The space

The house is very large and spacious with a backyard, courtyard, big kitchen, expansive living room/entry, and dining room.

It's a five bedroom, three bathroom house on two levels.

The house is mid-century and charming. The neighborhood is nice and quiet.

There will be other guests and long-term tenants sharing the house. The environment is friendly and there's plenty of space for peace and privacy.

The room is on the lower level of the house, down one flight of stairs.

The best houseguests are those who enjoy the company of others and are tidy and quiet at night.

There's also a TV monitor that you can hook up to your laptop via HDMI cable and a DVD player as well. (But no TV or cable.)

All utilities are included.

Interaction with guests

I am a 33-year-old San Francisco native. My family has owned this house for 20 years.

I like to be helpful when I can, though I'm perfectly happy doing my chores and going about my day without too much chatter. When I'm home, I like to garden, fix stuff, and work in the garage.

I'm very familiar with the Bay Area and can offer tips on where to find almost anything.

Other things to note

I love my home and neighborhood dearly. Our house has a friendly, communal vibe that is built on trust and respect for each other and our neighbors.

Everyone who has stayed here so far has exceeded my expectations, which is why I continue opening my home to new guests.

Please allow me to answer all of your questions and feel free to share any thoughts.

I hope you enjoy your stay here!

I really enjoyed my stay at Nancy's Oakland House. The room, along with the rest of the house, as far as I could tell, is spacious, clean, comfortable, and quiet. Nancy goes the extra mile to make sure her guests are fully resourced with a bathroom stocked with extra toiletries, and a kitchen complete with complimentary breakfast every day. These details, along with Nancy's friendly and open demeanor, ensured my very pleasant experience at this AirBnB. I would also like to mention that Nancy responded with total graciousness and generosity when my friend showed up from out of town one night, hoping to stay with me. I happened to be in the city until around midnight that night, so my friend beat me to the Oakland House, where Nancy was prepared to meet her with open arms, and get her set up in the extra bed downstairs. Both my friend and I were grateful for Nancy's flexibility and accommodation. She is a wonderful host, and the house is just lovely. The panoramic view of the bay from the dining room is to die for, so if you stay here, be prepared to enjoy some truly phenomenal sunsets.

Nancy is an amazing host. She made us feel more than welcome in her home but also gave us privacy to do our own thing. We highly recommend her space. As others have noted, the view is spectacular, the house is very clean, and you need a car to get around. I'll add that the kitchen was my favorite space in the house and I was able to cook freely with the kitchenware available. We would stay here again and are grateful for Nancy's kindness, generosity, and the safety her home provided during our stay.

Nancy was a great host! We flew in late and she insisted on staying up late to meet us, get us situated, and comfortable. I knew the moment she did that, that she really cared to make us feel welcome! Everything was clean and easy to get to/use. Anything we needed was there.

Nancy met us and helped carry bags down the stairs, and showed us around. She provided lots of groceries for breakfast and snacks, much appreciated, and was available by phone for any questions. The view is really wonderful, and the house was spotless. we would happily stay there again.

Nancy User Profile

I'm 30 years old and originally from San Francisco, eldest of 6, Chinese-American. I moved back to the Bay Area in 2013 after living in LA for 4 years. I did my undergrad at Stanford, got my MBA at UCLA and have worked in interior design, product design, graphic and web design.

I love to hike, throw a football, and watch the sun set. I garden on sunny days and cook when I'm inspired.

You will usually see me with a tool in my hand. I like construction and DIY projects. I built a fence recently and fix things around the house. I really like to clean.

My wonderful girlfriend, Cathy, lives in Berkeley and my (large) family lives in San Francisco. I have a house in Oakland. I split my time between San Francisco, Berkeley and Oakland and cross the bridge almost everyday.

I love meeting people and sharing my home, and that is why I host. As a host, I want to make sure that you have everything you need to start your day right and that you have a pleasant home to return to. You'll have plenty of freedom to explore the City on your own. I'm pretty hands-off after the first day, but I'm always near my cell phone if you need help, unless I'm camping or on vacation.

As a guest, I'm quiet, independent. I like to start my day early and sleep around 11 PM. I prefer nature to cities, I like to read books, I love coffee, I travel with my girlfriend who likes the same things.

My motto? I count my blessings.
