I am from Thailand and my husband grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area. I am a professional Thai cook and if you would like a private dinner sometime, I would be happy to provide a unique and original meal. We have a 22 month boy and no pets.
This house is located in one of the most attractive, safe, and fun neighborhoods in the East Bay. Virtually everything you would like to do (jogging, shopping, banking, hanging out) is within a short walk.
My husband grew up in Oakland, is a Cal graduate, and is familiar with the area and the state. He is a great resource in planning your excursions. The back patio is a wonderful place to hangout and have a BBQ.
