This is a beautiful house in the heart of Oakland. The rooms are unique and different. It's a great place to host a large group of people. EJ was very responsive and really worked to make it work for us.

Jaci K. booked a team offsite for 10 people
EJ was very responsive and helped with any request I had. We only utilized the outdoor space, but it worked really well for our small team meeting.
Michelle M. booked a video shoot for 10 people
This space is amazing! The pictures really don't do it justice. We rented it for a small video shoot and had so much to work with. Very spacious and beautiful detailing. It is fantastic as is, but as another reviewer had mentioned, it would be a whole other thing if it ever were fully restored. Would definitely recommend this space and would rent again.
Wendy K. booked a meeting for 5 people
The home is amazing and I wish we had more time to utilize more of it. We were only there for a few hours for a meeting. I would love to see it restored to it's glory days. It would be wonderful for a family reunion where everyone could stay in one place or something like this. We had fun cooking out team lunch together in the kitchen. EJ was very responsive and accommodating.
