A lovely huge room (renovated attic) with skylights, deck, sink, sitting area. Part of a nice house with 3 other young nice local residents in it. A huge garden below and sense of privacy above. Center of Temescal, Oakland's new favorite spot.
This is a large renovated attic space. It is up a flight of stairs and there is no door-but you are apart from the rest of the house. 5 skylights and a big window opening out onto a 'deck'...but you are at your own risk if you go out up there..there is no railing!
Bath is downstairs and is shared with one other person. Bed is queen size, fabulous natural latex mattress. There is a small rack to hang some clothes and a dresser. There is a sink and counter upstairs but the kitchen is downstairs.
Quite private. There is no door, but it is upstairs and rather separated from the rest of the house. So it really feels like your own floor and the others totally respect the privacy of the upstairs and do not go up (uninvited). I lived up there for a few years and still miss it. You can hear some voices downstairs if there are people there, but it is quiet household. The room is very light, with no shades on skylights, so if you need a very dark room to sleep, this isn't for you.
This is a great place to discover the bay area. Close to freeways, 24 and 580, a fifteen minute walk to either Rockridge or Macarthur BART, and then it's 15 min to downtown San Francisco. And a 15 minute walk to the casual commute where you can get a ride to the city during rush hour. Great if you are visiting family that doesn't have enough room, or you are wanting privacy.
The garden is huge and lovely and in the right months there is plenty of harvest for all and flowers all around. Plenty of nooks to relax in.
Kitchen use OK, but you MUST be conscientious about cleaning up after yourself, all the way.
Right down the street is the uber hip strip -- the neighborhood of Temescal. It has numerous great restaurants (Pizzaiolo, Barlata, Barkada, Bakesale Betty's, Mixing Bowl, Lanesplitter's, etc) and fun shopping.
Bike rental also available.
You have your own small deck (with unkosher entrance thru a window), and a sink in the room. Full access to living room, dining room, kitchen and garden.
