Interaction with Guests
We interact with our guests as much as they wish, completely respecting their privacy, and asking that they respect ours. We usually find that we have lots to share and learn from each other, and are delighted to share information about San Francisco's treasured sights, restaurants, markets, cafes, music venues, and the neighborhood.
Easy! We are located directly on bus lines and a 3 minute walk from a major train line. We know SF MUNI transit and encourage our guests to use it!
Welcome to our home. We're delighted to host you, answer your questions, make you feel comfortable, and fill you in on our favorite places to eat, shop, hike, and explore in San Francisco.
We are Saundra (mom) and Griffin (son, 17). You will be sharing our home with us, and we ask you to consider our need for privacy and family life. Though we do love to get to know our guests, so feel free to tell us more about yourselves and your travels while you're here. We ask you to keep drinking reasonable, refrain from smoking in the house and garden, and please, keep outside guests to pick-ups and drop-offs in the entry foyer.
You'll love lounging in your roomy bedroom suite overlooking the garden, as you eat your continental breakfast or enjoy afternoon tea or wine. Both bathrooms are available for your use - the upstairs bath, which is exclusively yours, has a tub, while the shower is in the downstairs bathroom.
Sorry, no kitchen or laundry privileges, however we can recommend the best markets and laundromats in the neighborhood.
While we have cats, they are strictly forbidden from the guest room out of concern for allergic guests. But watch out: they will sneak in and snuggle up if you let them!
Saundra was wonderful, accommodating, and patience. My flight from the East Coast was delayed by four hours. I arrived around 1 am. Saundra greeted me with a smile and was empathetic.
The room was great and Saundra made me feel right at home. She went out of her way to set up an ironing board and iron and they worked great. I travel frequently for work and getting an iron that works properly is rare.
I will definitely stay with her again when on business and will bring my wife should I spend a weekend in the city!
Very open and welcoming inspite of some building work ongoing in a bathroom the alternative tub was fantastic
Saundra's house was wonderful and the website didn't do it justice very large and comfortable room
Best B&B I gave stayed this winter ( and I have stayed at some great places )
Breakfast was very good too
My husband and I arrived to Saundra's home and were very pleased with the location, cleanliness and her obvious attention to detail. She greeted us warmly and showed us where everything was located, recommend wonderful neighborhood eateries and was available for any questions we might have had. We highly recommend this lovely home and would definitely return.
Saundra was an absolutely lovely host and person. She made us feel so welcome as soon as we arrived, and gave us a really good introduction to the city. Breakfast was delivered every morning and was always presented lovely and was delicious!! The room and bathroom was clean and so comfortable, the bed was amazing! Saundra really did care about our stay and wanted us to have the best experiences in San Francisco as we could. She guided us to the BEST local restaurants. We felt like it became a home after a few days, and loved having her friendly and cute cats around. We can't wait to go back to San Francisco to stay with Saundra and will definitely be recommending her to everyone!
A great spot to stay in San Francisco. Saundra was the perfect host, friendly, very quick to respond to requests, offered tons of great info and happily answered questions. Very comfortable bed and lovely breakfast delivered to room exactly at time requested. Only 4 subway stops from downtown. Couldn't have asked for more.
The host provided us with lots of helpful information. She let us check in early and made us feel very much at home.

I'm a working artist and mother in addition to hosting travelers. I love all of my jobs and engage in them with passion and dedication. I'm a born host, with an active social life, and welcome people into my home.
My AirBNB experience has been utterly amazing, with guests expressing their gratitude for the environment, warm family atmosphere, engagement and helpfulness, and attention to detail such as breakfast, personal attention, and little luxuries. I believe I gain as much from the experience of hosting as my guests do from staying with us.
Having traveled a fair amount, and stayed in pensiones and B&B's worldwide, I have a sense of what it's like to share someone's home. We are not a hotel, but a family home with lovely and comfortable accommodation and warm, engaged hosts. Welcome to our home.
