”The apartment is super comfortable, spacious and clean. Also various amenities and utensils and basic furniture come with the apartment, I could start my new usual life in Berkeley immediately after the arrival. It is not only convenient but also economically reasonable for person like me stay for short term (a few months). I definitely recommend someone who stay in Berkeley for short to mid-term to stay here.”

“We spent 3 months in your beautiful flat, it was great. Very close from everything, not far from the Bart and the Safeway. For students it’s perfect, it’s just near the UC Berkeley Campus. The beds are very comfortable, the kitchen is nice, there are lovely plants in the flat, and the balcony was perfect for sunny days!”
— Fantine Faviez, France
“Excellent location, cozy place! AHR’s place was wonderful, very clean, and has everything you need to just grab your bags and go in. It has everything that was listed, except that the website didn’t stress enough the GREAT location it has! Its walkable everywhere and packed with restaurants nearby, so there’s not even a need to cook (although the kitchen had everything and we cooked most days). Issa (AHR) is a super host, proactively checking with us if everything was ok, or did we need something else. Internet is super fast and the ceiling fan cooled the environment promptly. I would def. stay again at this place and would recommend to people visiting the area.”

“My son Andrew had the opportunity of being hosted for a month and
a half during the summer by Issa (AHR) and absolutely loved his
accommodation and the good company of Issa and her team. The
room they offered him was as welcoming and comfortable as the rest
of their house. Bathroom and kitchen had all necessary conveniences
and were always very clean. Plus, Issa made the most to make him
feel at home. She and her team were always eager to share moments
together with him, converse, and have some good laughs. Andrew
was in Berkeley to spend time at the Law School and the location of
Issa’s apartment was ideal. Set in the lovely neighborhood of
Elmwood, it is just a few minutes away from campus and not far from
the shopping district of Elmwood, where one can find very nice cafes,
corner stores, and grocery stores. When I asked Andrew about his
experience, he told me not only that is exceeded by far his
expectations, but that in light of it he could not recommend staying
as Issa’s guest with more enthusiasm and conviction. Whoever is
looking for an accommodation in Berkeley, should not miss the
chance of contact Issa and inquiring on the availability of her
