Great location95% of recent guests gave this home’s location a 5-star rating.

Entire lower level of gorgeous California hillside home. Your own private bedroom, living room, and bathroom. Access to main upstairs with kitchen, dining room & backyard deck. We have a near perfect walk-ability score - easy walking distance to all the shops in Uptown Oakland, Lake Merritt, and BART. The house has a city view, is tastefully decorated throughout, and surrounded by a peaceful garden. Please review other things to note regarding the stairs. Also, I do not charge a cleaning fee.

Richard's downstairs apartment is private and quiet, very clean, and just a few minutes walk from anything you might need in Adam's Point. Hands-down the best place to stay in the area!

Enjoyed my stay. Very friendly host. Bathroom was a little tight on space, but did the trick. House is up on a hill away from city noise. Excellent location, very walkable to most Oakland. Access to beautiful deck with garden, very nice.
