Nearby attractions are the Golden Gate Park, the Golden Gate Bridge, the San Francisco Zoo and the beautiful Pacific Ocean. These are all accessible by bus within a two block walking distance. We are also close to a shopping center with a variety of department stores and large supermarkets. San Francisco State College and UCSF are also within a 7 minute drive and accessible by bus. We have an olympic swimming pool within a 5 minute walk and we are close to Lake Merced/Harding Park Golf Course. There is also a great YMCA within a a 5 minute drive.
Wonderful restaurants are all over San Francisco but a few gems are close by.
Our place is special because it is private, close to amenities and in a great neighborhood that is extremely safe. There are no stairs as this is a first floor suite and there are handicapped grab bars in the w.c. and shower area.

Interaction with Guests
I meet and greet. If they want information, they are welcome to send me an e-mail or even talk to me.
Other than that, they have their privacy.
West Portal is a great neighborhood.
There are lots of restaurants, nail salons, a movie theatre, banks and easy access to transit for dowtown.
From West Portal, it is easy access to downtown and Fisherman's Wharf and most of the tourist areas. From 19th Avenue (which is a 3 block walk) easy access to #28 bus which takes you to Golden Gate Park and the Golden Gate Bridge.
I expect my guests to respect my property.
I will not tolerate sneaking in extra guests without notification and payment.
Sheila was incredibly hospitable and welcoming. It was so lovely to stay in my old neighborhood. The peaceful quiet was exactly what I needed. The place has lots of space and character and is minutes away from West Portal where muni can take you pretty much anywhere in the city. I had a great experience and would definitely recommend!
I travelled to San Francisco for three days with my teenage daughter and teenage niece. These accommodations were perfect; clean, comfortable, safe.
Sheila was an awesome host. She was available when we arrived. She oriented us to the city and local community. Sheila also made us feel welcome to approach her if we had questions during our stay.
The neighborhood is an excellent jumping off place to the city. It is an easy walk to restaurants, shops, and transportation. (Indeed, my sixteen-year-old daughter reported after three days of blanketing the city that West Portal is her favorite part of SF!)
I absolutely would stay again.
I travel a lot between Seattle and San Francisco. West Portal is the perfect neighborhood for me when I am away from home and as always, Sheila is an amazing host. Thanks again!
This was our second time staying at Sheila s appartment. Sheila communicated well and the space was clean and had everything necessary for a pleasant stay. It is nicer than the pictures and extremely well located.
Shiela was great. It was our first time in San Fransisco, and she showed us where everything was, and how to get there on a map. The place was perfect too. Clean, spacious, and the location is great. Everything you could ask for!
As was all our previous visits with the Birminghams, this visit was a DELIGHT!! They are gracious and accommodating hosts WITHOUT being, at all, intrusive.
The suite is lovely and quiet and in a great neighborhood, a bit removed from the bustle of downtown SF, but PERFECT to get a bit away from the noise and congestion of more compact neighborhoods, to decompress during a trip to SF. It is SOOOOO nice and quiet to sleep at night and they provide all the conveniences of home away from home.
The gem in this property is the designated parking space, a MUST for overnight if you drive to the city.
A GREAT place for a couple or a small family. A 5+ stars in my book!!
Sheila made us feel very welcome. She had maps and offered advice on getting around the area whenever we asked.
The suite was just as pictured in the photos. The neighborhood was great. We could walk to the West Portal area, which has many many shops, restaurants and best of all a muni station.
I am retired from working for the City and County of San Francisco.
I have been hosting international students and love it. I have met people from all over the world and love hearing about their customs and sharing ours and also this wonderful city with all it's adventures.
I love traveling and have been to many continents. Asia will be in the near future.
I am taking classes at San Francisco State to keep my brain activated.
