Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Martina was a fantastic host! Her home is warm and spacious. I stayed in the Spacious European Room w/ Balcony and it was very clean and cozy. I slept well every night and was never disturbed by the rest of the house. I would highly recommend staying at Martina's.

  • Martina's home was so beautiful and full of life. A real home that was built by her family. Each and every piece of art work and furniture was picked by them or made with their family in mind. Such a warm environment staying with them, that you feel like part of the family. A true home away from home experience and their coffee is so awesome!

  • Martina and her family were lovely host! My stay wasn't in the 'Spacious European Room', it was in the 'Barn Style Room w/ A View'. The view was absolutely lovely, with a sizable balcony. And the room was very comfortable. I shared a bathroom with the woman in the room across form me which worked out well. The curtain that acted as a door was a bit interesting though.

    I stayed with Martina and her family for a whole week, but didn't get a chance to chat with them as much as I would've liked due to my crazy schedule. They were all very sweet and extremely welcoming! I can't wait wait to see that view again! xx

  • Staying at Martina's place was a lovely way to reenter the Bay area after being away several months. I felt welcomed and comfortable in this quiet, peaceful, colorful space: enjoyed the freedom of using the kitchen for cooking, planting myself at the community table to work, and the opportunity to have interesting and inspiring conversations with friendly people. I left feeling rested and energized!

  • What a magical space! If you are a fan of the east bay you will love the Emeryville location & the bonus of the ocean breezes blowing into the 2nd floor balcony. The house has delightfully high ceilings and beautifully finished woodwork that was "a labor of love". The Hostess is eager to accommodate all of her guests and is flexible with arrival & departure times. Understandably many happy souls extend their stays and Ms. M graciously finds them a nook (the 3rd story also has a balcony...maybe my next visit will find me there). As a bonus you can't beat the many cafes, bakeries and of course Berkeley Bowl West (just peruse Yelp for your options). In all my years of traveling to the bay area this is the perfect spot to nest whether traveling for business or pleasure.

  • I had a wonderful stay over there. Martina and her family cared a lot and made me feel like home. Unfortunately, i worked a lot and wasn't able to spend as much time with them as i wanted. I'd definetly come back!

  • Martina is very spirited. The room was clean and comfortable though just slightly chilly for me (I actually stayed in the Barn room, not this room.).

  • Die Verbindungen in die Nachbarstädte wie Oakland, Berkely und San Francisco sind gut. Es gibt einen kostenlosen Buszubringer zum BART.
    Lebensmitteleinkauf nur mir Auto möglich. Haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt.

  • The room was light and airy with a shared bathroom at top of winding staircase at top of a very large spacious house close to a bus stop for the free Emery Go round bus service to MacArthur Bart station. The house Is 1.3 miles from Ashby Bart and is on the edge of Emeryville which is a recently developed modern town. Bus and Bart make easy travel to San Francisco and SFO.

    Martina was away for much of our visit but when there, she was very engaging, friendly and helpful as was Micheal? Would definitely recommmend for further stays.

  • Martina, Michael and Dylan have a great place em Emeryville! Nice and comfortable house and a great room! It`s a little bit far from San Francisco, but the public transportation is pretty easy with a free shuttle that takes you to Bart Station (transportation for the Bay Area). We didn`t spend much time together, but they make me feel like home.

at home
Enjoy the tranquility of a custom build trophy home with a large sun deck on the third floor, two balconies and a sweet garden with a barbecue deck and native California plants. We lavish in guests who are on a mission with their lives yet have time to stop to chat for a moment. We are a wonderful community and prefer guests who are flexible in their room choices. I will always take your wish into consideration yet due to logistics I can not always adhere to my promises. This is to guarantee prices under market value. Please keep your showers short and dry your feet before you step out of the tub. Try to turn the lights of in the common areas when you leave a room. Free local bus i.e. McArthur Transfer station with Emery-Go-Around sponsored by Pixar to Bart/Metro, easy access to downtown San Francisco as well as Berkeley and Oakland. We travel a lot and enjoy times away trekking and camping. Often on extended stays in Europe. So if we do not get back to you right away it is because we are beyond WIFI. We are also very health conscious and therefore keep shoes off in the house and wash our hands often especially every time we enter the house to keep germs at bay. A piano, full kitchen, washer and dryer are for your use. We are wireless, cook mostly organic foods and participate in our local garden community. We live sustainably. Please let us know when you arrive so we can make arrangements to have someone open the garden gate. Check in time 3 pm and check-out time 12 noon. If you need time before and after it will be $ 5.00 per hour extra.
