A LITTLE HISTORY
On Mt. Davidson, one of the famous 7 HILLS of San Francisco, lies this area named MONTEREY HEIGHTS. It is located, one block above St. Francis Wood, very close to the infamous WEST PORTAL. "West Portal" is derived from it being the 'west' 'port' 'hole' of San Francisco, therefore VIEWS of western SF all the way to the Pacific Ocean.
This home was the first house built in this area .

fyi---When packing to come to San Francisco, it is always good to remember MARK TWAIN'S QUOTE, " The coldest Winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco". Native San Franciscan's recommend three to four layers of clothing city.
I will invite you here, show you the house and amenities and then discuss access.

Dee was so accommodating and lovely. Her hospitality started long before I arrived in that she suggested a route I take from LA to SF that saved me a half hour of driving! When I got to the house she gave me a tour of the large living space which included a large bedroom, bunkbed room, bathroom and even a speakeasy bar. The bar isn't stocked but it has a really cool backstory. The room was cold the first night but the next night Dee gave me a heater and turned up the heat downstairs. She was so accessible. Would love to stay at her home again.
Dee ist eine perfekte Gastgeberin, offen, hilfsbereit und immer für ein Gespräch zu haben. Sie gibt gerne Tips und macht Vorschläge was man in San Francisco alles machen kann. Das Zimmer war genau so wie abgebildet, geräumig und hell mit direktem Blick auf den Pazifik. Alles war sauber und perfekt in Ordnung. Dee sorgte sich auch immer darum, dass alles nötige da war alles bestens funktionierte.
Dees House is in a great neighbourhood of San Francisco. It was very easy and fast (30 minutes) to access downtown San Francisco. Dee was a great host, everything was clean and friendly and welcoming. The room I rented was wonderful, very large with a great view, basically a home within the house.
I can only recommend Dee and her hospitality very warmly.
it was a great time spending with Dee in her lovely house. the house is pretty with a nice view over west SF. It's pretty convenient to get into street car or BART to downtown SF. If you take a cab, the fee is around 35. Dee is a extremely friendly and sweet lady with the cutest dog Sammy! She is responsive, responsible and humorous. Would love to stay over again later!
This our second time staying at Dee's home. She is very welcoming and pleasant. Also, she is an interesting person which is an added bonus. Her home is in a lovely, established neigborhood.
Dee is a thoughtful hostess - she gave plenty of useful information about the house and San Francisco. Sammy (her dog) is sweet and quiet. The room and private bathroom are neat and quiet. Fabulous view - same as that show in the picture. Plenty of street parking.
Dee is a wonderful host. Really friendly and thoughtful. Her house is beautiful and quite vintage also. We really had a great time. I would love to come back to her house again!
