My husband and I stayed at this property with another couple while we were there attending a concert at The Greek Theater. It was very clean and furnishings were extremely nice. We will definitely stay here again in the future.
We loved our stay at this beautiful, clean and comfortable spot in Elmwood. Michael was easy to work with and so helpful. Great location! So much so close by. Loved the roof top deck! I highly recommend this listing and I'm sure we will be back.
A beautiful, comfortable place to stay. Michael was easy to communicate with and helpful. The space is clean and tidy, spacious and relaxing. The kitchen was great for us to use for cooking, and was supplied with all the necessities. The neighborhood is very nice and safe, well located to stores, and restaurants. It's also very easy to get to SF from here. We had a great stay and I would highly recommend this listing. Thank you Michael!
We stayed at Michael's for my son's graduation from Cal. It was the perfect location, we were able to walk to dinner in the evening and were close enough to Cal for all the graduation events. Michael was the perfect host. His home was well equipped, comfortable and very spacious!!! The neighborhood is peaceful with a lot of charming homes.
I would highly recommend staying at Michael's, you will not be disappointed!!
We have stayed at many VRBOs in Berkely and this is by far the best!The accommodations and owners were very hospitable and we hope to return soon.
My husband and I have stayed in many VRBO rentals in the Rockridge/Berkeley area over the last ten years. This Elmwood location is one of our favorites. The apt is very spacious and inviting, and the owners were very accommodating and sweet people. We stayed two months as we were visiting family in the area, and entertained a number of times in the apt. Our kids and grandchildren loved coming over - it felt so welcoming. We would definitely recommend this apt for a family traveling together or 2 couples as the bedrooms/baths offer ample privacy.
Our favorite thing to do was walk a couple of blocks up to College Ave and have a quick bite or a coffee and then head off to the bookstore, library or some fun shopping. This area is fantastic for having a "bit of everything"! We did not rent a car but preferred to walk or take a bus to BART. My husband enjoyed the roof top and watched the sunset there.
Our issue with the property is the price, so sadly we won't be renting again. But it was a splurge, and we enjoyed it!
We are near several theater and music venues. To name some of them : the university of california’s zellerbach theater & playhouse, the shotgun theater company , the berkeley reparatory theater, which has two stages, aurora theater company, and the freight and salvage which features folk and contemporary music. These are all within 2 miles of the elmwood rest stop. We often walk to all of these venues
