It can be rare to find an authentic, lived-in home on Airbnb these days, I can often feel like I am staying in a cold hotel when staying in larger accommodations. Carrie and Justin's place feels like a true home. It's comfortable with little quirks. The living room is especially nice and we were able to enjoy their record player and stereo. The backyard is narrow but really large and it receives a lot of sun. The room layout is fun with a turning stair and the bathroom has a nice tub and great tile work. I will say that the one drawback is that the beds outside of the master bedroom were not the very comfortable. Overall, the location is great, the place is very clean with a very nice full kitchen and beautiful dining and living room. I would definitely stay again. Thank you!

We had 7-9 people staying there and there was plenty of room, sheets, towels, blankets. The dining room with a large table was our favorite spot. We cooked all of our meals and had everything we needed!! Carries place is very warm and inviting and the street is beautiful. Back yard is large and has a grill. It was the perfect spot for a "Big Chill" kind of weekend with good friends!!!

We had such a wonderful stay at Carrie's home! We were in town for a wedding with a group of friends and this house was the perfect place for us to relax, spend time together, and get ready for the wedding. The house is comfortable and we loved the decor and charm. The dining room table and living room were perfect for all of our friends to gather and hang out. The coffee, tea and welcome wine were really nice touches. The house also came equipped with an iron and steamer, which were helpful as we were getting ready for our wedding. The house is well organized and the labels really helped us find what we needed. We would definitely recommend this accommodation, and would love to come back someday!

Our stay at Carrie's place in Oakland was so wonderful. A group of us were there for our friend's wedding, and needed a central pad in which to hang out, get ready, and relax. We found that at the house: it's in a great location in Oakland, perfect for food in Temescal, the BART to SF, Berkeley, and the Bay area in general. The rooms were generous and the beds comfortable, and the five of us were able to stay quite comfortably. It was nice to be able to use the TV in the living room, and the dining table was huge and great for communal pizza. Everything was clearly labeled for our use, and instructions were very clear on how everything operated, including check-out. The welcome bottle of wine was great too! Definitely great value and a lot of space for a group of friends or family to use.

Overall, we had a lovely stay. The hosts provided us with a nice Christmas tree for the holidays and the house had everything we could need. We did have a little problem with painters working on the exterior of the house early in the morning for a few days of our visit, but we had a great stay in the end. Wonderful hosts who were very accommodating and easily reached with questions. A great place to stay that was close to stores and other attractions in a nice neighborhood of North Oakland.
