Interaction with Guests
My interaction with guests depends upon the guest. I am available to answer questions about the San Francisco Bay Area and all it has to offer, but I provide guests with all the privacy they need.
West Portal Avenue is located two blocks from the apartment and there you will find an array of restaurants, coffee shops, small boutiques, a neighborhood bookstore, pharmacy, and the local movie theater. From there you can take public transportation to all areas of San Francisco within minutes. It is a very relaxed and safe neighborhood located at the southwest side of the city. The West Portal and Inner Parkside district provide a true experience of a neighborhood community in an urban city; small but abundant, West Portal is a great place to visit.
PLEASE NOTE: If you have a car you can park in the apartment driveway. (Free of charge 24 hours a day) When making your reservation please note that you will need a parking spot in the driveway.
REMEMBER: San Francisco has micro-climates and having a jacket or a sweater at all times is a great idea. San Franciscans dress in layers, because the temperature varies in different parts of the city and you may need to take it off or put it back on at a moments notice. On average, the temperature in San Francisco is between 40 to 75 degrees throughout the year depending on the season, time of day and the neighborhood you are in.
Other Things to Note

No smoking, loud noise, or pets any time of day or night. This is a peaceful and quiet home. Thank you for your respect and consideration.
Adriana was the perfect host. I would highly recommend staying there, so much attention to detail. All questions answered promptly, being part of the local neighbourhood was fantastic, easily accessible by foot or muni. We really enjoyed our day out together, thanks again.
Adriana was a fabulous and very kind host : warm welcome, explications and advices, and the goodbye with a surprise : 2 roses for us!
Great place close to the Muni station (West Portal), 15 minutes far away from Market street or Embarcadero, and in West Portal Avenue there is a lot of restaurants, bars and shops.
Thank you do much Adriana, we have spent a lovely time in SFO !
Adriana is a great host. She did everything she could to feel as comfortable while our stay and gave us plenty of information. The area is great, everything is good to reach, parking was no problem. The apartment is as described, there is everything you would need for a city trip to San Francisco.
We own a business and work 6 days a week. Time off is rare, so when we were able to arrange for 3 days off to attend a professional golf tournament in the city, we wanted to make sure everything was perfectly arranged to maximize our enjoyment. Friends had been encouraging us to use Airbnb, so we decided why not? We thought it best to try and find something close to the golf course and hoping, at the same time, we would be able to find a cute apartment close to shops and restaurants. Then we found Adriana and her wonderful apartment. Adriana made contact with us almost immediately after the reservation was made and accepted. She continued to stay in touch right up to the day before we arrived. Adriana impressed us even before meeting her. She was very helpful with giving us an overview of the neighborhood and made suggestions about public transportation to and from the golf course, as parking was very limited. Adriana was also very flexible with our check in time. As we were driving into the neighborhood where her apartment is located, we were very impressed with how nice the area is. It's exactly as stated. We live in San Jose and go up to the city on a regular basis, but weren't familiar with the West Portal neighborhood. The homes are very nice, the neighborhood is quaint and very very close (3 short blocks) to nice restaurants, shop, even an art film theater. The apartment is exactly as pictured on line. Nicely decorated and very clean. Adriana left a gift basket with goodies on the coffee table and a care thanking us for choosing her apartment. Adriana wasn't there when we arrived our first day but had provided very detailed instructions on how to enter the apartment. We had no problems at all. She came down to meet us and visit briefly in the evening. Adriana is very nice and energetic, thoughtful, warm, generous and caring. The perfect hostess! I'm afraid to say too much about how great our experience was because then the apartment will be booked all the time and we'll have a hard time getting in. Haha! Kidding aside, for our first Airbnb experience, it exceeded expectations. Adriana and her apartment are a bright gem in a jeweled city!
Adriana was the perfect host. We were greeted on arrival to the apartment and everything was explained very well. Adriana is very knowledgable on the local area and gave us advice and tips that helped us greatly during or stay. The welcome basket was lovely and the bedroom was decorated with a 'congratulations' banner for our honeymoon. Such lovely touches that made our stay extra special. The apartment itself is very well equipped with everything you could need for your stay. The deck outside is also an added bonus for beautiful views across the city. It takes about 15 mins to get into the city using the train at the end of the road. West portal also has many great eateries and we loved the area. We will definitely be back!
Adriana was very warm and welcoming when I arrived and gave me a complete and informative tour to her clean, comfortable and adequate lower level one bedroom space in her neat home.
While it did get chilly some mornings with no central heating, the nice area heaters Adriana provided did warm the place up nicely.
I loved the location of the apartment in a beautifully historic residential area of San Francisco that is ideally located by a very efficient public transportation system (MUNI) that whisks you into the heart of downtown within minutes.
We met Adriana the day of our departure, but that was more of because of our "strange" timing. She is a very nice person making all the possible to make you feel well. She prepard some snacks and beverages upon our arrival. Thank you Adriana.
The location is in a calm area, close to West Portal metro/tram station bringing you to any place in the town.
The appartment is OK for 2 persons, maybe a little bit small for 4 persons.
