I had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful apartment for 2 weeks. The owners, Linda and Don are the nicest people you will ever meet. They will welcome you and make you feel like you are right at home. They are very warm and helpful. The apartment itself is beautifully decorated, super clean and it has everything you can imagine to make your stay very comfortable. I really enjoyed seeing deer in the backyard everyday. Linda even let me feed them everyday! The property is centrally located, close to all the freeways, 15 min. from the Oakland airport, 10 min. from BART stations so you can visit San Francisco without the stress of having to drive in the city, laundromats, super markets, shopping, etc. Of course, there is Lake Chabot 2 min drive from the place with great walking, boating. biking, fishing and beautiful views. If you like hiking you can drive 20 min to Redwood Regional Park and you will be in hiker's heaven. If you are looking for a quiet place to stay and feel right at home, this is the place to be. I will recommend it to all my friends and family, and of course, the next time I go up to that area, I will make sure I stay there.
