Great house for families/friends, or business retreat in Oakland hills
3 Bedroom, 2 full bath house with beautifully updated kitchen and eat-in area for up to 7. Enjoy al fresco dining and relax on large patio surrounded by beautiful garden. Heat lamp and grill included. Master bedroom and bath on separate upstairs …
Comfortable home in the Oakland Hills, perfect for the night's rest after seeing the Bay Area's sites. A much preferred option than a hotel for our family (of five) vacation. A spacious, clean kitchen, a comfortable living room, 3 bedrooms and a private yard and patio made this home the perfect home away from home for our stay in the Bay Area.
We had such a great weekend at this beautiful house. Family came from all over and enjoyed the comfort of the house and the peacefulness of the backyard garden. Everyone felt very at home here. The neighborhood is lovely and one of the best in Oakland as far as safety and beauty. Its super close to rockridge and the bart station but still set back in a quiet environment.
Thanks for a wonderful weekend!
I recently stayed at this lovely house with a group of friends (three couples, two babies, one three year old) when we were in Oakland for a wedding. The house was perfect -- the rooms are beautifully put together and each room affords everyone their own little private area. With three kids in the house, two of them babies waking up all hours of the night, we really needed something that would accommodate all of us and that's exactly what we got -- we were enormously relieved each morning to find that no crying babies had disturbed anyone's sleep. The kitchen is a fantastic gathering spot, as are the deck and backyard. The owner of the home could not be more gracious or helpful. In my sleep-deprived state I left several items, which she graciously found and mailed back to me. Chuck in the exquisite views of the Bay and San Francisco at sunset, the beautiful neighborhood and comfortable beds and this spot can't be beat! On top of all of this, there's an adorable high-end grocery store nearby, a lovely area with restaurants etc., and a really sweet park and playground. We were in and out of San Francisco and it was incredibly easy. Thank you so much VRBO for introducing us to such a great spot, one we'll surely visit again!
I recently rented this house for a group of friends who were coming to town. Kathleen, the owner, was very nice and informative. I got such a good vibe from her, that it was one of the reasons I chose this property. The house was exactly as described and the photos were all accurate. We loved the big, beautiful backyard. I would absolutely recommend this house to others, and my friends have already talked about renting it again in the future!
Excellent accommodations, amenities, view! Beds were comfortable and the home was clean. I would stay there again.
My husband and I recently rented this property for ourselves and some guests at our wedding. Kathleen's home essentially became the bridal suite. This home is beautiful, charming and the amount of space was just right. We have received nonstop praise for the home by our guests and those who stopped by on our wedding day. This home is conveniently located near a smalll business area. We are very familiar with the area because we live near there and can tell you it is a safe and relaxing neighborhood. The home is also priced right.
What made the experience most enjoyable was the owner Kathleen. She was very prepared, welcoming and a wonderful person all around.
If you are planning a stay in the Bay Area, we would certainly recommend this home. We wish we could get married every year so we could stay in Kathleen's house.
We recently moved from the Bay Area and this was a perfect home to settle in for a weekend with a reunion of our grown sons from both coasts. The occasion was seeing a Cal football game in the newly remodeled stadium. The house is charming, cozy and just like the photos. The owner is gracious and so helpful, the house was very clean and the yards are beautifully maintained. We would love to return again and would certainly recommend it to our friends and relatives.
My 2 cousins and I needed a nice place to stay which would also be a good place to have some people over who live in the bay area for an informal get together. This lovely home more than lived up to our expectations and satisfied our needs perfectly! Neat, clean, bright, spacious without being enormous, with a great kitchen and backyard garden which was perfect for entertaining guests...we can't say enough nice things about this home and Kathleen, the owner. She was so helpful and left us all kinds of good information to make our stay easy and just like home! The location is super, not far from airport and BART and the Bay Bridge. We would recommend this to anyone who wants a nice, real "home away from home"!
Not much to say here, except: Rent this place!
We were 3 adults, a toddler and a 6 year old, and it was a great solution for our 3 night stay. But - this would be the kind of place that would be *superb* for a week or two, or even longer. It is stocked with great furnishings, kitchen stuff, Wifi, beautiful, bright rooms, and plenty of places to lounge (including a couple decks, yards, and a TV lounge in the basement.
We even had a small garden party with old Berkeley friends, where the outdoor patio was a perfect setting (with fruit trees, top-of-the-line furniture, barbecue, and even outdoor heater!)
You'd probably want to have a car, if you stay here - although there is a bus service to Montclair just a couple blocks away. Also - there are steep stairways to upstairs "master room" (although there's a very nice room at ground level, as well), and down to the basement.
The owner is quite nice, as well - supported our stay and kept in touch by email or phone as needed.
If there were 6 stars, I'd give that rating.
CHARMING, UNIQUE 1BR HOUSE WITH AMAZING VIEWS, SLEEPS 5 The House
The one bedroom and one bath house was originally built on the East Coast. In 1906, the house was dismantled, and shipped to San Francisco via freighter around Cape Horn, where it was reassembled on its current site.
Spacious modern house southern part of town, BART This is our main residence and we are happy to offer it to guests of San Francisco during the time we are traveling. It is a very spacious and tastefully furnished house on multiple levels. It is in the southern part of town, very close to both 101 and 280, as well as 19th Avenue. Closest BART station is Glen Park and is 3-4min drive. SFO airport is 15-20min drive away.
Large living room with a fireplace and couches that invite you to kick up and discuss the events of the day. Floor to ceiling windows as well as skylights fill the upper level with light. Southern exposure.
Beautifully remodeled kitchen with all necessary appliances and tools. Adjacent breakfast room with a most unusual and fun feature - a huge white wall you can draw on! Beautiful patio just outside offers a quiet spot to relax in a retreat atmosphere. Large dining room with lots of space and a large dining table that can accommodate 8 persons very comfortably for a more formal meal.
The large master bed room is on the top floor and has a luxurious bathroom in suite. Cal King bed. Views from the balcony reach the Bay on one side, and the Ocean on the other.
Two newly remodeled kids bedrooms on the lower level - one twin bed in each and a modern bathroom right outside.
The house is unusual in the sense that there is plenty of room, yet only four proper places to sleep. There is PLENTY of space though to put an additional mattresses or two, and there are two more couches. Let me know the size of your party and I'd respond with suggestions.
The house is a wonderful landing pad to come back to after a busy day of sightseeing or exploring Napa, Marine or Muir Woods. The water front is 10-15min one way (Ocean Beach) and 20min drive the other way - 19th Ave will take you straight to Golden Gate Bridge and Crissy Field. The Bay Bridge and the Ferry Building are 15min away.
The house is located halfway between two neighborhoods with their own distinct character - Glen Park and West Portal. Both offer a variety of restaurants and a short drive north will bring you into Noe Valley with yet more choices. San Francisco is - for some surprisingly - a rather small town, so a short drive will get you into a very different neighborhood within just minutes.
The beach is 12-15min away from the house. And if you want to leave the car behind, bus #23 will take you there without any changes.
