  • Judith was a great host. The room faces the front and it is very bright and airy, so it is good. Great and convenient stay for us. The only drawback is the shared bathroom.

  • We had a great time at judiths house. It was clean and everything was provided. Judith was very friendly and it was easy to communicate with her via email.
    I would always come back!

  • Very nice, clean, and quite home, a 5 minute walk to the Bart, and then a 15 minute ride into the heart of San Francisco! Berkeley is an awesome town and it is just a few minute walk to the nearest bus stop from Judith's home to take you all over Berkeley! Judith was VERY helpful and was available for any questions we had. Judith was helpful in many ways, a true and wonderful host! We enjoyed our stay and have no doubt you will to. Do not hesitate to take any 1 of the 3 rooms Judith has available.

  • The room was clean and quiet, with comfortable beds. The neighborhood is very pleasant for walking. I would stay there again.

  • Our host was there when needed and allowed for lots of privacy the rest of the time. The location was a short walk from the Ashby BART station which is one stop away from downtown Berkeley. We found a Whole Foods, 2 cafes for breakfast and a fantastic and casual reasonably priced Ethiopian restaurant (with a strong vegetarian aspect to the menu) all within walking distance:

  • My sons enjoyed their two week stay. There was a secure location for their bicycles and the room was comfortable. Judith helped them to feel at home in Berkeley. It is walking distance to two grocery stores and to several places to eat.

About
I am a College Professor, teaching at City College, S.F., in the Older Adults Department. I teach T'ai Chi Chih and Mind/Body/Spirit Health. I have a Private Counseling Practice in Berkeley, out of my home, where I counsel people with an emphasis on Holism. I teach a system called the Enneagram which describes 9 different personality types. It is a wonderful tool for deepening ones understanding of oneself. I conduct groups with this orientation. I love gardening and spend many hours in my luscious garden, meditating, doing T'ai Chi Chih and teaching classes, as well as pulling up the perennial little weeds which want to overwhelm my sunflowers, tomatoes, lettuce, cucumber, rose, cosmos, etc plants. I am basically, but not strictly, a vegetarian enjoying eating food from my garden, as well as the organic boxes of food delivered by FarmFreshToYou. I am working on a book and find the garden the perfect place to be writing. I am a Mother and a Grandmother, spending time with my very large extended family less than before. Everyone is growing up and very involved in their own wonderful lives! I'm grateful for the abundance of family. I have traveled extensively, Europe; from Turkey to India by land, when that was possible; Africa; Israel; Mexico, almost all of the 50 States. I love different cultures and meeting people and learning about their lives. My three favorite cities in the world are San Francisco, Istanbul, and New Orleans. I am an avid reader, as well as an amateur musician, picking up the clarinet and sitting at the piano periodically. I enjoy watching dvds from Netflex, my favorites so far have been West Wing and Treme. I don't watch tv. Dislike the commercials. I listen to NPR, KQED, KALW, KPFA, and KCSM, the 24 hour jazz station. I also enjoy the classical station.
