The space

My apartment is beautiful. It's incredible sunny, warm and envelopes you like an embrace the moment you step in the door. It's a one bedroom within 2 blocks of Lake Merritt. Tennis courts are also very close. My neighborhood is friendly and there are various restaurants, a grocery store, cafe all within a few blocks. There are also two delicious taco trucks 2 blocks from the apartment, one of which stays open to 2am everyday incase you have a late night taco or burrito craving.

Yvonne was a great host. The apartment is nice and located very near to Lake Merritt. If you're looking for a place to stay while visiting Oakland, then this is a good option and reasonably priced.

Yvonne was responsive and accommodating. The apartment is beautiful and close to Lake Merritt. The only problem I faced was with the couch: it was too small (I am 5'11 it was 5'6 at best) and had multiple stains on it (unlike the photo on the ad).

Yvonne was a great host. She was very attentive and I would stay with her when I'm on Oakland again.

Hey there! Fly is a great host, she's such an interesting character. Seeing her and her beautiful decorated apartment made my first airbnb experience perfect! She really is an artist about to publish a book. Also, her apt is full of paintings she did herself. Very inspiring :) S…

Response from Yvonne Fly Onakeme:
Janin, 1.) a towel is available upon request. You didn't ask for one or I would have gladly given you one to use. 2.) It clearly states on the listing for my space that shoes are to be left in the hallway entrance of the apartment. I also shared that info with you upon your arrival so when I saw your shoes in the bedroom, I asked you to move them from the bedroom. 3.) The carpet was not dirty but if you'd told me you felt it was, I would have gladly vacuumed it for you. In the future, I suggest communicating your issues with your host during your stay so they have an opportunity to make it right. Safe travels.

The location is perfect if you need easy access to BART. The street noise is a bit loud so I'd only recommend it if you are a deep sleeper.

Fly's home is lovely, and I was given the tour shortly after arrival. The room was comfortable and clean, as well as the bathroom. The apartment is well cared for, and it is clear that Fly is mindful about the sort of energy in the space: it is calm and wonderful. Those looking f…
