  • Great Location!

    "We had a great stay in this beautiful Oakland loft. The loft is so comfortable, with everything you could need. The kitchen was the best part...nicely stocked, with nice appliances. We did not have a car, and it was VERY easy to get around...only a couple of blocks from the BART. The owner was great with communication, and always answered emails quickly. The building and neighbors were very quiet, it did get a bit loud at times because of the Taco Bell drive up that is close, but this is a very urban area, so some noise is to be expected. I would highly recommend this loft for a stay in the Bay area!"

  • 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."

  • Terrific vacation rental

    "We just checked out today after 8 nights over Christmas week. Clean and comfortable. Kitchen is very well equipped -- we cooked a 23 lb. turkey with the fixings and it was delicious. Great location. Walk to the end of Piedmont and check out the old, historic cemetery with views of Oakland and SF. Check out the rose garden on Jean off Grand -- would be spectacular in spring and summer. Kona Club on Piedmont is ton of fun. Lupe has good recommendations for restaurants. Nice artwork in duplex. Needs handrails and be aware that there weren't curtains in the living room in case you are planning to use futon for sleeping."
