Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • House was very nice, location is great. Beds and linens were terrific, outdoor areas were also very nice for relaxing.
    The parking space isn't really a parking space at all, but off-street parking was not an issue. Also be aware that there is a unit below that is also rented via airbnb, so you may run into other guests in the outdoor spaces.

  • Our host did an excellent job. She provided plenty of linens. She was very receptive to our suggestions. The kitchen could do with some additional pans, such as a non-stick frying pan and a small and medium saucepan. The house was charming, and lived up to the description.
    We were invited to use the herbs in the garden. The parking space was too small for our Mercedes, but street parking was satisfactory.
    The neighbourhood was comfortable, and felt safe; it was pretty, with nice houses and gardens. The area is quiet, but very convenient to excellent shopping in both Piedmont and College Ave/Rockridge.

  • We enjoyed the house and good location for getting to the freeway or to close by shopping and dining areas. Off street parking area is very narrow only suitable for a very small car but we were always able to find street parking close by. Also close to Safeway and CVS. Great sunny kitchen and nice front porch.

  • We had a wonderful week in Oakland, there was enough room for the five of us and for our children who live in Oakland to come visit. The house is obviously well maintained, as while we were there Judy came by to tell us that the painter was coming to do the trim outside. It was very easy to get to everywhere from the house, the Safeway was a quick walk down the street Our granddaughter thought that it was really Grandma's house when she came to see us. Believe it or not we never had any trouble finding parking and we had rented a van! We are so happy with our first experience with airbnb that we will use them again and if we need another place in Oakland we know a great place.

  • I do not recommend staying here. I came into Berkeley for a wedding with a group of friends. Judy's house was spacious and well kept. However, I had a very bad experience with Judy and did not appreciate her lack of hospitality. Before we even arrived she asked us to pay extra for cleaning and a separate tax. I agreed, giving her the benefit of the doubt, even though it seemed abnormal for airbnb. Then I tried to arrange to pick up keys early, as we were part of the wedding party and had lots of details to attend to. She failed to respond and when she finally did, told me there would be a $25 early checkin fee. If you've ever been part of a wedding party, you would understand the amount of stress involved on the big day so dealing with this was really not fun.

    The reason I use airbnb is to avoid the impersonal experience of staying in big hotels. At the end of the day, it's not the money I have a problem with but rather her lack of graciousness and kindness towards her guests. This was unfortunate, as every other airbnb host I've had has been just amazing and my trip was always enriched because of it!

    Response from Judy:

    I am sorry your experience was not what you expected. I had a really hard time connecting with you. I e mailed you numerous times and left a voice message without a response from you until late on the night before your arrival. The home was being cleaned early before your check in and since you had so many guests with you , it would be hard on the housekeeper so we discourage an early check in. I think because you were only staying one night it would have worked out better if you had connected with me earlier in the week instead of the last minute to work out any details. The cleaning fee and the Occupancy Tax are clearly stated in the AIRBNB listing

  • This place is amazing. One of the best AirBnb locations I've been to. **Very** close to the Safeway, Starbucks and CVS which makes getting supplies for the house a breeze even if you don't have a car. Also very close to some restaurants and locations in Piedmont and the Rockridge BART.

  • Our stay at Judy's charming craftsman was very comfortable. The house was warm, the bedding and beds extremely comfortable, and the kitchen well stocked with everything we needed. It was an ideal location within walking distance of Piedmont Avenue with restaurants and shops. Since we were with young toddlers (1 & 3) it was conveniently located near a variety of parks, Lake Merritt and Fairyland. We had a crib and high chair which helped tremendously with the youngsters. Although we had a Dodge Caravan we never had a problem finding parking.
