Our sunny bedroom with queen-size memory foam bed is at the back of our home, away from traffic with a window to the backyard. The bathroom is shared with one person (who is usually gone before 6am). There is a second half bath that you can have all to yourself.
We are 2 blocks from lively Telegraph Ave (bars, restaurants, art galleries, and shops) and 14 min from 19th St BART. Free street parking available in front of the house or around the block.
Note: a cute little pup lives here!
We are avid travelers and users of Airbnb, and we've experienced rentals that were amazing and not-so amazing. With those experiences in mind, we've tried to furnish our place with functionality and aesthetics, especially since we live here too! For those with pet allergies, please note that "we" includes one sweet little terrier mix rescued pup.
Our house is a short walk away from the bars and restaurants of Uptown Oakland. There is also a street festival two blocks away from our place on the first Friday of each month. We are a 14 min walk away from the 19th Street BART (the Bay Area subway system) station.
Our home is set up with keyless entry. We will send you details on how to enter the house after you book.

We're happy to provide recommendations in the East Bay and San Francisco, give you a tour of the area (if we're not too busy), or stay out of your hair – whatever you prefer.
We love our home and hope you do, too. With that in mind, please treat our home as you would your own.

Me in one word: Wanderlust. My partner, Austen, and I absolutely love traveling, particularly to big cities and/or unique spots. We usually plan at least two international trips a year with some domestic trips in between. You'll find us taking public transit and biking, visiting museums, hiking, and eating like locals. We are shoestring travelers, but spare the expense when necessary/worth it. Some of my favorite travel spots include Paris, Nice, Cinque Terre, Madrid, Tokyo, Singapore, Vancouver, and Buenos Aires.
We really enjoy hosting friends and family. I'd like to own/run a bed and breakfast one day, so hosting on Airbnb gets me one step closer to realizing that dream.
