My house is lovely and I will provide you with a clean, eco-friendly, safe place to stay while you are visiting Oakland. I'm open to everyone; safe space.


Send an inquiry rather than a booking request, so my calendar isn't blocked. Trust me on this, friendly inquiries get way more bookings than outright requests. Write as if you are asking to stay in someone's home rather than a hotel. I only host guests who demonstrate good communication skills.

Le logement

This is a spacious, sunny, single-family, two-bedroom, one bath, home in North Oakland right by Berkeley, which means it is about equidistant from downtown Berkeley, Rockridge, Temescal, and Emeryville (I walk to these places all the time), with easy public transportation access to downtown Oakland and to San Francisco. It is a 1923 split-level California Bungalow, but is not drafty and damp like so many of them.

Your private bedroom has a queen size bed, closet with a dresser, desk and chair, and night stand.

I have a greywater system from the shower and laundry and rainwater catchment for my vegetable and fruit tree garden (you won't notice any of these things unless you are looking for them). I compost and recycle and have very energy efficient appliances. It is all very seamless and you won't even notice.

Accès des voyageurs

You have access to the whole house, including a very comfy couch to watch your netflix shows (you can use my account) on a flat-screen T.V. I expect you to use my kitchen as much as you would like (I am vegetarian but do not maintain a strictly vegetarian kitchen; in other words, cook what you would like). I don't have a microwave.

The bird-filled backyard features a fire-pit - I can make a backyard campfire happen upon prior arrangement - and I have a bbq grill and a outdoor propane grill you can use. These items are not generally set-up during the winter.

Échanges avec les voyageurs

I am at work all day but often home on the evening and weekends, and always available to help you with local advice and decision making - I've been here for 25 years! Weekends especially I am often home trying to catch-up on garden work.

The cat is one of the softest you will meet and is very friendly if he thinks there might be a lap involved. He doesn't go in the guest bedroom. He is outdoors a most of the time so I don't think the house is very allergenic.

I am a good communicator and I expect all my guests to be as well.

Autres remarques

I only accept requests from those who have provided verification, a photo, and tell me why they are visiting. No third-party reservations or from anyone who hasn't demonstrated good communication skills. Priority goes to people on a mission: visiting the East Bay, here for work, school, activism, or love, are on a bike tour, or have some compelling/unusual story.

I'm flexible. Want to have friends over? Need a longer stay? Need a place to leave some stuff while you go on an out-of-town excursion? Let's just communicate with each other and work it out.

I almost never book more than a couple weeks with someone I haven't met yet, but you are welcome to ask; if we agree to a month-long stay, we can negotiate a price.

I rented the extra room in Jon's house for one week when I was visiting labs in Berkeley. The house is in North Oakland, 12minutes waling from the Ashby BART station, reaching UCB campus is easily done in 30 minutes. Jon's house is great, there is a garden with a vegetable patch, the eco friendly atmosphere suited me really well and I felt completely at home. The bed is comfortable and the room is facing west so it has plenty of sun in the afternoon.

My stay at Jon's place was great! He was a friendly and gracious host and the room was clean and comfortable. Also, the neighborhood was quiet and within walking distance to the Bart. If I'm ever in the area, I'd love to stay again!

Jon's place is value for money. Compared to a down town Airbnb or hotel it's half price. Expect a 20-30 minute commute to down town San Francisco. Jon is also good for a chat about the local area etc. and a really down to earth person.

Jon, was a great host: communicative and helpful. The neighborhood is very peaceful and within walking distance to the Ashby Bart stop, 30 minutes to downtown. He is directly in between downtown Oakland and Berkley. Easy direct transportation to each, but with none of the hustle and bustle of either. Both are a little more than a mile away, so while walkable you will be tired if you walk there and around the cities. The house is lovely and Jon lives his eco-friendly values. I had a great stay.

I work at a public natural resource agency that is a water/wastewater utility. I've been an analyst for several of our high-profile programs. I also am involved in environmental projects around town.
I put effort into making my house nice and eco-friendly, and enjoy puttering around in my garden.
