Sparkling clean4 recent guests have said that this home was sparkling clean.

You've heard Oakland is better than SF - how the artists, foodies, and startups are moving to the sunny side of the Bay - and now you want to see it for yourself. This is your launching pad. Situated smack-dab in the middle of the must-see neighborhoods of Piedmont, Temescal and Uptown, neighbored by the softball, basketball and frisbee friendly Mosswood Park and within 10 minutes walking distance from the BART train, you simply couldn't find a better Oakland location.

Philip's place was clean and bright! Everything was as he communicated ahead of time, and we felt very prepared with his guidebook. Very close to the BART station, and around many of the Ford Go Bike stations (take advantage of this to bike around both Oakland and SF - we were so…
