Great place to stay in Oakland's Laurel District
This is a wonderful property very conveniently located to shopping and restaurants. It was easy to find from the airport. The downstairs duplex is roomy with a good size bedroom and living room. The bed was very comfortable and there were plenty of extra blankets and pillows. The living room had a lot of comfortable furniture and the kitchen/dining area was well stocked with dishes, pots and pans and utensils. There is a washer and dryer on the back porch, which was a different feature for someone coming from the cold midwest! We didn't get to explore the neighborhood but every day saw people out walking or jogging. It was very nice to have the gated area to park the car, although I wouldn't have had any qualms about parking on the street. Access to I-580 was very easy and from there it was easy to get to downtown Oakland or Berkeley. We didn't go into San Francisco, so didn't use the BART, but there is a station close by. Lisa was a wonderful host. She sent a lot of information ahead of our stay and then checked with us from time to time to see if we had any questions or problems. We also appreciated the travel information about the Oakland and greater bay area as well as the maps that were provided. My security deposit was returned very promptly. I would recommend this flat to anyone looking for a place to stay in the Oakland or Bay area. It is a great value for families or couples wanting more room (and character) than a standard hotel room.
