Betsy's place was sweet and private. Love the twisted tree. Wish we had more time to enjoy.

Betsy was such a great host. Our stay at her place was a pleasure. Lovely place with awesome garden view and very nice location. Betsy was so kind and did not hesitate to provide helpful suggestions to me and my husband when we asked her. Would love to stay again.

The best thing about staying at Betsy's place was that she was very nice with us, she help us with useful tips about the city and things to do.

Lovely spot. Betsy was a caring host and made sure we were all set after our long difficult day with the airlines! We arrived after dark and were pleased to find a really well lit path to the door. Amenities are true to the description. In the morning when we opened the curtains to the slider we were greeted with a lovely serene garden beyond the patio. Truly a garden retreat. We will definitely stay there again. Thanks, Betsy!

Perfect place for a getaway when you still might want to do a couple things. Exactly how it's pictured and described which hasn't always been the case for us with other places. Betsy was so nice and the studio was perfect for our weekend getaway. The surroundings are beautiful, it's quiet, and walking anywhere is just as nice. Loved the proximity to Solano Ave and areas of Berkeley we've never seen. So close to Tilden park. . . Shall I go on? We will stay here whenever we come to the Bay Area.

Betsy is a wonderful host - communicative, very thoughtful and welcoming. The garden is truly serene & very beautiful, the flat fantastically located (walking distance to UC Berkeley & loads of great food places), the neighborhood lovely and everything perfectly set up for a long stay. Just hope I can return! Highly recommended - thank you so much Betsy for a perfect stay.
