Interaction with Guests

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • It was very nice. I felt welcomed and comfortable. Her house was very clean and could feel like home. Neighborhood wasn't as bad as I thought, I parked on street and my car was fine. Michelle is very nice and an excellent host. Even though it was my first bnb experience I'm pretty sure it will be at the top.

  • I stayed two weeks at Michelle´s place. Everything went very good. I already wrote a review for the place. But I can say again that is a nite place! thanks Michelle, hope you´re doing fine!

  • I stayed two weeks at Michelle's place and I can say that is a very nice spot in south Oakland. The house is beautiful, big and comfortable, organized and clean. I enjoyed very much her backyard almost every day (and she also has darts to play with!) Michelle was very nice to me showing me around some mexican stores in the neighborhood, also in Alameda -the island next to Fruitvale- and even Chinatown. We shared some meals and it was entertaining ´cause she´s vegan and know a lot of stuff about food. And Thea is such a loving cat!
    Is important to know that the room itself faces the street, so it can be a bit noisy from time to time. Public transportation is near around but if you can´t wait or easily fell unsafe will be better for you to have a car.

    Response from Michelle:

    Alas, there is no such thing as south Oakland...but Fruitvale is accurate. :)

  • Michelle was a great host. My room was clean , comfortable all that I needed was provided. I give Michelle extra points for actually having an iron and iron board available in the room, for me the place was conveniently located near where I needed to go. Great place to stay and definitely would come back. Thanks Michelle.

  • I had a great stay at Michelle's house and would definitely recommend it to anyone. The room and house is stylish and comfortable. There is also plenty of space for food in the fridge and cupboard as well as for clothes and baggage in the room. It's easy to step outside and relax on the porch or in the backyard. The BART station is a 15-20 min. walk but I would recommend driving or taking a taxi, the BART station has a lot of parking (there are two lots for $1 and another for $5 for the day).

Support Coordinator for Adults with Disabilities/34. I work full time and take online courses, so I'm often super busy. When I'm not, I love to garden, cook, attend yoga, ride my motorcycles, and share dinner or a bottle of wine with my friends. I'm a healthy eater, believe in sustainability, and am pretty low key. I'm mostly vegan, but you don't have to be, and are welcome to cook whatever you like while staying here. While I prefer vanilla to chocolate, I prefer chocolate to most other things - the darker the better.
