We didn't meet the host and hostess but they were in frequent email contact. During our stay I sent a message about my special wheelchair needs; Eric responded quickly and positively, at least in intention.
So saying, the bedroom and more particularly the bathroom were not put together with the wheelchair set in mind (no grab bars, difficult bath/shower). But everything was clean and worked well.
And the living room/kitchen component is atmospheric and charming, with delightfully oversized windows looking out over a very fun part of berkeley.
Altogether, I'd recommend this air bnb with the caveat that the wheelchair set check carefully into the current accessibility situation.
This was my second stay in this apartment (which is a testimony in itself!). The location is perfect for visiting the campus with lots of food and shopping options with downtown Berkeley just a stroll away. The apartment itself is clean, safe and homey. Eric was excellent with communication - making sure he touched based with me before, during and at the end of my stay. I had commented on a minor issue that needed to be addressed during my last stay and he had it fixed before this stay - great job and much appreciated! Would gladly stay here every time I am in the area.
Wonderful apartment and very friendly, communicative, flexible and accommodating hosts. Would stay again when in Berkeley!!! Very cosy and homely place...highly recommend!!
Very responsive and kind in communication. Yes as described. Neighborhood very accommodating and had all needed.
Cozy unit. Great location. Lots of places to eat and excellent area coffee shops very close by. There's no TV, but if you're like me, you'll be out enjoying Berkeley and/or San Francisco anyway.
It was a really great experience. The place was not only clean and well equipped, but also perfectly situated in downtown Berkeley, making access to the Bay Area a piece of cake. I hope to use this place again in early January, and I hope many more people do the same.
Eric and Cheryl were perfect. Very responsive and accommodating. The apartment was clean and perfect for what I needed. A very short walk to Cal, perfect if you're in town for a short while and need to be on campus. A huge variety of food choices in the neighborhood. The apartment is at the corner of Shattuck and Heart - a busy neighborhood with a walkable, urban appeal
This was my first AirBNB at it was wonderful! The hosts were very accomodating and excellent with communication. Location of this property couldn't be beat for a visit to Cal. An easy walk to campus or there are bus stops just outside the apartment. Plenty of restaurants within a few minutes walk. Building was well maintained and secure. Apartment was clean and comfy. No TV but I didn't need one so no issue there. It is a corner apartment on a busy street but the windows had great soundproofing so that was excellent. On the whole - a great experience and I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thanks!
We had a great time at this Berkeley apartment. It was perfectly located for getting to the UC-Berkeley campus for a conference, and very comfortable. We didn't try to cook a full meal in the kitchen, which is small, but it was useful for preparing baby bottles & keeping drinks/snacks on hand. The hosts were extremely responsive and accommodating regarding check-in/out and other communication.
Eric (& Cheryl) provided very helpful information before we arrived and they were in contact with us during our stay, in case we needed their help and advice. The apartment was as described, very conveniently located, very bright and cheerful. We really loved staying in the Gourmet Ghetto area of Berkeley and felt very safe and at home during our week's stay.
No problems, good communication, looks like they had a good time! Come on back!
Eric and his family were were friendly and a pleasure to have stay at our villa. I can highly recommend Eric as a guest.
It was a pleasure having Eric and his friends at our home. They were very respectful of the space, very communicative before and during their stay, and we hope they'll all come back again soon!
Eric Kho and family,
Unfortunately I did not meet in person with this beautiful family, as I just got home from an shoulder operation, sustained through a motorbike accident, please be careful everybody on the roads in beautiful Bali.
But the reviews I got from my staff and girlfriend is that they enjoyed their stay in Villa Tao very much.
A happy guest/family is for us very satisfying and we really hope to welcome back Eric Kho and family in the near future, as they are always more than welcome.
Hang loose and we will perhaps surf and have a drink when you come back to Villa Tao in the near future.
We really enjoyed hosting Eric: he was an absolute blast to have in the house. We were fortunate to get to spend lots of time with him and skied with him all day one day. It was awesome! He's a fantastic skier, a really great conversationalist and a really fun house guest. We would welcome him back to our home any time and I highly recommend that you do the same!
Eric was a real cutie pie! He blew in like a feather on the wind with a beautiful Audrey-esque girl who really could have been in the movies for mere moments before heading out on some madcap adventure for the evening, so I didn't really get to spend much time with him. But he had a wonderful way about him and was a great guest for the night he was here. And he'd be welcome back any time he so desired, as he should be welcome in homes of any other Air B&B hosts he might choose to contact in the future seeking accommodations. Look at that smile! How could anyone refuse a face like that?!?
