Interaction with Guests
I live in the home and enjoy meeting my guests in the kitchen, to share a cup or tea or coffee and offer information about local sights and activities.
I am sometime available for a ride to BART during bad weather or unusual circumstances and also offer bikes for their use.
I have lived in my home for 40 years and know the neighbors and neighborhood well and have always enjoyed it. We have block parties and walk around our neighborhood regularly.
The mass transit station, BART, is 1 mile to the west or 1.4 miles to the south and is convenient and safe to use. Bikes may go on the BART. The bus stop is two blocks from the house. The train station is also located by BART for longer trips.

The public swimming pool is beautiful and inexpensive. The local gym is half a mile ($10 a month!), an easy walk or bike ride.
