Interaktion mit Gästen
We live in the adjacent house, and hope to get to know you as you come and go. We also invite you to join us once a week for an evening of friendship and movie-viewing. However, we know you will probably be busy at the university or your other pursuits and respect your privacy.

We have two Peruvian Hairless dogs. They don't go into your space, at all, but you might find them in front of the house, now and then. By the way, we do not provide you with a parking space, sorry!
Absolutely no smoking of tobacco or any other substances. You are responsible for keeping the apartment clean and tidy while you stay there. For longer stays we will arrange for cleaning every 2 months, at your expense. Protect all wood surfaces from moisture by using coasters or saucers. Always turn off heater and interior lights before leaving the premises. Please be respectful of the neighbors and of our need for quiet in the evenings (no noise after 10:30 please). Please note, storage of "hover-board" devices on premises is strictly prohibited due to fire-safety concerns. Also, if you receive mail here, please make sure you inform the post-office of your change of address when you leave.
Both Edwin and I love to travel, cook (he's a much better cook than I), and we enjoy theater, music, movies and the out-of-doors. I am a Spanish/English healthcare interpreter and a part-time college professor, (I teach Health Education, and focus on linguistic access to healthcare). Edwin is semi-retired. We live part-time in Berkeley (the home you'll be staying in) and part-time in Inverness CA, a small community near the beautiful Point Reyes National Seashore. At home we speak both English and Spanish, and often have friends join us for dinner. We discovered airbnb when we went to Paris a couple of years ago and stayed in an amazing flat. Since then, we have stayed in several other places - both in the US and in Mexico, and have had wonderful experiences both as guests and as hosts. As guests we will take excellent care of your home, in the same way we wish guests to take care of our home!
