I had an ideal experience staying in this house for two months the summer of 2018 with my wife and two young children. Susan kindly met me on the first day to give me the tour of the house and offered many wonderful suggestions for activities in the area. The house of course is not large, but the space worked well for the four of us. Perhaps it helped that we have the experience of living in a small Tokyo apartment. The location was absolutely perfect for my summer research in the area, and there are many great restaurants, stores and parks within walking distance. The Berkeley Marina and Adventure Playground are about a 20-minute walk from the house. Whole foods and the Tokyo Fish Market also about 20-minute walks. The house is in a very friendly neighborhood with the Apple Store right around the corner (my son attended free workshops there). The nearest Bart station is also about a 20-minute walk.

The house is clean, nicely furnished and all appliances worked well. One of our duties was to water the plants, otherwise Susan does not currently have any pets. Susan was very accommodating and we stayed in touch via email when any questions arose. I highly recommend this housing option for anyone coming to the Bay Area. We immediately fell in love with the neighborhood and hope for opportunities to stay here again.

I have house-sat three times for Susan and can highly recommend her (and her home and adorable pets, Jake and Isa). The condo is great, and in a wonderful neighbourhood. Over the weeks and months, Susan and I communicated a great deal about Jake and Isa, and it was always straight-forward. She was generous with her time in answering my questions, even when she was in the jungles of Ecuador. She is a delight to deal with. Jake and Isa are just terrific too – you will not want to leave them. Excellent Ros Davidson 10/11/2010 11:27:00 AM
This woman made an agreement with me to housesit for her and later reneged on it in favor of someone else that she already knew (after I'd already based my sabbatical plans on our arrangement.) Be warned that she cannot be trusted to keep her word. You should not depend on actually getting the place. Disappointing Julie Mitchell 7/25/2009 8:13:00 PM
