Although our home is safe & comfortable, we respectfully decline travelers with small children due to the presence of a large staircase from the foyer into the living space. We would not want to see your youngster take a tumble! Also, our home is not adequately "child -proofed". We love kids, but want to avoid any unfortunate accidents. We ask that smokers partake outside (we have a nice front yard perfect for that). We do have regular jobs, and get up each morning for work, so we ask that you try to keep things quiet during late night hours.
We are a married couple, both born & raised in NY, living in Berkeley, CA (SF Bay Area) since the early 1980's. My wife Darlene and I enjoy really good coffee, travel, music, cooking, reading, movies, fine dining, sports, hiking, biking & so many more of the wonderful things life has to offer. Hosting on Airbnb is fun for us because we really try to provide the same excellent hospitality to our guests that we appreciate receiving when we travel. We are bilingual (Spanish).
