We didn't buy it as a vacation rental. It is our home. You will have full use of the appliances, dishes, etc. and you can even use the staples and spices you find in the pantry and the refrigerator.
What makes this House unique
Great location. Walk to UC Berkeley. Solano Avenue with its shops and restaurants is just 3 blocks away. Express bus to San Francisco is two blocks away. You can walk to the North Berkeley BART station;. it's just a little over a mile. If you don't know about the climate in our area let us tell you -- it seldom gets very hot in the summer (almost no one has air conditioning) or too cold in the winter (no frost or snow). Winters can be rainy and cool, it almost never rains all summer long but it can be foggy and cool. Our usual summer weather may features fog or clouds in the morning clearing by Noon, then bright sunshine all afternoon, and then cooling in the evening. In the summer we can have spells when it is overcast for few days at a time. September and October are frequently our hottest months. In the winter it can by drizzly for days at at time or warm and sunny for days at a time or bright sunny and warm for days at a time. The neighborhood is fabulous. Tree-lined streets, homes with beautiful landscaping, lots of flowers even in the winter.

Great place for family .
We loved the breakfast nook, the comfortable living room, the music, the art and artifacts and books, the accommodating dining room , the lovely flowers, and the good location.
Can't imagine a better place to stay in Berkeley
I used to live in this neighborhood, about six blocks away, for 20 years. Staying here is a bit like returning to my old much-loved home that's been reincarnated in a somewhat larger and slightly posher version. We'll be back!
Great Vacation Home
The perfect home in a central location near all the main attractions in and around San Francisco. This home is well equipped with every nice quality pots, pans, dishes, flatware, and glassware. Well supplied spice pantry and basic staples supplied at check in so you don't have to head straight to the grocery store if you don't want to. Great rates and Bob, and Margarita were readily available to answer any questions we had. This 2 bedroom 1 bath home was the perfect vacation home for our needs. The tub /shower unit was amazing. Great water pressure, and hot water supply. Great home in a great location. Will definitely stay here again if I'm ever in the area again. LOVED it...
thank you for the kind review and thanks for taking good care of our house! of course we would be happy to have you return
All the comforts and beauty of home
The home is beautiful and immaculate. It is also well stocked with everything you might need and then some. The owners left us many goodies in the way of food and drink and we appreciated that. Great shower. Lovely residential neighborhood. It was convenient for us near family we were visiting.
Perfect for our needs
Perfect for our needs. Well equipped kitchen, good location for walking to stores and restaurants. Owners provided coffee, wine, and fruit for our first night, which was appreciated until we made it to the store.
Lovely home away from home
We booked this property months in advance of our sons UCB commencement, knowing that accommodations book quickly for that time, we were very pleased with location, even though we had a car, it was a nice stroll to both gourmet getto and Solano Ave eateries. The home was well equipped in the kitchen, had laundry and linens were plentiful. Bob was easy to contact if we had an issue (we had none). We appreciated that fruit, bread/butter, coffee was in the house when we arrived (& wine) as we had arrived later than expected and doing a store run was the last thing we wanted to do late at night. Beds were comfortable and heating was preset for coziness. Would highly recommend for a week or longer stay.
Thanks for the review. We are glad you enjoyed the house and thanks for taking good care of it! Best wishes - hope you return some time
