Berkeley Hills Wonder
This was a wonderful place to have stayed, the home upon arrival is stunning and historic. When you reach the apartment, you are met with the perfect view of downtown San Francisco; all the while standing in one of the most beautiful gardens in the neighborhood. The interior of the apartment was just as great as the exterior. Susie, the awesome landlord, has the space perfectly stocked and styled with everything that I was missing from home. In suite laundry, Heat/AC, full spacious kitchen (I cooked Thanksgiving dinner in), and even a small library for an afternoon read whilst catching amazing views from every room. If you have an opportunity to be lucky enough to stay here, take it! I am so lucky to have enjoyed Susie's hospitality and thank her for allowing me to stay in such a wonderful home.

1/5 Terrible

I do not recommend this property. Check-in was problematic. No one was there to open the door. We needed to wait quite sometime to enter the premise. There were gnats, spiders and spider webs throughout the apartment. The apartment was so dusty that it made my son and I sneeze. The entrance of the apartment was filthy. The downstairs garden has a significant amount of dog feces. Dog feces from their dog was also nearby the front entrance door and stairs. Several requests were made for it to be picked up. I was also surprised when they asked if we could pick it up. I made it clear that it was not our dogs that made the mess. There were 2 separate occasions where the owner and one of their family members came into the apartment unannounced, which startled us, making us feel uncomfortable. On the last 3 days, loud construction coming from the upstairs apartment occurred for several hours per day, making it difficult to relax. You can also hear the tenants from the upstairs apartment walking around. We are glad our stay is over.

5/5 Excellent

Bay Area get away
It definitely suited our style of living--remote from the insanity of congested city dwelling, yet close enough to city activities. The apartment unit itself has a very open feel with spectacular views of the bay including the bay bridge and into the city.

5/5 Excellent

Very comfortable home away from home!
So easy to feel at home here...pop a bottle of wine in the fridge and wait for sunset. Easy walk down to the campus and a decent calorie burner coming back up after dinner. Plentiful parking. The stairs down to the unit are steep, but become easier day by day. The unit itself has plenty of space, and useful amenities. Susie and Greg take excellent care of their guests!

4/5 Good
