Sparkling clean7 recent guests have said that this home was sparkling clean.

Perfect location for travellers, business travel, and students, our independent studio is across the street from Lake Merritt, and its running path. A 12 minute walk to BART, a 3 min walk to grocery stores, restaurants, and laundry, and 5 bus lines run within one block. A great landing pad for any Bay Area adventures. Families and students welcome!

Outstanding value for a cozy space in a very walkable location across the street from Lake Merrit. PS... the taco truck around the corner a block away stays open until 2:30am. It's a superstar!!!

Fantastic local, Jo was easy to communicate with and check in & check out were simple plus she offered advice on where to eat and shop locally. The space was super comfortable also, a little dated, but had everything I needed.

Jo and her family are wonderful hosts. Her place was super sparkling clean! The accommodations were very comfortable. We had a kitchen. Located in an urban area, we were walking distance from many activities and delicious local restaurants. Hope to book a return visit!

The studio apartment is clean, comfortable and exactly as described. Jo was a very wonderful host. She is helpful with directions & suggestions around the city. Our checkin was delayed due to bad weather conditions and she waited patiently for us. We highly recommend her!
