  • STR

    "Having used VRBO - both domestic and international - for over a decade, if there is a better-appointed site than Lori and Craig’s, I haven’t found it! The flat is in a lovely setting with beautiful gardens and outdoor seating areas and with views of the SF Bay in the far distance. The décor of the flat is exceptionally warm and inviting, with antiques and artwork that most would find only in owners’ private quarters. Lori and Craig have provided new meaning to the term, “Home away from home.” After an extended stay from October to December, I returned to the East Coast with wonderful memories and new friends for life. The thoughtfulness they extend to their guests is a model for the industry. It is an honor to know them and to have had the opportunity to stay in their exquisite flat."

  • Perfection

    "Our daughter-in-law arranged for our stay at this lovely cottage and it was absolutely perfect. The architect thought of everything you might need with regard to space and the owners finished with everything you might need to feel at home. The property was immaculate when we arrived and I was completely at ease immediately. There is lots of privacy and a lovely backyard to enjoy the "real joy" of California. I would recommend this property for everyone!"

  • Great Value Near Lake Merritt

    "We were in town to visit our daughter and wanted to be as near to her as possible. This place worked out well for our needs. In the back of an older home, it has a private entrance. The space was more than adequate with a small, well-stocked kitchen, a very comfortable bed and a nice bath. All was clean. Parking is a challenge in this area but the owner is happy to work with you. The area is nice and an easy walk to lovely Lake Merritt. My only suggestion is that the back screen door be fixed as it does not stay closed and the inside door will only stay shut when the deadbolt is engaged. Otherwise this is a great value for the money and a chance to explore Oakland which has a lot to offer."

  • Top comfort + views!

    "I live in the neighborhood and just rented Claudine's place for my out of town family (6 people), who came in for a wedding and stayed a week. It was spacious, well equipped, comfortable and all on one level with no steps, which was perfect for my parents who are in their 80s. Lots of space to gather as a family group and also to have separate time. The views are unbeatable, especially from the lovely deck with cozy table. The decor is more than you would expect from a rental, so I would not really recommend this for families with young children. Everyone else, I am recommending it to highly!"
