The little cottage is exactly as cute as we expected it from the pictures. You are close to downtown oakland and use the Bart to go to San Francisco! It was quite and clean and really cosy. Chris and Barb are really nice and offered us a check in that fits to our timetable. Chris even came from work to hand us the key. We can recommend this cottage :)

Barbara hat uns begrüßt, das kleine Gartenhaus ist sehr hübsch eingerichtet mit einem ultragemütlichen Bett. Zu den umliegenden Bahnstationen haben wir ein Taxi genommen, von dort aus kommt man sehr einfach mit der Bahn nach San Francisco. Eine sehr schöne, ruhige Unterkunft.

Our stay in Oakland was great, it was the perfect base to go over to San Francisco. The communication with Chris was great!

We absolutely loved staying with Chris and Barb. Even though Oakland and SF are quite busy, the cottage was so quiet - we slept great! Chris and Barb are very welcoming and helpful. We also loved little Ace! Great place to stay for a quick visit to the Bay Area.

This is the perfect cozy cottage for travelers who plan on being out and exploring The Bay all day. Just the basics for a place to rest (on a very comfortable bed) were all we needed. The neighborhood is very quiet and safe. Getting to the nearest BART station was about a 7 min drive or a 25 min walk. We took LYFT rides back when we were beat tired at the end of the day. Chris and Barb were lovely hosts with great communication. We felt welcomed in their home. The private bathroom is located in the main house and is stocked with clean towels and basic toiletries. We slept like babies here every night and would recommend this AirBnB to anyone looking for a comfortable and safe place to rest their heads in the Oakland area. If you are lucky, you may catch a glimpse of their adorable dog!
