We are hoping that you'll be happy in your room and enjoy the backyard on sunny days and warm nights. I work at home most of the time so prefer the privacy of the rest of our house.
You will hear the pitter patter of little dog feet and intermittent barking, but Daisy and Pixie are so adorable you may want to request regular visits from them or play ball in the back yard. Generally the room will afford quiet at night and bird song in the morning.

The neighborhood affords walks that showcase pretty houses, gardens, and hills for viewing the west bay. While many neighbors have lived here for decades, the yet-to-be gentrified business "district" is recovering from 2008 and currently limited in variety. But there is a coffee shop two short blocks away, an African restaurant, a Carnegie library, and multiple convenience stores nearby. There may be more on offer in the future. We are also about 12 minutes drive from the Joaquin Miller park along Skyline Blvd.
We are located in the historic Melrose-Fairfax district which is minutes away from Mills College, the Laurel district, 580, 880, Fruitvale and Colosseum Bart stations, and the charming city of Alameda. The 47 bus line to Fruitvale Bart is a 5 minute walk.
Pet has to be calm, easy going and ought meet our two little dogs - who will be obsessed with curiosity otherwise.
Quiet time 10pm - 9 am. Please no music or loud conversation during these hours. We have head phones if you need them!

Richard earned his BFA from Sheffield College in England. Which is the same one that Nick Park, director of “Chicken Run” and Wallace and Gromit movies, attended. I got my BFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts/Tufts U. In 2000 we met "online" and saw “Chicken Run" on our first official date in SF. This should explain some things.
I am a graphic designer for web and print and also, sometimes a painter. Richard has abandoned his dream of doing 3D animation and is now creating an App in his spare time. Otherwise he’s worked in the bicycle industry for 16 years. For fun we both work at the SF Nourse Theater as people wranglers.
Last year we moved to Oakland from SF and are delighted to have a room available for weary and excited travelers and transplants. I’ve always enjoyed connecting with people everywhere. Oakland is a brave, but not-new land of transplants from SF and established families. It's rich with history.
We look forward to meeting you and your people, whether they be human or another kind of animal. We are both animal lovers.
