The washer and dryer are located downstairs and free to use.
Interaction with Guests
We love to meet new people and give suggestions on places to go and things to see. We also value and respect privacy. If you ever need anything or have a question, I can be reached personally by phone or text message.
The neighborhood is one of the best and safest neighborhoods in Oakland. When you walk out the door, you are greeted by tree-lined streets with neat older homes (mostly 1920's-1930's architecture).
It is an 8-10 minute walk down to popular College Avenue, where you will find many boutiques, bookstores, coffee shops, bars, and restaurants (some are award-winning). We highlighted some that we especially like on the map (you'll see it if you scroll down near the bottom of this page).
Local grocery stores include Safeway, Trader Joe's, and Rockridge Market Hall.
If you plan to use public transportation, the Rockridge BART station is a 13 minute walk from the house (easy access to San Francisco, Berkeley, and surrounding areas).
If you plan on having a car with you, there is always free and safe street parking right in front of the house (unlike many other parts of the Bay Area).
Other Things to Note
We have a cat living here. You may or may not see him during your stay, as he is outside much of the time and otherwise stays in the rooms for us that live here. :)
Be kind. Be you. Have a good time. :)
