What a great place! Very relaxing, right near the lake and plenty of great restaurants. Ginny was an excellent host and suggested many places to see, including the farmer's market two blocks away. My girlfriend and I had a great time.
Wonderful apartment. You get the feel of healing and peace from her space. Loved it. Ginny was very responsive. The setting is lovely near the lake. I brought a portable wi-fi hot spot and put it in the window so I had my own wi-fi. Very nice atmosphere.
Ginny has one of the most fabulous places I've stayed at yet.
The location is amazing - right on Lake Merritt. Beautiful white building, and unbelievable interior design. Every inch of the condo has been thought through. Ginny even left wine and chocolate.
If you are looking for a beautiful, meditative, elegant experience, you should definitely check this place out.
The apartment is spacious, clean, and comfortable with tons of light. In addition, it's in an absolutely great location; the shops and restaurants of Grand Lake are an easy 10 minute walk away, the bus to downtown (and the BART) stops literally in front of the building, and there's a great little coffee shop -Haddon Hill Cafe- right behind the place. Oh, and there's the lake and surrounding park!
The only downside to the apartment is it's lack of wi-fi, but there are two coffee shops with free wireless within 2 blocks. Using those spots in combination with judicious use of my wireless hot spot meant that this was really a non-issue during my stay, but still something worth taking into consideration.
As for Ginny, she does airbnb right with her friendliness and responsiveness. Her restaurant and things-to-do recommendations were spot on, and she obviously cared that we had a great time while staying at her place.
I will be returning to Oakland in the near future, and Ginny's apartment is at the top of my list for places to stay.
Ginny's place is beautiful and peaceful and in a great location.
Ginny's apartment worked perfectly for our short stay in Oakland - great location and easy to get to.
This place is beautiful! The building is very old and at first I was a bit anxious because the rug going through the building is a bit funky. It reminds me of an old European hotel and when you look through that lens, it is fitting and not off-putting. The lobby was beautiful, the elevator is cool, and the apartment itself is clean, visually uncluttered (a huge relief from my own place), sunny, and very peaceful. There is a beautiful 20 minute walk along the lake to various different eateries and stores on Grand and Lakeshore, and a terrific vintage movie theater. Not to get too woo-woo, but it's clear that Ginny is healer and being there inspired me to want to live more simply. Thank you, Ginny!
A lovely apartment in a great location in a well-kept and safe building.
Ginny's apartment building is in a great location right on Lake Merritt, a terrific place for a Sunday morning stroll like we did the morning we were there. The building itself has historic charm with high ceilings and lots of original embellishments. The apartment is large and comfortable. It's sparsely furnished, but it provided all we needed for our stay. All in all, it was a terrific stay in a spacious place that would cost nearly triple in a hotel.
Ginny was absolutely delightful, warm, friendly and gracious. Would love to have her back!
Great guests! We enjoyed their stay with us.
