The space

This is a garden level funky artist’s studio apartment in a historic house with owners living upstairs. You’ll rest on a queen size bed and have access to a small private bathroom with shower (no tub) and separate room for toilet. An air mattress is available for a third person. There is also a sitting and dining area and a limited kitchen with refrigerator, toaster oven, microwave, and coffeemaker. We’ll provide a light breakfast with coffee and tea included. Outside your private entrance is a deck and garden area with comfortable seating for relaxing or dining outdoors or browsing the web on our free Wi-Fi.

We are close to Lake Merritt and its running and walking paths and bird sanctuary. We are also nearby the hip and trendy local Oakland Art Scene with many restaurants and coffee shops. Architectural masterpiece, Cathedral of the Light, is a 5 block walk from our home and worth visiting. Just 2 blocks away is a Whole Foods Superstore with build-your-own burrito and brick-oven pizzas. There's also an ice cream bar, coffee bar and a diverse selection of prepared entrees, soups and snacks for carry-out.

We are blocks away from Highway 580, easily connecting you with all major highways for exploring the Bay Area and Northern California. Parking can sometimes be limiting on our street but not impossible. We are close to buses and six blocks from 19th Street BART, taking you into San Francisco or the surrounding areas. We offer complementary pickup and drop-off to BART upon arrival and departure, between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. with 24-hour notice.

This is a smoke-free rental, indoors and out. Custom massage available on site by request.

We have a small dog, a friendly senior cockapoo named Boswell, whose breed's coat is allergy free. He will not be in your studio but upstairs and around the property at times.

I had a wonderful stay! Nancy was so accommodating. She picked me up at the BART station and even gave me a ride when I caught her on my way out. The place is so cozy, with cute decorations and all the amenities you'd need. She left coffee and homemade granola and yoghurt in the …

We loved the space! It is quirky and wonderful and is in the walkout basement of a quaint house that is 100+ years old. The patio area off the back is really nice and afforded us the chance to sit outside for meals; you can also just lay in bed with the door open to take in the v…

Nancy was a great host, and the space was great (and much larger than expected). Conveniently located by Lake Merritt and check in and out process were seamless. I'd definitely stay here again.
