Very strategic central location - close to anywhere in the Bay area - Berkeley, Oakland, San Francisco, Wine country ( Napa, Sonoma,etc.).
Emeryville is a local favorite and just across the BAY BRIDGE from San Francisco.
*** Please note: our location is NOT a touristy spot, although we have lovely local bars, cafes and restaurants with a great food within walking distance.
This is a fantastic location to get away from the hustle and bustle of San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley, yet close enough to reach them within 5-30 min by car.
It's ideal for business travelers since we are super close to all the booming businesses Emeryville has to offer.
Emeryville is rather a local favorite creative place, tech heaven and an artist underground - home to award winning animation studio Pixar, small local businesses ( TubeMogul, Gracenote, LeapFrog, JambaJuice, Tanium,Kodak Gallery, Tethys bio-science, ART, Pete's coffee, Clift bar), authentic food scene ( Public Market, Ike's famous joint, Town house, Summer Summer Thai) and small boutiques ( Bay street shopping plaza)
This location is for you, if you prefer quite, residential and underground culture over being right in the middle of city life, which translates in:
~ easy and FREE parking
~ FREE shuttle that takes you to BART or Berkeley Bowl
~ QUIET residential experience
~ urban OASIS feeling
~ FRIENDLY neighbors
~ LOCAL cafes and bars still in walking distanc
Just to align expectations: If you think we are not worthy 5 stars on location, please book somewhere else, where you'd rather be.
We cannot pick up our house and move it right next to Golden Gate Bridge, you see....
We take great pride in our hospitality and we absolutely love our neighborhood and location.
It's rather disheartening to get 3 or 4 stars on location, where airbnb system keep bugging us to improve this?! THANK YOU! ***

•WEATHER ADVISORY for San Francisco:
Mark Twain famously said, “The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco." Seasons in San Francisco don't necessarily follow universal trends. The city can often feel quite chilly, although the temperature rarely drops below freezing. Even when summer arrives, residents know not to leave the house in short sleeves until late summer—that's when San Francisco enjoys its warmest weather.
Temperatures remain moderate year round: 51 - 65°F (10.5 - 18.3 °C).
Late summer and fall are the most popular times to visit the city: 68 - 70°F (20 - 21°C). The period of warm weather is known as “Indian Summer," an annual miracle that San Franciscans look forward to all year long. The weather brings favorite festivals and events along with it.
Summers generally range from 53 - 69°F (11.6 - 20.5 °C). Summer days often begin with fog which usually burns off by the afternoon. It rarely rains during summer months.
Winters are mild. They are somewhat wet, but not unbearable: 46 - 48°F ( 7.7 - 8.8 °C).
No matter the season, it is always SMART to DRESS in LAYERS and be prepared for sudden weather changes when in San Francisco Bay Area.
