I am from Thailand and my husband grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area. I am a professional Thai cook and if you would like a private dinner sometime, I would be happy to provide a unique and original meal. We have a 22 month boy and no pets.

This house is located in one of the most attractive, safe, and fun neighborhoods in the East Bay. Virtually everything you would like to do (jogging, shopping, banking, hanging out) is within a short walk.

My husband grew up in Oakland, is a Cal graduate, and is familiar with the area and the state. He is a great resource in planning your excursions. The back patio is a wonderful place to hangout and have a BBQ.

Perfection

  • 5 of 5
When I arrived, I was so happy that the studio was even better than I had anticipated. It was spacious, clean, and well equipped. We had 2 adults and a toddler and the entire stay was perfect. Steve and Na were the most generous hosts, providing things that we had forgotten, always ready to help or provide recommendations, and even made us dinner. We felt like a part of their family. My only regret was not being able to spend more time with them and get to know them better. We were able to eat "in" when we wanted, do laundry, and even had a dinner party for friends on the back patio.
My only 2 tidbits that may help, I might rent a car next time. We walked everywhere and loved it, but if you don't want to walk more than 15-30 minutes to get around easily, you might want to rent a car. Taxi's are available but it might be more economical to just rent a car if you plan on doing lots of sight seeing.
Also, again, it didn't bother me at all, but you can hear a bit of foot traffic between the main floor and the studio. I had a toddler who gets up early, so this was of no concern to me but if you sleep lightly, or want to sleep late, you may want to use earplugs. Thank you so much, Na and Steve. We hope to return!

Lakeshore basement space...nice!

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful roomy basement space! My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights. Steve and Na were so kind and made us feel SO welcome! We were in Oakland visiting our daughter and this place is well located just off Lakeshore...lots of fun walking to all the super shops and restaurants. It was great to be able to use washer/dryer, and they were so kind to offer dinner, coffee and even ride to train! Many thanks!!

Great spot!

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I recently stayed here while visiting San Francisco. The studio is great!! We were so happy with it. Everything as advertised! Turned out so nice. It's also near some cool eateries. The owners are incredibly hospitable. We did not rent a car but got around fine using the Bart station on 19th (about a mile and a half away from studio) there is also a ferry you can take to SF which is at Jack London Square. I'd say taxis are nicer than the bus much more convenient and not too much more in price. With or without a rental car it's a sweet spot. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a studio in Oakland.

Beautiful house, great location!

  • 5 of 5
This house is much bigger than it sounds in the listing. There is another bed in the basement downstairs that wasn't on the listing either. We enjoyed our stay and loved the neighborhood. Trader Joe's is within walking distance, as well as lots of shops and restaurants.
