I am excited to share and show off my humble two bedroom apartment a block away from the spectacular and tranquil Lake Merritt!
My apartment is carpeted wall to wall making it very quiet and peaceful.
The building includes all the modern luxuries anyone would desire (dishwasher, laundry room, wifi, living room balcony)
I am a 3 block walk from the AC Transit NL bus that goes into San Francisco
15 minute walk to 19th Street BART
2 block walk to AC Transit bus to UC Berkeley!
I am a five minute walk from the Grand Lake Farmers market that occurs every Saturday.
not to mention "Restaurant Row" on Lakeshore Ave. Tons of great eating and Libations!
Did you know the first bird sanctuary (est. 1870) in the US is a 3 minute walk from my apartment? It's true and it's amazing!
While here, check out a movie at the Grand Lake Theater.
Steve is a great host. He is very chill and laid back and he was awesome about answering any questions I had in a timely manner. He even let me borrow one of his ties for my interview after I realized I had forgotten to pack mine. Such a life saver!
The place was just as advertized. Everything was nice and clean. The bed was a little short for me (I am 6'0" for reference), but it wasn't uncomfortably short. The mattress was comfortable and Steve provided extra blankets if it got cold.
The Neighborhood was nice. It was just a short stroll to the water, as well as several nice restaurants and bars. There is even a really cool old movie theater near by that everyone should check out called the Grand Lake.
I can't recommend this place highly enough. Thanks again Steve!
The reservation was canceled 10 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Steve was a great host. Very kind and considerate and made me feel right at home. The place was quiet and comfortable, and you couldn't ask for a better location. Walking distance to Lake Merritt, the Grand Theatre, Trader Joe's and restaurants and shops on Lakeshore Blvd.
Steve was an incredible host! He met me in a very short notice and gave me a rundown on the place as well as quick an easy ways to get around. He's a pleasant soul and I thoroughly enjoyed staying here.
I was in Oakland looking fir a quite area to relax before heading home for the Holidays. Steve's place was perfect, It was close to Lake Merritt and has a lot of great restaurants in the area. Couldn't ask for a better host.
Steve is a very gracious host with a beautiful place! He was friendly and amiable while also being happy to give me privacy and the run of the place when he was at work. The apartment is in a great location. There are two cats and while the place is quite clean if you're allergic at all you might reconsider.
I appreciate how flexible Steve was with my arrival / leaving times and baggage etc. It was a pleasure to stay with someone so chill and I'd love to stay again!
Steve is a great guy and makes you feel at home. Has great ideas for what things to do and where to go. Highly recommended!
Steve is a very nice guy to live with. He is very quite and helpful. He will recommend you some restaurants nearby which are all very good. The apt is at a very nice location. I will walk around Lake Merritt every evening. Thank you Steve!
Steve was a great host. He has a clean and well-maintained place. He was helpful and gave tips on cheap ways of getting to San Francisco which was really nice. I would definitely go back again. Thanks Steve!
Steve’s place was very comfy and relaxed and I felt at home there. Especially enjoyed the sunny windows. Steve was a superb host. Helpful answers/tips about area restaurants and transport. Great balance between fun engaging company and privacy – matching my needs at the time. I hope to be able to stay there again when I’m in the area.
