The room has great light, beautiful wooden floors, a double bed, and a large closet. It is just a few feet down the hall from your private bathroom, which features a skylight and spacious shower. We're happy to share the kitchen, living room and dining room as you like. Our bedroom is at the opposite end of the short hallway, so you won't have a private wing or floor. It will feel like having roommates (though we are out a lot).
The bed is double / full size and the room contains a dresser, a desk, a large closet, two windows that get a lot of light, and beautiful wood floors. Please note that the photos are from when the house was staged--the decor is different and the room is somewhat smaller than it appears online.
We're happy to share the kitchen, dining room, and parlor with guests. We have an old but sweet-sounding Ludwig baby grand, available to pianists in the spacious living room / rehearsal space
Interazione con gli ospiti
Schedules allowing, we're happy to help with rides to / from BART.
Altre cose da evidenziare
1) Please note that we have a cat! 2) On Monday nights and some weekend afternoons we host choir rehearsals in our living room. You are welcome to be in the house during these times, we just want to warn about the noise! 3) The photos shown in the ad are from when the house was staged for sale. The furniture layout is different now and the photos were taken with one of those lenses that make the rooms look larger than they are. 4) We make sure the private bedroom and bathroom are neat and clean. The common areas tend to be a bit cluttered. 5) Our place works well for people looking for a low-cost, friendly place to stay. If you are looking for an escape or destination, this is probably not the right option for you. Our house is modest, the decor a bit funky, and the common areas are often a bit cluttered. It also works best for people with a car. If you don't have a car, you will need to walk 20 minutes (1 mile) to get to the BART station (or take a ~$7 cab/uber/lyft). I like the walk (I do it twice per day), but if you will mind, then best to find a place closer to a BART station.
We expect guests to be quiet, respectful, and communicative, and we plan to be the same.
I love to sing in choirs and cook and bake and read and ride my bike and I run a lot, but I'd be hard-pressed to say I love it. I've traveled internationally a fair amount, largely in developing countries. I currently live on the west coast but in the summers my business school classmates and I like to get together for a long weekend of relaxing, playing nerdy strategy games, cooking, and swimming.
Prior to moving back to California, I lived in Ohio for five years. I still own a house there, and am a remote landlord, so that's given me a real appreciation for what it's like to entrust strangers with living in one's home. When I rent others' homes it's my intention to leave the place cleaner than when I arrived.
