My wife and I are from Berkeley, California. We are both 32 years old and work for Bay-Area non-profits. We enjoy cooking (and eating good food), hiking and board games.
This was a beautiful comfortable home conveniently located-- easy walking distance from Berkeley Bowl supermarket and San Pablo Park ( great for kids) with a very well equipped kitchen and plenty of space.
We highly recommend it as an excellent, attractive place to stay even for several weeks.

This is a great apartment. Centrally located. Kitchen was great, too. Hosts were awesome and very communicative and accommodating. Definitely recommend it.
Josh's place was what we wanted -- a cozy, well appointed social hub for me and my two kids over the holidays. The living room is comfortable for reading, watching a movie or socializing. The dining room seats 6 and adjoins an exceptionally well appointed kitchen. It was as advertised.
Thank you very much Joshua for making your home available to us for the weekend. It was so nice to stay in a real home rather than a hotel. Joshua was excellent in communicating to us how everything worked and even offered to us the daily fresh laid eggs from the chickens in the yard. My two girls felt right at home immediately. We had an amazing weekend.
This is a lovely little home in a safe area of Berkeley. Josh and Emily have decorated it beautifully, and clearly put a lot of love into it. The colors are perfect and the house is very clean! The kitchen is fabulous and the beds are comfortable. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a place to relax and explore Berkeley.
My wife and I stayed at Josh & Emily's beautiful house recently while house hunting in the area. Their home is a clean, quite and peaceful sanctuary where we felt totally at home. Nice hardwood floors, a great kitchen, comfortable bed, cozy relaxing area, just what we needed.
They have a lovely garden where we sat and enjoyed the sunshine a few times. The neighborhood feels very safe and was extremely convenient to the Oakland-Bay Bridge and San Francisco, and great grocery shopping at Berkeley Bowl. BART is only a few minutes away as well.
They were excellent at communicating and we felt truly at home. I would highly recommend their place without hesitation.
I'd say the best part of the experience was that when you stay in someone's home you are exposed to that persons energy and we felt nothing but positive energy from their wonderful house.
Nice family with an infant. Sorry, I had the flu and stayed elsewhere. Left place in good condition.
Josh and Emily are fabulous people - they are warm, welcoming, interested in lots of things, and well-traveled. They are very active and passionate about the Bay area, so they always have fun ideas of things to do and neighborhood spots to check out. Their home is easy to get to from BART, very cozy and clean, and their sunny backyard is a fun place to sit with a glass of wine.
Josh and Emily have a really great house in a very convenient area of Berkeley just a few blocks from a BART station. They keep their place very clean and organized, have an awesome, well equipped kitchen, and a comfy living and dining room. Both bedrooms look over their backyard patio and garden which is a great place for a cup of tea or a glass of wine when the weather is nice. I highly recommend a stay in their comfortable, clean, and well-equipped home.
When we moved to the Bay Area we stayed at Josh and Emily's house for three weeks!
It was an incredible introduction to the area. Their neighborhood is lovely, and an easy walk to the BART, so everything else is within easy reach. Plus, the home itself is amazing. They re-did most of the house after they loved in, so everything in modern, and they've got two amazing yards.
If you're looking for Berkeley, I couldn't recommend staying here enough.
