The space

Private room in spacious 1911 condo in hip Temescal neighborhood. Access to kitchen and shared yard space with outdoor seating. Street parking is generally available on the block.

Condo is only 2 blocks from the MacArthur BART station. From there it is 15 minutes to downtown SF or 6 minutes to Berkeley.

10 minute walk to restaurants and shops of both Temescal and Piedmont Ave including such hits as Bakesale Betty, Genova Delicatessen, Burma Superstar, Bay Wolf and PIzzaiolo.

A super sweet collie/shepherd mix lives here. He will not go into your room (unless invited), but welcomes all belly rubs.

While the bed is technically a futon, it is a fancy one with springs that is really more bed than normal futon.

Simone's place is great! Located in Temescal and close to tons of great restaurants, close to BART for traveling into the city or exploring other parts of East Bay—great location. Check in and check out were easy, and Simone was quick to answer any questions I had.

Overall it was great. The area was friendly and had some good places to eat. Very easily accessible from the Bart. There were a few issues like not having locks on the bedroom or bathroom. Simone is nice but does come off as standoffish at times.

Staying at Simone's made me fall in love with Oakland. You couldn't find a more perfect place to stay. 1. Her house is 2 blocks from the most convenient BART station, MacArthur. It was so easy to explore Oakland as well as zip over to the airport and go visit SFMOMA (art museum) …
