This remodeled Victorian home is close to Lake Merritt, Bart, boutiques, and restaurants. My place is perfect for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers. If you just need a convenient place to stay for the night or you want to enjoy the scenery and amenities that Oakland has to offer, you'll love it here. :)

The space

The bedroom is perfect for 1-2 people. You are provided a queen bed and a small desk. An iron, space heater, towels, and other amenities are provided for your convenience. There is a full bathroom and kitchen available for use. Wifi is also provided.

Guest access

There is a large black gate, which requires a provided key for entry, in front of the large house. My apartment is on the right side of the building with the hanging plants and stumps of wood. Parking is easy to find and free on the street.

Interaction with guests

I’m down to chat or not chat, completely up to you.

Other things to note

I also have a dog, Nasus, who is a young rescue; he is very shy, sweet, and well-trained. He usually keeps to himself or me around strangers.

The dogs are very friendly and well behaved! Very clean , Nic a very nice host. However, we need coffee in the morning, a danish , fruit! Parking was ok, very tight narrow street.
Nic User ProfileNic is a superhost.
Response from Nic:
I enjoyed your stay very much, but I am disappointed that you only rated me 4 stars out of 5 after telling me that my hospitality was outstanding. My listing is very affordable and in the listing details, I do not say that I provide breakfast. There are multiple cafes a couple blocks away for coffee as I told you. If you want a continental breakfast in the future, I suggest asking the host these questions before booking and/or spending more money on a hotel or an airbnb that specifies that they provide breakfast.

Nic's place was wonderful. The bedroom was very clean and the bed was comfortable. We arrived late at night and Nic was very accommodating. The only little issue we had was with parking, but that's probably because we showed up late, and we really only had to park a couple blocks away. I would definitely recommend Nic's place to anyone!
