    Corey2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful decor and location. Surrounded by fragrant plants and nature (multiple bird species, deer, butterflies, and a friendly cat or two).

    Christopher2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage exceeded all expectations. Everything from the tea and muffins, to waking up in the forest to the sound of the brook. We also saw deer and were visited by two very nice kitties. The location is very quiet and quaint. I recommend Laura & Kiran’s place to ANYONE looking to explore the Bay Area !

    Tim2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place for a quiet getaway. The hot tub, serene location and view of the Bay Bridge were all highlights. 100% recommend!

    Sam2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Super clean, very spacious, only thing I didn't think of that's no where else is the area has a lot of bugs. Not a huge problem inside, but there is a nearby Creek close enough that you can hear flowing water.

    Joshua2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Laura & Kiran's place well exceeded my expectations! It is truly a sanctuary amongst the trees. The hot tub is truly magical. They have created a very intentional and cozy space for their guests full of thoughtful touches! I hope to return! Thanks for everything!

    Tameron2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • The pictures do not do any justice at all. If you're contemplating between a few places in the area, this one is by far the one to experience! You will fall asleep to the sound of the creek right outside your window and wake up to chirping birds. I don't think I heard any other sounds unless I created them. There is also an incredible view of the sunset from the porch/hot tub or from the bed through the windows. Laura was so great and easy to communicate with. Even pushed my check out time so I could enjoy a few extra hours before heading out. What a great find for a last minute road trip!

    Cassie2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Laura and Kiran were fantastic hosts! If you’re looking for peace and quiet, then look no further. Cannot believe this gem is only a 25 minute train ride from SF. We will definitely try to stay here again next time we’re in town

    Looking for a cute, simple space to lay your head at night after exploring San Francisco and the Bay Area--that doesn't cost hundreds of dollars? It's a private room with full-size bed. New blackout curtains for guests are sensitive to the light; High speed WiFi. 10 mins walk to the BART.
    For a price that's half of what the local motel is, you can enjoy an 110 sq. foot room, complete with full sized bed, built-in closet and desk. One of the highlights of the room, besides its vibrant pastel purple walls, is the amount of natural sunlight it gets, which will warm up your day. New blackout curtains for guests are sensitive to the light. The house itself has a new, modern water heater and furnace system-so you will get a great shower, without having to wait 10 minutes for it to warm up. GETTING AROUND We are just a 10 minute walk from the metro station (BART "El Cerrito del Norte") and it's only 30 min train ride into downtown San Francisco. For those driving, we are 5 minutes from the I-80 freeway and 10 mins to Craneway Pavilion. In other words, you can get to San Francisco, or anywhere you want in the Bay Area, for a price that's a tenth of renting a place in San Francisco. LOCAL ACTIVITIES The new indoor pool at the Richmond Aquatic center is just a block away, and the El Cerrito pool (outdoor) is just a few miles a way. There's also a popular scenic bike trail the starts 10 minutes from the house. And yes, you get free WIFI. 60+ MBPS Also, we are a pet and smoke free house.
    Richmond is an up and coming area, with a diverse population. Our neighborhood is very family-oriented with many parks and access to the Bay. El Cerrito Plaza, a large shopping area, is five minutes away by car. 10 minutes away to the BART station. The Neighborhood maybe is not as pretty as you expected but most important thing about this neighborhood is quite and pretty safe!
  • Grace is a great host, I had a very pleasant stay. Thanks to the nearby BART station, it was easy to get to downtown Berkeley by public transport.

    Thomas2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • This was my second stay and was a pleasant stay, which is why I returned. Thank you again for hosting my stay.

    Relax in your own room with high ceilings on the top level of our home. Your room does not share walls with other rooms, and there is a TV on the desk inside the room. Sleep on a soft but firm queen bed over hardwood floors. Short walk to shops, cafes & many public transportation options. 3 min to I-80 ramps 5 min walk to EC Del Norte BART Station 20 min drive to Downtown SF (traffic permitting) 27 min BART ride to Downtown SF 31 min BART ride to/from Oakland International Airport
    Enjoy your own bedroom in our spacious, welcoming home. Located on a separate upper level, your space does not share walls with any other room in the house, making it private yet centrally placed. Feel right at home surrounded by modern and vintage décor. The high ceilings and large windows make for a spacious room; while the hardwood floors and ambient lamps keep things cozy. Get a good nights sleep on a soft but firm Queen size mattress. Dive into a book on the lounge chair + ottoman, or watch TV in your own room. The walls are thick, but no worries, the wifi signal is top-tier. We have some security cameras in some of the shared common spaces (only) for extra safety.
    There are tons of shops, cafes, restaurants, public transportation, etc... within walking and short driving distance. 5 minutes walking distance. El Cerrito Del Norte BART station, Starbucks, Safeway Grocery Store, Walgreens Pharmacy, Supercuts, etc... Restaurants & Cafe's 5-7 minutes walking: Salva-Mex Taqueria (Mexican), Taste of Ethiopia, Tashi Delek (Nepalese), Strings Italian Café, Red Onion Burger Joint, Banana Leaf Thai Cuisine, Uncle Wong's Sichuan & Cantonese Café, Wienerschnitzel Hot Dogs, Frannie's Hawaiian BBQ, Trevino's Mexican-American Café, IHOP, Denny's (American), plus the mainstream fast food spots (Subway, Jack in the Box, McDonalds, pizza, fried chicken... too many to list). 5 minutes driving distance: There are WAY too many spots to list, so I will only name a few which I recommend: Diamo Chinese Restaurant. Because REAL Chinese cuisine is a lost art. El Mono Peruvian food Fat Apples Restaurant & Bakery (!!!) Catahoula Coffee house. Definitely worth the 5 minute drive. Resist the temptation of the 3 Starbucks you will pass along the way... Mayan Mocha. mmm.
  • A cool place.

    Nigel2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Again, this place cannot be beat for location and convenience, as well as price. Being so close to so many public transit options, as well as the familiarity of my home town neighborhood, makes this an "almost homecoming" situation for me.

    Yuepeng2018-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • Eric's place was fantastic to stay in! It is literally 2 blocks away from the BART station so commuting to wherever one wants is seamless. The room was extremely clean and I always felt welcome. I would stay here again no questions about it.

    Christian2018-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • It’s a wonderful place to stay in the Bay Area. The host is polite, responsive to your needs and easy to get in touch with. The room is cosy and clean. Within 5 minutes walk you can access the BART station and grocery stores.

    Rafał2018-08-09T00:00:00Z
  • Eric's house is a great place to stay if you are looking to be close to the city yet away from the chaos/noise. The BART is less than a 5 minute walk and can take you straight into the heart of San Francisco. The home is in a quiet neighborhood with some grocery stores, restaurants, and other shops nearby. The house itself also has all the amenities you would need - fully stocked kitchen, washer/dryer, etc. I would highly recommend staying at Eric's place if you are visiting the Bay Area!

    Jenn2018-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • Eric’s house is a perfect place to live, plenty of house facilities to use and the service is wonderful! I choose this place for the second time and it is still well maintained and very cozy! Everything is homey here!

    Wei2018-06-23T00:00:00Z
  • I'd love to recommend Eric's airbnb because: 1.Location : A min walk to the Bart station , El Cerrito Plaza. Next to the station a grocery store, Starbucks, T-mobile, Donuts shop etc. 2. Price is very competitive. You are lucky if you find a room at Eric's house. 3. Easy check-in/out: Receive neccesary info by email. No need to see the owner. 4. In the kitchen, bathroom, laundry room you can find everything you need for daily life. 5. The owner's family came to the house several times to say Hello to me. I am sorry I was always out.... I stayed for 5 nights and I enjoyed very much. Thank you Eric.

  • It is a very nice stay. The place is clean, tidy and spacious. Landlords are very friendly, responsive and easy to communicate with. Kitchen also provide pan, pots and other cookers, which is very convenient. The overall experience is really nice, the stay here makes our trip more flexible. I highly recommend to stay here.

    Cherie2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed for three months in one of the rooms and it was a wonderful time! It is perfect for a research stay and had everything i needed. The house has a garden and is in a good neighborhood. BART is very close - you can reach Berkeley with it in 10 minutes and San Francisco in 30-40. I worked at the UC Berkeley Campus in Richmond Field station and biked there every day, which was fine, too. The house is very nice, I sometimes used the garden for yoga pratice and there was a lemon tree right in front of my room! The kitchen is clean and perfect for cooking. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone. It is very conveniant and the price is high, but appropriate for the area and the size of the house and rooms.

    Saria2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very recommendable and will not regret the listing. First of all, the location is very convenient, only two blocks from the MRT system El Cerrito Plaza station, just three or four minutes walk. Take the MRT and you can quickly get to most parts of the Bay Area. Secondly, the self-driving car is not worried about parking problems. There are two open-air exclusive parking spaces that can be parked by two self-driving cars. There is no need to park along the roadside. Third, the accommodation space is clean and comfortable. There are only two rented rooms, and the number of users is relatively small. Therefore, the tenant has a large space for use, including a living room and a dining room. Two bathrooms, one with a shower and a bathtub. Fourth, the living facilities are complete. If you like to cook for yourself, the stove is equipped with an oven, a pan and a pan. The interior is equipped with a washer dryer, which is very convenient. Next to El Cerrito Plaza Station, there is a Shopping Center that caters to most of the needs of life, including buying books, shopping, and eating. With WIFI, you can easily contact relatives and friends. Fifth, the landlord lives near the property. If something is responsive, he is very enthusiastic and diligent, and he knows Chinese without any communication barriers.

    Yuejin2019-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • Eric’s place is an excellent choice for a long term stay in the Bay Area. It is in a safe and quite neighborhood super close to BART, but it at the same time is immune from noise. I didn’t hear any weird sound from BART even I kept my window open! This place also provided an impressive amount of amenities and is in a close vicinity of popular shops and restaurants! Eric and his parents always responded to my messages quickly and provided necessary assistance. In a word, I highly recommend this place to the Airbnb community.

    Olli-Pekka2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay for a long period if time. If you are looking for a place to stay in the bay area that's comfortable and accessible this is the place to do it.

    Cody2019-06-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, clean room, all living essentials and cooking utilities provided. Eric’s father is of great help in showing me around and helping me get accustomed to the place. Definitely recommend living here.

    Look out of the large windows at the rose bushes. This room has a blue palette with fish adorning the walls. The fish theme runs into the private bathroom that overlooks the garden. The house has a modern Californian vibe and runs on solar panels.
    There is a garden with couches , umbrellas and a table for you to use. There are also comfortable chairs on the front porch for lounging.
    The room is in a house in a residential area that is very accessible to San Francisco. A natural grocery store is 7 blocks away that has an organic cafe. The nearest BART station is an easy 15-minute walk away. Street parking is always available and free.
  • Great stay at Doris' house. She's a pro at hosting . I LOVED the private bathroom. Great shower and style. The house is styled very well. I enjoyed sitting in the back yard during my short stay. Super quiet at night, too, the bed is very comfortable. Perfect for the traveling professional. Very nice quiet neighborhood.

    Josue2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic stay, a Doris’ welcoming home. The room was cozy- comfortable and came with a beautiful open window. We like to keep the space toasty and warm - which made the accessible room heater super convenient. The shower was a treat, and a great stay to a day of exploring. We loved the location of El Cerrito, it really wraps you up in that neighborhood feel and there’s great bites nearby. Lastly, Doris’ sweet little pupper name Addy, was just a ray of sunshine. Doris’ was wonderfully thoughtful, kind and it was a genuine pleasure being a guest in her home. We would definitely make it a point to spend some time here once again. Many thanks!

    Rachel2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • This place was wonderful! The bathroom was so nice!! Doris was very sweet and welcoming and she has the cutest dog that I absolutely fell in love with! The mattress is a memory foam mattress so it’s hard to get out of bed ;-) Overall a very nice stay. Easy to park and come and go. I’d come back.

    Mahadevan2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • We had a pleasant stay at El Cerrito. The accommodation is very cozy, quiet with very pleasant terrace access. BART is a 5 minute walk away and you get to San Francisco very quickly. Jessica was adorable with us and even suggested that we have the washing machine. A delicate attention. I recommend.

    Laurent2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • For visiting family in the area we just needed a clean, quiet and comfortable place to sleep, including naps for young kids. This worked perfectly and the hosts were communicative and kind. Nice shower and although it does not have a kitchen there is a small area for a food station, a small fridge, microwave and Keurig. The location is great, nice neighborhood too. We would definitely stay again.

    Paula2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great spot if you’re looking to stay away from the bustle of SF and want a peaceful evening! Really helpful host as well!

    Enjoy a relaxing stay in your own Master bedroom with high ceilings, a soft but firm queen bed, and hardwood floors. Your bedroom is on a separate level, meaning no shared walls with other rooms. Adjacent to I-80, only a short walk to many shops, cafes & several public transportation options. 3 min to I-80 ramps 5 min walk to EC Del Norte BART Station 20 min drive to Downtown SF (traffic permitting) 27 min BART ride to Downtown SF 31 min BART ride to/from Oakland International Airport
    Enjoy privacy in your Master bedroom in our spacious, welcoming home. Located on a separate upper level, your space does not share walls with any other room in the house, making it very private yet centrally placed. Feel at home surrounded by modern and vintage décor. The high ceilings and large windows make for a spacious room; while the hardwood floors and ambient lamps keep things cozy. Get a good nights sleep on the soft but firm Queen size mattress. Dive into a book on the leather chair + ottoman, or work away on your own full size glass desk. The walls are thick, and the wifi signal is top-tier. Cuddle into bed and enjoy the house ROKU on the HDTV with our complimentary subscription of Amazon Prime and Netflix. We have security cameras in some of the shared common spaces (only) for extra safety.
    There are tons of shops, cafes, restaurants, public transportation, etc... within walking and short driving distance. 3-5 minutes walking distance: El Cerrito Del Norte BART station, Starbucks, Safeway Grocery Store, Walgreens Pharmacy, Supercuts, etc... Restaurants & Cafe's 5-7 minutes walking: Salva-Mex Taqueria (Mexican), Taste of Ethiopia, Tashi Delek (Nepalese), Strings Italian Café, Red Onion Burger Joint, Banana Leaf Thai Cuisine, Uncle Wong's Sichuan & Cantonese Café, Wienerschnitzel Hot Dogs, Frannie's Hawaiian BBQ, Trevino's Mexican-American Café, IHOP, Denny's (American), plus the mainstream fast food spots (Subway, Jack in the Box, McDonalds, pizza, fried chicken... too many to list). 5 minutes driving distance: There are WAY too many spots to list, so I will only name a few which I recommend: Diamo Chinese Restaurant. Because REAL Chinese cuisine is a lost art. El Mono Peruvian food Fat Apples Restaurant & Bakery (!!!) Catahoula Coffee house. Definitely worth the 5 minute drive. Resist the temptation of the 3 Starbucks you will pass along the way... Mayan Mocha. mmm
  • An excellent stay! Everything is as shown in the posting, and perfectly clean. Oscar was a really good host, that we could easily communicate with.

    Anouk2020-03-01T00:00:00Z

  • If you need a place to stay in this area this place is great. Home is located in a quiet and safe neighborhood. The home/room is very clean. Bathroom is right next to the room, and is spotless which is very convenient. Easy parking. Best of all very large TV mounted in the bedroom and the bed was super comfortable.

    Alpha2020-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • Oscar's place really can't be beat for location and convenience, as well as price. Less than three minutes from local public transit (train and buses), which is vitally important to me, but also only a few minutes from the freeway for those without that particular challenge, not to mention everything one would expect and/or ask for from an AirBNB experience - Full access to amenities within the house itself, high speed WiFi, and so on . . . Always a pleasure for me to stay there, which is of course why I keep coming back every chance I get.

    Quiet. Safe. In the hills w/ private entry. Comfortable bed. Equipped kitchenette. Wood floors. Shower bath with Aveda products. Recently remodeled. Fenced, private patio. Easy free parking. Access to washer/dryer. One block to restaurants and grocery. 3 miles to Downtown Berkeley, BART and UC. Right on the bus line. (If there is a third person, they will sleep in the living room on the sofa bed.)
    You may check-in from 3 pm until very late. I will send a code to the door keypad the week before your arrival. Your space includes a modest bedroom with comfortable queen bed, a shower bath, and a large living room with double doors to a patio. You'll have your own entrance and a kitchenette with pantry. A third person can be accommodated on the new sofa bed. There is an additional cost for a third person. The property has a view of the San Fransisco Bay and Golden Gate Bridge. I have lemons to share from my Meyer lemon tree.
    Kensington is a delightful hillside community adjacent to North Berkeley. I am located only two blocks from a grocery store, a wine store, two cafes, a hardware store and a specialty store serving hot drinks, cheeses, and sweets. It is a $6.50 Uber ride to the Berkeley campus and less than that to the El Cerrito BART station. There are interesting walking paths and the fabulous Tilden Regional Park with hiking trails, a botanic garden, and a swimming lake nearby.
  • Janet's place is in a great location and the cutest town of Kensington. We loved our short commute to Berkeley and the views. Thanks Janet for being such a great host.

    Shole2020-03-08T00:00:00Z

    Janet2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Ed and Janet have a gem in this sweet space. Location plus!! We came for a wedding at Tilden Park and accidentally found this space. Just cant say enough about the location.Tucked away in the hills yet close to everything Berkeley and only a short and easy drive into SF.We flew into Oakland and it only took 20 minutes to get there. So nice to be up and out of the hustle/bustle.They recommended The Inn just a block away for breakfast and it was amazing! And the trails of Tilden are a must if you love the outdoors. We hiked a beautiful trail around the lake and even discovered a waterfall. They respond very quickly to an question you may have and the check-in with a code was so easy. Janet has thought of all the little touches. I even found hairspray which I had forgot!! She even provides coffee and chocolate!! We are from southern California and 45 degrees was COLD for us so the heater, which warmed the entire space very quickly, was one of our favorite things :) We cant wait to go back and discover more!!

Great location, BART is right around the corner, with grocery stores just a few hundred yards away, it made not having a car easy to deal with.

    The slanted wood ceilings of your room in this 100+-year old home give the space a country-cottage feel, but with all of the amenities of a well-equipped modern home.

    Cute, very quiet, private studio in-law with separate bedroom space, kitchen and private bathroom with shower (no tub). 415 Sq Ft. There is one queen bed in the bedroom and a full size pull out bed in the sofa (perfect for small kids). Apartment also has private back yard area - great for those with small pets. Views of Golden Gate Bridge and much of the Bay Area visible from just outside your door. Tilden Park is just a few minutes drive from the property.
    In Law is equipped with new amenities including a toaster oven, coffee maker, stove/oven, refrigerator and all of the kitchen equipment (pots, pans, dishes, utensils and glasses) needed for a long term stay. There is no door to the bedroom, but it is separate from the kitchen area and bathroom. It's an open area that would be good for either a couple or a couple with small kids. We welcome small pets inside the apartment. There is a "private" yard area for small pets, but it's not overly secure so leashes should be used at all times unless you're with your pet in the back yard. We do live in an area with rather abundant wildlife including deer, raccoons, opossum and skunks for you to be aware. It's about about a 10 minute drive to UC Berkeley campus or BART from the house. There is public transportation nearby to San Francisco or other areas in East Bay, but we're on a very steep hill so those who rely on walking or biking should be aware that the walk to the bus stop is a challenge. For long term guest, we provide access to a laundry room that is shared as well.
    Nice neighborhood with fantastic views and very close to Blake garden and Tilden park.
  • Great location, very quiet and beautiful views ! This is a very special spot !

    Andre2019-11-15T00:00:00Z
  • This is a well thought out small 1 bedroom apt, with a full kitchen! It is spotlessly clean with many amenities - including coffee and tea! Hosts are great and allow their guests their privacy. Views are amazing and deer regularly cruise through the neighborhood. Large shopping area is close by. The place is located high on a hill, so be aware if hill driving is an issue. One minor complaint is that the bed is too soft, which made it uncomfortable for my husband and I -- but that is a matter of personal preference. We will definitely look into renting this again as we visit the East Bay often.

    Paula2019-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • Dylan’s place is the perfect spot for visiting the East Bay. There are incredible views of the Bay Bridge and Blake garden is just around the corner. There are great books, a stocked kitchen, elegant design touches and the apartment felt spacious despite’s the small size. Dylan was so kind that he even took my dog for a walk when I had a workshop in Marin County and was out for the day. Thanks again for a wonderful stay!

    Rhonda2019-09-10T00:00:00Z

Communication was quick, we had troubles checking in. Also, the stunning view of the bay from right outside our window was the cherry on top! Will stay here again the next time around!

    Erika2019-08-08T00:00:00Z

It is almost like a private place, so it outperformed my expectations :). You will find helpful things like water and coffee in the kitchen to get your day started and cooking is also accessible. If you come by car, Mayra always reserves one spot directly at the garage. Thank you. Overall I was very pleased with everything. Especially the kindness of the family, the cleanliness and the good rest I got at her place. I can fully recommend that place. With appreciation Martin

  • This is one of the most beautiful and cleanest studios in the Bay Area listed Airbnb with a perfect decoration. It’s a beautiful little space containing everything that we needed. My girlfriend and I have enjoyed every single days that we spent in phil's house and we will definitely come again. The area is very quiet and close to the El Cerrito Bart Station

    Gilbert2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Phillip’s place was just right for me. It was clean, had plenty of room, and a comfortable bed. There was a lot of information provided about how everything worked, from the shower to the heater to the WiFi. I appreciated that there was no guesswork. The WiFi was strong and reliable. Although it wasn’t a problem for me, some people may need to know that this studio has a lot of “step ups” and “step downs” to different levels. Those prone to falling may not want to choose this one. Also, there is no sink in the bathroom, so the kitchen sink is used for tooth-brushing, etc., and there is no mirror over the sink. There is a mirror in a dressing area that can be used for doing your hair, but shaving could be a bit of a challenge. (I did notice a small mirror hanging in the shower.) That said, the studio is in a quiet, safe location with easy access to freeways, and the host is great! And it truly was “sparkling clean.”

    Carolyn2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • From instructions on how to operate appliances, the towel heater, and the cautions regarding the inside steps - this place was infused with thoughtfulness! Although the driveway parking space was tight, I was very grateful to know there was a place to park everytime. The place itself was extremely clean and homey at the same time. Thanks for such a great stay!

    Taising2020-01-21T00:00:00Z

El Cerrito Del Norte BART station, Starbucks, Safeway Grocery Store, Walgreens Pharmacy, Supercuts, etc... Restaurants & Cafe's 5-7 minutes walking: Salva-Mex Taqueria (Mexican), Taste of Ethiopia, Tashi Delek (Nepalese), Strings Italian Café, Red Onion Burger Joint, Banana Leaf Thai Cuisine, Uncle Wong's Sichuan & Cantonese Café, Wienerschnitzel Hot Dogs, Frannie's Hawaiian BBQ, Trevino's Mexican-American Café, IHOP, Denny's (American), plus the mainstream fast food spots (Subway, Jack in the Box, McDonalds, pizza, fried chicken... too many to list). 5 minutes driving distance: There are WAY too many spots to list, so I will only name a few which I recommend: Diamo Chinese Restaurant. Because REAL Chinese cuisine is a lost art. El Mono Peruvian food Fat Apples Restaurant & Bakery (!!!) Catahoula Coffee house. Definitely worth the 5 minute drive. Resist the temptation of the 3 Starbucks you will pass along the way... Mayan Mocha. mmm.
  • Good location, friendly people. I love that he has opened his home to do many people and accommodates everyone.

  • A very clean place to stay, and very helpful hosts. A few Uber drivers were worried about the neighbourhood, saying it was not a safe part of town, but I never saw anything to prove that. Thank you to Gyandip and family for a very pleasant and easy stay!

    Matt2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Clean and affordable.

    Raymon2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Gyandip is the nicest air bnb host! He will literally call you his guest and treat you like one the entire time. Many times he would invite me to eat dinner with his family and offer anything he could to make my stay more enjoyable. I plan on staying at his place again in the future!

    Tim2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Gyandip’s house is clean and in a great location. Super close to the BART station. He was very respectful and helpful. I’d recommend anyone needing a place to stay when in the area.

    Hasler2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • My stay with Gyandip and his wife was superb. They are very warm and gracious. They showed me around to make sure I felt comfortable and even offered me some supper (unfortunately I had already eaten). Everything is super clean, and the house is very calming and peaceful. It is also conveniently located near Oakland. I will definitely stay here again when I am in the area!😀😀

  • Charles’s place was great: roomy, comfortable, and convenient as it was quite close to the BART station.

    David2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is cozy and comfortable with a nice garden in a quiet neighborhood. Yet there are stores and cafes close by. The kitchen is well stocked with all the appliances and utensils you need. There is a little trick you need to know to turn on the hot water in the shower, so be sure to ask Charles to show you how. Otherwise, I can’t think of anything to prevent you from having a pleasant stay.

    Mimi 2019-10-28T00:00:00Z

    Suburban escape with peace & nature, 100% private & secluded. One quick turn (literally) to freeway, shops & transit. What you get: the whole unit (with closet) & bathroom, sunny garden backyard & 2 levesl of redwood deck with a big patio sectional that are all exclusively fory our own use. Enjoy the company of birds & butterflies, the Golden Gate, Alcatraz & sunset views! Thoughtful touches abound: fresh, cold filtered water, USB (and power) outlets, strong wifi, one-time use ear plugs, & more.
    Your retreat has a private entry from the side of the house, well-lit at night in a very safe neighborhood with guaranteed parking right in front of house. The space is an in-law unit, full of stylish, thoughtful touches for both functionality and atmosphere. Bedside lamp provides lighting alternative to ceiling light. Essentials for grooming and looking sharp like dryers, iron/iron board, full-length mirror and amenity kits are always provided for your use. The main area has a memory-foam topped queen size bed (with always 100% cotton sheets & down duvet & pillows), and also a 2 person couch. The built-in desk can be folded down when not in use. The big window is south-facing, looking out to tall red woods beyond the backyard, and the stunning bay downhill. You share a wall with no one. The unit has no full kitchen, but as you see in photos, most basic eating/drinking (and take-out reheating) needs can be met with what I have provided in the room (even corkscrew, peeler). I provide 2 sets of a variety of dishware, and tons of utensils, cups, etc. as well as basic condiments and spices. Shower head is great, too, with really good water pressure. Guests can enjoy solo time or a little socializing. You can play music and have a good time as I can't hear a thing upstairs. It's compact but most everything you'd need to have a good time is there in a very friendly, courteous environment. The unit is business-ready. The closet is equipped even with picnic mat, flashlight, lint rollers, besides iron, ironing board, etc. and you can hang plenty of clothes. We allow smoking outdoors on the deck ONLY. (Ashtray is discretely placed by your entrance.) The unit is clean corner to corner, no dust balls under any and all furniture and in crevices!
    Super safe friendly respectful urban suburban neighborhood. I'd say most own their homes around here, are working professionals, fair amount of demographic and generational diversity. Lots of greens and flowers, deer, coyotes and turkey are often sighted (I've never heard of any one being attacked... in the 20+ years here). Our street is the artery up and down the hill, but is wide and has ample sidewalk space on both sides, many people walk here day and night. In fact virtually all streets in El Cerrito are paved fresh and have separate sidewalks. Nice hill trails 5 minutes uphill, or downhill. A local small grocery store is on our street, at bottom of the hill (5-6 min walk, 10 min back, as is uphill), with a mailbox there too. Tennis courts, baseball fields 3 min walk away at a nice park. Dog parks and kid parks abound nearby, too. A major street intersecting mine called San Pablo Avenue connects SF, Oakland,Berkeley to the south and Richmond (en route to Napa/Sonoma/Marin etc.) to the north (by bus, rapid lines too) and has tons of everything... huge top tier mall with Trader Joe's and CVS and Starbucks and restaurants, etc. and business services like dry cleaners, Kinkos, or USPS... all within 5 min drive. Mexican Beer garden on my street, right by the I-80 highway entrance/exit off my street... 2 min drive, tops! Not to mention tons of other restaurants and cafes and more right in that area. The nearest transit station from my house is a main regional hub so the long distances bus connectors, etc. all stop there.
  • Miho was an amazing host and the place was very nice. All the amenities were very convenient and the views from the backyard and outside were amazing!

    Austin2020-02-17T00:00:00Z

    Caitlin2020-02-08T00:00:00Z

    Carolyn2020-01-24T00:00:00Z

  • Quiet, quaint room on the bottom level of the house with a separate entrance. Plenty of parking on the street outside the house. Not far from BART if you need to move about the Bay Area without a car. Host had good communication and offered extra items such as a heater or thicker blanket since it was starting to get colder. The bed was very comfortable! Great place to spend the night

    Andrey2019-11-11T00:00:00Z

    San Pablo is 11 mins from Berkeley, 15 from downtown Oakland,and another 15 mins from the lovely San Francisco. My place is also close to Bart which is 5 mins away.Bart runs to all the towns i mention which makes trips hassle free The neighborhood is very quit and peaceful, if you need to run out there is the El Cerrito Plaza, has coffee shops, restaurants,Pubs, etc.
    Hi there, A little about your space ,very cozy comfortable room with a full size bed that is only suitable now for 1 person, you have the convenience of your own bathroom not shared, as seen in the picture a closest to hang your garments, wifi access. Also if you need to run have a beautiful trail in the back for a run ,pool to swim and a mini gym for a quick work out. If interested let me know ill open gym ,& pool for you. I would also like to add that my place is located on the top floor which carries 3 flights of steps , I am sorry to add I have no elevator access, just look at it as building the legs and calf , LOL I do promise your stay will be comfortable and peaceful. Thank you KEDESHA
  • The place is as described in the post, and feels very welcoming from the get go. About the unit: the room has a decent size, the bed is very comfortable, with a good sized closet. The private bathroom is big, pleasant and of course super clean. It's a great place to say when on 3 week work or vacation trip. The closest bart is El Cerrito del Norte, 10min away walking, 3 mins driving,. I left my car at the apartment location (easy parking), and would walk to the Bart station, which was easy and pleasant. Kedesha is extremely attentive and caring about your needs. She is a very nice person, works hard and wants to keep her place tidy, and it should be respected. But in addition to all that, it is very easy to become fond of Kedesha and her son. They are truly a nice pair, and you feel immediately welcome in their home. Enjoyed my stay very much. V.

    Anthony2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • Kadesha and her son are WARM, welcoming and super kind. Although the apartment is small, I was happy to have my own bathroom and the bed was comfortable with plenty of pillows, a closet and warm comforters. The entire apartment is immaculately clean and pristine. There is street parking, close to all major transportation and shopping, although you might want to bring your earplugs if you are noise sensitive, the bedroom is close to the street and you do get some street noise. It is a three floor walk up and Kadeisha was kind enough to help me carry my bag up the stairs. ❤️

    Pam Ellen2019-12-03T00:00:00Z
  • Only a 10 minute walk from El Cerrito del Norte bart station. Close proximity to San Francisco, Berkeley, and Oakland. The jacuzzi was very therapeutic, and the space is perfect for a short or long stay. I would definitely stay here again if in the area. Thank you!

    Kaili2019-11-21T00:00:00Z
  • I've had a great experience at Kedesha; she's surely a superhost but, as a person, she's also very caring, considerate, helpful, someone I can trust. Last but not least, she's got a cool sense of humor; I also had a great time there, which came in addition to the high standard of service. I'm very grateful for this outstanding stay. Thank you very much, Kedesha

    Hajnalka2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • Kadesha is a great host. Kadeshas home is clean, cosy and you will have a hair dryer and hot iron for your convenience. The pool area has also some tables and chairs to sit outside in the sun. Talking to Kadesha and her son was a pleasure. They are both nice persons who you will feel happy to meet.

    Lena2019-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • Kedesha is really the most kind and thoughtful host you can wish for. She will ensure you have a great time and even feel home. Nice clean room and a big bathroom for yourself with a bath tub. The apartment is in a safe area and around 10 mins. walking distance to the next Bart station. You can either go through a beautiful park or the main road. I stayed for more than three weeks and took the bart daily to Berkeley. SF is also easy accesible with the Bart. A big plus: Pool, jacuzzi, small gym with cardio machines and opportunity to wash and dry clothes. I can really recommend Kedeshas place and would come back.

    Nice easy access to freeways 80 and 580. Minutes from Oakland and SF. Walking distance to BART. Quiet serene neighborhood. Plenty of parking. Room comes with a Morgedahl memory foam mattress, mini-fridge and microwave.
    Nice sized room that has all the conveniences anyone travelling should require. Bright and airy.
    Quiet. Peaceful. Friendly and respectful neighbors. Access to a whole world of cuisines. Unofficially dubbed "Little Nepal". Does get a coastal breeze all the time.
  • The place was nice and clean. They provided an extra blanket and a space heater which was nice during the cold nights. The other occupants were a bit picky, but it's their living space ultimately so I understand.

    Spacious newly remodeled downstairs one bedroom studio. Furnished with a full kitchen, bathroom and a separate entrance to the outside. We are in a very quiet and safe neighborhood, walkable to local parks and other amenities. The BART Del Norte stop is a mile from our house, and the AC Transit Bus #7 that runs between BART and Downtown Berkeley is just a block away. We are a welcoming host family of three that live upstairs, plus a friendly dog. We have off street parking for one car.
    Entire home is solar powered, including a heat producing fireplace in the Airbnb living room. Own private entrance from exterior to the place, that is close to our driveway.
    It's a pleasant, friendly residential neighborhood with nearby walking/hiking options.
  • Everything about this place was perfect for my god son Foster child. We welcomed in early being the baby had gotten I'll on the plane ride. It was also very clean and it felt extremely safe. There was a playground two blocks away so my daughter was able to me there with my one year old granddaughter. I can't saw enough. I'd love to stat again if I am welcome. Thank you so much for a very beautiful and safe location. 🌹

    Carolyn2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • All of the travelers can expect a place to stay with plenty of necessities that they will need. Cookware, TV and fast Wifi. Dan has excellent communication and will accommodate his guests with everything they need. I had a very pleasant stay at his home.

    Fernando2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • This place is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! First, the sitting area/kitchen is QUITE large. I could have easily invited 4-5 friends over for a dinner and there would have been more than enough room for everyone! It's really a full sized one bedroom apartment with an office area, so plenty, plenty of room. Second, having an off street parking space was very sweet of them to set aside for me. Third, I completely enjoyed having an office area with a desk that I could sit and work at that didn't take up space either from the bed area or from the kitchen, dining room or sitting room area. And as someone who uses up a "wee bit" of space on the bathroom counters, I REALLY enjoyed having TONS of counter space in the bathroom area to set all my stuff down on! The place was quiet and the area was perfect; close to freeways, bus lines to SF, two mins from the BART station, and Target, restaurants, a grocery store and two gyms (Planet Fitness and 24 Hour Fitness) all within a 2-10 minute drive. The nicest part was when I walked in, they already had turned on the fireplace for me so it was nice and cozy in there upon arrival! I think the best thing I can say about this place is that I have already told my family they need to check to see if this place is available when they come into town!

    Shannon2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Nice neighborhood, spacious studio, and I wouldn’t mind staying there again!!!

    Waldemar2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • This is a really big 1 BR apartment I’ve ever seen, great staying with my family! I would say that can fit 5 guests or more easily. Pretty unique blueprint arrangement, ground floor level, heating is good enough to keep everyone warm. off-street parking that makes difference, its located on the hills side but not too far from market and access places...easy to find, great neighborhood.

  • Great stay! Room was quiet and comfortable, host was friendly and thoughtful, cats were adorable. It's close to both highway 80 and BART, and lots of stores close by.

  • Cute house in a quiet neighborhood. Self-check in and Molly left lights on in the bedroom and bathroom for me, which was a super thoughtful touch. I woke up to an essential oil diffuser running in the bathroom too. So nice! Overall a really great little spot. Thanks Molly! However for someone with cat allergies, this is probably not your place. The family has several cats (I met 4) that live in the house. The room itself seems to be closed from the cats, though.

  • Margaret is a wonderful host and the house is very charming. I would stay here again.

    Jason2019-12-11T00:00:00Z

    Enjoy your stay in a newly remodeled cozy guest house walking distance to BART. This place is ideal for professionals commuting to Oakland/San Francisco, students visiting UC Berkeley, or individuals visiting the Bay Area. Fully insulated and remodeled, complete with minifridge, microwave, closet storage, private entrance, and private bathroom. Walking distance to El Cerrito Del Norte BART (0.5 miles), Safeway, Home Depot, Walgreens, Subway, and fine dining restaurants. Extremely safe location.
    The room is quite compact and most suitable for one person. However, if you're on a budget, the twin day bed comes with a trundle with a second twin mattress. You'll have a private entrance and enter the property through the side gate of the main house.
    El Cerrito is a charming, safe, and quiet neighborhood, frequented by diverse set of individuals: young families, older couples, and young professionals all live in the area. BART is 0.5 miles away, which is super convenient for any and all commutes, and the freeway is a quick 3-minute drive away.
  • I’ve stayed at Jennifer’s place several times and will be staying there again. Her place is a charming little guesthouse that is located between the east bay and Marin. It’s always clean and easy to get in and out.

    Denis2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent spot in a tiny home.. perfect for a solo traveler on a short trip.

    Tim2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Would highly recommend this location nice and cute place.

    Adriana2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, easy check-in. Jennifer's place had everything I needed for a short stay. Street parking was very easy.

    Robert2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • I've stayed there before and (when available -- it's very highly subscribed, which is no mystery considering the value proposition) will stay there again. Great place for the solo traveler to use as a basic base of operations, or maybe a couple getting a feel for what the tiny house thing or #vanlife is about. It's a quiet place in a placid and safe-feeling neighborhood. It is small but has everything you need, nothing you don't. (The only notable exception: no coffeemaker. I brought a dripper and a couple of mugs, one as the source and one as the destination of water heated in the microwave.) There's a mini fridge as well. It's within walking distance (at least the amount of walking I *should* be doing every day) of the Del Norte station on BART, the area's public transit backbone. From there you can get to San Francisco, Berkeley, the airports SFO or OAK, etc. Street parking is plentiful if you have a rental car. No TV, but I had my laptop, and the WiFi provided is plenty for streaming. I brought headphones out of respect for the requested quiet hours. If that sounds as though it works for you (and really, if you're visiting the Bay Area and spending a ton of time in your room, you're doing it wrong!), give it a try. Chances are that, like me, you'll check its availability on future trips.

  • Jennifer’s place is perfect for me to go to the east bay and Marin with ease. It’s compact and cozy, well appointed and comfortable. I’ve stayed here before and will stay again. She’s a good attentive host as well.

    Quiet, private guest quarters (350 sq ft) in a large garden setting with 2 bedrooms and full bathroom. On site parking. No kitchen but a microwave, small fridge, Nespresso coffee maker and tea set up are provided. Downtown Berkeley is 3 miles away, SF by BART approx. 30 minutes via closest BART station and we're close to Tilden Park with many trails for hiking/biking, a little farm, steam trains and a swimming area at Lake Anza for the little ones. Can be rented separately or with main house.
    Our guesthouse is under one roof with a free-standing garage (don't worry, we do not use the garage part except to store a convertible), well away from the main house. The property is gated and has off-street parking. The private accommodation was originally remodeled to accommodate visiting family and friends. The space is architect designed and comfortable with windows, skylights, heating, full bathroom, and two bedrooms with a queen in the main bedroom and a single bed in the other. It can comfortably accommodate 1, 2 or 3 guests. The main bedroom has a dresser and coffee/tea set up. The second bedroom has a table, chairs, dresser with mirror, tv, microwave and mini fridge. We will sometimes rent out the main house as well so you may run into other guests on the property. Your guesthouse is entirely separate from the main house. Guesthouse maintenance and improvements: 6/18/15 New laminate floors. 5/5/17 New platform bed and new ComforPedic mattress (Beautyrest) - queen size in first bedroom. June 2019 - interior painting. July 2019 switched to Xfinity which includes Netflix. September 2019 replaced entire driveway. September 2019 exterior painting.
    Great views, lots of trees, quiet. A 20 minute downhill walk to BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) and 10 minutes uphill to the charming little town of Kensington. A 'walk around the block' is one of our favorite things to do.
  • We absolutely loved this place. Tasteful design, lovely amenities, and a beautiful natural setting.

    Mike2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely quiet private wooded spot. I wish I could have stayed a month.

    judy2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Such a wonderful place to stay with amazing hosts. Marie and Chris were overly kind and answered any questions quickly. The location is wonderful. Peaceful and quiet yet just a few minutes away from shopping and restaurants. I look forward to staying here in the future.

    Matthew2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Maria was an absolutely great host! The location was perfect. Amenities exceeded expectations. She was quick with communication and very friendly. I stayed here with some friends and we would definitely come back when back in the Bay Area.

    Emma2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Maria and Chris are great hosts. Very friendly and helpful to myself and my family. Place is very clean and nice on top of the hill in Kensington, overlooking SF City. Only 20 minutes to SF Bay Bridge. Close to shopping area too. I will definitely stay here again, whenever I am in town.

    Mariano2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Charming, clean and a perfect hostess!!

    Amy2020-01-04T00:00:00Z

    Susan2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • My mom and I booked Maria’s lovely cottage during a chilly, rainy weekend. It was perfectly cozy! The bed was superbly comfortable; the shower was lovely; and our hosts made sure to include nice little touches (like yogurts in the fridge for hungry travelers) that made us feel welcome. Maria was extremely quick to respond to any questions. We hope to stay again in the future!

    Rachel2019-12-11T00:00:00Z
  • I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the studio. Communication was excellent and self check in/out was easy. The bed was extremely comfortable and the location was quiet and convenient for the purposes of my four day trip. I especially enjoyed being able to walk to the nearby Natural Grocery for coffee and breakfast sandwiches. I would definitely stay here again while visiting my friends in the neighborhood!

    Darin2019-12-10T00:00:00Z
  • Maddie and Jake are excellent hosts: highly communicative, responsive to my questions, and overall nice people. Their experience as hosts shows in the small details. The place itself is perfect for one or two travelers. The mini-fridge and microwave are nice touches, and the bathroom is perfectly sized and situated. The bed had me melting into sleep in no time. Will definitely be back.

Short walk to shops, cafes & many public transportation options. 3 min to I-80 ramps 5 min walk to EC Del Norte BART Station 20 min drive to Downtown SF (traffic permitting) 27 min BART ride to Downtown SF 31 min BART ride to/from Oakland International Airport. Located on the lower level of our house, a kitchenette and bathroom are only steps from your room. Sleep on a soft but firm queen bed over hardwood floors, or work on your own desk.
    Enjoy privacy in your cozy bedroom in our spacious, welcoming home. Located on a separate lower level, your room does not share walls with other rooms in the house, making it your own private retreat. Feel right at home surrounded by modern décor. Wide windows on every wall, hardwood floors and a full closet mirror make your room feel spacious. Get a good nights sleep on a soft but firm Queen size mattress, or work away on your own glass desk. Although your room is in the far rear of our house, a WiFi extender provides solid internet.
    There are tons of shops, cafes, restaurants, public transportation, etc... within walking and short driving distance. 3-5 minutes walking distance: El Cerrito Del Norte BART station, Starbucks, Safeway Grocery Store, Walgreens Pharmacy, Supercuts, etc... Restaurants & Cafe's 5-7 minutes walking: Salva-Mex Taqueria (Mexican), Taste of Ethiopia, Tashi Delek (Nepalese), Strings Italian Café, Red Onion Burger Joint, Banana Leaf Thai Cuisine, Uncle Wong's Sichuan & Cantonese Café, Wienerschnitzel Hot Dogs, Frannie's Hawaiian BBQ, Trevino's Mexican-American Café, IHOP, Denny's (American), plus the mainstream fast food spots (Subway, Jack in the Box, McDonalds, pizza, fried chicken... too many to list). 5 minutes driving distance: There are WAY too many spots to list, so I will only name a few which I recommend: Diamo Chinese Restaurant. Because REAL Chinese cuisine is a lost art. El Mono Peruvian food Fat Apples Restaurant & Bakery (!!!) Catahoula Coffee house. Definitely worth the 5 minute drive. Resist the temptation of the 3 Starbucks you will pass along the way... Mayan Mocha. mmm.
  • A great place to stay. Oscar is very thoughtful and he is an amazing host. Super close to the BART and various shopping centers.

    Barbara2020-02-16T00:00:00Z

    Jason2018-07-04T00:00:00Z
  • All the rooms in this house are decorated to give you a feeling of home.. With all the rooms in the house being listed, the frequency of guests checking in/out seems to coordinate well with no conflicting schedules when it comes to use of living room, kitchen, or restrooms.. Well kept..

    Nuru2018-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • It was a great stay. Will definitely stay here whenever we come back :)

    Yasmi2018-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • What a great place! The interior design is sweet and Jason and Oscar have managed to think of all of the 'stuff 'that a traveler might need...I would definitely book there again and I'm planning on it and the next week. So convenient to the BART station; it's actually a two to three minute walk. And that way you don't need a Lyft or Uber and you can cut your costs there. They are very reasonably priced and suitable for singles couples or just people like me Airbnbing it until I find my own apartment as I move back to the SF Bay Area . I appreciate them and their graciousness and hospitality Style.

    Billi2018-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • Jason and Oscar are nothing short of wonderful accommodating hosts. If I could give 5+ stars, I would in a heart beat. This is my second time staying with them (my first was good as well) I booked last minute and they still welcomed me with a smile even tho it was late (11pm ish) They even offered me a discount because there was a small electrical problem with the outlets ( I wasn't in any desperate need for them, as I was able to charge my phone prior in my vehicle) but the issue was promptly tended to and fixed the very next day! If you are in this area staying with Oscar and Jason is a must!! Not just for the value but for the amazing hospitality and warm atmosphere they provide. Even tho there are other airbnb guests staying in other rooms at any given time. It never loses that home feeling. Thanks so much for everything guys! I'll be seeing you again soon! :)

    Private, 1 bedroom suite tucked away from the street. 9 min walk to El Cerrito Plaza Bart Station, (mins to Berkeley and SF). Abundant shopping and dinning options within walking distance. Brand new full sized mattress and Futon in the living room for extra guest. Ample space for any travelers. For all you music fans, this is the address where the band Metallica lived during the garage days.
  • This is the best bang for your buck in the area. We literally booked this place the night before heading out to the Bay (from OC) and the place was as straightforward as it gets. My only real complaint was the lack of the extra amenities (I'm just being picky really) like no sugar, (the one we found looked to be old) and no creamer for our morning coffee. But that's about it, everything else was good!

    Hector2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • The location is good and keep clean. If you can stay in the suburbs of San Francisco or Berkeley, I recommend this room.
