traveler reviews for this berkeley studio rental

A lovely retreat!

Review submitted: February 4, 2014   Date of arrival: December 26, 2013

My experience staying here was just lovely! Greg and Bianca have made this studio very comfortable and charming. Their lovely yard with a hot tub was an added bonus to the experience. It's walking distance to Solano Avenue where there are lots of choices to dine and shop and a movie theater. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again, or recommend this to friends and family.

Awesome, Beautiful, Gorgeous !!!!

Review submitted: December 5, 2013   Date of arrival: October 28, 2013

I'm a traveling RN, was stuck in a crappy place in SanFrancisco and commuting to Oakland for work, this place was a Godsend! Only 20min to Oakland, less then 10min to the Bart Station (which takes only about 40min or so to get back into SanFrancisco via Bart), safe neighborhood, street parking always easy to find, 5min away from a Target, Solono Ave full of shops, cute places to eat, gyms just 2 blocks or so down, easy access to the interstate only about 5 min away. Greg and Blanca were very welcoming, super sweet couple! They were always available to give me any other info I might need about the area as well. The in law unit was gorgeous! Intricate details to the design. Perfect size for 1-2 persons. I would definitely stay here again! :)

We want to return as soon as possible!

Review submitted: September 9, 2013   Date of arrival: August 22, 2013

What can I say that hasn't already been said about this space? It was delivered as promised. The posted photos, however, do not do it justice. It was even more beautiful than the photos imply. Greg and his wife spent a lot of time and effort making the space wonderful.

Speaking of our hosts, they were so welcoming. Greg picked us up at the nearby BART station and gave us a short tour of the neighborhood on the way to the space. There was a bottle of wine and some chocolates greeting us upon arrival. If we needed anything, Greg was just a phone call or text away.

The space is located near many interesting shops and restaurants in Albany/Berkeley. We spent one day just exploring all the area had to offer. The next day was spent in San Francisco, which was about 1-1.5 hours away by BART. The nearest BART stop is about a 30-minute walk through a cozy residential neighborhood.

I would definitely recommend this space for couples looking for a romantic getaway, travelers on a budget, or people looking for homey comfort near an urban setting.
