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!
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!
