Isn't Katherine the sweetest? She was the best airbnb host we've ever had. First of all, as we wanted to find a place for a few months during an internship in Bay area, we wanted to make sure the place is good. So, we contacted Katherine if we can come and see her place beforehand; and she kindly agreed. We also ended up arriving one night sooner, and Katherine was flexible to arrange that for us. And she even asked us what we would need in the morning for breakfast as we'd arrive late night. She got us delicious cereals, milk, coffee, yogurt, fruits, and many other stuff; so we had an amazing breakfast after a long trip. Katherine was also very accessible if we had any issues or questions.
And that was not only the host that was amazing. We LOVED the neighborhood, it's clean, beautiful, and very safe. َAnd we got the best fruits we ever had in the U.S. from the local store called Monterey Market. It's less than 10 mins walk from the place and everything tastes so naturally, and not much expensive. You should definitely try it!
The apartment itself was well-equipped with all the possible amenities we might need. The only thing that you might want to consider is that as most of the Berkeley houses are quite old, the floors/ceilings are not that thin. So, you would hear some noises from the upstairs, particularly walking noises, which didn't bother us much. Other than this, I think the place was great, and we had an amazing stay here :)
