We live in a loft style condo on a quiet street in West Oakland. We are artists who have our studio on the ground floor and we live in the loft above it. Guests stay in our "gallery" room on the ground floor, in a room adjacent to our art studio. The room has a queen sized bed, with a couch and seating area as well. There is a full bathroom with a washer/dryer that is for our guests private use just across the hall.
Private room on ground floor of loft style condo. The room is adjacent to our art studio, which we access through external doors when having guests, so that guests have total privacy. Bed is a queen size. Full private bath . The closets are full of art supplies, but we do have a portable clothes rack for hanging stuff up. In addition to the bed, there is a seating area with a couch and two chairs, so plenty of room to relax in a private space.

Échanges avec les voyageurs
We are friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgeable about Oakland/ SF Bay Area and would be happy to loan maps and offer advice about things to do, places to see, restaurants, bars, etc... We are also happy to share a cup of coffee in the morning, or a glass of wine in the evening. Or, we can leave you entirely alone, it is up to you how much interaction you want.
We are 2 blocks from the West Oakland BART station (our area's rapid transit) 1 stop from San Francisco and close to Oakland's Uptown, Downtown, Jack London Square and Lake Merritt districts.
No smoking and no pets allowed. We cannot accommodate more than two guests. We ask that guests be quiet entering and exiting the courtyard, so as not to disturb our neighbors. Our check-in time is flexible, but we ask you to let us know approximate arrival time as soon as possible so we can make sure to be here. Our check-out time is noon, but we are open to making exceptions to that rule.
