The neighbourhood

We are located in the Grand Lake district, a safe, convenient and beautiful area of Oakland. Many of our guests said they discovered a hidden convenient place with much lower cost and much better weather than the city.

Drive across the Bay Bridge (15 minutes with no traffic) then you are in downtown San Francisco.

From our house it's a 5-minutes walk to many places like:

Direct bus line to San Francisco. NX goes directly to the city. NL will stop in Oakland downtown before getting on the bridge.

Direct bus line (#12) to Berkeley and Oakland Downtown. It also stops at BART (subway) station and the Ferry Terminal to San Francisco.

Lake Merritt and the Rose Garden for your morning and evening strolls. Watch percussion artists playing African drums by the lake.

7-Eleven convenience store, Safeway supermarket.

Coin operated laundry, dry cleaning shop.

Starbucks, Peet's Coffee, wine bar.

Historical piano bar with nightly piano show and karaoke.

Best restaurants and bars of Oakland - Italian, Mediterranean, Spanish, French, Greek, Japanese, Korean, Ethiopian, Thai, Chinese, American,... you name it!

Oakland's historical landmark - Grand Lake Theater with daily movie shows and organ recital

In about 25 minutes you can walk to places like:

BART (subway) station. The trains go to San Francisco, SFO Airport, Oakland Airport, Fremont, Richmond, Dublin/Pleasanton and Hayward.
The route from our house to the subway station goes through a scenic lakeside trail.

Lovely place and very accommodating. Jie had a wonderful energy, and everything from check-in to check-out was very smooth. Safe neighborhood just a short drive from the Bart with several places to eat just next door.

I was only in Oakland for less than 48 hours for a work trip, but my communications with Jie were all very clear and everything went without a hitch. The house is very nice and the room very comfortable. If you want a "walkable" location (proximity to a decent variety of restaurants, pubs, coffee shops, the farmers' market, movie theater, book store), you can't find better.

Jie was courteous and kind and accommodating from start to finish. The room and bathroom were spotless, with adjoining amenities like a coffee maker and a fridge w/ice machine. I had booked it for my brother who was visiting for a few days, and he reported that it was very quiet, despite being in an area that can be bustling on weekend evenings. I really appreciated having a simple, comfortable, conveniently located place to help make my brother's visit go smoothly. Would highly recommend Jie as a hostess.
