Lovely, quiet, spacious comfortable home centrally located within walking distance to shops in Kensington and Solano, Ave. Berkeley. Wonderful neighborhood with great Sunday farmer's market and prepared food stands a few minutes' walk away. Easy access to freeway.

loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

We came in august to help our son get situated at UC Berkeley. The house had everything we needed for a week long stay. The washer and dryer really came in handy. The kitchen is brand new and well equipped for cooking. The house has a bus in front if it with service directly to downtown Berkeley which made it easy for our son to go and explore.The BART station was a 10 min walk away. The host was really responsive to our questions and gave us great dining tips. The house looks exactly like the photos advertised. There are shops within walking distance. We loved the saturday farmers market. I am sure we will book this rental again when we come to see our son.

It is just what was advertised

  • 5 of 5

Cute house in a great location. I stayed here with four family members to celebrate my grandmothers birthday. We were able to have a few friends over and cook a meal in a well equipped kitchen. The house has a nice backyard and a patio that has nice garden furniture. We loved resting in the hammock. The house is comfortable and thoughtfully furnished. It's close to public transportation. It was just what we expected.

Perfect for a short or long stay

  • 5 of 5

The house is as advertised. It's a comfortable, meticulously clean and cozy house perfect for couple or families. The house is close to a cute set of shops. We were able to walk to Colusa circle famers market on saturday to stock up on yummy supplies. My kids loved the hammock in the backyard. I highly recommend this house. We didn't have a car but the bus to downtown Berkeley was outside and the BART was a 10 min walk. The host was very responsive and gave us tips and directions.
