Depends upon you! You want privacy? You'll get it. Do you need recommendations for restaurants or activities? Just ask. We are close at hand to answer any of your questions about the area. In the event that we're not present during check-in, we'll leave you instructions on how to access the house.
Recreational activities abound: Marin county, by car, is half an hour. Berkeley Hills beckon hikers and runners. Lawerance Hall of Science. Berkeley Botanical Gardens. San Francisco is reachable BART (subway) or by the F bus. BART is fast and convenient. The bus is slower but the ride is more scenic.
No smoking please.
INSIDE THE HOUSE:
We prefer if shoes are removed upon entering the house. (We do not wear our shoes indoors and prefer if our guests do not, either, but we are not too stringent about this.)
PARKING: (see The Space and House Manual)
Please let us know as soon as possible if we can help you in anyway, or if anything isn't working.
