Interaction with Guests
I like to be as social as my guests wish. I respect their privacy, as I expect they do mine. There have been many occasions when my guests and I have enjoyed sitting down to dinner together or just sat out on the deck enjoying morning coffee.
We are within a 4 block walk to Piedmont Avenue, which is a wonderful area with a variety of restaurants, a movie theatre, a great grocery market and produce shops, as well as bookstores and gift shops. Parking is plentiful and free around the house. Walk through the Rose Garden right down the street from my home.
BART is just a mile and a half from the house. If I am able, I will gladly meet you at the BART station. The casual carpool into downtown San Francisco during the morning commute hours is just a block away.
We hope our guests can feel relaxed and enjoy the downstairs areas of the home (living room, kitchen, deck). If we are available to drop you off or pick you up at the Oakland BART station, we will gladly do that. We can supply maps and suggestions of sites all around the Bay area.
Although a fairly quiet home we want you to enjoy music or TV, but would appreciate this wraps up by 11pm. Use of washer and dryer for guest staying 7 days or more.

What a treat! Linda and Christian were gracious hosts. They made me feel at home form the moment I arrived. Happened to be staying during the oscars and they had a little get together with some friends and I felt included. The room is well appointed and the bathroom was just right. Looking forward to staying again....
My parents stayed with Linda and Christian for 3 nights during their visit to CA and loved it! Wonderful hosts, beautiful home, lovely neighborhood. Highly recommend!
Linda was a fantastic host. She made sure my husband and I had EVERYTHING we needed. The ro was very clean, bright and so comfortable. Both Christain and Linda went way beyond what you might expect. I would definitely recommend staying there. Everything from location to fabulous people to the house its self is such a delight.
Thanks Linda for everything and we will return.

Linda's place is great. The room and private bath are both huge and super clean. I love this location, walk to all kinds of great coffee and food on Piedmont Ave or Grand Ave, or jump on the highway. Super easy street parking. Linda was very friendly and welcoming.
My second stay with Linda and everything was perfect. Linda was a super host and welcomed my Daughter and myself into her beautiful home. The location is perfect with easy access to down town Oakland Lake Merritt South Berkeley and Emeryville in a great neighbor hood with tomes of restaurants and Saturday Farmers Market.
All needed information is written out for handy access. The room is just as described and the bed was super comfortable. Linda is so kind to offer a light breakfast and coffee. She has even gathered Local Bay Area maps and attraction pamphlets and placed the information in your room. There was a handy desk for working at in comfort. I would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone. I suggest that if you need a place near Lake Merritt you stay here. Regards Elizabeth
THE BED IS AMAZING! It was such a relief to arrive at Linda's home and see such a gorgeous place. It will most likely be the best bed I sleep on throughout our US travels. I have a bad back so a great bed makes all the difference. Large private bedroom and bed, with natural light and fresh air and squirrels to meet in the garden. More than just a great home, Linda is a great host. She is so warm, and caring, and relaxed. We will be back! Don't hesitate to stay in this very green, VERY safe and friendly part of Oakland. Highly recommend ! Parking is easy too. From Gen and Henrik
This was the first time to stay B&B service and I met Linda.
My room was very clean, cozy and had private rest room.
No much interruption so I could stay very comfortably.
Neighborhood is very silent so I could sleep very well. Also, on Saturday. there was farmers market. It was very interesting to see and buy some fresh organic products. There is a big lake within 15 min walking that was awesome to walk around.

Mature female, friendly and welcoming. I enjoy the wonderful hiking trails throughout the bay area, as well as the many exciting events, museums, restaurants and shops in the San Francisco Bay region.
As a past relocation consultant, I can offer you great suggestions on where to go and how to get there during your visit to the Bay Area. I'm looking forward to being your host during your stay.
