The place is remodeled and super cozy and clean.
The host were nice and welcoming, the place ia clean and beatiful.
I titled this Nice View because that was the best part of this rental. The back garden is lovely with a view of the bay. The entrance to the apartment is in the backyard so you must go through the front gate and navigate through rough terrain to get to the back. The apartment itself is split level so if you have any mobility issues, this is not for you. The owners were very nice but we could hear them upstairs, walking, talking, dogs barking, etc. One morning it sounded like they were moving furniture at 7AM. The beds are small and not comfortable. There is a large dining table but no couch. This did not feel "Private" at all, it was like staying with a family you don't know. On a good note, the price is right.
Great property for visiting family in Castro Valley!
It met our needs perfectly. The garden was beautiful, and on a clear day you can see the bay from the lower veranda. Homeowners live above, but very quiet. Neighborhood was nice. We were able to have a parking spot right out front.
Great place away from everything
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.
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.
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.
