About This Listing
My Craftsman home with a mid-century style is located in a sunny, hip, and walkable part of Oakland. The backyard catches excellent morning light and is the perfect place for a cup of coffee. My guest room is ideal for one or two people exploring the East Bay!
My house is on a quiet, bike-laned street just a few blocks away from the BART and a short walk to great restaurants and coffee shops on Telegraph Ave.
The guest room has a dresser, a very comfortable bed, and French doors, which allow excellent natural light.
Most of the home is furnished with mid-century pieces, the rest is all furniture I made.
The backyard is an awesome place to hang out. I have most meals on the deck in the sun or under the lights. When you're out there you definitely feel like you're in California!
You'll have access to your room, the living room, kitchen, bathroom, laundry room and backyard.
Interaction with Guests
I work from home several days a week so there I'll often grab coffee with my guests when they're around.
Temescal is my favorite part of Oakland. It's sunny, full of great restaurants, and super convenient to both SF and Berkeley by BART.
The MacArthur BART stop is a 9 minute walk away. You'll be in downtown SF in 25-30 minutes.
Craig was a great host. Welcoming, respectful, and friendly. He was at the ready to help when needed but never stood over us, we had plenty of privacy. His home was comfortable and in a safe easily accessible neighborhood. Our stay in Craig's home exceeded our expectations for our first Airbnb experience.
Craig was super cool. Since we arrived late the first night he left out a note and also left out fruit for us to snack on everyday. The place was really clean and exactly like the pictures. Great location if you're going into the city and Craig was really nice!
I loved it. The room is nice. Craig is an excellent host. House location is awesome. It is in quiet area, but still really close to MacArthur BART station and Temescal eateries and shops.
I also got some hints and tips from Craig what to do on the area and those were just really, really good.
Had a great time in Oakland, thank's to the hospitality of Craig Cannon. He made me feel very comfortable in his home, and was very accommodating. And OMG, the SHEETS! I have never slept in softer, more comfortable sheets! Sheer bliss, for sure. All in all an excellent experience. I expect I will avail myself of Craig's hospitality again the next time I come to Oakland.
Craig is an excellent host - he seems cut out for airbnb. His home is calm and beautiful and perfectly located to explore Oakland and venture to San Francisco. On a super quiet street with plenty of space - enough to fit a bicycle in the closet. Enjoyed it so much that I'm considering staying again!
Craig was a very welcoming host giving us good tips. The room was exactly what we needed. Better to have a car

About the Host, Craig
I grew up on the East Coast, living in NYC and VT before moving to Oakland. In NYC I worked at The Onion and now I run a company called Cultivated Wit with friends.
In my spare time I enjoy hiking and biking. In 2013 I hiked the John Muir Trail. In 2014 I biked the coast of Portugal. I'd be happy to share my Bay Area trail/road recommendations with you!
