Upstairs Bedroom in a Old World charmer on a quiet street in the Oakland Hills. Featuring views of San Francisco and The Bay. LGBT friendly.

The space
The Lovely Private Guest Room, is up a flight of stairs from the main floor and is situated such that you have privacy. There is a large closet, desk and the queen size bed, which has a very nice firm mattress. The room has a beautiful view and receives both the morning and afternoon sunshine.

The House: There are a few steps to the front door and inside there is a sunken living room (two steps). The shared bathroom, kitchen and other accessible spaces are on the main floor.

Note: There may be other guests sharing the house. The environment is communal and friendly, but there's also plenty of space for peace and privacy.

The best house guests are those who enjoy the company of others, are tidy and are quiet at night.

ATTENTION: There are no sidewalks in front of the house. If uneven surfaces are difficult for you to traverse, perhaps consider another listing. NO AIR-CONDITIONING - On hot summer days, this room can get quite warm. A fan is available on request, and the windows on either side may be opened for cooling when there is a nice cross breeze.

Guest access
Relax in the living room, prepare food in the well-appointed kitchen (or pack a lunch to take on a Bay Area adventure), eat in the breakfast nook (with a view of the Bay and San Francisco - my favorite!), watch a movie or network show in the den (DIRECTV with tons of channels).

Kitchen: There is access to the usual pots, pans, plates, utensils, glasses and tableware. Space in the refrigerator, freezer and cupboard is usually available if you would like to store food. Please let the host know your needs.

For those who need caffeine in the morning, you may bring and make your own using the coffee grinder and French press. Or check with me, I may have some Peet's Coffee on hand. ;-)

WiFi: We have WiFi available or you may plug into the internet using the LAN connection in the Den.

Bathroom: Please note that the Bathroom is the Shared, so please limit your time in the bathroom.

Washer and Dryer: Access available only for guests staying 2 weeks or more. Bring your own laundry detergent etc.

Note:
* No landline - You must have a cell (mobile) phone
* This is not a good house for people who are mobility impaired.
* This is one of three rooms offered on Airbnb. In addition to the host, there may be other guests in the home in separate bedroom rooms.

Other things to note
For those folks that have *severe* pet allergies - there are no pets living in the home, however, dogs have visited, though it has been many years, and a few furniture pieces may have come from a home that had a cat.

(Please do not bring your pet... my apologies to Snoopy!)

- Sheets & Towels: Host will change sheets and towels weekly (or at the host’s discretion)
- Trash bins in Guest’s room will be emptied on Saturday or Sunday.
- Open Windows (or closed windows) in a Guest’s room may be closed (or opened) at the hosts discretion due to hot, cold or inclement weather in order to promote cooling, to prevent heat loss, or to protect the house from rain - depending on the season.

NO AIR-CONDITIONING - On hot summer days, this room can get quite warm. A fan is available on request, and the windows on either side may be opened for cooling when there is a nice cross breeze. Generally, Oakland Summer Weather hovers in the mid 70s.

During Winter Months: The house may be on the cool-side. Be prepared to wear an extra layer like a sweatshirt or sweater. The house can get chilly over night, as the heat is turned off at 10PM, and during the work week, the heat is off during the day. An electric blanket is on the bed for warmth at night during the winter.

When it rains, windows are to be kept closed.

ATTENTION: There are no sidewalks in front of the house. If uneven surfaces are difficult for you to traverse, perhaps consider another listing.

During the rainy seasons, there may be sandbags in front of the house to divert water. Please step carefully around them.

The host will take any steps necessary to protect the house from the elements during weather or keep the house cool in the summer and will enter the guests rooms as necessary.

Coming to seeing the sights?!
- Visiting Alcatraz - Tours sell out during the summer months. BOOK IN ADVANCE - Check availability online and get your tickets!

Visiting From Outside the USA?
Outlet Adapter: For those visiting from outside the USA - REMEMBER to bring an plug adapter. There are different types of electrical wall outlets all over the world. You will need an adapter, unless your country has the same outlet configuration as the USA. Adapter plugs do not convert electricity, they simply allow your device’s plug to fit into a foreign outlet.

My hope is that you find my home feels warm and comfy - a place to relax on your journey. I have a day job, so please understand that I am only available to receive guests after work hours. When inspiration hits, I love to find old things and fix them up. As time allows, I occasionally create small watercolor landscapes or go for a drive in my vintage VW Beetle. Oakland is my hometown, so I know a little history about the local neighborhoods and the Bay Area. If you are looking for a quiet place to rest, look no further. ;-) Please see my three listings: Lovely Spanish Revival Private Room - https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/2396712 Spanish Revival Small Private Room - https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/6000201 Spanish Revival Semi Private Lrg Rm - https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/11553790

Mottos to live by:

- Leave it better than you found it.
- It's never wrong to do the right thing.
- If at first you don't succeed, try, try again... which may now have been superseded by...
- Do, or do not, there is no try. (thank you Yoda!)
