  • Lea Maynard - Pickering, Ontario

    "My husband and I stayed at this VRBO June 30 to July 7. The only word that I can use to describe our experience is amazing. The pictures do not do justice to how comfortable and at home we felt while here. The added bonus of the use of the backyard with hot tub and fire pit area as well as the wonderful balcony complete with comfy chairs and the view of San Francisco. On July 4th the firework displays from the balcony, outstanding. Our California friends that joined us were delighted to be staying in such a lovely home. If you are planning a trip to Oakland or the San Francisco area I would definitely recommend that you stay here."

  • Great choice and great location

    "The unit is well maintained and spacious. The host is really great and willing to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. We unfortunately had to change our plans because of our sick 2 year old, and the owner was super accommodating. The location is great. There are some good restaurants, a coffee place, a giant park, and the BART within walking distance. The ride to SF is only 15 minutes on the BART. We are really happy that we chose to stay here instead of a hotel. I would definitely stay here again and I have already recommended a friend to stay there."

  • Beautiful, immaculate, peaceful, accommodating cottage in a great location!!!

    "My husband and I were visiting the Oakland/Bay area for a wedding and we stayed in this Rockridge/Berkeley cottage. We could not be more happy that we stayed there for our week in California. The cottage is even more beautiful than the pictures. The cottage is immaculate and has everything you could possibly need. It is in walking distance to Bart and so many shops, restaurants and even a Trader Joe's. The owners made everything very easy. If we are in the area again, we will definitely stay there again. Thank you for our wonderful week at the cottage!!!!"
