The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose Oakland

We love Oakland, we love our home and we are excited to share this lovely city with others!

What makes this house unique

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have stayed here twice while visiting our son, daughter-in-law and new baby boy who live in a small apartment four blocks from here. The space, privacy and complete (and well-functioning) equipment make this an ideal do-it-yourself bed and breakfast place. We appreciate the ease of making arrangements and the artwork too!

Quick WS trip

  • of 5
We needed a place to stay for a quick night to watch the San Francisco Giants in the World Series. This place was perfect. We were at the ball park in about an hour from leaving the house thanks to Maya's tip to take the bus. It was less crowded than BART and we probably saved some time not having to walk about a mile to the station. I used to live near this area but the neighborhood has added many new restaurants and stores and the Lake is beautiful as always. The place is cozy and charming and a great value to be so close to everything. Parking was not a problem and you really don't need to use your car much as public transportation is convenient to all the sites.

Owner's Response: So glad that the rental worked for you! For future renters, the NL bus stop is a few blocks from the house and rides directly to downtown SF. It's an easy alternative to BART.

This vacation rental was just perfect for what we needed! We spent a week in Oakland visiting our daughter. This wonderful little gem had everything we needed, plus much more, a scenic little garden area in the back and a wonderful little kitchen for coffee and such! We spent alot of time in SF and actually wish we could have spent a little more time at the rental. The owners are very nice, friendly and accomodating! I would recommend this property to anyone staying in the Oakland/SF area - very convenient to everything!

Great choice and great location

  • 5 of 5
The unit is well maintained and spacious. The host is really great and willing to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. We unfortunately had to change our plans because of our sick 2 year old, and the owner was super accommodating. The location is great. There are some good restaurants, a coffee place, a giant park, and the BART within walking distance. The ride to SF is only 15 minutes on the BART. We are really happy that we chose to stay here instead of a hotel. I would definitely stay here again and I have already recommended a friend to stay there.

Our first vrbo

  • 4 of 5
Our son lives in Oakland, 2 blocks from this vrbo. Not having a car was a plus. The neighborhood was great. Walking distance from restaurants, parks, grocery stores. The vrbo is old, but comfortable. Couch and chairs for sitting need to be updated. Nice outdoor space with deck and table/chairs for morning coffee or evening glass of wine. We would definitely be back to visit our son.

Good deal for the price

  • 4 of 5
Located in the heart of Oakland, this property has a lot of pluses, especially since it is so reasonably priced. The apartment is entirely adequate: renters will not want for any of the essentials, and will find Maya very receptive to requests. The only noteworthy difficulty is parking. As at least one other renter has remarked, there isn't a whole lot of it on the street: the neighborhood is densely populated so that there are far more cars than spaces. We therefore usually had no alternative but to park in the driveway, and while Maya was understanding, it still made for difficulties insofar as the driveway was narrow and required frequent rotation of vehicles. But this is a relatively minor problem when contrasted with the central location and pleasant neighborhood. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review! We agree, the parking here is not great, but we do our best to accommodate by sharing the driveway. It does take some logistics, since it appears the driveway was made for a horse and buggy, but we are happy to make it work!

Wonderful Stay in Adams Point

  • 5 of 5
My husband & I booked the rental for 2 weeks, for my parents who came all the way from Indonesia to get together with us and to get some Rest&Relax.
The booking process was a breeze, the rental was clean and pleasant, the bed & bedding was comfortable (so I was told) and the location could not have been better! It's on a safe neighborhood, only 3 blocks away from where we (husband & I) live, close to the lake - so my parents could have a nice walk in the mornings, and less than a mile away from grocery stores - so my parents were able to get any forgotten items & went grocery shopping easily.
The fact that the kitchen is equipped with mini refrigerator, coffee maker, toaster, microwave, pots & pans, chopping board, knife, can opener, plates, bowls, etc kitchen utensils, and a full size gas stove & oven made it so much easier for my parents to cook their own meals, according to their diet & liking.
The rental owner are a nice couple who were always attend whenever needed, and they were very helpful by letting my parents use their washer & dryer in the basement. Their kids are joyful and helped ease my parents' homesickness of their grand kids back in Indonesia :)
Needless to say, my parents enjoy their 2 weeks stay at the rental and my husband & I couldn't be happier! Thank you very much!
