My wife and I and our 13 year-old daughter had a delightful 5-day stay at the Grawin House. The description of the apartment and complete ammenities was 100% accurate; the place was so comfortable and ready, just like home. Our hosts had even installed a printer as a convenence for people who needed to print out airline documents. The photographs did not entirely do the place justice, especially the spaciousness, homey comfort, and the lovely intimacy of the courtyard and small fountain in the back. All the attractions of the neighborhood, including the "Gourmet Ghetto" were just a leisurely stroll out the door, only 2 blocks away, and the Berkeley campus and other attractions were accessible by public transport or a nice walk. Not included in the listing was the incredible helpfulness of the owners who gladly shared their knowledge of the sights and attractions of the area, and made sure that we were comfortable and could find everything we needed to make our stay pleasant. Although the apartment is in a bustling residential neighborhood durng the day, I was never disturbed, although I'm very sensitive to noise, and I slept like a baby every night. You can easily get about without a car since everything you need is a short and very pleasant walk and the neighborhood is safe, and public transport is readily available for longer trips. If you have a car, talk to the owners about parking. They can advise you. The damage deposit was promptly refunded. What more could one want when in Berkeley! Yes, we'll be back.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here.The space is tasteful,clean and bright and the location is perfect.The neighborhood is on the quiet edge of the college scene yet within walking distance to restaurants,shops,UC.The owners,Petra and Gary,live here also in this large home.She grew up in it and it really shows in the character of the home.They are kind and friendly.I will stay here again when visiting Berkeley.
Excellento location and environment.
We stayed in this apartment for most of a week and enjoyed it thoroughly. The owners were so helpful and sweet. The apartment was clean and comfortable with good light. The location is perfect, just off the most amazing street of restaurants I've ever seen. We would definitely stay there again!
I stayed here with my family (4 people) for approximately 2 weeks. We arrived 11 days late from the first day of booking, but the host has been kindly refunded (without being asked) those unattended 11 days of the place. The host prepared some food in the house (they asked me what I want) and when I arrived, the food is there. The place is really clean, the neighbor is really warm (they gave me self-baked cookies which are yummy), and it's really convenient for short/long stay. I highly recommend the place for any upcoming guests! :)
Our family of four stayed for two delightful weeks at the Grawin House, and we had a marvelous time. The apartment is spacious and elegant, with all you could want for a rental in Berkeley: a beautiful fully equipped kitchen with a gorgeous Japanese maple outside the window, two roomy sofas and generous bookcase space in the living room, an incredibly comfortable pillowtop memory foam mattress in the master bedroom, and a quiet back bedroom well suited to children. The owner has thought of everything one could want in a short-term rental and is very incredibly helpful and generous. The neighborhood is a quick walk to wonderful restaurants, grocery stores, drugstores, playgrounds, the university campus, and an amazing weekly farmers' market. No car needed--the house is near several bus lines and is a 10 minute walk from the subway that goes to San Francisco. We especially appreciated that young children are welcome at the house--ours enjoyed the toys provided, playing in the fountain, and watering the lovely garden. If you are looking for a quiet, comfortable, tastefully appointed apartment in a safe neighborhood for a visit to the Bay Area, you should stay at the Grawin House. We hope to return there on a future visit to Berkeley. Loved it!
