I can't say enough positive things about my stay at this lovey air b and b location. The host is a wonderful positive and accommodating person who did everything she could to make me feel welcme and relaxed in her home. You will be lucky to see the view from the back garden if you choose to stay at this accommodation. Would definitely go back there again.

Vicki is a great host, with an amazing personality, cheerful at all times, generous, and hospitable. Max (the dog) is adorable and I so enjoyed having him around. I stayed for 2 weeks and felt very much at home from day 1. I had access to all the amenities, including the outdoor hot tub. The backyard has a beautiful view and close to tennis courts, parks, coffee houses, grocery stores and very conveniently located. Thank you Vicki, max, and max2 for making my stay so pleasant.

I am a Chinese college student who studied in UC Berkeley for a month in summer. In my opinion, Vicki is an elegance and independent American woman who understands China. She has ever traveled China and had 4 Chinese high students lived in her house before. For the last one month she gave me countless supports in my life living in American. On the first day, she enthusiastically led me visiting the house while introducing every detail of the house including old photos, baldachine, and piano and so on. Patiently and effectively, she taught me how to use the oven, how to use the washing machine and dryers, how to use a stove. Whenever I had questions and whichever the questions were, Vicki was willing to answer me. You may always hear her typically FYI adding her reply and you may also always see smile on her face when she leave home for a while and ask you whether leave the TV on for you. What a thoughtful lady she is! I can never forget the lovely time when she invited me to see a family move about a dog in the house, the time when she invited me to enjoy the hot tub in the back yard, the time she drove me to shopping, and the time she helped me to fix her bike and lent it to me to ride to the bus station. What’s more? The time accompanying me chatting, answering my problems in school life and teaching me how to speak English properly, to use “I understand” to replace “I know”, was really impressive. Thank you Vicki! Thank you for your kindness! Besides Vicki, I have to introduce another family member Max, who is an adorable Lab with whole body clean golden short fur which is comfortable to touch. Although he is a big dog, he is really gentle and smart. Never ferocious never engorge, sometimes he would beg you when you eating but he would not eat without Vicki’s permission. He extremely loves to play with you. For example, if you touch him and make him happy, he would fetch his rope toy and put it in front of you, and then there is a push-and-pull game! If he was bored, he would crouch near your feet staring at you with big blue and pine eyes so that you can’t help comforting him. When I was studying at night, he would run to lay to rest beside me resting. What impressed me most is that he is very loyal, when Vicki went out, he would prone on the window quietly staring at the distance, when Vicki came back, he was shaking his tail excitedly, going up to meet, particularly cute. Max is a family member, so we should respect him as the same respect as we treat Vicki. Finally, the neighborhood is clean, quiet, safe and beautiful. I have walked to home at 9pm. At the backyard of the homes I enjoyed the splendid view.
