The Nest at Lake Merritt in the Adam's Point neighborhood of Oakland is a walker's and biker's paradise with great food, coffee, and entertainment just a few minutes' walk away. Walk score of 90/100.

Pet allergy note: a dog and two cats live in this home. The dog travels with me to and from work.

Tila
The Nest is your own private bedroom looking out over Lake Merritt. One block up on the hill from the lake, it offers serene quiet with proximity to pretty much anything you are looking to do or see. Enjoy walking the 3.5-mile pathway along scenic Lake Merritt, check out the arts and culture of Uptown/Downtown Oakland, or saunter over to the Grand Lake district to enjoy numerous boutique shops and amenities. If you are heading to the City, just walk a scenic 20-min walk along the lake to the 19th Street BART station for a quick 20-min trip into San Francisco.

Your room features a full bed, a cute desk with a pull out writing table, a dresser, and a retro mini fridge + Keurig for your morning coffee. You are of course welcome to use the kitchen and the living room, which is filled with books and plants. Enjoy a cup of coffee at your desk looking out toward Lake Merritt before heading out into the Bay Area to explore.

Oakland, Kalifornia, Yhdysvallat

The Nest has a Walk Score of 90 out of 100. This location is a Walker’s Paradise so daily errands do not require a car, and if you are a runner, Lake Merritt is one of the most beautiful places to run in Oakland.

This location is in the Adams Point neighborhood in Oakland. Nearby parks include Lake Merritt Breakfast Club, Lakeside Park, and Lake Merritt Running Path. The crime rate is one of the lowest in the Bay Area and the outside noise is minimal.

On Saturdays, the Lake Merritt farmer's market is just down Grand Avenue. The Grand Lake movie theater and numerous boutique shops and restaurants are just a few minutes walk away. Arizmendi, a worker-owned pizza coop (one of my favorite pizza places in the Bay), is just a short walk away.

Whole Foods is a 7-min walk away. Equator Coffee is a 5-min walk. 1888 Coffee is a 2-min walk. Ensarro (some of the best Ethiopian in the Bay) is a 2-min walk as is Los Cantaros mexican eatery, Jong Ga House (korean all-you-can-eat BBQ), and Oasis (Mediterranean).

Every first Friday of the month, Oakland First Fridays (an amazing street fair featuring food and vendors) takes place just a 13-min walk away. The Fox and Paramount theaters are minutes walk away as are numerous galleries and arts spaces.

I'm a publisher and creative worker. As a host, this is my refuge after long hours of work and events. With my long hours, it is likely that you will have the place much to yourself during the day and at times, I will be working from my office at the front of the apartment. Though my days are pretty packed, I'll always be more than available to offer any tips or suggestions or help you out during your stay. It's a super quiet, creative space that definitely has a chill vibe with very little noise from outside.
