I stayed with a group of 5 ladies the weekend of March 23-25th. The house was BEAUTIFUL and such a joy to stay in. We loved cooking meals in the kitchen and enjoying the neighborhood. It was a quick, very walkable jaunt down to Piedmont and so close to the supermarket. The house itself was beautifully appointed and we never felt cramped. Judy was always very prompt in responding anytime I reached out to her. I admit, I did not read about the parking situation well-it's NOT the driveway out front, but around the side through a gate. Overall, a wonderful stay. I would recommend this home to anyone and appreciated Judy's responsiveness.
Thank you Megan , I am glad you enjoyed the home!
Great location, but the house is shabby. If you're looking for luxury, this is not the place.
The house was cozy, but old and shabby in areas. The heater worked great. Location is very convenient to Piedmont Ave, College Ave and Telegraph.
The cleaners need to look up as well as down. Top of the refrigerator was filthy (often a place to store food), cobwebs on the walls.
Some instructions for the house were given in an email, but nothing in the house. We lost power and didn't know where the fuse box was. Found 3 in 1 oil in a random cupboard to fix a very squeaky bed.
Worked well for a girls weekend.
We had a nice 3-night stay in this house with our two young sons (5 and 2 years old). The house isn't updated, but there's a lot of charm in its original layout and decor, and everything functions fine. The main two bedrooms are good-sized, and the third is a tiny room off of the kitchen (it took me a couple minutes to find it), and it was perfectly cozy for our 5-year-old son. One minor complaint is that the mattresses are older and very soft, but overall, we really enjoyed our stay, and we'd recommend this house to others.
The house was terrific, plenty of room to accommodate the 5 adults in our group, and in a nice location. We would have rated it 5 stars except for the nerve of the owner to have the roof replaced during our stay! We were contacted the day before we arrived letting us know that there would be work on the roof and that there would be "very little noise inside the house." We assumed that meant a minor repair or an assessment for future work. She said work would be Thursday and Friday of our three day stay and asked what time in the morning work could start -- we agreed to a 10 am start. The work extended into Saturday and began at 8 am Saturday morning. When work was going on, it was not possible to have a conversation in the house because of the noise. She had no business renting this home during a major repair and accepted our reservation and charged our card before having a conversation with us. We requested a 50% refund. Without further conversation she told us by email that she would refund $100. This is not someone we would do business with again.
Amazing home away from home
This was the perfect place for my family to stay on vacation. The first day we got there we walked down the street to both the coffee shop and the grocery store to caffeinate and prepare for our stay. It is also with in waking distance from a few fun restaurants we tried during our stay.
The house it self was quite comfortable and had all of the accoutrements we needed to make breakfasts in the mornings and hang out together in the evenings around the dining room table or tv for relaxing. It was convenient to have the laundry right there and easy enough to get it done before quiet hours. It was also nice to have the chairs out front to sit in during our sunny and 75 degree vacation.
I emailed Judy a few times and she was always quick to respond and wonderful to work with.
Lovely house in a convenient location.
This is a lovely, old house in a convenient part of Oakland. We had plenty of space for 6 (4 adults 2 children), parking was never a problem compared with other neighborhoods, there is a grocery store and lots of great restaurants in walking distance. The owner was friendly and attentive and we wished we had contacted her with questions more promptly. if you are staying with an elderly person, access through the front of the house includes a sturdy stair case. The kitchen is big and well-equipped. All together a great experience!
Thank you Laura!
a few blocks to Mountain View Cemetery , a great place to walk with lots of Oakland history. Oakland has a wonderful museum and zoo. Please see links Blue Bottle Cafe just a block away!
