Very nice accommodations, we enjoyed our stay.
Ericka's cottage is absolutely lovely! It is beautifully designed and well-equipped. I enjoyed the coziness of the loft bed, and spread my yoga mat out right on the floor downstairs for a truly delicious week.
Very nice, Friends, actually outstanding comfortable and nice
My guest ended up having to extend his reservation for work and Ericka was happy to help us out. I very much appreciate the effort she put in for us!
Booking with Ericka was a breeze! Her and her husband were incredibly accommodating and helpful. My guest seemed very happy with his stay, no complaints! I would definitely book with them again if I ever need to make another reservation in Oakland.
If you're in the East Bay, I can think of no finer place to stay. The cottage is well appointed, beautifully designed and very comfortable. Ericka made sure I had everything I needed and was a considerate host. Highly recommended.
I stayed at Ericka's place for 4 nights. It was lovely, quiet and very private. In fact, it was so private that I didn't have the pleasure of meeting Ericka during my visit. I arrived late the first evening and returned every night after 9. Too bad, I was so looking forward to saying hello.
The cottage is very well appointed and had absolutely everything I could need. The bathroom and shower looked newly remodeled and were incredible. The furnishings are comfortable, stylish and homey. I was able to relax after a long day of work and enjoy some peace and quiet.
If you have never had the privilege of visiting Rockridge (between Berkeley and Oakland near the hills) you will love this location. There are literally dozens of incredible restaurants within a 5-10 minute walk. There is also a market a stone's throw away.
I cannot say enough about how lovely my experience was. I highly recommend to all.
This cottage is a total dream. Bright, clean, beautiful, thoughtfully-appointed. Lovely, attentive hosts, too. Go, go, go!
This is a great place ! Hosts were accommodating and the unit feels very private. The loft sleeping feels like you are camping. Great little modernist hideaway.
I'm a business traveler, but stayed here because all hotels were booked that week. I picked it for the location: Rockridge is dense with charming, independent shops, and when you must leave the neighborhood BART is a 3 minute walk. The hosts, Eric and Ericka, were completely respectful of my privacy -- the only time I was even aware of their presence was when I needed a little help with the wifi, in which case they were very responsive via text and quickly solved the problem. The cottage itself is small (about the size of a hotel room) but airy and bright.
The only, minor awkwardness is the lack of a real bed. Option one is the sofa/daybed, which is basically a frameless, king-size, thick, foam mattress folded in half. I made it up and slept on it without unfolding so as to avoid moving furniture and because I didn't need more space for just me. Option two is the sleep loft which is just big enough for a (full-size?) futon mattress on the floor. It seemed comfortable when I tried it, but requires a careful, two-handed climb up a tall, steel ladder.
I would stay again, especially if I had more time to enjoy the neighborhood!
I didn't meet Ericka I was too busy but she was really nice to deal with and left the place immaculate. I recommend having her as your guest.
Great Great person to dill with.Easy going and vert kind.
That was the first time we hosted a fellow airbnb host.
Not only does Ericka have amazing style and has created a beautiful and tranquil home, but she is a wonderful person who cares for and engages with her friends, family and community in a loving and dynamic way. She is incredibly responsible and responsive. Ericka is a do-er.
Ericka's strong aesthetic and innate hospitality will be sure to make guests feel well cared for. She's a warm, professional, and will be a pleasure to deal with!
