Mercedes is a wonderful host and makes her guests very comfortable in this roomy house. It also has a great outdoor area. The house is wonderfully furnished, has all the amenities you need and is a great place to hang out. Bravo." "My wife and I were living in Boston, debating whether to buy there or move to San Francisco. As soon as we saw Casa de las Palmas, our decision was made - we moved cross-country a month later, and haven't looked back. Sitting next to Sausal Creek, the home is a peaceful oasis in the Fruitvale area of Oakland, a colorful Latino neighborhood with at least 30 taco trucks within a square mile. The owners is a friendly and responsive landlord, and takes pride in keeping Casa de las Palmas beautiful and taken care of." "I have loved living at Casa de las Palmas. Every room has it's unique delights. It is a comfortable space with wonderful "flow." The late afternoon sunlight is glorious and everything seems to glow. Hummingbirds often grace the garden, which is a wonderful place to entertain or relax."
