Kate's welcoming and cozy space was exactly as listed and we loved all the small details that made us feel comfortable. A brief conversation about our diets resulted in items in the fridge and some delicious low wheat brownies waiting for us upon arrival. A great neighbourhood, lovely house and cute terrace area for morning coffee add up to a good experience. The treats were a lovely touch!
My wife and I stayed here for several weeks while searching for long-term housing in the Bay Area. The other reviews have it covered: Kate is a welcoming and responsive host who accommodates guests with professionalism.
The apartment is clean, quiet, and light-filled. You'll see "cozy" come up often in other reviews -- the space is, in other words, on the smaller side. We were comfortable during our stay, but I'd be hesitant to recommend it for more than two adults.
The neighborhood is great. It's safe, walkable, and close to several amazing restaurants (Kate helpfully provides a guide with notes and recommendations). We loved being able to walk to the Cheeseboard for pastries and coffee each morning. A note about Berkeley in general: cell coverage is super spotty, and I often had trouble making calls during my stay. Of course, your mileage may vary.
In closing, this is an ideal East Bay spot for a solo traveler or couple. Thanks much, Kate.
We absolutely loved staying at Kate's place. It's a cozy, tastefully furnished studio apartment with lovely garden views and in a beautiful Berkeley neighborhood at the foot of the hills and in walking distance to several gourmet neighborhoods. Kate was an extremely welcoming and helpful host, and she stocks the apartment with tasty treats, including Peet's coffee, teas, wine, homemade granola, nuts and other snacks. I stayed with my two college-aged daughters as we visited relatives; Kate provided a futon bed for a third sleeping space. It's definitely cozy for three, but we all loved it! The location can't be beat, and we especially enjoyed the small garden patio with small table and two chairs that received the warm winter sun. Really a wonderful experience. We would definitely stay again.
We enjoyed staying in Kate's apartement very much! It is a clean and cosy room and very well equipped. We especially liked all the "little" amenities like fruit, snacks and a bottle of wine. Kate was a wonderfull and friendy host. The breakfast was absolutely delicious! We would definitely stay again!
The flat was really clean and comfortable and there was plenty of space, plus a heater for the chilly nights which came in handy. Everything I needed was in the kitchen including lovely home made granola and jars of cookies and nuts - plus my favourite Peets coffee! Kate was a delightful and thoughtful host and it was a real pleasure to stay in her home. This was my first airbnb experience and it has set a truly high standard.
I booked Kate's apartment on behalf of my parents. Kate made things really easy and my parents felt well taken care of. From my parents:
"Kate's rental was cosy and well equipped. We especially appreciated the healthy snacks and selection of cheeses and thoughtful bottle of wine. The unit is up a flight of garden stairs (mentioned in the write up) which is a bit of a challenge lugging a heavy suitcase, but not a problem for light packers!"
Kate went out of her way to make us feel welcome. The accommodation was clean and comfortable, suitable for two, ideal for one
The area is busy but we were not disturbed as it was very quiet in the unit. It was very convenient to local amenities.
Kate is very knowledgable about the area's restaurants and willing to share her expertise.
We much enjoyed both the location, the place itself and Kate's friendly approch. We highly recommend This place.
This apartment in Berkeley was perfect for our stay. Clean, bright, "happy", and decorated in a soothing style, it is walking distance to the Gourmet Ghetto and very comfortable and private. We felt so welcomed and at home. We enjoyed sitting on the little private patio area "above" the neighborhood tucked in the beautiful landscaping with our breakfast or glass or wine. The bed was comfortable, there is room to sit and relax, a desk , and the closet helped us get settled for a week. The kitchenette area was perfect for our needs with the refrigerator, electric kettle, microwave, toaster oven and even dishes, plates, silverware. Kate provided some great snacks, teas and coffee. I saw the reviews for the delicious gourmet breakfasts, but they really don't do justice to how wonderful and beautiful these breakfasts are. Every day was a new delight to see what Kate prepared for us delivering it with a GOOD MORNING smile! This apartment is a lovely gem. I am missing it already. We look forward to coming back next year.
Kate was a fantastic hostess- very responsive to questions and recommendations, and made delicious breakfasts. My husband and I enjoyed our stay and would recommend this place - perfect for a couple!
