So I have to say, being a bay area native - I'm familiar with the locations in Oakland and this by far was is one of my favorite locations. It's close to all the great places to eat including grocery stores and the lake is one block away for easy running. I would even say that parking isn't that bad around the area. I have to say that the apartment itself is SO CUTE (If a dude is able to say that) but every thing you need as well as a nice livening room to chill in. The best part of the place is the natural light, the nice breeze through the window, and the VIEW. I had a great stay and look forward to staying again.
Stayed at Vania's place for a wedding in Oakland and it was great! Her place is clean and cozy and has a great view of Lake Merritt. In fact, the location alone made this THE perfect place to stay. It was so nice to get out the fron door and be in walking proximity to the park, farmer's market, stores, coffee, tons of food places, etc. Highly recommended!
What a great place to stay. The apartment is cute and the view of the lake is super. The location is great with all the convenience. I will definitely return if I visit Oakland again.
Vania's place was perfect for our weekend in Oakland. It was comfortable, clean, and has a fantastic view of the lake that you can enjoy from bed. The neighborhood was perfect -- a quick walk to the lake, an amazing farmers market, and a street full of shops and restaurants. Working out the coming and going arrangements was a cinch too. I would highly recommend Vania's apartment for one or a couple looking for a quite place to stay in Oakland with all the comforts of home.
Vania was easy to coordinate with. Her place is perfect for 1-2 people in an amazing neighborhood with lots of great options for eating out.
Vania was a great host. Her place is adorable, cozy and spotless. I was in town visiting my sister up the street and new the area really well so she let us be and allowed us to enjoy our Lake Merrit getaway. It was all very relaxed and took the stress out of a hectic holiday. :)
Great place, perfect location, cute apartment. Would love to stay here again.
Our stay at the Urban Lakeview Getaway was great! We stayed for three nights and really were able to relax. The neighborhood and building was quiet which we were really looking forward to. V's place is close to a lot. The accommodations were quite comfortable! Would definitely stay here again if in the bayarea. V was so easy to work with and made things simple from check in to check out.
V's place was great. Nice location in a lovely residental area. Bus stop very close by which goes to train station and into the city you go!
The apartment itself was lovely. Clean and nicely decorated. Just beware that it is on the 6th floor of the building so if you have a heavy suitcase (like I did!) you might have some trouble! Other than that, I enjoyed my time there. Wish I could have stayed longer! :)
We had a great stay in this cute apartment. Internet wasn't working that weekend, but it's close to a Starbucks with free WiFi. Also close to shops and yoga studios on Lakeshore, and bay bridge to san francisco. Very quiet with great view of the lake. Would definitely stay here again.
Really enjoyed our second visit from Vania. She's an excellent guest and we were lucky to have her stay with us!
Quiet. Respectful. Easy to communicate with.
A great guest! She's super nice and very personable. Welcome back anytime!
