Need to let off some steam? The treadmill in the living room is fully-functioning-- in case you are the business traveler and didn't get to fit in that hike (trails upon trails are only a 5 minute drive from us) or run around the Lake today (Lake Merritt is about a 5 minute drive off 580).
If you are traveling with small children, we can provide a pack & play, high-chair and baby tub if you let us know beforehand. Tots can also play in the gated front yard. Whatever season you visit Oakland, the flat stays a good medium temp. We offer central heat for the winters and window cooling fans for summertime.
We respect the privacy of our guests and want you to feel this is your personal space to relax and enjoy the Bay Area. We will respond promptly to any texts
or emails before or during your stay.
Our home is a multi-unit dwelling. You share a common gated front yard, common access into the home, then you have a semi-private hallway leading to the locked front door to your own 2 bedroom, 2 full bathroom, full kitchen, living room, private patio.
Interaction with guests
We live on the property so we can be available to you when needed. Otherwise, we leave you guys alone as we are pretty busy ourselves!

**For folks NEW Airbnb**: This is our home, not a hotel. What does this mean?
