A place for the curious and the courteous: a simple, splendid private room in a magical location. Peruse my listing, read the reviews, and above all keep calm.
A friendly challenge to all: beat me in a game of chess and you may win a (sur)prize.
welcome to our sunny house of simplicity. our lovely front garden is strategically isolated from the bustling street of dwight way thanks to the vine-entangled brown wooden fence. venture forth and you'll step onto our porch.
take off your shoes and enter through door A. climb up the stairs and you've arrived to our mid-room which boasts a handsome wooden table and a 23 year old green sofa. A few steps further and you can glimpse the first bathroom. right next to it is your new kingdom.
there are four bedrooms upstairs. you can think of the space beyond your room as a hostel. the kitchen is open for only those who maintain its cleanliness, lol so please just clean up after yourself. we have bikes, longboards and board games. wifi is great SOMETIMES SPOTTY. the doorknob to your room is a little wobbly. the house is cozy. street parking is available (you'll need day passes and I can give you one for free).
Location: 4 blocks to campus. 20 minute walk to Haas. 10 minute walk to the BART, 20 minute ride to San Francisco, Oakland. 45 minutes BART from SFO.
a friendly challenge to all: if you beat me in a game of chess, I may give you a (sur)prize at some point during your stay.
because some folks are... picky here is a list of forewarnings:
(ie why you would want to consider booking elsewhere)
1. you are aware its a COLLEGE STUDENT HOUSE- it is neither perfectly clean nor perfectly dirty, neither perfectly quiet nor perfectly loud. it's a happy medium.
2. you are aware its NOT a hotel, as in its pretty much a hostel.
3. you are curious and strong minded
4. you are aware the hot water may take some time to present itself
5. you are aware the wifi is sometimes spotty
6. you will likely meet 5+ other housemates during your stay.
7. you must clean up after yourself if you use the kitchen
and there you have it. if you don't like it, move on and have a good life. otherwise, whatever comes, welcome aboard and let's get you initiated.
PS long term stays welcome, just start the conversation.
kitchen, bathrooms, living room, porch, garden, balcony.
Interaction with guests
I'll be around as much as you wish
Other things to note
you're welcome to use either of my bikes
Be yourself and barefoot, ideally.
