About this listing
Centrally located (7 min. to downtown on BART/25 min. to SF), but quiet, peaceful home, can sleep 7+ (3 BR/1BA) with Hot Tub/Trampoline/BBQ, high walking score
We have an adorable home in the Richmond Annex, which borders on the City of Albany and El Cerrito, 5 minutes from Berkeley, 20 minutes from SF. There are 3 bedrooms: The Master bedroom has a California king bed, the second bedroom has a full size bed (Also another full size mattress) and the Third bedroom has a twin (3 fold out twin futons are also available). We also have a comfortable sectional in the Living room that creates a full size bed. We do have two 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, etc, that one would need to cook a feast. We love our sweet garden and so do the hummingbirds. You may use the gas BBQ, Trampoline, etc. We are within walking distance to a slew of restaurants, movie theater, cafes, library, shopping, a farmer's market and a biking trail. Our neighborhood is a quiet, residential gem with ample 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 cats, who would love to hang out with you and play. They do need to be given water daily, if you choose to stay here, please.
We look forward to hosting you and sharing info on local favorite spots.

Interaction with Guests
We are the folks from Book A Nook, a relational property management outfit. We love to meet and nurture our guests and provide a stellar experience, which is why so many of our guests return!
We love that our neighborhood is a secret, quiet gem in the middle of a bustling metropolis. We can hear and see the birds and the stars, interact with our super-friendly, community oriented neighbors and have access to diverse cuisines, cultures, architecture, geography, natural habitats and entertainment that surrounds us.
BART, our subway, is a ten minute walk from our place. There are several bus lines. We are at the intersection of hwy 80 and 580. If you feel like taking a ferry to SF, you can do so from Larkspur or Oakland and we are very close to the train station as well.

What a safe and tight knit neighborhood. Limor and her team were very responsive and helpful when I had a parking issue with my trailer.
Loved the kitties and snacks.
Definitely made us feel welcome and the neighborhood was nice and peaceful not a bad neighborhood at all. We even walked to the Lucky and shopping center down the street in the afternoon/evening. The kids had a few video game systems with a nice TV and stereo system to keep them entertained which was also great for movies for the family. I personally enjoyed a nice nap on the hammock in the back yard while the kids enjoyed the trampoline which was great. Although the cats were mentioned I must say It was uncomfortable laying on the beds and pillows full of cat hair. I recommend you take your own sheets.
All communication as well as arrangement for check in was excellent, prompt and clear.
Yikes! Usually our cleaners are stellar! I apologize for this rare experience. WE will definitely see that this does not happen again. We pride ourselves on spotless accommodations, so we'll get on this! Please come back and visit and we are glad you enjoyed the rest of the amenities!
Limor's house was beautiful and warm. It made us feel like home at Berkeley!
They were available at all times to answer my queries about stay.
We had a wonderful time staying at Limor's Holiday Retreat. The location is incredibly convenient to access BART, and the freeway. There is a beautiful view of the SF bay & the Golden Gate, just over the hill on the next street over. The house was warm and inviting, we felt right at home. The kids really enjoyed the trampoline in the back yard, and really did not want to leave. Probably one of our favorite things was the loving big orange cat that greeted us on arrival, and enjoyed our company our entire stay. He even walked us out to the car when we left. Would definitely stay here again!
A very positive, helpful host. We came to town a bit late, and the host was very helpful, even at the late hour. Comfortable, cozy home, in a quiet neighborhood with easy access to the highway. The house had everything we needed, and lots more. The only thing was that the backyard was overgrown and in bad shape, but that did not affect our stay as it was too cold during our stay to sit outside anyway.
Everything was fantastic! The host was incredible! The house was in a very good location and met our needs for our large family. I would definitely stay again!!!
