Located in a safe historic neighborhood, close to the San Leandro BART, 580, OAK airport, and ten minutes from downtown. Not what you'd expect from Oakland! A truly unique sanctuary complete with a creek, Redwoods, friendly dogs, and an experienced Superhost! You’ll love my place because of the the outdoors spaces, the neighborhood, and the thoughtful accommodations. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers.

Guests w/dogs must check in early for an intro.

The space
Spacious room with 40 inch flat screen smart TV, elliptical, recliner, work space, and an amazing view of the redwoods and the ever flowing creek through a massive double pain window. You'll feel like you're in a luxe tree house.

There is a hot water kettle, local coffee and tea in the room, as well as a mini fridge available. An optional homemade healthy and delicious organic breakfast can be made available after 9am in the main house on the dining table when requested at booking.

The bathroom is in the main house, but your creekside studio is completely private. The shared bathroom is stocked with organic shampoo, conditioner, and shower gel, as well as luxe clean towels.

The yards are spacious and serene and you are encouraged to spend time in them.

Cannabis use is aloud outside. To tobacco use on property due to allergies.

Guest access
Parking is available directly in front of the home.

A shared clean bathroom with a shower and all expected amenities are provided.

The yards are spacious and serene and you are encouraged to spend time in them.

Beautiful and safe neighborhood close to parks, Starbucks, Rite Aid, and an exceptional market. Hiking trails are accessed through the neighborhood and we are a short drive to Lake Chabot park and golf course. Great area to go jogging, biking, or kayaking at the lake. Uber and Lyft service the area.

During your stay
My husband and I and our dogs are in the home but we will make every attempt to keep to ourselves. If I am working from home I will likely pour you a glass of something amazing. Normally we work late shifts at restaurants so likely won't be seen the majority of the time.

A simple breakfast made of primarily organic ingredients is available upon request with fresh ground coffee, and will be set out on the dining room table around 9am. Fresh fruit and vegetables from our garden will also be set out and used when available.

I am heavily ingrained in the food and wine scene and am happy to make recommendations for places to go and things to do in order for you to make the most of your stay.
