An Oasis in Oakland
My husband and I recently stayed at this property while visiting family in the East Bay area. It was a great spot to come "home" to. It had everything we needed - really clean and comfortable, quiet and on top of that it had a beautiful view and nice amenities. Before and during our stay the owner was very responsive and helpful. If we are in the area, we would like to stay here again. We enjoyed the village that was close by too. We weren't too far from freeways and Bart either. There is an outside staircase (sturdy with handrails) that leads to the unit - keep that in mind when packing your bags!
Peace and Quiet
I had the pleasure of staying at Karen's apartment for a week . To start with Karen is very responsive to enquiries and is a clear communicator which is always important when deciding to rent from a VRBO host. During my stay Karen was readily available to answer and address all questions of which there were very few.
The inside of the apartment is very spacious and SUPER clean...and the bed size and linens .....it must be a California kingsize bed, well I've never had a better nights sleep.
Upon leaving I did provide Karen with some feedback to enhance ones stay and she was very receptive. I'm always trying to provide little suggestion to VRBO hosts who have great accommodations that with some tweaking can make them even better.
The only "potential" drawback for someone elderly would be the location. The house is located up a two lane road with many twists and turns .... then you need to proceed on a very narrow road that doesn't allow for more than one car. I avoided driving back to the apartment at night for this reason. In addition there are about 20 steps that take you from the road down to the apartment. But once inside there is total peace and quiet.
Clean, comfortable and convenient
We really enjoyed our stay at Karen’s place. It is super clean and comfortable. Karen was very accommodating and responsive. I asked if the place had an iron and ironing board because we were going to a wedding and I’d need to iron our clothes. There was not already one in the place, but she went out and bought them for us before we arrived. It is also very conveniently located—just a few minutes from hiking trails, nice restaurants, coffee shops and stores. I highly recommend this rental!
Our stay was perfect. We were in town preparing for our daughters wedding. Karen is a gracious hostess. The unit was absolutely beautiful.
Everything was perfect!
Karen's place was exactly what we were hoping it would be. A beautiful retreat in the Oakland Hills. It was clean, comfortable and quiet. The bed was perhaps the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in!!!
Stayed 5 nights and and a lovely time. Exactly as in pictures. Super quiet. Not far or a bad drive to San Francisco and all the attractions.
Close to Rockridge and Bart Station, 1/2 hour to SF (no traffic), less than 5 minutes to various hiking trails. Easy access to anything in the SF Bay Area!
Additional pricing information
The one and only rule I have - please take your shoes off upon entry. My place is super clean, and I'd love to keep it that way for my guests ~
