The village of Glen Park is a thriving neighborhood, with great neighborhood restaurants like NYTimes reviewed Gialina pizzeria, Manzoni (Italian), Le P'tit Laurent (French Bistro w/3 course neighborhood menu), La Corneta taqueria, Chenery Park fine dining, Higher Grounds creperie, and Tyger's neighborhood coffee shop. The Cheese Boutique, Destination Bakery, and Canyon Market have all your other food needs covered!

The room is available if you can book it through airbnb site. This is a family home, so there will be some noise. My husband works from home half the time. I work a late hour shift so I stayed up pretty late at night but We will keep the noise down if you sleep early. You might see my mom during the weekends.
Checking in late is not a problem for us at all. This is a no pet or smoking place. Smoking has to be taken outside of the house. Street parking is free but it could be difficult to find a parking spot after 6pm.
We have a German Shepherd Dog which is very friendly after being introduced. He is mostly outdoors or in the garage, though. We also have
a newborn baby in the house, only a few months old, so you may hear some crying sometimes. We have a German shepherd dog, who stays mostly the garage or outside. He barks once a while but mostly stay quiet.
Please keep the premise clean. no shoe policy: please leave street shoes at the foyer; i provide slippers. No pets. No smoking in the house.
My roommate and I stayed in Leslie and Gio's place for almost three months this summer. They are great hosts! The room is clean and cozy, neighborhood quiet and safe. The location is superb whether or not you have a car: 10 min walk to BART, 5 min drive to Safeway. I'd recommend it whether you are in SF for a short or long visit.
We Had a great Time in leslie's and Gio's home in san Francisco. Already during the booking process we Had a Kind conversation. The welcome was warm and friendly. The Room (with our own bathroom) was as comfortable and nice as shown on the pictures. We were invited to use the Kirchen, the livingroom, Sharing food ... . They gave us recommendations what to do in s.f., on farmers markets, Restaurants.
It was a Perfect Place to stay in san Francisco: 10 min. Walk to the BART-Station, several Bus connections around the corner and the Mission in walking distance.
Leslie and gio, thanks a lot for the great Time we Had during our stay with you and your Family!
My stay went exactly as expected. I had a fairly late check in due to a late flight and was still greeted warmly upon my arrival. The room was exactly as depicted. Very comfortable, clean, and the private bathroom was a huge plus. The location was perfect for my commute to downtown. I felt perfectly safe on my ten minute walk to the Bart station and only had a short ride (15 min) from there. Leslie and Gio were both very nice and personable. We had very different schedules but on the few interactions we had it was obvious that they were both genuinely good people.
Leslie and Gio have been very nice and helpful to get around the city. They even have cooked a nice meal for me!
The room was very clean and as advertise, and the private bathroom was definitely a plus.
Local bus stops are less than 2 minutes walk to get in you in the city in no time, that being said the room's window is behind the house and is very quiet thanks to their garden.
Great location to visit San Fran and the surroundings. Very close to the Glen Park BART (10 minutes to Embarcadero). Nice places to eat in the area as well. Also easy access from SFO (direct BART to Glen Park).
Direct buses to Alamo Square and so on.
Good room and en-suite. Did not see Leslie and Gio much during our 5 day stay but they are lovely and helpful people.
Leslie was very accomodating and welcoming upon our arrival at the house. The room was splendid with lots of space and fully stocked with small amenities that made it feel like home. Overall, we were out of the house most of the day and didn't interact with the family too much, but everyone I met was friendly and hospitable.
About the Host, Leslie & Gio
hi, we enjoy travailing and meeting new people. We both stay up pretty late at night; i work mostly in the evenings and my husband works from home during the day half the week. When we have the time, we like to go out and rediscover the exciting city life of San Francisco. We are very social and we do AirBnB also to meet people, make new friends, and if time allows, we are happy to show you around the City--or at least give you tips, advise, and answer any questions. My husband loves to host on Couch Surfing so he has a lot of experience hosting travelers, and showing them areas of the City where locals like to go.
