A beautiful, large, tranquil Victorian home and retreat-like setting in the South Berkeley area, only 2 blocks from the Ashby BART station (the local subway) . Architecturally colorful and unique, very conveniently located near cafes, restaurants, bakeries, and the celebrated Berkeley Bowl grocery.

The house is very well located with a safe neighborhood and close to the Bart station. If you are going to study at Berkeley for a while it is a very good place to stay. Deborah responds quickly to the messages and the house is clean.

Deborah's place provided me with a serene environment for my week in Berkeley. I'm an artist and I actually got a lot of writing and thinking done in the home because it's so quiet. Respecting the rules actually makes your stay more peaceful and delightful. Great place to stay…

It's a nice place very close to the Bart station which is relevant if you are looking to commute to the city. It's a nice quiet place with all amenities.

This is a nice room. The location is very convenient, with Ashby BART station less than a five minute walk away and the Berkeley Bowl a bit further than that. It's a cheaper choice for visiting students at UC Berkeley for a medium-length stay.

Interaction with guests
I like to talk with guests when they arrive, but I am a pretty private person as well as someone needing large blocks of private time for creative projects, so after I get home from work I tend to spend time alone. I also am out quite a bit on weekends. I tend to chat with…
