About this listing
Sunny and open home. Three blocks to BART with a 15 minute ride to San Francisco. 3 miles to UC Berkeley. A few restaurants right around the corner and many shops and restaurants within 1 mile. Hardwood floors, complete kitchen, LCD television.
Light and airy two bedroom home near MacArthur BART, with frequent trains to San Francisco. Easy access to UC Berkeley, downtown Oakland, Berkeley hills, shopping, bars, yoga, restaurants, etc.
Access to all kitchen utensils and cooking supplies, ingredients and staples.
I love the great coffee shops and bakeries right around the corner. There is an awesome yoga studio four blocks away and many great restaurants including fish tacos, mac and cheese, beer/sausage garden, korean, japanese, to high end fancy within walking distance. The commute to downtown SF or Berkeley is a piece of cake. It's still Oakland, so the feel is urban and slightly gritty, but my street is quiet.
Napa and Sonoma wine country is a one hour drive north, and there are great walks in the Oakland and Berkeley hills nearby.
Buses and BART are both incredibly close and easy.
BART is the best access from airport. A taxi from Oakland Airport costs about $45.
Parking is on the street. Let me know if you will have a car because I need to leave a parking permit out for you. I can usually find parking within one-half block of my house, but occasionally a guest ends up parking around the corner. You may park across the front of my driveway but not in the driveway because it is too short.
Other Things to Note
There is an in-law unit with a separate entrance under the back half of the house. The tenant is in her mid-twenties and has a full time day job. She has a dog, which I can occasionally hear, but which is generally quiet. The living room/TV/stereo of my house (this listing) is over the garage so it doesn't impact the in-law unit much, but please keep the volume at a normal speaking level after 10 pm..
There is one queen sized bed with a new mattress and one full sized futon. The queen mattress is a fancy split type, with the left side more firm than the right side (looking from the foot of the bed). The futon is foam and firm. I listed it for four people because that's how many fit the real beds. But more could sleep on the couch or on my camping pads on the floor.
As if it's your own house. Everything in the kitchen and fridge is fair game, just avoid the wine rack :)
Well behaved pets are OK. $5 extra per night for pets.
From Dec 19, 2015 - Jan 03, 2016 the minimum stay is 5 nights.
