Spacious, private quiet, light-filled, artsy upper flat in a duplex, great for work or vacation. Nice walk to BART & Oakland's popular Temescal & Rockridge areas - cafés, bars, restaurants, shops. Easy to UC Berkeley campus, CCA, Piedmont & downtown.
Tons of light all day, quiet while just a minute from the freeway, filled with fun colorful arts and crafts.
You'll enjoy 2 bedrooms, a dining room, a bathroom with a tub / shower, a living room, and a laundry room with a dryer (I'm working on getting a washer!).
The full kitchen has appliances and supplies including a gas stove, coffee machine, electric espresso machine, stovetop espresso machine, refrigerator, blender, toaster, cork screw, plates, glasses, silverware, professional knives, basic spices, cutting boards ... and if you need anything else let me know.
The entire upper flat is yours to use with a completely separate, private entrance.
I love saying hello, pointing out all the area highlights that may fit with your time and interests, and making sure you are comfortable. I call myself a food concierge, and it's my delight to share our bounty (and can arrange to give you a private insider tour to local food artisans as well!)
As an avid world traveler, I know how memorable and wonderful great hospitality can be! I also understand that you may just want a nice place to stay without socializing. Whatever makes you happy!
An area filled with California Bungalows, we are surrounded by amazing cafes - walk to the new Blue Bottle Coffee on Broadway, morning pastries at Pizzaiolo, and stroll down tree-lined College Ave past cute shops and restaurants all the way to the UC Campus.
You can walk or bike. You can drive (and easily park, unlimited). You can bus. You can BART. Your choice!
Many people who stay here say they don't want to leave.
SAFETY IS #1. This is a home so you'll have code-compliant fire and carbon monoxide detectors, a fire extinguisher, flashlights, emergency information, and all the other little things that are important to have "just in case."

The apartment was in a great location. The kitchen was nice and well equipped. Susie was a thoughtful hostess. She left treats that were much appreciated.
First stop in the Bay Area, we were very impressed with the Rock Ridge and Temescal neighborhoods, as there are plenty of good restaurants and a vibrant street life around the BART stations. Susie our host, was very helpful during the entire stay from the initial phone conversation, directions, details, and suggestions about more permanent housing during our search. The private entry is nice and there is parking on the street. The large upstairs floor is very comfortable and loaded with artwork and amenities. Well stocked. We were greeted with a bottle of wine, snacks, and even some sweet condiments in the fridge. We highly recommend this Artsy abode and could not be happier with our our stay.
Great neighborhood, good location and close to our son's house and the BART. The apartment was very clean and well stocked with all the amenities one would expect at home. The private entrance is a plus. Susie is a great host.
We had a wonderful stay at Susie's house. It was exactly as described and in a very convenient area to everything. Very quiet. Parking never a problem. There were some issues that were addressed completely and without needed follow up. Enjoy the coffee!
We just enjoyed a 2+ week-long stay at Susie's apartment and found it to be the PERFECT option for our extended stay. The apartment is large and comfortable and was always a pleasure to return to at the end of the day. The location is fantastic, situated within easy walking distance of the shops and restaurants of College Ave. as well as Oakland's hip up-and-coming Temescal district. Local rail transit (BART) is only a ten-minute walk, making the entire Bay Area easily accessible. Susie was a warm, friendly and accommodating host. I would have no hesitation booking here again or recommending her apartment to others.
Super nice, helpful host. Great apartment. There is even an espresso machine. I would stay here again. Convenient location.
Wonderful host and beautiful, clean, and convenient home. My coworkers absolutely love staying here and will be returning here again next time we have internal retreats. Thank you Susie for being so accommodating!
My family and I had a great time staying at Susie's place. Susie was really nice and considerate. The apartment was perfect for the 3 of us staying there and we felt at home. I would definitely recommend her as a host.
Cosy, comfortable home. Had espresso maker, great coffee provided, and many treats host provided for us during our stay- cookies, fresh figs, etc…Location was perfect- close to BART station, and all cafes and restaurants. Great experience..
This was my first experience renting a space and it was the best decision I could've made. The house was perfect for the four of us. The rooms were big but had a very cozy feel. The neighborhood quiet and beautiful. It was a great place to go out exploring or stay in and curl up with a book. Parking was plentiful. We had two cars and never had to park either one more than two houses away.
Susie is a wonderful host! Unfortunately I didn't get to meet her in person, but she was very warm and friendly and had a great sense of humor even through email. Her instructions were easy to follow and included great places to go in the neighborhood. She provided coffee, tea, snacks and other treats I didn't expect. I would definitely stay with Susie again if I make a trip back to the bay area and would recommend her to anyone!
