(This area lies directly south of San Francisco) Bedroom is fully furnished, with lots of drawers and closet space, queen size bed, linens and towels provided, small refrigerator, cable/dvd and wifi. Bathroom with tub and shower and separate toilet. (Bathroom is private, unless a family guest is in 2nd bedroom upstairs.) Ceiling fan, wooden shutters and louvered door keeps this south-facing bedroom warm and dry in summer fog. Housekeeping twice a week. Lite breakfast, coffee, tea and usually bagels, included. Private patio and garden, smoking OK. Easy street parking. Walking distance to Daly City BART station. Laundry mats 1 block away. Driving we are 5 minutes to Pacific coast trails and hand glider area, 10 minutes to S.F. State University and about 10-15 minutes from S.F. Airport. Transportation to and from airport easily arranged. Korean and Mexican grocery stores, Chinese, Thai and Japanese restaurants as well as fast-food vendors within an easy walking radius. Our household consists of 2 adults, 1 Australian cattle dogs but sometimes a visiting grandpuppy, a rescued 9 lb. wire-haired terrier, 2 garage cats and 7 hens who live happily in a backyard chicken coop. We like to cook, backpack, travel abroad and garden. Our home is full of books, Asian antiques, instruments, homemade limoncello and spices.

Guest access

Our guests usually occupy the upstairs of the house which includes sitting areas in either of the bedrooms. Breakfast is offered in the living room from 7- 9am and guests often hang out in our kitchen with take out food that they have purchased from neighborhood restaurants. Smoking is fine in the patio adjacent to the kitchen or on the front veranda. Laundry facilities are not accessible to guests. House is equipped with smoke alarms, carbon monoxide alarms and first aid kits. Pick up at Daly City BART station is often arranged free of charge.

Interaction with guests

Interaction is generally when I serve breakfast to my guests. That is when questions about tourist attractions in San Francisco and car travel in California usually are addressed. The privacy of our guests is very respected. The security of our home is also respected.....our dogs bark....they don't bite. If you are our guests, they understand completely. They will greet you, sniff you and then let us know each time you come in the front door or come down the stairs. Our reviews from international guests speak for themselves and we are happy to host returning guests on a regular basis.

Other things to note

We have been hosting for AirBnB for about 3 years. We are a retired couple with extended family in the neighborhood. We genuinely enjoy our guests and take pleasure in making their stay in the San Francisco Bay Area enjoyable and safe.

My sister and I met in the Bay Area for Mother's Day Weekend. We were needing a place that was close to San Francisco but on the outskirts with plenty of parking. We found the right place at Syd's. We were welcomed like we were part of the family and felt very much at home. It was great to be in a residential area where the neighbors are friendly and looking out for each other and where there is sufficient parking (except on certain Monday mornings when the street cleaners decide to show up). The lovely mixture of the decor really resonated with various facets of my journeys and travels over the years - even down to the chickens in the backyard and the lavender in the front. From the pictures on the wall to the shell collection in the bathroom, we felt right at home as it reminded us of our mother and grandmothers. We needed a home away from home close to the airport and not far from the hustle and expensive bustle of San Francisco. If you are in need of a restful, clean place with hosts that will go the extra mile to make sure you are taken care of (and you won't get ticketed on street cleaning Mondays), then this is it!

Syd's place is the best. Very clean and comfortable, feel like home. My friend and I had the entire second floor! Syd and her husband are very nice and her dogs and parrots are so cute. She prepared delicious breakfast for my friend and me every morning. Her house located in a quiet and safe neighborhood. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely go back if we travel to San Fracissco again,

The house overall is just beautiful, stylish and spacious. Syd makes it even better with her great sense of hospitality so the atmosphere is great! The room, bathroom are spotless and organized really well so you feel very comfortable and cozy. The bed is perfect for a good rest. The house is situated in a safe and peaceful neighborhood, so you can easily park your car and don't be worried about it. Although it is not the center of the city it makes it even better and you can easily travel to the center in 10-15 min on a car. Super nice place in an awesome city! Syd, you are the best!!

My partner and I stayed at Syd's place for a weekend and I must say that her hospitality was awesome. From the airport Syd mention to us that we can take the Bart to the Daly station and that she would pick us up from there since we decided not to rent a car for our trip. To get to SF we would have to walk about 15 mins to Bart & bus stations. Which we thought was a good walk. She has stacks of brochures that had all of the tourist attractions of SF that which made it easy for us to plan out our day. Syd is an animal lover she has 2 house dogs, birds and a garage cat. Her dogs are her security alarm so be aware that you will hear them bark when you enter the house. Overall for this to be our first time staying at an Airbnb our stay at Syd home was so comfortable that I don't think we were even ready to return to our own lol. Thank you again for everything Syd. FYI we are so sorry that we didn't get a chance to say goodbye to u. Due to us catching our early morning flight. We would definitely return back if you will have us again. Till we meet again, god bless you!

We had such a great time staying here. It was a peaceful break from downtown San Francisco, the breakfast was delicious, and the dogs were so friendly. We wish we could have stayed longer to explore more of the city and get to know Syd and Barry better. The walk to the BART stop was 15-20 minutes which was really convenient. We would love to visit again.

My husband and I very much enjoyed our stay with Syd and Barrie in their beautiful home in Daly City: the lovely breakfasts, our many conversations, the ease of parking near the front door, the beauty of the home environment--both indoors and outdoor! This is a fantastic place to stay!

Syd User ProfileSyd is a superhost.

I am a retired first grade teacher that now works/volunteers with the Wilderness School in Daly City, an intervention program for at-risk teenagers. I am originally from San Francisco but have travelled extensively and lived overseas. My home is shared with my Australian husband, Barry, a retired auto mechanic, 2 cattle dogs, a rescued wire-haired terrier, new tortoise shell kitten and a garage cat. We spend a lot of time outdoors hiking with our dogs on the bluffs or beach near our house or working in our garden. I like to cook, back-pack, play the accordion, swim daily, practice my spanish, knit and read. Our former long-time boarders include a Parisian chef, a Syrian Kurd seaman, a Korean yuppie and our Japanese-American gay god-daughter. I consider my home to be warm, friendly and tolerant. Our house is located on a corner, so there is plenty of parking. The neighborhood is safe, multi-national and friendly. It is an easy 10 minute walk to the Daly City BART station or Westlake shopping area. Lite breakfast is provided every morning. Our dogs,
Joy, Ernie and Mariah (Our son's dog who visits frequently) are friendly and will noisily greet you each time you come in the door or come downstairs.
