Our 3-bed home has wonderful light, a big kitchen, a piano, and a large, sunny garden filled with veggies and Calif. natives. We're easy walking distance to a big park, great supermarket, restaurants and cafes, and transit to SF and Oakland.

The space

Beautiful 3-bed/1-bath home in southwest Berkeley on a quiet blocked-off street one block from San Pablo Park.

Home has master bedroom with a queen bed, spare room with a full-size futon (and piano), and kids' room with two bunks (and lots of toys and games).

Includes fully equipped large kitchen with big dining table, dishwasher and microwave; washer and dryer; TV, DVD and wifi (but no cable); a large sunny backyard with patio and lots of fruits and veggies as well as California natives - and a fully enclosed trampoline.

3 blocks from the amazing Berkeley Bowl supermarket & cafe, 4 blocks from great Vietnamese, Korean and Italian restaurants (and around the corner from a Walgreens).

20 mins walk to Ashby BART, 3 minutes to bus stops to San Francisco (commuter hours) and Downtown Oakland. Lots of street parking. Very bicycle friendly neighborhood. Easy, free street parking.

Great neighbors, including in our rental unit downstairs.

All communications were good. The house was fine in that it was a private residence in which owners were just willing to let people stay there while they were gone. If one were looking for a bit nicer place than just a good place to crash I would probably look elsewhere. Neighborhood was nothing to write home about. I'm not knocking this place per se, it's just a place to crash with a kitchen and some extra beds but it has no other attractions that would make one want to hang out there. Fantastic book collection, though.

The house was just as listed. We enjoyed our stay here with our four month old infant. All interaction was via email, which was perfect for us, as we weren't expecting a lot of interaction with our host. The directions for all things in the house was very well explained and we really appreciated them! The house itself is a lovely craftsman home that is evidently well loved and cared for. The collections of books throughout the house was also a great plus, as we are avid readers ourselves. We spent most of our days out and about, visiting with friends but coming back "home" at night was perfectly safe. The neighborhood was wonderful to take walks - especially to the Berkeley Bowl West (which I fell in love with) and 900 Grayson for breakfast. We will be back soon enough and will look for this home to be available again! And if not available, we'd love to just come visit the family and meet them in person!

We had a pleasant experience staying at this house, which has a cozy feel and plenty of room. The property listing is very accurate. The house is located in a safe, friendly neighborhood, and is a great option if traveling to San Francisco, Napa, or Oakland. Our host, Patrick, was great and easy to work with. We would definitely stay there again!
