Descrizione

L'alloggio

The apartment is very spacious, just over 1100 square feet, with 2 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms, a nice sized, sunken living room, dining, and kitchen area. We're on the top (third floor ) of an eight unit building and there is an elevator for your convenience.

Looking for a home away from home? Our home is warm and friendly with lots of light and style, fully utilizing the 1100 square feet. The apartment is on the top floor of a one of a kind, 8 unit building, built in 1948. The ceilings are high, the rooms are spacious. It has a sunken living room (3 steps) that separates the common spaces from the sleeping areas. The apartment spans the entire building, with west, east and northern exposures and offers priceless views with almost total privacy.

Our apartment is furnished with an eclectic mix of things we picked up from our travels around the world, paintings and original photographs that add color and magic. We'd love to invite you to kick back and enjoy yourself.

Master bedroom, has a queen size bed and comes with a desk, and with en-suite bathroom. The guest bedroom has a double bed, wonderful garden view and a bathroom just outside the door.

Accesso ospiti

Guests are welcome to use the entire space. A coin-operated washer and dryer are in the basement of the building, and available for your use.

Interazione con gli ospiti

It's important to us that you feel comfortable, and have your own privacy. We will be available for any logistical questions as well as questions regarding fun things to do around the Bay Area.

We'll most likely be out of town since we are renting out our home. We hope to be able to meet with you before heading out, or will leave instructions on your arrival. Either way, we'll be sure to communicate effectively to make sure we're all on the same page.

Il quartiere

Lake Merritt is one of the most unique urban spaces in the United States. The lake features gorgeous grassy shores; several islands serving as bird refuges; a boating center where sailboats, canoes and rowboats can be rented and classes are held; and a fairy tale themed amusement park called Children's Fairyland. A popular walking and jogging path runs along its perimeter of 3.4 miles. The neighborhood attracts a lot of visitors and has a rich night life with many restaurants and bars open late at night.

Un giro nei dintorni

We are short walking distance from three shopping centers, including coffee shops, restaurants, a gym, a movie theater, post office, Walgreen's, Trader Joe's, several Yoga studios and almost anything else you might want.

In light traffic, we're 20 minutes from downtown San Francisco, and 20 minutes from Berkeley. We are 5 minutes from Highway 580. Bart (Bay Area Rapid Transit) is a 20 minute walk or one bus ride (away stop is 2 minutes away). There is a direct bus to San Francisco, an 8 minute walk away.
While there is public transportation, you will probably be more comfortable if you have your own car.

Sausalito, the Wine Country, Mount Tamalpais, Muir Beach, the Redwoods, Santa Cruz, and the Sonoma Coast are all easy day trips.

Altre cose da evidenziare

We have prepared a wonderful written guide for you that explains the ins and outs of our home. It also contains descriptions of lots of things to do in the neighborhood and in the area and how to get around.

As for the nitty gritty details, here's a list. (I love lists!)
• You'll be getting a set of keys, and there is also a call box to the apartment from the front door.
• Internet is available. We have basic cable T.V and you are welcome to watch Netflix, Amazon and other channels through Roku.a
• Please feel free to use the kitchen! Just leave it the way you found it. We love knowing our guests are breaking bread together!

Well, that's all we can think of telling you… Other than we are looking forward to possibly hosting you, and in case we don't answer your questions in the following sections, please feel free to contact us. We will try to respond as quickly as we can, since we know you want to nail down your accommodations quickly.

Sounds great, what's the catch?
So, in all honesty here's a few things to keep in mind… Just so that you're not surprised or feel there was the 'ol bait and switch…
• We live in an apartment building, in a city, which means you'll be able to hear normal city noises.
• We have a lot of breakable things in our house, so the apartment isn't too suitable for young kids, although we can always talk about it.
• We want to be good neighbors, which means we can't support loud guests /parties/activities that will disturb the peace in the building.
The carpets are clean but old and stained.
Sorry no parking on the premises.

We had a bad experience overall. First of all, Laura is really nice when you talk to her. Her neighbor Olga (who is very friendly and nice) gave us the keys, although we had to drive to SF to get the keys during the day, so we could have access to the apartment before nighttime. When we got there, we were shocked because the photos in the Airbnb page have nothing to do with the real thing. The apartment was still dirty and messy. We found the cleaning ladies doing their work, so we had to leave the apartment in order for it to be clean as soon as possible since we just wanted to rest after a long trip. Once we got back (after the cleaning), we still found an awful smell and basically everything was dirty. The whole apartment is a mess: it has a lot of spiderwebs, the carpet looks really unhygienic and dirty, the fridge had old and smelly food, it has medicine boxes spread all over the house. Every morning we were waken up by lots of pigeons making loud noises, apparently there is a pigeon plague in the building and they don't have the courtesy of mentioning it at the Airbnb page. Really disappointing and annoying. The place has two "complete" bathrooms, but the water pressure in one of the showers doesn't work: you only get a drop of water so it's impossible to take a shower there. We were five people, and we could only use one shower (that ruined half of our day and made us loose a lot of time). In the kitchen, we only used the coffee machine. It had the glass container partially broken, so the first morning we used it it broke completely. We bought a new coffee machine to replace the old one, and left a note saying sorry and explaining, although it wasn't really our fault. One week after we left, she sent a request for paying $110 for replacing a garbage bin. She assumed that we broke it, but it was broken from the moment we got there. We didn't write to Laura about the broken garbage bin because the whole apartment was a mess, and we would've had to write about a thousand things (shower, spiderwebs, poorly operating door, garbage bin, unhygienic and dirty carpet, pigeon plague, really dirty and smelly fridge, etc.). We are really shocked she's trying to make us pay for something she doesn't even know what happened (because she is in another country). It was the first time my parents used AirBnB and they swear they'll never use it again because of this bad experience. For me, this has been the only bad experience with AirBnB, but it was awful. Laura’s place has one good thing: location! Probably the only thing that kept us there during our stay at Oakland. It has a great view from the terrace. Still, I would definitely not recommend it at all.

Risposta di Laura:
We were so very sorry –and surprised - to hear about Mariel's family's ‘bad’ experience in our home-especially since she wrote us such a lovely note about what a nice time they had here and how she’d like to meet us sometime. It seems that her opinion changed when we asked her about the broken garbage can. As can be seen from prior reviews, no one else reported any of the problems she said she encountered. We always respect our guests and do our best to provide a clean, safe and relaxing environment.

The location for Laura's condo was the best. it was so lovely to look out on the lake any time of day but especially nice in AM with coffee or evening with wine. Also walking around the lake was a nice experience and a good walk with pretty views. Laura's photography of the lake was just wonderful. The condo was homey and we had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable.

We were made welcome from the very beginning. A friendly neighbor had the key and gave us the code to the garage. Cookies and an information sheet were left on a table. The place was clean and very comfortable with a beautiful view. Shopping for basics and good restaurants were easily walkable.

What a perfect place! The view and the location are spectacular, it's easy to get out and enjoy Oakland, and the place itself is well appointed for spending a lovely inside retreat. I'd come back with a stack of books and my binoculars so I can enjoy sunsets and birds and a quiet getaway; and then I'd go out to a yummy dinner somewhere nearby.

We came from abroad to visit the Bay Area and thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Laura and Marvin's apartment. The apartment was clean, nicely decorated and well equipped. The beds were comfortable. The area was big enough for four people to relax without getting in each others way. It was very close to lots of tons of entertainment and activities, and easily accessible to San Francisco and Berkeley. Highly recommend!

Both my husband and I enjoyed our stay in Laura's apartment. The lake view apartment is a beautiful light filled place, with everything we needed and more. We felt very comfortable in the clean, well appointed apartment with a panoramic view of the lake. The short walk to the shopping village that seemed to have everything was a real plus. The place is surrounded by nature, while being in the middle of an urban area. Our hosts were welcoming, very unobtrusive and made us feel right at home. Without hesitation, we highly recommend this accommodation.
