My spacious & sunny studio apartment is centrally located between downtown and Temescal, and just blocks from BART. Perfect for exploring San Francisco and amazing Oakland bars and restaurants, or enjoy my fully stocked kitchen for relaxing nights in.
This is a wonderful apartment that has always made me happy to be home. Its so close to the hustle and bustle, but a great retreat when you need to relax and be alone. Its great for people who need to work remotely, first time visitors to the Bay Area, and whatever else may bring you to lovely, diverse, Oakland.
Mac Arthur BART station is under a 10 minute walk away, making trips to SF a breeze.
The other tenants are mellow and everything you need is close by: Walgreens right across the street, a BBQ and bakery next door, whole foods and other markets close by, and amazing nightlife all around.
I try and keep the space fully stocked. There is a gas stove and the fridge has a decent amount of condiments. There's all the basics for cooking. Feel free to use whatever is there.
The bathroom has both bath tub and shower, and all the basics: clean towels, soap, shampoo, conditioner, hairdryer, nail polish remover, cotton swabs, etc.
Again- use whatever you need to while you're there!
Although my building is next to a freeway overpass, some people say the noise isn't very noticeable, and is totally worth the convenient and cozy location. I highly encourage you to read my reviews where people mention this, and decide if my place is right for you. For light sleepers, I provide earplugs on the bedside table! This is overall a very quiet building.
Accès des voyageurs
There's inexpensive on site laundry that takes quarters, and a common area out back with lots of seating and plants. The kitchen is big and great to cook in. Feel free to use or eat anything in the kitchen.
Parking: If you have a car, there is always plenty of free street parking. (Just make sure to read the street signs for no parking times-even with this, parking is always available outside building within one block)
Make sure to not leave valuables in your car.
Getting to SF is just a short BART ride away- 17 minutes to Embarcadero station.

I'd be happy to recommend nearby bars and restaurants and try to answer any other questions you may have. If you're new to Oakland, I can easily share my love of it, and give you pointers for a fulfilling stay! Just ask!
My bed is amazingly comfortable. Although it IS a bit higher than most. I have a little step stool for those that are on the short side, so feel free to contact me if you think this may be a problem for you in any way, and i can try to accommodate you!

There is no smoking in the apartment, but smoking in the back patio is fine. It is a quiet building but sound travels easily in the hallway, so please talk quietly when coming or going. Parties or excessive loud noise, especially at night, is a no-no. Basically, Treat my apartment as you would treat your own home.
Thanks and have fun!!
