Perfect location, really close to downtown. People in the house are great, and you can definitely enjoy the garden, eating outside or just relaxing in the shade of the big sequoia! Bernt is a great host. He has a lot to do, but he cares about the people living in the houses.

Bernt is a great guy! Very intelligent and fun to hang out with. The place was very convenient, and close to everything you would need in Berkeley.

Another great stay at Bernt's place. Perfect spot for a student/visiting researcher looking for short-term housing. Close to campus, quiet, clean, and friendly housemates. Bernt is a great host and very helpful.
