About the property

1 Bdrm/1bath w/reserved parking, upscale neighborhood, privacy, and a panorami

The apartment is located on the lower level of an Architect’s beautiful Mediterranean styled home, but has complete privacy with a separate entry and patio. The decor is warm, modern, and welcoming. Windows overlook a sea of California oak and bay trees to an amazing view of the new Bay Bridge tower with the Golden Gate Bridge beyond. Two parking spaces are always available on the street in front of our home, then one flight of exterior stairs from parking to the apartment’s patio and entry.

The apartment can sleep up to four guests, with a new queen-sized bed in the bedroom plus a new queen-sized sofa bed (with an upgraded gel mattress – very comfortable!) in the living room. There are hardwood floors and tasteful furnishings throughout. Bedroom has a wonderful ceiling fan and black-out drapes on window to help you sleep. Black-out drapes in the Living room as well.

The kitchen is fully equipped with granite counter tops, dishwasher, gas oven and cooktop, microwave and large refrigerator. The large elegant bathroom sports a heated marble floor, marble counter top and bathtub with overhead shower. There is a large closet and plenty of dresser drawers for your belongings. The bedroom has a quiet ceiling fan, and has radiant heated floors for cool days in the winter. A laundry room with full sized washer and dryer is available for your exclusive use, owners have their own laundry.

But the best part is the can watch the sunrise illuminate downtown Oakland and San Francisco, enjoy ever changing sunsets, or perhaps witness a carpet of fog crowned by a clear blue sky. You will delight in the ever-changing view!

About Marianne Miller

My husband and I are both architects specializing in health care design and construction. We have three grown children, our son is a Pilot in the Air Force and our two daughters live and work in San Francisco. We are always very busy with work, at the gym, or other adventures. We love to travel.

Marianne Miller purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Marianne Miller chose Oakmore

We love our home because it has a GREAT VIEW, has easy freeway access, quiet and is well designed. Our place is spotless, comfortable and has everything you need.

What makes this apartment unique

We only have one adjacent neighbor (with no children) so it is very quiet and parking is always available.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Erin and her family were wonderful and thoughtful guests! I hope they will visit again.

The place was very clean, well equipped, and visually appealing inside and out. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

The little town at the bottom of the hill was fantastic. My girls got their nails done, we had a delicious breakfast and pizza. We were close to events and places in Marin County, San Francisco, Oakland, and Berkeley. We were very comfortable in the space. My 14 and 17 year olds daughters shared the pull out and I slept in the bedroom. The owners were very kind and took time to meet us and say hello. Their communication with us was excellent. And the view was really nice. Also, the area neighborhood was nice in which to take a jog or walk. Depending on your family the space could accommodate 4. Everything worked. We would definitely recommend the Miller’s space. Have a great day.

great place and value

  • 5 of 5

Everything you need and a great location for San Francisco and Oakland. It is exactly as advertised by Marianne, who clearly knows what a traveler needs. The apartment is top notch including the laundry, with detergent included! This is a high-end guest quarters on the bottom 2 floors of a 4-story house on the hill. The parking and quiet are worth it all by itself. There's no reason to stay anywhere else. I traveled solo but it could handle 4 persons. Thanks Marianne!

Such a beautiful, cozy place to stay. The bed was extremely comfortable. The kitchen was an added bonus, and the bathroom was amazing. I will definitely stay here again if I am ever in the area again.

Also very popular with bicycle riders.

Above all, we love sharing the area’s secret spots and gems, so ask us if you are interested in any particular activities or locales. We strive to create a remarkable experience, so you will cherish your visit and love this place as much as we do.
