We offer a perfect place for travelers wanting an inexpensive alternative to hotels, for visiting grandparents, scholars, business people here for a few days and people transitioning to the Bay Area. Some of our more frequent guests are couples visiting their children and grandchildren in the area.
WE ARE VERY CLOSE TO SF AT MUCH LOWER RENT AND WITH MUCH BETTER WEATHER! NO MORE THAN 30-45 MINUTES DOOR TO DOOR USING PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION OR 20 MINUTES BY CAR, DEPENDING ON TRAFFIC.
Although we are here at the same time you are, you will experience complete privacy if that is your pleasure or friendly talk if that is better for you. The house is large enough and the bedrooms far enough apart that we rarely run into each other except intentionally.
Huge bedroom with queen bed and bath en suite. Mounted cable TV, wireless internet, window seat, refrigerator, kettle, kitchen use, washer and dryer use, beautiful garden and occasional living room use. Weekly linen and cleaning included.
We'll put out coffee, juice, fruit, cereal and bread for toasting.
In addition, we can take care of your office needs such as scanning, faxing, and copying.
One very friendly but sometimes shy mid-size dog.
LOCATION: ½ block from beautiful park and garden, 300 yards from Lake Merritt. Short walk to restaurants, theaters, Saturday Farmer's market, Oakland downtown & BART to San Francisco and cities around the bay. Commuter bus or casual carpool to SF 3 blocks away.
If we are available, we'll drive you to Oakland airport when you leave or to the BART to get to SFO.
PARKING: You are welcome to park in our driveway while you are loading and unloading. After that, we can negotiate your ability to share that space. Street parking is difficult but possible. If you are like many of our guests who just park the car and take public transportation for the duration, we will happily put your car in the garage.
Suggestion: There is so much going on here. Go online to Goldstar to get an idea of the 100 or so plays, tours, and other exciting events; all at half price! You can sign up for free. This is a good Eastbay link for 2013:
When you book with us, we will send you a welcome packet with a lot of local information. Thanks and we look forward to hearing from you.
Normal - no smoking, excessive alcohol or rowdy parties. Strong fragrances linger so we prefer no perfume or strong aftershaves. We clean up all breakfast dishes. If you use the kitchen for special needs, which is allowed, please clean up. Tell us about spills. We're helpful and non-judgemental. Checkout is at noon. We are happy to keep luggage outside the room for the afternoon of departure.
Pat and Lynn were very friendly and helpful. Their home is beautiful and perfectly located to get anywhere in the Bay Area. Pat picked us up at the train station, Lynn made sure to print out any useful information for us about the local area, and in general we had a very pleasant stay. I would absolutely recommend any friend stay here.
Pat and Lynn are pros. Everything is set up so that you can feel comfortable, and learn about the area with ease--lots of travel books, transport information, info on local restaurants etc. They are very comfortable and easy to speak with and willing to share their knowledge of the area. Beautiful home and gardens. Kisses to Chloe! Thank you Pat and Lynn
We had to have a late arrival coming back from Yosemite and Pat & Lynn made it possible. The space is comfortable and everything you need is handy.
A proposito dell'host, Pat And Lynn
We are really enjoying being AirBNB hosts. We're kind of naturals at it. Pat is retired and Lynn is still working but in her own business nearby. We love to travel when we can, see friends, attend theater and movies, enjoy our many wonderful Bay Area restaurants, take walks around the neighborhood and with our dog, Chloe. Our kids, Gabriel and Liz are grown. Gabriel and Sarah have been happily married for three years. They're all a big part of our lives.
