Property description

Our cozy garden studio comes well equipped for up to two travelers. 100% cotton sheets on the queen sized bed ensure a comfortable sleep. The studio includes a private bathroom and shower, as well as a mini fridge, microwave, Keruig coffee maker, an assortment of K-cups, 32 inch LCD TV with Netflix, Hulu Plus and HBO, an iHome alarm clock, free wifi, plenty of drawer space and fresh towels and linens. The studio is separate from the main house, with a private entrance, and opens into the front garden full of fruit trees and flowers, and the occasional bird and squirrel. The neighborhood is peaceful and serene, the street is quiet. Parking is available on the street.

The studio is located in the Montclair Hills neighborhood of Oakland. Shops and restaurants are a mere five minute drive away, and Rockridge Bart and the shopping district of Rockridge are about 8-10 minutes away by car. The owners live on a nearby street - close enough if you need us but not under your feet.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: I am a stay at home mom of two children. We love to travel, and have just recently moved back to the US after a two year stint in Singapore. We have been all over Asia, including China, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Macau and Japan. We have also been to Australia, the UK, France, Norway, Spain, Italy, Brussels, Switzerland, Mexico, Canada and Costa Rica. I understand the needs of travelers!

Why the Owner Chose Oakland:
We bought this home because we loved the quiet serene property with its fruit trees and flowers, and loved the view of San Francisco Bay from the backyard. We also liked the neighborhood and its many amenities.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
The yard is full of fruit trees. We have oranges, tangerines, grapefruit, lemons, limes, peaches and apples. Guests are welcome to help themselves to seasonal fruit.
