Great check-in experience100% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.
Sparkling clean16 recent guests have said that this home was sparkling clean.
Great location90% of recent guests gave this home’s location a 5-star rating.

You can have a nice quiet space and feel away from it all even though we are nestled in the foothills of urban Oakland.
Our spot is an easy drive to many Bay Area locations and also works well as a place to come back to after a busy day site-seeing or working, etc.

We had an awesome stay at Margaret's! Her and her husband were super friendly, kind, and generous. The room was perfect for my partner and I plus a friend of ours on the third bed. Great space for the three of us, spacious, clean and homely. Oakland was a easy train ride to San F…

Easy going. My husband and I enjoy traveling but we also really enjoy hosting. As hosts we fully respect our guests privacy and can be as invisible as necessary. We enjoy the outdoors, gardening, yoga, music, etc. We are into food. We do lots of fermenting, from pickle making…
