I can only recommend Saras place. I lived there for 3 weeks while on business. The place itself was wonderful – it was spacious, clean, had great wifi, kitchen and bathroom facilities, was close to cafés, farmers market, a great lake and grocery shopping, and it had lot of personality. But what made my stay welcoming and cozy was Sara. She was incredible at noticing if you needed space or was in a chatty mood. She always had great suggestions for places to visit or eat and I really liked our morning conversations. The location is within 2 min walking distance to public transportation, so in minutes you are on your way to San Francisco, Berkeley or Downtown Oakland. I will definitely book Saras place in the future.

I had a wonderful stay at Sara's apartment. I relocated from the midwest and needed a place to stay for a week before finding more permanent housing in the bay area. Sara was incredibly accommodating, friendly, and provided great recommendations for places to explore in the area. I appreciated her flexibility with check-in and check-out times! Her place is gorgeous and within walking distance of lake merritt, trader joes, and many cute shops and restaurants. I would absolutely recommend staying at Sara's place!

Sara's apartment was a great place to stay. I booked it for my mom who was visiting me in Oakland for the weekend. The apartment was super clean and organized, well decorated and supplied, and had amazing views all around. It's within easy walking distance of Lake Merritt and lots of restaurants and things to do around the lake. Sara was very accommodating, responsive, and a nice person to meet and talk to. I would definitely book Sara's place again in the future!

I spent a wonderful time at Sara's. The apartment is very nice and clean. The room is spacious and has a good wifi connection. The bed is also very confortable and I slept very well. Sara is very nice and was always worried that I got everything I needed. I also really enjoyed talking to her. I spent one whole month at Sara's and I have to say that at the end I felt at home. Last but no least I love the location, the neighborhood is lovely. The grocery store is just a 5min walk away and the beautiful Lake Merritt is just down the street. Only positive comments for sure. I would definitely recommend staying at Sara's.

I was moving from the east coast to California. I needed a temporary place for few days upon my arrival until I find a permanent place. I rented the place for few days an it was the best experience ever. Wonderful, modern and clean place. The view from the apartment window to Oakland green hill is one of a kind. Very safe neighborhood. 5 min walk to lake Merritt. Close to everything. Whole foods, trader joes, restaurants, coffee shops, laundromat, banks and the freeway. Street parking is very easy and always available. Sara is a wonderful host. Very hospitable and helped me with advice whenever she is around. My road trip from the east coast took less than I expected and I arrived early couple of days. Sara accommodate my early arrival and hosted me since my early arrival. Overall I had an amazing and very positive experience. I highly recommend this place if you be staying in Oakland.

I needed to book a place in a hurry for the same day. Sara responded to my request very quickly and showed amazing flexibility to accommodate my uncertain arrival time. Her home is immaculately clean and is well-equipped with everything one needs. I never had a hard time finding parking on the street (not something to be taken for granted in Oakland!). It's also a very short walk/run to Lake Merritt--a great place for a run and also a hub for lots of shops and restaurants. Sara is a gracious host and a lovely person. I really enjoyed our chats too. I would definitely stay at her home again.

Sara was a wonderful host. The apartment is beautiful and the location worked very well for exploring Oakland and getting to/from San Francisco. The neighborhood is residential but it's a quick walk away from the lake, cafes, restaurants, and a Trader Joes! Will definitely stay again when I'm back in Oakland.

Hello! I am an enthusiastic resident of a lovely, quiet neighborhood in Oakland. I love introducing and orienting folks to all that Oakland, and the Bay Area, has to offer. I am friendly, interested, clean and quiet. As a host, I can be as helpful/informative or hands off as you prefer. I look forward to hosting you!
