I had a great time in El Cerrito! I did not get to meet Kay but she gave me really good directions and guides in how to get to her house as well as how to make myself at home! Kay's house is beautiful and the room I stayed at was very comfortable and clean! I will probably be travelling back to El Cerrito and would love to stay at Kay's again!
A beautiful and peaceful house with a stunning panoramic view. The bedroom was large and comfortable. Kay was out of town, but did everything she could to make the visit go smoothly on very short notice. She also provided welcome advice about dining in the area. Cell service is sporadic, but Kay offers use of the house phone for domestic calls.
Kay was very thoughtful and thorough in leaving instructions about her place - which was quiet, serene and cozy. The home, neighborhood and view of the natural reserve were lovely - I wish I had time to take a hike and Kay left hiking maps just in case. I would recommend Kay's place for those seeking a quiet get away while visiting the area.
Kay's home is grand and impressively located on a grander hill with unobstructed views of the canyon, as described. She sent us detailed instructions prior to our arrival and it was straightforward to find all that we needed. Be prepared to go back in time as there are areas filled with souvenirs, old toys and furniture.
Kay was able to accommodate my partner and I over the Thanksgiving holiday. We live in the area and this worked out perfectly , a short distance and a comfortable bed to collapse into after a day of family and grandchildren. Since we were in late and out early I can tell you the room is lovely, the bed is comfortable and the view of the hills are peaceful. Yes Kay, I would love to meet for coffee!
Kay's is a grand house overlooking the quintessential California landscape - rolling golden hills - with a large terrace all around the bedroom to watch its changing moods and colors in the constant play of sun and mist that is the bay area. The bed room is large and well-furnished, and the ensuite bathroom, luxurious. In Kay's absence one of the housemates was very helpful in showing me around the house, answering questions and just having an occasional nice chat. Cell phone reception is rather weak and the internet intermittent - for a perfect holiday from the distractions of modern life! All in all a pleasant experience. Thanks, Kay and Keith!

About the Host, Kay
Hi! I am fortunate to live in the beautiful SF Bay Area with a lovely view of hills, trees, canyon and Bay, and enjoy all the richness of this area on a daily basis. Since childhood our family vacationed at South Lake Tahoe, and a few years back I had an opportunity to build my dream cabin in a lovely wooded environmentally-controlled site along the shores of Lake Tahoe. I am so happy to share these beautiful properties with the wonderful responsible guests referred by Airbnb. I am a fan!
I also love to travel and so far count Europe, China, Cuba, Hawaii, Mexico, and most of Central America as places I have been fortunate enough to visit--some many times over. My parents are foreign born so I truly enjoy folks from other countries and cultures. I work hard, play hard, and enjoy exercise, great food and great art, and the endless beauty of nature.
