We stayed at Maura's place for two months and were very happy there. It felt like home. Maura was a very helpful host, who was quick to respond to questions and provide help as needed. The location is also wonderful - Elmwood is a great neighbourhood. The only downside of the …

Response from Maura:
Hi Dalia, I'm glad you enjoyed the neighborhood, and I'm sorry the upstairs tenants were noisy. I wish you mentioned it to me, but I only heard from you the one time when you said someone made clunking noise over your daughter's room when she was napping in the daytime. If I had know there were other noise issues, I would have addressed them By the way, the property was not "originally one house and turned into apartments." It was built as a duplex, and is a legal duplex. As you may have noticed from the street/s, there are two separate entrances, on two streets, to two duplexes. It was built in 1908, so yes, it is "old," as are all Berkeley properties, for the most part, having been built in the early 1900's. Again, I am sorry you had an issue with hearing people walking and a baby crying. I have not had a complaint about noise before, and would’ve done my best to ensure the upstairs tenants were quieter had I known.

This was a perfect location and a beautiful home for our recent visit to Berkeley. The house is gorgeous, in a quiet location, and well equipped with everything needed including a great selection of teas and some basics in the cupboards when we arrived. We enjoyed the sunny rooms…
