We have a private room and office available in our sunny 4Br/2Ba apartment, located in residential West Oakland at 8th and Chester! Available February 1st!! Rent is $1,145.70/mo. LGBT friendly! 🌈
The available room is about 16’x13’ (208ft²), with 12’ ceilings. The windows in the room are north facing. Will come unfurnished. The room does not have a closet unfortunately but there's a few options around the house for storage.
There also a small adjacent room that can be used as an office if you are working from home/hybrid worker! Right now it has a small sofa and desk that can stay if needed.
You would be sharing a bathroom with one other person.
Rent: $1,145.73/mo. PGE varies a bit throughout the year, usually $40-60/mo/person and internet is ~$20/mo/person. Landlord pays for trash and water. He usually raises rent by CPI (2-3%) each year in August. He requires a $600 security deposit and $1,000 deposit for your last month’s rent, for a total one-time move in amount of $2745.73.
Lease Period: Month-to-month, but ideally you’re looking to stay for the longer term. You would be taking over our old housemate on our lease.

We try to create a safe and supportive home. As things slowly reopen and restrictions lessen, we've in turn started going out more but still take reasonable precautions when going out and hopefully you'd do the same. Thank you!
