Beyond our expectations
"How often can you say something exceeds your expectations? That's just how we felt about our stay at Laurie's condo in Emeryville. The location was incredible, but we knew that ahead of time. What we didn't know was how beautiful the condo was going to be. From the Ralph Lauren silverware to the grand piano in the living room, it was one of the most elegantly comfortable places we've stayed in a long time. We were met at two in the morning by our incredibly caring host, Laurie, who welcomed us warmly. The kitchen was perfectly appointed and we never looked for anything we couldn't find -- from sugar and salt to ziplock and garbage bags to spices and condiments. Thank you Laurie for the care you most obviously put into making this a welcoming experience. We will definitely be back."

"We really enjoyed our time there, especially that deck was an amazing place to spend the mornings for breakfast and evenings for a cold drink after a day of sightseeing. We had a lot of different accommodations on our trip (L.A., Williams, Vegas, Yosemite and Santa Barbara), from simple motels to 5 star luxury hotels, and that apartment was the cleanest and best maintained from all of them.Thanks again from the whole group, I'm a hundred percent sure that anyone of us will remember these days forever."

"Stunning views, lovely home. We vacation with another couple and this was perfect for us all. As our "base of operation" it was central to most things we were doing. The house is beautiful. I enjoyed each morning sitting on the porch, watching the city wake up. If we are ever in the area again we would definitely stay here again!! Gillian is so sweet and she even gave us some great ideas for things to do. Thank you Gillian for a great stay!!"

"We found this a great place to stay. It is at the back of a large house on a quiet street, less than two blocks from the restaurants, food stores and shops of College St and a few more walkable blocks to the BART station. We had a car, but on street parking was plentiful and the owner provided us a zone parking placard. It is secure, with a lockable gate from the street. The place is light-filled and everything in it is new, modern and luxurious. It is fully stocked with equipment and there is plentiful closet and drawer space.The outside deck with a table and chairs overlooking the quiet garden was a welcome place to sit and watch the Monarch butterflies and even entertain friends. We were there as part of a two week trip and really appreciated the washer and dryer! Murray was out of town while we were there, but Martha was a perfect host! The one suggestion we would make concerns the wi-fi service. It was occasionally hard to stay on and needs to be strengthened to better cover both rooms of the cottage. However, this was the nicest of several small places we have booked in the greater SF area and we recommend it enthusiastically!"
