Quiet, safe neighborhood w/friendly neighbors. Great for families. Home was well stocked with home goods to use (wide variety of cooking supplies, bath supplies, children's books/play things. Everything was clean/cleaned upon arrival. Hosts were very easy to deal with and communicate well and with quick response time. Would absolutely stay again!

The house could not have been more comfortable. We felt immediately at home both because the home is decorated so warmly and comfortably and it had everything we could possibly need. Great location, 20 minute walk to the BART which makes it very convenient. Close to the gourmet ghetto and lots of great restaurants. This is the BEST Airbnb we've stayed at!

Buddy's house was the perfect fit for our family. We were 4 adults, a 4 yr old and an 8 month old. The entire home was fully stocked with all the amenities. Check in and check out was seamless and the house manual was thorough. Buddy was prompt with communication. One of the rooms included a trundle, a crib and a pack n play. The playset equipment in the backyard and a playroom stocked with toys was perfect for the kids. The exercise room was also great to access. The house is spacious and we were able to comfortably host family and friends over for dinner. The location is ideal with many options in walking distance including parks/playgrounds, grocery/drug stores, restaurants and entertainment. We would highly recommend Buddy's home to anyone traveling with kids and/or anyone looking for a place in the middle of all that Berkeley has to offer.

We had such a great time at Buddy's house. It was perfect for our party of 6. The children (ages 2-9) called it the "fun house" and wanted to live there. Everything we needed was available, from a variety of beds and bedroom layouts to toys and games and a fully stocked kitchen. There are all kinds of shops and restaurants within walking distance. We only used the downtown Berkeley Bart station, which was a 15-20 minute walk or an inexpensive uber ride. Buddy was very responsive to our questions and is overall an excellent host. We appreciated the opportunity to stay here.
