Single mom, with two sons (ages 15 and 19 year old away at college). Love meeting new people and providing my place as a comfy, quiet and private environment for your stop over.

Lexine was a wonderful host. She was always available and attentive when we needed her, but also gave us the space to really enjoy the beautiful and thoughtful garden room she set up. You have everything you need here: a clean room in the midst of a vibrant garden, full amenities, and the convenience of a great location. Speaking of the location, you couldn't ask for a better one. The area accommodates all sorts of personality types, providing quiet, tree-lined streets as well as a bustling and lively marketplace two blocks away. Definitely stay with Lexine!
The room was pleasant and clean, great neighborhood. It was a good value and nice to be able to find it for a last minute reservation. The host was available on e-mail.
Hi Susan, again sorry about the TV. As for heating, the last guest complained about needing a fan for the heat, so I had taken out the heater. Guess I'll leave them both in the room in the future.
This listing was very well represented. I feel that the pictures evoked the feeling the garden cottage gave me. This is a remarkably private getaway within and nearby a bustling, pleasant neighborhood.
There were fresh flowers and chocolate in the room, as well as information about local attractions. The Internet signal was strong and reliable. The host was available and present, but not hovering.
This little garden house was just perfect for us. Private enough to feel like you had your own space. Clean, well appointed and well taken care of. My in-laws stayed here while visiting us and that was a great solution to our tight quarters at home. Thank you, Lexine!
Very wonderful experience at the Garden Cottage. Lexine, my host, is certainly one of the most gracious and attentive to the needs of her guests. I hope to visit this little slice of paradise nestled in this charming garden setting again on future travels. So many attributes of convenience, amenities & landscape included with this experience. Thank you.. Lexine!
The host was most gracious and the desciption was right on. Very pleasant stay. Clean , and quiet.I highly recommend this place to future travelers .
Lexine was an absolutely fantastic host with a beautiful house. This location could not be more ideal, and the privacy of the separate garden room was really great. We are so grateful to have stayed there and hope very much to come back!
Host was very welcoming. Description was as shown and the setting even more pleasant.
Lexine's studio suited our needs. We loved her place & the neighborhood. The studio itself was comfortable, airy & it came with a kitty (!). And, the yard was beautiful. Although, we were busy & didn't get to spend much time there we found the overall effect of her place very inviting.
Lexine was cool, easy to chat with & touched base with us to see if we needed anything.
We would totally stay there again.
This is an oasis in the middle of North Oakland just off College Avenue. Lexine finds that delicate balance between being a good host and not hovering. The room is full of light and air. It is a short walk to the BART (with no transfers from the airport). I will ask to stay here again when I return to the Bay area. A+
Thank you for the nice review Britt. Glad that you enjoyed your stay. Come back.
