This colorful and bright garden studio apartment is a great home base for exploring the SF Bay Area. Ashby BART is a block away. Safe friendly neighborhood.

The space

Just about everything in here is colorful from the hand painted floor & furniture to the tiled bathroom. Full of sunlight especially in winter and there is full spectrum LED lighting in addition. French doors open out into the back yard which is... a work in progress but pleasant to hang out in none the less. Plenty of patio furniture, benches etc and a funky little gas grill you can use. This is a family home so it's not fancy but it's homey and comfortable. Our house is seismically retrofitted.

Guest access

You'll have the large garden studio apartment (12' x 30') all to yourselves with a private entrance. There is a full well equipped kitchen and a full size bathroom and closet space. The bed has a curtain you can draw around it for privacy. There is a TV with Netflix streaming and broadcast TV. In cold weather there is a space heater that warms the place up quickly, it's very well insulated and stays snug.

Shared features are: washer, clothesline & dryer are upstairs in the back hallway of the main house - you're welcome to use them. Back yard, also welcome to use!

Interaction with guests

We live upstairs so any questions or problems we can help with right away. If we're not home you can call or text. We've lived here forever and we're happy to point you to the best features of the SF Bay Area, it's a marvelous place.

Other things to note

We live upstairs with our dog (your friendly dog is welcome but no cats please) and sometimes we have boarders or guests. We make an effort walk softly but you will hear us and the water running despite our sound insulation efforts... Our adult daughter lives in the other half of the downstairs. We welcome people from all cultures, countries and religions, and we are LGBTQ friendly.
