Public school teacher (kindergarten) in CA. I love to dance, the ocean and to experience new people and places when I have a chance to travel. I am very respectful of people's homes when I stay.
I stayed with Jessica and Steven for about a week and highly recommend them. Their house is clean and they are kind and helpful. It was nice to have a private bathroom. The bed was very comfortable. It is a trundle bed (both mattresses comfortable). My boyfriend and I slept well although more in beds next to each other as there is a bit of a bump/gap between the two beds, so depending on what you are looking for, the room works just fine for 2. Jessica and Steven were fun to talk with and offered a lot ranging from tea/coffee/amenities at the house to recommendations for coffee shops to a ride to the airport. I plan on trying to stay with them again the next time I go back to CA.
Jessica and Steve are incredibly warm and kind hosts. They were very happy to help and opened up their home willingly - including coffee in the morning and invitations to eat with them. We enjoyed getting to know them and had great times learning about them, but they also respected our privacy.
Great location, safe and quiet neighborhood, but just blocks away from a direct bus to SF. Couldn't have asked for a better stay.
The hot tub was an amazing bonus! Would DEFINITELY recommend to anyone visiting the Bay Area!
Jessica and Steve were absolutely fabulous hosts!!! So friendly, helpful and always communicative and accessible. Their home is clean and beautiful, and I felt very comfortable staying there with them - almost as though I was staying with family members or long-time friends. As I fairly frequently return to the East Bay area, I will most certainly be back to visit and stay with them again myself! Five Stars - I HIGHLY recommend!
The area is really lovely. We had a great weekend at Jessica's and Stephen's place. Both are so nice and friendly so that you feel immediately at home and at the same time completely free.
Their room is really nice and comfy and the outdoor hottub is a real treat!
Firstly let me say that Jessica and Steve are the very best of hosts that I have experienced on Airbnb. From the moment that I arrived I was made welcome in their beautiful home. Nothing was to much trouble for them and their kindness to me throughout my stay are my lasting memories. They are interested in the world and other cultures and are willing to share their insights. They also respect your privacy if you need to be quite at times. Their lovely guest bedroom has an ensuite, and I enjoyed the comfort and peace at night. The house has excellant Wifi throughout for those who need to keep in touch. Their back garden is a special treat if you wish to sit outside during the day. Plenty of room to park your car in the house drive way. The house is located near a park which is ideal for picnics and walks. There is also a hot water spa at the end of the road. It is close to Berkeley and about 20-60 minutes by car depending on traffic to San Francisco. You can also drive to Silicon valley if you are on business (40 minutes). There is a Bart station nearby for those on foot or bike that is perfect for day trips to San Francisco (30 minutes). Their home is also ideally located for those who want to explore Marin county and the Napa valley. Both Jessica and Steve provided great recommendations on places to visit and eat in the East Bay and the city. They know the best places and I had a great time exploring one of the most beautiful cities in the world. The recently voted best coffee shop in the Bay area is located only 10 minutes from their home, try it out! There is also a classic cinema near the house in El Cerrito, a classic retro experience, cinematic heaven.
Whats more to say, only that if you are in the San Francisco area try and stay with this great couple you will not be disappointed.
So its a big thumbs up for me. I would not hesitate to stay here again if I am visiting the Bay area, which I hope will not be to long away. The best of times!
Jessica and Steve were easy guests. They were friendly, tidy and considerate of our home. They communicated their arrival plans clearly. We recommend them to other hosts.
Jessica & Steve were a warm couple and easy going guest, Extremely respectful of my home, orderly and neat. They were eager to explore Old San Juan in all it has to offer. They sampled the cuisine, beaches, & music. A young delightful couple that I look forward to their next visit.
