  • Quiet, Comfortable, Convenient and Spectacular

    "Our reactions upon entering and experiencing this wonderful accommodation could have been filmed for HGTV, --lots of OMGs, come see this, way cool, amazing.... as we explored the interior and exterior of Fairbairn Oasis. You'll love the exterior hardscape and landscape designs---there are several outdoor living spaces, each created with its own theme and mood. My 3 year nephew loved picking from the apple tree and my sister and I enjoyed the hot tub. I also want to thank the owner Dee for the great binder she has put together, with info about the area, transportation, sights to see, locations of groceries, drug stores, restaurants, etc. as well as details about the apartment. We couldn't wait to get "home" each evening to enjoy the quiet comfort and experience the breathtaking views of the SF skyline. I hope that we will have the good fortune of staying here again in the near future."

  • Loved Rockridge!

    "We highly recommend this property. It is a perfect retreat after a day of touring and enjoying the Bay area. It is conveniently located close to the Bart. Katie makes sure that the house is comfortable, well stocked, and ready for you. This is one of our favorite VRBO properties."

  • Love this place!

    "This is a fantastic find! The place is well-stocked for short-and long-term stays, cute as can be, in a quiet building and quiet neighborhood, and within easy walking distance of restaurants, shopping, Piedmont grocery store, Peet's Coffee, and the Oakland rose garden. The owner is very responsive. It's also very easy to get on the highway from the unit, and be in San Francisco in less than 30 minutes (at the right time of day). Bus transportation is very convenient, with a bus stop a little more than a block away that takes you to downtown Oakland and the 19th Street BART station. It's great for one or two people and for working trips. I would absolutely stay here again. Thanks!!"

  • 6TH Stay from East Coast

    "Returned once again to visit nearby family & stay @ our "home away from home". As always, Lori & Craig had everything ready for us upon arrival. It is always such a delight to return. It was an easy commute on the BART to the Oakland ball field to see a major A's game, & the BART to San Francisco for some great food & an Opera in the park. Plenty of very good restaurants & shopping in the vicinity."
