My view and my private yard and am surrounded by trees. My house is rather eclectic in it's style. Nothing really matches. Cable TV in bedroom (basic cable unless otherwise requested); wi-fi. Very comfortable queen-size bed
Guests have access to outside decks, kitchen, living room and dining room.
Interaction with Guests
I suppose that's up to the guest. I am open to conversation but I would respect their privacy.
There are 60 plus acres of forest (UCSF property) of wooded trails directly above my house that is open to pet walking, foot traffic, and mountain biking. I live on a cul-de-sac and parking is no problem.
From the SFO, take Bart to Glen Park Station and then catch the Muni Bus (#36 Terrasita) to Warren and Devonshire. Walk a short distance up Devonshire (one block), turn left onto Oak Park, 3rd house down.

Respect that we have a drought year and don't let the water run unnecessarily. No smoking in house. I don't sleep with the heat on, but if you need to I could supply a floor heater.
Bonnie went out of her way to make my stay most comfortable. The room and bath was just as described, and I so appreciated the quiet evenings. The area at the base of the hill was full of interesting restaurants, bars and coffee houses...,the only difficulty was deciding which to enjoy. I was very appreciative of Bonnie's kindness and thoughtfulness.
Bonnie is a great host who made us feel right at home. Her place is beautiful with a gorgeous view! (Bath)room was well furnished, clean and it has a very comfy bed. The dogs are cute as two buttons, too bad we couldn't take them with us. All-in-all a very pleasant stay, would definitely recommend!
We had a great stay at Bonnies home. Great host, kind, helpfull. Wonderfull view from her living room over the Twin Peaks and the bay. The two dogs very cute. We can highly recommend Bonnies home. All the best for you Bonnie and your two guys.
Bonnie's house is a wonderful place to stay. We loved her warm hospitality so much. The room was really nice and clean, with own bathroom and shower. Bonnie's house is in a very good neighborhood. You don't have to worry about a parking lot. There is plenty of space in front of the house. We met a new friend! Thank you Bonnie! Highly recommended! Tanja & Gert
The location is great and the view is amazing. The bed is soft and comfortable, even if it is a little high for me
This is a wonderful place to stay at a great price for San Fran!Bonnie was a wonderful hostess and has a beautiful space with a fantastic view. She and her dogs were warm and welcoming from the moment we arrived and Bonnie had great suggestions for places to check out around town. It was a joy to chat with her before and after our days adventures but I wish we could have spent more than just a few minutes each day talking with her. The bedroom and private bathroom were comfortable and inviting and we felt like we were staying with family.
About the Host, Bonnie
I began hosting with Airbnb in March 2013. It's been interesting and mostly enjoyable meeting so many different people from different countries. I love that most people that come to San Francisco are surprised at how friendly people are here and how willing they are to help. I went to New Zealand a few years ago and was surprised to find that people were more reserved and a bit more guarded, less open. So I am learning things from people that I did not put together until I hosted. It's fun to hear other people's perceptions of Americans and see their opinions change a little.
I have two border collies - one 14 and one 7. They are very friendly and love people but after their initial greet are very calm. San Francisco is very dog friendly and we walk a lot (off leash). I have 60 + acres of woods behind my house used for hiking and mountain biking, which is quiet and we love walking up there. It is property owned by UCSF and open to the public.
I love animals of all kinds, but would especially love to add a couple of chickens to cluck around outside. But I would have to first figure out how to protect them from nocturnal predators. Typically you don't see them, but we have coyotes, skunks, and raccoons. My dogs know they are there more than me.
Personally, I guess I am a work in progress, still trying to figure out where I would love to live if I were to move...maybe where I could garden more and have more animals. Some place relaxing, preferably with a creek running through...but at the same time a place that is multi-cultural. I am easy going and relaxed and don't stress too much over little things. Sometimes people that feel entitled drive me a little nuts. But I'm trying to learn to ignore them.
I don't really have many hobbies anymore. I'm kind of a work in progress, realizing there is so much out there to do and learn. Hosting has made me want to see more and do more. I traveled a lot when I was younger and am content to just think maybe doing a bit more of it soon. When people stay here from other countries I like to find out more about their culture and where they are situated geographically. I am learning from all of this and it's been mostly good.
