Jennifer was an amazing host! She made me feel welcome from the time I arrived until the moment I left! Her home is beautiful and located in a great neighborhood. I would 100% return to Jennifer's home if I ever come back to San Francisco!
Very comfortable place in a great location. Jennifer and Peggy (the dog) were excellent hosts. Highly recommended.
Jennifer was great in welcoming my son Alex who is travelling alone in San Francisco and a bit lost at 18 years old (we live in the countryside in France so very different environment). Jennifers house is very beautiful and in a lovely part of San Francisco, Alex loved it. We will definately stay there next time I come over to visit SF.
This location is perfect if you have any business at the Palace of Fine Arts. Its a quiet and relaxing area of the city. Jennifer was warm and welcoming and went out of her way to ensure my stay was comfortable. I'll be back. Highly recommended.
Jennifer was wonderful to work with and very communicative. She's a genuinely nice person who opens the doors to her home for travelers. It was a great experience! I would definitely stay here again.
Jennifer's living space is a delight. It is cozy, nicely decorated, quiet and warm. The location is especially nice for visitors. It is one block to the Palace of Fine Arts, one block from the Marina, and has nearby coffee places. I like to walk in SF, for serious walkers there are mostly level walks that explore the northern part of the city. I also use Uber, which makes it feasible to home base at Jennifer's and inexpensively get to downtown, the various ethnic communities, and restaurants galore. Jennifer is knowledgeable and can help plan outings.
