BECAUSE OF COVID-19, I ASK THAT YOU CONTACT ME BY PHONE AS SOON AS YOU BOOK TO DISCUSS PROCEDURES. THANK YOU.

Hi!

Thank you for considering my home. I so enjoy providing a great space for friends, family and co-workers. I've met people doing fabulously interesting things and coming together for beautiful occasions. While almost all of my Airbnb experiences have been wonderful, a few have jeopardized my ability to continue to share. Out of respect for my friends/neighbors and the community we have together, I ask you please not to choose my home if you intend to have a party. Thanks so much for your understanding. Okay, now on to the good stuff!

I love sharing the home I have created amidst my art (collected locally and while traveling) and the furnishings that my grandparents acquired from furniture-maker friends in mid-century Montreal. I grew up in the French Canadian city eating poutine before it was cool and skiing in the Laurentians while they were still cold.

I love being surrounded by wood - the hardwood floors, the polished grain of teak furniture and the tall abstract sculpture of a woman and a child (I think :)) crafted by my beloved friend Ethel in 1950s San Francisco. The wood grain glows shades of brown with the morning sun and in the afternoon, the light leaves the apartment feeling calm - the perfect time for a cup of tea or glass of wine, both of which I have left for you. I'm convinced it is the connection with nature that allows both me and my guests to relax as soon as we enter the apartment. Truly. I love welcoming people in and sharing the moment their expression softens as they see where they will be staying.

The space is large and airy. It is an Edwardian with French doors separating the living room (into which the front door opens) and the second bedroom (which is in the middle of the apartment). This makes for lots of flexible sleeping arrangements by night and wonderful open sharing place when you want to hang out during the day and evening.

I love my neighbors and we keep the building and backyard very quiet. Please only choose my place, if you enjoy serenity. (It's not monk-like. Just no loud music.)

The back bedroom is down a hallway at the back of the apartment. There are doors on both ends of the hallways, so it is very private. This bedroom has a queen SleepNumber bed, so two sleepers can each adjust the bed to their soft v. firm level of comfort. I just got a heated mattress pad for this bed!!

The bathroom is next to this back bedroom.

The back bedroom looks out on a large yard with picnic tables, some trees, a bed for vegetable garden, but not always a vegetable garden and some random Buddhas. It is a shared space that you are welcome to use from 10am-10pm. Please keep in mind it is shared and that noise travels. It's not appropriate for parties.

The second bedroom - the one in which I prefer to sleep when I am not Airbnbing has a comfy daybed with a new Sealy mattress and a heated mattress pad! As mentioned above, it is in the front of the apartment between the kitchen and the living room. One of the nice things is that it is separated by a hall, a door and a kitchen from the back bedroom, so there is a lot of privacy between the main sleeping spaces. The room has ample floor space for a queen-size top-of-the-line Aerobed, if you have a big group.

I think this second room was technically the dining room back in Edwardian days. There is a dining room table in this room so it works very well for a dining area if you want to use it that way. (I eat in the small, newly renovated kitchen.) The table has leaves and can seat at least eight. Recently, eight people opened the leaves and played Magic: The Gathering all night for a bachelor party night. That's the most creative use of my dining room table that I know of.

The living room has new, comfy sofa sleeper - a double. Two more couches provide hang out space during the day and sofas to crash on at night. There is also a coffee table that my grandparents had made. It's my favorite thing, so please please use coasters! (I made a lot of the coasters from my own travel photos.)

My neighbors are awesome and, in a pinch, my upstairs neighbor is there to help. I appreciate your keeping my neighbors in mind. Sound travels easily up into the other apartments. No loud music please. (Guests have had a parties at my place, even though my listing prohibits it, so now I mention it here, as well.)

Brand-new kitchen.

Easy street parking.

PETS - Please contact me if you have a pet you would like to bring.

Emergency - It is fairly accepted in this area that there will be another earthquake. While it is likely it will happen, it is unlikely you will be here. Just in case, I have prepared a basic emergency kit and water and am developing information and instructions on what to do in the 'event of such an event' (I had to say that. Gertrude Stein is from Oakland and btw... there's lots and lots of here here.)

I want you to be as safe, happy and comfortable in my home, no matter what the circumstances. In general, a 1920s wooden building like mine should fair well in an earthquake. I was in a similar building during the 1986 quake and it just kind of felt like the Poseidon Adventure for a two minutes. I lost a few potted plants and that was it. It's really about making sure you have water and food, which I've done. You might want to spend just a few minutes on FEMA's website looking at the basic todos and not todos in an earthquake.

Gjestetilgang
Wifi. Laundry. New Kitchen. Full apartment to yourself. Sunny outdoor space shared with three other units. Apples in tree out back, when nature provides. There's a vegetable garden tended by the lovely neighbors upstairs, so I can't offer access to its delights, but you can enjoy its presence. Street parking is easy.

Andre ting det er verdt å merke seg
Street parking is easy. The street is residential and tree-lined, with a pleasant 8-10 minute walk to Rockridge cafes and shops. It's a little over a mile straight shot along Telegraph to UC Berkeley and just under a 15 minute, very pleasant walk to BART. Enjoy!

Oakland, California, USA

My apartment is in Rockridge just off Telegraph between Temescal and UC Berkeley - a mile to each.

Rockridge is a fashionable, trendy neighborhood/village with wonderful restaurants, cafes - Philz set off the pour-over revolution, Coles to hang with the locals and La Farine for yummy pastry and bread - grocery stores (Safeway, Trader Joe's and independent meat market and fruit sellers) and shops (wine tasting, specialty liquor, candy) only a few blocks away. Sweet, quiet neighborhood. Mostly single family homes. Lots of trees.

Temescal is a mile from my place on Telegraph between 52nd to 40th Streets. (I'm right between Temescal and UC, just off Telegraph). It is trendier, hipper, edgier (you got it) than Rockridge. I recommend Cholita Linda for extraordinary tacos and salads Caribbean style. You will also find good Korean, Thai fusion, outdoor Beer garden, Burmese...and all other kinds of lusciousness brought to the Bay by immigrants like me (but from more colorful culinary traditions - poutine being all shades of beige and brown.)

Very pleasant 10 min walk to Rockridge commercial district.
Less than a mile to Whole Foods, Trader Joes, Safeway, independent fruit, meat and fish markets. A mile to Berkeley campus.

I have been in the Bay Area for 20+ years. I have worked predominantly in social justice and the environment. I really like for people to be happy. So, whether it's at work, or in my airbnb, I try hard to please. Good communication is important to me. I love traveling and talking to strangers. I am a big camper/backpacker and have a Buddhist practice. I have enjoyed both staying with Airbnb hosts and being a host. Most recently, I have stayed in Airbnbs from Tehachapi, CA, USA to Jerusalem, Israel. I founded a company called Prosper Street Technologies to market the Wave, a computer keyboard I invented.

Malvi and I both monitor our phones 24/7. If we don't respond to a text, we probably missed it. Please call! We are more likely to hear a call than a text, especially if we are sleeping.

There have been occasions when people have mentioned small things to me after their visit - wanting a face cloth or mentioned they were hot or cold - or I will notice people bought some house supply. I have endeavored to think of EVERYTHING you might need and I have stocked up. If you need anything at all, please don't hesitate to ask. I want your stay to be relaxing and comfortable.

Occasionally, I go on Buddhist retreats or backpacking. I will let you know if that is the case and Malvi will always be there to cover for me. 510-944-9468.
