My family (self, spouse, 13-year-old child) stayed here August 2017-February 2018, and it was a wonderful experience. It's an easy and scenic ~1.5 mile downhill to Cal (passing the Rose Garden with sporadic views of the bay and Golden Gate Bridge), and it's directly on the 65 bus route if you don't feel like walking back home uphill. The house is clean and in great shape-- love the back deck especially. No bugs at all. Everything you'd need is here-- sheets, towels, cooking items, dishes, silverware, etc. Rent is VERY reasonable given what other places in the same area go for. Michelle is super-responsive to any needs or repairs: e.g., when the microwave broke, she dropped off a new one literally the next day. She hires staff to take care of all exterior/ yard upkeep, too. I can't imagine having gotten a better place for my sabbatical! Excellent Mohamed Noor 2/11/2018 11:33:00 AM
We stayed here from March 2011 to September 2012. We had nothing but great experiences with Michelle and with her home. The house is well-maintained, nicely decorated, and equipped with everything you could need. The deck is fabulous. We highly recommend it. Excellent E Cooper 8/4/2012 11:28:00 AM
We rented Michelle’s home for a short time in the summer. Her home is just as described – sunny and comfortable in a great neighborhood. A perfect location for access to all the East Bay has to offer. All of our interactions with Michelle were positive – she is a gracious person and made all of the transactions/logistics easy for us.

We had an excellent stay in Michelle's house during the 2010 spring semester. Three of us shared the house (one bachelor and one married couple), and coordinated the entire rental with Michelle online. The house was even more gorgeous than we had expected from the photographs! We found it in great condition and located in a quiet, beautiful neighborhood. It is a bit of a hike / bike to campus and the gourmet ghetto, the two closest centers of activity, but it suited a trio of young post-docs perfectly.

Michelle was a pleasure to communicate with throughout our entire experience. We found the lease straightforward (compare another reviewer's feedback), although we were required to purchase renter's insurance.

We highly recommend renting Michelle's house!

We loved this place- good location, great setting, and a landlord who is very accessible by email and able respond to any queries or issues you might have to make your life more comfortable. Perfect for 2. Brilliant for dog owners (good parks nearby). We were sorry when our sabbatical came to an end. Penny and Alan CANADA Excellent Penny Hawe 4/9/2010 5:38:00 PM
