Adam's home was absolutely perfect... lovely, comfortable and easy! The bed was super comfy for the two of us. The location was in a quiet safe neighborhood that's a nice walk to West Portal. There were many restaurants there including Starbucks, Lemonade and also the train into the city every ten minutes or so. The mini kitchen set up was great for preparing light snacks. Joan and Adam had stocked it with coffee, bread, butter and wine which served to kick off our mornings and put a cap on the evening! The bonus for us was the gorgeous view of the ocean from the upper deck. We definitely want to come back!

Adam was an excellent host and very quick and responsive to any questions. The place was comfortable and there was an amazing view from our steps of the ocean. Sunsets were special as well, and the location was close by car to everything we wanted to visit in the area.

We stayed here for two nights and absolutely loved it. The space is roomy yet private and the beds in the rooms are super comfortable. The location is in a wonderful neighborhood and is right near a muni stop which is cheap public transport that will take you right downtown or near the wharf. Our first night there they brought us breakfast which we loved and was so thoughtful. If we are ever in the area again we will definitely look this place back up!

Was in town for orientation at SFSU. This home is in a great location and about a mile away from the school. It's also within walking distance to a lot of restaurants and a movie theater. The hosts were very accommodating and Joan even brought us cereal and milk so we wouldn't have to worry about breakfast on the day of orientation (orientation was pretty early). Would stay here again
