Reviews for this vacation home rental in Oakland, California
Oakland, CA USA
January 3, 2008
I rented this property for seven family members visiting for the holidays. It worked well for our purposes and the property manager was very easy to work with. My family was pleasantly surprised by how well stocked the kitchen was...plenty of pots/pans/utensils/dinnerware/etc. (The dishwasher is a bit noisy and I would recommend running it while you are out.) The drive to the property from Montclair village is a pretty trek, winding fairly deep into the hills above Montclair. Side note--there is a couple who lives downstairs with a dog. The residence has a separate entrance so we didn't cross paths with them and they were quiet during our stay. The dog was also quiet, but caught us by surprise as we were unaware of its presence. All in all, nothing fancy but definitely a good find.
