We had an excellent stay at Michael's lovely place in Albany. It is a spacious, comfortable family home. It suited us perfectly travelling with 3 kids and the grandparents. The children's rooms were ideal and my 4 year old absolutely loved the platform bed. For grown-ups, the master bedroom and adjacent bathroom with its enormous shower and bath were great. We had everything we needed for cooking meals in the well-equipped kitchen. Michael was a helpful and attentive host and incredibly understanding when a small item was accidentally broken. We appreciated that friendly co-host Max dropped by to bring supplies and check on the cats. For all its comforts, what we appreciated most about the house was its location. The house is on a quiet, residential street but still very close to supermarkets, shops and restaurants like the local favourite, Little Star Pizza. There is a nice park and playground just around the corner. UC Berkeley, BART to San Francisco and Oakland Airport are all easy to get to. We found this an ideal base to visit friends in the East Bay and for day trips into the City.

Great place, great host

Michael's home was lovely - clean, comfortable, contemporary and centrally located. We enjoyed the connected living areas and kitchen, as well as having multiple bedrooms/ beds at our family's disposal. The street parking was easy and convenient. Michael was a gracious host, making us feel welcome before we even arrived, then checking on us via text. Everything we needed was available in the house, and we felt right at home. We would love to visit again!

This was our first AirBnB experience and we had an absolutely wonderful stay. The home was recently remodeled, in an excellent location (very quiet and family friendly), and extremely gorgeous and roomy. In particular the kitchen and master bedroom were very modern and up to date. There were also fresh flowers and a newspaper waiting for us upon arrival which was a lovely touch. Michael made sure to communicate with us before and during the stay and was very easy to reach by phone. We stayed here for a Berkeley graduation and was a close 15 minute from the campus. At night we made a trip to Solano Avenue (a 5 minute walk) and enjoyed food from one of the many quaint restaurants there. Trader Joe's and CVS were also a close walking distance from us -- perfect for any last minute purchases. Our party included two couples, an adult, and a 5 year old and we had ample space to sleep. Would DEFINITELY stay at Michael's home again. Highly recommended!

We really love the location. Restaraunts were close walking distance. Food choices were excellent. BART transportation close. We did not use it. We were at the San Pablo Resevoir all weekend easy access to freeway and close distance. House a cute 2 bedroom bungalow with extra free standing cottage. If you count the couch can sleep 6. House is going to be revonated but we were forewarned and we were comfortable with it. Has a queen bed and bunk bed comfortable sofa .The extra cottage space does not have a heat but foes have a space heater and has a fold out couch but we did not use it. We stayed just the weekend and it really worked well for our 4 woman crew team. Has driveway spot for 1 vehicle and plenty of street parking. Able to cook a nice dinner Saturday nite plenty of pots pans dishes perfect. Great place. Would request again next year if available.

I am Michael and report to my two direct supervisors: Dylan, age 7, and Juliette, age 6. I run an environmental non-profit, and my wife Melanie works at UC-Berkeley.

We are very clean and responsible, and if you are renting to us, we will treat your home like it is our own. We will leave it cleaner than when we arrived. If you are renting from us, we are easy-going and love to share our home.

The home that is listed is our only home: we live here. So it only gets rented when we travel, and since we have kids in elementary school, that is not as often as we would like. I met Melanie, my wife, when she rented my San Francisco apartment (before AirBNB existed).
