Great Little Gem!
Maria and her home were lovely. The home is central to traveling all over the east bay and SF. We enjoyed our time and only wish we could have rested there more.
cosy and homely
a lovely property with gorgeous views, not so close to San Francisco, but suited us and our travels perfectly. Our hosts provided us with every requirement, snuggly bathrobes, extensive breakfast options including fresh fruit. Teas aplenty (fab for the Britishers)!
The Snape family were great guests. They had a very busy sightseeing schedule and seemed to enjoy the area. We’d welcome them back anytime. Thanks Giulia, Mike and Louisa for choosing us for your stay and your nice review!
Lovely cottage, lovely people
If I could give more than 5 stars I would. Maria was so accommodating from the beginning and returned messages promptly. The cottage is lovely, converted into two bedrooms and a bath in half of their garage. It was white-glove clean, and everything we could possibly need was there from dishes, to fruit , yogurt, milk and OJ in the fridge. Maria’s hospitality was amazing and we would return here in a heartbeat. BTW her dogs are sweet as can be too!
Cathy, her husband and son were terrific guests. Very personable, great communication and we loved having them stay with us. The little guesthouse was left immaculate and we were sorry to see them leave!
I apologize for the late review Cathy but I wanted to make sure I wrote one. Thanks so much for staying with us and you will be welcome back anytime!
Best from Maria, Chris, Largo and Storm
Great stay at Maria's private, quiet apartment
We had an excellent stay at Maria's apartment, while getting ready to drop off our son for his freshman year at Cal. The beds were comfortable, everything was extremely clean, and Maria stocked the mini fridge with nice breakfast items as well as coffee and tea. Maria was super welcoming and helpful with our specific requests, you'll also get to hug her Bernise Mtn dogs if you'd like. Easy access to Tilden Park hikes, we look forward to visiting again.
Thank you Anne, it was a pleasure meeting you and you all were great guests. We look forward to your return!
Everything you need is right there. Maria is a warm and charming host, and goes out of her way to welcome you.
Thank you Donna, your son was an excellent guest. We hope to meet him again.
My daughter and I stayed here so she could check out UC Berkeley grad school. The two-room, one bath guesthouse was perfect for us. Safe, quiet, and convenient. Our hosts supplied all the comforts of home and the garden and yard are gorgeous. Across the street is an enormous memorial garden with roads to stroll and enjoy the view of the bay. The spot is close to a BART stop and a short drive to funky dining and shopping, and downtown Berkeley is easy to get to. We were easily able to head into San Francisco for sight seeing and museum visits. This was our first Homeway stay and I definitely started at the top! I hope to visit again.
Andrea, you and your daughter were wonderful guests. You were my first VRBO (HomeAway) guests and I could not have wished for any better!
Thank you for choosing us for your stay, taking such great care of our little guesthouse and being so warm and personable.
We highly recommend you as guests and welcome you back anytime!
