We love this house and this neighborhood, which is close to all the action in the Bay Area, but quiet, safe, and surrounded by open space. We have a huge yard and gardens in the front and backyard. The recycling center up the block has a covered and organized book exchange-- it's like a free used book store. There is great hiking out right from the door, and even a small vineyard and orchard up the street-- a nice green mecca adjacent to a world class city. You'll love staying here!

We enjoyed our stay at Betony's clean and comfortable house in El Cerrito. Particular high points of the stay for me were 1) the cozy heat from the gas fireplace in the living room and 2) walks in the El Cerrito Hillside Natural Area -- native oak forest, eucalyptus groves and m…

My family had a wonderful time at Betony's family's green home. Their home was comfortable, warm and definitely "green" in every way. It was a perfect place for adults and children alike. My nephew was right at home in the kids' room. The garden in back and in front are great, …

Response from Betony:
Thank you Leah, I'm glad you enjoyed the house and toys and neighborhood. Thank you for leaving $20 in the kids room as a courtesy. That was an unexpected treat for them as were the toy trucks. You were very thoughtful and communicative guests.

We chose this house because it was so near our son's home that we could walk back and forth. Our host immediately picked up on that and I felt we were dealing with someone we almost already knew. The house was comfortable and was well represented by the photos and written descr…
