Charming Family bungalow.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this property. It was perfect for us, the rooms were clean and the house was well equipped. The charm of the house and neighborhood was not lost on us either. It is a great place to kick up your feet and relax. A bonus was that the rooms had their own AC units which made things so much more comfortable since we visited during a relative heat wave. We would definitely stay again.

Owner double booked -- did not offer to return money

  • 1 of 5

We booked four nights here a few weeks ago. When we arrived at the property and let ourselves into the rental, we noticed there were currently people staying in the house. We left immediately, then contacted the owner. He was very very prompt in getting back to us and apologized profusely which I appreciated. We went ahead and booked another place thinking that the refund for the rental would be forthcoming. When we asked him to refund us the money, he said that it was VRBOs fault that the place was double booked that I needed to call them to request a refund. When I contacted them, they said that only the owner could refund the money. When I contacted the owner again, he stopped responding to messages.

Family gathering

  • 5 of 5

We came to Oakland to spend time with our daughter and her family, this was a perfect home to share meals and spend family time! The description of the home was accurate and it was clean and well maintained.

The living room was comfortable and a nice place to sit and visit. The dining room and kitchen were Inviting and well equipped to share family meals. The bedrooms were large and comfortable and we loved the heated tile floor in the master bathroom!

We appreciated the off street parking.

The owner was very quick to respond to inquiries and very accommodating.

We look forward to returning and we recommend this home highly!

Wonderful weekend in this beautiful bungalow!

  • 5 of 5

Six of us shared this charming home for a weekend. It is as beautiful as the pictures look. Very comfortable with huge bedrooms and a beautiful kitchen with everything you need. Very convenient to get to the highway for day trips to Napa and San Francisco. We would definitely stay there again! Worked beautiful for our family and the bowl of fresh strawberries was a nice treat waiting for us!
