Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at Eileen and Johannes' house for 2 weeks in September. It was impeccably clean and well maintained as shown in the pictures. It was also spacious and equipped with everything we needed. The backyard was a treat for warm nights. It felt like staying at our parent's house. Within walking distance were fabulous farmer's market, as well as cafes and grocery stores.

If you want to see more of the bay area, BART is about 10 minutes walk away. Last but not least, Eileen and Johannes were wonderful host and went out of their ways to accommodate our family of 3. They were very prompt in their responses as well. We would highly recommend their place to anyone who wants to experience Berkeley like a local. You won't be disappointed.

Owner's Response: My husband and I are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at our house. We always try to give our guests a detailed tour so they can be comfortable that they know their way around all the house idiosyncrasies before we give it over to them.

We very happy we could meet the whole family, and have them be able to leisurely check out the Berkeley area where their daughter will be a visiting student this whole next year at UCB.

We also wish you could have stayed longer. You were the perfect guests.

Lovely home

  • 5 of 5
This home is exactly as presented in the pictures. The owners not only were very responsive when I felt a need to call them, they were actually appreciative! The backyard is wonderful and our 4 year old grandson loved playing in it. The house is about a 10 minute walk from the Ashby Bart station a d my daughter and son-in-law used it frequently.

My husband and I shared the house with my daughter and her family and we did not feel crowded in any way.

An added advantage for us was that my older granddaughter who lives in B erkeley could walk to the house after her day at ballet camp!

For anyone like us who has family living in Berkeley this house is a wonderful alternative to a hotel.

Excellent for graduation

  • 5 of 5
Eileen's house is really quite lovely, very old school Berkeley. The garden is peaceful, and while it is a short ride from campus craziness, it is not in it.
It was perfect for graduation and running to the stores on the westside for food and drink. I had originally regretted that we were not on the eastside, but gee it worked out well. Guests could park. Very quiet. Lovely neighbors. And unlike so much of Berkeley, we could leave a case of wine in the car as we unloaded the vehicle without losing it. Try that anywhere east of Shattuck.
The cab ride to Ashby Bart was $7.00 with tip, and we went to a museum exhibit and a Giants game as well.

Owner's Response: We were very happy that the renters enjoyed their stay at our Berkeley Craftsman Style home. We also appreciate the solidness of the construction of our house — over 106 years old.

We acknowledge that our renters had very similar responses to the location of our property as we do. It is near the university and Telegraph Avenue exuberance but it is not part of it. And yet the convenience of our location for your everyday needs is wonderful.

The BART and freeways are easily accessible. The Ashby BART is actually 5 blocks, about a 10 minute walk.

We look forward to you considering our house for your future vacation.

Activity and Interests

We are within walking distance of downtown Berkeley and the Ashby Bart Station. Travel time to SF by car and public transportation is about 20 minutes.

Berkeley is a town which is urban in feel, yet is small enough to walk around in. We have great movie theatres within a fifteen minute walk, at least three in downtown Berkeley alone.

We have a beautiful park called Tilden Park which has wonderful hiking, and the Lawrence Hall of Science.

Of course, we have our proudest possession, the University of California at Berkeley, within a thirty minute walk — and Zellerbach Hall, the Berkeley Art Museum, Pacific Film Archives, etc. The list goes on.

Berkeley has terrific restaurants of every ethnicity — mostly Mom and Pop restaurants. People come from miles around just to go to our restaurants. (We will leave you our favorite suggestions on the kitchen table.)
