Amazing home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for my family to stay on vacation. The first day we got there we walked down the street to both the coffee shop and the grocery store to caffeinate and prepare for our stay. It is also with in waking distance from a few fun restaurants we tried during our stay.

The house it self was quite comfortable and had all of the accoutrements we needed to make breakfasts in the mornings and hang out together in the evenings around the dining room table or tv for relaxing. It was convenient to have the laundry right there and easy enough to get it done before quiet hours. It was also nice to have the chairs out front to sit in during our sunny and 75 degree vacation.

I emailed Judy a few times and she was always quick to respond and wonderful to work with.

Lovely house in a convenient location.

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely, old house in a convenient part of Oakland. We had plenty of space for 6 (4 adults 2 children), parking was never a problem compared with other neighborhoods, there is a grocery store and lots of great restaurants in walking distance. The owner was friendly and attentive and we wished we had contacted her with questions more promptly. if you are staying with an elderly person, access through the front of the house includes a sturdy stair case. The kitchen is big and well-equipped. All together a great experience!

Owner is non-responsive and house is disappointing

  • 1 of 5

Our biggest complaint would be about the owner. After we paid the security deposit, Judy never responded to any of our voicemails or emails regarding the final payment. We had to contact HomeAway with our questions. We even had to involve HomeAway to get our security deposit back. She did not provide any good customer service.

With regards to the house, it is not mentioned that the washer/dryer was not located in the house, but in the backyard under the stairs. The stove is ancient. The majority of the windows did not have screens so a bird flew in while we were there and left a present on one of the beds. In general, this house is old and outdated. I would not recommend this property to anyone.

This property was awful.

  • 1 of 5

Additionally, the remote did not work. Batteries were dead. Had to replace at our expense. Rear tv eventually worked but froze when trying to change the channel. This was the worst property that I have ever stayed in. EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED AND DISSATISFIED!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed in the house a year ago and have just re-scheduled another week in February 2014. The house is well maintained and very roomy.The wood paneling is just beautiful. The bedroom was cozy and the bathroom and kitchen very well kept. Everything was in order as described. The weather didn't cooperate so we couldn't take advantage of the outdoors. The location is can walk to the shopping center and have easy access to surrounding areas in Oakland. We love being so close to Piedmont Avenue also. We didn't get to meet Judy. We'd recommend the house.
