I am a graphic designer who has recently moved to West Oakland. I've been a guest on air bnb, and now I'd like to try being a host. I have made this space beautiful, comfortable and peaceful, and now I want to offer the largest room for rent. West Oakland is an African American family neighborhood. There are many beautiful victorians - many are being restored and renewed. Extremely close to downtown, Lake Merritt, the Telegraph Art Murmur neighborhood - close to BART and buses. I have 3 rescue animals: 2 cats and 1 dog - all under 15lbs, loved and well attended to that are in my area which is very separate from the room you stay in. I'm love to talk to people - I love to conversate with almost anyone about almost anything. My house is vegetarian because I am vegan.
