This home is in North Oakland, close to Emeryville. The home has 1 bedroom, a den with a comfy couch and an office with a double size pullout. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you would need to cook and enjoy an elaborate meal! It's centrally located, close to Berkeley, Emeryville and downtown Oakland. This house is a diamond in the rough. What you sacrifice for urban grit, you get paid off with proximity to all bay area amenities but not for SF prices!

The space

This is the home that we live in full time, but we rent it out when we're away on weekends and vacation. We've worked hard to make our home cozy and inviting. However, it's a big deal to us that we're letting people we don't know stay in our space. If you're interested in booking, please message me explaining where you're from, who is staying, and why you're coming to the area. We hope that you'll enjoy it!

*Guests will have access to the entire upstairs part of the house. The living quarters are spacious, airy and full of light.
*The kitchen is large and fully equipped to prepare any kind of meal. Feel free to use anything you find!
*Our back patio is lovely for grilling or just sitting in the sunshine with a book.
*Both bathrooms are accessible, as are all three rooms.
*While only one room has a queen sized bedroom, the den has a very comfortable couch, and the office has an IKEA couch that turns into a double bed.

Guest access

The downstairs is a basement for storage, and guests will not have access to it.

Interaction with guests

Available by phone and email at all times.

Had a fantastic stay here in Oakland. Check In was super simple. Communication was great. We really enjoyed the record player and the free wine and chocolates they left for us. The place was very clean and homey. They had all the necessities in the bathrooms. The TV was easy to use and there was great privacy since they had all their windows blinded. House was super cute, there was always a parking spot nearby. We were super happy to have this place to come home to after our adventures in Berkeley and San Francisco. Thanks Yael!

Yael and Alex place was fantastic. They were super helpful and provided us with useful informations and everything we needed to feel just like home. San Francisco was easy to access and supermarkets and daily stuff was close to reach.

Great place and location. Yael's house was clean, and had everything we needed. We only spent one night, but it was the perfect location to avoid the high SF hotel prices just a few miles from there. The place was spacious, comfortable, and really quite. 100% recommended, and would definitely stay there again. Thanks, Yael!

This house was lovely! It was a very comfortable stay. The key drop system was easy to use and BART was conveniently located about 15 minutes away by foot, so we could get to San Francisco easily. While the house itself was beautiful and felt safe, the neighborhood seemed a little marginal after dark. Still, it was a very pleasant stay!

Great place, spacious, roomy and clean. Super convenient key drop and check in/out. Very communicative, responsive hosts and all around great experience. We were in town for a birthday dinner so didn't spend much time in the space or in the exact neighborhood but seemed great. Would definitely come back again, we love Oakland.
