The neighbourhood is great and ben was super accommodating. It's about a 15 minute walk from the BART (train), but easy to reach. The place itself is super rad and in a nice neighbourhood. It's also close to the lake (which is beautiful) and a nice strip of restaurants nearby to…

Response from Ben:
I appreciate Amanda's sensitivity to cleanliness, but have to disagree with her assessment of my bathroom. In my humble opinion, there must be a reason not one guest has complained about it in the past. I also find it a bit insincere that she never once brought up the issue with me before she left, via conversation or messaging, and then requested a full refund through the app and left a pretty scathing public review. All that being said, I did a deep clean of the shower and requested that the caulking be fixed. I keep my place clean and my past reviews reflect that. Happen to send photos for future interested guests.
