About this listing

Private, light, quiet studio w/bathroom in the Montclair District of the Oakland hills, with deck above. A 1.3 mile (level) pretty walk to Montclair Village, where you'll find cafés, restaurants, bookstores, groceries, a park; excellent weekly discount.

The space

Private, sunny, quiet studio w/bathroom in the Montclair District of Oakland. Separate from the main house with a private entrance. Convenient location: close to shopping area and freeway access. Bamboo floors, lots of light (but shades if you need them); the room has large windows looking out on a pretty garden. Queen bed w/down comforter, large closet and built in drawers. Cable TV w/HBO, high-speed WiFi, clock radio, local guides and a nice assortment of books & magazines.

We provide clean linens (including freshly laundered duvet cover for each guest), towels, tea and coffee w/your choice of milk, orange juice, and a welcome basket of snacks. The bathroom has a tiled floor and adjustable shower head in the shower; toiletries, iron/ironing board, blow dryer, umbrellas provided. Guests park in our driveway. Maps & guidebooks are in the room.

No kitchen--and not really conducive to food preparation--just mini-fridge, electric hot water pot & coffee maker.

Getting Around: The neighborhood is lovely, safe and friendly—lots of walkers! The house is a 1.3 mile level walk to the heart of Montclair Village, where you'll find cafés, restaurants, bookstores, groceries & pharmacies; as well as a Sunday Farmers' Market. A charming local library is a mile away. Lake Temescal—an attractive East Bay Regional Park—is just down the hill from us. The house is on a quiet street, yet just a few blocks from access to the freeway. Twenty minutes to S.F. during non-rush hour periods, and five minutes to Berkeley. The Rockridge BART station is 5 minutes away by car. (Please note: it's much easier to stay here if you have a car; it's a long, steep walk to the BART station, and the buses don't run frequently.)

Guest access

The private studio with bathroom is separate from the house, with parking in our driveway. Please feel free to enjoy the deck above the studio.

Interaction with guests

We are available for help in any way, but totally respect our guests' privacy.

Other things to note

In the room you'll find our Airbnb guidebook, maps, transportation schedules, suggestions for restaurants (including veggie), hiking, activities, etc., plus info re: medical services. And please feel free to ask us for other recommendations.

Check-in and check-out times can usually be adjusted; feel free to ask.

very nice private place in a quiet neighborhood the only sounds came from birds. This was our first airbnb and we were very pleased with our experience. The place had a lot of nice touches including a great shower.

We really appreciated the cleanliness and location. Would definitely recommend this place to others. Very private and easy access. A bit of a drive to San Francisco. Very nice accommodations. Highly recommend to others visiting Oakland area.

This rental is small, but very nice. Clean & comfortable. It's perfect for a quiet getaway, but close enough to city amenities. The neighborhood is especially pleasant and access to the freeway is excellent for getting around the area.

Great location near freeway but tucked away for quiet respite. Easy check-in and no-hassle parking in the driveway. Lots of amenities.
