Quiet, Sunny Furnished Studio Apartment

Ad ref# 101731624

Welcome to your quiet, sunny, furnished studio apartment with a full private bathroom and kitchenette.

It is 240 square feet, and it's inside the top floor flat of a sunny, remodeled 2-story building in North Oakland (near Rockridge and the Berkeley border). When the weather is nice, you can enjoy my private fenced backyard, which has a table and two chairs.

It includes basic utilities such as gas, electric, and water. High Speed Wi-Fi is an additional $44 per month.

I found that most furnished studio apartments nearby are ground floor apartments. So while those studio apartments have fully private entrances, you'll probably hear footsteps on your ceiling from people "walking on your head".

This studio is on the top floor so you'll never hear upstairs footsteps on your ceiling, which can be a drag very early in the morning or late at night!

Fees- a 1-time cleaning fee of $75 to $125, depending on how messy/clean you leave the place. You can email or phone me for more details, or to schedule a showing.

I am honoring this website’s rules by not including links to other websites in this ad. But when you email, remind me to send you a link to all of the reviews from past guests like you.

In the main room of your studio (150 square feet), you'll enjoy 10' high ceilings. You'll find a comfy queen-sized bed, desk, bureau, and closet.

The bed consists of mattress and box spring. The mattress contains memory foam and is very comfortable.

In the second room, there's a kitchenette with a sink, fridge, microwave, coffee maker, toaster oven, and 2-burner induction stove. The kitchenette has its own window but it doesn't have a hood to remove smoke. So it's not a good fit if you fry foods in a way that makes a lot of smoke.

Your private bathroom is big, sunny, and has a full-sized bathtub.

To enter your studio, you must walk through the back door of my 1400 square foot flat, and then through my kitchen and living room.

The back door (where you enter) is on the opposite side of the house from my room. So you can come and go any time of day, 24/7, and it won't disturb me. (Just close the back door quietly, since it's heavy and tends to slam.)

Since you enter your studio apt through my kitchen/living room, you may hear muffled kitchen noises and occasional singing and piano playing (depending on when you are home).

You may also hear muffled conversations in the kitchen - between me and my cleaning lady, assistant, or girlfriend.

The earliest I ever use the kitchen is 8am, although that's rare. (Usually it's closer to 9am.) The latest is 9:45-10pm, if I am washing dishes at the end of a long day.
