Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

We are located in the upscale East Bay neighborhood of Piedmont, which is actually a small, independent city within Oakland. The city of Piedmont is very residential, quiet and safe; but it is also within walking distance of great shops and restaurants in Oakland (Piedmont Ave, Grand Ave, Lake Merrit). It is a short drive or bike through Oakland to the great neighborhoods of Rockridge, Uptown, Temescal, and more. With a quick BART train ride, drive, or ferry ride you can be in the heart of San Francisco within 20 minutes. We also have the amazing East Bay regional parks just behind us in the Oakland hills that include beautiful Redwood groves and huge, pristine, outdoor hiking trails. You also have easy driving access to destinations all over Northern California. Marin and Napa/Sonoma are only 45 minutes away, Santa Cruz and Point Reyes are only 1.5 hours, and Tahoe and even Yosemite are only 3-4 hours by car. The weather in the East Bay is generally warmer and sunnier than in San Francisco and the peninsula, so it is a great place to stay to get the best of the Bay Area.

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

We are a short walk to Piedmont Ave and Grand Ave, both of which have excellent restaurants (including a 2 Michelin star restaurant on Piedmont Ave), shops, and two movie theaters; there are also farmer's markets every weekend. We are also within walking distance of Lake Merritt which is a beautiful place to run or just have a walk. We are just down the street from an excellent park that includes a Redwood grove and play area for kids. In the hills above us are several excellent regional parks that include a botanical preserve, a Redwood grove, and a volcanic preserve. This is just within a 1-2 mile radius of our house, within a 45 minute drive radius from our house you have San Francisco, Berkeley, Marin, Napa and many other great areas in the East Bay and SF peninsula. Within a 4 hour drive you can include Santa Cruz, Big Sur, Monterrey, Tahoe, Yosemite, Mendocino, and the central coast.
