  • We stayed at Susan's house in North Berkeley for 2 months while we were studying english in a school for international students. It was perfect, the house was very clean and organized. The house's pictures looked exactly like we found the house, everything was there! Even though Susan wasn't in town her instructions were very easy to follow and we could communicate anytime. The house was 10 minutes walking from the BART station and we could also catch the bus almost in front of the house. We enjoyed a lot the past two months and we would love to live in Berkeley again! Thanks Susan and Airbnb!!

  • We stayed Susan's for almost two months while we were selling our home and buying a new one. It was cute and comfortable and we really enjoyed our stay.

  • A really nice apartment! Clean and everything we needed. We enjoyed having breakfast in the sun room!

  • Everything smooth and easy in contact with the host.
    A lovely little house on a quiet street. Close to the venue we walked to every day.
    Stylish comfy home, modern and harmonious interior, (not a ugly mix of worn out old things that one can find in some rental places.) Modern equipment, clean and everything you need in a household. We especially liked the "organic preferences" in the house and that we could see a caring for the guest in the small details everywhere.
    We did really appreciate the heating system also during this cold spring week.
    We could both rest here, and enjoy the sunny backyard some days.

    We would both love to stay here again!
    /Big thanks from Kristina and Ginny :D

  • Staying at Susan's house really made our visit to the Bay Area with our two kids much easier than it might otherwise have been. The house was very thoughtfully put together for visitors. We also really appreciated the neighborhood and nearness to BART and a playground.

    I wish the hottub had been working but that would have just been icing on an excellent cake.

  • Charming, tidy, and adequately furnished house with private and inviting outdoor space. Great location - within walking distance to several Berkeley neighborhoods and shops and restaurants. The house offered everything we needed to cook, relax and entertain friends and family. Susan was responsive and accommodating.

  • Susan's house is wonderful. Bright, airy, spacious - the perfect landing pad for anyone visiting Berkeley. She stocked the house full of clean linens, household supplies, and even food/beer/'wine! A very thoughtful host with a very charming house... I would recommend this place without hesitation.

  • It was wonderful to stay Susan’s lovely house! Very clean and beautiful back yard! We felt at home in the comfortable rooms. Her house made our trip wonderful and she left sweet message with wines, coffee and sweets that made us so happy ;)
    Only 1block from Bakery shop so we went to get fresh bakery and coffee every morning! I am highly recommend to stay her house!!
