About this listing

Our private and well appointed apartment enjoys a wonderful view and has dedicated on street parking. It is located on the lower level of our Mediterranean styled home, with private separate entry (exterior patio and laundry. It used exclusively by guests and contains no owner belongings, set up similar to a very nice hotel. We recently upgraded the wireless service so it has an excellent connection, also has a new Danish queen sofa bed which is easy to unfold and extremely comfortable.

The space

The apartment is located on the lower level of an Architect's beautiful Mediterranean styled home, but has complete privacy with a separate entry and patio. The decor is warm, modern, and welcoming. The windows overlook a sea of California oak and bay trees to an amazing view of the new Bay Bridge tower with the Golden Gate Bridge beyond.

The apartment can sleep up to four guests, with a new queen-sized bed in the bedroom plus a new Danish design queen-sized sofa bed in the living room. This sofa-bed unfolds from the top and there is no need to remove cushions, and it is very comfortable, not your ordinary sofa-bed! There are hardwood floors and tasteful furnishings throughout.

The kitchen is fully equipped with granite counter tops, dishwasher, gas oven and cooktop, microwave and large refrigerator. The large elegant bathroom sports a heated marble floor, marble counter, and bathtub with overhead shower. There is a large closet and plenty of dresser drawers for your belongings. The apartment is naturally cool in summer, and has radiant heated floors for cool days in the winter. Your own laundry room with full sized washer and dryer is available for your exclusive use.

But the best part is the view...you can watch the sunrise illuminate downtown Oakland and San Francisco, enjoy ever changing sunsets, or perhaps witness a carpet of fog crowned by a clear blue sky. You will delight in the ever-changing view!

The apartment is completely private and separate from the main home. You have access to your own laundry room and storage (located downstairs below unit) featuring a full sized washer and dryer.

We are often not home, but love to meet our guests whenever possible.

Oakland is centrally located in the Bay area and enjoys great sunny weather year round. Our neighborhood is called Oakmore Highlands and overlooks Dimond Canyon Park, which features a wonderful hiking trail. It's a very nice walking street, with friendly neighbors. Also very popular with bicycle riders.

Transportation and parking are very convenient. There is ample on-street free parking on this quiet street with only one immediate neighbor. Freeway access is very quick and easy via highway Highway 13 and I-580. San Francisco is about 20 minutes away, or a convenient commute via BART from its nearby Rockridge Station. We are very near the University of California at Berkeley campus (17 12 min.), and major highways (phone number hidden) and 880, which can whisk you to the vibrant galleries of Sausalito (40 minutes), San Jose (50 minutes), or Santa Cruz (90 minutes). If you are up for a day-long outing, don't miss the grand Muir Woods, wine tours in Napa, or mud baths in Calistoga. Quick access to sunshine on foggy days via the Caldecott Tunnel to points east - Orinda, Lafayette, Walnut Creek, and Lake Tahoe (~3 1/2 hours.)

If you need anything please contact us. We take great pride in our property - we want to hear about anything which is not to your satisfaction or is not working properly.

Marianne's place met our needs perfectly! My husband, 15 yr old daughter and I stayed at Marianne's place for 6 nights with the intent to explore multiple locations in the SF Area as well as a few other locations within 1 - 1 1/2 hours of SF. We didn't arrive to the private apartment until close to midnight on our first night there however with prior communication Marianne ensured we were easily able to access our home for the week without any problems. Marianne's place gave us just the space we needed considering we planned on being out and about quite a bit. The private apartment is close to grocery stores and several restaurants (even a couple restaurants that will deliver). Marianne has a wonderful kitchen equipped with cookware, utensils, dishes, etc.

Immaculate space with a terrific view over woods and out to the bay bridge. Wonderful location with easy access to Berkley, Oakland and San Francisco. There is a clean and fully equipped kitchen Our hosts were helpful and accessible as well as respecting our privacy. Excellent internet Wifi as well as the most complete cable TV we've had in any other Air BnB. For older guests, there are steep stairs to the unit, so you must be able to negotiate stairs.

Lovely place and beautiful neighbourhood. Nicely organized and well equipped. Bathroom was great with a heated floor. Laundry facilities were convenient. Comfy bed with a soft topper. Transportation into SF was a little complicated early in the day unless you really do your research. Groceries and restaurants nearby (we found a great Mexican 5 mins away).
