All our guests are unique and so our interactions w/guests vary from a 'help yourself we're not home' to 'private/quiet/relaxing' to 'dinner & movies' to 'family setting' to 'icebreaker show and tells' to 'come with us to this event' to 'party animal til the sun comes up'.
We travel a lot and so we have the place setup where you can help yourself to the linens, w/d, kitchen, living room, etc.

Very comfortable room with private bathroom in lovely modern apartment. Char kindly let me leave my luggage at lunch time, although check-in wasn't till 5pm. Good location, would definitely stay again if I needed to be in Oakley.
What a great place! Char and Zen are great hosts. Easy to coordinate with and super accommodating.
We went to a show at the Fox. Their place is perfect for dinner, show and over night.
Char & Zen's place was super comfortable. They are great hosts, really friendly and accommodating. Their building is cool, too. It has a gym and a cafe with a printer. It's right in the heart of downtown Oakland - super convenient. Great experience. Cute dogs. Highly recommended.
Char and Zen are such great hosts. Good conversation, really engaging people! The room is clean and cozy, and you have your own private bathroom. Blessings to you both, thank you!
Char+Zen's place was perfect for me. They're great hosts, the whole place was clean and tidy, and their dogs are sweet and cute. On top of all that, they're friendly and generous - fun to talk with but also respectful of privacy. I'll stay with them again happily if I get the chance.
Char and Zen are great hosts! They do this so often and it shows - also they are polite, friendly, and accommodating - I got in pretty late to Oakland and they were super helpful. Very nice apt. and cute dogs! Thanks!
Beautiful, modern apartment in a very nice neighborhood. I didn't spend much time with the hosts but they were considerate and quiet.
Char & Zen are two super awesome people!!!! Very friendly and welcoming. Their apartment is gorgeous, and impeccably kept! They are very welcoming and warm, and their space reflects their sweet, kind, and fun personalities. They also have two super adorable dogs that love to cuddle if you want them to :) I had great sleep in the comfy bed, and loved the bright sunshine streaming in the house during the day. Thanks a lot, guys!!!
We stayed at Char and Zens place for 2 days during our road trip to California. They have the most amazing apartment in Oakland just a short drive away from SF downtown and the Pier Area. The house was impeccably kept, very neat and clean and well done up. Even though they were not at home during the time we were there, everything in the house was graciously offered to us. The three of us were very comfortable. The area is very safe and active. Definitely stay here if your visit SF. Thank you Char and Zen for the great experience and we hope to actually meet the two of the next time!
Char & Zen were fantastic hosts! Directions were very clear with no issues checking in and understanding house rules/amenities/etc. The area was super safe with so many different food and entertainment options within walking distance. They made efforts to hang out with us several times during our stay and were super hospitable, even sharing some home-cooked Filipino food with us...mmmm! They're full of life and are really easy-going, positive people. I would def stay here again. Thanks for everything!
