Great little place in Berkeley. Sweet little entry patio and a grass lawn.
Nice place, comfortable, clean, sunny, lots of places nearby to buy food, not too far from North Berkeley BART station - would stay there again.
My boyfriend and I spent the weekend in this studio and it was indeed very cozy and bright, however, it is a small space and the bed is twin size so it was a bit tricky to get in and out of (especially from the loft).
The living room space has a couch and corner desk where I noticed an iPod deck and vegetarian cookbooks. Bring your own laptop & speakers if you need some form of media entertainment.
Bathroom is full size and note that it takes a few seconds for the lights to turn on (but it's not out!).
Kitchen is quite small but we were able to make do with the stove top and oven (no microwave). Most of the cups and plates are stored up high on the shelves and I'm pretty short (5'2") so had my 6' boyfriend not been with me, I wouldn't have been able to reach the utensils and pots.
Besides those small details, it really is a lovely little place and provides the basics for anyone who is traveling and just needs a place to crash for a night or two. The location is great (one away from University, few blocks away from BART, 5 min drive to freeway) and it is in a gated complex so it is very secure and safe (and parking was no issue). And what may have gotten to me the most about the studio were the string lights that Alex uses to weave around the loft/staircase :)
But most importantly, Alex is great at communication which I think is really key! He is quick and responsive and I totally appreciated that about him.
