About this listing
Who would choose a pricey hotel when you can have all the comforts of a home-away-from-home in your own private, cozy, fully-equipped, centrally- located studio?
This attached apartment is located in a quiet, family-friendly neighborhood. There is ample parking or a 10 minute walk to the SF Bay area rail system (BART). Fabulous biking and walking trails, as well as a movie theater, a farmer’s market, cafes and restaurants await your arrival. We are your friendly hosts who want nothing more than to make your stay wonderful and memorable. Yes, it is an AWESOME deal!
Where is this great neighborhood and this lovely home, you ask? The Richmond Annex is a gem of a place, tucked between the borders of the cities of Albany and El Cerrito. From this location you can hop a train to most anywhere you’d like to explore in the Bay Area (check out or you have easy access by car to popular destinations like Berkeley (5 mi to downtown/UC), SF (15 mi), and Marin County hotspots like Sausalito or Muir Woods (15-25 mi). The apartment is fully stocked with all the basics you’d expect in the full kitchen and bath, plus cable TV and free high speed internet access, so you can feel at home in our home. We invite you to consider staying with us for a day or a month…it’s up to you!
Outdoor amenities including: Gas BBQ grill, trampoline, lovely garden, high speed internet, laundry facilities, Hot tub and anything else that I have that they might need.
Interaction with guests
We are the folks from Book A Nook, a relational property management outfit. We love to meet our guests and see how we can make their stay a stellar experience, which is why so many of our guests return!
We love the diversity of homes, gardens, cuisines, artists, families and the quietness. I appreciate the friendliness of my neighbors. I love how close it is to everything in the city, and that I get to interact with nature.
Bart is 15 minute walk a way. Ample Bus lines all within a 10 min. walk. Ferry to SFO , 20 min drive.
Other things to note
We do charge $50 per pet, so if you plan on bringing yours, we will alter the reservation to add that fee.
We just got another router and the internet is super fast! This apartment is attached to our home. It has a separate entrance, bathroom, kitchen, but shares a wall with us. You may share the garden with us or another renter who books our home (though usually we are in the home!)
We will add a 10% Transient Occupancy Tax per the City or Richmond Regulations via the Airbnb resolution Center, which you will need to accept before we send you the lockbox combination.
Smoking anywhere on the property will result in the immediate loss of the security deposit for liquidated damages.
If you’d like to book for longer than 28 days, you will need to request the rest of the desired length of stay in 28 days increments or less. We will waive the additional cleaning fees. This assures that you will be renting as a short-term renter and that you agree to only occupy the place as a short-term renter.
We have a $50 per pet fee, which we will add to your reservation and that you must accept if you are bringing your furry friends.
