There is a picnic corner where we set out a blanket when the weather permits. The labyrinth is designed for walking on -- either following the path or stepping on the border rows. The path is planted with chamomile, and the border is outlined with erodium.
There is a little play house which now functions as a garden shed. It offers several perches from which to enjoy your morning coffee.
Supervised children are welcome in my home. In my garden, there is nothing toxic as far as I know, but lots of rocks and snails that could go in a curious mouth. Note that the price is for two guests, and a third person (yes, I do consider children people!) requires pre-approval and an extra charge.
My home is organized so that my guests can be completely independent. I live upstairs. The laundry room is just outside the guest entrance. The kitchen, bedroom and bathroom are exclusively for my guest (I have only one listing). The entrance my guests use is separate from the main house, and the only people you will encounter in the garden would be me, or my friends, or the occasional raccoon.
Interaction with guests
Other than when I am out at an opera rehearsal, or playing concerts or recording sessions, I am available just upstairs if needed. My guest space is organized for an independent person or two, and I recognize that most people are here to rest. I've had many lively meals and conversations with various guests, and enjoy sharing my take on the world when it is convenient for my visitors.
Other things to note
Daly City is immediately south of San Francisco, and my corner of it is next to the Sunset District near Ocean Beach. The San Francisco Zoo is close, and the #18 MUNI can take you from the edge of Daly City all the way north through Golden Gate Park and the Presidio.
I am interested in sharing my home with people who will appreciate and respect my home and neighborhood. I'll try to be a good host, and you be a good guest!
Sorry, no smoking of any kind, especially in the garden, and no pets. I have severe allergies to animals, and it's not just a whim :-)
Use the parking space in front of my house if it's available, and don't infringe on anyone's driveway. For your own benefit, check out the posted street parking restrictions: the Daly City police are vigilant about curbed wheels (turn the wheels downhill into the curb when you park), and there is opposite side street cleaning Monday and Tuesday mornings.
Check with me first if you plan to do laundry. You're welcome to do a load, but we have to coordinate :-)
This is my home, and my guest suite is not convenient for gatherings. Do not invite guests to visit you.
It's funny to try to describe yourself! I live modestly in one of the most beautiful places on earth, play in the orchestra of one of the premier opera companies in the world, try to eat right and keep moving well, and tend to look on life's adventures with a smile in my heart.
