Perfect accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

This was such a perfect accommodation for my husband and I, and my mom -- probably the best home away stay we've ever had at a rental. Very comfortable, nicely furnished, spotless, and with all the amenities we would need. Will definitely book this place again in the future.

excellent accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Our one week stay was delightful.

The house was in a terrific location. Quiet street. Parking easy in the driveway. Very clean and cheerful.

The owner was very accommodating.

The kitchen well stocked.

The bedrooms very comfortable.

We highly recommend this vacation rental and would rent again.

Thank you to the owner.

Beautiful home that met expectations

  • 4 of 5

3 colleagues and I stayed in this charming home for 3 nights for a local conference we were attending in the area. It definitely met expectations--it was very clean and comfortable, and definitely had a warm, "homey" feel to it. The neighborhood was really quiet and conveniently located in walking distance to some area shops and restaurants (Burma Superstar is a MUST!) which we took full advantage of every night. The entire process for staying here was smooth and easy to understand. The only criticism I can offer is the lack of air condition (it was really hot on one of the days we were there and the open door and windows didn't do much to cool it down), and the extremely uncomfortable futon bed in the front guest room (the bed was so uncomfortable that 2 of us ended up sharing the bed in the master bedroom). You should also be 'ware of the additional fee charged for more than 2 guests--that caught us a little off guard. Above all though, I highly recommend this place and would certainly stay there again myself if I'm ever in the Oakland area.

Completely as advertised!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay visiting our children and grandchildren. With the sensational weather, we spent quite a bit of time in the wonderful outdoor space, and a great Sunday a.m. at the Farmer's Market a block and a half away. I walked to Hudson Bay Cafe every morning for coffee. We had family dinner around the large dining table; my two year old granddaughter claimed the high chair, which was a great bonus. The kitchen is great, with lots of lovely dishes and pots/pans, etc. We slept so well; the bedding is comfy and it was absolutely silent! So different from SF! After we left my granddaughter said she wanted to go back to my house! I can't wait to return so she can! Katie is great too.

A Lovely Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for a long weekend with our two-year old twin grandsons and their mom and dad so we could be near our Oakland son and his family. Six of us slept at the house, but often all ten of us were on hand for meals or as a starting point for walks to the farmer's market and the nearby playgrounds. The house was perfect. The fully enclosed backyard and the home's interior were completely safe for the little ones and there was plenty of room for all of us to hang out. I especially appreciated Katie's thoughtfulness in providing an extra Pak N Play and high chair. Other highlights: fantastically clean house; lots of extra towels; bright interior; an amazingly equipped kitchen--all the pots and pans, dishes, glasses, and cutlery you could possibly need; and high-end appliances in perfect working order. All in all a great property in a terrific location. Thank you Katie.
