This property was very comfortable, private and quite. In a nice neighborhood and close to a major highway. The owners were welcoming and easy to get in touch with if necessary. We'll be back!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for 6 nights with our 14 year old grandson. The apartment was an ideal situation as our grandson was able to have his own bedroom with a TV in it. Chris & Lea were fantastic hosts and welcomed us from the very start with a plate of homemade quesadillas (Yum!) Lea continued to spoil us as the week went on. Chris was always available and very helpful with info about how to move about the city and which sights to see. The unit was clean, nicely decorated, with VERY comfortable beds. The kitchen and bathroom were well-stocked with everything that we needed. The neighborhood was safe and plenty of room to park in front of the house. The unit is centrally located, & we were never in the car for much more than 1 hour at a time. We traveled as far south as San Jose, north to Sonoma, and of course across the bridge into San Francisco. I highly recommend renting this unit over a hotel due to the personal touch you will receive.

Better than expected!

  • 5 of 5

My business partner and I were seeking a place that was a home away from home for a week of intensive meetings all over the Bay area. Chris and Lea's place was perfect! Everything you can imagine in a home and great hosts to add to the experience. There was enough food in the fridge to get us started until we got to a grocery store and Nespresso capsules to satisfy my European coffee needs! The beds were extremely comfortable and the bathroom fully stocked in case you forget your personal supplies. We had a car so can not speak to the convenience of the mass transit system. The grocery store is not far away and we went into town to use the laundry facilities.

I would highly recommend this property and these owners if you are looking for a place to stay in the Bay Area outside of the expensive hotels and crowded city.

Chris and leah were great hosts, very welcoming and we enjoyed our stay. Make sure you are aware that there is no laundry and dishwasher in the unit - which is the reason I did not give 5/5 rating otherwise I am sure you will have excellent experience.

Excellent area, property and hosts

  • 5 of 5

We had the privilege of staying at the house of Chris and lea in June and part of July. When we first saw the house, we noticed that it is located in a nice area, safe, clean and quiet. We were welcomed from the beginning by Chris and Lea, and we from day one knew how these kind people are generous, caring, and warm. Their generous hospitality is overwhelming. We were later lucky enough to have the chance to really get to know them closely and see more of their good unique qualities, we felt as we were within our own family.

We enjoyed a couple of evening together with Chris and Lea and got the chance to taste and exchange food of different cousins

Thanks Chris and Lea


Omar and Family

Owner's Response: Omar and his family were wonderful guest and great people. One of the most rewarding parts of being a host is experiencing other cultures from all over the world. Although Omars family is from half way across the globe, we learned they share many of the same values. They are very family oriented. Very considerate and very appreciative. I am confident we will meet them again in the future and they are always welcome here.

Roomy and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was very enjoyable. The property was very clean and well stocked with basic items. Every creature comfort you can think of was supplied, right down to beach towels, flip flops, and umbrellas! Chris was very helpful and accommodating. I especially like that he listed nearby businesses that a traveler might need (i.e. Safeway-food, laundromat, restaurants). Definitely pleased with his recommendations. I would definitely consider renting this place again when I go back to Oakland, even though the Wi-Fi signal in the lower level was a little sketchy. Worked beautifully in the bedroom, not so good for us in the living area. Also, the approach to the rental from the street is a little tough to navigate. However, the Wi-Fi is the only reason we did not give this rental 5 stars. Chris, thanks for a great place to hang our hat while visiting our daughter.
