We are within walking distance of downtown Berkeley and the Ashby Bart Station. Travel time to SF by car and public transportation is about 20 minutes.

Berkeley is a town which is urban in feel, yet is small enough to walk around in. We have great movie theatres within a fifteen minute walk, at least three in downtown Berkeley alone.

We have a beautiful park called Tilden Park which has wonderful hiking, and the Lawrence Hall of Science.

Of course, we have our proudest possession, the University of California at Berkeley, within a thirty minute walk — and Zellerbach Hall, the Berkeley Art Museum, Pacific Film Archives, etc. The list goes on.

Berkeley has terrific restaurants of every ethnicity — mostly Mom and Pop restaurants. People come from miles around just to go to our restaurants. (We will leave you our favorite suggestions on the kitchen table.)

traveler reviews for this berkeley house rental

Pleasant stay in Berkeley

Review submitted: August 25, 2013   Date of arrival: August 8, 2013

My family and I spent one week in august in this nice house. The owners wellcomed us kindly, and instructed us thoroughly in all things about the place. It´s very well furnished, with confy bedrooms, pleasant living room, kitchen, and back yard.
We enjoyed a lot our vacation, it´s a pity we could´t stay more time!

Recommended for: families with young children, families with teenagers, sight seeing

Owners response: My husband and I are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at our house. We always try to give our guests a detailed tour so they can be comfortable that they know their way around all the house idiosyncrasies before we give it over to them.

We very happy we could meet the whole family, and have them be able to leisurely check out the Berkeley area where their daughter will be a visiting student this whole next year at UCB.

We also wish you could have stayed longer. You were the perfect guests.

Lovely home

Review submitted: July 28, 2013   Date of arrival: July 13, 2013

This home is exactly as presented in the pictures. The owners not only were very responsive when I felt a need to call them, they were actually appreciative! The backyard is wonderful and our 4 year old grandson loved playing in it. The house is about a 10 minute walk from the Ashby Bart station a d my daughter and son-in-law used it frequently.

My husband and I shared the house with my daughter and her family and we did not feel crowded in any way.

An added advantage for us was that my older granddaughter who lives in B erkeley could walk to the house after her day at ballet camp!

For anyone like us who has family living in Berkeley this house is a wonderful alternative to a hotel.

Excellent for graduation

Review submitted: May 25, 2013   Date of arrival: May 15, 2013

Eileen's house is really quite lovely, very old school Berkeley. The garden is peaceful, and while it is a short ride from campus craziness, it is not in it.
It was perfect for graduation and running to the stores on the westside for food and drink. I had originally regretted that we were not on the eastside, but gee it worked out well. Guests could park. Very quiet. Lovely neighbors. And unlike so much of Berkeley, we could leave a case of wine in the car as we unloaded the vehicle without losing it. Try that anywhere east of Shattuck.
The cab ride to Ashby Bart was $7.00 with tip, and we went to a museum exhibit and a Giants game as well.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Owners response: We were very happy that the renters enjoyed their stay at our Berkeley Craftsman Style home. We also appreciate the solidness of the construction of our house — over 106 years old.

We acknowledge that our renters had very similar responses to the location of our property as we do. It is near the university and Telegraph Avenue exuberance but it is not part of it. And yet the convenience of our location for your everyday needs is wonderful.

The BART and freeways are easily accessible. The Ashby BART is actually 5 blocks, about a 10 minute walk.

We look forward to you considering our house for your future vacation.
