Detached, quiet, sunny one bedroom apartment above a two-car garage. Enjoy a clean and pretty living space with well-stocked kitchen, full bath, spacious bedroom and private deck.
The apartment is located over a detached, two-car garage behind the owner's house. It can be accessed by walking down the driveway and up a set of stairs on the left-hand side of the garage. There is a small private deck that leads to the front door.
The front door opens up to a room that includes the living space and kitchen. The kitchen is equipped with a full size oven, refrigerator, microwave, and dishwasher and is stocked with basic cooking and dining supplies. There is counter seating for two.
The bathroom is located off a small hallway that leads to the bedroom and includes a tub and shower with doors. The spacious bedroom contains an alcove for the bed and dresser as well as a small workspace.
We recommend the space for singles, couples, or small families. Sleeping options include one full size bed and one twin sleeper sofa.
Accès des voyageurs
In addition to the apartment space, guests are free to make use of the shared backyard which includes three mature fruit trees (apple, persimmon, and pear) as well as the patio and outdoor furniture.
There is also a shared laundry facility (8am-6pm) located in the basement of the main house, but accessible through an exterior cellar door.
Échanges avec les voyageurs
We prefer to be present when guests are staying at the apartment so that we can respond to any questions or concerns they might have. That said, we respect our guests' privacy (and value our own). Our goal is to make our guests feel welcome and well cared for without interfering with their stay.
Please be aware that a cat sometimes lives in this space (but not while guests are staying with us, of course!).
The apartment is professionally cleaned and all bed and bath linens laundered after each guest's stay.
As the apartment is located over our garage, it is possible to hear the garage door open from inside the apartment. However, the motor is extremely quiet and we try to keep opening and closing to a minimum.
For your safety, the apartment includes smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, a fire extinguisher, and a first aid kit (located under the kitchen sink).
We hope that our guests will relax and make themselves at home while also treating the space with care.
If there are any major accidents (e.g., broken window, red wine spill, clogged toilet), we prefer to be notified as soon as possible so that we can ensure that necessary repairs and clean up are handled quickly and thoroughly.
We do not allow pets and there is no smoking allowed on the property.
We prefer that guests do not wear shoes in the apartment.
For security, please close and lock all doors and windows anytime you leave the apartment.
Check in is 3:00PM and check out is 11:00AM. Please inquire if you need other arrangements.
We have lived in the East Bay for over 16 years and have been Oakland residents for the last nine. We love this city and are proud to call it home! My wife and I both work in public health and I also travel the country playing music in my Americana/Bluegrass band. We have a one and a half year old daughter who loves visiting the local Zoo and Fairyland on Lake Merritt. When we have time to travel, we often end up camping in Big Sur or heading to Mexico for surf and sun. We look forward to your visit!
