Epic, Gorgeous, Huge Historic, Victorian Mansion - Easily Sleeps 30+

The mansion has been used for dozens of photo and video shoots by Williams Sonoma, Cost Plus, Loews, Gumps, Pottery Barn and others. As all this implies, the property is just beautiful, with grand rooms, and towering ceilings. We have done a huge amount of redecorating in the past few months, and the Mansion is more spectacular than ever. We can now provide at least 11 bedrooms (5 Entry floor, 5 2nd floor, and 1 top floor) and 4 bathrooms (2 on Entry floor, 2 on 2nd floor). There are more in the house, but they may be in the process of decorating. If you need more, please ask if they are available before you book. Here's an overview of the mansion (again, some of the following may not be available. Please inquire if you need more than what is described above). Entry Floor, all definitely available now (entered one flight of stairs from the - Big Kitchen, two dining rooms, two foyers, and living room. Five bedrooms. One bedroom is VERY large, with a King bed, and lots of seating. The other four have queen beds. This floor has two full bathrooms, and they are definitely available. The Kitchen has many pots and pans, blender, plates and bowls, glasses, cutting boards, cutlery, and microwave. Second Floor (at least 5 bedrooms available NOW) - the main bedroom floor: Nine bedrooms, all with Queen beds. It also has four bathrooms, all with showers. Top Floor - Five bedrooms, all with Queen beds. And two bathrooms, both with showers. This floor also tons of comfortable lounging space, with at least five couches, PLUS three twin beds. Outdoors: There are vast, beautiful outdoor spaces, with several furnished areas, in which to lounge and just enjoy the great many sunny days in Oakland (far sunnier than SF). It is VERY IMPORTANT not to be outside socializing (or otherwise making noise outside) after 9 pm. This is a residential neighborhood and this is required by law. Interaction with guests I love helping people have a great time in our beloved Oakland and nearby San Francisco. Please ask me anything you like. At the same time, I know many guests will prefer just having privacy. Other things to note Please see additional people charges. Those charges also apply to guests who don't sleep at the mansion. They will be reduced if people will be there for only a few hours.

Amazing House, Great for big groups & events
We had the most amazing time at the mansion. I hosted a 1920's murder mystery dinner party for my friend's birthday there and it was absolutely perfect. The house fit everyone super comfortably and the decor/ ambiance was perfect for getting into the theme. I saw some reviews say the kitchen was small, but i disagree! We had ample space to set up dinner, make cocktails, and roam around to play the game. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a place to host a larger group or dinner party. Everyone had a spectacular time!! Definitely one of the coolest parties I've ever thrown. The host EJ was super accommodating and helpful. He let us check out later, which was much needed & appreciated when only staying one night.

Amazing historic house in the center of a vibrant urban city.
Our extended family decided to take this historic place for our annual get together after Christmas, a time all 22 of us can get together. This year we decided to try an urban experience. (We are ranchers in the Central Valley of California.) This was our 20th year going somewhere, usually near the beach. The rooms in the mansion are amazing, with architectural details everywhere, tall windows that let in the sun on a winter afternoon, with lots of space to spread out . We watched the San Francisco Forty Niner game one night, some played games, our son brought his guitar. The third floor enchanted out granddaughter from Tennessee, with areas to play games or sit around and visit. Beautiful dark beams cover the ceiling, and windows look out to the bay. The bedrooms are large, the beds comfortable. There were a few negatives. The kitchen is small for a crowd, and has poor lighting in the evening, for slicing up onions or preparing something on the stove. However, we had pizza one night from Philomena, and it was outstanding. The only bathroom on the ground floor was in the middle of a remodel but we managed. The neighborhood was noisy for two nights around New Years Eve. Lots of firecrackers and the sound of guns going off. It would help if the owner could put up a hand rail along the steps leading to the entry. I give it 4 stars because of the few negatives. Over all the house is beautiful and perfect for a reunion or meeting.

5/5 Excellent

Wedding Weekend
The property was perfect for my wedding weekend. The house was large enough to accommodate most of the wedding party - many of which came from out of town. The weekend was very special since everyone was under one roof. Additionally, we took our "first look" pictures inside the house since it's very unique with beautiful features. I highly recommend the house for large gatherings due to its size, beauty and proximity to Lake Merritt.

5/5 Excellent

Great place for a corporate retreat
We took our group of 13 co workers to EJ's mansion in Oakland. The accommodations were perfect for us. Everyone had their own place to sleep and we didn't even use all of the bedrooms! The mansion is exactly as described and there is tons of room for everyone. There are several living rooms and dining rooms, but we spent most of our time in the main living room where everyone was able to have their own seat where we were able to socialize as a group. It was very hot during our stay, but the mansion stayed surprisingly cool. There were air conditioners on the top floor that we did use, but really did not need them on any of the other floors. EJ was great to work with, quickly responding to our many enquiries before we arrived. He even met us on arrival to familiarize ourselves with the place and make sure that we had everything that we needed. EJ's place is perfect for a corporate retreat and if we ever get a chance to return to San Francisco, EJ will be our first contact

4/5 Good

EJ is a very attentive and involved manager. The house is hugh and accommodated our group of 10.
There are some negatives: mold in showers, windows that won’t open and/or close, neighborhood’s sketchy, no outdoor gathering place for a large group to enjoy the beautiful weather, attic/game room took 2 days to cool. BUT if you can overlook the old home shortcomings, this place is cool and easily allows for groups to have a great time together while also having space for privacy.
