Condo, Studio + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)
This recently remodeled open concept loft is a ten minute walk to the 19 St BART, a few blocks from Lake Merritt, a Whole Foods market and downtown Oakland. Coffee shops, restaurants, art galleries, and dance studio spaces dot the immediate neighborhood.
The architectural appointments of this cityscape studio merge past and future, with oak floors, exposed brick walls, glass brick room dividers, stainless steel appliances, and granite counter tops. The view from the living area is of an enclosed patio roof garden and the condo space includes a full size, fully equipped kitchen, separate eating area, and bathroom with tile shower. A floor to ceiling curtain may be used to divide the space into two semi-private sleeping areas. One contains a new queen-sized bed, the other a double-sized convertible sofa bed.

Really cute loft with an ideal location near BART.
The loft was clean, the bed was comfortable and the key less access was really nice. The closeness to BART was great and I had one of the best meals of my life at a restaurant called HOPSCOTCH only 0.3 miles away. We had a rental car and street parking was interesting in that there is street cleaning daily so you need to move your car to the opposite side of the street each day but the owner was nice enough to give us a heads up about this and the only day finding parking was a little hard was Friday night which is to be expected. There is a homeless village down the street so the homeless population is usually on the street by the loft but this seems pretty common in all the areas of Oakland we walked through. We kept our valuables out of sight and car locked and had no issues whatsoever. Great location, hot water, clean, comfy bed, and great communication on what to expect from owner, could not have asked for anything more!
comfort and convinience
We enjoyed staying in this comfy apartment. My friend and I friends and didn't feel crowded as one of us stayed on the foldout couch and the other in the bed. There was plenty of space to relax together or separate. The restaurants are great in the area. The touch pad entry was an easy way to get in and out without having to bother with a key. We had everything we needed with the well-planned kitchen. With the weather variance during our stay we needed to use both the heat (briefly on a rainy day) and the a/c. Both worked fine. Good hot shower. Nice quality sheets. The built in kitchen table was charming and comfy. The whole lay-out of the apartment is well planned. We really appreciated the table that can open up for both of us to work on laptops - or fold up to save space.
The street parking was a challenge for me as an out of towner. I learned the hard way that when in the 4 hour parking on the other side of the street, you cannot just move places on the same side of the street. I got a ticket. But that is not the host's problem.
The communication with Sheila and the agency was good and effective.
Convenient Location and Nicely Finish Flat
This is a nicely finished flat. It was comfortable for our family of three people. The neighborhood is a mix of new buildings and graffitied buildings converted to paid parking lots. We walked to both the BART and the Whole Foods nearby without any problems. It is a very convenient location for access to the BART and visiting San Francisco.
Comfortable, Well-Appointed Apartment
My brother and sister-in-law stayed 10 days during their visit from France. I live on Lake Merrittt and the location was an easy walk to my place, to BART, and the many stores, restaurants and entertainment nearby.
The apartment was very comfortable and had everything needed for a stay away from home. While located in an very urban environment, it is safe, if not perfectly free of street noise.
The owner was kind enough to extend the original booking of one week by 3 days. They planned to stay with us for a few days but were so comfortable that we all decided it was better not to change a good thing! My family loved the location and would love to stay again for their next visit.
The neighbors and neighborhood is lovely to start! The place itself is so warm and cozy! The breakfast nook was too cute and very much appreciated! The place was exactly what I was hoping for and more! The two heaters in the bathroom are perfection for this time of the year in the Bay Area and made my mornings dreamy! Thank you so much!!
Cozy and weir equipped
Although the immediate neighborhood is a bit gritty, the apartment itself is comfortable and secure.
