You're home away from home at LOLA's: A big comfy bed, couches & table seating, private entry & bath (shower), garden view & access, fridge & microwave, kettle & coffee/tea makings, TV (Basic U-verse), wifi & free and easy parking.

The space

You will find LOLA's comfortable, private, clean, and spacious with plenty of extra amenities. Guests have found it peaceful and welcoming, a great spot for relaxing, and a convenient home base. The suite is on the lower level of our house - we live upstairs. You can expect signs and sounds of life around you, but we keep it to a minimum.

LOLA's guests are friends and family from out of town, commuting students, sports fans, culture buffs, and travelers who want a conveniently located home base. The suite accommodates 1 - 2 adults.

Guest access

Your suite is on the ground level with a private entrance, facing the garden. Guests have commented that "the garden is absolutely wonderful!" They sometimes wish they had more time to enjoy the outside seating and natural feel - we even saw one guest painting a watercolor of the expansive view.

Interaction with guests

We are happy to help a lot, a little, or not at all. Guests find us warm hosts willing to answer questions you might have about the area, and generous with suggestions for places to go and things to do. At the same time we are happy to give you your privacy if you so wish.

Other things to note

Our two small hypoallergenic pups are ridiculously friendly but equally skilled at giving our guests their space - they are not allowed in your room. We are sorry to say, there is no wheelchair access.

Lisa was always available, very quick to respond to messages and very prompt in helping us when we needed her. Her backyard garden is also an added bonus! Its definitely a soothing oasis that you can enjoy when you're not out and about. Only small factor to consider is you are living in the basement area attached to the house, so you can hear when someone is walking above you and you can hear the shower/water running when someone is using it upstairs. However, its not bad, and nothing too bothersome.

The garden outside the room was beautiful and the room itself was super cute. Lisa communicated well and gave really good instructions. A couple things I would have liked however was a little more quietness; I had to wake up at 4:30am for training so I needed to sleep by 9:30pm but they had guests over until that time who were quite loud. I wanted to catch up on sleep the next day but couldn't because there was construction next door that I wasn't aware of until getting there and there were debris at the side entrance leading to your room. I would have also preferred having some sort of lock or latch on the door that connects to the main house just to have that sense of privacy. But all in all, the home was super nice and would've enjoyed it more if I had more time to spend there

Lola was a very great host! Her pups were very friendly and entertaining and their home is wonderful for someone who is traveling alone or with a companion or two.

We enjoyed our stay at Lisa's ground floor apartment. We slept very well in the comfortable bed. The room was spacious, everything was very clean and the refrigerator, coffee and tea fixings were a nice touch. We particularly enjoyed breakfast in the lovely garden on our last morning. Recommended!

Lisa User ProfileLisa is a superhost.

Bay Area natives, Oakland is the perfect city for us - we encourage folks to come experience all that our city offers (art, culture, sports arenas, hiking trails, and great weather most of the year). We enjoy local restaurants, theater, classical and world music, art and history museums, cultural centers, and outdoor activities in the Easy Bay and San Francisco. I teach at a local community college and Sigi works at an art museum in San Francisco. We live with two rescue pups, and are enjoying our empty nest now that the kids have flown the coop. We look forward to sharing our house and our garden with Airbnb guests.
