Howard was very accommodating to my last minute plans and was easy to communicate with. I even wanted to stay an extra night because I felt so comfortable and relaxed at this bed and breakfast that I didn't want to leave. I was surprised to come home the first day to find the place was cleaned and my bed was made, it was SUCH a nice touch. I would recommend this place to anyone and will be back!
Thanks, Liz. Hope to be able to host you again.
The accommodation was more beautiful and comfortable than we expected. We were only there for a couple of nights and wished we'd been able to stay longer. It was really home from home - everything we needed was there. Howard, most generously, had left cinnamon bread, tea, coffee, fruit, milk and yoghurts for us. This was most welcome as we were exhausted after a long trans-Atlantic flight and didn't relish the thought of having to find a foodstore late in the evening.
Most thoughtfully, the house was full of books and board games which again, added to the welcome.
We stayed at Hills B&B as we were moving house and between houses. It really felt like a home away from home. Howard was extremely welcoming and was available to answer questions if we needed him, or to just leave us to it. We have a toddler so we appreciated the separate living room - it meant we could put the baby to sleep and still watch TV / have a conversation. The kitchen is stocked with everything and the whole place is very cozy. Access to the back yard was a bonus and it's a nice combination of quiet tranquility and great location to the freeways. Definitely recommended.
This is a lovely well equipped apartment in a quiet neighborhood. Howard was there to meet with us and was available to help us with anything we needed. He provided breakfast options such as a loaf of raisin cinnamon bread, oatmeal, homemade granola and all the fixings.
A very nice place to rest and relax in the Oakland hills! (Just be aware that there are a few steep steps to get to the apartment so not the easiest for some older guests)
Thanks for the note regarding the steps. I've included that information on the details of the property.
Our family enjoyed a wonderful, relaxing time at The Hills Bed and Breakfast. Howard was very flexible and a warm host, as we had an extra person stay and arrived late at night. The apartment was private, cozy and spacious. The sleeping quarters were separate so my wife and I had our space separate from our children. Everything was clean and well stocked with foods for breakfast, toiletries and towels, games and activities, maps and local information. The yard was beautiful and filled with trees and birds and very peaceful.
First time using airbnb. I really enjoyed hills B and B as did wife and 2 kids. It was bigger and more comfortable than I expected. Nice loaf of cinnamon bread. Stocked with games books, local guides. patio overlooking garden & view of mt. Tam and very quite location. I'll probably here again when visiting east bay. No more Hyatt house for me.
Thanks for your review and suggestion about the stairs.
The Hills Bed and Breakfast is a homey apartment in quiet and serene surroundings, but also provides easy access to all Bay Area attractions. It has a small deck overlooking a lovely terraced garden as well as basic cooking necessities. There is a huge selection of board games and books, which made me want to stay longer! Howard was welcoming and provided very nice breakfast items. Highly recommended!
Thanks, Julie. Hope you had a good trip back to Vienna. Just made my plans for my trip to Europe and I hope to see you on my visit to Vienna.
Beautiful home in a beautiful location, spacious and just as described. We enjoyed some delicious chocolate biscotti, cinnamon bread and tea that were left by the host for us. The view of the gardens and the neighborhoods beyond was beautiful. Would highly recommend staying here! Only caveat was a bit of upstairs noise in the morning, due to the unit being on the bottom floor. Howard was the perfect host, easy to get a hold of, flexible on the check in time and was ok with us staying only one night. Highly recommend.
We enjoyed our stay at The Hills B and B. the apartment is very spacious, the bed very comfortable and the food Howard left for us in the refrigerator was very good as well. We would definitely stay here again.
What a find! This was the perfect location for visiting nearby family and friends. We loved the view of Mt. Tamalpais, the granola and coffee, and the that it was a clean, spacious, comfortable place to stay. We also appreciated our host, Howard, because he communicated with us so well via e-mail and phone and was accommodating when it came to getting our elderly parents down the stairs for a visit. He also has a friendly dog! I look forward to staying there again.
Howard was polite, communicative, and left the apartment in perfect condition. Recommended.
Howard was a wonderful guest. Easy to communicate, on time, and clean and organized. He took care of the apartment and left it in great shape. Thanks!
