      We spent three weeks at Mc Gee House in August 2012 to drop our son at Berkeley University. While we had booked to stay at hotels we changed our bookings to McGee house which was fortunately available during the exact dates we required. McGee house turned out to be better than what we anticipated through pictures on the website. It is located in a peaceful neighborhood and yet it was a short walk from convenience shopping, public transport and most importantly for us from the University. The house is well maintained, clean and well equipped to run day to day life. All in all it worked out like home away from home and we would take the option to stay there during our subsequent visits compared any five star hotel.
      We spent a great week at this cozy vacation property. It is far enough from the busy main streets to be quiet and relaxing, but close enough not to be isolated. The house itself is exactly as advertised, clean and well-equipped with almost all the items we would have at home. Mark has provided a printed FAQ for everything - parking, instruction manuals, garbage/recycling, so I never needed to call him for any questions. Beds are comfy, more than enough pillows to suit us. The bathroom is a tight squeeze, but I guess that is typical of Berkeley; anyway, it was clean and we liked the shower. Kitchen was extremely well-equipped, and Mark was thoughtful enough to even leave basic groceries. On the infotainment front, Google TV with a Netflix/Amazon subscription was a godsend on the couple of rainy evenings during our stay. WiFi with DSL internet speed was accessible from anywhere in the house. In short, we are glad we chose this rental instead of a hotel. Our daughter is a freshman at UC Berkeley, so I foresee us staying here at least a few more times.
      I was looking for the perfect place for my parents who were visiting from Paris, France when i found the house on McGee. I (neither my parents) were disappointed. the house on Mcgee is THE place you want to have for relatives you care about that are visiting the region. Thank you Mark! Michael Mrejen
      We had a great stay this week at the McGee House! The house is comfortable and quaint, and had everything we needed for our stay! The kitchen was well stocked, the beds were comfortable and we loved having the washer/dryer for our use (especially with two young kids). The house is very centrally located, close to restaurants, UC Berkeley, etc. We even walked to Trader Joes! I would not hesitate to recommend the McGee House to anyone looking for a pleasant alternative to a hotel when visiting Berkeley.
      Absolutely top-notch rental. Very clean with nice furnishings, bed linens, 2 bedrooms with doors and super clean and modern bath with great shower head. Owner left instruction manual for everything in house including appliances (wish all owners did this) which makes settling in easier. Great walkable location for cafes, markets and safe at night. Small but immaculate backyard with patio and BBQ, perfect for warm weather. My husband and I felt at home and safe.
      Next time I'm in the Berkeley area I hope the McGee House will again be available. The house is clean and bright, convenient, on a quiet street, and just lovely. Mark, the owner, made sure we had everything we needed. My very favorite spot was the rocking chair on the front porch, where I read and watched the world early each morning, but there is also a cozy deck and garden area in back. The kitchen is well-stocked. Restaurants are just a few blocks away, and the walking is easy. McGee House is perfect!
      I spent more than 2 weeks at the McGee house over the Christmas holidays and found it an excellent and comfortable place to stay while in the Bay Area. The location is convenient and quiet; it's easy walking distance to the BART station yet in a pleasant residential neighborhood. The house is very well kept and has everything you need for a short stay. The owner is responsive and helpful. I'll definitely be back!
      We spent wonderful four months in the McGee House and it was the perfect place for us. Our two little kids could safely roam around in the garden. The tree-lined street is very quiet and we meet great people and other kids. BART is a 10 minutes walk and Berkeley is the perfect bicycle city. And don't miss Saturday's Farmers market close by. Mark was swift in answering the few requests. The house is in good shape and we had just enough space for the four of us, even accommodating some guests was still possible. We will keep the McGee House and the McGee Avenue in very good memories and definitely would recommend it also for longer stays over any boring corporate furnished soulless apartment.
      We spent 5 days at the McGee house in late June and the accomodations were perfect. The bedrooms were comfortable, the kitchen was well equipped, everything worked and it was especially great to have a washer and dryer available. We have family living in Berekely so the location was great. I hope we will be able to do this again in the near future. Mark Foy was a pleasure to deal with. Carol - Connecticut
