Great check-in experience100% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.

My place is close to dining, shopping and freeways. UC Berkeley is roughly 2.3 miles away, as is downtown Oakland. About 1 mile from Rockridge, MacArthur & Ashby BART. You’ll love my place because of the quiet, the outdoors space, the neighborhood, the people, and the location. My place is good for couples and solo adventurers.

It's a nice and cozy place just as you would expect from a cottage. Very private and a nice courtyard that gives a relaxed feeling in the middle of a big city like Oakland. Ruxana is very quick to respond. Check in and check out is very easy.

Ruxana is a wonderful host and the cottage is clean, spacious and private. It's perfect for a short or extended stay. It's one mile from the MacArthur Bart station and I used Uber to get to the station.

We liked the location in Oakland and the spaciousness (it's quite large). Neat and clean and it had all the amenities of home (washer, dryer, microwave, coffeemaker, etc.) and we were very comfortable for an entire week.

Ruxana's place was absolutely awesome! A super cozy cottage, centrally located, with all the amenities you would need for a weekend getaway or an extended stay. I stayed here for 2.5 weeks as I started a new job in the Bay Area and it was great!
