I hope to find a quiet non-smoker who would enjoy a rent free month at my home with my little dog. Glenview is a very pretty part of Oakland, with nearby shops and restaurants on Park Blvd.,Lakeshore and in Montclair just up the hill, and only 2-3 miles from downtown Oakland's Lake Merritt, City Center, Chinatown and Jack London Square. If you have a car we are about 12 minutes from Berkeley and about 18 from San Francisco. The neighborhood is handy for public transport to downtown Oakland--about 2+ miles by bus to BART-and from there you can get around the Bay Area. Express buses to SF go down nearby Park Blvd. People say the house is charming. It has comfortable rooms with high ceilings, an enclosed backyard with a brick patio (which could use a little help from someone who is a better gardener than I), and a piano if you like music. All the ususal stuff too like washer/dryer, fully equipped kitchen, beds and linens. My dog gets 2 nice 30 minute walks a day and, although she likes to go shopping or on errands with me, is happy otherwise to rest near wherever people are. Friends have offered to take her to their houses, but I thought it would be nice if she could stay home. Would prefer someone who will be around the house for much of the day. Our friendly neighbors will help you keep an eye on things. I would want to meet you and show you the house before you start. References please.
