This is a generously sized in-law apartment with everything necessary for a long or short stay in a charming neighborhood close to lots of fun things and shopping.
In the lovely, convenient Grand Lake neighborhood, nestled in the trees, you will find a quiet one bedroom in-law apartment within walking distance of the Grand Lake movie palace, hip coffee houses, exciting eateries, shops and the beautiful Lake Merritt.
Our walk score is 97 but you can hop the 26 bus a block away, casual carpool into SF (more reliable than BART and closer), or bus/BART there. The freeway entrance is 3 minutes away.
There is a bedroom with a queen bed plus a daybed for lounging or sleeping in the living room, a full funky kitchen with complimentary coffee and tea, dishes, pans, towels for the shower, etc.
We have wireless and a TV with HBO plus a washing machine. Parking is available on the street. We're sorry, we don't allow pets due to new carpeting and its occasional use by allergic family members. This is a non-smoking household, no smoking of any kind in is allowed in or around the apartment.
Rates are lowered for stays of a week or more. The apartment can be rented for a month or longer by special arrangement. This is your home away from home.

Interaction with Guests
As much or as little as preferred-always happy to answer questions. Please be aware that as a short term rental, we will have to show the apartment on occasion as necessary.
It's the most walkable neighborhood in Oakland that is also quiet and secluded at night.
This is a quiet neighborhood so please respect that, especially after 11 PM or before 8 AM. A cat lives upstairs but rarely visits. Sorry, but there is no smoking in the apartment or on the adjacent deck.

Pamela met us in front of the house and made us feel very welcome. She gave us a quick tour of the apartment and made sure we knew where everything was. We enjoyed the small patio in the morning while we drank our coffee. The bed was comfortable and the recently remodeled bathroom was attractive. The neighborhood was very nice. Everything was as advertised.
Great overall experience with Pamela. Apartment was perfect size for two (may feel a bit cramped with 3) and there were plenty of dry goods left over from previous visitors. Neighborhood is very quiet and safe, and about a 15 minute walk to Starbucks, Trader Joe's, and lots of great shops/restaurants. This was our first extended stay in the Bay Area and Pamela's space is a great home base - quieter than SF but not dull or boring and everything is accessible by bus, BART, or car. The hilly streets are great for running/biking if you're into that! Also, free WiFi with Netflix access!!
Had a great stay at Pamela's place! She was able to check us in a little early and give us a quick tour of the place. She even stocked the fridge with fresh oj and provided us with coffee and a baguette. The apartment was very clean and the location was within walking distance to places to eat, have drinks, and shop. Would definitely stay with Pamela again.
Our stay with Pamela was easy and comfortable.The appartement is well equiped and spacious.
The Streets in the neibourhood are very steep for people from Holland, next door are 100 steps down towards the next street! We enjoyed it!
We had an enjoyable one month stay in Pamela's one bedroom apartment. The neighborhood was indeed lovely and very convenient. The apartment was spacious with a recently remodeled bathroom. Parking was never a problem. Pamela was very responsive both during the booking process and with the minor issues that arose. She is a great host.
I love Oakland and love meeting people from around the country and the world. Come visit our town and neighborhood and see all the wonderful things about the Bay area. You may never want to leave!
