This is a separate, downstairs studio apartment attached to our home in the residential Glenview neighborhood of Oakland, overlooking wooded views of Sausal Creek and within walking distance of several shops, restaurants, and a neighborhood park.
Our Sausal Creek studio is generally available for weekend rental, except where otherwise indicated on the calendar.
Check in is 4:00 pm the day of your arrival. Check out is noon.
The studio unit has its own private entrance and is located under the main house. You will be able to let yourself in no matter what time of day or night you arrive, as there is a lockbox outside the door to the unit with a key to the room in it.
WARNING: We have two small kids and sound does travel up and down, so it will not be completely silent. From 8pm to 7am, however, the kids are asleep, so we are able to offer quiet hours during that time. We hope that you can also respect quiet hours during this time.
There is no TV!
However, there is a very comfortable queen size bed with a down comforter and a fold-out futon couch that offers a surprisingly comfortable full-sized bed option. The unit was very recently partially remodeled with new bamboo floors.
You will have your own private bathroom with shower. The shower is an enclosed bath tub. There is a hand rail and a sturdy step to help guests exit the shower, but guests with mobility issues should know that the shower/bath and the long staircase that leads to the unit might be a concern.
You will have a kitchenette, including microwave, fridge, sink, and a washer/dryer for clothes. There is no toaster oven, nor regular stove or oven, so meal prep is limited to keeping things cool in the fridge and heating them up in the microwave.
Other amenities include high speed wireless internet for your laptop, a coffee press, an assortment of tea & coffee, a gas heater, a washer/dryer, an iron and ironing board, and a hair dryer.
You will have access to a large deck with peaceful views of the adjacent green space, Sausal Creek. You will have access to miles of hiking trails from your front door.
MORE ABOUT US:
We are a professional family of four who will likely be home in the main part of the house during your stay but you may not see us as you have a separate entrance and your own private space.
We are optimally seeking respectful, quiet guests who will appreciate the a clean, comfortable space in a natural setting. If you're looking forward to late night partying, watching TV, preparing meals, or if you are hoping to have a high level of contact with your airbnb hosts or complete silence, you'll probably find a better match with someone else.
No access to main house. You will have your own private bathroom with shower, and your own private kitchenette with fridge, microwave and laundry facilities.
You will enter through a street-level gate that is shared with the main house, but to access your separate studio, you will descend about 15 steps (see photos). For this reason, our rental unit is not accessible for wheelchairs. Guests should be careful going down the stairs at night or during rain, as the steps can be slick.
Interazione con gli ospiti
Guest privacy is our priority. Our unit has its own private entrance, and guests have access to the key via a lockbox. We are friendly, open people but sometimes we are busy during the weekends, or even out of town so we often don't meet our guests at all. You will probably hear us upstairs and we might cross paths in the entry way or on our way to feed the chickens, in which case, we will be happy to say hello!
If our guests have any questions or concerns, they will have our email and phone numbers, and we will be happy to respond and help however we can.
We are located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac in the Glenview neighborhood of Oakland. Our home is situated along the Sausal Creek green space, which connects to miles of hiking trails and offers peaceful, wooded views.
We are two blocks from Dimond Park, with playgrounds, tennis courts, and an outdoor Pool. We are located 5 blocks from Park Avenue Shops with several restaurants, cafes as well as a small grocery store. Our street is a quiet, residential block in the lower Oakland Hills, a great place from which to explore the East Bay, San Francisco, and the surrounding Bay Area.
