ensuring it's like nothing you've ever experienced before...
Everything was clean, spacious and overall a great pick! Thank you for having me.
Lovely space, simple and comforting. Great location to services in the area. Fantastic Saturday Farmers' Market! Certainly would stay here again in the future!
Beautiful, charming, clean space! Enjoyed our stay very much! Thank you for making it available! Parking was great to have and we could also walk to shopping, restaurants, yoga and entertainment.
This apartment was just that 'Gorgeous'. It's a great apartment in a great part of Oakland, was very clean and very spacious. The neighborhood has some good restaurants and bars. It's also close to the highway -- what more can you ask for?? Maybe time? I wish I could have stayed longer. Thanks Andrea.
Gorgeous apartment! Clean and comfy. Very large with a beautiful huge back patio with lovely gardens. Very close to strip of restaurants, coffee shops. Bed was very comfy. Bathroom is a little small but we didn't mind. The BART is about a mile and a half away. Being from NYC, we didn't mind the walk, but if you are looking for something close to the BART, you might not like it here.
Pros - Great location for visiting the Bay Area. Groceries and restaurants within walking distance. Highway access very close. Great access to hiking trails (Skyline Blvd.) - We enjoyed great hiking in the Tennessee Valley Area as well as the Lands End in San Francisco. Enjoyed shopping mall in Pleasanton/Dublin Area (30 min. south). 30 - 45 min. from wine country. The king bed was very comfortable. Owner and upstairs resident very easy to talk to and work with.
Cons - No microwave oven (would be very convient for warming and cooking foods), and no T.V. (no a problem for us, but maybe others). Shower works, but tub renovations not complete and jagged edges are a concern. The washing machine did not work while we stayed there, but upstairs resident let us use her washing machine.
I truly enjoyed my stay at this quaint little flat!!! I was comfortable, convenient and the help on site was more then I could of asked for :)
Also, my main goal for the trip was to spend most of my time in San Francisco and the flat was a mere 13 minutes from pier 39!!!! As well as many other hit locations, so all in all it was wonderful. Very pleased, as I am sure you will be during your stay!!!!!

Spacious and private location, Dianne the upstairs neighbor is a charm. Would stay again.
Actually 4.5 stars--enjoyed the experience! It helped serve the purpose of my trip: to get familiar with the environment as if a resident. Super-convenient location, easy access to a variety of places of interest (entertainment and otherwise) by foot, car or public transit, depending where I wanted to go. Andrea, despite being on travel herself, was a very attentive host, prior to and during my stay. Very responsive, cordial, and conscientious, she arranged backup contacts, who were equally helpful, in case she wasn't immediately available, and always kept me informed of such changes. This contributed to a meaningful two weeks in the Bay Area which I was sorry to leave. Thanks again, Andrea.
This lovely, charming flat was spacious, quiet, wonderfully appointed and exceedingly convenient.
The neighborhood offered a host of nearby eateries, lounges, and stores as well as proving safe and pleasant for walking and exploring (especially along Lakeshore Avenue and for the Saturday morning Farmers Market). Access to San Francisco (via I-580) was very easy (freeway onramp located at end of block) and the relatively relaxed quality of this Oakland district was in dramatic contrast to the City's density, pace, congestion, traffic and noise.
The flat's kitchen was very well equiped and the delightful breakfast nook was comfortable and romantic; we enjoyed every relaxed morning in that bright, cheerful space.
My beloved is still waxing eloquently about the large, high, comfortable "bed in the clouds"; the spacious bedroom looks out onto a lush rear yard and garden. The bedroom lighting (with a rheostat dimmer switch) was easily adjustable and allowed for creating a most restful ambiance.
Provision of a dedicated parking spot for the car was truly an enormous blessing, totally eliminating worry about finding parking (which can often be a huge, frustrating challenge).
This lovely accommodation offered wonderful value and a superb haven from which to explore and enjoy the whole Bay Area. Our expectations were greatly exceeded and we would readily stay here again as well as enthusiastically recommend the flat to any and all looking for a lovely, peaceful retreat.
Andrea was an amazing guest. Very quiet and respectable according to my neighbor. He says he didn't even know anyone was there. Very low maintenance guest and an experienced AirBNB host that offered awesome advice. Would love to have her again if ever in KC. A+
Great guests. Communicative, positive, peaceful, clean, and respectful of the space. Welcome back anytime! If you are fortunate enough to receive an Airbnb booking request from Andrea just click "Accept Reservation", you will be glad you did.
It was really fun getting to know Andrea and Scott! They stayed at our house for a number of days and were perfect guests. Friendly, thoughtful, easy, clean, neat, and quiet. We recommend them as guests!
Andrea and Scott were a delight to have stay with us. We hope they will visit again.
Andrea & & Scott are down to earth people as you can get.
Funny and understand the planet we live on as a whole, and not just where they live. God speed to both of you and please stay in touch.
Andrea and Scott were great guests. It was all a little last minute, but I'm pleased they got in touch and I was available to make their stay in the area more comfortable. It was serendipitous and I got to meet a wonderful couple!
Andrea was a wonderful guest. They communicated well, respected our space and left the apartment in perfect order. We would of course welcome them back any time.
Andrea and her partner were delightful guests- perhaps even kindred spirits! We were happy to have them stay an extra day- Andrea was sick, and we took our daughter to the ER for a broken femur. A memorable visit, all around! Prior the trauma and drama for all, we really enjoyed their company, and hope they return on their adventures.
Andrea and Lee were everything you hope for in an AirBnB experience! They were wonderful guests... kind, considerate, and the rare gentle spirits that are a whole lot of fun to be around. Andrea and Lee arrived at our home as strangers and left as friends that we look forward to seeing once again.
Wonderful guest and very friendly folks. They are thoughtful and considerate in every way and very independent travelers. They were here for several days and I hardly knew they were here. They left the room so neat and tidy, cleaned everything up and even removed the garbage! You will be very lucky if they come your way. Please welcome them with open arms.
Andrea's home is a sensual delight...from beautiful furniture, amazing art work, lovely paint colors, fabulously comfortable bed with high count sheets, and gorgeous garden just outside french doors from the bedroom...it has it all! Besides being a beautiful place, the apartment is close to eateries, theater, Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, Lake Merritt, and transportation. You won't regret a stay here! Your hostess is a treasure as well!
