About this listing

This is a 2 room private apartment suite in a 1920's Craftsman Bungalow in Oakland, Ca. The suite has a private entrance, living room, bathroom, and bedroom. Cafes, groceries, and shopping available within walking distance. San Francisco is 30-45min drive or 50min on public transportation.

The space

This 2 room private apartment suite has its own entrance into the living room area, which has a small table, mini fridge, microwave, coffee machine, a couch and a television that streams Netflix, Hulu Plus, HBOgo, ShowtimeAnytime, Amazon Prime, and other roku channels.

The bedroom has three windows that provide lots of light and fresh air. There is a queen size bed, a desk, and a closet. The closet has lots of hanging space and an installed drawer system to keep your clothes tidy during your stay.

The bathroom is a full-bath with shower, bathtub, and lots of light.

There is wireless internet in the house.
There is ample street parking in our neighborhood if you are traveling with a car.

My daughter, Louise, lives on premises full-time and I am in town for a few days 1-2 times a month. We live in the adjacent part of the house divided by walls and locked doors, there are no shared spaces in the house between guests and hosts.

We are both quiet people who give our guests complete privacy during their stay. However, you can always contact us via email and phone. Though we may not meet our guests face-to face, we are always happy to assist you with tips or insights that may help you have a positive visit to the Bay Area.

Guest access

Guests have access to the 2 room private suite which includes a living room, bathroom, and bedroom. These spaces are separate from the main house; guests and hosts do not share space.

Interaction with guests

My daughter, Louise and I (on occasion) live in this lovely 3 bedroom/2 bath house. Our living space is completely separate from the Airbnb rental space, so this provides ample privacy to those visiting and living here. Though this is a private, self-accessible rental, Louise and I are always available via email, phone, and in person when necessary. Guests should always contact us with questions or concerns and we would happily help to make your stay enjoyable.

What a cute little place to stay! The private suite was just what we needed for our night in the east bay. The layout fit the two of us comfortably and we were able to come and go with ease as we explored the area. Benicia was a gracious host, I would definitely stay here again.

For the Bay Area the price is hard to beat. The amenities are stellar for what you pay for and Benicia is an awesome host. Nice neighborhood with everything you need. Will definitely stay again if I need a night away!

All the arrangements went without a hitch. Communication was prompt and apartment access was simple - complete with step by step photos texted. It was great to have a private, quiet apartment at a very reasonable price. Clear instructions and descriptions of local resources were available in the very well organized space. Restaurants and shops were a very short walk away. The hostess was gracious. What more could one want?

I can say that our stay at Marie's place was perfect. Just exactly what we needed. A very comfortable bed, clean and huge bathroom. There was no full kitchen but the microwave, the mini fridge and coffee maker were sufficient for us. There was coffee and tea available. Over all, i have no complaints. I will stay at Marie's whenever i visit oakland again.

Hi, I am an entrepreneur who has started and run my own winery and restaurant in the last 20 years. I enjoy pursuing new endeavors and have recently invested some of my time in properties both in Lake County, where my current restaurant is located, and in Oakland, where my daughter Louise lives.

I enjoy traveling and tasting the fantastic foods of other countries. I am a community driven person who supports many local fundraising events and organizations. These passions have led me to pursue the opportunity to host the travels of guests in the Airbnb community.

I am an older professional, so I am inclined to enjoy quiet evenings at home or out dining on the town, not really the late-night party type. I enjoy gardening and growing my own food for cooking culinary treats. I believe in making the most out of what life has to offer.
