The space

The loft is the lower level of a 110 year old Victorian building. Originally a convenience store turned into an art studio in its past, is now a fully remodeled live-work space with 12 foot ceilings, stained concrete floors and partitions that separate the living and kitchen/dining area. A second queen size bed serves as a day bed located in a nook which can be closed off by curtains if used as second bed.

My adult son and I arrived in the middle of a heatwave, and the coolness of the apartment was something that we continued to appreciate deeply during our stay - we didn't even have to use the fan! The design and layout of the apartment is great, allowing both of us some privacy and protecting my son (to some degree!) from my snoring.... Getting about was very easy with the BART close by and the Berkeley Bowl within walking distance for groceries. It's a lovely place to stay and I was delighted to find it was on the ground floor, so no staircase to carry my luggage up and down. The courtyard is a delight, as is Loddi - and I'm not particularly a dog person. Kirsten and Chris are great hosts - warm, welcoming, good communicators and very helpful when asked about anything. They were also kind enough to include me in their uber ride one evening when we all went to the Greek Theatre to see Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers! My 32 year old son appreciated the loft as much as I did, and also the general location, going off for walks around the area with his camera. A great stay all round!

This is a wonderful place to stay. We had a great time and Kirsten was a great host, she was very helpful. We would love to stay here again as the BART (public transport) is really near and UC-Berkeley is 20 min walk... ideal. Thanks for everything

Kirsten was an amazing and professional host. She was very accommodating to our requests. This was our first Airbnb experience and she made the processes of checking in and out very easy and seamless. The area was safe and PARKING was easy! Parking was nice because there are no parking spaces in Berkeley. We would definitely stay here again in the future. Thank you, Kirsten!

Kirsten was great at communicating when there was a slight issue with the power due to the crazy bay area storms. My boss was the person who stayed there and he and I both recvd updates regularly. The space was very open and clean. Will def book again!

Very nice large loft. Clean with a fully stocked kitchen with everything you could want. Comfortable bed. The tv is the size of a laptop so I was glad I could watch the US Open elsewhere. Safe neighborhood and near several grocery stores and a small restaurant within walking distance. One complaint. I was having my son and daughter in law visiting and the mattress on the second bed was removed. Joanne

Born and raised in Germany, my husband and I immigrated to the Bay Area in 1995. We have lived in San Francisco, New Orleans and Chicago before "settling down" in Berkeley. We are both professionals with busy work schedules and I travel a lot for work. We like the outdoors and try to take advantage of the beautiful Bay Area, we call home. We love to meet people from all walks of life and are looking forward to being able to travel more extensively ourselves in the future.
