Our cozy home is welcoming to all, and ideal for a couple or small family, with a master bedroom and den with a double futon. A crib is available upon request. Hardwood floors, great natural light, fully equipped kitchen, friendly neighbors. 20 min walk to Lake Merritt.

The space

The house is ideal for a couple or small family because the second room is set up for our 3 year old daughter, with a full/double futorn that works for kids and/or adults. Also, a crib, lots of kids books, and toys available upon request.

The open floor plan between the kitchen, dining area, and living room make it especially good for cooking together and just hanging out.

The natural lighting is a bonus, especially in the afternoons with a west facing elevated orientation.

The house is a duplex; the other unit is long term rental currently occupied by a very friendly renter. Each unit has an independent entry.

Guest access

Ample free parking on the street.

Other things to note

We own a dog - he will not be there when it is rented (of course!) and we keep a very clean home, however it may not be the best option for someone allergic to dogs.

Lovely home. Perfect set up for families. They even set up a portable crib, high chair & toys when they knew our 1 year old grand daughter was coming. Would love to rent again

Shannah was a welcoming host that made was quick to respond to requests and made her home extra comfortable for our family. Our toddler was in heaven playing with the toys provided. The black out curtains were great too-total darkness. Thank you for your house manual. We loved the suggest restaurants in the area. We really appreciated the thoughtful warming gifts to get us settled- like coffee and chocolate! It was a wonderful sanctuary for us.

The apartment was just as described. Very clean and very comfortable. The owner provided a touch of home with little amenities, personal notes, and advice. She was super easy to communicate with and flexible with me from afar. The only downside was the need for a car to drive to the grocery stores and tourist spots that are over a mile away. I'm sure more resourceful travelers than us could walk and find reliable transit nearby.

Shannah made us feel completely welcome in her home! We loved our stay in her cozy house--it was the perfect size and super family friendly for our small family! Shannah took the time to do the small things that made it feel like our own home away from home--providing us with a welcome bottle of wine, delicious blue bottle coffee and asking what our young son might need to make him feel comfortable and at ease (including using the crib, high chair, books and toys). We will definitely be back!

Very nice accomodation. Perfect for a small family with 3-4 people, because the the bathroom is only accessable over one bedroom. The whole house was very clean and cosy. The neigbourhood looked nice and it was very good to get to San Francisco or the upper Bay Area by car. Shannon was very helpful and communicative and very sympatic :-) We can recommend it :-)

The place and the area was very nice. Shannah take very well care of us and help us with a lot of thinks. It was beautiful to stay at her house. The kitchen has all that you need to make nice meals. Wifi was working very well. The house has all to stay in family especial with small kids. The house is very near to Ikea, Supermarket Lucky and the Lake Merrit. Very very nice space to take rest and holidays. Thank you so much Shannah, hope to see you again soon.

After 10 years living in South America, my husband and I moved to Oakland for work in 2013. As I am originally from the Bay Area, I am absolutely LOVING being back! I really enjoy riding my bike everywhere I go, the people in Oakland are super interesting and welcoming, and I am enjoying reconnecting with my close friends and family. I have enjoyed meeting new people and learning about their Oakland lives. People. Movement. Sun. The Bay Area. Those are some of my favorite things!
