Other things to note
I have recently adopted a sweet, playful dog (a beautiful Saluki rescued from Dubai). He's clean, well-behaved and gaining in confidence from his shyness but affectionate once he's more familiar with someone.

Location

Oakland, California, United States

The neighborhood has a fun mix of students, young professionals, families, retired persons and quite a few ethnicities which gives it a very good "feel".

Though the street is very quiet, it lies parallel to two major streets in the Berkeley -Oakland area so there is a thriving vitality to the area with a lot of cafes, restaurants: (Starry Plough, Pena Cultural Center, Sweet Adeline Bakery/Cafe, The Vault Cafe, Crixa Cakes, Nomad, Jumpin' Java); Grocery Stores: Berkeley Bowl, WholeFoods), Theatre Companies: (Shotgun Players, Berkeley Black Repertory Theatre).

The Berkeley Farmers Market also happens here in the neighborhood on Tuesdays and on the weekends, the well known Ashby Flea Market (which is a lot more than a flea market) takes place at the BART station. Within a 5-minute walk there is much to do!. There is also plenty of street parking.

3-minute walk from Ashby BART! ( 20 minutes to SF!) and many major bus lines that run into both Berkeley, Oakland, Emeryville and San Francisco within 2 blocks (see more in "getting around section"

My name is Erika and I 've now been a host on airbnb for about two years. A professional violinist I am also well-traveled and have always been interested in other cultures as well as traveling so I've really enjoyed meeting some of the wonderful guests that have come to stay with me. My brain has also always been pretty curious so I have a very wide variety of interests from literature, philosophy, archaeology, science, the arts to the natural world (including a great love of animals). I recently adopted a new rescue dog (a Saluki from Dubai) and have occasionally fostered other doggies :). Though I am a vegetarian I have no problems with those around me cooking/eating meat. While I can have a very busy schedule at times, I still love connecting with new people and hearing about their lives through a good conversation. Over the years, I've often been told I'm a good host as I love visitors and also love helping people discover all the "inside" cool places in the Bay Area.

During your stay
I have lived in the UK for 7 years and have many friends from different countries so I get along well with people from many different backgrounds. I have traveled extensively myself so enjoy interacting with people from different places but also appreciate when people need time on their own so am respectful of giving people space.

I am a professional violinist and also have some students with whom i work I am home during most mornings but most afternoons (and some evenings) I am working away from home. Saturdays ( late mornings or early afternoons) I may have a few students at the house.
