Total refuge with a lovely backyard garden and Betty is a warm and kind person who made us feel welc

  • 5 of 5

This is a sweet home that began to feel like our home and refuge. I was in a production over two weekends where we stayed in San Francisco due to scheduling so when Monday's came we couldn't wait to get back to Betty's gem of a Berkeley home. It isn't modern in the sense of crisp and stark but with the warm cozy feeling of a home well lived in. Which it is. The garden was delightful and even picked a luscious lemon to make salad dressing from the lemon/lime tree. Great neighborhood and easy to get anywhere in Berkeley by walking or car. Betty is delightful and welcomed us warmly and then gave us privacy but she even came to the show I was in! Very sweet person and I would stay there again in a heartbeat. My partner and I were sad to leave.

Eclectic house in a Great location for UC Berkeley

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this house, the neighborhood was quiet with plenty of street parking. My daughters and I slept very comfortably and loved all of the fun decorations around the house! This home had plenty of the 1900s charm with the clawfoot tub, original stove and the beautiful floors but still had modern amenities you would expect. We would recommend this property and plan on staying here the next time we make it to the Berkeley area!

Very comfortable and charming place.

Felt like we were walking into a cabin in the woods each time we approached the entry. Quiet and peaceful neighborhood. Nice outdoor space for hanging out. Would definitely come back again.

A charming stay in Berkeley

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our five night stay at Betty's house, which was full of character and charming. It was well lived-in, and had everything in the way of a fully equipped kitchen, several eating areas, a comfortable living room, lovely sunny back garden area, and comfortable bedrooms. It was set back from the street and quiet, a little over a mile from the CAL Berkeley campus, and conveniently located for food shopping. Betty was there to greet us on our arrival and was available by text/phone for follow up questions (we only had one, about leftover food, at the end of our stay). I highly recommend Betty's house for your next stay in Berkeley.

Owner's Response: Hi! the remodeling is nearly finished! Neighbors have backyards which are rarely used! Nice feature of the house is that it is a Back House therefore, the views from the House are of open space of back yards, not houses!

Everything was great! Betty was a fantastic host!

  • 5 of 5

The property was terrific. Quaint, private, well furnished, and cozy and comfortable. We love to cook and were able to enjoy lots of time in the well equipped kitchen. The Two bedrooms were upstairs which allowed for quiet time for sleepers and little one as well as an open space living area perfect for night owls. The private backyard was the best! We had a toddler who enjoyed the decks and grass to play on. Nice outdoor seating too and gardens are beautiful. Betty was staying nearby and was always available to answer questions while allowing us our privacy All in all we had a terrific stay in this lovely home. Hope to come back some day. Thank you from all of us!
