Cute, spacious apartment in heart of Temescal, close to Bart and some of the best restaurants and bars the Bay Area has to offer.
The flat has a bright main bedroom with queen bed and desk, 2nd full bedroom, living room, kitchen, bath & yard.

The space

This super cute first floor 2 bedroom apartment is in the heart of Temescal and just round the corner from some of the best eateries in the Bay Area.
The main bedroom features a comfy queen bed, large closet and a desk, and the other bedroom has a full size bed and closet. It's a very comfortable space for 3 or 4 people. The large kitchen has everything you need to cook meals at home and has a back door with stairs down to the yard. The living room is nice and quiet and great for relaxing.

Guest access

Guests will enjoy the location and old world charm. There is good wi-fi, but no TV or laundry, though there is a great laundromat round the corner. It's a great place centrally located and ideal for exploring the Bay Area or for access to UC Berkeley which is just up the road.

Interaction with guests

You will have the whole apartment to yourself. I don't live on the property but always respond promptly to questions by phone, email or text

Other things to note

The apartment has lots of sheets, towels and toiletries. The kitchen has a full complement of flatware, silverware and cookware and we try to keep it stocked with a few cooking staples.

The place is as advertised. Keep in mind this is an old building. Not met with the renter but communication was easy. The location is ok if you want a place to stay while visiting San Francisco (12 minutes walk from the metro station, then 20-25 transit to SF). The place can be noisy from time to time (restaurant next door, new baby downstairs, trash pickup early in the morning)...ear plugs helped in those cases. The backyard is a nice thing to have after a long day visiting San Francisco.

If you just need a place to stay, it is close to all the bars and restaurants. You won't be wowed by the accommodations. Expect bare minimums. Bring everything you need with you because there is next to nothing in the apartment.

This is a great place to stay if your looking for a short break in Oakland or a San Francisco. MacArther BART station is 5 - 10minutes walk away so it's easy to get around, there is also an abundance of great pubs and restaurants near by.

If you are looking for a budget place to lay your head, if style, warmth, and cleanliness don't matter much, especially if you don't plan to spend much time at your airbnb, this might be the place for you. This is our seventh airbnb experience and so far, our only unfortunate one. We got the feeling we were staying with an airbnb slumlord because we got the impression profit was his only objective. However, our reasons might not be applicable to all folks. Pros: good location to the highway to SF, shops, restaurants, and Berkeley Lower cost Decent master bedroom mattress Plenty of hot water Cons: Low cleanliness;dust,musty air and furniture, grime, cluttered patio with filthy table with a rat trap on it, our laundry bag became infested with ants, rows of garbage totes outside Lack of maintenance; curtains held up with tacks, leaking tub and toilet, broken blinds, zero attention to aesthetics Lack of professional communication; we had a situation where our travel plans changed, (flight times) outside of our control. We reached out to our host ten days in advance to attempt to change our check in time by one day. After sending multiple messages and actually calling, we began to consider our other options, having reduced confidence that we were being heard and needing to find a plan while traveling with four young children. Our host answered after five days of silence, now within his 50% refund policy time frame. We ended up agreeing to pay 50% for a day we didn't use. Overall, we were left feeling a lack of concern for our situation and found that reflected in the care and presentation of his flat.

The apartment was very clean and neat when we arrived and the place was easily accessible. Andy was prompt in fixing the faulty lamps and flexible when we requested for an extension. Overall it was a pleasant stay at the apartment and will definitely recommend it!

Andy is a very friendly and accommodating host. The apartment is very well located in the heart of Temescal, a short walk from McArthur Bart station. I spent 6 days there with my 2 daughters (9 and 11) and we biked around a lot, which was great! The place is simple and practical, nothing fancy but everything works and the price is right. I'd recommend Andy's place without hesitation.

I love welcoming people to the Bay Area and offering them great value places to stay while they work, study or explore. I'm an avid mountain biker, soccer player, beer drinker and music lover and find the Bay Area the perfect location to meet these needs. I love using airbnb t…
