About this listing
I tutor children 3-6:30pm on weekdays. I ask that noise be kept at a minimum during these times. Let me know if you are not planning to be home during that time anyway.
Please mention who will be staying at our house and the purpose of your stay. Please entire description so there are no surprises.
First the bad:
Although we have many rooms on airbnb, please remember this is still a home not a hotel. Please keep noise down. Unfortunately our walls are PAPER THIN. We use a white noise machine at night.
There is only ONE SHARED bathroom. This means there might be a wait to shower. Please do not shower from 11pm to 8am. It is loud and wakes people up. We do not have laundry facilities (no washing clothes in the bathroom) Our house is not very sound proof so we provide earplugs. Marijuana, cigarettes, and all drugs are strictly prohibited in and outside the house.
Now for the good!
TV with cable
full size memory foam mattress
2nd floor next to the bathroom

You will get a code to the front door a day before your reservation. You will be able to let yourself in without a key and we may or may not be home right when you arrive. You may not see us much on the weekends since we sometimes work long hours. Also, we enjoy having get togethers with friends and family.

I booked this room for my parents' 6 days stay. Overall the room was clean and simple, noise level was pretty good. However the house was a bit too crowed when all three rooms were occupied, since their was only one bath room for all three rooms. There was a waiting line in the morning. And the bathroom was not always kept clean due to high traffic.
The hosts were helpful in setting up wifi and accommodate last minute booking.
The Peña family have a gorgeous home and our room very nice and comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped and we liked that we had our own fridge. Graciela, and Eva in particular, were welcoming and hospitable. One thing to note is that near BART means a 0.7 mile walk. We weren't expecting that distance given the heading and ended up taking Lyft/Uber more than we would have liked. Other than that, we enjoyed staying there.
Very friendly host, everything was clean, quiet area, close to BART tram to get to the center. Although we booked late, everything worked out perfectly.
This was my first experience with Airbnb and it was a great one! I felt very welcome and safe in this beautiful peach room in Albany, CA. The family is very nice and is always prompt to help us out and even gave us info about the SF events happening that weekend I stayed with them. They have a very clean room and offered their kitchen for cooking and also a fridge just for our stay. It was really nice. The neighborhood is safe and I was able to park on the street with no problem whatsoever. The bart stop is very close too.
The house has 3 rooms rented on Airbnb. The place is really clean and offers all the privacy you need.
Only one bathroom.
We never saw the actual owners as they were away for the weekend but everything was set to welcome us in the best way possible even as we arrived really late.
Breakfast was really limited but you can use the whole kitchen.
The house is 15 minutes away from BART in a safe area. Going to SF costs around $4.50 one way per person. It can be a bit long to get to SF as the trains are not always direct. It's the only real drawback of this listing.
I would recommend it anyway !
We really enjoyed our stay in Albany at their home. The peach room's bed was extremely comfy, the house is very clean and all the family members were friendly hosts. The neighbourhood has some nice cafés and lots of flowers to offer and you feel very safe to walk there at all time of the day. The access to San Francisco is very easy by BART, the station is just a 10min walk from the house.
