This private suite is a slice of heaven in a woodland setting! It has a separate entry, dedicated parking and access via a dedicated stair. Due to the coronavirus we are taking extra care to disinfect frequently touched surfaces between reservations. The suite features a lovely patio, luxurious large bath with a walk-in shower for two, heated floors and large jacuzzi tub! The bedroom features elegant furniture and a queen sized bed, USB ports, a desk, large screen TV and strong WIFI signal.
This private suite is located on the lower level of our home, accessed from the south side of the house down an exterior set of stairs. There are no nearby neighbors on this side of the house and it is very quiet - all you see is forest and the view to west. The bathroom features a large walk-in shower for two, heated floors and a fabulous two person jetted tub. Neck pillows at each end of tub are provided for enhanced relaxation! Coffee, Tea, and small refrigerator are provided. Also plates and silverware for two, plus wine opener. Transportation and parking are very convenient. There is ample on-street free parking on this quiet street with only one immediate neighbor. Freeway access is very quick and easy via highway Highway 13 and I-580. San Francisco is about 20 minutes away (if no traffic) or a convenient commute via BART from nearby Rockridge Station. We are very near the University of California at Berkeley campus (17 to 12 min.), and major highways 80, 580, 24 and 880, which can whisk you to the vibrant galleries of Sausalito (40 minutes), San Jose (50 minutes), or Santa Cruz (90 minutes). If you are up for a day-long outing, don't miss the grand Muir Woods, wine tours in Napa, or mud baths in Calistoga. Quick access to sunshine on foggy days via the Caldecott Tunnel to points east - Orinda, Lafayette, Walnut Creek, and Lake Tahoe (~3 1/2 hours.)
Our home is located on a ridge above downtown Oakland. The views are beautiful, the neighborhood is quiet and upscale. Public transportation is not convenient. Guests either drive or Uber/Lyft. Parking on the street directly in front of our home is always available because our neighbors are distant.

    Private guesthouse located in the Oakland Hills with stunning views of the bay. We recognize the importance of privacy, this guesthouse will allow you to have everything you need all while never having to be bothered. The sunset views can be taken in from your bed or the deck. There is a bus stop about 150 yards away if you need, the airport is about a 7 minute ride away, rail (BART) is about 5 minutes and the house is near a freeway for quick access to everywhere in the Bay Area.
    This cozy guesthouse is roughly 250 square feet and features a panoramic view of the entire bay area. The garden, with its fenced off private area, is meant to give the feeling of an escape, privacy is important for us. You can see San Francisco in the distance and watch the sun set from your bed and the Oakland Coliseum complex is in the same view so if you want to go watch a Warriors/Raiders/A's game its a straight shot. The Deck is roughly 900 square feet and features infinite views of the bay area.
    It's a suburban area in the Oakland Hills. It's very close to everything, 5 minute ride to the airport/BART (rail), walking distance to a bus stop, 15 minute drive to Downtown San Francisco, 10 Minutes to Downtown Oakland. You will need a ride to get around unless you intend to take a bus.
  • As advertised! Charming, quaint and never enough praise for that view. 5/5 would highly recommend making this your next stay.

    Welcome to the San Francisco Bay Area! I live in the Oakland/Emeryville Border. I'm hosting a large private room-- that sleeps up to four-- with a private bathroom on the first floor of my three-story condo. Hop on an $15 Uber/Lyft to SF, or take a day trip to Napa or Sonoma's wine country, or explore the soul & culture of the East Bay. Or Netflicks & chill with an Apple TV equipped with Hulu, Amazon Prime, HBO GO and WIFI. Public transportation, BART & Amtrak are easily accessible.
    The first floor is really private. I live on floors 2-3, so I’ll be pretty much out of your way. I’ll greet my guests with fresh fruit, chocolates and other snacks to enjoy— just outside the doors of the Master Suite.
  • The host was extremely nice. We got an upgrade due to some upgrades being done to the place. The upgrade was beautiful. Carlos was extremely generous and ver welcoming.

    Josue2020-04-27T00:00:00Z
  • Carlos’s condo is great, with complementary assets adjacent to it. Carlos as a host, is unparalleled. Very hospitable, welcoming, and genuine! The first-floor level provided complimentary cereal, coffee pots and refreshments. The technology provided made our stay over the top, considering COVID-19. Netflix, and Apple TV really made our binging feel right at home. My only slight feedback would be, as a visitor from San Mateo, and originally from Tracy, would be the economical impacts in the city of Oakland e.g. tents/homelessness being developed right across the street from this location. Nevertheless, with the garage parking included in the stay, our vehicle(s) felt safe. The downstairs level also had a private restroom, and step in shower, within a closed off space, next to the living/sleeping area. I would definitely consider staying here again. Thank you Carlos for an amazing stay!

    David2020-04-22T00:00:00Z
  • Carlos was amazing ! a great host , great listing hospitality all in one . would definitely book again

    Kimberly2020-04-19T00:00:00Z
  • Clean and extremely convenient. Carlo’s place was very nice and he was quick to respond whenever I had a question. If you’re visiting UCSF Medical I would definitely recommend this place. It was literally 15 minutes away going over the Oakland Bay Bridge! Also one of the main reasons we booked here was because there’s a garage for parking. What a plus when staying in the city. We didn’t have to worry about our car or go on a hunt for parking space. We enjoyed our stay and can’t wait to book again.

    Amanda2020-04-14T00:00:00Z
  • Nice clean space, great amenities, and Carlos is really nice. Great stay.

    Andry2020-03-25T00:00:00Z
  • I wasn’t able to use my reservation due to COVID-19. Carlos was very quick with responses and answers to my questions. This is my first time using Arirbnb, and Carlos was a great first impression. Thank you.

    You’ll love my place because of the good location, convenience to public transport, the friendly neighborhood, the ambiance.. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families (with kids). Although there is just one bedroom, the couch folds down for extra sleeping space. Please be aware that the property is in a hilly area and that there are stairs to navigate which can be challenging if you have large luggage or mobility issues.
    It's a quiet, private spot in a busy city. Feel free to enjoy the deck or yard and the many restaurants and local spots.
    Although quiet and out of the way, the cottage is located within walking distance of a grocery, movie theatre, Lake Merritt, many delightful restaurants and shopping.
  • Our second stay in this great cottage. Lovely location. Great hosts. We definitely have Deanna’s as our number one place to stay when we come to the Bay area.

    Maureen2020-05-05T00:00:00Z
  • The perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the city, whether to come home to at the end of a day of sightseeing or to spend the whole day just relaxing on the deck. A lovely view over Deanna’s rooftop to the interesting architecture on the hills across and to the stars at night. We stayed five nights during the shelter in place and were quite content cooking our own meals and spending a lot of time at the sweet guest house. I recommend the hilly neighborhood walks admiring front yard gardens. Friendly hosts. We appreciated their flexibility in dealing with us. Definitely plan to stay there again.

    Maureen2020-03-25T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, beautiful, comfortable and clean place and friendly host. Highly recommended!

    Eamon2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Great place. We love it.

    Marcilla2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Deanna's cottage was cozy, clean, and private. It was not difficult to get parking and the cottage had so many amenities. Overall I had a very enjoyable stay.

    Henry2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • I don’t even know where to begin, Deanna’s cottage was such a pleasurable experience for the two nights we stayed. Checking in was so easy. The moment we checked in Deanna was so warm and kind welcoming my husband, sister in law and I with her delicious baked treats and fruits. Her cottage was very cozy and clean. She also provided many amenities that you’ll need along with orange juice and fresh milk stocked in the fridge. Instructions in her cottage was very easy to follow. The neighborhood felt very safe. Communication was quick, Deanna responded within minutes with whatever questions we had. Definitely would come back to her cottage and stay longer.

    Nancy2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Deanna's cottage was absolutely wonderful! It was a great stay and she was an awesome host. Check-in was very easy and smooth and upon arrival there was fruit and freshly baked bread waiting for us! Everything in the cottage was very clean and there is a great kitchen with everything you'd need to cook, if you wanted to. I would most definitely stay here again.

    Erykah2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Deanna was extremely hospitable and kind during our one night stay there and we absolutely loved her garden cottage! Everything was perfect - the entire space was very clean and filled with all kinds of amenities that you might need. My husband and i look forward to coming back and we highly recommend you to stay here if you're in the area. Once again thank you Deanna for accommodating to us when we couldn't find a parking space nearby. You have a lovely house and we love everything about it :)

    Redwood Sanctuary is located in the idyllic Oakland Hills with beautiful vistas, hikes, and parks within a short drive. The home is situated on half an acre of land in the middle of redwood, eucalyptus, and oak trees secluded away from other homes. Montclair village is an 8 minute drive, providing lots of great food and shops. Minutes from Highway 13 and 580. It is a 1 bedroom studio with a queen bed and a pull out sofa bed. It can comfortably accommodate up to 3. We'd love to host your stay!
    The home is set back a ways from the street down a long driveway on half an acre, giving the house plenty of privacy away from any nearby homes. The in-law unit is located above the detached garage, with a flight of 14 stairs to access the entrance. Off street parking in the driveway is provided. TV and high speed fiber internet. We live in the home adjacent to the detached in-law suite and have 2 small children, so noise levels in the evenings should be kept to a reasonable level.
    Minutes away from Montclair Village and Glenview, both which offer great restaurants and coffee shops. Joaquin Miller Park, located 9 minutes from the home is a beautiful redwood park filled with hiking trails. Downtown Oakland and Lake Merritt are a short 15 minute Lyft ride away.
  • Beautiful place! Really peaceful location in nature - I saw a flock of wild turkeys in the driveway during my stay. Apartment was clean and modern, and the hosts made me feel at home.

    Brianna2020-05-08T00:00:00Z
  • This place is absolutely beautiful. I was there for work, so spent most of my time sleeping (the bed is sooo comfortable, and the pillows). The window in this studio is beautiful, definitely spent some time relaxing with that calm view! The location is perfect to just about any party of the Bay!

    Sanja2020-05-04T00:00:00Z
  • Place was immaculate and tasty fully decorated. We are locals and this space was perfect just to get away from home.

  • Really amazing

    Carlos2020-04-19T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing host. Had a too Issue abs was accommodated no problem . Would definitely stay again . Everything was lovely

    Leeena2020-03-27T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you Gene for the nice stay in your clean and stylish airbnb. We liked it very much!

    Luise2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay, clean and looks great inside. Also very comfortable with a nice TV, work desk, and really nice bed. Just not the best area to be in

    Adan2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Super clean, comfy, and convenient place. 10 minute walk from the train station which gets you into San Francisco in minutes for super cheap (way less than an Uber). Has fridge and microwave for heating up leftovers or meals. Great desk area with high speed internet as well as ALL the streaming services on a 4K TV. Bed was super comfortable and the place was sparkling clean when we got inside. Came with a blow dryer which my girlfriend was ecstatic about. Light sleepers might have trouble cause the walls are thin so you hear outside traffic, the train, and some of the noise from the other people in the house. But we’re deep sleepers so we had zero problems. Check in and check out were easy and the homeowners were really nice whenever we’d bump into them coming in or out of the house. Don’t count on parking in the drive way unless you have a prius or something that size. I have a pickup truck so I didn’t fit in the driveway but street parking was ridiculously easy to find and right in front of the house. 10/10 overall and will definitely be staying here next time i’m in town! Communication with Gene was also quick and easy!

    Anuar2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • My son and My husband had a very satisfying experience with Gene’s Airbnb accommodation. The detailed instructions were clear and easy to follow. I was a little concerned about the safety of this part of town, but there were no issues. We were able to park the rental car inside the fence. We did not need to use the heater. The accommodations are Spartan (party of two or less best), but worked great for us, we just needed to crash somewhere overnight, and continue fresh the next day. I heard people talking during the night in one of the neighboring apartments, but if you use earplugs or have deep sleep, not an issue. Finally, very convenient to get to either the suburbs of Oakland, or SFO airport.

    Lora2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • We had a perfect stay at genes! Very cute and convenient.

    Zohal2020-02-06T00:00:00Z

The tub with the jets and the cd with the birds was even more of a plus, super calming. Smelled like home, loved all of the decor, it was definitely exactly what I was looking for. Will come back to stay!

Entering the tub requires agility as it is high and you have to stand on a bench, sit on the edge of the tub, and swing your legs around. If you have any questions about that please ask (and see pictures). Lots of natural light with five skylights. Older wooden building with a somewhat rustic feel. The woven grass tatami mat floors have a noticeable smell of dry grass which we find to be lovely, but may not be for everyone. Comfortably sleeps 2 in new all natural foam mattress. Minimal kitchen with small fridge, tea kettle, and small toaster oven. We use fragrance free and non-toxic cleaning materials and provide Dr. Bronners hand soap. There is a fan available for use.
    Peaceful neighborhood just minutes from downtown Berkeley and UC Berkeley. Close to amenities including restaurants, coffee (Philz!), grocery stores, Farmers' market (Thursday afternoons), ice cream parlors, beauty salons, and drugstores.
  • This place is very well designed for its theme. My wife and I only stayed one night and wanted to stay more. The bathtub is uniquely relaxing as well as the skylights through out the place. The moon was so bright that we didn’t use any electricity and let the moonlight shine in. So strongly recommend this place if you’re passing through San Francisco area.

  • Beautiful, relaxing tea house in a quiet spot in Berkeley—would recommend to anyone looking for a weekend getaway

    John2020-04-05T00:00:00Z
  • Zan and Rainbows tea garden is a slice of Japan plopped in the middle of Berkeley. It’s lovely and peaceful; you feel like you’re in a different world. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a different and fun Airbnb experience!

  • Such a cool space! My sister was visiting from Japan so we picked this to give me a bit of a taste, and she really liked it compared to the accommodations like that she has seen in Japan. She said it was basically a bigger version with a more comfortable bed. Check in instructions were very clear and we had a breeze getting in and out.

    This listing is for one bed in a four-person room. This home operates like a hostel. There are three bedrooms, two rooms that sleep four people each, and a private room occupied by a long-term tenant. There are two shared bathrooms, a kitchen, living room and large back yard. The house is a ten-minute walk from the West Oakland BART station which is just one stop (around 8 minutes) from downtown San Francisco. It is also a quick BART ride to downtown Oakland and the nightlife there.
    We started this Airbnb to emulate the hostels found in most of the rest of the world -- inexpensive with few frills, but providing the opportunity to meet fellow travelers from around the world and explore together. Every bed has a shelf, hook, reading lamp, and locker. We will assign you an open bed on the day you arrive, so it doesn't matter which listing you book. The downstairs bedroom has twin-sized two bunk beds; the upstairs bedroom (all the way to the left at the top of the stairs) has two twin beds and one full-sized bunk bed. Please note that because this is a shared room, there there will almost certainly be other people occupying the room. We do not discriminate. There may be people of different sex/race/age/nationality/sexual orientation/political or religious affiliation in the same room, so please don't book if you believe that would be a problem for you. SPECIAL NOTE: We are too small to maintain single-sex rooms, so if you are uncomfortable sleeping in a room with guests of the opposite sex, you should not book with us. It is possible you will be the only person of your gender in a bedroom.
    West Oakland is a developing and diverse neighborhood. Some blocks are more dangerous than others. The half-mile route between the BART train and our house is well-lit and safe; but please exercise caution and maintain awareness of your surroundings. A lone traveller might feel more comfortable taking a taxi or uber after dark. The BART train runs by the house 6 am to midnight and can be loud, especially if the windows are open.
  • It was fine

    Benjamin2020-04-18T00:00:00Z
  • Great value

    Lillian2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • A great, quirky little spot. Shad and Meredith are diligent with upkeep, they’re very pleasant to be around and they’re very responsive to guests’ needs and desires. 5 minute walk to the BART station, 10 or 15 minute walk to the Crucible.

    Filip2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Meredith and she place is the best experience I had in my trip in California. I met magical people and the places is great.

    Lissmar2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place and easy access to Bart

    Bear2019-12-13T00:00:00Z
  • My stay at Meredith and Shad's house has been great. Especially for the hospitality and spontaneity of both. They have treated me like a colleague at all times, they have lent me their bike, we have gone for a walk in Yosemite and they have even invited me to spend Thanksgiving with them !!! I have no words!

    Ruben2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome place close to the city and very friendly environment

    Christian2019-10-30T00:00:00Z

    ~~UPDATE 3/13: Gigabit fiber coming soon! Note that our neighbor’s house is undergoing a full renovation. While it’s not always consistent, you may hear construction noises on weekday mornings.~~ Glamour + camping = glamping! - Centrally located to BART, UCB, & restaurants - BART (7 blocks) to SF in 25 minutes - Wifi, linens, towels, coffee, & tea provided - Big ol' yard with chickens - One of two Airbnb spots here, so you might meet some other travelers! It's like a hostel, but clean. ;)
    Welcome! Enjoy all the comforts of home in this fabulously restored vintage caravan. Come say hi to the chickens, enjoy coffee and tea in the garden. You'll be close to pretty much everything and BART is 7 blocks away. We look forward to hosting you! The house is on the same property where we live with our 2 small children. We are very family friendly. Come glamp in our little slice of country life. This 1964 Kenskill camper has been fabulously restored and customized so you can play "pretend camp" while enjoying the comforts of home. This is a great spot especially if you've ever been tiny-home-curious. In a previous life, this caravan was the food truck for Katie Cupcake, serving up the delicious treats in Flagstaff, AZ. You're sure to enjoy sweet dreams. ;) We rearranged the interior so it feels much more spacious than the traditional layout. It's really quite nice inside. And yes, there's even a full bathroom with a proper flush toilet, sink, and small separate shower. The stall is short so taller folks need to get creative to shower. Towels and linens provided. Mini kitchen has a working gas range, double sink, microwave and fridge. Coffee and tea provided, plus feel free to gather some eggs for breakfast. Watching "chicken TV" is a relaxing way to enjoy the garden. You may encounter our two kitties, Cowboy and Beebop. Our place is one of those homes that's all front yard, and we positioned this trailer so you can sit at the dinette and enjoy a view of the garden and our silly flock of chickens. Some people ask about safety. We've lived in the East Bay for 20 years, sampling the whole socioeconomic spectrum of neighborhoods. We've felt more at home here in this slice of town that we've felt anywhere else in the Bay Area. Put on your city smarts and you should be A-OK. That being said, there are lots of great places to eat and drink nearby whether you want to walk, bike or drive. Three great new restaurants are nearby: Sideshow (excellent beer garden with delicious dinner options), Cassave Restaurant (delish El Salvadoran grub and a full bar) and Easy Creole (casual, tasty, and fast). Our favorite local spot is Sweet Adeline with delicious pastries and tasty coffee. There's another coffee and sandwich shop, Alchemy Cafe next to Easy Creole. It's straight out of Portlandia. On Tuesdays, there's a farmer's market from 3-7pm just a couple blocks away! Venture a little further and hit up the big Temescal Farmer's market on Sunday mornings. Your hosts are two UCB alums and former co-opers. Lewis is a programmer by day, musician by night. Ginger is a Jill of All Trades, ranging from glassblowing to finance. Jules (age 5) and Pasqual (age 3) are our little greeters. We'll leave you to your own devices, but don't hesitate to ask if you need anything. Thanks for looking and happy travels! ***FAQ*** Q. Is there heat? A. Yes, we provide a space heater that keeps it warm and cozy. Q. Is there hot water? A. Yes, there is a dedicated on-demand water heater for the caravan. Q. If we don't want to share the bed, is there room to put a mat on the ground? A. Kind of, but I wouldn't recommend it. You could fit a mat on the walkway to the bathroom, but then you'd have to step on each other to get around! Q. Do you have luggage storage? A. Sure, we can fit a few pieces of luggage in our supply room. Q. Where do I park? A. Parking is onstreet . If you don't get a spot just outside, you can usually find one on the block. Watch for street sweeping signs (a few hours out of the month). Q. Can I bring an animal? A. No. We need to keep the space allergen-free. Q. What about assistance animals? A. Due to past trauma, dogs of any size are not allowed to enter the property as they pose a health and safety risk with our particular circumstances.
    For some reason Airbnb doesn't know how to place us on the map. We're on the same block as Lois the Pie Queen -- a neighborhood fixture and solid greasy spoon diner. Although our neighborhood is not the prettiest, we have a great community and are happy to be raising a family here.
  • Comfortable, adorable, and affordable

    Heather Ann2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place with cozy atmosphere

    Zena2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • It was a very clean and cute caravan. Exactly the same as the picture.

    Neha2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome space. I felt like I had stepped into a portal and hopped back to the 70s, then had my soul licked by a child who was born at a Grateful Dead concert or burning man! I loved it. It’s the Barbie doll caravan that I always wanted for my non existent hippie Barbie!

    Carlie2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing cute spot and super easy check in process!

    Michael2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely loved ginger and Lewis spot it is gorgeous , and cozy, and the bed is super comfy !

    Kelcie2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Definitely a out-of the-norm experience in Oakland. Chickens, gardens, funky/groovy camper that is both unique and functional. Enjoyed the fact that they accommodated a last minute booking, as well as, an additional day which I booked the following morning. Definitely not your run-of the-mill generic hotel room. This place has personality and both privacy and comfort for a memorable experience that is worthy of sharing.

    Daniel2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • I had a great time at Ginger & Lewis's place, they where awesome with communication, location was perfect close to the BART and campervan was so cute with it's little touches. Thanks for a great stay!

    Sunlit private bedroom and bathroom with separate entrance in the Oakland hills
    15 stairs lead up to a private deck where you can sit and watch the trees, deer, turkeys or just the neighbors walking their dogs. The small room has a double bed, best for one person. There is a closet and storage space for your belongings. linens and towels are provided. Small refrigerator and microwave available. Complimentary soap, shampoo and fast wireless internet.

The view is not as great as it used to be but my place continues to be as described. Please make sure you are ok with this. On street parking
    Very private House (owned by host) atop Montclair, two blocks away from Redwood Regional Park. It is a great location for exploring Oakland, easy access to San Francisco ( 16 miles) by car or Bart (10 mins. to Rockridge station). Four min. drive to Montclair Village where you can find restaurants, cafes and other services. Multiple Parks near by, great for hiking and one of the best cycling areas in the Bay. All inquires are welcome!
  • As advertised. Clean quiet, close to hikes and the outdoors. Alma was very friendly.

    Michael2020-04-04T00:00:00Z

    Danielle2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Communicating with Alma prior to the trip was easy with her quick responses. Her directions were helpful along with the GPS of course. Check in was easy. The room was comfy, clean & perfect for a weekend stay. I plan on booking with her on my next trip to Oakland/SF.

    Forget those SF prices and relax in a backyard paradise that's only a short commute to downtown SF! The Redwood Retreat is a spectacular in-law suite in our gorgeous backyard! You'll wake up to birds chirping and squirrels chasing each other around the redwoods. You'll look out the window and see vibrant colors, even a tropical palm tree! You'll have as much privacy as you'd like but are welcomed to say "hi!” This is a residential area, so you’ll need to use ride-sharing or drive to get around.
    This is a secluded in-law suite with a queen-sized bed, TV (with an Amazon Fire TV Stick for Amazon Prime Video, HBO, Netflix, ESPN, etc.), WiFi, alarm clock / radio, mini-fridge, microwave, cozy dining set, Keurig (with K-cups, sugar / stevia, and creamer), board games, books, a nice bathroom (we have energy efficient tankless hot water, so you do have to let the water run for a minute before it gets really hot), soft towels, and some beautiful house plants.
    You're in a safe neighborhood of Oakland only minutes from Lake Merritt, the Dimond District, Downtown Oakland, and even SF. The neighborhood isn't walkable, so having a car or using Uber / Lyft is suggested. Street parking is readily available, as well.
  • Super nice and clean space. Comfy bed!

    Ben2020-05-09T00:00:00Z
  • I really enjoyed staying here. It was a five minute drive to Lake Merritt, which is great for running. The room was as described and sparkling clean. The check-in process was seamless, the neighborhood is safe and there is ample free street parking. Their dogs are also the cutest. Would definitely stay here again.

    Ifeanyi2020-05-07T00:00:00Z
  • The place was clean and neat, and communication with hosts over messenger was good! Instructions provided to get to unit was also clear, we did not have any troubles with arriving and leaving.

    Jeffrey2020-05-02T00:00:00Z
  • This place was very clean and easy to get to even got a parking spot in the driveway I would recommend this to anyone

    Ian2020-04-30T00:00:00Z
  • Great place. I needed a private place where I can take my laptop and work for a couple days, and Ian's place worked out great. It's a small area but perfect for what I needed. Very clean, very private. Its located In the back yard and it's a bit far from the main house. When I stayed up late playing my ps4 online with friends I was a bit loud on the mic but its private enough that I wasn't bothering anyone 👌🏼. Anyways thank you Ian and Tenzing.

    Luis2020-04-23T00:00:00Z
  • 100% recommend! Absolutely excellent amenities and the house itself was easy to navigate and locate. Very private too.

    Becky2020-04-20T00:00:00Z

    Landon2020-04-06T00:00:00Z

    Relax in a private, fully equipped Casita with stunning views of East Oakland and the Bay. This newly constructed one-bedroom guest house in the quiet Eastmont Hills neighborhood has everything you need to work and play. Enjoy lounging in a hammock on the deck or on the couch streaming movies to a 32" television. Brand new stainless steel gas range and full-sized fridge make cooking a breeze, or you can partake in booming Oakland's restaurant scene.
    I've created the Casita to host visiting family and the rest of the year, to host the world! It was such a wonderful experience to be a part of designing and building a unique small house with a spacious feel. I would describe the style as eclectic: rustic elements, like an exposed wooden beam; industrial accents in the lighting and fixtures; and the warmth of Talavera tile and vibrant colors paying homage to Mexico. It's a little over 400 square feet, plus a 11x10 foot deck, which basically adds a room! The washer/dryer and kitchen make it totally self-sufficient for a short or longer stay.
    Eastmont Hills is a diverse neighborhood of well-kept homes below the 580 freeway and several steep blocks above MacArthur boulevard. I've lived in Oakland since 1985 but only recently moved to this neighborhood, in 2017. I find new things to love about it every day! There is an open space park just a half a block away, great for stretching your legs, watching the sunset and taking in the view of Mt. Tamalpais in Marin, four bridges, and the Oakland and San Francisco Skylines. You can hear the mockingbirds singing and the owls hooting, see hawks hovering above the hillside and enjoy the brilliant magenta of bougainvillea that seems to thrive here. To be transparent, it is East Oakland: you may hear occasional sirens from MacArthur Blvd down the hill or the momentary throb of bass from someone driving by enjoying their music a little loud; and you can't leave stuff in your car in plain view and expect it to be there in the morning. It's also not a super convenient neighborhood: public transit is spotty, no restaurants to walk to, and it is a little further away from downtown. That said, I feel safe, the neighbors are way friendlier than my old neighborhood, the Mediterranean climate is lovely and the views spectacular.
  • Wonderful view and nice house

    Hung2020-04-29T00:00:00Z
  • This wonderful location was excellent! Can not say enough good things about my stay here. Super comfortable, stylish space, felt like home, outstanding hospitality!

    Ayla2020-04-25T00:00:00Z
  • The Casita is a charming apartment in a tranquil setting with spectacular views across the Bay. Melia is the ideal host, responsive and discreet. As we had an extended stay due to the COVID 19 restrictions whilst we waited for a return flight to the U.K. we were grateful for Meila’s understanding and very much hope to stay again in less uncertain times!

    Ruth2020-04-11T00:00:00Z
  • Cute decor and a super quiet place to rest up for a great week in the city!

    Leneisha2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • This was a GEM. Inside and outside, I loved every bit of this space! The view of the city was beautiful at night! Thanks so much for opening up your amazing home, Melia.

    Kristin2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful view, wonderful people, amazing experience. I stayed with the host for a month, and could have stayed a whole year. The view is breathtaking and never repeats itself. I walked a two mile look at 5 am every morning finishing at the peak four doors from the house. Amazing, kind and responsive host who understands guests, and provide all the necessary amenities plus more. Thank you so much for sharing your home. And I hope our paths cross someday again. Be well.

    Naikang2020-02-27T00:00:00Z

    Come enjoy our comfortable, private, light-filled studio in-law unit. Cook light meals in our fully-stocked kitchenette (microwave, mini-fridge, sink and stove-top--pots/pans/dishes all included), a full bathroom with tub, wi-fi and cable TV and Netflix (HBO/Roku). Enjoy hill views from the front deck. Stay in a quiet and safe neighborhood in the woodsy hills of Oakland. Close to the Warriors, A's, Oakland Airport, East Bay hiking and all major freeways, and BART. Only 15 miles to downtown SF.
    Sunny studio below our family home in a well-established, friendly neighborhood. 2.8 miles to BART. 20-25 minute drive to San Francisco (with no traffic). Perfect for your mother-in-law or visiting family/friends. A bit off the beaten path in the woodsy, Oakland hills, yet close to all the best of the Bay Area! Please note: Since the studio is below our living room, you can hear footsteps above. The house was built in 1924 so creaking and vibrations are unavoidable. We did install a sound-proofing rug pad, have a thick wool rug, and recently added ceiling insulation, but we have young children and, although we are conscientious of our guests below, foot traffic will likely still be heard -- especially in the early mornings. The rest of the neighborhood is very quiet at night and there is little street noise which is rare for Oakland's urban setting.
    This is a friendly family neighborhood filled with kids, dogs and long-time residents. We love the neighborhood playground and the park-like feel of the wooded views. It is close to all major transportation needs and minutes away from the best hiking in the Oakland hills!
  • When I think of the Bay Area, this is what I imagine. Perfect location! Perfect instruction. Comfortable bed and lots of places to eat. I hope it’s available next visit for work.

    Jasmine2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • This place is awesome! Very Cozy and sparkling clean. Perfect spot for a quick stay or long trip. Has all the amenities

    Anthony2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Amy’s place is extremely clean, orderly, and attractive. It was ease to check in and out. I appreciated the written guidelines and information.

    Delia2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Amy's studio is cozy, clean and comfortable. All interactions were smooth and timely. The bed was super comfy and the kitchen space had everything we needed for our short stay. The location is close to Joaquin Miller Park, where we had a great time hiking. The family neighborhood was close to markets and fun restaurants. We could hear Amy's family above us but it was not loud or intrusive at all. A sweet space, nicely set up.

    Judie2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Amy was easy to communicate with. The check-in was very clear and easy to follow. She briefly greeted me upon arrival, watch was appreciated. And the space overall was perfect for my short stay!

    96%+ 5-Star & 98%+ 4-5-Stars! **WORTH IT. READ REVIEWS.** SF Bay views from your well-appointed room. The Guest House (apt) is steps from the beach. As quiet as it comes this close to the city, yet still accessible to SF: Driving or Lyft/BART(train) 30 -45 min; Bus/BART 45-60 min. SFO: 60-90 min. Guests often take the ferry. Free street parking. Check-in & checkout often flexible--check w/host in advance! Car strongly recommended, not required. Also: https://airbnb.com/h/bayviews
    Welcome to The Green Dragon Guest House! Frequent AirBnBers who stay at The Green Dragon Guest House often tell me “This is the best AirBnB I’ve ever stayed at.” I also have a number of repeat guests here on business who come back again and again. Now, there are definitely more “posh” AirBnBs out there. The Green Dragon Guest House is not for everyone (check out the photos to get a sense of the decor). But for those who it IS for, it is a gem. Super-comfortable bed, relaxing and peaceful environment, freshly laundered linens, clean spaces, special touches such as an large overhead shower and Qi chargers on the nightstand, organic soaps, shampoo and conditioner, and breakfast essentials included (that you make yourself) with sourdough toast, pasture-raised eggs, organic oatmeal and organic fair trade coffee and teas. [From our wonderful guests] December 2019 "Beautiful, enchanting guest house with great views of the beach. Excellent service. Everything you need within walking distance. Excellent value with all of the amenities anyone could possibly need. All of my needs were met beyond expectation. Could not have asked for more." "Being at the Guest House felt like being home, to me." "It was one of the most restful stays I have ever had while traveling, and I travel a LOT." "Definitely recommend this place. Has all utilities you need for a comfortable stay. Chill and relaxing vibe near the shore. Love all the organic soaps and shampoos. Vibe is great and you have your own space." [Welcome] The Green Dragon Guest House is not for everyone, but for those whom it is for, it may be exactly what you are looking for: A moderate price for a relaxing, gentle place to stay (including organic soaps, bathrobes and a truly comfortable bed) in a neighborhood that has all the amenities you need, plus immediate access to one of the only beaches in the SF Bay Area. Or, as a recent guest put it: "beyond my expectations." This being said, we are not a hotel; we are a guest house. We are also not the cheapest AirBnb on the market. But we also are not even close to being the most expensive--and if you book late and are lucky enough for us to still have availability, then you're in for a low-priced treat. If you are really looking for the right place to stay for a few days to a few weeks, consider studying the photo tour of the guest house, and perhaps take a look at our website: Green Dragon Guest House Dot Info. They can help you decide if the Green Dragon Guest House is the right place for you. Guests sometimes report two “downsides” to staying here. They are 1) that you may have to walk around the corner, or cross a few very short blocks to get to and from your car, as parking immediately near the guest house can fill up in late afternoon or early evening. The walk is typically no more than 3 minutes, and is about the same distance I walk to get to my own car. As long as you don’t leave bags visible in your car, parking here is quite aafe. And 2) the drive to San Francisco can take 30 - 60 minutes, sometimes longer if at the peak of rush hour or if there is an accident on the freeway. During rush hour, the local ferry is often faster and offers a beautiful ride to and from.. For tourists this distance often means choosing between the guest house’s comfort, relaxation, relative quiet and beauty (and a beach!) over “being in the heart of it all” and paying for that privilege (as city prices are often double ours, or more). [And, here are all the basics:] The view and immediate proximity to Crown State Beach make this space truly special. Your bedroom has a view of the Bay, and the large windows off the living room look out at a view that spans the Central Bay Area, from Silicon Valley on up to downtown San Francisco and the Bay Bridge. You are immediately across the street from a nearly mile long state beach, where sunsets are stunning! Your bed is also super comfortable, according to other guests who have stayed here. You have your own room, and the rest of the apartment is shared space, with either your host and/or other guests staying here (there can be up to 5 people in total in the apartment). A stay at the Green Dragon Guest House includes breakfast "essentials" such as french press coffee, tea, cream, sourdough bread, jam, butter and eggs, provided for your use (and your own cooking).
    Relatively quiet and suburban, right next to the beach. During the day the street is fairly busy, but it is no freeway by any means. We are an easy 15 minute/one-half mile walk and/or short drive to the nearest mall which includes a 24-hour Safeway, a Trader Joe's open from 8am to 9pm, and a Chipotle Mexican Grill restaurant for healthy fast food. Though the street outside does have modest traffic on it during the day, at night it quiets down, making it sometimes difficult to remember that Oakland is only about 7 minutes away. There are also a number of restaurants in walking distance including a Chipotle Mexican Grill and a great sushi restaurant. The Trabacco Restaurant serves elegant rustic Italian, perfect for a special night out followed by a walk home.
  • Great space, beautiful view, thoughtful touches!

    Katherine2020-05-03T00:00:00Z
  • One of the best ‘room’ stay with AIRBNB so far. Robes, organic breakfast, bidet. View of the beach from the room to watch windsurfer and sunset. Completely safe to walk along beach at any hour. Read the extension and thoughtful website Markus put up for convenience and you will have all of your questions answered!

    Katherine2020-04-12T00:00:00Z
  • Markus is the best host I’ve encountered in a ton of traveling, and the kindest human you’ll likely encounter. Also, the master of labeling everything.

    Desire2020-03-28T00:00:00Z
  • Markus was an amazing host and made transitions during my stay easy. The thoughtfulness he put from decor to check-in/check-out is beyond hotel experience. The space was really clean and quiet with a gorgeous view of the beach and San Francisco. The room was spacious and clean. Markus was really quick to respond to any questions I had about the space and any other accommodations that I needed. Highly recommend this host for future stays!

    Debbie2020-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • I definitely recommend this place. Beautiful! Marcus is an excellent host!

    Victoria2020-03-14T00:00:00Z

    Welcome to my cozy Urban yurt, conveniently located near major bus lines and Ferry services to San Francisco. Offering a simple escape amidst all the craziness that is the bay area! A private fenced-in Courtyard with sink, bathroom and shower. large side yard with seating and fire chimney. Inside the yurt you have a simple kitchenette with utensils, plates, microwave/fridge. Above the couch/bed there's discrete speaker and shelves all around for storage. Small yet cozy! Guaranteed fun. 420 ok :)
    Very tranquil setting that'll have you forgetting your in the middle of a city. Located on a quiet street with family type pedestrian traffic, near parks and Waterfront trails.
    Quiet, intimate, friendly and family oriented. Access to Waterfront views and parks in all directions.
  • Ethan was a great host! The yurt was charming and the perfect oasis during such a weird time in the world. Definitely recommend!

    Mikayla2020-05-06T00:00:00Z
  • This place is very special. Great host.

    Lori2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Outstanding space! A lot of love and attention has been put into all the little DIY details. The bed was outstandingly comfortable and the space was a cozy respite from the road. I highly recommend it!

    Michael2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Fun and funky. When you settle in to the private courtyard you forget you’re in the city. You could be in a mountain cabin in the woods. Ethan and Craig are friendly and pleasant hosts.

    David2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Just need a place to crash for an appointment in Oakland, sad I only stayed one night. This was a neat little place to crash. Just what I needed.

    Rebecca2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Really neat place! We have never stayed anywhere like it! Would definitely want to come back for the whole experience again in the future.

    Christy2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • The yurt is such a lovely space! It was very relaxing and we enjoyed every moment. Ethan is a great host! He is very knowledgeable about the area. Highly recommend!

    Stephanie2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • The yurt was perfect. It had such a magical vibe! Everything was clean and the bed was crazy comfortable. Air bnb caused some scheduling issues and Ethan was super quick and flexible about fixing it. Amazing host & amazing property- I’ll definitely be back ✌🏼✨

    2nd best stay in the bay! The former home of a music legend, this mountainside villa is the ideal place to get away from it all; close to Downtown Oakland, just across the bridge from San Francisco. Quiet, beautiful, modular space and surroundings fit for 70s era royalty, with some modern touches. If you are interested in recording packages, please inquire through our other listing, "Historic Rock n Roll Fantasy Camp". Otherwise, stay on the line and we'll get right back to you.
    The unit is extremely versatile and can transform from a full service music and film studio to an extremely comfortable hillside getaway with some of the greatest amenities. Just to be clear, this is a recording studio (both in the past and presently, however, this listing DOES NOT include "formal studio time, such as full rehearsals and/or recording packages). The live room can be used for meetings or as a large size bedroom/living room combo and the spacious deck can be used to lounge, throw darts or enjoy spectacular dining with view. -The property is secured with multiple cameras around the exterior. If you are a registered guest, these measures have been taken for both your safety and privacy. This unit will fit just about any need, let us know how can we transform the space to fit your needs. Going, going, gone.
    This neighborhood is one of the most scenic and quietly reserved the bay area has to offer. Sweeping views of the valley and gorgeous surroundings combine to make this stay magical. Whether it be the wild turkeys squawking about, dear battling the steep terrain, or endless bird watching, this studio retreat is one of a kind. It doesn't get much better than this.
  • Joe is an amazing host!

    Charles2020-04-17T00:00:00Z

    Starshae2020-03-25T00:00:00Z
  • Joe and his family were great and super hospitable. We had everything we needed. The small kitchen is fully stocked with everything you would need for your stay. The Montclair hills are beautiful. You should stop off at their restaurant down the hill, Taps and Takeout. Cheers!

    Farschad2020-03-21T00:00:00Z

    Clean and light-filled one bedroom apartment in KONO neighborhood. Less than a mile to BART (0.9 miles) and half a block to the bus, this centrally located apartment is perfect for commuting to downtown Oakland, Berkeley or San Francisco.
    This 1906 Victorian home was renovated in 2011 and is split into three separate units. The available unit has beautiful wood floors and a full kitchen. The apartment can comfortably fit two people on a queen sized bed in the bedroom. A futon in the living room could sleep up to two more guests for an additional charge. Towels, sheets and bedding are provided. Parking is on the street and is free. Out back we are experimenting with urban homesteading and have a large garden, chickens and occasionally turkeys! Don't worry, we have no roosters and it's very quiet inside the apartment. Adjacent to the house is the freeway and BART tracks but inside the apartment you do not hear anything. The house has double-pane windows and a gas heater.
    The neighborhood is up and coming, situated between downtown Oakland and Berkeley. Within a few blocks are numerous restaurants, coffee shops with wi-fi, bars, a halal market, and public transportation. Downtown Oakland is a vibrant area with music, night life, delicious restaurants and a thriving art scene. We recommend Burma Superstar for dining and visiting the New Parkway Theater for watching particular movies in a comfy couch while being served food. Also Lane Splitter is fantastic for a good pizza and the Scottish pub down the street has amazing beers and a great lamb pie. Going west from the house is a little rough but east along Telegraph Ave is a great street all the way north to Berkeley and south to downtown Oakland.
  • I couldn’t have found a better spot for my son and I, to reconnect and decompress for a couple of days after his arrival home from boarding school due to this current crisis. This Airbnb was cozy, so convenient, spotless, and had every amenity we needed! Everything works as well! The bed in the bedroom is heaven, and the futon is comfortable as a sofa or bed. Perfect size kitchen with all the extras! The location is perfect for getting to Lake Merritt where we spent a lot of time, bus line at the corner, and Bart not to far away, good food everywhere in this part of Oakland. Jade and Joe were very responsive to any requests we had during our stay. Highly recommend

    Vivian2020-04-20T00:00:00Z
  • Charming apartment near downtown. Easy access to grocery stores. Host was very responsive!

    Peter2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Loved staying here! The apartment is adorable and had everything we needed for our stay. The location is great and we were able to walk to the BART station very easily. Would definitely come back again next time I need a place in California.

    Mikayla2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • The place was perfect for my trip! Exactly what I needed, and everything was smooth as can be. Great location too, I was able to walk to anything I needed.

    Brady2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • For quick business travel and short, fun stays, Joe and Jade's apartment is very conveniently located, quite clean, and was more than comfortable for my colleague and me. While parking on the street is free, a smaller car may work better as parallel parking can get tight. And, while the neighborhood seems to be on the come-up, those intimidated by those less fortunate on the streets might be uncomfortable in the neighborhood. However, we didn't experience any problems and Joe and Jade's property is well secured. We felt safe the entire time and enjoyed our stay. Would stay again.

    Jason2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was enjoyable and as-advertised. A lovely place in a cool neighborhood!

    Damian2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Great space and great location. Just like the photos. The hosts are responsive and accommodating but not all up in your business, which I appreciate. The place gets amazing light. It’s also really nice and quiet. A really relaxing place to come back to after a day full of work and meetings. I’d highly recommend.

    Michelle2020-01-15T00:00:00Z

  • This house is super nice especially for the value and is up on a hill near the Oakland zoo the view is absolutely amazing and the bedrooms are all the same size there is only one bathroom in the living room does not have a TV which is the only downside but it has a good size kitchen and there are TVs in both the guest bedroom we had an issue with the shower working with hot water but the host was able to communicate quickly and allow us to stay until the issue is fixed And gave us a very generous for our late check out so we could use the shower will definitely review and cannot be more grateful for such a quick response from host can’t wait to book again in the future

  • Wow, best Airbnb experience ever!! This house looks 10x better than the pictures. Love how it’s decorated and generally has a great vibe. Backyard is the largest and most beautiful I’ve ever seen, there’s hammocks, weights, bbq, jacuzzi, books, Pac-Man, ping pong, a small chicken farm, a dog, etc you’ll never get bored here even if you never leave the house. Never met the hosts but they were responsive and helpful and check in process was easy. Hope to be back

    Mona2020-04-15T00:00:00Z
  • If you're using the Bart it is about a 10-15 minute walk from their place and a 7$Uber if you prefer. I was here for 2 weeks and walked everyday and it was totally fine! The room and bathroom are right at the entrance so that's a definite bonus!

    Tatyana2020-02-16T00:00:00Z

    Step through the private entrance and into an interior filled with light, original art and all the comforts of home. Set on the ground floor of a newly renovated 1889 home, the many welcoming touches include a snack basket and air diffusers. Fix your own meals in the kitchenette or stroll to dozens of restaurants just blocks away.
    The studio has a queen bed, a standing closet, a table for two and a kitchenette. It is accessible through its own entrance. The kitchenette includes a mini fridge/freezer, microwave, two burner stove, tea kettle, coffee press, pots & pans and place settings for two. There is a cozy bathroom with a shower. This space also includes wifi. The ceiling height is 6 feet 3 inches throughout the apartment and slightly less at the entry doorway. We live upstairs and you will likely hear the occasional footstep (it isn't a cottage in the woods). Street parking is usually found within a block of the unit.
    Stroll to a choice of dozens of proprietor-owned restaurants, along with bookstores and the historic Alameda Theater. Go half a mile to reach South Shore Center, with Trader Joe's, Safeway, and other big-brand outlets. The beach is a 15-minute walk.
  • Sparklingly clean home with a very attentive and caring host. Great location, as well. Couldn’t ask for better!

    Wycliffe2020-04-25T00:00:00Z

    It's a min away from UC BERKELEY and 15 mins walk to downtown Berkeley Bart station. Great place for someone looking for quiet and cozy place. Complimentary tea provided from House Of Curries ( restaurant located downstairs)
    The room has attached private bathroom.
    Berkeley city is usually student friendly area. It is also one of the safest area I know.
  • Bishal responds extremely fast! The room is what it is! Simple and cheap. Probably best if you just need a place to sleep and head out since the rooms pretty bare!

    Yu2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent location for Berkeley,very vibrant safe area.Relaxed and friendly, you’re literally minutes and in many cases seconds away from things.The Belgian waffles down the street were awesome ! Bishal was a friendly helpful host.The room was exactly as advertised.Water pressure was great in the shower.A few things that did surprise me.The room was very cool even during those crazy few heatwave days we just had.Secondly It was very quiet in there,and also I had imagined being above a Indian restaurant to be constantly smelling food and spices but that was not the case at all.I would stay at Bishals again it was great value.

    David2019-06-30T00:00:00Z

    A private in-law studio with own entrance close to everything: Ashby Bart (0.6 miles), Bay Bridge on-ramp, Emeryville, Rockridge, Berkeley, Telegraph Ave, and UC Berkeley. It's a cozy, clean, and minimalist space with a queen bed, new modern bathroom, and kitchenette (fridge, kitchen sink, kettle, microwave, and counter space). The kitchenette is stocked with flatware, plates, mugs, glasses, bowls, coffee cone and filters, and dish soap. Plenty of parking on street directly outside of in-law.
  • This apartment had an easy check-in process and was sparkling clean! my boyfriend really loved the shower (he's weird and always needs to have good shower pressure LOL). we were right where we needed to be near my friends house. if you ever stay here, definitely check out the Wolfhound Bar for drinks and Lois the Pie Queen for breakfast/food!

    Bridget2020-03-16T00:00:00Z

    Located in a residential area, we're centrally located--close to the beach, marina, and restaurants. You’ll love the comfy bed, the high ceilings, and peacefulness. My place is good for adventurers and business travelers. We respectfully ask that you book elsewhere if you have animals because we are highly allergic. House is not child-proof and inappropriate for guests with children. We have repeat business travelers who depend on a quiet atmosphere.
    This is a room located in a light-filled, upper flat in a residential neighborhood, There is a shared bathroom, shared kitchen for light meal prep (microwave and fridge, no stove), and a living room. I live on site.
    It's a lovely small city to walk or bike located 15 miles from San Francisco's Civic Center. The architecture is mixed with most of it from about 100+ years ago in the area where I live. A walk to the beach is 15 minutes away. From there you can walk about 3+ miles in either direction following the beach along the bay. You can get some lovely views of SF. We have a variety of restaurants for even discerning palates with the restored 1930’s historic cinema located near the Park St. restaurant district. Walking distance from here, about 7 blocks is a tiki lounge called the Forbidden Island. They have gone all out with the décor, which transports you instantly to a small island in the Pacific. Alameda is a terrific place to unwind after a long day in the city.
  • Quite, plenty of parking, close to take out food

    A sanctuary in the city and entirely too close to the best shopping. Grocery store, Target, Home Depot, the movie theater, and Ikea are fewer than five minutes away. This location is also close to public transportation whether your destination is Berkley or San Francisco, you can get anywhere from here! Oakland International Airport is also a quick rideshare app away. You also have access to two bathrooms, a large communal kitchen and large communal living room. Welcome home!
    Charming space with a double bed for a single person or a couple. Included are fluffy towels, shampoo, body wash, washcloths, extra blankets are in the trunk including an electric blanket on the bed.
    Our block is surrounded by churches and there is shopping less than one half mile away where you can buy groceries, burgers, pizza and panda. Well... not an actual panda... you know what I mean.
  • Great host, lovely stay, would recommend :)

  • I sent this stay to my son who enjoyed it very much.

    Ted2020-04-18T00:00:00Z
  • Pretty cozy and good for the price! Relatively close to San Francisco and Target is just around the corner.

  • Convenient location, only a 15 minute walk to the MacArthur BART station. Good value with a receptive, experienced host.

  • This was my first time doing a shared space and couldn’t have had it be a better experience. Being in someone’s actual home made the decor a lot cozier and less artificial. I didn’t have any bad run ins with anybody. It was affordable and perfect for simply needing a place to sleep/shower. Not to mention the kitchen is beautiful and fully equipped. My only complain would be the parking. It seems that there is parking on the actual premises however it’s not recommended since it’s double parking. You will most likely have to find street parking, but make sure you read the signs.

    Arzu2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Omar was so thoughtful! He knew I'm traveling with my baby so I found diapers in the bathroom. It's such a sweet gesture that made my trip so much easier. The place is in a great location if you want to stay close to SF.

    Completely separate lower portion of house with private entrance. One large room and master bedroom suite with bathroom and walk-in closet. Quiet neighborhood in a woodsy area - eucalyptus grove and other vegetation around. 5 minute drive or 15-20 minute walk to Montclair Village with lots of restaurants and shops. Many hiking trails nearby. Easy access to freeway and 10 minutes driving to public transportation. About 35 stairs down to the unit.
    Quiet neighborhood, great for walks. No sidewalks and lots of trees - deer, squirrel, birds, fox live in the neighborhood too!
  • A great place in Oakland hills! A balcony looking out to Eucalyptus trees was a bonus. Meredith was accommodating and quick to response.

    Welcome to the serene and peaceful CozyOak Studio in Redwood Heights, Oakland CA. A good space to relax, rejuvenate and create. Tucked behind a long driveway (that houses the cutest 13' Scamp Trailer) and our main house, CozyOak studio sits between a beautiful majestic Oak tree and a Tall stoic Redwood. You can sit and take in lovely views of the Bay or visit stunning hiking trails. Close to Mills College, you can walk to sweet local places to eat, drink and shop.
    The Studio is a private one room space, a converted garage that was once a art-space / music studio and now a sweet living unit to enjoy. The studio has a comfortable full size bed, full bathroom w/shower & tub, day bed (best for kids or naping adults) writing desk and a lovely sitting porch for watching the Bay views. It's a great space for 1 to 2 people and small child. Set about 50 ft behind our house in our backyard, the Studio is in a neighborhood but it feels secluded like you're in the country and because it sits between two large trees, an Oak and a Redwood it feels very secluded. It's quiet, cozy and comfortable. Also - we are located on a steep hill which makes for great views but can be a vigorous climb if you should want to walk and explore the neighborhood. I walk it everyday with our pup but that's the sort of walk I enjoy :-) Thanks!
    The Redwood Heights / Laurel neighborhood of Oakland is a sweet family-friendly community. Easy to walk to local favorites; Degrees Plato, a locally-owned, bottle shop, taproom, and kitchen, Everett & Jones and the new 4505 BBQ joints, Community Table (one of our favorites) Santana's Coffee Roaster & World Ground coffee shops and the wonderful breakfast spot (another one of our favorites) Sequoia Diner. Also great for hiking: Joaquin Miller Park, Leona Canyon (walking distance) and Redwood & Sibley Volcanic Regional Parks
  • K&B. Excellent hostess, We had a really good experience, the place is perfect, romantic, clean, lovely setting and safe. Thanks for all.♡♡

    Santa2020-04-26T00:00:00Z
  • WOW! My partner and I absolutely adored staying at The Cozy Oak :) Such a stylish, cozy little place Kofy and Margaret have created in the back of their home! They were lovely people who gave sent us home with a bundle of rosemary and lemons. It was the perfect location for picking up my boyfriend from the Oakland Airport. Looking forward to staying here again whenever we are in the are!

    Isabelle2020-04-14T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay and these people are sweet and easy and accommodating

    Lexi2020-04-09T00:00:00Z

    Ei Ei2020-04-04T00:00:00Z
  • This gem of a stay was beyond expectations. Great communication, easy check in, super clean and a perfect place to relax and hide from the rain. After staying, I believe my standards are now broken and forever ruined. The hosts deserve this honest review but my selfish side almost didn’t want it up because now everyone else is going to book this place solid. Pleasure to stay

    James2020-03-29T00:00:00Z
  • What a beautiful gem! Beautiful view! Felt like we were on a retreat. From the throw blankets to the face wash, to the coffee provided, was quality!! Definitely hope to stay here again in the future.

It's full of tours, events, youth programs and interactive museum exhibits. The six-acre park is made up of three areas the historic core adobe area, 1870 Peralta House and the Peralta Creek nature area. FOOD One of the most beautiful things about Fruitvale, the taco trucks! Fruitvale is home to quite a few so we suggest sampling all over. A few of our favorites are Taqueria Sinaola, Guadalajara, and Pipirin. ART Hit the streets as Fruitvale boasts some of the best street art/murals in Oakland. The Rue de Merde, (which technically is in the adjacent neighborhood, Jingletown) is a mural wall composed of nearly a dozen murals and mosaics. NEAREST GROCERY Supermercado Mi Tierra, only 3 blocks away. NEAREST LAUNDROMAT Washtime Coin Laundry, also only 3 blocks away.
  • The airbnb was great for my 2nd stay. The hospitality and communication from host was TERRIBLE. Despite me checking in early, I was not giving no support or accommodation throughout my stay. Hospitality would be a rate of 0. But the stay was great

    Cute little apartment tucked away behind another building.

  • Had a good time, the space was cute and very clean. Easy to find

    Olivia2020-04-01T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment was clean and organized. It’s a convenient location if you’re working or needing to be in downtown Oakland. The kitchen has a coffee pot, pots & pans, utensils, dishes, etc. which I found helpful being able to stay in and cook!

    Rayn2020-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • Great location and clean little casita. Would recommend it.

    Sam2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Over all, I was quite pleased with my stay. The accommodation was very clean, organized, and tidy. It has a very comfortable bed and pillows. This place is right around the corner from a lot of really good restaurants, so the fact that there is no range for cooking is only a small inconvenience if you like dining out. Keith is very prompt and efficient in his communication. I would stay here again.

    Maynard2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • This was a good deal for the neighborhood. Close to the BART and ideal for a quick business trip, very nice interior and decor. Would stay again.

    Andrew2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • This stylish apartment tucked away in Oakland's Temescal is conveniently located within walking distance of lots of restaurants and shops. It is stocked with the essential amenities, perfect for a night or two getaway.
