Three bedroom, 1 bath, with Deck

I am a long time rental property owner with many long term rentals but rent Casa Bella short term because the grounds are in my "compound" and I like turn over. When you arrive there is a 30 minute "orientation" to which all ALL guests need to participate. It is important. Problems with vacation guest have generally been with those who did not participate in the orientation. Always try to fly into Oakland International - way easier and faster than SF, which is a good hour drive when traffic is light. I don't do night time check in - so if you are landing late at the airport - it is a good idea to stay the first night at the airport. IMPORTANT: I need information about Guests. When inquiring, please tell who you are and what you do, i.e., in work. Who is with you and how you are related to one another. Where are you coming from and what brings you to Oakland? What will you be doing when here? The more you share about yourselves, the better. Sorry, but I do not deal with 3rd parties such as booking agent or friends who may be looking for you.
Beverly purchased this Apartment in 1990
Why Beverly chose Temescal
Casa Bella is in my personal compound.. My house is separate. I have chickens and geese in my small yard. Inside I have cats and two small dogs. I have other rentals near by that are all unfurnished, yearly leases. I prefer turn over here. Casa Bella is good for short term because of it's great location - everything is right here. From time to time there are events in the Historic Temescal Village - which is one block away. There is one parking space in the parking lot - no trucks. If you have more than one vehicle the second would have to park on the street and which is less safe for cars. However, it is easy to be here without a car. The BART - subway - is 7-10 min walk. Lots of buses and a rental car lot 2 blocks away. Historic Temescal Village with lots of shops and cafes is just one block. This IS a commercial area.
What makes this Apartment unique
Location. Location. Location. Easy by bus to UBC. Very walkable neighborhood with lots of shops and cafes and much to explore. Temescal is considered the "hip" neighborhood of Oakland.

This is a good place to stay. Convenient location
A comfortable place to stay with easy access yet it is safe. I'd stay again.
This is the 2nd time we stayed in Casabella; highly recommended
Reasonable price, clean facilities, and proximity to major BART station are all reasons to recommend this property.
Beverly is very responsive and makes sure everything is in order.
Overall, highly recommended to anyone needing to be in the Bay Area.
Justin and his colleagues are a good group. They stayed here before and returned for a second visit. 5-star. Recommend!!!
Great apartment, clean facilities, good location in Oakland close to SF
I was in town for work for a couple of weeks and wanted an apartment close to SF but not in the city. Beverley's apartment fit my needs exactly - clean, quiet, and close to supermarkets and restaurants. Be sure to follow Beverley's instructions and your stay will be pleasant for sure.
Good in pries an valuer
Beverly was a great host, she gave us plenty of tips to spend the time in the near area. The communication was easy and fast. There is all you need in the flat, good kitchen. There was some to eat too! located near the freeway but not noisy. Good choice if you don't want to pay the high SanFran prices.
Thorsten and his colleagues were easy Guests. They were respectful, following the rules, and left the place in good shape. Recommend.
Temescal is considered "hip" and is the most popular area in Oakland - esp for tourists. Very convenient to pub trans, to UCB, to shops and cafes. Very "walkable".
