Ralf was a wonderful host. My room was lovely and very comfortable. He went above and beyond when my car broke down and left me stranded in a new city! I highly recommend Ralf for a welcoming stay in a great location.
Wonderful as always!
Travis was very easy to talk to and very accommodating!
A very sunny and warm house.
Travis is a very gracious and welcoming host. He seems to truly enjoy sharing his home and getting to know his guests. His home is lovely (shared with his polite son who I rarely saw) with warm artwork adorning every wall. He often played soft classical or jazz music in the kitchen which was lovely to wake up to. The kitchen itself is well-lit and large, with every convenience you could wish for. The guest bed was comfortable and the house was kept warm. I highly recommend staying with Travis!
Response from Ralf Travis:
Thank you Marcella. You are very kind.
This lovely, quiet, room and beautiful backyard was a peaceful oasis in the East Bay. Travis offered a warm welcome to his beautiful home, tucked into the hillside neighborhood of Richmond, CA. He was very thoughtful and kind host, who has mastered the art of post-it note communication, so that every detail is given due attention. With a large and sunny kitchen and clean space, I was perfectly comfortable and at home.
Taking day trips with a car, this was great place to start out from and discover the surrounding cities and regional parks. It was a short drive into Berkeley, and to the BART stations. Also, it was easy to travel North into wine country. I will recommend this experience with friends and family visiting the area and will look forward to my next visit.
Es war richtig schön, Ralf und seine Mutter für 4 Tage als unsere Gäste zu haben. Sie sind beide freundlich, humorvoll und gern für einen kleinen Plausch zu haben. Und sie haben beide ein großes Herz für Hunde :-) Die Wohnung haben sie in Top-Zustand hinterlassen - vielen Dank noch einmal dafür! Wir würden uns sehr freuen, die beiden irgendwann einmal wieder bei uns als Gäste zu begrüßen!
It was a pleasure to have Ralf and his mother as guests at our house on their 4-day-trip. They are very friendly and we enjoyed our little talks here and then. And they both are dog-magnets :-) Our dog loved them. They left the flat in a top-condition, everything was perfectly cleaned - thanks for that! We would be glad to host them again.
Ralf was a great guest! He left the place spotless. Glad he enjoyed the cottage and had FUN around Venice.
Ralf und seine Mutter waren sehr liebe Gäste. Sie haben unser altes Häuschen respektvoll behandel und tiptop hinterlassen. Wir hoffen, daß es Ihnen wirklich gefallen hat und sie trotz früherer Abreise ein wenig an unserem Ländle Gefallen finden konnten.
Great guest, you are welcome back anytime in Venice!
