This house exceeded expectations in every way. I would live here permanently if I could. Private, clean, lots of nearby food. It was great. Thanks Janice!

The home was great! The design and overall layout of the house is intriguing and was done mostly done by Janice's son Charles, who had hosted us while Janice was away on vacation. We didn't see each other much, as my girlfriend and I had a ton of plans but when we did interact he was very helpful and thoughtful. If you're looking for a place near San Francisco to stay you may be able to find a place closer to the city but it'd be hard to find something with the same value of this gem. Nonetheless, the location is near a BART station, making Oakland, SF and other neighboring cities accessible. Lyft rides were also fairly priced. The bedroom comes with a comfortable bed and access to a wonderful private bathroom, with the view from the deck just a few steps outside of the bedroom door. Highly recommend Janice's home!

We stayed at Janice's home while waiting for student housing. Janice was out of town, and Charles, her son, hosted us. As it turns out, he was also one of the designers of this energy efficient home. The room was nice and sunny, and had its own private bathroom. The granite tile in the bathroom is lovely. There is a private common area upstairs just outside the bedroom. There is also a private roof-top patio just outside the bedroom door as well, with lovely views, and is a great place to sit and relax. While we were there, Charles was an excellent host. They also have a really great garden out back. Overall, we had a peaceful, relaxing stay. We highly recommend staying here if you are traveling through the area or are in the Oakland / SF area for work or pleasure.

Janice was away during my stay, but her son was an excellent host. The home is lovely, and my cat and I were quite happy with the room. The lack of AC was annoying on one or two particularly warm days, but most of the time it wasn't an issue at all. I would highly recommend this listing to a friend.

Janice User ProfileJanice is a superhost.

I am a retired Christian woman with a sweet dog and a shy cat. I love to cook and often volunteer with my church. I'm from Hayward originally and have lived in both Alaska and Texas. I enjoy visiting my three adult children and other family regularly in the southwest, California and elsewhere, often driving because I love road trips. I love my house (built by my son) and enjoy sharing it with others whenever I can.
