Great check-in experience100% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.
Sparkling clean17 recent guests have said that this home was sparkling clean.
Hot tubThis is one of few homes in this area that has this feature.

You can have a nice quiet space and feel away from it all even though we are nestled in the foothills of urban Oakland.
Our spot is an easy drive to many Bay Area locations and also works well as a place to come back to after a busy day site-seeing or working, etc.
