Had the best experience in this urban farmhouse. The bedroom is one of the cleanest rooms, in which I have ever stayed. The bed has crisp white sheets and the quiet location meant I slept great. John was an excellent host, even going above and beyond, coming to my aid when I suffered the misfortune of food poisoning one night. The location is central and so it’s easy to get anywhere around the Bay. Highly recommend!

Response from John:
Potential guests: please note that the *bedroom* is super clean... most of my house is actually quite messy!! I just want to make sure everyone has realistic expectations ;) Thanks for the great review, Mary!

John is a super host! Elsewhere, my housing fell through at the last minute and John, with a couple hours notice, set me up perfectly. Highest recommendation.

John’s house was clean and he was very kind and quick to respond. He made my stay near Berkeley easy and enjoyable. The bed and pillows were also very comfortable :)
