Welcome to Oakland,
Frank and Mackenzie
Frank and Mackenzie were terrific hosts! Really enjoyed my stay. Beautiful home, friendly faces every day, couldn't ask for more. Plenty of great places to explore around the area as well - just a 15-20 minute walk from two awesome street shop areas with Temescal and Rockridge close by!
Frank and Mackenzie are fantastic hosts! I stayed with them for three months while working and internship in downtown Oakland. Their home was charming, clean, and well prepared for Airbnb guests. Conveniently located on major bus routes, I was able to get to/from work and groceries stores. BART is also within walking distance for trips to SF. Overall, very positive experience and would highly recommend!
Mackenzie and Frank were wonderful hosts! Before I arrived they provided information about the area, how to get to the house from the airport, etc which was very helpful.
The photos don't do the house justice! It's beautifully decorated and the everything was really clean. It's also really spacious so you don't feel at all cramped. It really does feel like a home rather than just a place to sleep.
It was great getting to know Mackenzie and Frank during my stay, they are both so friendly but are also happy to let you enjoy the space of their lovely house as you wish!
The house is a short walk from the Bart station and bus stops so the location is ideal.
I'd recommend Mackenzie and Frank's house to anyone thinking of staying in Oakland! Thanks for a wonderful stay :)
Frank and Mackenzie are very friendly and welcoming hosts. They were always open for communication and gave a lot of useful information about living in Oakland.
The house is very nice, accurate and clean. All descriptions and photos at the web page are totally correct.
Neighbourhood is quite safe and quiet. The place is really quiet at night time and is perfect for sleeping.
Overall, great place to stay, highly recommended! I really wanted to stay longer, but unnfortunately the room was already booked by somebody else.
I had a great time at Mackenzie's place. Nice location, clean, very friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again :)
Mackenzie is a great hostess. She is helpful with finding your way around the neighborhood and surrounding cities. Mackenzie caters and will sometimes leave goodies to try, so thoughtful. Her home is right off a major road and in walking distance to public transit. Glad I found her place to stay while working in Oakland!
I had a wonderful time at Mackenzie's place. The room is bright and beautiful. She is a warm and generous hostess, very helpful if you need advice. I loved her style. The other guests seemed to have felt the same way, comfortable and at home. The neighborhood is beautiful and friendly. I felt safe and enjoyed walking everywhere. The closest BART sation is Ashby, a nice walk of about 15 min. away. From there you get anywhere in San Francisco or the Bay Area,
I do recommend Mackenzie's to anyone who plans to stay in the Bay Area.
