    Quiet 3 Room Flat Prime Elmwood District



    Located in the Elmwood District of Berkeley. This is a wonderful location and perfect place for visiting CAL Parents and fans who don't want to stay in San Francisco after Cal Football games. The best East Bay location, situated within short walki …


      My daughter and I stayed in this flat a few months ago. We needed a quiet place to stay while in town for a family wedding at the Clairmont Hotel. We stayed 3 days, 2 nights, and had a wonderful time using the flat as our base for shopping in San Francisco, running around on College Avenue for the wedding, and walking to the hotel for the rehearsal dinner and the reception. The ad is correct—you don’t need a car to get around! The flat is perfect for 1 or 2 people, even 3 because there’s a pull out sofa bed in the small entryway “living room”. Doors separate each room from the next, allowing for quiet reading and privacy from one’s party. The kitchen is well equipped (there’s even an Espresso Maker) and I enjoyed the fresh Peet’s Coffee that James left for us in a basket with a good bottle of Wine and other treats. The flat is super cute, old and charming. It was immaculate, inviting, and a pleasure to stay there. Hotel choices in Berkeley, we found, range from awful to super expensive. This was just right for us. I promised James a review, and here it is, as I book the flat for a return visit in early 2013.
      My mom and I stayed here while visiting friends and family in the Bay Area, and it was perfect for us! It's cute, clean, quaint and so much better than a hotel. To give some perspective, the main picture shows the front (Dutch) door to the flat on the left end of the front porch, and the flat itself is arranged in a shotgun manner. The location was amazing - within very easy walking distance of College Ave (great food - Elm Wood Cafe, Shen Hua, Mediternee are fantastic; shopping, coffee, necessities, etc) and a little longer walk to Rockridge. The convertible couch/bed was as comfortable as pull out sofas can be (a little springy, but overall, fine), and the main bedroom bed was super firm, but really comfortable. Plenty of dresser and closet space, nice desk and fast Wifi to boot. The bathroom was spacious for such a small place, and the two of us had plenty of room. I could see 3-4 people staying here for a visit, if they really like each other. The kitchen was just enough, adequately stocked with flat ware, etc. James even provided a small gift basket for our arrival with treats and coffee. We ended up needing to leave a day early, and James was very accommodating. It was a great stay, and we'll certainly be back! Thanks, James!
