Orli is a wonderful host. She prepared us for the expectations in her home during our stay, so everything went very smoothly. The home was clean and had all the necessities. We were running late during check out and she gave us extra time and space to collect all of our things in private. I would recommend staying here to anyone who wants an authentic Berkeley experience.
Spartan retreat in Berkeley... This house is located in a small neighborhood near San Pablo Ave. Close to BART (you can hear the train horns at night.) The neighbors were quiet and friendly and it seemed like an ok neighborhood. The house has a great garden area and deck that has a rural feel. There is trailer and shed on the back of the property but there is plenty of room to enjoy the outdoors. The house is basic, basic. If you are used to some modern comforts then you might consider staying elsewhere. Cons: 1. The house has a greywater system which waters the garden. This is good but makes the tub drain incredibly slow. We were 4 people and had to shower with other people's dirty water because waiting for it to drain would have been too time consuming. 2. We decided vampires lived here because there are only 2 mirrors in the whole house. 3. Several electrical outlets don't work, finding ones to use was tricky, without disrupting others. 4. The internet is wired and can only have one user at a time. We had a lot of work and had to go out of the house for places with wi-fi to use our laptops. 5. The beds are terrible. The semi comfortable one was the futon in the living room, the rest were tantamount to sleeping on wooden slats. We were a group of dancers going through a demanding physical program, we are used to physical discomfort, but the beds shattered our sleep plans. We could have put up with anything else, but this one did us in. Pros: 1. Location. The house is near grocery stores and eateries. We did most of our shopping at Trader Joe's on San Pablo Ave. 2. Quaint house. 3. Eco friendly home 4. Host responds quickly This is a case of you get what you pay for, unless you do like this sort of basic and natural living.
I'm sorry you weren't comfortable here. I have added a latex mattress pad to the main bed to make it softer. The rest of your complaints have not been addressed, but this is the first time I'm hearing complaints on those issues. I believe I was upfront about the lack of WiFi in the Airbnb account.
Orli's house is lovely, in a quiet residential neighborhood, and has a yard with wonderful plantings. Our stay was very comfortable and the vegetarian kitchen was well organized and well supplied. Beds were all comfortable. Orli is ecologically-minded and has an outside drying rack for laundry. It is also admirable that she uses grey water for the garden. Visitors who use internet should inquire about bringing their own cable. Orli is very helpful and responds quickly to emails. We were pleased to stay in her home.
The place felt like home! We love the neighborhood, the spaciousness or the house both inside and out, and my kids loved the toys and books! Would definitely stay again. My husband (the side sleeper) insists I report that the master bed in very firm and best suited for back sleepers. He found all the other beds to be more comfortable. I was fine on my back. Overall a great experience had by all.
