Very nice home but lack of owner response
We found the home spotlessly clean, the beds and furnishings all very comfortable, and it is located in a wonderful Berkeley neighborhood. We would have given 5 stars, but had a very concerning experience with the owner, hence a lower rating. On the third evening of our stay we came back to the house and could not get connected to the Internet. We tried calling the owner at both phone numbers he provided in written information to us, found the mailbox full for one number, but left a message at the other number. After about an hour with no response, and hearing a TV in the owner's apartment behind the house, we knocked on the door, but got no response. We also sent an email to him through the VRBO site, but did not hear back from him. The Internet began working again the next morning. The lack of Internet use was annoying, particularly since a prior review stated it was problematic and, when we questioned this before we made our reservation, the owner stated it was working well. However, most disconcerting was not getting any response from the owner by phone, nor by personal contact at the house or through email. Even if he resolved the issue, we would have expected contact from him to see if we were satisfied. We were grateful that we did not have a more serious issue to resolve during our stay.
Nice house in a great location.
We were in town for a wedding and mainly needed somewhere to sleep and shower. The beds were comfortable and the water was hot. The location was great for us as we had other family staying near by.
Very well kept and clean. It had its own unique charm that was quite welcoming.
We enjoyed our stay and found the location very convenient to my son at Berkeley. It wasn't walking distance to campus, but a quick drive. Walking distance to local supermarkets, stores and bagel shop that we took advantage of several times. Charming neighborhood and easy parking on the street. We hope to visit again!

Great location for commencement visit!
We stayed here to attend our son's commencement. The home was very clean and nicely decorated with a vintage feel. Thanks for a lovely stay!
Charming, comfy, well equipped house, a walk from Solano Ave
We loved our 4 day stay in this lovely house, filled with family touches. Great kitchen, wonderful dining room, and on a quiet tree lined street. We walked to Solano for breakfast and bagels, and to look at shops. Here for our daughter's graduation from UC Berkeley Grad school. It was perfect for the four of us in every way. The owner Robert was great and we would stay there again.
Located one block from Solano Ave. with easy walk to superb restaurants, pubs, grocery store and boutique shopping. UC Berkeley is very close (1/4 mile) as is the freeway.The house is on a corner lot in a very quiet neighborhood.
