This was the second time my mother stayed at Gene's. It's very clean and is the perfect little apartment for her to stay at while visiting us in our neighborhood. Our house is too small to have guests. Gene's studio has all the amenities like TV, internet, small stove, refrigerator, and even some biscotti, which is her favorite cookie!

The studio is great, and everything you need is provided. You will need a car to get around, but the essentials (grocery store, Starbucks, ect.) are within walking distance. Will definitely stay here again if I return to the area!

Great guest unit in a nice residential area, a short drive down to some of the best areas in Oakland. A perfect getaway for a good night's sleep. Plus we were greeted with cupcakes - who can beat that???

Quiet neighborhood with easy access to freeways. There are a couple of restaurants in walk-able distance.

Genes place is in a quiet neighborhood with plenty of parking. It's comfortable and clean. Maybe a little outdated. It's just a 3 min drive to restaurants and shops and a Peetes coffee.

Gene is a good and thoughtful host. The neighborhood is quiet, walkable, and safe. The gas fireplace does a nice job of heating the room and is cozy. It was great for us as the location was near family we were visiting. The bed is cozy for 2, but we slept comfortably. It was nice being able to make toast and coffee in the morning. There is a stove and small fridge if you want to cook. There is no closet or place to hang clothes, which is only a problem if you have other than casual clothes

Response from Gene:
Apparently they missed seeing the closet behind the front door.
