I am a graduate student based in Oakland, California.
The pictures don't lie: this is a beautiful apartment. It was like staying at a friend's house, from the moment we arrived (to a chocolate bar, a bottle of wine, and a sweet note introducing the neighborhood specialties). The office space was sunny and bright -- very easy to get work done when you can rest your eyes on the lovely garden outside. Great location -- quiet street walking distance from pretty much everything.
Everything about this stay was lovely--the location, the space itself, the host. Magali was extremely accommodating and very responsive to all my questions and requests ahead of time and while I was there. She cleared out a lot of her personal belongings so that I had whole closets and bookshelves and kitchen cabinets and bathroom drawers to myself. That's a blessing when you stay somewhere for a month, like I did. The apartment was spacious and open and spotlessly clean. The amenities, while not "plush," were certainly above average for the price. The backyard was wonderful. The neighbors upstairs were never any trouble, and even helpful at times. I would definitely stay here again.
Magali was very nice, neat guess , it good to have her here , hope to see them again soon.
I really enjoyed hosting Magali and friends. They were wonderful guests-quiet, responsible and considerate. They left the cottage very clean and tidy as well. We would love to have them stay with us again.
Magali was a wonderful guest. Interesting, considerate and tidy. I hope she will stay with us again. Polly at Riverbend Bed and Breakfast
