About this listing
Our sweet, comfortable two bedroom house, offers a quiet retreat in the Bay Area. It comfortably fits four, located on a tree lined street in the Oakland Hills. Enjoy the deck, grilling, views of the city, and quick drives to Berkeley and San Fran.
This is a cozy house in Maxwell Park (a hidden gem of a neighborhood in Oakland), that will comfortably fit four. We have a light-filled kitchen, that opens right onto a great deck with a grill. You can watch the sunset behind Mt. Tam from the deck each night. There are two bedrooms, with one queen bed and one single with a trundle bed, and a bathroom with a Cast iron tub. The yard below has an in-progress garden, and chickens.
You will have access to the whole house. Come straight in the front-door and it's all yours.

Maxwell Park is a quaint residential neighborhood, with California style homes and gorgeous Bay Area gardens. This is a great neighborhood to take walks in. Everyone says hello. We are a 7 minute drive to BART, and a 2-minute drive to get on Freeway 580 (which will take you to Berkeley or SF).
We have a driveway and easy street parking. BART is a 7 minute drive away. Fruitvale BART is the closest to our house. It's 2 stops from the Oakland Airport, and about an hour ride to the San Francisco Airport. There are also nearby buses for local public transport.
I am an educator in the Bay Area. My partner is an educator and artist here too. We have a new baby boy, and a well-behaved dog named Ty. We spend our time outdoors hiking, swimming, grilling and travelling when we can. We love our little home in the Maxwell Park neighborhood of Oakland. You will too!
