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.
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.
We had a wonderful time! We were here celebrating our 5 year anniversary and Pat & Lynn were wonderful hosts. They allowed us to stay to ourselves, but were available when we had questions. They had great recommendations for how to get around and things to do. Their home is beautiful and in a great location, right by the lake with lots of things within walking distance. My favorite part was breakfast. They had a spread of fruits, breads, and cereals available. Coffee and a variety of teas were available too. They truly hosted, insisting we not clean up after ourselves.
Pat and Lynn have a lovely home and a spectacular backyard garden in an upscale neighborhood near Lake Merritt in Oakland. They are exceptionally kind, accommodating hosts who go out of their way to making a staying with them a memorable occasion. The room is comfortable and spacious, with a private bath, blackout drapes, and a small private refrigerator, in addition to full kitchen privileges. I especially appreciated that they allow me to park in their driveway the night that I came back very late from San Francisco. If all AirBnB hosts were like Pat and Lynn, the hotels of America would quickly go out of business.
Pat and Lynn are delightful. Their home is very comfortable and is in a great location close to BART and many good restaurants. They provide all the guides and maps that are very helpful to familiarize you with the area. I enjoyed walking in the Lake Merritt area which is right near their home. I am definitely returning here on my next visit to Oakland.
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.
