  • Chas is a very nice person. However I found it hard to stay in the place that he has the ad on airbnb. It might be good for others but for me was very small (maybe good for only sleeping). As I might want to go out during the night and as a mater of fact you need to take the ladder to go to the out of your place (there is no close light switch, so you need a flash light) it was very hard for me ( I found it dangerous as you might be sleepy and then you fall from the ladder). So I asked for his another place. ( I think he suggest this place to everybody, but he does not put it up on airbnb for a clear reason to me but anyway!). Other place is a room with full of other thing. So If you have 2 luggage like me, then you have only a small bed with a space for your luggage. The bed I am not sure created from what but I think there was a metal thing on top of it which during the cold time was making it even colder! ( I had a thin blanket which was making it better but still cold. So the bed was not comfortable!! His house was really cold. Although he was trying to help a little with a heater but I found it extremely cold. (I was there in Dec. and at that time Bay area was very cold also). So I do not know what should I say. I had no other option and I stayed there for 6 days. Chas by himself is very kind and he tries to help you to feel home. If you cook at home he does not mind. If you have question how to get a place he is very helpful. Also the first day he gave me a ride to the bart station. By the way from his house one can walk also to the bart station which is about 20 minutes or less. There is a natural market close to his place that making my life very easy in order to get food. Oh he is sensitive to using the water I guess. The first day I took a shower and he told me that "your shower was 15 minutes with running water! It was long!" However because the house was super cold I could not turn off the hot water while I was taking a shower. I think if I was in other time of the year (maybe not very cold or hot) I was going to like it more!!

  • Chas was very accommodating! Cozy sleeping area, clean house, awesome shower and the property is in a nice, quiet area of Richmond. FYI, Chas will probably offer you eggs made from his own chickens. Make sure to try 'em!
