Andrei was very helpful allowing us to check-in early for our February visit. The home is well-represented in the pictures on the website. It was clean, comfortable and extremely convenient! We would like to stay again on our next visit to Oakland!
Andrei was waiting for us - got our car parked and showed us the apartment. It was big and comfortable. A perfect place to relax after work with a short walk home along the lake. Andrei's recommendation for dinner at the cafe on the corner was spot on. We loved the place so much we are going back next week. Thanks Andrei!
What a great place in a fantastic location! Directly on the lake, plenty of restaurants in the immediate vicinity. Supermarket within walking distance.
Very clean with everything as promised. I felt like welcome from the first moment on. Everything was explained in detail and worked just fine.
Garage place a must, since public parking on the street is scarce.
We are certain to book with Andrei again on our next visit.
I've had several airbnb experiences. 2 bedroom 2 bath Lake Merritt apartment is up there with the best of them. We stayed 3 nights. Andrei communicated well, was friendly and concise, showed us around, gave us keys, and left us to enjoy. Posted photos are excellent (actual is even tidier). Plenty of linens, beds are extremely comfortable, bathrooms spacious. Layout very private for 4. Kitchen is equipped with every tool, Whole Foods/Starbucks 4 blocks (.28 mi) away. Street parking is metered, so garage parking is a luxurious feature. The neighborhood is pleasant, great for walking, restaurants and, of course, the lake.
The place was exactly as described and conveniently located. Andrei and Masha were extremely easy to work with and promptly responded to all our inquiries. Since the apartment wasn't booked right up until our arrival, Andrei was kind enough to let us "check in" early. The apartment itself is spacious. The bedrooms were good sized and the bed I slept on was very comfortable. The garage space is a fantastic feature. The walk to the BART station is more like 15 minutes and closer to 20 if you don't hit the lights right and there's traffic, but this wasn't a problem at all for us.
My husband and I stayed here with our daughter and my mother. The apartment exceeded our expectations. It was very clean. I has been concerned about another reviewer's comment about a smell of cigarette smoke. There was no smell of smoke at all. We loved the location and enjoyed going to Fairyland across the street. The Mediterranean restaurant at the end of the block was excellent.
Andrei and Masha were great hosts. Quick to respond and very accommodating. The apartment is in a fantastic and safe location. Quick 15 minute walk to BART, grocery just around the corner and a stones throw away from Lake Merritt.
The apartment was clean and comfortable. Everything I needed for a week away.
What a great place, warm, and very comfortable, a very beautiful space. We loved the area eazy to get around and great places to eat. Already think ing of coming back next year. We felt very welcomed.
Andrei was very communicative before our check in to the apartment. The place is very spacious and homely and even came with the use of Netflix (our fav). The location is right beside Lake Merritt and a 10 min walk to the BART station which was very convenient for us as it takes you straight into downtown San Francisco in 20 mins. Five of us really enjoyed our stay at Andrei's place and would definitely recommend it to anyone after a relaxed stay when visiting San Francisco or Oakland.
The reservation was canceled 36 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
It was great having the girls here, although I had hurt my back and didn't spent much time with them. I would to have them back anytime.
Great communication. They left the cabin very clean.
Andrei and Masha took great care of the condo, and cleaned up very well after themselves. I was really impressed by the consideration they showed (they even messaged me to ask permission before they smoked outside the unit, which I don't think many people would do). I'd highly recommend them to future hosts.
Masha and her husband Andrei are really nice people. They stayed in my apartment for 6 nights and they left my apartment in a proper and clean way. They are really good guests!
Masha and Andrei are a very nice couple, we enjoyed very must having them as our guests!
Masha and her husband are wonderful guests. I'm sad that they could only stay for two nights. Maybe next time... They left the house in impeccable conditions!
I didn't have the chance to meet Masha in flesh but everything went perfectly well while she was in my place and she left the apartment in a perfect condition. I would be more than happy to welcome her again whenever she wants!
