Valerie has a truly beautiful space that was absolutely perfect for the small dinner gathering we had there. I didn't get to ask Valerie what she does, but the loft looks like it belongs to an artist, very tastefully and creatively decorated. The kitchen was small, but had everything we needed (the oven above the fridge worked like a charm!) The patio outside had lovely spring flowers.
Valerie's place was great, an eclectic mix of furnishings, very spacious and ambient, handy to downtown, just around the corner from Flora's (a great restaurant) and right in the middle of a very happening little area.
Awesome Host, Awesome stay
Valerie was super welcoming and the space was just gorgeous. The location was perfect for my purposes and was super easy to get to. I had a great time and would recommend this spot to anyone looking for a good downtown Oakland stay.
We arrived in the Bay area in hopes of reconnecting with several friends we had not seen in a while and chose Valerie's place because it looked like the perfect, funky-cool setting for a small gathering of folks and we were not disappointed! Valerie's place is filled with great art, retro-cool furnishings, and all the comforts of home.
Valerie herself was fabulous and helpful, very attentive, and was happy to offer suggestions for enjoying our stay to its fullest. I loved her place, it was so close to the BART, and we had no trouble getting to and from the San Francisco. I would stay there again in heartbeat!
Valerie's place is ideal for anyone hoping to savor the best of the Bay Area. Easy access to BART, and the hippest new area of Oakland is right around the corner. Despite the very urban location, her lofty apartment is peaceful and protected from the neighborhood buzz. We really enjoyed the aesthetic of the apartment -- very spacious and comfortable with a warm feel about it. And the basics are all there and work great: comfortable bed, hot water, great shower, kitchen access, fresh laundered towels and sheets, even treats and news about goings on about town. Valerie was very easy to work with -- a respectful, generous, reliable airb&b host!
Valerie came with some best girlfriends to New Orleans. From the start, she communicated clearly with me, kept me abreast of the number of guests, and always seemed to be so cheerful and easy-going. Unfortunately, I couldn't meet her and feel as though I missed out on meeting someone unique, kind, and quite special.
