Private and detached cottage in great area. Next door to a 100 year old historic landmark. Lots of fun in walking distance. Great for single or couple. Filled with art. Queen bed, stove, oven, microwave, full bathroom (shower, no tub). Easy parking.

In response to guest requests, I've recently added an internet modem directly inside the cottage, so Wi-fi access is exceptional!

De ruimte
This is a completely private and detached cottage, sharing the grounds with a 100 year old historic landmark (of "Major Importance" in Oakland's registry). This studio is filled with lots of art and everything a single or couple could need. Queen bed, stove, oven, microwave, toaster, complete bathroom (shower but no bathtub).

Abundant parking curbside at the house is always available.

This is one of the safest and most walkable area of all Oakland (right on the border of Piedmont), and also has very easy access to buses and Bart to SF, Berkeley, and the entire Bay Area.

5 minute walk (see Guidebook) to Trader Joes, Walgreens, several women's boutiques ranging from upscale to consignment, two toy stores and many great restaurants. If you're feeling like something fast, there's Chipotle, Noahs Bagels, two ice cream / frozen yogurt places, and four pizza places in walking distance (from NY-style by the slice, to Chicago deep-dish, to uber-Gourmet). For coffee, we have both Starbucks and Peets.

5 minute walk to several beautiful parks, playgrounds, gyms and public tennis courts (see Guidebook).

A little further walk to Grand brings you to another dozen shops and restaurants, including the very popular and hip Boot & Shoe, where celebrities are often seen (but not bothered - people tend to be understated around here).

The striking and historic Grand Lake movie theater, with the latest films in 3D and otherwise, is also just a 5 minute walk.

It's two miles - either a pleasant lakeside walk or a 5 minute drive - to some of the best nightlife in the Bay Area, including the Fox and Paramount Theaters, with many of the hottest bands and speakers (ranging from Condoleeza Rice to Paul Krugman) anywhere.

Tons of public transit. AC Transit Bus #26 to Bart and elsewhere picks up and drops off on our block.

As shown in photos, there are more than a dozen steps up to the property. To me and all the guests so far, walking them feels Great. However, a few elderly people have inquired about the space and I've thought it a bad idea. Please consider if steps are a problem for you.

Cheers!
EJ

Andere dingen waar je op moet letten
As stated, guests have access to wifi. Please note that only the internet provider (Comcast in this case) can ensure that wifi will be up all the time. If it goes down, I will seek to remedy the issue immediately, which may require Comcast's assistance. How quickly they resolve the problem can vary but could be several days. If wifi is not operating well in your unit (download speeds less than 5 mbps), I will refund $5 per day. If wifi speed and access is imperative to you, I will consider arranging for your own modem installation in your unit before your stay. To do this, I will pass through whatever costs and add $50 fee for my time. Unfortunately, dealing with Comcast can take a whole day, so this $50 is really a great deal. Pardon the long discussion. I provide it only to avoid misunderstandings and ensure satisfied guests. :)

The shower takes a few minutes to get warm. Please be ok with that if you stay here.

Oakland, Californië, Verenigde Staten

This is just plain a fantastic neighborhood. It has everything you could want, most of it within walking distance, and all within two miles. Great restaurants, nightlife, shops, dog parks, kid parks, live concerts and plenty more. Phenomenal hiking and mountain biking five miles away at Joaquin Miller park. Still more at Redwood Regional Park, just a little further away.

A Guidebook I prepared is found at the bottom of this page: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/1232718

I've spent most of my life between the Bay Area, Santa Monica (a beach city in L.A. County) and New York City. I like art and the properties are quite filled with it. I'm active in the Bay Area community, both as a youth soccer coach, and as a Board Member of Artpoint, which is a young adult organization supporting the Museums of San Francisco, the DeYoung and Legion of Honor. I've traveled a lot, from 10 in a room hostels to luxury, and understand what makes a nice place to stay. I'll do everything possible to help you enjoy your time here, and welcome your requests. Thank you, EJ Blumberg
