The space

This is the upstairs half of an updated Victorian duplex located in a quiet neighborhood, so glorious light and high ceilings are what's in store! Our flat is filled with beautiful original art with karastan rugs on the hardwood floors to add that touch of warmth.

The beds are super comfy with high quality mattresses for a great nights sleep--so you have plenty of energy for work or to explore while you are here. High ceilings, original fixtures and period details, a super deep jetted soaker tub in the bath, and every chef's dream kitchen makes this a fabulous retreat for short or long term.

It's easy to whip up dinner for 10 in this well equipped kitchen that overlooks the rear garden--or a quick breakfast with fresh coffee or tea to enjoy out in the sunny and peaceful courtyard.

Luxury linens cover the beds, accompanied by fat down duvets and pillows (with extra linens for the queen pull out in the living room/library). King bed in the master bedroom, along with a flat screen tv/dvd combo and a comfy deep chair to read in. Beautiful extra long twin bed in the small second sunny bedroom is the perfect bed for an adult or a child. All of the closets and dressers are empty and available for your personal belongings.

Spa bath boasts a deep jetted soaker tub to relax in with a glass of wine, as well as a separate shower. Thirsty towels and two robes that are perfect for lounging on weekends are included. Wifi, internet, cable tv, dvd player, Netflix, and the living room/library includes plenty of books as well as some classic board games and cards to enjoy while you are here.

Internet and wifi are fast.
Laundry + garden shared with downstairs flat.
Private off street parking for one car.

We are rather clean freaks, and the flat is fully cleaned before each guest arrives. We have our cleaner come in, and we personally wash the linens and bedding and make up the beds to make sure everything is clean and crisp and just the way we would want it!

The gorgeously mature rear garden includes a gas grill for a nice and chill weekend bbq, patio heaters, adirondack chairs, citrus trees, and pots of fresh herbs to add to that culinary masterpiece called an omelet. It's also the perfect place for you and your laptop getting some work done during the day. A table with umbrella and comfy chairs to work in. Wifi works great, and it's quiet enough to hear yourself think.

Our safe neighborhood has plenty of street parking, large and mature trees, and is five blocks from the beach (hello perfect morning walk) and six blocks from groceries, coffee shops, restaurants galore, post office and drugstore, as well as several parks. Regular bus line is three blocks, bus to downtown SF is also three blocks (they say 20 minutes), BART is close, g+ bus is five blocks, and the ferry to SF makes it fun and easy to check out the city while you are here--or stay on the island and go back and forth for that conference you are in town for.

The Oakland hills that are across the freeway let you get close up and personal with towering redwood filled forests and amazing hiking trails that are off the beaten path. Cool bars and restaurants are very close, as is yoga, pilates, and the best fresh made ice cream in the area (Tucker's--usually has a line). Lots of super cute neighborhoods to explore with your dog--and make sure to check out all the wonderful gardens you pass on the way. (I am a gardener, what can say?)

Oakland Airport is ten minutes by car, SFO is 40 minutes by BART train. The bus that's 3 blocks away goes directly to BART as well, so it's easy to use BART for Oakland or SFO. We are close enough to Silicon Valley to commute via the new bus that goes directly to g+ headquarters.

We have put together a fat binder filled with all the fun things to check out, from all the award winning local wineries to the huge art + antique fair on the first Sunday of the month (Grandpa and I saw Diane Keaton there last year), hiking, dog walks, day trips, our fave local hangouts, as well as suggestions for what to check out during your stay.

LONG TERM OR DOGS: We do rent by the week and month, and we accept long term rentals for several months up to a year as well. For long term rentals, there is a security deposit of $1000, as well as a pet deposit of $595 if you are bringing your dog along for the fun. When you are inquiring, please let us know if you are bringing along your pet or planning on long term so we can make sure to include the security deposit or the pet deposit in your fee.

1) This is not a flat that is appropriate for young children because of the two staircases. If you have a child under the age of 8 or so, we will have to regretfully decline your booking. Sorry about that, and safety first!

2) YES we are indeed dog friendly (for MOST dogs, please check with us to make sure your dog qualifies), so if you are bringing along your dog, please let us know as there is a pet deposit of $595.

As well, we have a pet kit for you--water and food bowls, snacks, etc, to make your furry family member feel at home. PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY: your dog is NOT allowed on any of the furniture EVER, including beds, couches, chairs, stools, ottomans, etc. If your dog is on the furniture, we must have it professionally cleaned, which means that we will be charging you for that cleaning, which quite typically runs at least $450 if not more.

Please understand that we want to be able to continue allowing dogs and their people to stay in a great place like this, and other guests expect to sit on the couch or bed or whatever and find it clean and free of dog hair or dog smell or dog whatever! So be cool and make sure your dog follows the rules and all will be great.

Please read the house rules regarding dogs--the deposit and what we expect of you as a good dog owner (poop pickup in the rear garden, etc) and what we expect of your dog as well!

3) NO SMOKING anywhere on the property--either indoors or out.

4) CHECK IN is 5pm or after, CHECK OUT is 11am.

5) Please bring your photo id as we will check it.

6) If you are considering our flat, please complete and verify your profile. We are more comfortable hosting new people in our flat when we know more about you. So please tell us a little about yourself and the reason for your visit. Also, our flat remains available until you or someone else reserves it with airbnb by submitting a formal reservation through the site. Thanks in advance and we look forward to meeting you soon!
