  • This space was spotless and elegantly appointed in a quiet residential neighborhood. Street parking was abundant but walking to public transportation was easy. Everything was virtually new and worked perfectly including the kitchen appliances, wi-fi, and cable TV. The bathroom was wonderful. There was abundant storage, a convenient work area, and plenty of room.
    Albena was there to greet me and show me around. I had a few questions (by email) and she responded quickly.
    I get to Emeryville frequently and would feel privileged to be able to stay here again.

  • Lovely, immaculate apartment, with everything my husband and I needed to enjoy our stay in the Bay area. The hosts were very accommodating and accessible as well. Would highly recommend.

    January 2014
  • We recently relocated to the Bay Area, and the two month stay at Albena's eased the process immeasurably. The apartment was set up for comfortable living -- kitchen, television, desk, quality bathroom, ample storage -- from the moment we arrived. We simply unpacked our bags and settled in, with plenty of time to learn the various East Bay neighborhoods and find a longer term rental. The apartment is tastefully furnished with a modern, Ikea style, and highly functional. We especially enjoyed the heated, concrete floors. Albena and Nikolay themselves were wonderful hosts, more than happy to help out, provide recommendations, accommodate our busy relocation schedule, etc. I've spread the word to anyone who will listen -- Airbnb is the only way to relocate across the country, and Albena and Nikolay made the process as painless as possible.

  • This was a lovely, immaculately clean apartment. Perfect for one person, good for two. Parking is a breeze which can be challenging (for different reasons) throughout the bay area. This is situated on the street level portion of a house with other living quarters above. There was no problem with noise. There is a kitchen window over the sink which looks out onto some bushes and plants (you are eye level with the bottom of them.) Lots of hummingbirds congregate there - a real treat.

    October 2013
  • We had a lovely stay at Albena's guest apartment, cozy and comfortable and easy to get around in and prepare meals. The bed was exquisite, the shower magnificent and how nice it was to breakfast outdoors on the in the privacy of flowers and greenery. We have family in Emeryville and will definitely come back to stay again.
    Even though Albena was on holiday, we kept in touch and felt welcomed and at home by our shared correspondence. By the way, the neighborhood is quiet and safe and within walking distance of shops and important for us, our son and his wife.
    Also there was a list of so many things to do (was it a 100?) and we did a few of them with our 2 year old grandson, his mother and father.

    October 2013
  • We had a great time staying at Albena's apartment. Very clean, uncluttered and comfortable. Favorite part was having an apple TV which made it truly feel like home.

    October 2013
  • The apartment was lovely! Brand new, with so many well thought out details. Wine on arrival, teas and snacks, a cute little patio area, candles, books, full entertainment system. Everything you could want, and more. Also private, which we appreciated. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

    October 2013
  • We loved the newly finished apartment - an amazing and effiicient use of space and hi-tech. It was spotlessly clean and conveniently located for the other side of the Bay. Free, unlimited parking was also a plus. Our schedule changed, and Albena was very accommodating and responsive. Would highly recommend this host.

    October 2013
  • The appartment was perfect and beautiful!

    October 2013
  • It is a lovely place like in the pictures and Albena was a great host. She was discreet but still there if we need her.
    The street is quiet. There is a free shuttle at the end of the street which is convenient to go to the metro station and reach SF.
    We really appreciated the friendly welcome with a wine bottle and some beverages in the fridge.
    We strongly recommend this place.
    Thank you
    Stephanie
