About steven maes
Hi there! I'm Steven, I was born right here in Oakland and grew in this neighborhood of Rockridge (a district of Oakland). I have been working as a Aviation Maintenance Technician for the last 30 years. As a younger person I found myself buying Home's and learned to do remodeling. With the help of my Partner Lucia who is an Interior Designer we have over the years Redesigned and remodeled many Home's. This Vacation Home is one of them! This Area is Home for Me and Just Absolutely Love It! I do Hope you will Too!

Perfect home in Oakland Hills
I could not have been more pleased with our stay. We regularly rent homes versus hotels during our travels, and typically the experience is a bit less nice than the photography - This was a true exception to that rule. From the moment we walked up the path to the front door, it was even more beautiful than the pictures could capture. The home was spacious and impeccably clean. The beds were all comfortable - including the gorgeously built murphy bed. The bathrooms were well appointed and had great water pressure and plenty of hot water.
The kitchen was a real treat, with everything you could need to prepare a meal - big or small.
The views of the Bay were spectacular and we enjoyed all the outdoor spaces, from the balconies to the patios. The neighborhood was very quiet while still being close to some of the best restaurants in the East Bay (on College Ave).
Steven was very quick in his communications and allowed us to check in early. He made sure we had all the information we needed to find the house and check in easily.
Overall, we will certainly stay at this property in the future if we return to the area.
Comfortable home for family of four
We stayed for five days. Comfortable home for us. Easy to get simple groceries at Village Market and eat on College Ave close by. Kitchen very well stocked with quality items. Neighborhood is beautiful and view is too. Very quiet. We would definitely stay again.
What a beautiful property my family and I had so much fun thank you Stephen for your hospitality would definitely rent this house again 😍�
Great Views of the Bay
House is beautiful and spacious with great layout and absolutely amazing views. There were five of us and it never felt cramped. Used ride share services to get around and never had to wait long for a pick up at the house. It was great using the stairs on the property to get to hiking trails around the lake. Great place to go for a run too. The owner Steven was awesome and it was a pleasure to get to meet him. Did I mention the kitchen! It is awesome and we spent much of our time there just hanging out. Can't say enough about this listing, and the owner, will definitely rent it again when staying in Oakland/San Fran.
Everything was perfect! The views are amazing and the house was spacious and clean. I highly recommend!!!
The view is stunning. The house is lovely and a great location. Our group loved it.
I would recommend this property to anyone with a family or group of friends. The view is stunning and there are delicious restaurants and wonderful hiking near by.
