Wake up with the chickens in the morning! Quiet room in a sunny house in North Oakland walking distance to main transportation hub; 15 minutes by car/BART to San Francisco; easy, ample on-street parking; Wi-fi, Spanish/English-speaker. Hip neighborhoods of Rockridge, Temescal, and Emeryville closeby.
gourmet ghetto three blocks away; Korean, Ethiopian, North African, Burmese, MacDonalds!
There's no key to the front door and I will provide the combination when we talk.
PLEASE don't text me, I'm a Luddite so I only use the telephone; check my email only once a day sometimes!, And lastly, (I'll spare you the "water is our most precious resource"spiel) but please limit your shower to 5 minutes once a day. There are laundry facilities nearby; you're welcome to heat up your food in the toaster oven or microwave, and I provide coffee or tea (or a beer) in the morning.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Barbara. Her home is a tranquil oasis and located walking distance from Bart and the hip Temescal neighborhood. She welcomed us with genuine warmth and we felt very comfortable. Our stay was short yet very positive.
We recommend Barbara's accommodation.
We got to Barbara's place before she was back from work and she just let us let ourselves in - to be greeted by three lovely cats and a very cozy bedroom for our stay the next two nights. She was very welcoming and the place was very clean and comfortable. Gave us some tips about getting back out of the city heading north which saved us a lot of time - it's hard to time your trip to traffic that you aren't familiar with - so a helpful host during a roadtrip is essential!
I had a great stay Bar in Barbara's apartment. The apartment is designed with love for detail and impressive furnitures. It was very clean and comfortable. Barbara was a wonderful host.
Barbara I wish you the best and I hope to see you soon!
We had a lovely stay at Barbara's. It was the first time we'd stayed in a shared space through Airbnb and it couldn't have been better. Barbara made us feel so welcome and comfortable. I would definitely recommend her and stay again the next time we are in the area.
Barbara was really welcoming. She gave us suggestions of restaurants and made us coffee in the morning. Her house is very light and airy and she has a beautiful garden.
house-her kitchen and garden was very wide .
Host-She is very very kind. When we told her our next country-Mexico-we would visit, she introduced her Mexican friend to us.
Barbara was a wonderful host to my mom who was visiting the area. She was incredibly responsive, available, and attentive. Her space was exactly as it is described and pictured, and she was very generous with sharing the space with her guests.
