Kate's place was great! Very cute, good kitchen, great shower and yummy cafe around the street. Kate was very helpful and met us at check-in. I would stay again.

Kate's apartment is beautifully designed, quiet, and comfortable - we loved everything :) We had a wedding reception in Berkeley and Kate's place was the perfect place to prepare and stay. Would definitely return again!

Wow! This was a beautiful, comfortable home base from which to explore Berkeley. The apartment was clean, spacious, and way more stylish than expected. Sitting out on the patio in the late afternoon sun with a book was so relaxing. The location of the apartment was another bonus. It was a treat to be able to walk to a great grocery store, cafes, bakeries, restaurants, and watering holes. Street parking was easy to find right by the apartment. Kate was very pleasant and helpful to interact with. I would have loved to have had time to sit down with her for a nice chat over a glass of wine. I would definitely stay here again !

The apartment was just as described - clean, organized, spacious, filled with light, and very comfortable. I stayed here for about a month and it felt like home. I love the use of a duvet as that's what I'm used to at home and the kitchen and living room have great light in the afternoon. The windows are big and beautiful and the ceilings are high making it feel much bigger. The location was great, close to everything you'd need (grocery stores, Target, bakeries, etc). We had a great stay and would definitely stay again!

We just completed a 10 night stay and had a wonderful time! Everything was exactly as described and the apartment is very well-equipped. Kate was an excellent host - offering recommendations on where to eat nearby (we particularly liked the neighborhood map she created), but at the same time completely respecting our privacy. We honestly couldn't imagine a smoother, more pleasant stay and would easily rate it six stars if we could!

We really enjoyed our week-long stay in this urban apartment. It's located on the ground level with lots of windows, but with privacy too. The concrete flooring with area rugs was cool, and there were so many thoughtful design and furnishing touches throughout the space. One thing to be aware of: there's no TV. (This is properly listed in the amenities info, and for us it was perfectly OK.) The location was ideal for what we were there for, and it was fun to walk a few blocks to great and diverse eateries - the Thai street food place and LeMat, an Ethiopian restaurant, were excellent. The neighborhood is culturally diverse, and everyone we encountered on our walks was surprisingly friendly and helpful. Kate was always super responsive any time we needed anything. Meeting her lovely family just added to the warmth and welcoming feeling of our stay. We'd definitely stay here again!

We stayed at Kate's place for four nights and were blown away by the quality of the apartment. It's very private, beautifully designed, and has everything you could need (fully equipped kitchen, desk and table if you need to do some work, wardrobe to store clothes, washer/dryer in unit, shower supplies, etc). There's a lovely little yard, too. The bed is pretty comfy and temperature is fully controllable with the remote control operated gas stove. Highly recommend if you're staying a few days and want a place where you can truly relax and be comfortable. The walk to the BART was less than 10 minutes by cafes and restaurants, and gets you into downtown SF in 30-45 minutes. A great place, and Kate and Paul are wonderful hosts- immediate responses to questions, clear directions, and above-and-beyond helpful.

I am a textile designer, artist & published travel journal illustrator living in the Bay Area for the last 15 years. When my husband Paul & I are not chasing around our 4 year old, we love to take advantage of all our city has to offer. Biking, wandering, going to museums, searching for hidden gems & good food...we are never bored.

We are both avid travelers & in leiu of gifts, we take one international trip for our anniversary. Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Paris, Egypt, London, Ireland, Croatia, Montreal, Emirates, Japan, China, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Spain, Portugal, Mexico, New Zealand ... I'm sure I am forgetting a few. Our favorite part is getting to know locals in each place we go, and we hope that we can do the same for people staying with us.
