You are welcome to SHARE any of the common spaces. Phones calls, computer work, or bringing other guests into the house is permitted, but must be in your room. I also request that you eat at the dining room table and not in your room.
Interaction with guests
I'm usually home during the day so there is a good amount of interaction.
There's no key to the front door and I will provide the combination when we talk.
PLEASE don't text me, I'm a Luddite so I only use the telephone; check my email only once a day sometimes!, And lastly, (I'll spare you the "water is our most precious resource"spiel) but please limit your shower to 5 minutes once a day. There are laundry facilities nearby; you're welcome to heat up your food in the toaster oven or microwave, and I provide coffee or tea (or a beer) in the morning.
Cancel up to 5 days before your trip and get a full refund. Cancel within 5 days of your trip and the first night is non-refundable, but 50% of the cost for the remaining nights will be refunded.

Single, white female-nurse by day and an aspiring urban farmer on my days off. I travel whenever I can, both domestically and internationally. I have a lot of interests too numerous to mention and have lived in the Bay area my entire adult life.
