Comfort & Luxury in an Authentic Berkeley Home
This was the perfect home for us while visiting family nearby (we are a couple with 6-year-old and one-year-old.) Neighborhood felt quiet, but easy to walk to coffee shops and restaurants.
Dugger welcomed us so warmly and gave us a quick tour of his wonderful place. There is a pack n play as well as many games and toys, which made things so easy with the baby. Also, everything being on one level was a plus, as our little on has not yet mastered stairs.
The house is set back from the street with a lovely garden/patio in front. There is another house at the front of the property but I didn't see the renters at all during our stay and everything felt quite private.
I am a Berkeley native and have stayed in many Airbnb's in the Bay Area. Mold is a common problem in SF and Berkeley due to the nightly fog and general dampness. This is the first home I've been in that didn't have a slightest tinge mustiness or mold smell.
I would book Dugger's place again without hesitation.
Home Away From Home
Duggar was an amazing host and the house was super cozy, roomy, and even better than we imagined. The outdoor area is a great spot to hangout, the kitchen handled three of us cooking and chatting, and the bathroom products were bliss;)
So glad you enjoyed your stay, kitchen, amenities and garden. I invite you back anytime you like. Erica and her group are the type of guests that make the VRBO community such a joy to host and I recommend them to all hosts.
Nice house in a quiet neighborhood
This three bedroom house was perfect for our group of five family members. It was very clean and had everything we needed for our four-night stay in Berkeley. Finding on-street parking was never a problem. Thank you Dugger for being a great host.
Sharif and his family are the guests a host hope for. Prior to their stay they communicated clearly. They were timely and kind. My home was treated with care. I welcome them back anytime and recommend them to all hosts. Thanks for being my guest Sharif and take good care, Dugger
We enjoyed our stay. The home is comfortable and Duggar is a great host.
Dream guests, I recommend them to all hosts.
Amazing, quiet, beautiful retreat in Berkeley
My family had a great little stay at Dugger's place. It is well appointed, clean, and tucked away off the street. The outdoor area is lovely and the indoor space is beautifully decorated and colorful. Dugger is a helpful, kind, and thoughtful host. Highly recommended!
The ultimate guests! These exceptional guests are the guests you want for every one of your stays. They took care of my home as if it were their own. Thank you for being such wonderful guests.
A group of us stayed here and the house was awesome for 6 people. Everyone was super comfortable and the location was perfect. We didn't realize that there is a strict no smoking/vaping policy for the property and that was a bit of a bummer for a few in our group that partake. Homemade Cafe on the corner was a fantastic breakfast spot to have within walking distance too.
So glad my home was comfortable and the location worked well.
We make it a point to post "no smoking or vaping of any kind" 3 times before each guest arrives to avoid confusion or disappointment. Once in the description of my VRBO, 2nd in my thank you for booking message and 3rd in my check-in details message. We will continue to post the rule in several places to avoid confusion in the future.
We do not allow smoking, vaping or pets to maintain a clean and safe space for guests with allergies, sensitivity, or young children. Smoking, vaping and animal fur all have residue that remains and affects subsequent guests.
Our goal is to ensure the most comfortable and clean stay for every guest who enters our space.
