About Terri Giamartino

I am a small business owner living in Berkeley for the last 35 years. I am an avid martial artist and have owned a martial arts studio since 1993. I love the outdoors, gardening, cooking and art.

I love to travel, and entertain and can show you the all the nooks and crannies you might not find on your own. Staying at our home will not disappoint! We are a household of 4. Our boys are college age but living at home and working. We are busy professionals and aren't always around, but one of us works frequently in the garden, so we are around using the yard. There is plenty of space for privacy and also opportunities to socialize some if it is preferred.

Terri Giamartino purchased this apartment in 1985

Beautiful flat in downtown Berkeley

  • 5 of 5

Pam and Terri are very nice and helpful owners. Their flat has everything you need for an amazing stay in the bay. If there is any problem, they helped immediately. The apartment very close to Bart and other public transport but still quiet. Parking is no problem either.

Great little place

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Berkeley apartment. The location was very quiet and very close to the UCal Berkeley campus but still close to the city of San Francisco. We appreciated the fan since it was hot the first night. It was also nice to have use of the washer and dryer during our stay.The queen bed in the master bedroom has seen better days but we made it work. Other than that everything was wonderful. Thanks!

Enjoying Berkeley

  • 5 of 5

A few snags, but the owners and their family are so amazingly kind and responsive. We babysat our newborn grandson who cried at times. The owners, their family and other guests were lovely. We had a wonderful time and appreciated their graciousness and spacious and accommodating apartment.

The big surprise for us was to stumble on the Berkeley Rep Theater just down the street where we enjoyed quality productions.

Cute and quiet place👌🏾

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our one week stay at Terri and Pam's place.

Like the fact that place had everything we needed for such a long stay-kitchen amenities and the bathroom even had one of those soap dispenser combo. That to me was a plus.

Very convenient to every thing.

I would suggest they have the vents cleaned though.

Thoroughly enjoyed staying here and would most likely stay here again and again.

Owner's Response: Glad you and your family enjoyed your stay. I enjoyed running into everyone as we all came and went. Thank you for mentioning the heater vents. I don't always look up at the ceiling but we did get them cleaned!
