I stayed here for 8 weeks while doing a travel nurse assignment in Berkeley. It worked out nicely but might be a better choice for a shorter stay. It is cute, quiet, and safe. Tanya was helpful in smoothing out the few glitches I had with the internet. It is a 3 minute walk to the nearest bus stop, but not close to the BART. Parking was tricky for me since I got home from work around midnight. I had to park about 3-5 blocks away and walk. On the bright side I never saw any shady characters or ever felt unsafe. The pictures posted are a little bit deceiving. For example there is no chair or nightstand. If you are looking to stay for a while I would recommend bringing your own dishes for cooking. What's there is a bit limited. Laundry is really convenient and costs $1.25 to wash or dry.
Lake Merritt Getaway is located in a tranquil and calm setting, yet within walking distance to the diverse and bustling community of Lake Merritt; stores, wonderful cafes and restaurants, cinema and, of course, the lake for walking, running. biking and even boating. The apartment offers a home-away-from-home feel with all the needed amenities and easy access to laundry facilities. Tanya is a more than accommodating host, ensuring that your stay is completely comfortable and worry free. Enjoy your relaxing stay. I am sure you will have a wonderful time.
Great place to stay, superb location, very safe and friendly complex. Would recommend.
Lovely place, very safe in a gated community, and convenient with AC transit and Bart nearby! Only complaint is that Tanya does not wish to own a microwave, so you'll have to use the oven to heat up food, which takes longer.
