We lucked upon this studio/casita/zimmer stay in Oakland and can highly recommend it. The unit is carefully designed with a comfortable queen bed, euro style duvet, reading lights on both sides of the bed, a workable kitchenette well stocked with teas, coffee, etc. For winter the floor has radient heat. There is a garden table complemented with the carefully landscaped with fruits, vegetables and flowers. A "green" home, there is even a flock of chickens with one polite rooster. College Ave is a short walk (but notice that there is a short part is that a steep hill.) The hosts were welcoming and friendly without being intrusive. This will be top of our list on the next visit to Oakland.

“Charming Mediterranean-style Rental”

I stayed here for 4 weeks for a research visit to the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. This studio is situated in Rockrige, which was really quiet despite being a minute's walk from College Avenue (the main drag). It was also very handy for Rockridge BART and the LBNL shuttle Rockridge Route, which leaves from the BART station.

The main room itself was a generous size with really fast Wi-Fi and a comfortable double bed. The shower room was excellent and nicely decorated. The kitchenette was on the small side but the main table served as a good extension to the kitchen area. (This would unlikely be a problem for short stays anyway.) One thing to note is that access is not step-free. The garden is beautiful.

In terms of amenities, there is a Safeway about 5 minutes' (slow) walk away at the junction of College and Claremont Avenues and there's a Trader Joe's near the BART station. There are plenty of restaurants along College Avenue.

Jeremy was quick to respond to questions and let me use the washer/dryer facilities, which was really convenient. He was even kind enough to pick me up from Rockridge station on the first day so I wouldn't have to drag my cases around, and he even left some supplies in the kitchen to get me started (including some of his home-made olive oil).

Overall, highly recommended!
