A STAY NEAR SAN FRANCISCO
COMFY/COZY SINGLE ROOM
NEWSFLASH: We've removed the water constrictor from the shower head and the water pressure is much approved, it's not a green move, but it was the correct thing to do.
This home was completed in February, 2008. It is all new construction with lots of green improvements. You'll be greeted with a tour of the home and a tutorial on how to use our keyless entry system. In your room you’ll find maps and guidebooks of the area.
Sleep comfortably with a high quality mattress, new comforter and pillows, extra blankets and throws/quilts. This is a quiet family neighborhood with plenty of street parking.
Enjoy house privileges and use of all of our equipment and supplies, including:
-the house is not heated during the summer and when the heat is on during the day it's never set above 68, so if you need it warmer, please wear a sweater.
- Hall bath with extra large shower, hair dryer, plush bath and hand towels, extra soap, shampoo, and conditioner. Forget to pack; just ask, we might have extras.
- A living room with parlor grand piano, comfortable seating.
- A spacious dining room with seating for 10. The French doors open up to a large back porch.
- A well-organized, fully equipped kitchen with a Viking 6 burner oven/stove, fridge, stainless steel pots and pans, utensils, serving dishes, wine glasses & corkscrews, a blender & food processor, with an extra large island for food prep. We don’t drink coffee, but Starbucks and Peet’s are .5 mile away. Please leave the kitchen as clean as you found it. Half a shelf in the fridge can be used by you.
- A sunny front deck with seating for enjoying the neighborhood, some quiet time or reading a book.
- A laundry room with front loading washing machine and dryer, please no loads before 9am or after 9pm
THE COMFY SINGLE ROOM is located on the 1st floor of the house. It is 7X8 ft room with a antique twin bedframe, an armoire and closet space. Brand new pillows and comforters.
The tankless water heater saves energy by not storing 30-50 gallons of hot water, but instantly heating it and sending it to you (takes about 30sec to flush out the cold water, but on the upside is that you never run out of hot water while showering). We support recycling and composting and will happily explain how it works.
This quiet neighborhood with tree-lined streets makes it a pleasure to walk to nearby shops and walking paths (ask about them). The house is located just 2 1/2 blocks from Solano Ave where there is plenty of retail shopping, groceries, restaurants etc. It’s also short walk to El Cerrito Shopping Center and a mere 3 miles to CAL (University of California, Berkeley). You may also want to explore Tilden Park, the Gourmet Ghetto, or the Berkeley Marina.
El Cerrito Plaza BART is .8 miles away. We are a 20-30 minute BART trip to downtown San Francisco. For those renting a car, there is plenty of street parking.
Check-in is anytime after 3 pm; late-night check-ins are fine. With prior arrangement, we may be able to accommodate early drop off of luggage. At check-in, we will meet you, explain how the keyless entry system works, tour the bathroom and learn about our tankless water system and show you to your room.

If allergies are a concern, I should warn that we have two indoor/outdoor cats.
Bobbi and her husband were excellent hosts. The bed and accommodations were comfortable and pleasing. Great shower and and facilities as well. Lovely welcoming feeling with a quiet and familial atmosphere. Graciously offered an umbrella as it rained the entire time. I recommend their lodging and amenities to potential guests.
Bobbi and her family were excellent, considerate hosts. My room was very comfortable, with a desk, a chair, a trash can and full closet. The spotless bathroom smelled fresh, and Bobbi had been kind enough to provide some convenient "extras" - floss, toothbrush, body wash, etc. - in case I needed them.
Bobbi and her family were kind and friendly, and made sure I had what I needed. I would definitely stay with them again, without a doubt.
Bobbi and Cory are the best host that I can ever ask for! When I first arrive, Bobbi drove me around the neighbourhood to help me familiarise and get my administrative stuff sorted. The location is conveniently located near the El Cerrito Plaza and also 15 mins walk from the BART. It is a safe and quiet neighbourhood. The room has a comfortable bed with extra blankets to keep you warm, and also travel guides and maps to explore the city. There is a big personal bathroom with toiletries in case you forgot to bring, and the shower pressure is just nice for a hot bath. The kitchen is available and clean to use, and they even provide labels for your food.
I'm very grateful and appreciative for the personal touch that Bobbi and Cory provides: your mails will be received and placed at your desk at the end of the day, Cory offered his help to put together my bike, Bobbi offered her umbrella on a rainy day even before I could ask, they'll allow you to check in your baggages early, and they even allow me to leave my luggages with them when I had to temporarily shift to another location! They will provide you with lots of useful information and recommendations if you have any question or problem. Bobbi and Cory are both very understanding, caring and considerate for your needs as a visitor, as they have so much hosting experiences with the number of guests they receive each year. Hence you will enjoy a homely five star experience in an affordable accommodation. I fully recommend that you stay with Bobbi and her family while you are in the city - I'm confident you will truly enjoy the experience like I did :)
Yes I would recommend this place to others.
Very comfortable stay!
Bobbi and her family were most gracious hosts and located so conveniently to the BART station and other amenities that I didn't even need a car. This was my first experience with Airbnb and I couldn't have asked for a smoother visit, or better hosts.
Bobbi and Cory were great hosts, the house is just as shown - beautiful with many green features and clean. It is located in a very nice neighborhood, a pleasant walk to Solano and accessible to transit. I would definitely stay here again!
The Zechars are great hosts. I always enjoy staying with them. Thanks!
The room is very comfortable and Bobby is an excellent host. I would definitely come back.
Bobbi was a good host who was very flexible about arrival times and coming and going in and out of the house. Street parking is easily available and the cats are friendly! I would stay here again.
Bobbi was very nice, her family was nice, everything was very well organized and clean. Think of it as staying at a nice Marriott. Nice. I recommend staying there, and I will stay there again if I come back for business and there is space.
