  • This time around Roz and Jesus were actually in Europe visiting their daughter, but their son Francisco was there to rent to me. He took good care of me, just the way his parents would have if they were there. I can't say enough good about this family.

  • Jesus was out of town, so I never met him, but Roselyn was a kind and gracious hostess. The room faces the back garden and is a peaceful respite while taking care of business in downtown San Francisco, just down the street from BART.

  • I can't speak enough good about Roz and Jesus. Simply put, they have become trusted friends and a great help to me as the Bay Area this last year and half has become somewhat of a second home. My most recent stay with Roz and Jesus was like my other stays with them, outstanding. Count yourself lucky if their room is available for you to stay in.

  • I thoroughly enjoyed my stay with Roselyn and Jesús. They’re kind, generous, and helpful people, and are centrally are a five-minute walk to North Berkeley BART. Their home is in a quiet and safe neighborhood, and within easy walking distances to virtually any services you may need.

    I’d absolutely stay with them again, and would recommend their home to any of my friends traveling to the East Bay Area.

  • I really can't say enough good about Jesus and Roselyn. Really, home away from how for me. I think this is the fifth time I have stayed with them and always get a clean room, bowl of fruit, and absolute kindness. I highly recommend Roselyn and Jesus' place any time.

  • Friendly hosts with an easy going household, we enjoyed our stay! The room is large and comfortable and in a safe area, only minutes from the Bart station at North Berkley with regular service to downtown San Francisco, the trip took 30 mins and cost $7.50 return fare. Downtown Berkley is a 20 minute walk, we did this at night after visiting the area's restaurants and bars and we found it to be a nice safe neighbourhood to walk back through. This is a good location for daytime sightseeing in San Francisco.
