About this listing
Queen size bed with your two private rooms (front room has a desk & full (a.k.a. double) bed. Two shared bathrooms (push & twist knob to lock) and full access to kitchen and shared living space. Sometimes you will have the house to yourselves, sometimes there might be 10 people staying here (housemates, family guests, your large group). Absolutely NO smoking of any kind inside or near our house. And please do not bring in smell of tobacco or marijuana smoke.
A longer stay may be available... We're still juggling schedules.

Our neighborhood of single family homes has three small parks, is quiet (except for the occasional barking dog or seasonal crickets) and we are close to Lake Chabot Regional Park. We are also a 10 minute walk to convenience and grocery stores, a bagel cafe, Starbuck's, and a few restaurants. We usually have food to share and can take you with us for food shopping if needed.
Road and mountain bikes available to borrow. Local mobile phone available to borrow free. Supplemental solar electricity and solar water heating keep our costs down and our karma up. Sailing on the Bay is a possibility.
We have two other housemates, plus 2 cats and a hypo-allergenic dog (terrier/poodle). The longer haired female Misha is unusually soft and is better off indoors, enjoying human company.
Chill: enjoy the sunset bay view, the flora and fauna, the relaxed and engaging environment.

Interaction with guests
We really enjoy housemates: you can be as solitary or as integrated as you wish.
Great friendly walking neighborhood, day or night! Wildlife, hills, ridge trails.
We can pick up or drop off at San Leandro BART (2.5 miles) or Oakland Airport (6 miles) if scheduling allows. For daily commuters, the 22 miles to downtown San Francisco takes 25 minutes by BART, 40 to 50 minutes by bus, and 30 to 60 minutes by car. 5 minute walk to AC transit bus lines 73, NX3, NX4. 45 minute walk, or 15 minute bike ride, to BART.
Other things to note
Our housemate who normally stays in that room, may stay away longer, so the room may be available longer.
No smoking. No illegal drugs. No parties without coordinating with housemates first. No loud music after 10:30 pm. Please clean up after yourself. Respect is good for everyone!
