Sunny Rm near Temescal and Piedmont

House - Private room · Terrace Street, Oakland, CA 94611, United States

East facing bedroom in a gracious 1910 Craftsman style home. Designed and built by architect Wilson Wyeth (who designed churches for the Episcopal diocese in the same period) the house is in the shape of a cross giving the house an open feeling.

The Space

This lovely east facing bedroom with a shared bath is in a great 1910 Craftsman style home. Back garden with dining table for evening relaxation. Front garden has a swinging bench seat. Breakfast included in the rental, use of the kitchen by arrangement. Owners, Pam and Richard are well travelled and interested in meeting people from all over the world. House is in a quiet neighborhood with street parking and lots of lovely streets for walking.

Like to hike: The Regional Parks in the Berkeley/Oakland Hills are spectacular destinations, or if you just want a light walk, the 3.5Mi/ 5K walk around the beautiful Lake Merritt in Oakland is easy to get to from our house and a great way to enjoy water birds who live or migrate through this area each year. You can rent boats at the Oakland Parks and Rec Sailboat House (sailing, canoes, kayaks, paddle boats) and get a different perspective on Oakland's downtown area.

Like to tour unusual places? Hanger One Vodka, located near the Port of Oakland gives tours and tastings of their infused vodkas and gins. Located on the airstrip of an old Naval Air Station, the views to the skyline of San Francisco are incredible. Next door is Rock Wall Winery with a cafe and tasting room as well. Have a meal and watch the sun go down behind the cityscape...a real treat!

Guest Access

Use of Garden and Kitchen as desired.

Interaction with Guests

We have a lot of travel in our own lives and have stayed in airbnb as well as more "traditional" B&Bs in many places. We love to help people find their way around our region and are happy to interact as much or as little as our guest desire! This is our home and we are welcoming our guests into our home not just a room.

The Neighborhood

Walk to the happening Temescal or Piedmont Avenue areas of Oakland which is home to some of the best restaurants and shops in the East Bay. Clubs and more restaurants are just a mile or so down Broadway into "Uptown" location of the famous Paramount Theatre! Or travel north into the Rockridge District of North Oakland. House is walking distance to BART and one block off of main bus lines. Easy access to San Francisco, Berkeley and North Bay. A 15 min. bus ride to Telegraph Avenue in Berkeley and the CAL campus!
