Sunny, peaceful 2 bed 2 bath updated 1920s Craftsman bungalow w/deck and garden. Nestled among the trees, blocks from beautiful, bustling Lake Merritt.

This home is located in Oaklands Cleveland Heights neighborhood, a 5 minute walk to Lake Merritt, the gem of Oaklands crown (also its social hub and most picturesque urban running trail), the historic Grand Lake Theatre, and some of Oaklands best-loved restaurants, gyms, yoga studios, farmers markets, and boutiques. Downtown, Oaklands business center, and the burgeoning arts-focused Uptown district are a 20 minute walk around the lake (5 minute Uber/Lyft ride), providing a seemingly endless supply of cutting edge California cuisine and cafes. Take a short drive into the gorgeous Oakland hills to commune with nature in the shadows of the redwoods, and discover dozens of hiking & biking trails, lakes (for both swimming and fishing), golf courses, horseback riding stables and picnic areas. Explore further afield via the Lake Merritt BART station (a short bus ride away), which will have you in San Francisco in minutes, or by car- Marin Countys beaches and open spaces are a 30 minute drive, and Northern Californias famed Wine Country can be reached in an hour.

Wonderful home blocks from Lake Merritt
We recently had the pleasure of staying at A and GS house and could not have been happier with our experience. From the responsibleent we booked, A and G were warm and communicative, always providing quick and helpful answers to our questions. We not only stayed with them once, but came back six months later and stayed with them again until we found a long term home. The house itself was spotless and the furnishings were everything we could have hoped for. The back deck and backyard were especially amazing and a perfect place to relax after a long day working from home. It was also really convenient being just blocks from Lake Merritt, which was a great spot to take in some of Oaklands gorgeous views. All in all, A and GS rental house was an incredible deal and we would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a comfortable and welcoming place to stay in the Oakland area.
