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.
We love our neighborhood, and take pride in sharing it. We're a residential area with dozens of restaurants, cafes, small independent stores scattered throughout. Our home is at the nexus of the NOPA, Castro, Buena Vista, Lower and Upper Haight, all lively neighborhoods with distinctive character. Lovely homes, street gardens/parklets, parks, playgrounds, and yes! great public transit that gets you anywhere in SF.
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, Griffin and Martin. 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.
If possible, please no arrivals after 10:30 pm. We need our beauty sleep.
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, which we all share.
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.
We loved our time in San Fran - and we loved our time staying with Saundra. Nothing was too much trouble, we were made to feel exceptionally welcome.
The room was delightful (as was the whole house) and it was exactly as advertised - or possibly even better than advertised. The location was perfect and was an easy base to navigate from.
We give it our highest recommendation.
Saundra was a wonderful and attentive host, who gladly shared her knowledge about her local neighborhood and San Francisco at large.
The location in Castro couldn't have been better. Close to some of San Francisco's fantastic restaurants and cafés.
Sunny Luxury Garden View has our warmest recommendations.
Our host made us feel most welcome. She was extremely helpful and pleasant. The description was completely accurate and just what we expected. As we explored the neighbourhood we found we liked it very much. It met our needs.
Saundra is like the world's best host ever! She is really friendly and warm. We wish we could have shared more time with her. The room is gorgeous, the location is fabulous and Saundra's hospitality is spot on. Everyday Saundra brought us breakfast, so nice! Saundra, hope to see you again if we come back again in San Francisco!
Saundra was a super host and made me feel welcome from the start, sharing ideas about where to go and what to do during the few days I had to spend in the city. The room is bright, spacious and very comfy and the breakfast was perfect: fresh fruit, yoghurt and tasty baked goods. The location is perfect for strolling around and experiencing the many faces of San Francisco; Haight Ashbury, Mission, Hayes and Castro, and it's very easy to hop on public transport to get downtown too. If I ever come back I would definitely try to stay with Saundra again!
Saundra made my girlfriend and I feel comfortable in every which way.
She was so open and warm and kind and generous. Made us feel at home immediately, and had great recommendations for all sorts of places to eat, drink and explore.

About the Host, Saundra
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 a very active 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.
