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.

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 thoroughly enjoyed our 2-week stay at Scott's place. The easy booking arrangements, outstanding amenities and convenient location made this an ideal place to stay. Scott, Anna and Mike's warm welcome and tips throughout our stay allowed us to explore more of the San Francisco area than we had imagined. We would return in a heartbeat. Thank you for making this one of our family's best vacations!
My husband and I just spent a month at this property, and it was wonderful in every way. The apartment is located in a lovely, quiet, family-friendly neighborhood just a mile or so from the famous Shattuck Street "Gourmet Ghetto". The apartment was spotlessly clean and nicely decorated, with a fully-stocked, easy-to-use kitchen. (We were able to entertain friends a couple of times.) We appreciated the bowl of fruit, the flowers, and the wine that were waiting for us upon our arrival. Scott helped us get settled in, and it was great having Mike and Anna next door to give us advice and answer our questions.
Many guide books and maps of the area were provided, along with good toys and games for kids (plus DVDs that both adults and children would like). The designated parking spot that comes with the apartment was a relief since parking in Berkeley can be a hassle, and we loved being so close to the North Berkeley BART station. A car truly isn't necessary unless you want to do day trips or venture to other parts of California during your stay, as we did.
We had a perfect stay, and hope to return soon!

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.
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.
