Interaction with Guests

All our guests are unique and so our interactions w/guests vary from a 'help yourself we're not home' to 'private/quiet/relaxing' to 'dinner & movies' to 'family setting' to 'icebreaker show and tells' to 'come with us to this event' to 'party animal til the sun comes up'. It all depends on you.

We travel a lot and so we have the place setup where you can help yourself to the linens, w/d, kitchen, living room, etc.

The Neighborhood

Our home is steps away from the farmer's market (only Fridays). Check out the latest exhibit at the Oakland Museum of California. Meet up with friends at one of the many lively new restaurants, lounges and cafes just moments away in Old Oakland. Enjoy a great concert at the Fox Theater, which is only a block away or go to Van Cleef. Cafe Van Kleef is a wonderful place to relax after a busy day; enjoy an elegantly strong drink flavored with fresh-squeezed fruit and the finest selection of top-shelf liquor to be found. Experience canoeing or whitewater rafting at (website hidden) or take a road trip to the beautiful South Lake Tahoe to ski or snowboard. If you are into fashion, visit East Bay Bridge Shopping Center, Rockridge Shopping Center or Trans Pacific Centre.
