We had a great time at Louise and Jim's home. They are incredibly nice and overly accommodating. Thank you for a wonderful time.
A extended family from Beijing, China spent three days in Louis and Jim's house.
The location was perfect, especially with the roadside parking place. Very convenient!
Three bed rooms and individual bath rooms fit to my extended family very well.
My family enjoyed the lovely house. We like the design very much, and the beautiful poems on the wall.
Louise and Jim have a great/quaint place in the south part of San Francisco. Near shops and a BART station, it has a great location with easy access to the highway also. The off-street parking is a huge plus and the number of available bedrooms/bathrooms is great for groups. You are definitely staying IN their home and to see the amount of history and love of the family that lives here provides a good comfortable environment. I did not get to meet Louise and Jim personally but they were very easy to communicate with and the entire process was smooth/efficient. They even left us a bottle of wine and some snacks!
We enjoyed staying at Louise and Jim Nayer/Patten's home in San Francisco. Louise and I texted back and forth before our arrival to arrange meeting and getting the keys. Upon our arrival at their home, Louise showed us around their home. She was very kind to leave us a bottle of wine, some fresh fruit, coffee, and milk. My husband, my mother in law and myself stayed for four nights. The house was very comfortable. The home is in a nice, quiet neighborhood of San Francisco, Glen Park. We would recommend staying with Louise and Jim!
Our family had a wonderful time at this house. It managed to give 3 couples (and kids) our own spaces and bathrooms with room to spare. It felt very cozy - full of the hosts family photos, books, and memories. The TV's were modern with great cable service and the WiFi was great, too. The kitchen had every appliance you could think of. Louise was very gracious and sweet in our walk through and Jim (and Penny) seemed very nice, as well. Two parking spot was a great perk of this location. Downtown and the Airport are not very far and it was easy to navigate - so is a grocery store and coffee shop. We absolutely made ourselves comfortable and had a great time!
Three friends visiting San Francisco stayed at Jim and Louise's house. We each had a private bedroom and a bathroom to use. The Internet/WiFi worked well and the TVs are modern with a good selection of channels.
The hosts are easy to communicate with, the house is in great shape and clean. I'll definitely see if this location is available if I return to San Fran.
This house is incredible. The hosts are avid readers so there’s a lot of books everywhere. They are also very creative so you’ll find interesting things here and there. The place is actually bigger than we expected, 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, big living room, TV room and also TV in the master bedroom. There’s a nice backyard with lots of native plants and flowers. The kitchen had everything we needed to make our own meals. There’s even a piano. We wished we would have stayed here longer.
Louise and Jim are very organized and provide a lot of good information. Do not forget to read the guide book that they have for you in the kitchen. There’s information on metro station and fares, bus routes and fares, places to eat, hospitals, you name it They answered all our questions and were readily available to help with little things like recommending a nearby restaurant or calling a cab.
The neighborhood is very nice and it feels safe. We park our car outside and there wasn’t any issues with that. The metro is 5 blocks away so it’s perfect for those days when you don’t want to bother with parking. Around the metro station, there is a big supermarket with lots of healthy stuff.

Jim runs three times a week, works on his art, reads, does house projects and volunteer work. He loves watching sports. Louise teaches creative writing classes and writes books--and we both love reading, visiting museums, watching movies, seeing plays, visiting with family and friends and experiencing the great outdoors. We love meeting new people from all around the world.
We also still love to camp and Jim recently climbed to the top of Telescope Peak in Death Valley. Keeping active--mind, body and spirit--is important to us--as well as learning about life through all the new people we meet. We're also both independent people and understand and respect the need for privacy!
