This is private cozy in law unit with its own private entrance, surrounded with natural light. Place includes big shared backyard where you can relax and enjoy the view, make BBQ or just unwind by a big window facing the great views of the San Francisco Bay and San Mateo Bridge.

Great place away from everything

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here with the family for New Years. The owners are great, kids loved the dogs and the scenery looking out is a beautiful site. Public transit is a 5 minute drive and hiking trails are near as well.

Great Property!

  • 4 of 5

Loved the location of the property. Owners were very kind and gave us our privacy, even though they live in the front house. Tried re-booking over X-mas, but the property was already booked. Will reach out again in the near future. Even though the accommodations are basic, the property is clean and comfortable.

Neat and clean but difficult for persons with mobility problems.

  • 3 of 5

My wife and I plus our adult daughter stayed here five nights while visiting our son and his family, who live in Castro Valley. My wife has Parkinson's and has mobility issues. This mother-in-law unit is located on the lower level of a house located on a hillside. Great views, but numerous stairs from the street down and around the house to access the unit and only partially lite. The unit has two bedrooms, one with a studio couch. Stairs from the Kitchen to the studio bedroom and then a couple more steps up into the other bedroom/bathroom.

The kitchen was sparsely equipped. Only a few utensils (no spatula) one skillet, one pot, no kitchen towels (paper towels only). One bath towel, one face towel and one washcloth per person. We were told to ask if we needed anything, but in our previous experiences with HomeAway stays, we've always found a linen closet with extra sheets and towels in case we needed them.

The only chairs (4) were around the kitchen table. (Sorry, there was a chair in the bedroom.)

No television to catch the morning or evening newscasts. Fortunately, we spent most of days with our family at their home or touring, so the sparseness of this unit was not a huge inconvenience. However, I do believe that it was not fairly described in the listing.

Wonderful in law!

  • 5 of 5

The owners are as nice as they are willing to make your stay work.

The in law is spacious, comfy, feels like home. Full kitchen. Comfortable bed.

Great window seat with a view of the bay. Easy access to freeway, 3 minutes!

It's quiet and looks on to the garden. I loved it and would stay again.

It was nice to have a washer and dryer in the apartment and the location was good. Short drive to the BART to go into the city. Olga and Vlad and Katerina are very accommodating to their guests...very pleasurable stay.

A lovely weekend in a cozy spot.

  • 5 of 5

We needed a quiet spot to do some planning for the year ahead, and this little apartment was just the ticket. Nice big table to spread out our work, no TV or stereo to distract, and just enough kitchen equipment to prepare a few spartan meals. The owners were friendly and everything was very tidy and clean.
