    4.5/5 Anonymous on Mar 12, 2022

    It has been a great experience so far living at Lyric. The staff are wonderful and extremely helpful and the apartment is in a prime location, minutes away from all the downtown Walnut Creek amenities.

    I’ve only been here a short while but the management team has been great. The location is great and most of the neighbors I’ve met have been great as well. The only drawback is cost. Otherwise I would certainly recommend the property.

Renting a studio apartment in Castro Valley, CA

The bad news is that the hip neighborhoods are typically not the places to look for truly affordable homes for rent, and Castro Valley, CA is no exception. That is unless you are willing to give up the (real or imagined) benefits of multiple rooms and experience the minimalist simplicity of a small apartment located smack dab in the middle of the action. Leaf through 25 listings with a total of 44 units, and you’ll be sure to find at least a couple of cheap studios that will make you wonder whether having one or two extra rooms is really worth the difference in price and commute time. Already a fan of living small? Why don’t you check out our selection of one room apartments—there’s always a better deal out there, you just have to know where to look for it (Centerville Fremont is the cheapest neighborhood in town—wink wink).

They are called efficiency apartments for a reason

In case you’re still wondering, the time and effort put into finding an efficiency apartment does pay off. Literally, and pretty fast too. The Castro Valley, CA average rent is currently at $2,613, but a single-bedroom apartment in Castro Valley, CA can be yours for as low as $1,725 per month. While the cheapest bachelor units normally have a small bath and one bigger, multifunctional space (meaning that the hall and the kitchen in the main room, basically), you don’t need to have that if it’s not your thing. You can find plenty of one-room apartments in Castro Valley, CA with a separate kitchen. These are still well under the price of an apartment with multiple rooms, but slightly more expensive than your average studio, so it’s a good idea to aim for the higher end of the price range. The currently the most expensive studio apartment in Castro Valley, CA costs a monthly $5,000.
