You will be staying in the top level of a sweet three level loft that includes queen bed, night stands, closet space, a desk, bathroom and balcony access. You can park in front of the house or in the driveway. Enjoy reverse osmosis drinking water.

The space

The Space is the top level of a beautiful three level loft that is just a few minutes walk from the heart of the Emeryville Tech/Biotech area. Note that because it is a loft, there are NO doors separating the different parts of the house (other than for bathroom and bedrooms); no worries as I wear headphones a lot.

Guest access

Guests have access to top level bedroom and bathroom. On the the bottom level, guests have access to the living room, bathroom, dining and kitchen areas. The washer/dryer are available for use. The second level is off limits.

Interaction with guests

I am cordial and if the timing is right, open for conversation. I will be present for your stay on the bottom two levels. At times, I may also need to come up to the third level to grab something from the desk or take a shower; I will ask before I come up the stairs.

Dave is great and his place was exactly as described. He's a warm friendly person and I'm glad we had a chance to talk a bit. The place was quiet, check-in was easy and parking was not a problem. Great place to stay!

Really central location. Near Amtrak , bus lines and restaurants in San Pablo/Emeryville. Dave made check in easy and ensured room was prepped and comfortable. Great stay.

I liked staying with Dave, he has a friendly easy-going spirit. The room is huge and the bed is comfortable. There are many delicious restaurants nearby and it's even walkable to Berkeley.

Dave's place is super clean and a great value. I never saw Dave, but we messaged check-in arrangements and evertything went smoothly. Everything I needed was left out for me. As the description says, it's a true loft--your bedroom isn't closed off from the rest of the place, and any lights and sounds will carry to anyone else staying there. The neighborhood is urban but pretty quiet and a little off the beaten track--it's about halfway between Temescal and the big stores and restaurants in the Emeryville plazas. Everything you need to know is in the description, and you can't beat the price.
