About Kathleen Kelly

Owned by widow with two grown children. We moved here when our oldest child was in kindergarten, and our kids went through the local grade and high schools. It's a great neighborhood! I live here most of the year, and only rent this out when I'm traveling. (PS. that picture of me is from a house designed by Gaudi in Barcelona, so don't think that's what you're getting when you check in here!)

Kathleen Kelly purchased this house in 1994

Why Kathleen Kelly chose Oakland

Who doesn't love the San Francisco Bay Area? A little known secret is that the weather is much better in Oakland than in SF, because it is sunnier and warmer, but not hot like in the more suburban areas.

What makes this house unique

Enjoy eating or relaxing in the newly renovated inside rooms or outside on the new patio. Take a walk in the neighborhood and see the views of the Oakland and Berkeley hills, or turn the other direction and see the Golden Gate and Bay Bridges.

This is a lovely home looking over the bay that will convince you that Oakland may have more to offer than SF.

We LOVED our stay in this home!! Will never stay anywhere else!!

  • 5 of 5

We (a group of 8 women) came to the Bay Area to celebrate my 50th birthday! This home was more than perfect for us! It is a beautiful home with an amazing yard and patio butnis also centrally located to everything we wanted to do!! Kathleen was a wonderful hostess, responded immediately to my inquiries, and even responded to a text asking for dinner suggestions. This

property will most definitely be at the top of my list the next time I am in the Bay Area and looking for a place to stay.

This house is accurate in it's photos.

  • 5 of 5

Kathleen was easy to reach whenever we had questions. It was such a blessing to be able to call this house our home for the week. It created the perfect backdrop for our blended family vacation. The kids and adults will have a hard time wanting to stay elsewhere the next time we're all together inn the Bay.

A beautifully furnished older home with a view and private courtyard garden.

  • 5 of 5

Seven of us gathered here to celebrate our son's graduation. The layout of the house worked seamlessly for us. We were stunned by the view (and good weather). We held a small outdoor party for other Cal grads and their families and the setting was perfect for that too. The owner is very solicitous and left detailed instructions. The best VRBO experience we have had.
