Private guesthouse located in the Oakland Hills with stunning views of the bay. We recognize the importance of privacy, this guesthouse will allow you to have everything you need all while never having to be bothered. The sunset views can be taken in from your bed or the deck. There is a bus stop about 150 yards away if you need, the airport is about a 7 minute ride away, rail (BART) is about 5 minutes and the house is near a freeway for quick access to everywhere in the Bay Area.

The space
This cozy guesthouse is roughly 250 square feet and features a panoramic view of the entire bay area. The garden, with its fenced off private area, is meant to give the feeling of an escape, privacy is important for us. You can see San Francisco in the distance and watch the sun set from your bed and the Oakland Coliseum complex is in the same view so if you want to go watch a Warriors/Raiders/A's game its a straight shot. The Deck is roughly 900 square feet and features infinite views of the bay area.

Guest access
There is parking in the front of the home, there is a private side-entrance, and there is a private, fenced, garden area leading into the house.

Other things to note
THINGS TO NOTE

We want all our guests to be as happy as possible with their decision to book our place. We've found that the biggest concern most guests have is arriving to find things are not what they expected. In an effort to show how much we care about our guests not feeling like they were misled we've kept a running list of things that may not be completely clear from the pictures/listing.

BEDS - The house features a queen bed and a couch. The couch does NOT fold out, if you are making a reservation for three and are expecting a foldout please be aware of this before booking. AIRBNB considers a couch a bed for some reason and some people disagree. If you do not believe a couch is a bed then please be aware of this.

SQUARE FOOTAGE - Please take a look at the floor-plan provided. We do our absolute best to be as transparent as possible about the size of the space. The floor-plan is to scale and accurate. The room is 250 square feet. The Deck is massive.

Shower - The shower is a stall shower. It is two feet by two feet roughly so it is small.

Heat/Cold/Climate/Noise - The room has a large space fan, a ceiling fan, and a smaller fan on the bed. Two windows open outwards if needed. The room has an electric fireplace that functions as a heater and a heat dish if needed when it gets really cold.

Never know what to put here, average 33 year old guy that likes to travel, wants to be comfortable, but doesn't like to overpay.
During your stay
Ideally none, however we are on the property if something should be needed. When we use AIRBNB in our travels we prefer to never run into the owners so we like to extend the same courtesy.
