Our second time staying at this home and we probably will be back!

Clean, well equipped home. AC in the rooms was great because of a heat wave.

Charming bungalow in Oakmore

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, and our youngest son and his wife, thoroughly enjoyed our week-long stay in this very beautiful bungalow while visiting our second son and his family in Oakland after the Christmas holidays. It was large enough to comfortably accommodate everybody around the dining room table for birthday and New Years celebrations, a wonderful well-supplied kitchen for the meal preparation, and a gorgeous living room for puzzle solvers to enjoy their morning coffee. Its walking distance to Dimond Park allowed us all to enjoy morning runs/walks before heading out for the day. We also had access to the laundry room and backyard garden.

The house was great, just a little old and truly not ADA accessible. The house would be great for middle aged or non-handicap travelers that want to just get away and relax, to many stairs for eldery or full figure people.

It provided a real home away from home for three of us.

  • 5 of 5

This was a very convenient location for us just 10 minutes from our daughter's house in Montclair. It's a lovely home in a quiet, beautifully landscaped residential neighborhood. It's easily reached from the airport, and the dedicated driveway parking was a real plus! The home is large & spacious, well-designed with the bedrooms & bathrooms away from the other rooms. The kitchen was well equipped and easy to use. We loved having the gorgeous secluded garden to ourselves! We'll definitely recommend it to friends & relatives who visit from afar.
