Enjoyed my stay. Judy was very personable and very interesting to talk to.The place was as described. Even though there was a train behind the house, it stopped running at 11 and I slept very soundly - the bed was very comfortable and the house was neat and clean. I would recommend having a car - I don't think transportation for the area was that user freindly, though I didn't research that closely.
Judy's house was very accommodating. Yes it may be in a sketchy neighborhood, but she does make you feel safe. It is loud with the train there, but if you need ear plugs she provides them for you. She's also a great character to talk to when in passing. I would stay there if I needed to again.
I really enjoyed my stay at Judy's home. As others have described, the neighborhood wasn't great, but I didn't think it was that bad and I never felt unsafe. Judy is a warm and friendly host and the room is nice. The only downside for me, was the train that ran behind the house. Most nights it stopped at 11pm, but one night it ran until 2am. Despite the train noise I would still recommend Judy's place.
Very nice place, you step inside and forget where you are. I enjoyed my stay and would recommend it to anyone. Lots of cheap food nearby too and Judy was wonderful!
My review is a tad late, but better late than never!
My stay at Judy's was comfortable, and she was very accommodating. It was fun talking to her about movies (and a lot of other things, but mostly movies), and her expert opinions on bay area neighborhoods helped in my search for a long-term stay. The two buses that stop a block away connect to BART stations and transbay buses, so moving around wasn't a hassle at all.
Overall, I enjoyed my stay with her, and absolutely recommend her place.
I was one of Judy's first Airbnb guests... I think maybe the third? Anyways, I enjoyed my time there. While the neighborhood is a little ghetto and off-putting at first, trust me when I say you will be safe in this place! I had no trouble getting around town and getting to BART. There is a bus just a few steps from the door that will take you directly to El Cerrito del Norte BART. Judy is a great host that truly cares about the people that she accepts. After hearing that I was new to the area, Judy gave me tons of useful advice about the area along with places and things to do and see! I would highly recommend staying here, as long as you look past the neighborhood.
