Room faces a busy street, so you will hear some street noise. Fruitvale is an eclectic area of Oakland. There is a huge Mexican influence but it is also very diverse. If you are looking for a comfortable room to relax in at the end of your day, this space is right for you. If you are looking for a super hip and trendy area and San Francisco to be right outside, this may not be your best option.

I work full time, and keep fairly busy, but I am always happy to chat when I'm cooking in the kitchen, and usually won't turn down a walk to the market or to get a taco down the street.

Hey there, I'm 38 and have had great experiences using AirBnB!
Please note that there is no longer a cat on-site, and the home is now pet-free.
I love to garden, cook, hike, attend yoga, ride my motorcycle, and share dinner with friends. I'm a healthy eater, believe in sustainability, and am pretty low key. I'm mostly vegan, but you don't have to be. I host small vegan potlucks about once per month. If your stay overlaps one of these; you will be invited!
I am an intermediate Japanese speaker.
I look forward to meeting you for your short-term, affordable stay in the Bay Area, and am not looking for a long term tenant at the present time.
