Recent Oakland reviews

  • This living space makes a good first impression, and it keeps getting better.

    "The view overlooks the Oakland skyline toward the bay, with the East Bay Bridge and San Francisco in the distance. The owner thoughtfully provided binoculars. The open concept design lets you see this view from the moment you let yourself in at the opposite end of the apartment. The entire apartment is tastefully decorated. The full kitchen has everything you need to make meals for a small group. The apartment is the whole top floor, and is well isolated from the lower; we never had to worry about disturbing others. The beds in both bedrooms are comfy and spacious. The closets and dressers provided plenty of room for clothing. The bathroom is attractively designed, functional, and even has a full size clothes washer and dryer tucked into the closet. I liked the modern door handles. Opposite the bathroom is a closet full of linens and supplies. Each bedroom and the living room has a large flat-screen TV with plenty of programming. Navigating the living room TV input selections is a bit complicated, but I was able to figure it out with the help of instructions in the apartment dwellers' guide that had been emailed to us before the trip. (Don't forget to print it out and bring it.) There is an iron and ironing board in the front closet, and a high chair in the front bedroom closet. The deck is large and functional, with furniture and a large grill. It overlooks a large, attractive and well-maintained backyard. We didn't have time to try out the backyard hot tub. Overall, we had a wonderful week in this place."

  • Just as we remembered from our first stay!

    "5 years since our first stay here in Gillians "flat", just as we remembered it, the same warm welcome, clean spacious rooms and of course the spectacular view over SF bay and Golden Gate Bridge. Very comfortable for 2 couples with 2 separate en-suite bedrooms, 2 living rooms, a laundry room, workable kitchen, separate "office space" and off-street safe parking right outside the house. You definitely need a car here because all is uphill, though short distances to nearby food stores, Berkely and the BART-train station into SF. Highly recommended to anyone wanting a relaxing non-hotell stay in the Bay-area. Thanks Gillian, we give you 10 out of 10 and hope to be back for a third visit sometime in the future!

  • Favorite place to stay in the Bay Area

    "This is a wonderful apartment. It is sparkling clean, artistically furnished, and the owners are so easy and accommodating. My husband and I have stayed in this rental once before, and always check to see if it is available when we want to return to the SF Bay area. It usually is not, sad to say, and that is unsurprising, given the value, comfort and beauty of the apartment and surrounding area. To mention just a few things: the apartment is well soundproofed, so that you cannot hear sounds from the living room when you are in the bedroom. The bath is also completely soundproofed, and though the owners live directly above, you cannot hear them either. It is very private. Parking on the street is always available and there is little traffic. At the bottom of the hill is a wonderful market where we picked up something to fix for dinner in the small but fully functional kitchen of this lovely apartment. Most of all, we loved looking out the windows and watching the birds, including a big flock of wild turkeys who paraded through while we were there. Every night when we came home to the flat, we felt so good. I can't tell you how relaxing this place is and how comfortable we felt being there. When we left, we forgot to pick up our camera battery which had been charging overnight. Lori found it and mailed it to us right away, which is something we really consider above and beyond the call of duty. You can't go wrong here. This is the best apartment for two we've ever found; great owners, comfortable bed, and everything you could possibly want. Thank you Lori for making it available for us. We hope your place is available when next we visit."

  • Fully equipped with lots of room inside and off-street parking.

    "Enjoyed our stay here. Lots of room inside for six people. Our host was very considerate of all aspects of our stay."
