Nancy and Jason were very kind and accommodating. Stayed in Charlie's Queen and had everything I needed, loved the warm and comfortable feel of the room, views were beautiful at sunset, very nice touches all around. Only wished I'd been able to spend more time lounging in the cute little sun room upstairs or in the garden. Wasn't able to... More

A wonderful place to bide away the time when visiting the Bay Area including San Francisco, itself, be it to visit friends, family, or as tourists. Call a cab to the door, or walk to the MacArthur Bart station (it is 3/4 mile; or use one of the many shuttles going and coming 2 to 3 blocks from 640 Fairmount).... More

Nancy and Jason welcome you to their home with a smile and a well turned sense of humour. Breakfast is gourmet great, varied and plenteous. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and you get a glimpse of how to live graciously and organically in Oakland.

We stayed here while visiting our son and daughter-in-law. Our room, Charlie's Queen, was spacious, clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the healthy and delicious breakfasts every morning, along with interesting conversation. The location is wonderful, just one block from Piedmont, where there are numerous shops and restaurants. It is also convenient to the shuttle for the Bart station. My husband... More

I concur with the great reviews that helped me decide to stay at this location. I really can't find anything wrong with our stay except for the parking--but that's not the owners' fault. If you do use their driveway to unload, park sideways across the space so the neighbors don't get wrinkled. Step out onto the sitting room at night... More

I stayed here for a weekend while attending a workshop nearby and found it to be a lovely, homey, comfortable B&B. The room was large and sunny, the breakfasts were delicious, the garden was enjoyable and the owners were very pleasant.

Stayed here while visiting our daughter and family. It was our second visit as the accommodations are warm and friendly with truly delicious breakfasts. It is small and very personal. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a unique place to stay in the Oakland area.

Booked here because it was 1 block from our daughter and their brand new son (our first grandchild!!), but such a pleasant surprise. Friendly, warm and well equipped, we have a perfect accommodation with what are now friends. Certainly highly recommended, were it not for the charms of that new baby, we would have explored the garden and spent more... More

My husband and I stayed here while visiting our daughter and new baby granddaughter. The house was lovely, the hosts were welcoming, the breakfasts were delicious and the conversation was stimulating! The neighborhood was quaint and quiet, the rooms were clean and their garden area was lovely and quite the conversation piece. We definitely recommend their B&B. Nancy and Jason... More
