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.

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.
