This place was ideal for me as I wanted somewhere near Lake Merritt, affordable, don’t mind a shared entrance, bathroom, living space and cats. This place would suit someone who is quiet as neighbors have quiet hours and the walls are thin. The communication with Alyza was respo…

I had a wonderful month long stay with Alyza and her cats, Poppy and Jack! My bedroom was spacious. The bed was comfortable! There’s a lot of closet space, drawers and bookshelves. We shared the bathroom. This was not a problem. Alyza is very considerate. The kitchen is neat and…

Had a lovely time staying with Alyza! Her home is cozy and welcoming; I really appreciated the decorating style, the willingness to share little things like Tupperware and spices, and of course the kitties 😻😻

Hi Yesica, thanks for your feedback, this is the first comment I've received about cleanliness and hasn't been an issue with past guests. You are absolutely right about the microwave, I hadn't noticed b/c it's on top of fridge and too high for me to see it's condition. Aside from that, the apartment had been fully cleaned before you arrived. I want to clarify that the bathroom sink wasn't broken or non-functional. The drain stop, for some reason, stayed plugged and had to be lifted in order for water to drain. Glad the rest of your stay was pleasant and thanks for feeding the kitties in the morning before you left.

The neighborhood is awesome: right next to Lake Merritt if you want to go for a run, close to cool bars and restaurants, and public transportation is very accessible. The room was spacious and it had everything I needed. The apartment is very nicely decorated. Alyza was a great…
