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?
The 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 (website hidden)), 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, hot tub, trampoline, lovely garden, high speed internet, laundry facilities 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 just got another router and the internet is super fast!
We appreciate folks who are as mindful and considerate as we are. Absolutely no smoking anywhere on the property. Please refrain from loud noises between the hours of 10 PM and 7 AM. Thanks!
Quite comfortable for a single traveller. The neigbourhood is quiet.
A basket of treats greeted me upon arrival and made me feel at home.
There is a lovely kitchen that is stocked with utensils and basics like spices, tea, coffee and oil and vinegar, so you can make yourself a dinner without having to buy everything.
Our Airbnb in Richmond was great. It had all the amenities needed to make our stay, in the Bay Area a great success. Checking in was a piece of cake, and the communication between Limor was precise. The best thing about this accommodation was, it’s very close to the BART Station. Which made transportation to San Francisco very convenient. There was also many markets and restaurants nearby, so finding places to eat was easy. The studio is very comfortable, and the perfect amount of space for a couple. We strongly recommend staying here, you won’t be disappointed!! :)
Linor's studio was absolutely perfect for my fiance and I and Linor was nothing but an absolute pleasure. She obviously puts a great deal of effort and thought into the experience of her guests and I cannot recommend her more highly. We fully plan on staying at one of Linor's properties next time we are in the bay area.
Limor is awesome! She was very welcoming and helped us get settled in. The house is close to some great shops and a BART station, which was very helpful. The room was not only clean, but well coordinated. This place was exactly what we needed, but I wish we had stayed longer!
Very cute place. Had a lot of character and all the essentials to dwell and cook. She left a really nice breakfast basket and fresh milk. Pretty garden behind the house. The only downfall was that the neighbors in the shared house were really loud. Sound really traveled through that wall. Other than the noise we enjoyed our stay. Thank you for having us.
Limor is a very gracious host. Thanks Limor for the delicious cinnamon bread and chocolate bar. They we’re both delicious and appreciated!
The Richmond/ El Cerrito location sits right above the Interstate Hwy 80/580 which provides easy access to all points directly into San Francisco, East Bay (Oakland – Berkeley) and beyond. It is also just a few blocks off of CA Route 123 that is very convenient for grocery, misc shopping needs and plenty of restaurants. For dog owners Point Isabel Regional Shoreline is a mile down the road offering one of the largest dog parks within California.
The apartment is clean and well appointed with a lovely backyard. It’s a good value for travelers and their pets! You won’t be disappointed since Limor, a top notch professional strives to make sure your stay a comfortable one:)
We really enjoyed staying at Limor's place for 2 weeks! She instantly made us feel welcome by leaving a delightful basket of goodies in the kitchen for our first breakfast. We had our privacy, but if we needed anything, she was always available, which was wonderful. The apartment is very cozy, but it has absolutely everything that you might want or need. The decoration and space management of the place was perfect. The backyard was a nice place to hang out when the weather was warm. The apartment is very centrally located, with a short walk to BART and to many great shops, markets and stores. It was a great base for us to easily explore San Francisco and the Bay Area. Thank you Limor!!! :)
