Great, homey, usable space for two people who are close. Love the exhaust fan and window in bath.

  • 4 of 5

Had a wonderful five-night stay in Patty’s studio, which was homey clean (if not hotel-clean) and cosy comfortable. Well-located to Elmwood shops and restaurants, as well as those near Rockridge —try Zachary’s stuffed pizza. You don’t need a car, tho we uber/lfted at night. Made good use of the space heater, appreciated the spacious bathroom, the toiletries and the tv, which kept me plugged in. Wifi good. The floor rugs amd shower curtain could do with a professional cleaning, and really, that’s my only picky point. Construction going on next door as well as forest fires, so could not really use the deck —but hardly anyone’s fault. Didnt cook but took back leftovers and used kettle for tea. Would stay again, if she’ll have me.

Great location and clean!

  • 5 of 5

We decided last minute to visit our son who attends UC Berkeley. We wanted to be close to campus and to downtown. This little studio apartment fit out needs perfectly. Patty is super nice and easy to work with. It is very clean and the bed is comfortable. The kitchen is just for the basics...not really for major cooking. The bathroom is a nice size with a great working shower. We walked to coffee shops and to a bar. The only suggestion I would give is to have a few more Ammeties such as body lotion and body wash. These items are hard to bring on carry-on because no small sizes are available. Otherwise and great apartment and would stay there again!

Great find!

  • 5 of 5

Overall, I couldn't be happier with how the rental turned out! :) The apartment was roomy and airy (and nice and cool!). I really appreciated the little extras (supplies to make pour-over coffee, shampoo/conditioner/shaving cream, etc.) that Patty provided. I stayed here for a week while doing research at UC Berkeley, and it was within walking distance of campus. The surrounding neighborhood is nice and the property is close to coffee shops, restaurants, and grocery stores!

Charming with a Perfect Mattress!

  • 4 of 5

We spent 3 nights at this Elmwood vacation rental in late August. It was very charming and fairly private. It had a really great mattress which I feel is important. The neighborhood is very charming with great restaurants and shopping. It is cozy but a bit tight for 2 people. We still enjoyed our stay despite the tight or cozy space!

This unit is located within my main house (with separate entrance) I also offer a stand alone cottage (VRBO #758790) that can hold 4 people. Both units can be rented for larger parties. Great for someone looking for clean, cheery, comfortable accommodations in a very convenient location.
