Very nice and safe neighbourhood for a nice evening walk after a busy day in the city. Large guest room and added bonus of washing machine and dryer usage. We enjoyed the garden very much and the squirrels and the deer at night time.

Interaction with guests

I live upstairs and tend to travel a lot, but when I am around I would be more than happy to help with anything you need, or simply sit out back and enjoy some conversation with you if you'd like. I'm well traveled and love getting to know people. I have an indoor cat named Cocoa, but she doesn't go into the guest suite or laundry room so allergens should be an issue.

About Josip

I'm a well-educated, first generation American of Croatian descent, fluent in four languages (English, Croatian, Japanese, Spanish), have lived overseas for several years, and am well travelled. I've been described as having an adventurous spirit, a huge heart, and a constant smile. In September 2014 I moved from the East Coast to the Bay Area for a job I absolutely love, and now I excitedly call Oakland my home.
