Recent Oakland reviews

  • Gorgeous and amazing place!

    "I was lucky enough to stay here for over a month and had an amazing time. The amenities of the place are incredible, the views are gorgeous and the owners are very friendly and helpful. The pool and hot tub area is really comfortable, with nice chairs, heat lamps and speakers. This place is a hidden gem. It was really amazing to be in the Bay Area while also in this amazing hideaway. It is also really close to Redwood Regional Park, which has some great trails for hikers and bikers. I would highly recommend staying here."

  • Nice house, family friendly neighborhood

    "Our stay in the bungalow was very good! Everything was very clean and the house is so neat and cute! We decided to stay in Oakland to visit San Francisco and surrounding areas because of the more attractive prices. It is important to note that this house is in a very charming and safe neighborhood, pretty close to Berkeley University. Michelle, the house owner, is awesome! Very quick to respond all questions that I had! Overall, 5 stars!"

  • 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."

  • 1850 sf Cottage!

    "This charming hideaway, is very large and killer views! You have your own private yard with view, or enjoy the common pool area. Giant trees and mature landscape making you feel like you are part of the park adjacent! Some very good hiking and mountain bike trails (all degrees of difficulty), are a short drive one direction or about a mile walk the other direction . Randy and Sue could not be nicer, and the dogs are cool and respect your space. We enjoyed a week at Thanksgiving and spent 3 days here over Easter! Perfect weather both times. Only downside is small kitchen but the peaceful setting and beauty make up for any negatives! I am a fireplace guy, and this place has two of them. Plenty of wood!"
