Northgate - Waverly Condo Rental Photos and Description

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.

Large Studio, gorgeous accommodations! Close to BART

  • 4 of 5

Lissa was very attentive and accommodating! This is a very large studio with a beautiful and kitchen, large sitting room and lovely bedroom space. The have done a great job decorating and the high ceilings make it feel more "roomy." The apartment was very clean and well-maintained. The bed is comfortably soft and the sheets and towels are high quality. This is a great getaway space for one or two, and just a 15 min BART ride from downtown San Francisco. I would suggest bringing ear plugs or having a white noise app on your phone if you are sensitive to noise as the Taco Bell drive-through speaker is just across from the bedroom window. I will most definitely visit this property again; it was very comfortable to live in for a week.

Perfect apartment to explore East Bay and San Francisco

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was great! It was very clean and comfortable and had all the amenities of home and then some. The location was close to BART and Oakland airport. This apartment worked perfectly for our long weekend get away and I would recommend it to anyone. Thank you.

Very nice, modern studio apartment had everything I needed for an uneventful business trip.

  • 5 of 5

I consult regularly in downtown Oakland and usually stay in hotels, however with a big conference in town I turned to VRBO and found this gem of a studio in a convienent location. The apartment was well equipped to meet all my needs. I had a great three night stay. The owner Sheila was well prepared and made everything very easy with great instructions.

Hidden Gem

  • 4 of 5

From the exterior you would not know that such a nice loft exists in this space. It was a sweet space that benefited from several updates. We felt safe and had a nice time throughout our 3-night stay. I slept very well! There are only two things I wish we'd had: a full length mirror and a few more towels (we were only given two for two people for three nights). Other than that, we could not have asked for anything else.

Also, I'd hoped to get a package delivered on the day we arrived, but because I wasn't provided with the mailing address, and our main contact took almost a week to get back to me, I was unable to receive the business cards I'd ordered for the event I was attending. Everything turned out just fine (thankfully the printing company gave me a full refund with no questions asked). Once we got there I saw we were given two other in-town contacts. That was helpful, but the information came a little late. Live and learn!

Very pleased overall.

  • 4 of 5

From the outside appearance to be honest was a little questionable. However to my pleasant surprise we walked up to a very nice loft. It was neat, clean and very functional as our home base during our Northern California visit. We had everything we needed and despite other reviews, noise from the property next door was non existent. Easy access to the BART station. Onsite contact was very welcoming. Just remember if you have a rental car to keep up on the side changes for the on street parking
