We really enjoyed at Maurice's house! The house was just perfect for our family; large, comfortable and clean. And most of all, Maurice is a gracious host and he made us feel welcome :)

Maurice's place was wonderful and we had a very comfortable stay. Maurice was accommodating, meeting us in the evening when our flight got in and showing us around the apartment and was always accessible by text. The neighborhood is very quiet and conveniently located close to everything on Piedmont St. We had more than ample room, the beds were comfortable. We would HIGHLY recommend this place to anyone!

Maurice is a gracious host and his home is ideally located. He was very responsive and helpful during our stay and did everything possible to make us feel welcome. Thanks so much Maurice. We look forward to returning someday soon!

Maurice was a very gracious host and very welcoming. It was the perfect space for my family with two small kids. When the kiddos got restless inside it was nice to be able to enjoy the balcony in the back as well as the front yard. The flat was in a great location and within easy walking distance of a grocery store, drugstore, and several coffee shops and restaurants.

Maurice's place was very nicely laid out and comfortable. The kitchen was a bit sparsely equipped and would have benefitted from some of the basic things like spices and sharp knives for preparing food, but otherwise we (myself, my partner and her family) enjoyed our time.

The description was accurate. A short block from Piedmont Ave, and Maurice made us feel welcome.

We had a very pleasant stay at Maurice's house. Everything was perfect, beginning with Maurice's warm hospitality. The house is absolutely great, large and comfortable, and proved just perfect for a small family like ours ( 2 adults and 3 children). It is tastefully decorated and located in a trendy area of Oakland (full of good restaurants and interesting shops ) . Within 15 minutes you can get to the heart of San Francisco by BART . We recommand Maurice 's house without hesitation !!!
