The space

This apartment is the top floor of a stand-alone house on a residential street in Berkeley, one block from Shattuck Ave and the Gourmet Ghetto, including Chez Panisse, Corso, Cesar, Caravaggio Gelateria, Gregoire, the Cheeseboard, Phil's Coffee, the original Peet's Coffee, and many more fabulous Berkeley establishments. Walgreen's and an upscale grocery store (was Andronico's, now is called "Safeway Neighborhood Market") are also a block away so you can stock up for your stay.

A 10 minute walk takes you to downtown Berkeley where there is more shopping, more restaurants, and the BART (subway); a 5 minute walk takes you to the north side of the UC Berkeley campus. Downtown San Francisco is a 20 minute BART ride or a 25 minute drive away.

Elliot's place is just wonderful - we were so happy that we thought to look outside San Francisco hotels for our visit with our 4 and 5 - year old boys. The home is in a quiet neighbourhood but close to a lot of great restaurants that we really enjoyed visiting. It felt like such…

This was our first time renting via Airbnb, and it was a most pleasing experience. The location cannot be more perfect, the upper end of Shattuck Ave, in the Gourmet Ghetto. The 2BR was large enough for our family of 4, as we visited colleges for our daughter. It's much roomie…

Response from Elliot:
Hi Carol -- Thanks for the great review! Sorry for the blanket issue -- I had a miscommunication with my wife and I thought that an additional comforter had been left out for you guys. Hope it wasn't too chilly! Regarding the dishes -- they're from Bed Bath & Beyond. We purchased them over 6 years ago, though! Regarding the furniture, all of the tables in the apartment were actually made by me--the coffee table, dining table, end tables, and sideboard. I'm glad you liked them. Similar designs can be found at a place like Room & Board.

Our stay at Elliot's place was delightful. Highly recommended. A perfect location, very comfortable and tastefully decorated apartment. Four of us stayed there for a long weekend and we all felt sad to leave. We come to Berkeley frequently and I'm sure we'll be staying there aga…
