This is a sunny, extra large room with tall gabled ceilings, lots of light, and beautiful surrounding greenery. This charming, historic William Morris style home was designed by noted Bay Area architect John Hudson Thomas in 1927 for deans at nearby Mills College deans.

This is a spacious sanctuary in a semi-urban setting with lots of trees.

Boendet
This is a room fit for a princess!

The ultra spacious room is designed with soaring ceilings and generous windows from light on three sides.

You enter from the second floor hallway, passing through a Hobbit style peaked door to go into the room.

The room itself is L shaped and measures 12 x 12 in the main part with an additional area that measures 8 x 8.

Each window looks out at trees and greenery. The view to the east is a commanding one; the view to the west includes bay views.

The shared bath - with tub and shower, etc. - is just 2 steps away, down the hall.

The room is spectacular - charming, bright and airy, and quite lovely.

This house (and room) are a Doll's House version of the famed architect's own house which is in Kensington (California).

Your bed is furnished with high quality linens, cotton quilts and comforters and a down comforter (real down).

We are unable to host two people in a room. Due to Covid please visit with others off the property. Airbnb does not cover your guests.

Gästers tillgång
The extra large bedroom includes a compact frig (3 cu ft) with tiny freezer, a microwave, electric kettle and toaster.

You will also have access to the bathroom.

IN ROOM AMENITIES

We provide an electric kettle, a toaster, a microwave and a large compact frig in each room along with coffee and tea along with drip coffee filter holder, filters and teapot. You'll also get a plate, bowls, silverware and napkins.

MANDATORY COVID POLICIES
Re COVID: we observe social distancing and mask wearing within six feet of another person (mandatory). Plan on wearing a mask outside of your room.

BATHROOM

We have rules for using the bathroom which include cleaning up after you shower (a one minute cleaning for the tub is mandatory) and a basic "Leave No Trace" requirement.

CLEANING SUPPLIES

We have bleach wipes, cleaning sprays and bleach sprays in the bathroom for all to use. We use Puretergent cleaner, a non toxic, eco friendly spray for general cleaning and Chlorox bleach cleaner spray when needed. As bleach is toxic, we try to use it only on tub and tiled walls.

While we clean the bathroom daily, we also can't clean every time someone uses the bathroom or showers, so we must ask you to help!

MAKEUP

We provide makeup wipes for removing makeup. Please use makeup wipes so that we can preserve our beautiful linens.

AIR FLOW

For air flow, we try to keep the doors and windows open as much as weather permits to keep air flow at maximum levels.

LAUNDRY

The washer and dryer are available for $10 per load. We use non-toxic, eco friendly laundry soap (Puretergent, made by our friends), bleach and borax. We also have a few toxic spot removers (Shout, etc.) Due to Covid, we are happy to take your laundry and wash and dry it. We do not allow guests to use the machines. (We're very picky about what products we use in them and from experience know that doing it ourselves is the best way for us to protect it from products like dryer sheets, fabric softeners, etc.)

KITCHEN AND DINING ROOM NOT INCLUDED

Due to Airbnb’s ideas of kitchens - I e they should be spotless at all times - we, as regular people without a full time maid - are unable to offer the use of our kitchen. We also cannot permit guests in our dining room. Please respect those boundaries.

ENTRY WAY

Though we have solar path lighting, you may want to additionally use your cell phone after dark to light your way from the street to the house. The path is on a downward slope and has some stairs at certain sections.

OVERALL

The house is amazing and the room are underpriced, but please do not expect it to be the same as you would find in a $200 Bed and Breakfast. (Some people do.)

HELP US HELP YOU

We love guest feedback during your stay, so please communicate with us while you are here. We'll do everything we can to make your stay enjoyable! We would rather find out about your comfort while you are and we can help rather than afterwards in a review. Don't be shy!

WINE AND WINE TASTING

Also, since I am a wine writer (I am the senior editor of Slow Wine Guide, part of Slow Food), I have lots of fine wine. I am happy to supply a complimentary bottle of wine during your stay. (If you don't imbibe, I offer a complimentary bottle of house sparkling water.) I am also happy to offer private tastings for guests for a fee or teach you about organic or biodynamically grown wines (for a fee).

Oakland, Kalifornien, USA

The area - called Millsmont - is a neighborhood that is almost a secret in Oakland. Known mostly to locals, it's on a hillside near Mills College. Our immediate neighbors include a ferry boat captain, a Mission mural painter, and a chiropractor. Almost all of the buildings on our street are single family, middle class homes ($600,000+ in the Bay Area) occupied by long time residents. These include Asian, Latino, black, and white families - we are the most ethnically diverse zip code in the Bay Area.

I am a writer/interactive media/digital strategist and former documentary filmmaker. Easy going, movie loving, connoisseur of life! I also write about organically grown wine and can tell you everywhere to go in wine country. I'm also a former travel writer and know the Bay Area well after living here for 30+ years. I'm well traveled, having spent time in India (all over), Italy, Greece, England and France. Re a negative review from Lacou: I'm sorry to say, I didn't think it was good karma for me to respond to the person named Lacou who wrote a disapproving review. But now I see I really do need to respond. She booked at my place in May (at the last minute) for three weeks, but never came here and never met me. She took an instant dislike to me on the phone for reasons that are not entirely clear to me. It seemed to revolve around her setting the time and terms of her stay, in violation of Airbnb policies. She wanted to come five hours earlier than stated arrival time. I told her I could take her luggage then but that we needed time to clean the room. I also told her we would need to swap a better bed into her room midway through her stay and offered her a pro-rated, hourly fee to compensate her for the estimated two hours it would take us. She also had 10 days advance notice of the bed swap. She wanted half price for the room for that day. I declined since she would only be inconvenienced for a few hours at most. She was very very rude and kept insisting that she would cancel the reservation. She did not appear to understand the strict cancelation policy would not result in any refund to her. Then she started threatening me that she would write a bad review if I did not refund her booking ($1400). I reported the threats to Airbnb help immediately and told them I was concerned. They contacted Lacou and talked to her about my long track record as a good host and about how many people had been happy to be guests here. I'm sorry Lacou was so unhappy (and writes in her review things that are untrue - the princess story was about someone else would stayed here, and had unrealistic expectations about host duties - like thinking I was her bellman). I still don't understand how a "guest" who never comes to the property is allowed to threaten a host (in writing on the Airbnb platform) and to post a bad review. But oh well. Moving on...and hoping for happier guests!
