This was my second time staying with Jessica and Steve. They are both wonderful hosts who make every effort to make their guest feel welcome and are always on hand if you need anything! Thanks guys. My home away from home!!

Jessica and her partner were amazing hosts who made me feel extremely welcome and comfortable in their home. It was a very positive Airbnb experience and I wouldn't hesitate to request staying with them again! The room was clean as described, the bed comfortable and both her and Steve were extremely hospitable. I would highly recommend them as hosts! Thanks to the both of you for making my trip all the more enjoyable :)

Home away from home. You rent a space, but you get an experience. The home: Very nice and Comfortable. The location: Peaceful and Convenient. The Host: Friendly, Kind, and Considerate. Jessica and Steve go out there way to make you feel comfortable. It was very pleasing to get to talk with them about other life issues. Instead of feeling like you have joined them in a business transaction you are treated as though you are a member of the family just in for the holidays. It's easy to see that they truly enjoy people.

Super welcoming hosts! We asked them very very last-minute if we could stay at their place, and they were very quick in responding, arranging everything... Half an hour drive from san francisco (if traffic is okay). Beautiful house & room, they were very helpful in the planning of our further trip! We could even use the hot tub in the garden and had a nice chat with them while having breakfast in the garden. Nice experience In every way!

We had an amazing stay with Jessica and Steve. We felt at home immediately. They are both very warm and genuine people and next time I am in the Bay Area I will not hesitate to stay with them again. Their home is lovely and the front and back yard is goregous and lined with blooming rose bushes. This way my first airbnb stay and it bay far exceeded my expectations. Our room was clean and extremely comfortable. Thank you Steve and Jessica! Cheers:)

Jessica and Steve are AMAZING people. By far the best AirBnB stay that I have had thus far. They are very accommodating and they genuinely care about the well-being of their guests. I stayed here with a friend while looking for a permanent residence in the East Bay/SF area and they offered great insight on which neighborhoods to check out. The space looked EXACTLY like the photos they have posted, and the energy surpassed my expectations. I am very appreciative of their hospitality. We found a true gem in Richmond!

I had a great stay at Jessica's place! I didn't have chance to meet her but I met Steve who is an awesome host, warm, kind and helpful. The place is very nice too, clean, sunny, private and peaceful with two lovely cats! I would recommend this place to anyone visiting the bay area and would definitely stay here again.
