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!

Paul's home in Rockridge was an inviting and comfortable, and a home-away-from-home. Two colleagues and I really enjoyed our stay in late February for 3 nights. We came into town for a work retreat and couldn't find accommodations in Oakland -- the Rockridge BART station is just a couple blocks away and short ride to our destination. The house is on a great street and very close to restaurants and shops, some of which we had a chance to enjoy. We will definitely be looking to book again with Paul the next time we come back to the area.
