Our host Lucy is almost more adorable than her home. She is very sweet, super accommodating and always trying to make sure that your stay, in her home, is a great stay. From the very beginning, I knew we had chosen the perfect place. When you see it for the first time, it is like something out of a woodland storybook. Trust me, people walking by would stop and take pictures of it. Once inside, it is a wonderfully cozy home, filled with light. Everything you need is right at your fingertips. Oh, and if you need the grocery store, laundry, shops, movies, restaurants, etc...the "city" is just a short drive away (Downtown Berkeley is 10 mins and San Francisco is about 20mins w/o traffic). Oh, and just in case you were wondering about the houseboat rocking, for those of us who get sea-sick, this was never an issue for me....it barely moves. I absolutely LOVE this home and would stay here again in a heartbeat. We were quite sad to leave....I can see why Lucy lives here.
