My wife and I traveled to the Berkeley/Oakland area to visit our son who move there 5 years ago. (now we know why he did) This is a great friendly area. Staying at Jen and Tom's place for our visit made it feel like part of the community. Very comfortable accommodations, close to everything, well within walking distance to public transportation, but you really have everything you need close by. Look forward to returning to the area again, would recommend this place to anyone.
25 mins walk to closest BART, area average in terms of safety so not ideal for a single lady, close to great coffee shop and Berkeley Bowl which is a great grocery store.
All cooking utensils were great, shower great, all clean and tidy.
Tom was extremely responsive to everything so really helpful.
The apartment is as pictured, and Jenny and Tom are great hosts. It's a good location - plenty of parking and convenient to what Emeryville has to offer. Very comfortable!!
The apartment was exactly as it looked in the pictures. It was clean, spacious and have everything you needed and more! Even though it's on ground floor there was minimal noise from above.
It's a 15min walk to a great supermarket. BART is around a 20min walk.
Just some things to consider... being on ground floor the ceilings are lower than standard so if you are any taller than 6'3 it may be too low.
If you are a girl travelling by yourself, just be aware of your surroundings at night.
Overall. a great place to stay and Jenny and Tom were very accommodating and easy to communicate with. I would definitely recommend if you are looking to stay in the East Bay.
Jenny & Tom's place was great. They were fairly close to a BART station, several ZipCar locations, and Berkeley's campus. We intended to stay in SF but last minute booking put us in Oakland and we couldn't have been happier. We enjoyed the home and the surrounding area. We had ample space and all of the necessary amenities. There's plenty of good food in the area and the home was spotless.
Beautiful house, well located and close to a BART station. When back to SF/Oakland, will definitely stay there again!
I loved the house and neighborhood. It was super clean and many kitchen supplies. I highly recommend it.
Clean, well-equipped and spacious, Tom's & Jenny's apartment was a nice and quiet break from busy San Fran!
My mom and I stayed at Jenny & Tom's place for half a week while visiting family and found it much much nicer than staying in a hotel. The kitchen was stocked with all basics needed. The entire place was spotlessly clean and the furniture was very comfortable. I was a little worried about parking before arriving, but we did not have any trouble finding parking on the street the whole time we were there. This was my first time using AirBnB also and it was a very positive experience. Jenny was super responsive to questions also.
Nicely furnished and very functional unit. Well equipped kitchen area, comfortable bed, and a good bathroom. It's 20min walk from the Ashby BART. Effective communication with the host. Overall highly recommended.
Jenny and Tom were great guests. They were super easy to communicate with through out the booking process and were super low maintenance. I would recommend them to any host!
Jenny & Tom were wonderful to have on board - I had previously had a two night minimum, but Jenny wanted to much to sleep on the boat that I started offering one night stays on the boat which have turned out to be quite popular, so thank you for that, Jenny! Great communication, very respectful & tidy guests.
Very nice people.Clean and tidy Would recommend them as guests. !
Jenny was a great guest. She was kind, quiet, and courteous. What more would you want? I hope they stay with me again!
Jenny's family are lovely guests. They are friendly, clean, and on time. We are very happy to host them.
hi, thanks for taking care of my apt, I appreciate it, I wold recommend you to other hosts. thanks!
Jenny is an excellent, communicative guest and left the place very neat. I hope they visit again!
I do not reccomend these people as guests. I am a host that has had over 400 guests... It is important for guests to be understanding and patient when staying in someone's home (not a hotel) and not rude or seem to be losing composure. I had to check in another guest (for a different apartment) and I always want to make sure that I answer all my guests questions and make sure they are comfortable. That meant that Jenny and her boyfriend had to wait in the beautiful sunny day an extra 10 minutes. I would give them the same respect of taking the time to answer any of their questions too, and normally my guests understand that. Once I met them they seemed rude and impatient. They complained a lot and said they were in a rush and did not even want me to explain the information that I normally do to all my guests. They even complained about my cleaning fee which is mentioned in bold letters in my listings details. They also left me a bad review complaining about trivial things that hundreds of other guests never complain about. My nicer guests love the apartment that Jenny stayed in and review it as such, they didn't.... Wonder why...
Ho ospitato Jenny e il suo fidanzato per due giorni nel mio appartamento e sono stati gentili, puntuali, puliti e rispettosi delle regole condominiali. E' stato un piacere! Spero di rivederli presto! Grazie!
ospiti tranquilli e riservati! niente di negativo e la casa è stata lasciata perfettamente in ordine!!! li consiglio davvero
