There are very few times when an apartment is better than expected. This apartment is one of them! I know the apartment looks amazing on the pictures: but believe me, it is better! William, the owner is an amazing man who is not only extremely helpful, but also very generous. The apartment is equipped with so much stuff that you do not need to buy anything from anywhere. Everything is in perfect shape from the TV to all the other gadgets and even the neighbourhood is amazing: extremely quiet and friendly. Brilliant experience! I actually felt really bad leaving (I had to leave early and Bill immediately reduced the thing by a month, no problem at all). I hope to stay here again when I come back to Berkeley.
More than worth the price.
The apartment was great. very clean and conveniet with all the things we needed.
I have used AIRB&B in three other occasions. This was my first in an apartment. A great experience. The location is quiet. This is a newly completed unit with everything including a super kitchen with lots of equipment. Too bad we ate out so much and great restaurants. Nice bathroom. Firm beds. Bill and Tina were easily available. I would repeat this experience.
A great apartment with a well equipped kitchen, nice bathroom and spacious bedroom and livingroom. The neighbourhood is suburban quiet and close to the bus stop. Bill is a great host offering assistance if needed. I had a very nice three month stay there, and I recommend the apartment to prospective visitors!
I came to Berkeley from New Jersey to be with my daughter who was having her first baby. I needed an apartment that was convenient and comfortable. This apartment more then exceeded my expectations. It was in a lovely neighborhood within walking distance of coffee shops, stores and restaurants. It was modern with a comfy bed, nice kitchen, great shower and good TV. After spending the days with my daughter I could come back and truly relax in this apartment!
The apartment on Mabel has recently been renovated to the brand new level. It is very clean, quiet and comfortable. If you have a car there is not a parking problem. It is not really walking distance to BART but there is a bus stop at the corner. We were visiting our daughter-student at Berkeley and it was perfect for our needs. We would certainly return.
Great Place, Great Location, Great hosting !!
I just stayed for a month while working temporarily in the Richmond area and had a great experience. I would highly recommend the apartment, and Bill and Tina are great! The apartment was very clean and modern, and the kitchen is fully stocked, including a dishwasher. It was actually larger than I expected from the pictures. Bill was nice enough to pick me up from the Berkeley BART, which was great after a long trip. He showed me around the apartment and made sure I was all set. The internet was really fast and I loved having all of the cable tv channels. I met the guys living upstairs and they are really nice. Having laundry right down the hall was great.
I took the 72 bus to Richmond everyday, which was fine but looking back having a car would have been nice in my particular case (though I would much rather take the BART if you are going into San Francisco). The 49 is also an excellent bus line that travels to UC Berkeley (and the Berkeley BART) every half hour and stops a short block and a half from the apartment.
Overall I had a great experience. Thanks!
Very nice apartment,
Great apartment located close to bus and several cafes. Lovely modern updated kitchen, bath, bedroom, and living room. Kitchen was well equipped and washer/dryer available for small fee. William and Tina were extremely helpful and available to answer any questions I had. Very much appreciate William picking us up from the BART station after a long, cross-country trip.
