This safe, family-friendly location is perfect! You are very close to the beautiful Lake Merritt. Grocery shopping is easy with stores like Safeway, Trader Joe's, Whole Foods a very short drive or a brisk walking distance away. Transportation is very convenient, with AC transit buses frequently running at early and late house; BART is also about 20 min walk away and 5 min by bus. This is the perfect location for young families who love weekend activities such as hanging out at the farmer's market.

Centrally located and walking distance from public transportation. We have several grocery store options to choose from and downtown Oakland is just a few steps away. A few blocks from Lake Merritt allows for easy exercise and a quick walk to the Saturday farmer's market.
