Great check-in experience
90% of recent guests gave the check-in process a 5-star rating.
Outstanding hospitality
14 recent guests complimented Laurie for outstanding hospitality.
This private room at the back of the house has it's own bathroom and shower. It is a perfect place for relaxing.

We have a great neighborhood that is funky, urban, diverse and representative of Berkeley and Oakland eclectic architecture and creativity (as well as lack thereof).

Great for walking in the dense residential area. Easy to hop buses to get downtown Oakland, Berkeley or San Francisco.

The space
The room is large and airy with a view of the backyard. My backyard is a mix of lawn, fruit trees, vegetables, native plants, etc. Taken together, this mix provides excellent wildlife habitat. You can hear the birds chirping. It's amazingly quiet for the middle of an urban ar

Guest access
Most of the main house is reserved for me and my roommates. But the AirBnB space is ample, with the private bathroom and huge back yard guests are welcome to lounge in.

Other things to note
I have the most wonderful dog. She is very well trained and does not jump or slobber on you. She will take all the love you can give. But for people who don't want the canine attention, I just tell her to "go" she walks away.
We have a hammock and chairs in the back yard.
There are 3 other adults with their own bedrooms in the house. Therefore, we don't include kitchen access.

You have a small refrigerator and microwave.

The Neighborhood
Our home is in the Golden Gate Neighborhood - sometimes called Paradise Park. It's on the Oakland/Berkeley/Emeryville border. Sunny and friendly, I’ve been here for 13 years and I’ve always felt at home. My neighbors have front yards with vegetable beds or native plants or golf-course quality grass or just weeds (sorry, that’s me, but I do mow them so they kinda look like grass from far away). It’s a really nice place to walk on your way to the coolest and grooviest cafes in Oakland. Or Starbucks. As for restaurants, we have everything from a vegan breakfast diner to the old standby MacDonald’s. We even have Karakoke. Aptly named “Paradise Park,” our neighborhood is magical. Great weather, friendly people and a good vibe of respect.

I've been travelling all my life, hostels, couches (or floors), luxury hotels, you-name-it. When I bought this house 11 years ago, I knew I was home. However, it has put a damper on my plane-hopping lifestyle. But I really don't really miss it all that much, I'm happy chatting with neighbors and in general I'm a gregarious, positive and optimistic person. I live in Oakland. - Why do I need to go on vacation to see the sites? They're all right here!

Guests are welcome to their privacy but we do enjoy conversation as well. As a 30 year resident of the Bay Area and having lived in my home for 13 years, I can tell you about the history and special tricks that might help you out while you're here.
