  • Originally booked for 2 nights but 7 days out reduced to 1 night; process to get refund was easy and simple. Checked in at 6pm. Instructions to the room was simple. House is "old" with character. I loved it. No frills. My room was the bedroom with the sitting area. I thought it was cozy. The library was majestic; I didn't spend any time in it. Bathroom did have a big ominous spider that I had to flush down the toilet. I did not use the shower. Slept well through the night. When I left it was easy.... No dealing with people. On my way out I did get to run into Spencer who was full of advice and help with the drama I got myself into. It was very thoughtful of him. If I come back to the area I will definitely stay in this home again. Oh it's walking distance to a really cute cafe called elmwood... The neighborhood is totally safe, but totally dark and kinda spooky at night.

  • The room was clean and the bathroom was conveniently located nearby. Lots of great dinner option nearby! We never met Spencer. My husband and I were heading out for 4th of july fireworks and were very unprepared for the chilly night. I looked around the house for someone and came across a nice family member of Spencer who let us borrow some layers. She was very kind. My husband and I felt a little uncomfortable with the check-in and check-out procedure because it seemed a little insecure (for the host) and we did not have any interaction. Some travelers will enjoy the no-interaction, hands-off experience though! For us, it would've been nice to meet Spencer. We only stayed a night so this shouldn't count at all as a negative. It was just our experience. The library is GORGEOUS and the house is truly breathtaking. Recommended for the beautiful house and great location!

  • Spencer is responsible and very responsive. The house is close to UC Berkeley, and the neighborhood is very nice and quiet. The bed was great. I enjoyed my stay and the value was excellent.

  • My first Air B&B experience, with some trepidation, and it turned out to be a marvelous experience. The home itself is gorgeous, and Spencer was the most gracious and generous host imaginable. He made a week-long festival/conference experience, which can sometimes be stressful, pure joy, and helped me out with some very special things I needed. There just aren't enough stars.

  • I loved staying at Spencer's house. It is large and beautiful in a fabulous neighbourhood. The house is walkable distance from the university and downtown Berkeley but also in a great cafe and shopping precinct of Elmwood. The bedrooms and bathroom were very clean. They are off a fabulous library that is available for use. Spencer was a helpful and friendly host but also happy to leave me to do my own thing. I would recommend the room and Spencer as a host very highly.

  • Staying with Spencer was great. He was extremely friendly, always available, and very helpful in getting information on the area. The room was very comfortable and clean, as well as the bathroom. The neighborhood was VERY nice and the location is great, with easy access to College Ave (walking distance; very nice walk) where one can find several restaurants and boutiques. It's also conveniently close to a Whole Foods and public transportation (BART and Bus).

About
My sister and I have been hosting on and off for almost 2 years. The vast majority of guests are satisfied with the service. We have met a lot of wonderful, interesting people through hosting, and we are happy to answer questions and give advice about the area. Occasionally we slip up and miss a spot cleaning when we are in a hurry or we make some logistical mistake. We try to learn from these mistakes and avoid repeating them. If you have an issue with our service we encourage you to bring it to our attention during your stay so we can fix the situation. If you have a complaint which is due to a mistake rather than willful negligence or disrespect we encourage you to bring it to our attention privately rather than publicly. We offer you the same courtesy in return. There is no kitchen access, and last, if you are planning on taking a nap promptly upon arrival please let us know in advance so we can make sure your room is ready right when you arrive. Otherwise, while you will be able to check in at any time, your room may not be ready until the evening.
