Our cozy studio is a perfect launching pad for your Bay Area adventure. Walk to Bart. Free parking. Chose one bed plus a couch or two beds for family/friend travel. Private unit. Essentials for comfortable travel included - like a kitchenette with fridge big enough for ice cream, beer, and meals. Between Solano Ave and El Cerrito Plaza, our walkable neighborhood offers delicious restaurants, artsy movie theaters, and shops like Trader Joes. Reliable transit (Bart, & SF/ local bus lines).

The space

Our studio is a light filled space with cozy comforts to help you relax. Our flexible room can have two beds for family/ friend travel or one bed with a futon couch for a relaxing sitting area for reading, visiting, or watching our wide selection of Dvds. Fresh linens and plenty of warm comforters (although this is California!). If waking refreshed involves hot beverages for you- rest assured we stock the studio with coffee and tea and a fridge that is large enough for whatever food comforts and sustains you. For cooking we have a microwave, toaster oven, hot water heater, induction cooktop, and cookware. We've taken photos from every angle, so you'll have a good sense of the space. Our studio is 200 sqft with ceilings just under 7ft. We include dining tables inside and out.

Guest access

Our studio has a separate locked key code entrance for privacy, a bathroom with shower, access to a shared yard with dining table and hammock, and a kitchenette (fridge, microwave, hot water heater, cooktop, pots & pans) to help you live well.

Interaction with guests

As people who have traveled the globe and also managed campgrounds and countless community groups, we're happy to share whatever tips and resources will help you. We also know the beauty of solitude, if that suits you best. We've included a book lending library, maps, and a wide selection of DVD's for your pleasure. Given a big hill nearby, we don't have network tv.

Other things to note

We will try to keep our home quiet for you, though we do have a small child. The neighbors also have a dog and chickens, who are primarily active during our normal waking hours (6-9). If you're tall, please note the studio has a ceiling just under 7ft.

Sonja and Joel were wonderful hosts. Their place is cosy, clean and really well equipped for a comfortable stay! Sonja was super friendly, flexible, communicative and very knowledgeable about the area and keen to share that knowledge with us. We loved the treats and books and dvd' s and all the little touches that made this place feel like a temporary home! Can't recommend this spot highly enough!

Very nice place:-) Located close to BART station, so exploring San Francisco - without concerning parking the car - is easy. And Sonja is a super host, who treated us with surprices like homebaked cake and goodiebag for the drive from SF:-)

Perfect place to stay in Albany, near a cool bar and other amenities, a short walk to a BART station, and free parking. A good base from which to explore San Francisco. The studio is clean and tidy and has most things you might need. Sonja was an excellent host, always asking if we needed anything, and offering suggestions for things to do, and even leaving snacks and a variety of teas in the studio. Overall, fantastic.

This is a quiet place in walking distance to great stores, nightlife, and public transportation. We would definitely stay here again. The beds were comfortable. The hospitality was genuine and thoughtful. The communication was excellent. The location was perfect. We lucked out! Thank you for opening up your home to airbnb guests. Thank you for the treats, the fresh baked cookies, and the timely responses to our needs and questions.

We are public health professionals who have lived in the Bay area for 20+ years. We enjoy getting out on the road ourselves - camping and traveling - so we'd be happy to share our love of California and beyond.
