Very nice, large garden apartment on a lovely residential street in Oakland's hip Temescal neighborhood. A beautiful yard to relax in, close to great restaurants and the expressway. Everything was comfortable. The kitchen well stocked and the host was very responsive. I guess sometimes there is a glitch with the address shown on the map by the app, although Sharon sent the correct address in advance of our stay. We would definitely stay here again. Also, one of the beds is a little small for 2, but the pull out couch is very comfy, which made the apartment perfect for 4 adults! Overall, great host and a great stay! Highly recommended!

This place is perfect for unwinding after a long day! It was spacious for three people and we loved the back patio area, perfect for some quiet time after a day out together. It was centrally located and easy to get to public transit, groceries, even the Oakland Public Library when we needed to print something. Fantastic place if you need to spend some time working from or relaxing at a home base in addition to seeing the Bay Area!

Sharon was very communicative from the start! I messaged her on Airbnb for additional info before we left for our trip and she always responded very quickly. My boyfriend and parents arrived at the unit before I did (I had to work later than planned), and Sharon answered my boyfriend's call about the lock. Everything went very smoothly. The unit itself was so very comfortable even with multiple guests. There's lots of space in the common areas and the kitchen was well equipped. The patio was gorgeous and tranquil. I spent a morning outside taking in the cool bay air. This is a great unit for a group travel!

What a lovely flat! The home is clean, airy, and we'll appointed with a comfortable bed, soft towels, and plush furniture. The kitchen has great appliances, including a gas stove, and sharp knives (a tricky find with rentals). The outdoor patio is delightful. We ate several meals in the sunshine there and I read on the hammock. The neighborhood is friendly, well kept, and eclectic. Close to the BART, trader joes, and botique shopping. Overall, a great location with an attentive host. Thank you, Sharon!
