Hello! We have truly enjoyed creating a space that is welcoming and comfortable for our guests. We love hosting on Airbnb and have had some wonderful experiences as Airbnb guests - most recently during trips to Tulum, Montreal, Spain & Morocco. Our guest suite is a private, indoor-outdoor space that is separated from the main house by a deck. We simplified the guest spaces to make it possible to follow cleaning and sanitizing best practices during this time. The spaces are now more minimal but still feel cozy. We were students at UC Berkley and lived in San Francisco (and got married & had a baby) before moving to this special spot. We appreciate the wonderful diversity of people, food, art & nature found in Oakland and having been in the Bay Area for many years, we know it well. We are more than happy to make recommendations for local restaurants, bookstores, shops, classes, hiking trails...looking for something else? We could probably make a recommendation for that too. :) We are available if anything comes up and the separation between the main house and cottage provides our guests with space and privacy. We offer a 10% discount for stays a month or longer.

During your stay

One of us can almost always be here to provide keys and say the first hello. This is currently happening with a mask on and a distance of 6 feet - not super friendly but we will be smiling behind the mask :). We will arrange to leave keys in the lockbox if we are not able to meet you in person. We live in the main house behind the cottage, are currently working from home. We are available to answer questions or address any issues but also provide privacy and give our guests space.
