The space

Our house is all love. AK works from home so we take great care in cleanliness, vibe, and functionality! Logistically- three bedrooms, two bathrooms, big living area and kitchen make our house a super welcoming space to gather and share a meal. We recently re-did the backyard and it has become a great place to lounge and garden.

Guest access

All common spaces and washer dryer!

Interaction with guests

We pride ourselves on being normal and hilarious humans. AK has been an AirBnB host to over 200 people and is still friends with many of his guests from all over the world! That said - we respect your privacy, your desire for individual adventures and your own plans. Want to hang? Cool. Too busy? That's rad - we should be working anyways ;)

The neighbourhood

We've been in this neighborhood over 6 years now. It's urban and gritty and real life. Oakland is Oakland - beautiful and a struggle. This is a mostly residential space but everything is a five minute drive or a 20 minute walk to all of the city food and hipster bars you could ever want!

Getting around

We are a 15 minute walk to the MacArthur BART station, next to lots of bus lines and we've got plenty of street parking for your car, RV, boat, tricycle, space craft.

Other things to note

We have two super fantastic dogs: Cooper and Lentil. They are sweet and energetic and you'll want to steal them. Sometimes we might want you to ;) kidding, sort of.

This is a meat free household. For sure can't cook it in the house, more flexible on you bringing in left overs.

Do people still smoke? It's a shame! It's our preference that you don't smoke at all, but there are spaces outside for you to do so if necessary. We'll fabreeze you down when you re-enter.

House Rules
Check in is anytime after 2PM

We are a meat free household (raw or left overs!). Katie and I are both vegans and prefer to not have any animal products in the house.

Other than that...just be a grown up and respect our space. Don't set the house on fire or leave weird stains in the shower... Please.

I love good food, beautiful beaches, intense fitness programs and meeting new people. I'm a proud queer person and ally - so please be knowledgeable and awesome about that if/when requesting to stay in my home.

My dog, Cooper, is THE raddest animal on the planet. We are scarily similar - mostly when it comes to our attention span and charm ;) My wife would like me to add that I have second dog, Lentil who is equally as wonderful (I play favorites, what can I say).

I love to host! I am all about hanging out with the people who stay here. You're cool. I'm cool. Let's get thai food.
