My husband and I had to book a last minute airbnb, due to a plumbing catastrophe in our own Oakland apartment. We chose Shar's place because we know the area, which is full of amenities including excellent restaurants, cafes, bookstores, clothing boutiques, and markets. Even better, it is about a block 1/2 away from Bart and three blocks away from Trader Joes -- ideal for our commute and keeping expenses low.
Shar was incredibly kind an flexible. The apartment was clean, comfortable and reasonably priced. If your visiting Oakland and want a cozy and commutable crash-pad, this is an excellent choice.
Shar and Mike's place was awesome. Great location and Shar was so nice. They were in constant communication and I really loved my stay. Would recommend to anyone.

nicest stay ever！bittersweet was awesome！
I had the best time staying at Sharmila's place. The flat is spacious, clean and tidy. Kitchen is fully equipped with everything you'll need. The best part is that it gets an abundance of light throughout the day. Extremely convenient location -centrally located to shopping and public transportation. No car necessary. Very safe neighborhood at all times of the day and night. Sharmila was the perfect host. She was responsive and attentive to any concerns or questions I had and thoroughly knowledgable about the Bay Area. Sharmila is someone I am now proud to call a friend. I would highly recommend a stay here and won't hestitate to book again!
Great location! Very close to great restaurants and Trader Joe's. Shar was easy to work with and gave some great recommendations.

Sharmila's appartment is beautiful and nicely located right on College avenue in Rockridge. Sharmila is a wonderful host, she gracefully helped me with a last-minute change in my reservation schedule. I would definitely recommend her to anyone!
Shar is so fantastic and so is her apartment! It really IS an oasis. I rented this space for my mom who was visiting town for a few days ... and she just GUSHED about how comfortable it is and how well she slept. I have to agree. I'm actually writing this review from inside the apartment and it's just completely lovely. There are tall windows overlooking the Oakland Hills and very comfortable couches and lovely carpeting. There is wi-fi and a big kitchen and fresh fruit. The apartment is above College Ave. in Rockridge — easily one of the most convenient, walkable, lively neighborhoods in the Bay Area — but it also feels removed, calm, a respite from the action below. We will definitely be renting this place again, guaranteed. And I'm so glad we got to know Shar. She is incredibly knowledgable about the area and super gracious and very funny. Also, she was flexible about check-in/check-out times, which was really helpful. Definitely a five-star experience. My mom agrees.
It's a really nice place to stay. The furnishings are comfortable and homey feeling. The building seems secure. The area has vibrant city life just outside the door. Food choices are varied and plentiful, and prices are reasonable, including the cost for Shar's place. Trader Joe's is very close. Great coffee is so close that I'm spoiled now.
BART is very close and is part of the value for this beautiful 1 bedroom apartment. BART was on strike for part of the time we were there, but seemed like a minor inconvenience when considered with the other charming/useful features of staying there.
We thought we had a utility issue while we were there and Shar responded to our plea for help/advice quickly and well. Turned out the problem was us and not the apartment. She was pretty understanding.
All that, and it's walking distance to our new Grandson.
I look forward to staying there again.
Shar and her family were pleasant guests. They left the house in fine condition and would be welcome back again.
Sharmila and her family were perfect guests, very clean, and very flexible, they helped me out with accepting an alternate accommodation on their last day, after I made the mistake of double-booking the property! Very serious and gracious people, I would host them again in a heartbeat!
Shar was the perfect guest and a great addition to the Air Bnb community. She is welcome back anytime :]
