Cool Neighborhood Apartment
The owners have done a really great renovation of this Victorian in a gentrifying part of Berkeley. The high ceilings and natural light in the space are great; as is the deck. The water pressure in the multi-headed shower/tub was excellent. We were very comfortable here and found it to be a great launch pad for exploring Berkeley and San Francisco. Owners were very responsive answering our questions. One recommendation for improvement: location (mounted too high for me at 5'-3" tall) and type of key box was hard for me to both reach and to read the numbers (which were very small). If my 13-year old was not there to help me see the numbers, we would have had a tough time getting into the building at the end of our full day of travel.
Perfect location in Berkeley!
This upstairs Victorian flat, with a large outside porch space off the LR, plus backyard access, suited my needs perfectly. The location is easy walking distance to 4th Street shops, Whole Foods, and San Pablo restaurants, and is only one block from University Avenue. The property managers were very helpful. The neighborhood is safe and friendly.. Two large bedrooms, well-appointed kitchen. I would definitely stay again.
It was just ok
As may be reflected on the listing, as owners we don't have much impetus or time to punish travelling guests with reviews and find the forced review system by Expedia a bit contrived to particpate in. Kind of ironic that one of the only times I chose to leave a review in order to read the guest's, "just ok" is what we received - in the midst of our otherwise high ratings and repeat guests who wish to return again. No specifics to address with our housekeeping or any accounting of positive aspects of the flat on which other reviews concur. This guest did stain many towels we provided (8) which needed to be replaced; a fact I refrained from citing but don't feel now need be witheld. We aim to be flexible, responsive and please all our guests. This guest did not contact us about any dissatisfcation while there, if they had we would have responded. I guess we'll either attempt to solicit more guests reviews, since our communications and interactions have been overwhlemingly positive, or go back to ignoring this aspect of VRBO and figure folks will be able to make accurate determinations on their own. Nonetheless, thank you for staying at Mitchell House.
Charming home away from home!
The apt. was everything we needed for this cousins' getaway in the bay area. It was very clean for the most part except for 2 minor items. We found old moldy coffee grounds in the coffee maker from the last visitors and the shower curtain could use a change, but they were very minor items. The beds were comfy, the shower was amazing and the tub was perfect for a soak at the end of a busy day of sightseeing so don't forget the bath oil if you enjoy a bath! I appreciated that there were lots of towels available too. We didn't cook in the place, but it seemed to be well-stocked with kitchen items and the little porch was a lovely outdoor space to have morning coffee. We had an issue with the toilet during our stay, but the issue was resolved with just a few texts! We made the street parking work for us, but I would recommend reserving the available off-street parking if you want to be safe. The neighborhood is peaceful, but trains do go by in the near distance so if you have the windows open you will hear them at all hours of the day and night. I didn't mind them, but some people might. Also, be aware the apartment (along with all of Berkeley having a second-hand smoke ban, I learned on this trip) is non-smoking. I will definitely be recommending this place to friends and family travelling to the bay area and will stay here on my next visit!
Lovely apartment in diverse neighborhood
Very nice. Close to good restaurants, BART, freeway (but not too close). A delight!
Comfortable and charming
An easy walk to many of our Berkeley favorites and close to our family there. Glad we reserved parking on the driveway since when coming back after 10pm the street parking was a little tight
