About Me
Mark purchased the Berkeley McGee House in 2005 to provide furnished comfortable housing for people visiting Berkeley (including visitors to UC Berkeley). Visitors at that time had very few options for furnished short-term housing; there were plenty of housing options which were unfurnished, and required a 9 month lease (where the renter had to setup their own utilities, etc.), but other than expensive hotels (which generally do not have kitchens, etc.), there were very few other options. The McGee House was designed to fit this need from the beginning. Mark has stayed at multiple "short-term furnished" vacation-style properties at many locations in the USA, as well as in Europe. Those experiences have been great for learning what is important to travelers/visitors. Mark lives about 15 blocks from the McGee House, and provides management to all guests of the house. He also works in the information technology arena, as well as in culinary services. You can see his main web site at http://www.vitalita.com/ . "I love the McGee House for it's comfortable furnishings and quite neighborhood, yet still close to many of Berkeley's best offerings, as well as the private back yard which is great for enjoying our sunny California days."
