About this listing
Our sun-drenched apartment and roof terrace is located in a historic Julia Morgan building right on Piedmont Avenue, in the middle of Oakland's nicest shopping street, surrounded by trees and liveliness.
Our sun-drenched apartment + roof terrace is located exactly on Piedmont Avenue, right in the middle of Oakland's nicest shopping street, 10 minutes from the BART and an area of trees, pedestrians, cafes, gourmet grocery stores, restaurants, vintage shops, and Fenton's Ice Cream. Why stay in a tiny room in San Francisco when you can stay in a beautiful private apartment that's a 10-minute walk to the BART and less than a 20-minute train ride into the city?
Our East Bay (aka: sunnier side of the Bay!) pad gets lots of sun light because of the high ceilings and large windows. We also have a very well equipped kitchen, a large living room, a rooftop garden, and a private bedroom with an Indonesian hardwood bed, a great mattress, and soft sheets. We don't have a traditional TV because we've got something even better: a surround sound home theater system with 1080p HD LED projector across the whole wall. We've got a Roku hooked up with Netflix, etc. to watch movies, or you can hook up your own computer.
We're surrounded by many of Oakland's highlights, from Art Walk (First Friday) to Lake Merritt to farmer's markets to Jack London Square to Chinatown to to hiking in the hills. Piedmont Theater is also just two short blocks away, and there are many Michelin-recommended restaurants right on Piedmont Ave, including Commis, Dopo, and Adesso. You're also about a 5-minute drive from the Berkeley border and the College Ave. strip of Rockridge.
We're a close ride to the city (the BART is less than a mile away and the buses are incredibly convenient) but, of course, there's also plenty to explore in Oakland so we'll leave you with our favorite recommendations. Parking permits are available if you come with a car; you can park on the street nearby with a permit.
Piedmont is one of the safest neighborhoods I've ever lived in, and the surrounding area (Rockridge, Grand Ave, North Oakland) is awesome too. You'll be able to experience that yourselves through our friendly neighbors and community vibe.
Lastly, nobody will home during your stay so the entire apartment is 100% private.

Guests have access to the roof, all kitchen appliances and spices, and the Roku-powered projector for cinematic theater experiences.
