The Space

Enjoy the peace and quiet of this lovely bedroom, located on the second floor, in this tree-lined community, just 20 minutes from downtown San Francisco and 1.5 miles to the BART train (or take the casual carpool just 1 block away). The express bus to downtown SF is also just one block away. Walking distance to trendy Piedmont Avenue and Lakeshore Avenue shops, restaurants and movie theaters. Enjoy the Saturday morning farmers market at the Grand Lake area.

The Neighborhood

We are within a 4 block walk to Piedmont Avenue, which is a wonderful area with a variety of restaurants, a movie theatre, a great grocery market and produce shops, as well as bookstores and gift shops. Parking is plentiful and free around the house. Walk through the Rose Garden right down the street from my home.

Getting around

BART is just a mile and a half from the house. If I am able, I will gladly meet you at the BART station. The casual carpool into downtown San Francisco during the morning commute hours is just a block away.

  • Linda is a lovely lady with an amazing amount of energy and caring for others. She pre-approved me and helped when I got stuck trying to complete my registration. We were in contact immediately and she assured me that sharing a bathroom would be easy, since there was an extra one if needed, on the first floor of her beautiful house in Piedmont. The garden was well kept both inside and out and the place was immaculate. The room was bright,colorful, and bigger than shown and the bed more comfortable than our own at home. The two cats were friendly and no problem. My husband and I love to walk and take public transportation and the bus stop is only steps away so I feel we made the right choice in choosing this BnB offering. Linda asked what we liked for breakfast and hot coffee was ready in the morning and fresh fruit as well as some irresistible chocolate wafers, tea,cereal and fruit. She even picked up us at the Bart station after we spent a day in San Francisco and came home late. It was an amazing 4 day, 3 night experience thanks to our gracious host and I highly recommend it, as does my husband. He especially liked getting help from Linda on places to visit and how to get there using her map and advice.

    Dear Judith and Will,
    Thanks for the wonderful review. It was a pleasure having you both as my guests. You shouldn't have left what you did in the cookie jar, but thanks. I've already made sure there are more of those biscotti available. Wishes for a wonderful summer.

  • We (my teen daughter and I) enjoyed a perfect stay here. It felt like home after visiting with relatives and touring the town by foot (Piedmont Ave., Rose Garden, and Lake Merritt), bus (one block away) and car (easy neighborhood parking). Especially nice was access to a well-stocked kitchen. Thanks so much Linda!

  • Linda's warm and inviting home is in a beautiful, safe,and centrally located area of Oakland. She and Christian are very welcoming and attentive. Everything is kept immaculately clean and well-decorated.

    Since I drove there, I was concerned about parking overnight--but I didn't need to be. There was always plenty of unrestricted parking on the street or in the driveway.

    I am so glad I found this listing! I will be staying here again in August.

  • I had a wonderful stay at Linda's place! The house, room and bathroom are all exceptionally clean. The bed is really comfortable, great closet space provided and lovely morning light. Linda and her husband Christian were incredibly kind hosts who were always willing to help and made great suggestions for places to eat/things to do in the area. I highly recommend Linda's place to anyone - it was a peaceful and happy week in Oakland!

  • Linda welcomed us with open arms and made us feel at home even with unexpected short notice due to a previous booking cancelled by another host due to a family emergency. The house is clean, the guest room has a computer desk, comfortable bed and a dedicated closet for belongings. We had plenty of privacy combined with easy communication over a few days. Not to mention two cats (one quite talkative) for cat friendly guests! Easy on street parking in a very quiet neighborhood, while convenient to the freeway. Thank you Linda for your generous hospitality and especially the use of your already full fridge! John & Christine

  • This was my mother's 2nd visit at Linda's airbnb. This time she was in the bedroom with a shared bath.
    Linda's house is very pleasant and in a quiet neighborhood. Piedmont Avenue is within a 10-minute walk, and an AC Transit bus stop is closer, just down the hill.
    Linda provides a good breakfast selection. My mother also brought meals home and was able to store left-overs in the refrigerator.
    There are two very friendly cats in the house and my mother enjoyed their company.
    Thank you Linda!

  • Linda's home & the room were both exactly what I was looking for! Having just moved to the SF area I needed a clean and friendly place while I looking for a permanent location. Linda gave some priceless insider knowledge and made me feel right at home. Street parking was effortless, strong wifi connection and plentiful teas & fruit were a welcomed touch for a weary traveler. Highly recommended!

  • My stay with Linda was just great. Located in a safe clean neighborhood close to my daughter who I had come to visit. Nice room, clean, spacious, and nicer hosts. They made me feel completely welcome and were so helpful. Can't wait to come again!

  • Just what I needed. Close, convenient, clean, & comfortable.
