My favourite air bnb stay so far. Barbara is an ideal host, always happy to help and give advise when asked. The room is really comfortable, spacious and clean. The location is also good, walkable distance from the Bart station and great food places a short walk or uber / Lyft ride away. This place is really good value for money and Barbara is lovely. I would definitely stay here again!

Barbara was an awesome host. When I was thinking of dinner, she suggested a sushi place that was waking distance that was very yummy. The place was just as described. I had a great stay!

Barbara's place was super cute, clean and close to transportation into the city. We didn't stay in the room much we basically just slept there but it was nice. Easy location and Barbara is awesome. She gave us some great recommendations and was just very chill. I'd recommend this space.

Great place for a short stay in San Francisco, Barabaras home is really clean and not far from downtown.

Highly recommend! Picturesque home in Oakland, very clean and comfortable. Barbara is a pleasure to chat with, and was kind enough to drive me and my suitcase to the BART station at the end of my stay! The surrounding area can be a little rough around the edges, but as a woman traveling alone I still felt comfortable walking to and from BART. The location is very convenient for taking advantage of public transport.

Gorgeous garden space, cozy-yet-spacious room and easy walk to BART/Temescal hotspots/local favorites. I loved staying here and getting to know Barbara! Would definitely come back to this home. Thanks for a great stay. :)

Single, white female-nurse by day and an aspiring urban farmer on my days off. I travel whenever I can, both domestically and internationally. I have a lot of interests too numerous to mention and have lived in the Bay area my entire adult life.
