Enjoy the panoramic lake views from our newly-renovated penthouse unit! There is one bedroom with a queen bed, a newly renovated bathroom, a living room with an American Leather fold-out sofa, and a renovated kitchen. Relax with a glass of wine watching the sunset on the private balcony, walk the Lake to the Farmer's Market, and stay minutes away from all the new restaurants and bars that Oakland has to offer. Close proximity to Bart, casual carpool, or bus to SF.
It is a large, spacious penthouse in a two-unit duplex with stellar views in the heart of the Lake Merritt area. There is a queen size bed in the bedroom and an extremely comfortable American Leather sleeper sofa in the living room.
I recently remodeled this apartment from the studs up, so everything is brand new, and I love living here. The kitchen/dining/living room are all open-plan, and directly overlook Lake Merritt. There is a desk for working and wireless internet access.
You are a walk or quick Uber ride to everything that Oakland has to offer.
You will have access to the entire place -- I make my home available whenever I am not staying here, so you will have complete privacy.
Interaction with guests
As much as you prefer. I will be available by phone throughout your entire stay and myself or a family member can assist in person if the need arises.
Other things to note
Unfortunately, given the balcony, stairs, and non-child proofing, we do not allow children under age 5 to stay in the apartment given the safety concerns.
We kindly ask that you respect our neighbors, keep quiet hours between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m., and treat our home as you would treat your own.
We try to be flexible with check-in/check-out time whenever possible (depending on other bookings).
I am a PhD student in economics, studying at UC Berkeley. My partner, Jake, is a lawyer in the area. We enjoy traveling (who doesn't), snowboarding, dancing, and great food (and there is so much of it in the bay area)!
