About this listing

Centrally located (7 min. to downtown on BART/25 min. to SF), but quiet, peaceful home, can sleep 9- (3 BR/1BA) with Trampoline/BBQ, high walking score, ample, free parking, very family friendly.

May also be rented with adjacent studio apartment for 2more guests and another bath.

The space

We have an adorable, well-equipped, comfortable home in the Richmond Annex, which borders on the City of Albany and El Cerrito, 7 minutes from Berkeley, 25 minutes from SF. BART is only a 10- 15 minute walk.
There are 3 bedrooms with the following beds in each:
The Master bedroom - California king
Bedroom #2 - full size bed, plus 1 twin size mattress (not air mattress)
bedroom #3 - twin, plus a fold out twin futon
Family Room - Sectional converts into a full size bed
L/R - Sectional converts into a full size bed
2 additional twin-sized folding futons

Our bathroom has a full tub with dual shower heads. The kitchen has a gas stove, fridge, dishwasher, microwave, electric kettle, toaster and all the pots, pans, dishes and anything else that one would need to cook a feast.

Our Living room is perfect for a gathering of friends, has a fireplace, a huge TV with surround sounds and overlooks our front garden.

The beds in all bedrooms are comfy since we live here much of the time, though we do get to travel often. Essentially, you will feel like you are visiting a very clean friend, who isn't home...

The family room has a gigantic TV with gaming options, awesome sound and is adjacent to the kitchen. It also has a sectional that converts into a full size bed. This room is not private since it opens into the kitchen, but it does have a darkening shade, so you can sleep in there comfortably.

We love our sweet backyard and so do the Hummingbirds, Finches and Blue Jays. You may use the gas BBQ, Trampoline, etc. We enjoy having breakfast on the patio, building a fire on the pit or reading in the hammock.

We are within walking distance to a slew of restaurants, a movie theater, cafes, library, shopping, a farmer's market and a biking trail. Our neighborhood is a quiet, residential gem with ample, free unrestricted parking and friendly neighbors. BART, the subway servicing the Bay area is a 10 minute walk. We are close to the Redwoods, the bay, Tilden park, Sausalito and Marin.

We also have two sweet, indoor-outdoor cats, who would love to hang out with you and play. They needs to be given water daily, if you choose to stay here, please. Sometimes we take one with us. My assistant may need to come in and give a pill to one of them daily, unless we have taken him with us.

We look forward to hosting you and sharing info on local favorite spots.

A sanctuary away from the craziness of the city! This was our first Air BNB experience and based on this, I will do it again. The house was divine and the outdoor patio and fire pit extended our living area and enjoyment. The home was clean, the kitchen was fully equipped and our host left us a detailed Guest Guide to help us with what we needed to know about the home and the area. I highly recommend Limor's place. She left everything we needed to have a relaxing and welcoming visit.

All seven of us felt right at home in Limor's place. The house was easy to find and get in to, and Limor texted right back when we had a question. The house was cozy, generously appointed, felt like a real home and was easy to cook and eat in. We all really enjoyed the generous gift basket. On-street parking was always available in front of or steps from the front door.

My family and I had a great time at Limor's place! The house was as described but the yard was better. The kids had a great time on the trampoline e and I enjoyed naps in the hammock. The kitchen and board games really helped my family feel at home. Finally the cats were ever so polite and Gingin was great with the kids. We will definitely consider this house next time we are visiting the bay area.

On the positive side, the house was very clean, tidy, comfortable and cozy, with lots of inviting gathering spaces. There were lots of things to do, such as video games, movies, books, and board games. We were welcomed with a nice note and a basket full of goodies which we took full advantage of. Even the cats were fun. They were very friendly and made the experience even better. It has a large, well-equipped, comfortable kitchen with everything you need. Brittany, the manager, was very friendly and helpful, answered all our questions, and made us feel welcome. There were just a couple of areas for improvement. The backyard was disappointing. One reason I chose this house was for the backyard. The pictures online made it look large, open, well-groomed, and inviting, with fun activities for teens, like the trampoline, hammock, and firepit. However, when we got there it did not live up to our expectations. I never went back there and the kids only went once. Also, in the description it says the house can sleep 9. Technically, this is true, but if you have 9 not everyone will have a bed. Some people will be on mattresses on the floor and some on the couch. We had 6 and the house was full, especially with just one bathroom. Overall, still a great experience. We really felt at home during our stay.
