Rachna is an amazing host and was very welcoming in my move to Oakland. Best host I could've stayed with! Her place is nice and she keeps it very clean. I had a difficult time getting out of bed some mornings cause it's so comfortable! She was also very open to me using her tv, kitchen, washer and dryer. Highly recommend

Rachna is a great host, available to advise and help her guests. The house is well located (15 min walk to the Bart and near the nice Piedmont Avenue). The place is clean and comfy. We really enjoyed our stay here and for sure recommend it !

Rachna is a truly wonderful host. She made every part of my trip better than it would have been otherwise. The apartment is comfortable and has everything you need for a great trip. The location is convenient and an easy way to lots of restaurants and shops. I would absolutely stay here again!

Rachna is an incredible AirBnB host. She's incredibly welcoming, generous and knowledgeable. She opened her home to me, and wanted me to feel like it was my home as well. Rachna showed me some of the gems of the neighborhood and the city. I stayed for three months, and I came as a healthcare traveler for KP. While trying to save money on a rental car and finding a safe place for walking to work, she was patient in answering all my questions before and after I booked my stay. Rachna was one of the best parts of my assignment in Oakland, and I can't say enough good about her.

My 2 week stay at Rachna's was complaint-free! She worked around my schedule to arrange a check-in experience that worked for me. She was extremely generous and considerate throughout the stay. Very comfortable bed and great private bathroom. Lots of closet space. A very clean home with a wonderful kitchen. I booked with Rachna having just moved to Oakland and needing a temporary living situation, but this would be a great location for a weekend stay or multiple weeks/months. Rachna is a great host with a great place in a great location.

Rachna's place is wonderful. I lived here with her for two months. The location is perfect. Just up the street from Piedmont Ave. Very safe area. Parking is easy. Close to really great cafés, smoothie shops, bakeries, restaurants, local shops, local grocery shops, literally anything you need.... It's on Piedmont Ave, one block up from Rachna's place. Her 3 bedroom apartment is very welcoming and warm. The room and bathroom have everything you need. And if you forget something from home, don't worry, she already thought of that and has one for you to keep. The bed is a queen size and is so comfortable. I instantly felt right at home. She is super helpful and such an amazing woman. She and I became friends very quickly. We went to SF together, got dinner, coffee, stayed up late talking when I was feeling home sick and sad. She is so easy to feel comfortable with. If it wasn't for her, I would have hated Oakland when I first moved here. But she became my friend and someone I could trust. She showed me around and gave me great recommendations when she couldn't come. She is someone I will be friends with for the rest of my life. She's even invited to my wedding, if it ever happens lol. I recommend Rachna's to everyone. It's the perfect place to feel at home, even when you're not at home.
