Our home in the Kensington Hills is on three levels, with a light filled living room with fire place, two decks, one overlooking the Bay, the other nestled under tall pines, a garden filled with blue jays, home grown vegetables and a hot tub.
Our home overlooks San Francisco Bay, and is nestled between Tilden Park and downtown Berkeley. It is a paradise for bikers, hikers, wine tasters, artists, writers, and all who enjoy the quiet of hills, and the allure of all that the Bay Area has to offer. This house is perfect for two couples, or a family of five.
In addition to two plus bedrooms, guests will have access to a fully equipped kitchen, living/dining rooms complete with sweeping views of the Bay and a fireplace and library of books for your reading pleasure. There is a television, WiFi, stereo with a wide assortment of CDs, two studies (which can double as additional bedrooms), four bathrooms, a cozy bird-filled garden, a hammock suspended between towering redwoods, and a hot tub.

I am a writer living, writing, and teaching in the Bay Area. I moved here in 2005 from my hometown of Nassau, Bahamas... so, making home a long way from home. Since then, I have grown to love this place - the landscape, the cultural diversity, the many kinds of artistic expressions, the people.
I'm currently working on two writing projects - completing a short story collection and, making my way into a novel.
I've been reading Ben Okri, Star Book. It's magical.
And now that summer is here, I'm enjoying being outside, walking in the woods behind our home, growing vegetables, watching the night sky.
