Newly remodeled 1 BR/1 BA, 600 sq ft private unit w separate entrance. The only living space on top floor. Great views, wireless, TV w local broadcast, minifridge, microwave, portable a/c unit, Keurig coffee maker, private patio, 2 queen size beds, and a couch that folds down into a futon.
This rental is for the entire upstairs floor of our 1952 Oakmore ranch style house. It has a separate entrance on the side of the home, and is located up one flight of stairs. The interior of the private unit is clean, uncluttered, and modern. There is a door frame, but no actual door between the sleeping quarters and the living quarters. Included within the unit are two queen sized beds. The one in the bedroom has a memory foam topper. There is an additional queen size bed in the living room next to a couch/futon that folds down into a bed. The beds are outfitted with 1500 thread count sheets, and the one in the bedroom has a down comforter. We provide clean linens, towels, shower gel, shampoo, and conditioner. We are a residential home and operate on a residential hot water heater. For that reason, we're best suited to host groups of 2. We also are equipped to host families consisting of 2 adults and 2 kids. We absolutely cannot host groups of more than 4.
Oakmore is a safe, peaceful residential neighborhood in Oakland. It is close to highway 13, making commuting easy. The house backs up to green space, and we often see deer running through the back of our property. The house is a very short drive to the restaurants and shops on Park Street, and in Montclair Village.
  • A little bit of a drive up the winding roads to get the place but the view is well worth it! Perfect for my best friend and I who was visiting San Francisco, amazing place for a great price

  • Hi Christi, many thanks for your quick responses and providing extra needs very willingly! Would recommend this setting as long as one has a car or is comfortable with rideshare. Accurately represented, great hiking nearby, beautiful setting. Would suggest an additional towel rack for those beautiful Egyptian towels!

    Gaynelle2019-05-28T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place. Good location. Exactly as described.

  • The second story suite has a private entrance and we loved the views at night and the privacy of the huge tree canopy at the back of the suite, allowing all the light in and creating a feeling of quiet and peacefulness. The suite was very clean and comfortable.

    James2019-03-25T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice place to stay. Bed was very comfortable, very clean, all the amenities you need. Very easy check in and out. No hassles, hosts were great!

    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.
  • Loved it! So cute and feels like home!

    Emma2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome spot, great location and very homey! Would def recommend

    Jessie2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • 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
  • Super cute space. Had cold filtered water in the fridge, which was a super plus for me.

    Ife-Chudeni2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • 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.

    Rhian2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • would stay here again !

    Sam2020-03-02T00:00:00Z

    ~~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!

    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!

    Janni2019-12-04T00:00:00Z
  • Adorable clean quite place with lots of hospitality, big private bathroom just a few steps across the beautiful garden deck and through the homey kitchen. Refrigerator space available. Easy street parking. Convenient area. Sky light, heater, and security system. You have your privacy yet Barb and Chris are there if you need something. And nicely priced. I would stay again next time.

    Jolene2019-11-14T00:00:00Z

    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.

    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.
  • Staying at Zan and Rainbow's teahouse was a relaxing endeavor made complete by the bedroom's sliding door which so cozily encapsulated our slumber we woke feeling as though we'd spent a night as we might have as young babes; rising fresh-eyed and buoyant.

    Max2020-03-13T00:00:00Z

    Kyle2020-03-11T00:00:00Z

  • This was a really beautiful place to stay. Thank you! Super easy check in and check out.

    Brittany2020-03-08T00:00:00Z

    Shlomo2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • 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!

    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.
  • I had a short but sweet stay at David’s Purple Door. Check in was easy and I had complete privacy from beginning to end. The view was breathtaking!

    Averi2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • 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.

    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!

    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.

    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.
  • Linda and Dan are class acts. They ensured that I felt safe and secure during a less than safe and secure time. Immaculately clean and beautiful space. I would stay there anytime I was in the Bay Area.

    Jill2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Our hosts were extremely thoughtful and kind and gracious people. The space was perfect for having a place to come back to after walking all day and sightseeing. Linda's skill with gardening and floral arrangement made the entryway a beautiful place to sit out in and made it especially nice while getting ready for a wedding. The location is close enough to walk to the Bart stations without much hassle so if you don't want to take a taxi or Uber it's a beautiful walk to the station.

    Corey2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • 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.

    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!

    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!

  • Place was beautiful, better than expected.

    Nicholas2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • 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

  • Wonderful cottage in a tranquil relaxing space. Laura and Kiran left us great tips on activities and places to eat as well as local stops to shop at. Will definitely stay here again!

    Corey2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful decor and location. Surrounded by fragrant plants and nature (multiple bird species, deer, butterflies, and a friendly cat or two).

    Christopher2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage exceeded all expectations. Everything from the tea and muffins, to waking up in the forest to the sound of the brook. We also saw deer and were visited by two very nice kitties. The location is very quiet and quaint. I recommend Laura & Kiran’s place to ANYONE looking to explore the Bay Area !

    Tim2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place for a quiet getaway. The hot tub, serene location and view of the Bay Bridge were all highlights. 100% recommend!

    Sam2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Super clean, very spacious, only thing I didn't think of that's no where else is the area has a lot of bugs. Not a huge problem inside, but there is a nearby Creek close enough that you can hear flowing water.

    Joshua2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Laura & Kiran's place well exceeded my expectations! It is truly a sanctuary amongst the trees. The hot tub is truly magical. They have created a very intentional and cozy space for their guests full of thoughtful touches! I hope to return! Thanks for everything!

    Tameron2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • The pictures do not do any justice at all. If you're contemplating between a few places in the area, this one is by far the one to experience! You will fall asleep to the sound of the creek right outside your window and wake up to chirping birds. I don't think I heard any other sounds unless I created them. There is also an incredible view of the sunset from the porch/hot tub or from the bed through the windows. Laura was so great and easy to communicate with. Even pushed my check out time so I could enjoy a few extra hours before heading out. What a great find for a last minute road trip!

    Cassie2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Laura and Kiran were fantastic hosts! If you’re looking for peace and quiet, then look no further. Cannot believe this gem is only a 25 minute train ride from SF. We will definitely try to stay here again next time we’re in town

    This a small, cute detached bedroom behind the main house, with private entrance. It is simple, quiet, charming, and private. Guests have access to all common areas of the main house. **IMPORTANT: there is NO BATHROOM IN THIS DETACHED ROOM. The guest bathroom, as well as an additional bathroom in case the guest bathroom is occupied, is inside the main house, just a few yards walk away.
    An updated 1948 house with garden views, trees, lots of light, character and charm in a quiet neighborhoody neighborhood of Menlo Park. Located at the very center of Silicon Valley, minutes (by car) from 101, the social network company, Stanford, Palo Alto, Sand Hill Road, 15min from San Francisco airport and 25-30 minutes from San Francisco and San Jose. 10min drive or 20min bike from the social network company (3 miles). 15min drive or 30min bike from Stanford campus (5 miles).
    I love that my neighborhood (the Menlo Park portion of 'North Fair Oaks') is quiet, green and 'neighborhoody'. It has a distinct character with a bit of a rural feel to it (eg no curb, few street lights, lots of trees, plenty of parking space) yet is so close to everything in the Valley, and very close to 101 for commuting. I like also that it is a mixed neighborhood of Menlo Park nestled between Atherton, Menlo Park and Redwood City, with a variety of lot sizes and a rather diverse demographic.
  • In addition to a great location and a cozy detached bedroom, the best thing about staying at Annelène’s is her communication. She gives detailed information and makes sure one understands the particulars of this cottage - it’s a single room with a separate entrance - access to the main house for the bathroom, kitchen, and living spaces just a few steps away. Everything was just as described and I enjoyed my stay.

I love this neighborhood—it is absolutely safe and such a good deal when many places on AirBnB compare to hotels these days as far as cost goes. She has opened her home up to her guests and the space is cute, homey and artistic. highly recommend! It’s my second time staying here and I lucked out because it’s usually booked!

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

    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.

    My place is good for solo adventurers and business travelers.
    The room includes a queen size bed, mini-refrigerator and microwave. It includes a tabletop Dyson fan/heater, ceiling fan and empty shelves in the closet. The central air conditioner is set at a constant 76-78 degrees in the summer.
    It's literally 2 minutes off the 580 at the Vasco Road exit, just passed the KFC, McDonald's, Weinersnitzel, and AM/PM, Chevron, and Fat Burger. Taco Bell and Jack in the Box are just over the freeway.
  • Great host! Near good restaurants. Quiet. Clean. Definitely the place to stay in Livermore!

    David2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay in Leslee’s place. Perfect for my stay commuting to the lab. Hope she will have me back!

    Joseph2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • I have been trying to stay here for a few years and finally was able to book it. My experience was fantastic! Leslee's place was so welcoming and it felt like I was staying with a friend. It was the perfect place, being 3 mins away from my son's house. The little touches, like oatmeal, cocoa, snacks and the curtain for privacy made it very comfortable. I had a relaxing time in the nice bed. Leslee was a great host, friendly, quick to communicate and yet I had as much privacy as I wanted. I hope to return again!

    Nancy2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • I couldn't have been welcomed warmer and supported better in arriving in the US. I felt in very good hands and also comfortable with Leslee and in the nice room. It's as much fun to stay there as it is nice to also have private sphere. Absolutely worth a stay.

    Eva2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • Lelsee's place was a great value, great location, great response time. She is a very easy person to share a space with. I would definitely stay again, in fact I am staying again!

    David2019-12-23T00:00:00Z

    Jonathan2019-12-17T00:00:00Z

    Christie2019-12-13T00:00:00Z

    This is our nice, new and adorable cottage in the backyard. Beautiful house, very private and clean. 340 sq feet. Biking distance to Stanford University and top Silicon Valley companies as well as to Caltrain station. Close to freeway 101, 84 and 880. Sorry, no pets, no TV, no smoking!
    This is a cozy studio apartment in a stand-alone cottage. The studio has a full kitchen and bathroom with stand-up tiled shower. It is very private and quiet.
  • great spot!

    Allen2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Helen's place is very well positioned close to Highway 101, and it's a straight shot down University Ave to Palo Alto and Stanford. The small house in her back yard is self-contained and a parking space is provided on the drive. Fully equipped kitchen, bathroom, etc. The only downside is slightly patchy wifi coverage.

    Steve2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • The place was absolutely great. It was clean, quite and with a nice kitchenette. The location is 10 minutes from Stanford. Helen was responsive, and overall it was a great experience! I’ll definitely stay here next time! P.S. The room has a nice bookshelf too! I read Solaris there (not sufficiently better than the movie)

    Alireza2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • A very convenient and charming place to stay in Palo Alto. It was sparkling clean and had all the amenities we were looking for. Perfect location - easy access from the highway and pretty much down the street from Stanford. Helen was the perfect host and responded to my questions promptly. Check- in and check-out were very easy. I wish we’d stayed long enough to enjoy the charming patio. Next time!

    Vibha2020-02-19T00:00:00Z

    Susan2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • This space was so cute and I loved how many different products there were in the bathroom! We did have some trouble figuring out how to turn the heat but we eventually figured it out--though I'm sure we would have gotten it earlier if we had remembered to ask! Helen was a great host! Overall we enjoyed our stay.

    Meghna2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Helen’s place was cozy and lovely. Lots of windows and light, and a nice little patio and garden to look out on. It was clean and quiet with a comfortable bed, a perfect spot for my quick visit down to Mountain View.

    Valeria2020-03-03T00:00:00Z

Parking is super easy (I usually stay in the city, so this was a huge plus!) and then you walk through a lovely gate & courtyard to the small detached apartment unit. Very clean and comfortable space in a safe neighborhood - hosts went above and beyond in communication. Would stay again anytime I need to be in the area!

    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 location, beautiful, comfortable and clean place and friendly host. Highly recommended!

    Eamon2020-03-06T00:00:00Z

  • 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!

    Our sanitized, private 2 bedroom suite is located in a suburb of San Francisco and Berkeley called Lafayette in the East Bay. We neighbor Walnut Creek and are close to Hwys. 24/680. We are a 5-8 minute drive to the Lafayette BART station. San Francisco is a 25 minute train ride and when there is no traffic a quick 30 minute drive to downtown SF (with traffic add another 15-20 minutes). CAL bound for a game? No problem as we are close to the 24 freeway and a quick drive into Berkeley.
    This clean and sanitized no-smoking (smoking and vaping allowed outside patio area) 700 square foot 2-bedroom guest suite offers a private getaway for those visiting the San Francisco Bay Area. Lafayette is out of the Bay Area fog belt and is much warmer and sunnier than San Francisco during the summer. Easy access to the wine country is under an hour, and great hiking and biking trails are within minutes. Visiting family in Rossmoor? We are minutes away. Cal Berkeley and St. Mary's colleges are nearby as well. Deemed as one of the safest towns in California, Lafayette will not disappoint you. We provide 2 private bedrooms, a full bath with a shower/tub combo with extra tall shower head, a den with couch and 55” cable HDTV with all premium channels like HBO, Showtime, etc. as well as PAC12 and ESPN sports packages. Much like a hotel, we have no full kitchen, however we do have a microwave, mini-fridge, electric tea kettle and a Keurig coffee maker. No laundry service. We do have forced air heating and air conditioning. Free on street parking available for those with a car. Bedroom #1 is a spacious room with a comfortable King size bed as well as a large corner desk for those business travelers. Free WiFi is provided. Have an infant? No worries as we have a travel crib for your use. Just let us know and we will place it in this room. Bedroom #2 is smaller but offers a Queen bed with a wonderful, comfortable memory foam topper and plush bedding. A view of Mt. Diablo greets you with each passing of the window. Sandwiched between these two private bedrooms is a modern full size bathroom complete with a shower/tub unit with extra high shower head for those tall folks. Depending on the weather enjoy lounging outside on the patio set with your morning cup of coffee or a quick game of Scrabble.
    We are in a quiet residential neighborhood which has a direct view of Mt. Diablo from your deck and patio area. We are a quick 5 minute drive into downtown Walnut Creek with great shopping - Nordstrom, Nieman Marcus, Macy's, Pottery Barn, etc. as well as a great nightlife and restaurant scene. St. Mary's College in Moraga, Berkeley and Oakland are a short 15-20 minute drive away. Note: Quiet hours are after 11:00 PM
  • A must rent and experience. Quiet and clean place.

  • My family and I had a lovely stay at Jennifer‘s unit. It started with a very warm welcome from Jennifer and we didn’t miss anything at the unit. Jennifer also helped us right away whenever we had a question. If you want to stay in a modern and cosy place, not in the city of San Francisco but still close to it, I can definitely recommend it.

    Janina2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Jennifer is always very responsive, flexible on check-in times and overall just a great host. Her place is a nice refuge during a busy week!

    Ines2020-02-29T00:00:00Z

Jennifer goes out of her way to make sure you have anything and everything you could need, including sending a video to guide you to exactly where the space is located, making it super easy to find! She had tons of great snacks and beverages waiting for us, the bed was so incredibly comfortable and the space is immaculate. We really enjoyed our stay!

    This is a spacious, bright, charming room with garden view, French doors, deck, very comfortable double/full-size bed, vanity, desk, plenty of closet and shelf space, in a beautiful, quiet home surrounded by plants and trees in Menlo Park, minutes from the 101 and 15min drive from Stanford.
    An updated 1948 house with garden views, trees, lots of light, character and charm in a quiet neighborhoody neighborhood of Menlo Park. Located at the very center of Silicon Valley, minutes (by car) from 101, the social network company, Stanford, Palo Alto, Sand Hill Road, 15min from San Francisco airport and 25-30 minutes from San Francisco and San Jose. 10min drive or 20min bike from the social network company (3 miles). 15min drive or 30min bike from Stanford campus (5 miles).
    I love that my neighborhood (the Menlo Park portion of 'North Fair Oaks') is quiet, green and 'neighborhoody'. It has a distinct character with a bit of a rural feel to it (eg no curb, few street lights, lots of trees, plenty of parking space) yet is so close to everything in the Valley, and very close to 101 for commuting. I like also that it is a mixed neighborhood of Menlo Park nestled between Atherton, Menlo Park and Redwood City, with a variety of lot sizes and a rather diverse demographic.
  • Wonderful place to stay, fantastic host, lovely area and perfect accommodations! Would highly recommend!

    Ofelia2020-03-13T00:00:00Z

    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.
  • Gracious hosts with conscientious responses, clean space, easy check-in and check-out and convenient location.

    This room was originally the master bedroom before the previous owner added on to the house. Our typical guest has grandkids or children that live in our area, is doing work at one of the East Bay companies on a short contract or is traveling from just about anywhere in the world and is looking to be close to SF at a very reasonable price. We're a family home so you can hear our family when we are in the kitchen. Our kids have grown up doing Airbnb so they work to be as quiet as they can when guests are in the Sweet Suite. LOCATION: Our home is nestled in a quaint town called Lafayette in the East Bay of San Francisco. We live right next to the Lafayette bike/walking trail which goes between Lafayette and Moraga and makes for a lovely stroll. Grocery Stores (Whole Foods, TraderJoes and Safeway), drugstore (CVS, Walgreens), coffee shops (local, Starbucks, Peets, etc.), boutiques and many lovely restaurants within 1.5 miles (3-5 minute drive). We are a very short drive to Orinda, Moraga and Walnut Creek for more shopping and restaurants - and on the same road as St. Mary's College (5 minutes). We are a 30 minute drive or train ride to San Francisco, and a 15 minute drive to Berkeley and Oakland. Lafayette Bart Station is 2 miles away (5 minutes). Road trips to various beautiful Northern California locations are also convenient - San Francisco (30 minutes), Napa & Sonoma (less than 1 hour), Marin, Santa Cruz (1.5 hours), Half Moon Bay (1.25 hours), Carmel & Monterey (2 hours), Yosemite (3-3.5 hours), Lake Tahoe (3.5 hrs away.) ROOM: The room is large with bay windows, a large, new shower and renovated bathroom. This room was the original master bedroom in the house before renovations and can comfortably sleep 2 people in the queen bed. It has a private entrance into the backyard. We will provide key to separate entrance for easy and private in/out access. In addition to the cozy Queen bed with wooden frame, we also have custom shelving, which houses a TV with cable as well as a host of books to read while in our home. Drawers are empty and available for your clothes, as well as a walk in closet with hangers. Wireless internet is also available. Extra treats: free parking, no cleaning fee. AVAILABILITY: If the room looks available on the Calendar on Airbnb, it's most likely available!
    Very quiet neighborhood. We only have neighbors on one side of the house. This room faces our backyard with an eye level view of the hill behind our home.
  • A perfect spot for my weekend away! Immaculate room, private entrance, private bathroom. I enjoyed the setting in a wooded area, as well as the nearby walking trail. Thank you, Terra & Chris!

    *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.

    Sarah2020-03-09T00:00:00Z

    Alex2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • 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

    Vinay2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • I can't say enough about what a lovely and calm oasis Kevin and his wife have created for their guests. I booked their stylish apartment as a place to stay during my first week at a new position in San Jose and loved coming back to this quiet neighborhood after work. The apartment is spotlessly clean (probably my number one concern when I travel), every possible amenity is included and the space just felt comfortable and welcoming. Given that this week I was on my own, I especially appreciated that they kept in touch with me, checking in to see how I was doing. As my husband and I continue to house hunt in a new town, if I have the chance, I plan to stay here again.

    Heather2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Kevin and Sakorn's Airbnb arrangement is superb and matches everything the description says. The place is very clean and tidy and has everything you will need for temporary and extended stays. Our stay spanned over Christmas and New Years and they baked us a cake as well as gifting us wine for the special occasions. If you are looking for a quality stay this is definitely it as the hosts are friendly and thoughtful and the place locates in a quiet neighborhood.

    Claire2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment was just as described and sparkling clean. Excellent location and nice, quiet neighborhood. Great value for the area. Hosts are personable and I plan on staying again when in the area.

    Jennifer2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • You can’t go wrong staying here. It’s a lovely place in an upscale neighborhood. We were here for a 49ers game and the location was great. We have stayed at many AirBnB’s over the last few years and this one is right up there with the best we’ve stayed in. The hosts Sakorn and Kevin have thought of everything you could need and have supplied many amenities you don’t find in other places. They were quick to respond and checked in to be sure we were comfortable. The apartment is spotless and the bed very comfortable. Highly recommend.

    Liz2019-12-17T00:00:00Z
  • Kevin and Sakorn’s place is great! They are super helpful and hospitable. The space is larger than I expected, but also very cozy. Everything is very clean organized. Thanks again!

    Faraz2019-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful and comfortable place to stay, packed with thoughtful touches and hosted by the most thoughtful hostess ever. An elegant neighborhood, with a bus stop just ten mins away, easy access to BART and the Tesla factory. Lots of beautiful hiking within minutes!
