From renters Line and Eiliv, who are available as a reference: We rented this beautiful house in Elmwood-Claremont neighborhood. Great location in walking and bicycle distance to UC Berkeley, and with a variety of shops and restaurants nearby. We travelled as a family of four from Norway. The house was practical and fully equipped for a family, and the neighborhood felt really safe, quiet and family-friendly. The neighbors were all friendly and helpful, and there were several playgrounds within walking distance. In addition the house was beautifully decorated and well-maintained with a nice garden. The garden even has a lemon-tree. Everything was taken care of with well-performed housecleaning included in rent. We have great memories from our time in this house. The campus is a nice bicycle ride away, and there are also great hiking-opportunities in the area.
From Nikhil: We had a comfortable stay in this lovely home; it has lots of space, even for large families. The house is well kept, with every amenity we could think of, including a piano. The neighborhood is quiet, but there are lots of shops and restaurants within a five minute walk. We would certainly live here again whenever we are back in Berkeley.
