I love Oakland and love meeting people from around the country and the world. Come visit our town and neighborhood and see all the wonderful things about the Bay area. You may never want to leave!
We had an enjoyable one month stay in Pamela's one bedroom apartment. The neighborhood was indeed lovely and very convenient. The apartment was spacious with a recently remodeled bathroom. Parking was never a problem. Pamela was very responsive both during the booking process and with the minor issues that arose. She is a great host.
This is the second time my girlfriend and I stayed here, this time it was much longer as we enjoyed it so much the first! Beautiful neighbourhood, charming apartment and a efficient/professional, yet warm and helpful owner/host. I recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a peaceful stay that is close to everything you need.
Great location. Large comfortable cute clean apartment. Pamela was responsive and a great host and did little touches to make us feel at home. She left some food in the fridge, good coffee, milk, a fresh baguette, butter - little things you don't want to buy when you're only staying a couple days. Comfortable bed with lots of cozy covers and pillows. There a little desk in the living room so you can set up your laptop or IPad to charge. There's a washer and dryer in the apt which was wonderful since we were on the 4th day of a road trip and needed to do just a small load of wash. There was easy parking right out front. It's a beautiful neighborhood although we didn't walk around much since we were visiting our nephew and were out most of the time. I would definitely recommend the apartment to friends.
My husband and I stayed at Pamela's cozy place for 5 nights. It was well equipped and had a comfortable bed. Lovely neighborhood with convenient shops and restaurants down the street. Pamela is a good host and easy to communicate with. We will stay again.
Pamela was a great host! The apartment is located in such a beautiful place in Oakland. It's safe and quiet. It's walkable to Lakeshore and Grand Avenue. Pamela was super prompt with communications and at her house with retrieving and depositing the keys. The apartment itself is well equipped with resources for out-of-towners (I especially loved the full cable package) and feels like staying in a friend or relative's comfy place. Though, the stand up shower was a bit small, I'd recommend this place for others.
Nice apartment in beautiful quiet area, walking distance to Lakeshore shops. My parents stayed there for two weeks and were delighted.
What a great introduction to Airbnb! Pamela was a warm and gracious hostess, and made us feel right at home in the apartment. She had everything ready for arrival, including a nice basket of fruit and a binder of interesting "to-dos" around Oakland. And the Lakeshore neighborhood should not be missed: having never been to Oakland, we were pleasantly surprised by the beautiful, Mediterranean-inspired enclave at the base of the Oakland Hills. We would definitely recommend Pamela's place to others.
We had a great stay at Pamela's in-law apartment. Pamela is really nice and very helpful. The apartment is spacious and in a great location.
Pamela was very responsive and easy to work with. The apartment was clean and pleasant and perfect for our needs. I would rent this again for visiting family.
Great experince, from the quick response to my mail about availability, to staying in the lovely apartment. The area was quiet and suburban, yet still close enough to walk to local amenities for shops/groceries. The house itself was very cosy, and had everything we needed, and if we didn't Pamela made sure we could contact her if needs be! Comfortable bed & sofa, well stocked kitchen and a surprisingly large amount of storage space and cupboard.
Me and my girlfriend had a wonderful time and next time we come back to Oakland, we'll be giving Pamela a mail!
Pamela and Susan were great guests!. We shared some interesting conversations and exchanged some world views. Pamela was kind enough to invite us to stay with her, should we ever wander to Oakland. We would welcome them back anytime.
