Julie provided a warm, balanced environment. It was the right amount of comfort and technology. Everything had style, from the ribbons on the cords to the beautiful lights and statues and figures around the space. I am looking forward to staying here again.
Julie's Zen-space was a charming, cozy place and very conveniently located. I love the house and she has a real flair for decorating. The plants are gorgeous and healthy, and I very much appreciated the fresh posies.
The check-in/out instructions were very clear and communications were straightforward. Thank you for having us!
We had a wonderful stay in this sweet little place. Everything is clean and well organized with lots of sticky notes explaining things. We loved all the plants and sunshine. It is on a busier street than we expected but was still relatively quiet. We would definitely stay here again.
Lovely! Adore the bungalow feel and the bed was a dream. Which is huge for me as alot of places look wonderful and don't feel great. Julie's place feels and looks wonderful. :)
This was a wonderful experience from beginning to end. I felt completely cared for by Julie's thoughtful anticipation of her guests' every possible need. Her impeccably clean space is small but the apartment is extremely comfortable, well equipped, well-laid out and highly organized. Julie's artistic eye is evident in the furniture and tasteful decoration. I loved sleeping in the ultra comfortable bed decked out in fresh crisp bedding.
In my contacts with Julie she proved to be as charming as her apartment.
I had been having quite a difficult day prior to check in; the moment I stepped through the door the day turned cheerful and happy. Thank you Julie!
This is is great one bedroom, efficient apt. on the border of Berkley & Oakland in an urban neighborhood. Located within minutes of Berkley Bowl West, Homemade Restaurant, Urban Ore, 4th St, CAL .
The apartment is immaculate and well laid out, everything we needed was there. We walked to breakfast at Homemade one day, grabbed coffee at Mojoe's the next and enjoyed a brunch with goodies from Berkley Bowl in the sunny back yard. We spent our days leisurely walking different neighborhoods, searching new finds ~ pottery, claw foot tubs, Italian stationary, Yarns, hardwood slab tables, birdhouses, succulants, and some great little places to eat. Enjoyed an evening at the Fox Theatre in Oakland.
Although we did not meet face to face, Julie was quick to respond to each communication she was clear and available. This worked great for us.
We had a wonderful time in Berkley, we would stay in the sunny zen apt again.
Julie's zen apartment is exactly that! It's very relaxing after the craziness of the city. We had everything we needed and the apartment was warm and inviting. We especially loved the fairy lights in all the rooms. The kitchen is well stocked and we managed to have a couple of home cooked meals. We also parked our car at North Berkley BART stn for $3 and caught the BART into San Fran each day. All up a lovely stay.
We enjoyed our stay at your home, you made us feel very welcomed. We appreciated your creativity in decorating and use of space, it was cute and practical. When we had questions, we appreciated your prompt response and action. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking meals. The one surprise for us was the tub did not have a shower element and we are more inclined to shower versus soak in a tub.
The listing on Airbnb specifically mentions in two different sections of the text description that there is only a claw foot tub without a shower.
Julie's home is centrally located in Berkeley and very easy to get to the yummy restaurants and shops on 4th Street. Her home is extremely clean, tidy, and organized. The bed was very comfortable and I fell asleep both nights as soon as my head was on the pillow. Kitchen items were very assessable and made fixing a quick snack easy. She provided all the comforts of home. Her design since was great, with comforting touches and coordinated colors in every corner. Art was a nice mix of zen and modern. All in all a restful and pleasant experience. Thank you Julie!
Julie really took great care in making her place ready for our visit. Her directions for entry were clear and easy to follow and so helpful since we arrived after 9pm. Although we did not meet her she was responsive and anticipated what we might need. Her home was absolutely charming and she had lots of information printed out to direct us to interesting destinations in the neighborhood. The additional heater that she made available was perfect for taking the chill off at night and the bed was comfortable and cozy. We loved the tub, the lighting and the personal charm of her home. She even had a guest book with comments from other appreciative guests! We enjoyed our stay very much.
Julie has been a guest at my house several times and every time she stays i like her more and more. Aside from being sweet and friendly, she really is the ideal guest. Communicative, thoughtful, considerate, and really cares for my home as if it were her own. She also pays attention to details and offered some positive comments about my improved space. It's nice when people notice the little things :)
