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.

Everything was amazing.
Absolutely no regrets staying at this listing. Great location in a quiet neighborhood and very close to public transportation to get anywhere you want to go. Everything you need is here: great restaurants, coffee shops, and even a supermarket all within walking distance.
The apartment itself was immaculately clean, well organized, and even bigger than the pictures let on. I felt right at home the moment I stepped inside.
Off street parking turned out to be a tremendous bonus as parking in SF seems unpleasantly difficult and/or expensive.
Most importantly, Sheila was a perfect host. Very respectful of our privacy but also very fun to chat with. We came in fairly late our first night but Sheila was very flexible and even left us some food and drink in the fridge!
Overall, I had a great experience here and can't think of a single reason I wouldn't stay here again on my next visit.
It was lovely to stay at Sheila's place. She is very welcoming and the apartment was lovely and homely and big too with a nice outside space. We loved the free parking space as we hired a rental car as we were travelling with our 7 month old son.
The apartment is really close to the shops and restaurants and the BART station too.
We would definitely recommend this place and would stay here again.
Sheila was a wonderful host! She was right there to greet us when we arrived at her lovely San Francisco apartment. She had the fridge stocked with breakfast items (yogurt, fruit, o.j., etc.) and plenty of written material on how to use the transportation system and restaurant recommendations for the West Portal neighborhood. We'd love to stay there again when we're back in S.F.
Sheila was very welcoming and attentive - lovely host. The suite is very close to good transport links (muni) to all of San Francisco which allowed us to make the most of our 3 day stop over. The suite is very comfortable and homely which was perfect. I'd definitely recommend!
