North Oakland is a vibrant, family friendly area. There are many world class restaurants within a 5-10 minute drive--as well as easily accessed by public transit (bus line a block away, BART a 10 minute walk away) or walking. The heart of San Francisco is a convenient 20 minute BART ride away. World class university UC Berkeley is just over a mile away. Easy street parking, no permits required. No extra guest fees for kids. Well behaved pets okay with additional security deposit. We love to host, and can give you great tips on local restaurants and things to do, or just give you your peace and quiet. Thanks!
North Oakland rocks! It is family friendly, with lots of great restaurants and cafes. There is always easy access to something fun to do. The weather is generally great, they don't call us the sunny side of the bay for nothing!
Public transit is super convenient. We have AC transit that goes by a block away, and we are an easy walk to both Ashby and Rockridge BART.
No smoking, please be respectful of the flat. Thank you!
Jennifer's place was great - the neighborhood was conveniently located, the apartment was clean and our family of four stayed there comfortably. The Roku access (amazon, netflix, hulu) was unexpected and pretty awesome. We were able to interact briefly with Jennifer and she was friendly and helpful, but also definitely gave us our space. so it was best of all worlds.
Jennifer's flat was ideal for me and my two boys. We were out to visit family and the place had everything we needed: kitchen with supplies, separate rooms and seclusion and privacy.
Jennifer and her husband were very nice, and the neighborhood is close enough to so many things, it worked out great. Would definitely be interested in staying there again!
(oh, and there was some nice Peet's coffee, shortbread and wine waiting for us when we we arrived which made us feel at home!)
I stayed at Jennifer's place for one night while I was in the Bay Area. Ususally parking was on the street. But since it was Saturday Jennifer was nice enough to had left the drive way open for me so I didn't have to hassle finding a parking spot. When I walked in I was greeted with a nice , open, and clean place. I really like the fact it was a short drive to downtown Berkeley. I would stay here again. Thanks Jennifer.
A nice place, parking was ok and the people were nice and left us alone, tough they were just upstairs.
Found great treats upon our arrival. The flat provided more than enough space for our small family. Walked the mile up to College Ave. each morning to get Peets and some wonderful pastries at La Farine. Super close to a great Whole Foods as well. Street was calm and quiet. One minor issue with the water temperature which was fixed within an hour of me reaching out to the host.
About the Host, Jennifer
Welcome! We are a family of 4, and we have lived in Oakland for 13 years. Jen is a Registered Nurse at a local hospital, and Andy is an Educational Therapist. We have two energetic girls, ages 6 and (almost) 1.
We love to hike and camp, and love sharing great California outdoor experiences with our guests, and there are so many to choose from! We grew up near Yosemite, and are passionate about the Sierras. We love living in the East Bay (the sunny side!), with it's amazing culture, restaurants, and easy access to so many things to do.
We try to give our guests plenty of space when we host them, but we love to get to know you better if it works for you! We enjoy cooking, and love getting to know others over a shared meal.
