Welcome to this very special corner of Oakland!

From here you can walk to:
- Lake Merritt
- Amazing restaurants, cafes, bars and shops
- Grocery stores & pharmacies
- Bart Station, City Bikes & Zip Car

Run, bike, skate or stroll along the water over to Grand Lake for shopping, every kind of cuisine, bird watching, live music and movies at the charming Grand Lake Theater. Less than 5 minutes to the freeway, a quick drive to beaches, hiking in the redwoods and a 20 min drive to San Francisco!

The space
This is my light filled oasis which I invite you to share. It's a turn of the century building filled with vintage and antique relics from all over the world as well as artwork and furniture that I've made. I'm a feng shui based interior designer and everything in the space has been carefully chosen and placed in order to make it a memorable, welcoming and harmonious experience for everyone.

Guest access
You will have one airy private bedroom with a large window offering lots of beautiful light that comes with a bathroom you will share just with me.
In addition there is a kitchen & dining room, bar & counter for tea and snacks and spacious living room for relaxing & reading. If you're staying for an extended period you may use the kitchen to occasionally prepare food, but please try to limit your cooking to light use.
There is no dishwasher so I just ask that you thoroughly wash all cups and utensils with ample soap. Also, a washer & dryer is available for an additional $10 fee per use. If this listing is booked please inquire about my other private room with ensuite bath!

Other things to note
If you have a vehicle anywhere in the Bay Area, do not leave anything out or visible. This isn't intended to raise alarm, it's just best to be on the safe side!
