We are located in a lovely and quiet residential neighborhood with plenty of free street parking, just a couple blocks from some of the best things Oakland has to offer:

- Not far from the uber hip Uptown District in Downtown Oakland

We are close to all major freeways and AC transit stops are just a block away on Grand Ave. BART is about a mile away.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • My husband and I were very happy with Amy and Jeph's garden level apt., comfortable, clean and in a very pretty hilltop neighborhood. Parking the car on their street was no problem. We especially enjoyed our separate path entrance through their beautiful garden. Jeph and Amy were friendly and welcoming; we did not interact with them much since we were there for visiting our daughter, who also lives near Lake Merritt

  • Amy and Jeph are type of hosts you'd hope for on your Airbnb stay. First off, they're quick to respond. I was in a situation where previous plans fell through and needed a place the same day. They were able to make that happen without any problems.

    The property is awesome. It's everything you'd want in a vacation rental plus some. It is comfortable and relaxing. They have all of the amenities and it is clear that they have taken the time to pay attention to all of the details.

    The location is great as well. It's quiet and safe but walkable to one of the coolest neighborhoods in Oakland. There are numerous restaurants and bars in the area. It's a place I'd want to come back to again and again!

  • Amy and Jeph's place books up fast and for good reason--this apartment is exceptional. The apartment is thoughtfully stocked, furnished and decorated. I felt at home as soon as I walked in. The kitchen is very well equipped, with good pans and utensils. The sheets and towels were of high quality. The bed was very comfortable. We appreciated the work space were my husband and I could hook up our computers. The apartment was very clean. The backyard is beautifully landscaped and maintained. As a gardener myself, I was thrilled to be a well cared for yard. The neighborhood is beautiful and we enjoyed our daily walks through it. It seems as if Amy and Jeph have thought of everything. Amy and Jeph were extraordinarily responsive.

  • The place was extremely nice, comfortable, with all amenities. Hosts were particularly flexible as I rented the place to have my brother and his wife stay nearby my house for several days. I will definitely be using this place as my second guest-room in the future. Highly recommended.

  • Amy and Jeph's "stylish apartment" was indeed stylish. It provided us with a comfortable home while visiting Oakland to welcome the birth of our new grandson. The apartment is bright and well-equipped. The Gatzert's garden is lovely and we enjoyed its springtime fragrance! The neighborhood felt secure and parking was never an issue. Amy was prompt in all her communications with us. We highly recommend this rental.

  • Amy and Jeph provided a very nice and comfortable space. Enjoyed the nice grounds, private entrance, and the completeness of the accommodations. Short walk down to Grand Avenue where there are a number of nice places to dine. Really enjoyed our 2 weeks stay. Thanks!

  • Amy and Jeph were gracious hosts and have an impeccable and comfortable little apartment for you to stay in. The decor is great, all of the amenities you would expect out of an Airbnb are there (and then some!) It's also supremely well located with plenty of street parking if you have a car during your stay in Oakland.

    Can't say enough how much I enjoyed my time there. Thanks again, Amy and Jeph.

  • Amy and Jeph's apartment is great! Would highly recommend it to anyone looking in the area. Had everything you would need, with a has a great vibe. Lots of sunlight, even though it's a basement suite. Really enjoyed the record player/record collection and Amy is super great to deal with.

  • Amy and Jeph were hospitable, kind and easy to communicate with. Their lovely home is situated in a friendly neighborhood close to a beautiful and walkable part of Oakland with neat shops and good restaurants. The apartment has everything a couple needs while on vacation. We had a perfect trip and will definitely plan to stay here the next time we're in town.

We are a married couple that are recent transplants to Oakland and we love it here. Jeph is a camera assistant in the motion picture industry and Amy works in advertising. We love to travel and are little obsessive about music.
