Perfect location for travellers, business travel, and students, our independent studio is across the street from Lake Merritt, and its running path. A 12 minute walk to BART, a 3 min walk to grocery stores, restaurants, and laundry, and 5 bus lines run within one block. A great landing pad for any Bay Area adventures. Families and students welcome!
This is a large ground floor studio across the street from Lake Merritt. It comfortably sleeps 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 young children with 2 single trundle beds or a king size bed, and one double air mattress. The large main room (over 240 square feet) has wood parquet floors, a trundle bed (2 separate mattresses or a king size mattress), a small writing desk (and a large well lit kitchen table), and a separate seating area. The kitchen is brightly colored, sunny, and fully equipped with a gas stove, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, pots, blender, and cooking staples (salt, oils, coffee and tea, full spice collection. The large table seats 4. The bathroom has a claw-foot tub, good water pressure for showers, and nice natural light. The layout of the studio, with a closing door between the kitchen and main room, and a hallway separating the bathroom, makes it easy for two or more to share this studio without feeling crowded.
The apartment is completely independent.
Interaction with guests
We live in a neighboring apartment and will check you in when you arrive. We will be happy to give you any touring advice about Oakland, San Francisco, or the Bay Area, should you wish, or help solve any problems if they arise. We also understand many travelers have a very independent agenda, and prefer privacy, and we respect that also.
Other things to note
Parking is free on the street, and we post a schedule for street cleaning times. This apartment is great for those who love vibrant city locations, but those needing extra quiet surroundings may not find this the best fit as there is daytime urban noise.
No smoking in the building.
