Guests often call this the best Airbnb in Berkeley, with old world charm reminiscent of the boarding house on Little House on the Prairie.

You'll find a comfortable single bed with high quality down bedding, a teak secretary desk, a tall bookcase, and a gentleman's valet. You'll have shared use of the comfy living areas, kitchen, and outdoors.

I was in Berkeley for school for 1 1/2 weeks and Amy's place was a perfect clean, quiet and peaceful oasis. She made sure I was comfortable and the place is spotlessly clean. I am looking forward to staying again in the future
