A great guest!
Jake is a wonderful host.
This is a very interesting neighborhood with access to a lot of fun things like the Marina, Tomate cafe, bay bike/run trail, 4th street shops and restaurants, and the Missouri Lounge! Many times, we walked from the studio to UC Berkeley and back. The place is safe and clean and just what one needs to explore west Berkeley area. Good parking as well.
Spacious, clean, and simple. Exactly what we were hoping for! I showed up later than I had hoped (my fault, obviously!), but everything went smoothly and easily.
Jacob was great at communicating with us. Made sure there were all the accommodations we would've had in any hotel. Very inviting host.

The host was very accomodating and lived upstaris whch was ideal for any problems. Intternet access was good.The accomodation was exactly as shown on pictures set in a gated secure housing block in a predominately industrial/working area. Car needed to travel to shops/restaurants and beautiful 4th street (20 minute walk away) and the bay was only a 30 minute walk away. Great price for decent accomodation could do with comfortable chair and for working at computer. Air bed not ideal but comfortable. It all suited us fine as we were working most of the time on a film shoot. Would come back again.
We had a great experience in Berkeley staying with Jake! The space was exactly as portrayed online. When we got there we found a list of restaurants within walking distance and information on connecting to the internet. I was there to run the Nike Women's Marathon so Jake connected me with one of his friends who was also running. I was able to catch a ride into the city with her which was a HUGE help! He also let us check out a little late so we could gather our things and shower after our marathon, a huge help! Thanks for the hospitality Jake!
Jacob was a great host - the entire experience was perfect.
I had some phone/reception issues during my entire stay, but he made sure checkin was incredibly smooth + easy.
The space is great, tall ceilings, tons of light during the day, and enough books stocked for your downtime to relax and enjoy the place.
The area is a prime location, tons of restaurants and activities, and easy access to BART/AC should you choose to travel via public transit.
In addition to the things I had planned (check out Modern Eden Gallery if you want to make the commute), Jake took the time to ask what I was into and make recommendations based on his knowledge of the area.
All in all, a great stay and a terrific host. Thanks to Emily + Jake for sharing their great space.
We had a great time. The location was perfect. Jacob was the perfect host. Wonderful light, airy, private and quiet space. We never had problems parking. Great water pressure in the shower.
Jacob Aftergood was a very delightful guest to have over. My wife and I had a great time hosting him. He was easy going and clean, and we also got a chance to get to know him over the weekend! Welcome back anytime :)
