Welcome to the quiet Temescal Jewelbox! Newly renovated, our backyard apartment is a home away from home in one of Oakland’s most vibrant centrally located neighborhoods. We love Temescal! Fully equipped new kitchen, a light filled living area with our prize 1957 Metz music cabinet, restored and Bluetooth compatible - stream your play lists from the dedicated WiFi. Settle in to the upstairs bedroom with a cozy reading nook, desk space, a “walk-up” closet, en-suite small bathroom with shower.
We live in the front house, a typical 1920’s bungalow, the Jewelbox Apartment is all yours. The apartment is attached, but has its own private entrance through the back gate and shares only an external wall. It is super quiet. Our sunny back yard is available for your use. The Jewelbox’s private entrance opens right onto it.
