This Host committed to Airbnb's 5-step enhanced cleaning process.
Our Mediterranean style, sunny, spacious home is located in the tranquil hills of Piedmont Pines in Montclair, an Oakland suburb. Relax surrounded by the beauty of nature, steps away from regional parks and hiking trails, just 5 minutes from shopping in Montclair Village, and 15 minutes from downtown Oakland by car. We are 10 minutes from a BART train stop that gets you to San Fran in 12 minutes. A restful oasis just moments away from all the city has to offer.

The space
This is my first foray into hosting. My husband and I are looking forward to having you visit us, and are happy to do what we can to make your stay a pleasant one. Details on the space:

Your quiet and restful room is located on the upper level of the house, with windows that line one side. As advertised, it is a very peaceful space with art-lined walls, a queen bed and a writing desk. There is NO TV in the room. You will awake to the sound of birds chirping, and may, if you are lucky, spot the occasional deer.

This room is one of 2 bedrooms in our house that share a bathroom. If both rooms are booked, the spa-like bathroom with granite countertops, expansive mirrors, and glass walled shower is shared. If not, it is all yours!

While we do not offer breakfast, we are always well stocked with fruit, energy bars, and a variety of coffees and teas. If you like to cook, please feel free to use our chef’s kitchen. We ask only that you clean up after yourself, and put your dishes in the dishwasher. In addition, we have a washer and dryer in the house which you are welcome to use.

Hardwood floors line all of the common spaces. Because noise travels, and to help keep the floor clean, we ask that you take off your shoes while in the house. Please, no excessive noise.

Please, no lighting candles, incense or open flames. We are respectful of our neighbors and are cognizant of the high fire risk in our area. All areas indoor and out are NON-SMOKING.

While inside, please feel free to relax in the living room, family room and kitchen. Make yourself comfortable outdoors on the balcony off of the living room (complete with table and chairs), or on the patio outside of the kitchen (with outdoor seating and a fountain).

As entrepreneurs, my husband and I often work from home. Depending on our schedules, one or both of us may be on the premises during the day.
If you’d like to have visitors, please arrange with me beforehand. No overnight visitors.

We will leave a list of our favorite local restaurants in your room, but please feel free to ask us for additional suggestions and /or let us know how we can help you. We hope that during your stay, you see the Oakland that makes us feel so lucky to live here.

Our quiet and hilly neighborhood offers plenty of free street parking. Please do not park in our driveway as it prevents us from entering and exiting the garage.

Regional trails are minutes away by foot. Whether you explore these areas by foot or by bike, they are a great way to explore some of Oakland’s natural wonders.

Where you’ll be

Oakland, California, United States

Montclair is a hillside residential community that is close to all of the activities of downtown Oakland, but seems a world apart. Outdoor activities - walking, jogging, riding bicycles, etc are a popular pastime. The pace is a slow one, with people gathering at friends' homes for dinners, and often stopping one another in downtown Montclair to say hello and catch up on the latest news.
