I am a writer and evaluator of public programs, and Rob and I have a long history of hosting guests. We have houses in Berkeley and Oakland.
I had a really nice stay! Faith and Rob are great hosts and the house is wonderfull! My room with a very comfortable bed and everything else what is needed was as good as the completely equipped kitchen. I really enjoyed cooking, eating and spend there some time with the other guests. Everything was very clean and quiet (also the neighborhood). UCB, supermarkets like Wholefoods, Berkeley Bowl and Wallgreens, as well as many restaurants, bus stops and the Ashby BART station are in walking distance. To sum it up, an awesome accommodation! Thank you Faith and Rob for your hospitality.
I really enjoyed living in Faith and Rob's house - the room is in a quiet and peaceful neighborhoodroomies are nice people, the kitchen is good for cooking, the living room is spacious and well decorated. Wholefoods, restaurants and UC Berkeley are all within walking distance.
Thank you Faith and Rob!
Response from Faith And Rob:
Thanks for your nice review; come back any time! best, Faith
My experience was superb, one of the best I have had in life! The hosts were so good and kind, the room was super clean and comfortable (Exactly like in the pictures..) .. The fact that you have a very nice kitchen adds to the goodness of the experience.. It was also amazingly quiet and peaceful..This is where I'd like to stay every time I'm back in Berkeley..
(Thank you so much, Faith and Rob! :) )
I had a great time
Faith and Rob were fabulous hosts. From the days leading up to my stay, to the time I checked out, there was constant communication between me and them. The guest room was lovely, located off the back of the kitchen, I had access to my own private bathroom as well as a balcony over the backyard. The other longer term guests in the house were also very friendly. I would definitely stay here again.
I had a really nice stay, my bed was super comfortable, the room was large, and the house is very nice. Faith and Rob were friendly, ie. invited me to their Thanksgiving party! I mostly got to know Rob, who is a very cool guy, highly knowledgeable in a variety of domains.
The area is perfect for Berkeley, very close to grocery stores, bus stops and Bart. I totally recommend staying here. :)
Rob and Faith are wonderful! They had a lot to offer both of us, and were very accommodating. It was also very neat to meet the other guests who would come and go over our stay. I would definitely stay here again the next time I came by Berkeley.
The neighborhood was also very wonderful, and it was right by a Whole Foods store. (Very convenient for those with food allergies or dietary restrictions!) The location and company are worth a full five out of five. Please give Rob and Faith's place a try!
Faith and Rob were great, very accommodating and friendly, and you get the reassurance right away that they know exactly what they are doing and everything is very straightforward. I got to speak with others at the house a bit, but I was pretty busy, so not that much. But everyone seemed not only cool and nice but pretty interesting as well. Just as advertised.
Faith greeted me on time with a big smile. The Friendly House is easy to find, comfortable, convenient and clean. Faith provided every convenience and comfort needed. Shared kitchen, living room and multiple bathrooms were all well appointed. I had a sound nights sleep on a comfortable bed before taking an exam in downtown Oakland. Great experience!
Thank you, Faith, for making me feel like I'm right at home! The location and the atmosphere is the best that you can get (close to BART, buses, shopping etc.). I enjoyed my time here, and would definitely recommend this great place with great hosts to anyone looking for location combined with a perfect service! Miry
Faith was neat and clean and she can come and stay with us anytime. She communicated well and we wish her all the best.
