I am a long time rental property owner with many long term rentals and have rent Casa Bella short term because the grounds are co-mingled with my home. When you arrive there is a 30 minute "orientation" to which ALL guests should participate. It is important. Problems with vacation guest have generally been with those who did not participate in the orientation. I am not open to late night arrivals. If you are flying in late, it is best to stay at the airport the first night. Always try to fly into Oakland International, if you can because it is way easier and faster than SF Intern'l. IMPORTANT: I need information about Guests. I do not book Guests who are not forthcomings. 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 yo coming from and what brings you to Oakland? What will you be doing when here? The more you share about yourselves, the better.
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 year. Inside I have cats and two small dogs. I have other rentals near by that are yearly leases. 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. If you have more than one vehicle the second would have to park on the street and it will be less safe due to high car break-ins in SF and Oakland. 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. This apartment has great sun and a private deck. Even tho it is a 6-unit building, this apartment is pretty private. You may see others coming and going. There is an off-street parking space for one car (no trucks). The area has great walk-ability rating. Something over 85%. Lots of interesting cafes and shops just 1 block away.

Had everything I needed!
The apartment had a super location - short walk to BART and a block away from amazing restaurants, coffee shops, Walgreens, as well as the busline on Telegraph! I loved the deck, especially as the sun set over the trees. The apartment had everything I was looking for - comfortable bed, excellent kitchen and bathroom. I will certainly hope to stay there again! Beverly was very available and wanted to make sure I had everything I needed.
Patricia was a lovely Guest. Recommend!!!!
Cute, basic accomodation
The property is very well located and within easy walking distance of many amenities. It's an older building so a little dusty and stuffy but still charming.
Surprised that Guest found the apartment "dusty and stuffy" since it was thoroughly cleaned and scrubbed and aired out by expensive service prior to their check-in. Was disappointed to find a lot of dried up cooked rice in the sink and drain - washed off but communicated disrespect. Alas.
Historic Temescal has many shops and cafes - starts 1 block form building
