Guestbook comments from the owner

What could be better than a vacation going exactly as planned? One that that turns out even better, that’s what. We may travel for the sites and scenery, but it is the people we meet that we remember the longest. Don’t get me wrong San Leandro is a pleasant community of friendly people, convenient for shopping and transportation, and where I ate the best hamburger (at Boulevard Burgers, editor's note) in my life, but kinder, more generous, more memorable people than the owners you are unlikely to meet anywhere. We expected a clean, comfortable place to stay; what we got was that, and friends for life. They welcomed us into their home and their hearts.

If you are looking for that proverbial home away from home, rest assured you will find it with these people. I can’t wait to go back!

Simple But Nice East Bay Area Studio Apartment
average rating of 5.0 based on 4 reviews


  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this studio for the entire holiday season of 2013. We were residents of the East Bay for decades and now relocated overseas. We needed a place for a lengthy stay and this studio was the perfect place for us, it bridges safety with convenience. It is a quaint place, large for a studio, private and close to everything; the neighborhood is very secure and surrounded by desirable homes. A Safeway store is nearby and everything else you may need. Bart terminal - key to transportation to everywhere in the Bay Area is about a mile away. City buses are walking distance and off-street parking is never a problem here. San Leandro has plenty of eateries; boasting international cuisines and you can stroll to many of them from this place. The studio offers total privacy and comfort; (we often cared for our visiting granddaughter and watched her learn her first baby steps here!), it is complete with all appliances and plenty of closet space. It offers a sunny backyard or you can take safe morning walks and admire well-maintained lawns.

The lovely studio was immaculate and presented well. Patricia was always quick and readily available to lend her assistance when needed. We will not hesitate to stay in this rental place again. We can truly recommend the studio for short or longer stays in the Bay Area. I honestly rate this studio five stars in Convenience, Safety and Proximity!

I stayed in Patricia's studio for two nights while attending a nearby conference. She was most welcoming and accommodating and the studio was perfect: clean, quiet, safe and comfortable. I highly recommend it!
