Places to stay in Oakland
This is a charming apartment with a eclectic vintage modern style. The space looks out into the side garden.
This apartment is just adorable. It’s small but has everything you need to be comfortable for long term or short term stays. It’s lovely to look outside the many windows into the nearby garden space.
Our home is located in Oakland, California. The apartment is located in Maxwell Park, a diverse, family and dog friendly neighborhood. Located 10-15 minutes from Fruitvale Bart station, the Coliseum Bart station, and the Oakland airport. We are close to the Laurel district that has cute shops and is very walkable. Great produce can be found at Farmer Joes marketplace which is also in the Laurel district. Also nearby is International Blvd. which has some of the best taco trucks and Mexican markets in the area. Some of my favorite things about the area: #1 -Joaquin Miller Park: The Oakland Hills is home to some of the best hiking trails a city can offer. Joaquin Miller Park offers a glimpse of history as some of Joaquin Miller's(a poet and frontiersman from the 1800's) structures are still standing in the park such as a large pyramid structure and one of his small houses. In another part of the park, full of ferns and giant redwoods, there is a terrific place to build forts and structures with the numerous large redwood branches littering the ground. In the winter when the rains come the park becomes a maze of small creeks winding through the trees..great for adults and children. #2-Redwood Regional Park: Another stunning park the lays alongside Joaquin Miller Park. Redwood Regional Park offers a wide paved path perfect for bike riding, scootering, and picnicking. This Park has wheelchair access. #3-Mountain View Cemetery and Chapel of Chimes. Visit the architecturally beautiful Chapel of Chimes, and then drive to the top of the Cemetary for a visit with some of the most famous people that have helped shape the Oakland and Berkeley area. This cemetery was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, the landscape architect who also designed New York City's Central Park and much of UC Berkeley and Stanford University. Sweeping views of the bay and a lovely place to stroll. #4-Mills College campus: a few blocks away, Mills College is a liberal arts and sciences college located in the San Francisco Bay Area. Mills was founded as the Young Ladies Seminary in 1852 in Benicia, California. The school was relocated to Oakland, California, in 1871, and became the first women's college west of the Rockies. Wonderful campus to take a stroll on, it is open to the public. For a short loop hike, park in the gravel lot to the right of the kiosk.
  • Awesome spot, great location and very homey! Would def recommend

  • A cozy, very comfortable place with soothing views of a garden out of all the windows. A perfect place to stay if you are in Oakland.

    Dana2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Sierra’s place has lots of little touches that make it comfortable - a real coffee maker, games, comfortable bed, kitchen utensils, and a beautiful outdoor yard. Sierra also had great travel advice and place to leave rapid transit passes for the next guest. A very comfortable stay.

  • Cute little place in Oakland. Ist close to public transport to go to San Francisco. It was really nice to have a Chat with Chris and Barbara. They offer the whole kitchen for usage.

    Yvonne2019-12-11T00:00:00Z
  • A great place to stay while exploring SF! Easy access to train station that takes you right into the city centre. The bed is super comfortable, and the place was spotless!

    Aaron2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • A small, cozy, immaculately clean bedroom in its own separate house behind the hosts’. Easy access to a private bathroom and shower in the main house. Felt like a quiet retreat. Lovely, responsive hosts. I wish I had had more time to get to know them a little.

    ~~UPDATE 3/13: Gigabit fiber coming soon! Note that our neighbor’s house is undergoing a full renovation. While it’s not always consistent, you may hear construction noises on weekday mornings.~~ Glamour + camping = glamping! - Centrally located to BART, UCB, & restaurants - BART (7 blocks) to SF in 25 minutes - Wifi, linens, towels, coffee, & tea provided - Big ol' yard with chickens - One of two Airbnb spots here, so you might meet some other travelers! It's like a hostel, but clean. ;)
    Welcome! Enjoy all the comforts of home in this fabulously restored vintage caravan. Come say hi to the chickens, enjoy coffee and tea in the garden. You'll be close to pretty much everything and BART is 7 blocks away. We look forward to hosting you! The house is on the same property where we live with our 2 small children. We are very family friendly. Come glamp in our little slice of country life. This 1964 Kenskill camper has been fabulously restored and customized so you can play "pretend camp" while enjoying the comforts of home. This is a great spot especially if you've ever been tiny-home-curious. In a previous life, this caravan was the food truck for Katie Cupcake, serving up the delicious treats in Flagstaff, AZ. You're sure to enjoy sweet dreams. ;) We rearranged the interior so it feels much more spacious than the traditional layout. It's really quite nice inside. And yes, there's even a full bathroom with a proper flush toilet, sink, and small separate shower. The stall is short so taller folks need to get creative to shower. Towels and linens provided. Mini kitchen has a working gas range, double sink, microwave and fridge. Coffee and tea provided, plus feel free to gather some eggs for breakfast. Watching "chicken TV" is a relaxing way to enjoy the garden. You may encounter our two kitties, Cowboy and Beebop. Our place is one of those homes that's all front yard, and we positioned this trailer so you can sit at the dinette and enjoy a view of the garden and our silly flock of chickens. Some people ask about safety. We've lived in the East Bay for 20 years, sampling the whole socioeconomic spectrum of neighborhoods. We've felt more at home here in this slice of town that we've felt anywhere else in the Bay Area. Put on your city smarts and you should be A-OK. That being said, there are lots of great places to eat and drink nearby whether you want to walk, bike or drive. Three great new restaurants are nearby: Sideshow (excellent beer garden with delicious dinner options), Cassave Restaurant (delish El Salvadoran grub and a full bar) and Easy Creole (casual, tasty, and fast). Our favorite local spot is Sweet Adeline with delicious pastries and tasty coffee. There's another coffee and sandwich shop, Alchemy Cafe next to Easy Creole. It's straight out of Portlandia. On Tuesdays, there's a farmer's market from 3-7pm just a couple blocks away! Venture a little further and hit up the big Temescal Farmer's market on Sunday mornings. Your hosts are two UCB alums and former co-opers. Lewis is a programmer by day, musician by night. Ginger is a Jill of All Trades, ranging from glassblowing to finance. Jules (age 5) and Pasqual (age 3) are our little greeters. We'll leave you to your own devices, but don't hesitate to ask if you need anything. Thanks for looking and happy travels! ***FAQ*** Q. Is there heat? A. Yes, we provide a space heater that keeps it warm and cozy. Q. Is there hot water? A. Yes, there is a dedicated on-demand water heater for the caravan. Q. If we don't want to share the bed, is there room to put a mat on the ground? A. Kind of, but I wouldn't recommend it. You could fit a mat on the walkway to the bathroom, but then you'd have to step on each other to get around! Q. Do you have luggage storage? A. Sure, we can fit a few pieces of luggage in our supply room. Q. Where do I park? A. Parking is onstreet . If you don't get a spot just outside, you can usually find one on the block. Watch for street sweeping signs (a few hours out of the month). Q. Can I bring an animal? A. No. We need to keep the space allergen-free. Q. What about assistance animals? A. Due to past trauma, dogs of any size are not allowed to enter the property as they pose a health and safety risk with our particular circumstances.
    For some reason Airbnb doesn't know how to place us on the map. We're on the same block as Lois the Pie Queen -- a neighborhood fixture and solid greasy spoon diner. Although our neighborhood is not the prettiest, we have a great community and are happy to be raising a family here.
  • Comfortable, adorable, and affordable

    Heather Ann2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place with cozy atmosphere

    Zena2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • It was a very clean and cute caravan. Exactly the same as the picture.

    Neha2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome space. I felt like I had stepped into a portal and hopped back to the 70s, then had my soul licked by a child who was born at a Grateful Dead concert or burning man! I loved it. It’s the Barbie doll caravan that I always wanted for my non existent hippie Barbie!

    Carlie2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing cute spot and super easy check in process!

    Michael2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely loved ginger and Lewis spot it is gorgeous , and cozy, and the bed is super comfy !

    Kelcie2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Definitely a out-of the-norm experience in Oakland. Chickens, gardens, funky/groovy camper that is both unique and functional. Enjoyed the fact that they accommodated a last minute booking, as well as, an additional day which I booked the following morning. Definitely not your run-of the-mill generic hotel room. This place has personality and both privacy and comfort for a memorable experience that is worthy of sharing.

    Daniel2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • I had a great time at Ginger & Lewis's place, they where awesome with communication, location was perfect close to the BART and campervan was so cute with it's little touches. Thanks for a great stay!

    Sunlit private bedroom and bathroom with separate entrance in the Oakland hills
    15 stairs lead up to a private deck where you can sit and watch the trees, deer, turkeys or just the neighbors walking their dogs. The small room has a double bed, best for one person. There is a closet and storage space for your belongings. linens and towels are provided. Small refrigerator and microwave available. Complimentary soap, shampoo and fast wireless internet. An adjustable small table can be used as a desk. In the past month my next door neighbor has started construction of a house. The view is not as great as it used to be but my place continues to be as described. Please make sure you are ok with this. On street parking
    Very private House (owned by host) atop Montclair, two blocks away from Redwood Regional Park. It is a great location for exploring Oakland, easy access to San Francisco ( 16 miles) by car or Bart (10 mins. to Rockridge station). Four min. drive to Montclair Village where you can find restaurants, cafes and other services. Multiple Parks near by, great for hiking and one of the best cycling areas in the Bay. All inquires are welcome!
  • Good and quiet neighborhood

    Julian2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Good place for a couple for a weekend stay.

    Jordan2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Second time staying here. Always a pleasure. Thank you Alma.

    Akeya2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • The area is so very peaceful and quiet. I appreciated this experience more than I can say.

    Danielle2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Communicating with Alma prior to the trip was easy with her quick responses. Her directions were helpful along with the GPS of course. Check in was easy. The room was comfy, clean & perfect for a weekend stay. I plan on booking with her on my next trip to Oakland/SF.

    Akeya2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Such a beautiful, calm, quiet stay

    Nia2019-12-16T00:00:00Z

    Come enjoy our comfortable, private, light-filled studio in-law unit. Cook light meals in our fully-stocked kitchenette (microwave, mini-fridge, sink and stove-top--pots/pans/dishes all included), a full bathroom with tub, wi-fi and cable TV and Netflix (HBO/Roku). Enjoy hill views from the front deck. Stay in a quiet and safe neighborhood in the woodsy hills of Oakland. Close to the Warriors, A's, Oakland Airport, East Bay hiking and all major freeways, and BART. Only 15 miles to downtown SF.
    Sunny studio below our family home in a well-established, friendly neighborhood. 2.8 miles to BART. 20-25 minute drive to San Francisco (with no traffic). Perfect for your mother-in-law or visiting family/friends. A bit off the beaten path in the woodsy, Oakland hills, yet close to all the best of the Bay Area! Please note: Since the studio is below our living room, you can hear footsteps above. The house was built in 1924 so creaking and vibrations are unavoidable. We did install a sound-proofing rug pad, have a thick wool rug, and recently added ceiling insulation, but we have young children and, although we are conscientious of our guests below, foot traffic will likely still be heard -- especially in the early mornings. The rest of the neighborhood is very quiet at night and there is little street noise which is rare for Oakland's urban setting.
    This is a friendly family neighborhood filled with kids, dogs and long-time residents. We love the neighborhood playground and the park-like feel of the wooded views. It is close to all major transportation needs and minutes away from the best hiking in the Oakland hills!
  • When I think of the Bay Area, this is what I imagine. Perfect location! Perfect instruction. Comfortable bed and lots of places to eat. I hope it’s available next visit for work.

    Jasmine2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • This place is awesome! Very Cozy and sparkling clean. Perfect spot for a quick stay or long trip. Has all the amenities

    Anthony2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Amy’s place is extremely clean, orderly, and attractive. It was ease to check in and out. I appreciated the written guidelines and information.

    Delia2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Amy's studio is cozy, clean and comfortable. All interactions were smooth and timely. The bed was super comfy and the kitchen space had everything we needed for our short stay. The location is close to Joaquin Miller Park, where we had a great time hiking. The family neighborhood was close to markets and fun restaurants. We could hear Amy's family above us but it was not loud or intrusive at all. A sweet space, nicely set up.

    Judie2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Amy was easy to communicate with. The check-in was very clear and easy to follow. She briefly greeted me upon arrival, watch was appreciated. And the space overall was perfect for my short stay!

    Camille2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Great place

    Romal2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Great location near Joaquin Miller Park and some nice unique cafes and a small grocery store.

    Devon2020-02-12T00:00:00Z

    You’ll love my place because of the good location, convenience to public transport, the friendly neighborhood, the ambiance.. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families (with kids). Although there is just one bedroom, the couch folds down for extra sleeping space. Please be aware that the property is in a hilly area and that there are stairs to navigate which can be challenging if you have large luggage or mobility issues.
    It's a quiet, private spot in a busy city. Feel free to enjoy the deck or yard and the many restaurants and local spots.
    Although quiet and out of the way, the cottage is located within walking distance of a grocery, movie theatre, Lake Merritt, many delightful restaurants and shopping.
  • Great place. We love it.

    Marcilla2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Deanna's cottage was cozy, clean, and private. It was not difficult to get parking and the cottage had so many amenities. Overall I had a very enjoyable stay.

    Henry2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • I don’t even know where to begin, Deanna’s cottage was such a pleasurable experience for the two nights we stayed. Checking in was so easy. The moment we checked in Deanna was so warm and kind welcoming my husband, sister in law and I with her delicious baked treats and fruits. Her cottage was very cozy and clean. She also provided many amenities that you’ll need along with orange juice and fresh milk stocked in the fridge. Instructions in her cottage was very easy to follow. The neighborhood felt very safe. Communication was quick, Deanna responded within minutes with whatever questions we had. Definitely would come back to her cottage and stay longer.

    Nancy2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Deanna's cottage was absolutely wonderful! It was a great stay and she was an awesome host. Check-in was very easy and smooth and upon arrival there was fruit and freshly baked bread waiting for us! Everything in the cottage was very clean and there is a great kitchen with everything you'd need to cook, if you wanted to. I would most definitely stay here again.

    Erykah2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Deanna was extremely hospitable and kind during our one night stay there and we absolutely loved her garden cottage! Everything was perfect - the entire space was very clean and filled with all kinds of amenities that you might need. My husband and i look forward to coming back and we highly recommend you to stay here if you're in the area. Once again thank you Deanna for accommodating to us when we couldn't find a parking space nearby. You have a lovely house and we love everything about it :)

    Jane2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • This place was great. Sparkling clean, has all needed amenities, very cute and spacious, warm and very convenient. It is located on a lovely street, walking distance to restaurants, grocery stores, movie theater and the lake. Deanna was very responsive and accommodating.

    Zeina2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • If we could live here we would! This was our first time in California, and we couldn't have started our trip any better than staying at Deanna's Cottage. It felt like a home away from home, and helped us enjoy our adventures that much more. Thank you for such a wonderful stay!

    Ashley2020-02-05T00:00:00Z

    Private guesthouse located in the Oakland Hills with stunning views of the bay. We recognize the importance of privacy, this guesthouse will allow you to have everything you need all while never having to be bothered. The sunset views can be taken in from your bed or the deck. There is a bus stop about 150 yards away if you need, the airport is about a 7 minute ride away, rail (BART) is about 5 minutes and the house is near a freeway for quick access to everywhere in the Bay Area.
    This cozy guesthouse is roughly 250 square feet and features a panoramic view of the entire bay area. The garden, with its fenced off private area, is meant to give the feeling of an escape, privacy is important for us. You can see San Francisco in the distance and watch the sun set from your bed and the Oakland Coliseum complex is in the same view so if you want to go watch a Warriors/Raiders/A's game its a straight shot. The Deck is roughly 900 square feet and features infinite views of the bay area.
    It's a suburban area in the Oakland Hills. It's very close to everything, 5 minute ride to the airport/BART (rail), walking distance to a bus stop, 15 minute drive to Downtown San Francisco, 10 Minutes to Downtown Oakland. You will need a ride to get around unless you intend to take a bus.
  • Stayed at David’s place for a night while we were in town visiting friends. The view is amazing and the place has everything we needed. Would definitely recommend to everyone.

    Roxanne2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice space with a great view over the city on a clear night. All information needed was available through itinerary and felt very private.

    Montegomery2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • At the expense of the Purple Door not being available next time I come to the Bay Area to stay, it is a great place to stay. Why? Hospitality, comfort and the view. David is a great host and super helpful in making sure everything is in order for you before you arrive. I love great towels, a comfortable bed, great shower pressure and being able to watch local tv for the news and weather. Check, check to all the above. Did I mention the view? Yes, it has a great view from the deck where you can see everything from Oakland International to Downtown San Francisco, to the Golden Gate. Oh, the sunset view is spectacular. Give the Purple Door a try and know David will take care of you. P.S. enjoy the view!

    Timothy &Quot;Casey&Quot;2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Loved the view!!!

    Mylkou2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • David's place has the best view ever and is close to lots of shopping and great breakfast. West Oakland and nice restaurants are a short ride away which was perfect for our stay.

    Elizabeth2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • David’s place was exactly what we expected being that the pictures were very accurate. From the living area to the amazing view of the city! Wifi, Netflix, heaters to keep warm, privacy, hot shower and more! Everything you need for a comfortable stay. This is a guest house perfect for 2-3 people. The place was clean and even had extra things you may have forgotten at home readily available like shampoo, and iron and ironing board etc. I’d definitely book again and recommend to a friend.

    Darriann2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • The purple room was such a great little experience. My boyfriend and I were exploring the Bay Area, and needed a cozy place to stay, and this bypassed our expectations. Small, yet super comfortable and felt like home. The views were to die for, definitely will be using this place again in the future.

    Andrea2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • The view is just amazing!! Everything was so perfect, the host was so helpful, this place just have my hart and make my experience so incredible!!!

  • We lived in Chris and Joyce’s lovely condo for two months. The host is very responsive and help us solve a bunch of unexpected problems. It was a great experience to live here.

    Qikai2019-11-06T00:00:00Z
  • Chris and Joyce were great and very flexible. Their place is clean and in a very good neighborhood considering the outer areas of Oakland. They were very thoughtful of their place and felt like home with almost every amenity one may need. Would definitely visit again when I'm in the area again!

    Murtaza2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • Nice, clean, safe place to stay. Hosts are thoughtful to have everything prepared. During our stay, Chris and Joyce keep checking on us if we need anything else. We would recommend this place to future travelers. If we come back to this area, we would like to stay in this place again

    Simon2019-07-15T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed at Chris and Joyce’s place for a month and I loved it! The condo was very clean and well equipped, there was even coconut flour for baking! Very safe neighborhood! The hosts were great at communicating and were very hospitable! I definitely recommend their place and would love to come back and stay.

    Zohré2019-06-10T00:00:00Z
  • Chris and Joyce have an amazing apartment for rent. Very safe and close to SF and Oakland. Amazing gym, pool, sauna, hot tub in the complex and all very close to apartment. We would definitely try to stay here again if we were working in the Bay Area for an extended amount of time! Great hosts!

    Kevin2019-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • This place is great for long term stays in the bay area. Close access to the freeway and it a very comfortable apartment

    William2018-11-09T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay and the hosts were great to work/ communicate with. The place is just as described and pictured, and has everything you need during your stay. Good location with many things near by. Would recommend this place to anyone coming to the area!

    Emily2018-06-13T00:00:00Z
  • This condo is AMAZING and well worth the money. Quiet, comfy, and cozy in a gated community with all the amenities. I absolutely enjoyed my time here and Chris and Joyce were the perfect hosts. They were always a phone call away and very responsive to any concerns that came about during my stay. I highly recommend this place.

    We are a 10 min. walk to Ashby BART; average ride into SF - about 20 min. Emeryville (Amtrak Station) Oakland, U.C. Berkeley are all close by. Completely private; gated keypad entry through black bamboo & rose hedges. Envisioned primarily as a romantic bedroom, the cottage is also equipped for working travelers. Large bathroom can be opened to secluded courtyard garden. WiFi, fridge, microwave, coffee Walk to: Berkeley Bowl West market, Creekwood Restaurant, cafes, good coffee, bike rentals.
    Please Note: Check-in any time after 2PM; check out by 11AM The Cottage is hidden on a tree lined street in an unassuming residential neighborhood next to our small Victorian house. It has its own gated entrance and pathway through grasses, mature trees and a hedge of wild roses. A second gate (keyless entry) allows entrance to the continuance of the pathway through an eclectic garden of fruit trees, flower and berry bushes, luxurious black bamboo, & artworks by the hosts. Guests love the eastern views from the large high windows; especially good in the mornings. The views change with the seasons; autumn leaves and burgeoning fruit from the persimmon tree, the riotous golden yellow cascade of rosa banksia, the starkly beautiful bark of the Dawn Redwood tree in winter; maybe delicate pink apple blossom petals swirling in a spring wind. Always, (it being Squirrel End and all) there are the many entertaining squirrels playing high up in the giant oak tree. While you won't need them for privacy, we have provided black-out shades for jet-lagged guests who would like to sleep in, and those who find themselves visiting during the 3 or 4 days of the year on which the very early morning sun comes blazing through. If you are lucky enough to visit on a warm day, take a refreshing shower and then a long soak in the big claw foot tub. The bathroom doors open to the totally private small outdoor patio. Actually, guests have said it is just as satisfying even on the coldest of days.
    Our modest residential neighborhood, at the intersection of Berkeley, Oakland and Emeryville, is changing rapidly. Our house was built in 1900 and we arrived in 1979. There are more and new buildings going up, more new places to do everything. In the midst of the hubbub, the Cottage at Squirrel End is an oasis of calm and quiet.
  • Such a wonderful place to stay in the East bay! The check in was super easy, Dan was helpful and communicative. Perfect place for a couple of nights in Berkeley. Clean, peaceful and relaxing.

    Sabrina2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our stay at Dan and Linda’s cottage. This was my first trip to Berkeley and the Bay Area. The cottage Dan built was very cute and cozy (not in a tiny way, just a super cute way). As far as amenities, there was a coffee pot and electric tea kettle (with coffee and tea), refrigerator, fluffy towels, shampoo/conditioner/soap. The fresh flowers were a nice touch. I would mention that there is not a TV, so bring your iPad or computer if you want to watch movies after a long day of being tourist! Lol. We were trying to disconnect from work so we didn’t bring laptops along so we ended up streaming movies on our phone. There was WiFi so that was not an issue. There is a little market/grocer just around the corner, and a liquor store about a block away. We mostly drove everywhere because it was a bit of a walk and we were tired from the hills of San Francisco. The location was very central for all the things we wanted to do. We went up to Napa/Sonoma for one day, Muir Woods another day, and spent a couple days in the city, at Chinatown and at the piers. We also explored Berkeley and visited the Berkeley Bowl. Everything was less than an hour away. Dan and Linda are great hosts and bring a personal touch to their property. Thanks for letting us stay at your cottage.

    Michelle2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Tranquil abode in a regular neighborhood. The nature setting adds to the beautiful interior design. It is an extremely clean place, bed and linens just perfect. No stairs and easy access which was a nice plus. It was almost like being in a hotel room surrounded by nature, with birds singing in the trees. Loved the bathroom. It was just perfect before a major exam where I needed space and quiet to study, along with quick access to both uptown Berkeley Oakland.

    Erin2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Great place for a quick getaway or staycation! Very tranquil and scenic!

    Amber2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Super cute and romantic Airbnb! Amazing for the value and close to many stores. The area was close by a lot of activities. Linda & Dan had such great communication. Really had a great time in their space. (:

    Kaylyn2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • A great and private space that is close to both Oakland and San Francisco via car. Linda and Dan provided everything needed and were communicative throughout our stay.

    Tiara2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • This was the perfect, dreamy spot for an adventure in Berkeley and San Francisco. Very comfortable space with beautiful details, design, and ambiance. It really is as beautiful as the pictures describe, and that clawfoot tub and courtyard are so special. We had a great stay, and enjoyed walking to nearby restaurants and shops. Linda and Dan are just as charming as their home, and made us feel welcome. We will be back, and will be sending friends in the meantime!

    2nd best stay in the bay! The former home of a music legend, this mountainside villa is the ideal place to get away from it all; close to Downtown Oakland, just across the bridge from San Francisco. Quiet, beautiful, modular space and surroundings fit for 70s era royalty, with some modern touches. If you are interested in recording packages, please inquire through our other listing, "Historic Rock n Roll Fantasy Camp". Otherwise, stay on the line and we'll get right back to you.
    The unit is extremely versatile and can transform from a full service music and film studio to an extremely comfortable hillside getaway with some of the greatest amenities. Just to be clear, this is a recording studio (both in the past and presently, however, this listing DOES NOT include "formal studio time, such as full rehearsals and/or recording packages). The live room can be used for meetings or as a large size bedroom/living room combo and the spacious deck can be used to lounge, throw darts or enjoy spectacular dining with view. -The property is secured with multiple cameras around the exterior. If you are a registered guest, these measures have been taken for both your safety and privacy. This unit will fit just about any need, let us know how can we transform the space to fit your needs. Going, going, gone.
    This neighborhood is one of the most scenic and quietly reserved the bay area has to offer. Sweeping views of the valley and gorgeous surroundings combine to make this stay magical. Whether it be the wild turkeys squawking about, dear battling the steep terrain, or endless bird watching, this studio retreat is one of a kind. It doesn't get much better than this.
  • Great, unique space! Very comfortable. So happy with my choice to stay here while visiting the Bay Area!

    Aimee2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Really unique and a cozy, calm place to spend some time at. I'd highly recommend it!

    Vinit2020-02-28T00:00:00Z

    Lina2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • What an incredible space I’m so glad we got to stay there we will definitely be back

    Vanessa2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Joe is the best! This is an unique space that would be a great retreat for a musician or other artist working on a project.

    Charles2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Okay seriously this was the best place we’ve stayed at ever. The views were amazing, the space was SO SPACIOUS! We didn’t even know what to do with that much space. There was a balcony that you can sit on for hours and just enjoy the view. I could sit and wrack my brain for hours to think of something negative and there just wouldn’t be anything. If you’re going to the Bay Area you NEED to stay here. Also go to Joe’s restaurant and tap house, we went on taco Tuesday and ate so much we could’ve hibernated for the rest of the time. Thank you Joe!

    Addison2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Joe is about the nicest, friendliest host you could ask for. Make sure you visit his restaurant just down the hill at least once!

    *Newly renovated with fresh paint, carpet, and a security screen for ventilation and privacy.* Come enjoy the cozy detached cottage in my backyard. Your home-away-from-home awaits complete with 32" flatscreen TV (no cable -- movies, network TV, USB hookup only), WIFI, on-the-go kitchen (microwave, mini-fridge, and & electric kettle), bathroom. Serene neighborhood. Private, keyed entrance.
    Quiet, private studio behind my home in a well-established, friendly neighborhood. Short walk (1 mile) to coffee, shopping, library. 2.6 miles to BART. 20 minute drive to San Francisco. Nothing fancy, but perfect for your mother-in-law or visiting family/friends. More of a place to crash than a destination in and of itself. - Wifi - 32" TV (no cable -- movie player and USB port only) - Mini kitchen (microwave, fridge, electric kettle -- no stove or oven) - Private bathroom with shower - Relaxing backyard with deck and kids' play structure - Cozy queen-size bed - Ample hanging space for clothing - Pet-free space I live in the front house, and while I can be a fairly social person, I am happy to leave you alone, too, if that is your preference. This is a quiet, family friendly neighborhood. I know my neighbors' names, and we enjoy spending time together socially. There are friendly kids and pets in every direction in addition to ample street parking. (That said, it is still Oakland -- lock your car and remove valuables.) The house is less than three miles from The Fruitvale BART station. It is a short walk to the bus stop for AC transit. Keep in mind: This is a converted garage -- cozy, but a little on the rustic side. While there is no A/C or central heat, I do provide fans and a space heater. With the exception of the infrequent heatwave, the space stays pretty comfortable. Those traveling with children please note that there is only a shower -- no tub. Enjoy your own private entrance and bathroom. You are also welcome to use the backyard space. Access to washer/dryer can be arranged if you are planning a prolonged stay. The guests I have met have been delightful. Some have joined me for a visit in my home or a cocktail in the yard. That said, I have the utmost respect for the private traveler who just wants a place to crash without any small talk obligations. My neighborhood is full of friendly families and pets. It is a short walk from many, interesting, locally-owned businesses. We get the warmth and sunshine of Oakland with close proximity to San Francisco. There are walkable bus stops (AC transit). The Fruitvale BART station is just under 3 miles away. Please feel free to contact me with questions or if you need clarification.

  • Mosa’s cottage is adorable and super quiet. Perfect space for two!

    Sarah2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Loved my stay at Mosa's! Check in was very easy, and she was even able to accommodate my request to check in a bit early. Sweet touches, like a bottle of wine, and instant coffee and oatmeal. Such a cute and quiet neighborhood, about a 10 minute lyft ride to the Fruitvale Bart station. An all around great home base for my SF/East bay adventure.

    Jessica2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Good location, lovely comfortable place to stay. Helpful host.

    Holly2020-02-25T00:00:00Z

    Relax in a private, fully equipped Casita with stunning views of East Oakland and the Bay. This newly constructed one-bedroom guest house in the quiet Eastmont Hills neighborhood has everything you need to work and play. Enjoy lounging in a hammock on the deck or on the couch streaming movies to a 32" television. Brand new stainless steel gas range and full-sized fridge make cooking a breeze, or you can partake in the countless options Oakland's restaurant scene has to offer.
    I've created the Casita to host visiting family and the rest of the year, to host the world! It was such a wonderful experience to be a part of designing and building a unique small house with a spacious feel. I would describe the style as eclectic: rustic elements, like an exposed wooden beam; industrial accents in the lighting and fixtures; and the warmth of Talavera tile and vibrant colors paying homage to Mexico. It's a little over 400 square feet, plus a 11x10 foot deck, which basically adds a room! The washer/dryer and kitchen make it totally self-sufficient for a short or longer stay.
    Eastmont Hills is a diverse neighborhood of well-kept homes below the 580 freeway and several steep blocks above MacArthur boulevard. I've lived in Oakland since 1985 but only recently moved to this neighborhood, in 2017. I find new things to love about it every day! There is an open space park just a half a block away, great for stretching your legs, watching the sunset and taking in the view of Mt. Tamalpais in Marin, four bridges, and the Oakland and San Francisco Skylines. You can hear the mockingbirds singing and the owls hooting, see hawks hovering above the hillside and enjoy the brilliant magenta of bougainvillea that seems to thrive here. To be transparent, it is East Oakland: you may hear occasional sirens from MacArthur Blvd down the hill or the momentary throb of bass from someone driving by enjoying their music a little loud; and you can't leave stuff in your car in plain view and expect it to be there in the morning. It's also not a super convenient neighborhood: public transit is spotty, no restaurants to walk to, and it is a little further away from downtown. That said, I feel safe, the neighbors are way friendlier than my old neighborhood, the Mediterranean climate is lovely and the views spectacular.
  • Cute decor and a super quiet place to rest up for a great week in the city!

    Leneisha2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • This was a GEM. Inside and outside, I loved every bit of this space! The view of the city was beautiful at night! Thanks so much for opening up your amazing home, Melia.

    Kristin2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful view, wonderful people, amazing experience. I stayed with the host for a month, and could have stayed a whole year. The view is breathtaking and never repeats itself. I walked a two mile look at 5 am every morning finishing at the peak four doors from the house. Amazing, kind and responsive host who understands guests, and provide all the necessary amenities plus more. Thank you so much for sharing your home. And I hope our paths cross someday again. Be well.

  • Thank you Gene for the nice stay in your clean and stylish airbnb. We liked it very much!

    Luise2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay, clean and looks great inside. Also very comfortable with a nice TV, work desk, and really nice bed. Just not the best area to be in

    Adan2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Super clean, comfy, and convenient place. 10 minute walk from the train station which gets you into San Francisco in minutes for super cheap (way less than an Uber). Has fridge and microwave for heating up leftovers or meals. Great desk area with high speed internet as well as ALL the streaming services on a 4K TV. Bed was super comfortable and the place was sparkling clean when we got inside. Came with a blow dryer which my girlfriend was ecstatic about. Light sleepers might have trouble cause the walls are thin so you hear outside traffic, the train, and some of the noise from the other people in the house. But we’re deep sleepers so we had zero problems. Check in and check out were easy and the homeowners were really nice whenever we’d bump into them coming in or out of the house. Don’t count on parking in the drive way unless you have a prius or something that size. I have a pickup truck so I didn’t fit in the driveway but street parking was ridiculously easy to find and right in front of the house. 10/10 overall and will definitely be staying here next time i’m in town! Communication with Gene was also quick and easy!

    Anuar2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • My son and My husband had a very satisfying experience with Gene’s Airbnb accommodation. The detailed instructions were clear and easy to follow. I was a little concerned about the safety of this part of town, but there were no issues. We were able to park the rental car inside the fence. We did not need to use the heater. The accommodations are Spartan (party of two or less best), but worked great for us, we just needed to crash somewhere overnight, and continue fresh the next day. I heard people talking during the night in one of the neighboring apartments, but if you use earplugs or have deep sleep, not an issue. Finally, very convenient to get to either the suburbs of Oakland, or SFO airport.

    Lora2020-02-07T00:00:00Z

    Zohal2020-02-06T00:00:00Z

Gene & I chatted for a bit while checking in the space. As I was hosting on Airbnb full time in SF. We traded stories, etc. Nice conversation & hospitality;-)

    Sean2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Stay the at Helen's place was good! She provided clear and detailed instruction to check in. Though we did not meet her but her response was fast. Place was exactly how it was advertised.

    Hazly2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Helen was an awesome host, made the whole check in process very easy. Loved the privacy that comes with this room; having a private entrance and bathroom. She also provided a small heater in addition to having the thermostat on. It came very much in handy as the weather was pretty chilly during our stay. Would definitely book the place again!

    Enjoy your own private room with separate entrance from the outside, small kitchen, fold out dining table, queen bed, and lots of natural light. Your private bathroom is adjoining, off a hallway with shared laundry between the studio and rest of the house.
    Our newly renovated, secluded studio space has a queen sized bed with firm mattress, small fold out table and kitchen with sink, gas burners, small fridge, microwave, kettle, and french press for coffee. The room can easily accommodate two guests and is well set up to cook breakfast, lunch, or a simple dinner. The adjoining full bath includes a walk-in shower and is stocked with fresh towels and toiletries. We do have an additional charge of $30/ night for a second guest.
    Our location in sunny Berkeley feels remote and tranquil even though we are very close to public transportation. We are 3 blocks away from the Ashby Bart stop which runs day and night into San Francisco, downtown Berkeley, and both the SFO and Oakland airports. There is also an AT Transit bus (#49) stop at the corner of ashby & king street. The quiet tree lined streets, lovely Victorian & Edwardian homes, and a bustling elementary school create a joyful and diverse neighborhood. There are several restaurants and cafes and the famous Berkeley Bowl grocery store within a short walk from the house.
  • John has a great place right in the heart of Berkeley! The spot is exactly as advertised - great amenities in a private unit. While I only stayed one night, I would definitely rebook next time I’m in the area.

    Andrew2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Located in a quaint neighborhood, John’s place is conveniently close to public transportation, coffee shops, grocery stores, restaurants and more. This studio has all the comforts of home!

    Linda2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice place. Better than many places I’ve stayed. Will stay again.

    Jennie2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • John was very hospitable and provided everything we needed during our stay. His place is so clean! We fully enjoyed having our privacy and being able to cook dinner in the space. I would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a place to stay in Berkeley. Thank you again for having us!

    John2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Great little place. Clean, quiet, convenient.

    Anne2020-02-11T00:00:00Z

    Traditional Japanese architecture tucked away in a great Berkeley neighborhood. Peaceful and quiet but just a few blocks to UC Berkeley, all the restaurants of the "Gourmet Ghetto", and the North Berkeley Bart station. Berkeley Short Term Rental Registration # ZCSTR2017-0007
    Traditional Japanese building with Tatami mats, organic queen size futon, and an "Ofuro"- a deep and luxurious soaking tub (similar feel to a hot tub). Entering the tub requires agility as it is high and you have to stand on a bench, sit on the edge of the tub, and swing your legs around. If you have any questions about that please ask (and see pictures). Lots of natural light with five skylights. Older wooden building with a somewhat rustic feel. The woven grass tatami mat floors have a noticeable smell of dry grass which we find to be lovely, but may not be for everyone. Comfortably sleeps 2 in new all natural foam mattress. Minimal kitchen with small fridge, tea kettle, and small toaster oven. We use fragrance free and non-toxic cleaning materials and provide Dr. Bronners hand soap. There is a fan available for use.
    Peaceful neighborhood just minutes from downtown Berkeley and UC Berkeley. Close to amenities including restaurants, coffee (Philz!), grocery stores, Farmers' market (Thursday afternoons), ice cream parlors, beauty salons, and drugstores.
  • Great hospitality. Helpful tips about the neighborhood. Great ambience. Its evrything as pictured. A quiet get away close to downtown.

    Carol2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • This was a really beautiful place to stay. Thank you! Super easy check in and check out.

    Brittany2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Wow! Relaxing and quiet vibe with a soaking tub you won't believe. 10 out of 10 on this hidden gem

    Patrick2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • What a lovely, lovely space. I just needed a place to crash before a half marathon and this little home was just perfect. I felt my blood pressure lower just walking in; it’s so relaxing. I hope to be able to come back!

    Becca2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Very charming studio in a great location. I do recommend this place

    Andrea2020-02-28T00:00:00Z

    Megg2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful and peaceful Japanese Tea House is a perfect and special place to stay. I enjoyed it very much. The bed was uncommonly comfy!

    Chris2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • When we stepped in, we felt like we were transported to a ryokan (onsen hotsprings resorts) in Japan. Of course, there aren't the full course kaiseki meals or a hinoki bath (the maintenance would be insane), but there are full tatami mats, beautiful and fragrant woodwork in the room, and a spacious Japanese style bath. There's even a horigotatsu style table (tables with a hole underneath for your foot to rest), so you can feel completely relaxed throughout your stay. It really surpassed our expectations, the hosts did an amazing job recreating a slice of Japan in the middle of Berkeley. Thank you Zan and Rainbow, and hope to stay again some day!

    This private suite with private entry is a slice of heaven in a woodland setting. Due to the coronavirus we are taking extra care to disinfect frequently touched surfaces between reservations. The suite features a lovely patio, luxurious large bath with a walk-in shower for two, heated floors and large jacuzzi tub! The bedroom features elegant furniture and a comfortable queen sized bed, USB ports in the bedside lamps, a desk, large screen TV and strong WIFI signal.
    This private suite is located on the lower level of our home, accessed from the south side of the house down an exterior set of stairs. There are no nearby neighbors on this side of the house and it is very quiet - all you see is forest and the view to west. The bathroom features a large walk-in shower for two, heated floors and a fabulous two person jetted tub. Neck pillows at each end of tub are provided for enhanced relaxation! Coffee, Tea, and small refrigerator are provided. Also plates and silverware for two, plus wine opener. Transportation and parking are very convenient. There is ample on-street free parking on this quiet street with only one immediate neighbor. Freeway access is very quick and easy via highway Highway 13 and I-580. San Francisco is about 20 minutes away (if no traffic) or a convenient commute via BART from nearby Rockridge Station. We are very near the University of California at Berkeley campus (17 to 12 min.), and major highways 80, 580, 24 and 880, which can whisk you to the vibrant galleries of Sausalito (40 minutes), San Jose (50 minutes), or Santa Cruz (90 minutes). If you are up for a day-long outing, don't miss the grand Muir Woods, wine tours in Napa, or mud baths in Calistoga. Quick access to sunshine on foggy days via the Caldecott Tunnel to points east - Orinda, Lafayette, Walnut Creek, and Lake Tahoe (~3 1/2 hours.)
    Our home is located on a ridge above downtown Oakland. The views are beautiful, the neighborhood is quiet and upscale. Public transportation is not convenient. Guests either drive or Uber/Lyft. Parking on the street directly in front of our home is always available because our neighbors are distant.
  • Perfect little place. Nice, huge bathroom. Amazing view. It was a very pleasant stay.

    David2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Where is the 10 star option!? This place is JUST what it looks like in the pics and more! Your eyes do not deceive you and you will probably get your expectations exceeded- marianne was on the ball with contacting us and providing me with good tips for eateries and grocery stores with my food allergies, and she made sure to contact us early when there was a change in her instructions about where to park. She also left us with info to a referral as her and her husband were going out of town, so we had someone to contact with Qs or concerns. The view is beautiful and serene from the window and its very private and secluded, i wish we could have stayed longer! Immaculately clean and it looks like it was built and furnished yesterday- very modern, the fridge and plugs work great, and we had a romantic time with the candles and lavendar bath salts and the jetted tub- it really reminds me of like an anniversary inn room but for SUCH a good price- definitely will recommend and be coming back! Also loved how much info she provided about San Francisco, including hospitals, grocery stores and tourist stops, i mean...these are the best of the best hosts

    Tali2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • The space was lovely, clean, and comfortable. The bed was comfy and I loved the shower and jacuzzi.

  • Super nice and unique stay! Was perfect and would recommend it to anyone. Lovely hosts as well ! Felt extremely welcomed here.

    Martin2020-03-02T00:00:00Z

    Jon2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • I had a nice stay at Mishaa's for a night. She kindly allowed me to drop off my luggage before check-in time, and showed me the place. (Thanks to that, I was able to visit friends in SF for the afternoon.) The room is comfortable, well furnished, and located close to BART. It's also walking distance from Whole Foods and Berkeley Bowl---popular grocery stores. I wold stay again!

    Ashwin2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our stay, Mishaa's place is lovely. The room was clean, comfortable and well decorated. We loved the coffee and cookies. The location was nice and convenient, a short walk to the red line.

    Michael2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Mishaa’s space is really lovely. The cottage-style bedroom is a sweet little backyard retreat in the heart of Berkeley. Great balance between location and peacefulness in terms of a shorter term stay. Mishaa was responsive and a great artist!

    Katherine2020-02-19T00:00:00Z

    Andrew2020-03-02T00:00:00Z

  • We enjoyed our stay very much and will hopefully stay there again soon! The location is beautiful!! And the apartment had everything we needed including a comfortable king-sized bed. Just know there are lots of stairs, and at night it can be a bit dark.

    •Private, clean guest suite on ground floor of our home. •Wifi, TV, YouTube TV (cable), Netflix, and MLB Package. •Kitchenette w/ coffee maker, mini-fridge, microwave, toaster, tea kettle. •Full bath with tub. •5 minute walk to BART. •Please review our "neighborhood" section before booking to ensure it is a fit.
    The suite is located on the first floor of our home and although there are no common spaces, you may hear me, my husband Tim, and our dog Ginger moving about from time to time. We are mindful of noise while guests are here but we can sometimes be heard going in and out of the downstairs back door and up and down the stairs, accessing other downstairs rooms, opening closets. Not high traffic.
    Our home and guest suite are located just off of the main street in Fruitvale in a residential/commercial district that borders a more industrial part of town where many artists live in live/work spaces. Like other developing Oakland neighborhoods, Fruitvale can seem like a study in contrast. Celebrated for its diversity, it is home to a large immigrant population (predominantly Spanish-speaking) and to working-class families and these days people are paying $700k for a 1,000 square foot condo here. We are very close to the Fruitvale BART station and the new bus rapid transit line (under construction). There are restaurants, a gas station, grocery stores, and laundry just around the corner. We are a short drive to the Oakland hills and the Alameda estuary and shoreline. Fruitvale is home to people from all walks of life. It is a multicultural, urban, commercial district. We live in a transit hub so our neighborhood is a bit gritty. People generally stay with us because we are close to BART and we are an affordable Bay Area option, not necessarily to hang out in our neighborhood. Though, we love our amenity and culture-rich neighborhood and it is a local, low-key foodie destination with many beloved and celebrated restaurants. Confident travelers who like exposure to different cultures tend to love our neighborhood. If you're looking for a more suburban experience our neighborhood is not for you. You will see graffiti and litter on the ground and you will see some well-maintained homes and some landlord-neglected homes. You will also see families out shopping together, neighbors walking their dogs, commuters walking to and from BART, and street food vendors selling elote, fresh fruit, churros, and tamales. You'll also be within walking distance to the best tacos you'll ever eat. *The route between our house and BART is lined with businesses and a new apartment complex. We walk to and from BART after midnight some nights. We also walk our dog between 11 and 12 many nights a week without incident. As we would in any city, we exercise caution and maintain awareness of our surroundings and we suggest that to guests. Some travelers feel fine walking to and from BART after dark or late at night and some (like lone travelers) might feel more comfortable taking a taxi or Lyft/Uber. If you'd like to read a recent article about Fruitvale, search online for "Fruitvale: The Town's Gem" in the East Bay Express newspaper.
  • Really nice space, bed was comfy and everything was super clean! Shannon and Tim were great hosts, and transiting to San Fran is straightforward and doesn't take too long. As others have mentioned the neighbourhood is a little daunting, but we didn't encounter any problems.

    Joy2020-03-02T00:00:00Z

    Redwood Sanctuary is located in the idyllic Oakland Hills with beautiful vistas, hikes, and parks within a short drive. The home is situated on half an acre of land in the middle of redwood, eucalyptus, and oak trees secluded away from other homes. Montclair village is an 8 minute drive, providing lots of great food and shops. Minutes from Highway 13 and 580. It is a 1 bedroom studio with a queen bed and a pull out sofa bed. It can comfortably accommodate up to 3. We'd love to host your stay!
    The home is set back a ways from the street down a long driveway on half an acre, giving the house plenty of privacy away from any nearby homes. The in-law unit is located above the detached garage, with a flight of 14 stairs to access the entrance. Off street parking in the driveway is provided. TV and high speed fiber internet. We live in the home adjacent to the detached in-law suite and have 2 small children, so noise levels in the evenings should be kept to a reasonable level.
    Minutes away from Montclair Village and Glenview, both which offer great restaurants and coffee shops. Joaquin Miller Park, located 9 minutes from the home is a beautiful redwood park filled with hiking trails. Downtown Oakland and Lake Merritt are a short 15 minute Lyft ride away.
  • This is quite the gem! So clean, cute and quiet. Waking up to the view out that window was magical. We hope to stay again! Thank you!

    Danielle2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Anthony has an awesome place. Definitely was an amazing place to stay for our vacation. 10/10

    Seth2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I stayed at this little retreat over a weekend. There is a large window in the main room that looks out to a large redwood tree. You really feel like you are in the woods, though you are not far from the big city. The unit is cozy and stylish with lots of wonderful little accents. The kitchen is well stocked if you want to cook, as is the bathroom if you forget shampoo or lotion. They also provide some recommendations on local eateries nearby in case you'd rather eat out. All in all, our stay was very pleasant. I would definitely return to, and recommend, the Redwood Sanctuary.

    Kim2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Anthony's place far exceeded our expectations. The drive over to the airbnb provided stunning views along the way. We were greeted at the bottom of the drive way by beautiful turkeys. The place was very clean and cozy. We will definitely be staying there again.

    Esmeralda2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice

    Juan2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Wow... such an amazing place to stay, Anthony was a phenomenal host, & gave great tips for the area. This was my first California experience & I’m so grateful you shared your place.

    Philip2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • This home is a lovely get away, pocketed in a lovely neighbourhood. The view was amazing- wildlife and city views in one!

    Renee2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • This space is a MUST STAY if you’re in the San Fran area. It’s picturesque setting in a hill is breathtaking. You feel as if you’re in a wilderness instead of a neighborhood. Just wait till evening and take in wildlife that roam the neighborhood...turkeys and deer. Tony has thought of everything you’ll need, luxurious shampoo, conditioner, Peet’s Coffee, and other amenities. .it’s listed as an efficiency, but feels like a one bedroom size. You won’t be disappointed.

    This one bedroom is perfect for two people but does not accept pets.
    What makes this space unique is it is close to the Bay Bridge and it has more that ten different types of restaurants and various cultural food options and we are close to transportation to anywhere in the city.
    The is s residential neighborhood and does not allow any animals in the home including service pets. Sorry for the inconvenience.
  • Nice place for the evening, easy check in!

    Steve2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Good place, as expected close to a lot of restaurants and stores nice to have the whole place to yourself. Amber lives right downstairs and walls seems pretty thin or easy to hear things happening around. Overall good experience

    Dani2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Great place. Awesome bathroom. Easy location.

    Steven2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Amber's place was AWESOME and clean! I enjoyed the area immensely and hope to visit again one day, it was so nice!

    Rik2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • This was such a treat and exceptional value. As some others have mentioned there is some ambient noise, but never late at night or early morning. The location was fabulous and the house was gorgeous.

    Katie2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Amber's place was neat and very homey. It was also conveniently located near the bus stop on San Pablo, and near lots of great places to eat. Great, quiet neighborhood. I would recommend anyone to stay here!

    Elaine2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay here!! The location is great and close to the city. The place was super clean and had an old quirkiness to it which we love. It had everything we needed (including a full kitchen which is nice) and was very private despite the fact that the hosts live on the bottom level....it still felt like your own space. I would highly recommend!!

    Kristen2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place - close to public transportation and main highways. The bed was comfortable and the thoughtful touches made the place a wonderful respite from the city’s fast pace.

    Cosy, clean, sunny guest room in small downstairs flat with garden access. Simple breakfasts available on request. Historic home undergoing gradual renovations. Rustic charm and lots of pets.
    Stay comfortably in your simple, well-appointed bedroom in my quiet flat in a peaceful neighborhood. I live here, and you will stay as my guest. Convenient location for Oakland/Berkeley/Emeryville; close to freeways I-580, I-880, I-80/Bay Bridge, Hwy 24, and Hwy 13, and BART (Ashby and MacArthur stations.) Local advice freely given. Loaner bicycle available.
    The house is located on a Bicycle Boulevard in a quiet, tucked away, family-oriented neighborhood that is undergoing something of a renaissance. Houses are quickly being bought at high price and remodeled by bourgeois newcomers, but something of the old neighborhood remains-- cracked sidewalks, chain-link fencing, and litter are part of the local texture. Take a stroll down the block to see babies and families walking along with workers, families, loiterers, commuters, homeless people, kids at play, teens on bikes, and varied and interesting gardens, all enjoying the sunshine (or fog.) Historic Oakland residential neighborhood with beautiful architecture. The Tuesday Berkeley Farmers' Market is a 3-minute walk down the street. Sweet Adeline is a superior neighborhood bakery. NB This is a very typical Oakland neighborhood. Guests may or may not feel comfortable walking alone late at night. Also, the neighborhood is mainly residential and somewhat "off the beaten track" and may be better suited to car/cab/bicycle transportation than walking, although many guests have been very happy to get around by foot.
  • The room was amazing. Very clean, comfortable bed, black out curtains were a plus. There’s a space heater in the room (and the bathroom) which I appreciated on cold days. John was a great host and very responsive through text.

    Natasha2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Stay here! The house and neighborhood is super cute. John was incredibly hospitable and made it feel like home!

    Samantha2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice and clean house. John is really nice and easygoing. Love the dogs and cat.

    Yun2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • I enjoy John's rental because he is a great host who is easy to communicate with and the space is quiet, clean and has everything I need for a pleasant stay. I will be back.

    Eric2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful stay. John is a warm and friendly host. Location is ideal.

    Clean and light-filled one bedroom apartment in KONO neighborhood. Less than a mile to BART (0.9 miles) and half a block to the bus, this centrally located apartment is perfect for commuting to downtown Oakland, Berkeley or San Francisco.
    This 1906 Victorian home was renovated in 2011 and is split into three separate units. The available unit has beautiful wood floors and a full kitchen. The apartment can comfortably fit two people on a queen sized bed in the bedroom. A futon in the living room could sleep up to two more guests for an additional charge. Towels, sheets and bedding are provided. Parking is on the street and is free. Out back we are experimenting with urban homesteading and have a large garden, chickens and occasionally turkeys! Don't worry, we have no roosters and it's very quiet inside the apartment. Adjacent to the house is the freeway and BART tracks but inside the apartment you do not hear anything. The house has double-pane windows and a gas heater.
    The neighborhood is up and coming, situated between downtown Oakland and Berkeley. Within a few blocks are numerous restaurants, coffee shops with wi-fi, bars, a halal market, and public transportation. Downtown Oakland is a vibrant area with music, night life, delicious restaurants and a thriving art scene. We recommend Burma Superstar for dining and visiting the New Parkway Theater for watching particular movies in a comfy couch while being served food. Also Lane Splitter is fantastic for a good pizza and the Scottish pub down the street has amazing beers and a great lamb pie. Going west from the house is a little rough but east along Telegraph Ave is a great street all the way north to Berkeley and south to downtown Oakland.
  • Charming apartment near downtown. Easy access to grocery stores. Host was very responsive!

    Peter2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Loved staying here! The apartment is adorable and had everything we needed for our stay. The location is great and we were able to walk to the BART station very easily. Would definitely come back again next time I need a place in California.

    Mikayla2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • The place was perfect for my trip! Exactly what I needed, and everything was smooth as can be. Great location too, I was able to walk to anything I needed.

    Brady2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • For quick business travel and short, fun stays, Joe and Jade's apartment is very conveniently located, quite clean, and was more than comfortable for my colleague and me. While parking on the street is free, a smaller car may work better as parallel parking can get tight. And, while the neighborhood seems to be on the come-up, those intimidated by those less fortunate on the streets might be uncomfortable in the neighborhood. However, we didn't experience any problems and Joe and Jade's property is well secured. We felt safe the entire time and enjoyed our stay. Would stay again.

    Jason2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was enjoyable and as-advertised. A lovely place in a cool neighborhood!

    Damian2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Great space and great location. Just like the photos. The hosts are responsive and accommodating but not all up in your business, which I appreciate. The place gets amazing light. It’s also really nice and quiet. A really relaxing place to come back to after a day full of work and meetings. I’d highly recommend.

    Michelle2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cute and cozy stay. Quiet and comfortable. Great host, responsive and super sweet!

    Annora2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • This spot was perfect. The space was comfortable and home-like, and well stocked with everything one may need. It was a good location and we felt safe and cozy. Perfect for a short stay, although I’m quite sure I would book again for a longer stay. Thank you so much!

    Silver is a cozy summer or winter retreat. She is a 36 foot motor yacht with all the amenities of a small apartment. The atmosphere aboard is modern yet cozy. Silver makes a great alternative to motels and hotels and is located in a secure area.
    Silver is a 36 foot motor yacht nestled in the shadow of the historic Quinn's Lighthouse restaurant/pub and the quaint gardens of Embarcadero Cove Marina. The marina is less than a mile from the Mom and Pop shops, bars and restaurants that line the beautiful streets of Alameda and under 2 miles from historic Downtown Oakland. The yacht has great outdoor areas including a fully enclosed flybridge and a separate open air aft deck - perfect for enjoying a glass of wine, listening to music, watching the sunsets or just enjoying a cup of coffee. The kitchen has a tea and coffee making facilities, a microwave, and a fridge/freezer, as well as plates/mugs/glasses/utensils, etc. The bathroom has a full-sized, electric toilet along with wash basin and a large shower room. There is hot and cold water throughout. The forward bedroom has a comfy king-sized island berth with opening hatches. The 2nd bedroom is cozy and has a queen sized berth. Free parking is available. The boat is fully equipped for a memorable stay. All you need to bring is your toothbrush! Estuary cruises are available at an additional cost. Please feel free to inquire any time. We also have kayaks available for guests to use for free which are a fun way to explore the estuary. If the dates you want aren't available, please check out my other listing (click on my profile to see listings.)
  • Great experience. Shaun was great and even gave us tips on local spots. I think I remember other reviewers said it was not sparkling clean. It was not sparkling but it was definitely not dirty, I would say typical for a docked boat. felt totally comfort staying and I am big on cleanliness.

    Lilli2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • It’s a getaway resort in the heart of Oakland. Quiet calm relaxing evening and calm coffee sitting up top in the morning. $5.00 Lyft to nearby Jack London Square, and much more. Best experience in Oakland. Shaun was exceptional and on time.

    Don2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • This is an awesome experience! Fantastic location and a wonderful host! It doesn’t get any better than this.

    Jason2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Clean and comfortable. The neighborhood is a little sketchy, but there are plenty of places to eat nearby.

    Cyrus2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • It is the perfect get away to be on a boat in a quiet marina just below a pub with great food. Only stayed one night so no time to kayak this trip. Shaun is a great communicator and we love his boats and the pub too. We are already planning our next visit.

    Marie2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Shaun’s boat was exactly the type of getaway my fiancée and I needed. It’s location was perfect. The marina had a restaurant where we had a delicious meal! We were able to take our leftovers back to boat and have food for later. The location is super close to SF just about a 20 min drive. We didn’t feel unsafe it’s pretty secure where the boat is. Just use your common sense and you shouldn’t have a problem in the area.

    Devyn2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Fun, different place to stay. Great price, good experience.

    Alexis2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • This is a really quirky place to stay. The mooring gives you fantastic views, especially of the sunsets and sunrises. The boat itself is well equipped. It can comfortably accommodate 4 people but wouldn't be suitable for the less inform. The boat is moored right next to Quinn's Lighthouse restaurant, which has a great selection of reasonably priced food and HUGE portions! If you're looking for something a bit different when you come to stay in the Bay area, give Shaun a shout and come stay on the yacht.

    Large, romantic room with King sized bed, gas fireplace. We collect ethnic, Sacred, kinky and highly erotic art. Close to Bart (subway) and restaurants, this is a great home base for anyone wanting to explore Oakland, San Francisco, or the East Bay, with or without a car. Namaste, Blessed Be! 420 Friendly
    We have a large collection of erotic, homoerotic, kinky and ethnic art, people tell us our house is like a museum. It's a big house, quiet and we have done everything we can think of to make it enjoyable for you. The 4poster bed is super comfortable and the gas fireplace easy to use and it keeps the room cozy. It's large enough for 3 people. We have a futon available and the couch is comfy. We welcome diverse lifestyles. The room has curtains and a folding screen rather then a conventional door. When people go upstairs you will hear them ( there are no other guests downstairs.) If you want a really totally quiet room check out my other, upstairs, rooms.
    Over 100 restaurants are within a 2 mile radius (3K) Korean, Ethiopian, sushi, pizza, Mexican, everything from fast food to Michelin stared. Vibrant Hipster and arty part of Oakland with a high walking score. Oakland is an interesting urban environment, with it's share of the homeless, this can feel uncomfortable for some people however we have lived here 15 years and feel comfortable. Our street has always been safe. The whole Bay Area is accessible from here! There are yoga, dance and Pilates studios nearby as well. Our house is just 4 blocks from Bart (subway) you can be in downtown San Fransisco in twenty minutes, downtown Oakland or Berkeley in ten minutes. The Wine Country (Napa and Sonoma) the Redwoods, Silicon Valley are all accessible day trips (by car) This is a vibrant urban neighborhood, surprisingly quiet at night but there is always the potential for leaf blowers, home remodeling (after 8AM), barking dogs, car alarms, sirens, and other big city sounds. If you need extreme quiet please bring earplugs.
  • Great value and close to fun stuff on telegraph ave!

    Fletcher2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • I think this place is like the original Air bnb where it was like staying at a friends house and not like now how everyone is creating neutral, personality-less rooms for the general palette. This place is funky, creative, lived in, has flavor, history, intrigue and a warm casual welcoming. Many fantastic curious things to behold all around. Easy access & process. Quiet after 10 is a thing I did not expect tho. Besides that we were entirely charmed and comfortable.

    Lucid2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • The space was clean and welcoming. There were two available bathrooms that were both very clean. The home has a lot of character and beautiful art. It was walking distance to the MacArthur Bart station. The hosts were very responsive to messages and questions. All the guests at the home were polite. I travel alone and enjoy my time away alone, there was a great respect from the hosts and other guests when it came to privacy.

    Deva2020-03-01T00:00:00Z

    Moriah2020-02-21T00:00:00Z

  • Art and ambiance was awesome. Loved the candle mantle and the box of treats out back was a really sweet bonus! Thanks for a sweet time.

    Rianna2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Wow, what a wonderful space! Soleil’s home was a beautiful eclectic mixing of art and friendly faces. There were so many things to catch our interest and the communication upfront was incredible as well. Our host was flexible with our check in time, which won big points after our travels! If you are looking for a unique and open hearted experience in the Oakland area, I would highly recommend staying at this listing.

    Sarah2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Great place if you need a place to crash in Oakland for a couple nights! Very cool space, great host communication, comfortable bed. One thing I would note — speaking at a normal volume in the room late at night we accidentally woke up the house manager who then had to come and ask us to stop talking, which we felt badly about. If you’re going to stay here, you should plan on not talking in the room after 10PM or so.

    Adriana2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Kymi's space is clean and well located. Only a 12 min walk to the Rockridge BART and close to College Ave, which has some great restaurants. Kymi was a great host and very quick to reply to any questions or concerns. The bathroom is a small but over all practical. Its great for one or two people. Highly recommended.

  • The space is great for two people, the room is spacious and has a closet where you can put all your stuff. The mini fridge and microwave are very practical and the bathroom is in great conditions. It’s a nice and calm neighborhood and Larry the host is a great man and very attentive

    Luciana2020-02-29T00:00:00Z

    Come enjoy the Oakland hills in a cozy downstairs studio with its own separate entrance and convenient kitchenette. It has one twin bed with the option of an additional foam mattress for a second guest. Pets are welcome, but please let me know in advance. Also, please note that the ceiling is 6'6" high, so taller people may want to consider my other (upstairs) room instead.
    This studio is a quiet, relaxing retreat, tucked in the heart of the Oakland hills. It's located on a residential street minutes from the shops and restaurants of Montclair Village, and has its own entrance and kitchenette. Pet owners will appreciate being able to walk their dogs on a forested, hilly street. I kindly request that you do not use my backyard to walk your dog for its needs.
    Montclair Village, a quaint but upscale local shopping district, is a few minutes away and has restaurants, stores and other amenities. It's helpful to have your own car here and there is plenty of street parking. But it's also a great place to ride a bike, and you can enjoy neighborhood walks at any time. If you have a bike with you, you're welcome to store it on the property. The neighborhood is very safe and, having lived here for almost 40 years, I know my neighbors well. A bit further away, Piedmont Avenue is also great for restaurants and shopping, and the Temescal and Rockridge neighborhoods are both about 10 minutes away by car. A Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) station is also about 10 minutes away, providing access to San Francisco, downtown Oakland and the greater Bay Area. Downtown Oakland is also easy to access by freeway when there is not heavy traffic. Lake Temescal, a popular regional park, is five minutes away and has an entrance just yards from the freeway on-ramp down the hill from the house. Other East Bay Regional Parks, including Huckleberry and Redwood, are also very close, providing great access to hiking trails.

  • Jim is a great host that is readily accessible when needed. Location is great, quiet and yet close enough to town

    Ken2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect for a single, budget-minded traveler with well-behaved dogs. Central location, only a couple of minutes off Hwys 13 & 24 and surprisingly untouched by rush hour traffic on the eve of a holiday weekend! At 5’4”, I wasn’t bothered by the low ceiling or tiny shower — but yes, probably not the best space if you (or your dogs) are above-average size. Parking (about 1 very steep block away) also not ideal for someone with mobility issues, but there is an ADA-type ramp from the street to the house which made dropping off luggage a breeze. Comparable in price to a dog-friendly motel, with more charm, a good kitchenette, and better privacy (Jim was lovely but unobtrusive, and all the neighbors I encountered while out walking the dogs were extremely friendly). I will definitely check for availability at Jim’s next time I’m in town.

  • This is such a pleasure to write. This is my second stay at Jim's place. I feel very comfortable and safe in Jim's small studio. It has everything that I need. This time, I didn't bring my car and so I didn't have to do the daily challenge that everyone who lives on the hills has - of finding a place to park. I found it a comfortable walk to go down into the town of Montclair - about a mile. There is no TV. Frankly, I don't miss it. It's peaceful. If you see Jim, be sure to say hello. He's such a pleasure to talk with.

  • Jim was a great host. He was very flexible to the changes in my schedule and always answered promptly when I called.
