About this listing
We are renting a quiet bedroom in a finished basement with a private bath. The bedroom has a queen-size bed, desk, microwave and closet. The room has a separate heater and fan so you can be comfortable at any time of the year. In the bathroom you will find a coffee maker with cups and coffee and tea. The shower is large and comfortable. You also have access to a fridge outside your room in the hallway. There is also a separate entrance if you don't want to enter through the living room.
As you saw in our profile, we are semi-retired. We would love to talk to you. Come and visit and we will do our best to answer all your questions. We have a large living room with a TV. You can join us or watch TV by yourself.
You are in the center of Sq. Hill. There are plenty of restaurants, coffee shops, ice cream parlors and a large super market. We have two movie theaters and a bunch of synagogues and churches. And everything is in walking distance - maximum 5 minutes.
There are also quite a few buses that go in every direction. If you are visiting the universities or hospitals in Oakland, it will be easy for you to get there.
We also have a nice large park near by called Shenley Park. You can go for a walk or run or take your children to play.
There are several gyms near by. You could get a day pass or weekly pass.
If you are interested in learning about different cultures, this is the place for you.
You are welcome to watch t.v in the living room and sit out on the porch.

Great neighborhood and nice amenities. Would stay again.
The location is great, quite convenient to take buses and go to restaurants. Besides, there are supermarkets and various kinds of restaurants around. Hosts are always truly nice and friendly. We definitely enjoy staying here.
There was initially some confusion when we arrived as our hosts didn't realize what day we were staying over. But it all worked out in the end, the room was nice and the location very convenient. Close proximity to the bus stop made it easy to head downtown and the neighborhood itself was great to walk around, lots of coffee shops/bars/restaurants to choose from.
Shlomit and her husband were very gracious hosts and the room was comfortable and quiet. The neighborhood is awesome with many stores and restaurants within a short walk. It's a short drive to the university area and it was fun to see so many folks walking in the shopping district. I would not hesitate to stay with Shlomit again.
Shlomit is a wonderful host. After talking to her, you know that you are in a safe and welcoming place.
Very nice spacious bedroom with large closet and a beautiful bathroom. I wish the room had a window, but in the description it was clearly indicated that this is a basement level and I guess a moderate price reflects it. Accommodation is very private and even has its own entrance from the back of the house. It can also be entered from the owner's living room. Highly recommended!
I had a pleasant stay at Shlomit and Ben's house.
The place was kept clean and very cozy. My hosts were very well-prepared and had everything ready for me. Great location too - there is a shopping area within 3-minute walk. Bus stops are also close by.
I would stay again, and I recommend it for other visitors too.
