My place is great for three to four days visit. Joseph has a three-year-old son who visits every other weekend (certain days are blacked out for that reason). We are a couple. The place is 6 blocks from three major BART stations and walkable to downtown attractions and restaurant. One block from Lake Merrit. We both work full-time during the week and down for beer and conversation after work.

The space

It's an older townhouse. Many of the furniture are old school style. This room has no built in closet. There is a portable closet for just folding and hanging clothes. For this reason, I advise booking for only two three days.

Guest access

We are open to a two person visit however additional charges will apply. Guest can access kitchen and laundry room. The bathroom is shared. Week day check-ins must be after 5 PM. Please confirm before booking whether check-in before 5 PM can be accommodated.

Interaction with guests

We love guest interactions.

Other things to note

It's an older townhouse, like many of the old buildings in Oakland it doesn't have air conditioning but it has a heater.

Higly recommending Joseph's place for trips to Oakland or SAN Francisco. The apartement is in an amazing location - few minutes to BART stations and beautiful Lake Merritt! Joseph is very friendly and kind :) Thank you for the stay, I really enjoyed it!

I came for the triathlon. It was a great stay at Joseph's place. Enough privacy and nice bed. I had a good rest for my race.

Joseph's place was great. I got to meet both he and Tam and they're super nice people. The whole process was pretty straightforward. Perfect place to crash after enjoying SFO. Just a 10 min walk from BART. Great bed at a great value.

Both were great hosts, super welcoming and always down for good conversations and they helped me in every situation. I really had a great time with them. Thank you, guys! The house is located in 10 min. walking distance to the downtown station of Oakland, which was super convenient for me to visit San Francisco from that point. The local BART will bring you to SF in 15-20 min. and costs only around 3 $. Check-In times were no problem with Joseph due to the good conversation before arrival. He’ll always find a way to make it possible for you. It is a very big and clean room with a comfortable bed! If I go to the Bay Area again, this would be the place where I would like to stay again.
