Description

The space

Cozy room in single family home with direct access to large, private garden. Single bed, study desk, large closet, shared bathroom. Use of large, gourmet kitchen OK. Located in the East Bay hills, right on the border between El Cerrito and Richmond, this is a safe, quiet neighborhood that makes for a wonderful base to explore San Francisco, Berkeley, Marin county and other Bay Area treasures. Easy street parking. Close to public transportation. Potential guests should know that in addition to being an AirBnB host I'm also a dogvacay host and most of the time I'll have 2 (sometimes 3) well behaved dogs. The dogs don't have access to the guest room (unless you want to :-) but guests should be comfortable around dogs.

Getting around

20 minutes to closest BART station (El Cerrito/ Del Norte); 2 minute walk to # 7 Bus (runs to downtown Berkeley). Easy parking, typically right on front of the house.

Other things to note

In addition to being an AirBnB host I'm also a dogvacay host and most of the time I'll have 2 (sometimes 3) well behaved dogs. The dogs don't have access to the guest room (unless you want to :-) but guests should be comfortable around dogs.

Dear guest,
Thank you for choosing to stay with us. To make your visit most enjoyable here are a few tips
Heat
The thermostat regulating the house temperature is located on the wall separating the dining room from the living room (near the end of the table). The forced air system is old and not very effective in heating all the rooms. There is a small electric heater at the end of your bed, which you may use as an additional heat source.
To help us preserve energy please make sure that all heaters are turned off when you are not in the house.
WIFI
To connect to our WIFI
Network name: provided upon check-in
Password: provided upon check-in
Bathroom
We have made several drawers in the bathroom cabinet available for your personal items. The bottom right cabinet (closest to the toilet) has spare toilet paper and fresh towels.
Please do not use the bathtub.
Washer and Dryer
A Washer and Dryer are located in the garage (door off the kitchen) and are available for your use. The washer has a peculiar operating function that I best explain in person. Don’t hesitate to ask.
Living room/Safety Lights
We keep the curtains in the living room closed at night and when no one is at home. We also keep the porch light on at night. It operates with the left of the two switches next to the front door.
Dogs
Make sure the dogs don't get out the front door when you go in and out of the house.
