Was one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen in AirBnB. Gene was very supportive and the studio has everything imaginable.
The atmosphere is so romantic - me and my girlfriend will come back here one day to make a baby.
The Yellow Door Studio was an excellent place to stay! I am a veteran Airbnb user and would highly recommend Gene's place. In my experience it rates high for cleanliness, amenities, and neighborhood. The surroundings were beautiful. Make sure you have a car to get around. Enjoy your stay!
Very nice and comfortable studio apartment which was exactly as described. It was clean, cozy, and in a nice neighborhood - perfect for our one week stay. Great entertainment center and the windows looked out onto the lush green landscaping of the front yard. Gene and Joann were very friendly and accommodating. We would definitely return here on our next trip out to Oakland/SF.
Excellent and easy communication with Gene. Coffee, tea, condiments etc provided. Plus little local chocolates out for our arrival. Lovely accommodation and very nice neighborhood.
My stay at Gene's lovely basement studio was a complete pleasure. The four big windows looking out onto the front yard let in tons of life, and the space is charming. The yard is like a deciduous jungle and beautiful to look out to. I hope to come again! And the neighborhood is lovely.
Lovely, well-appointed studio! We had a cozy stay. Would definitely come back.
Yellow door studio was just as described. It is located in a nice quite part of the city. We only had about a 25 minute drive to Sf which worked out perfect. We had a quiet comfy place to sleep after exploring the city of SF.
