About

I'm a professor at the University of San Francisco who will be going on sabbatical beginning June 2022 for one year. I commute from our home to San Francisco several times a week - by bike and BART, or by bus (which picks up in front of the house). This home can be suitable for those who desire to work at any of the East Bay universities (e.g. Berkeley) mentioned above (Mills College is a short walk), or those in San Francisco as well. We had an exceptional experience renting via sabbatical homes while in New York, and would love to find the right match for our home. The mediterranean style home was built in 1925. It still has its original charm and hardwood floors. The sun room in the back doubles as an office space which opens to a very large garden space with mature fruit trees and a trampoline We think that the best match would be a couple or a family with youngish 1-2 kids, who can make full use of the large backyard, and/or for someone who desires growing vegetables in the large garden spaces. The neighborhood is very family friendly, with young kids in most homes. We have two children, 5-8, who share the second bedroom. We utilize the sun room in the back as a family room and office space, equipped with a desk and printer. The home comes fully furnished. We can make games / toys / bicycles etc... available should this match your desires. We also have a car that is available.

House Sitting

I may need help while I am away

I may need help with my pet(s)

We have a friendly indoor / outdoor cat that is very low maintenance - just needs food, water, and love. We can likely find another home for our kitty in the neighborhood, but would find it easiest for her to be taken care of by our guests

I may need help with mail and deliveries

We will be receiving mail which will simply need to be collected and left in the house

I may need help with plants or garden

Some fruit trees will need some semi-periodic watering in the dry season - once a month. The rest of the garden is yours to explore and plant as you see fit!
