Perfect for our family of two grandparents, two parents and two kids age three and four. I commuted to San Francisco for work for some of the time which was an easy 35 mins with the BART so close. We decided not to rent a car which limited our exploration radius. That said, Rockridge (strollerville) and Temescal (hipsterville) are super cute neighborhoods - we tried out almost a different restaurant and cuisine everyday, enjoyed browsing in the boutiques and bookstores. Highwire is one of the best coffee places I've been to - looked forward to it every morning. Kids LOVED the toys and books in the house. And many an afternoon spent playing and drawing chalk in the backyard while grown ups hung out with drink in hand! Thanks to Paul and Hilary for sharing a little slice of their life with us!

We stayed here while visiting Berkeley for my daughter's graduation. The location was perfect, a couple miles from campus but within walking distance to restaurants, bars and shops on College Ave. The home is clean and beautiful. Only one full bath and the bunk beds are small but we made it work even with 5 adults. Paul was quick to respond to my inquiries and easy to work with. Will definitely stay there again if in the area!

We had a great experience. The house was beautiful, clean and in a fabulous location. It was perfect for our family as we celebrated our daughter's graduation from UC Berkeley. We were able to walk to great restaurants, shops and the BART. Paul left detailed directions about the house, appliances, local restaurants etc. He was easy to communicate with and responded quickly. We would definitely recommend this house.

Really great house and fantastic location just a block from Rockridge restaurants and BART. We never actually met Paul but the key was right where he said it would be and the house was ready for my family of four. There were even some Trader Joe peanut butter cups waiting for us (and yes, there's a Trader Joe's in the neighborhood). Particularly for a family with young kids (there's a cute bunk bed in addition to a comfortable bed in the master and a pullout coach in the den) this is a real gem.

We had a great stay here. The hosts were extremely accommodating, the house was very spacious, and the location near the BART, cafes and restaurants in short walking distance was excellent. We'd very happily stay here again. Its a great place to stay.

Great location - restaurants, shopping, BART...all within walking distance. The house was even better than the pictures. Nice kitchen with everything you need & having a backyard was a plus. Paul was we easy to contact and responded quickly & provided helpful info on local restaurants, bars, etc. A perfect homebase for our daughter's Berkeley graduation weekend!
