrival and offered every assistance to make our stay as carefree as possible.
I would highly recommend staying here when visiting Berkeley, San Fransisco and surrounding areas.
The flat is clean with simple and comfortable furniture and decoration. Highlights are access to BART; relatively quiet street because of the way traffic is directed; walk to Hopkins Street to Roma Cafe and Monterey Market (vegetables +); access to Ohlone Greenway with walk to near-by park. For those who like to cook, the kitchen is well-appointed with just enough and not too much for real cooking. Great collection of maps, local magazines, guides, as well as interesting books. Owners are super-responsive and easy. Laundry access and space is good, though the dryer is a bit slow. Would definitely stay again.
We stayed at the apartment for four weeks, while visiting UC Berkeley, and it was very clean and comfortable. The kitchen was extremely well equipped, which made cooking a pleasure. Getting to and from campus was quite easy on public bus or by walking.
Scott was very responsive and helpful throughout our stay, and the neighbors were friendly and full of good suggestions for places to eat and things to do.
This was the first time that we considered a vacation rental instead of a hotel. It was a great rental with everything you need for a comfortable stay and the location was great. The Bart station was less than a block away from the rental so if you didn't have a car, you could still get around San Francisco and the neighboring areas. The neighbors were friendly and offered places to eat and things to do. The place was clean and comfortable. The one assigned parking stall was a great relief because parking in this area can be quite challenging. Again, a great rental and would definitely do this again!
My parents have very specific requirements for the place they live: first of all, it has to be clean and tidy both for the house and the environment. Also, since any noise will disturb their sleep, it needs to be very quiet at night. Last but not least, it should feel generous with space. On a honest account this house meets all the requirements, which is a big relieve to me as it is my first time looking out for a short vacational rent. We are further impressed by the care Scott took to place some flowers to welcome our visit, the all-inclusive kitchen utilities, the comfortable beds, and most importantly the hospitality of our neighbors, Mike and Anna, who offered us a lot of good advice of good-to-try-out places and took the extra effort to find us a festive red table cloth for the lunar new year party. It was wonderful experiences for us and we hope to come back for the second, third,.. times.
Our lovely apartment is 1/2 of a level in duplex. It is conveniently located in North Berkeley next to the BART subway system. There are many restaurants, shops, bike paths and parks within walking distance. The University of California is a short 8 blocks away. It is a lovely residential area centrally located for travelers with or without car. May of our guests come from other countries and from around the United States. One of the owners lives next door and is very quick to respond to your personal needs. We want our guests to have a relaxing and enjoyable visit and will make special accommodations as needed. Please view the GOGOBOT viewer guide for some of our favorite places to eat, shop and explore. Berkeley and the surrounding Bay Area is a treasure chest of never ending places to experience the beauty and wonder of Northern California. We invite you to read our reviews and come enjoy staying with us during your travels. We look forward to hearing from you and meeting you and your family.
