I spent a week at Claudia's and the room was exactly what was described. Claudia was a wonderful host, who welcomed me the day I arrived and even drove me to the shops and showed me around. The room has an amazing bed, like seriously I want the bed. The micro kitchen had a starter breakfast which was more than enough for me. The lake merritt area is also very accessible to San Francisco, which makes this airbnb perfect for the working professional. I'd definitely stay here again..
Claudia and Mark greeted us upon arrival which she graciously allowed us to do a bit early. The room was just as pictured: very clean and, above all quiet. Sharing a bathroom was a non-issue and the kitchen area is clean with all the fixings for coffee, tea, and a continental breakfast.
Well located to take a stroll/jog around the lake or visit the many restaurants along the boulevard.
We recommend staying with Claudia and would happily stay at Euclid manor again.
Another wonderful stay! Claudia Ward and family always make our trips to Oakland and our visits at Euclid Manor so warm and worth while. We rented two rooms - both clean and lovely. All aspects of our stay went well! Euclid Manor sets the bar for Air BnB travel and that is why it is always pleasure to stay there again and again.
I had a wonderful experience staying here. The room is exactly as advertised: clean and quiet with plenty of space. Claudia and her family were very welcoming and went the extra mile to make sure I was taken care of even though I was arriving very late. I'm looking forward to staying here again next time I'm in town!

About the Host, Claudia
Love attention to detail and excellent service. After living in Asia for many years I really appreciate the subtle luxuries in life that make a difference. Friendly, artistic and caring are qualities that best describe my nature. We started using AirBnB to help fund our online video start-up, Minimash. Sadly the business didn't happen, but we stuck with Airbnb. Love cooking, baking, DIY, crafts, cheese, micro-beers, art, photography and all things beautiful in any shape and form.
For the perfect Massage. Within walking distance from the house - just one block south.
Excellent service, walking distance from the house. The Trout Salad is the best with a White Alegash beer! Reasonably priced
