The Space

Built in 1911, our large, comfortable and beautiful home and garden is located in a safe residential neighborhood. We are 2 blocks from Golden Gate Park (the home of the new De Young Art Museum and the new Academy of Sciences Museum, as well as containing tennis courts, miles of walking trails, and the Conservatory of Flowers), and are 8 minutes from the beach. Downtown, Fisherman's Wharf and the Golden Gate Bridge are close by. In addition, there's a wonderful farmer's market that's held each Sunday, close to our home. We are also walking distance from many excellent restaurants, and are a short walk from several different bus lines, making it simple to get around without a car.
The room is newly re-decorated, and has a queen size bed, dresser and desk top, and looks out on flowers and trees. It is wired for Wi-Fi, and has a private bathroom. We have another bedroom available for overflow, if you need it for an extra guest.
Our daughter Sara began our Airbnb experience a few summers ago, wanting to earn money for her college expenses. We all enjoyed having Airbnb guests, so we decided to continue with this when she returned to college. We are very accustomed to hosting people, having many friends who over the years have visited and stayed with us. Given that we have lived in San Francisco for decades, we can advise you on things to do, great spots to see, and wonderful restaurants.
We offer a continental breakfast, which includes
seasonal organic fruits, as well as english muffins, cereal, bagels, or scones, and of course coffee or tea.

Guest Access

Aside from their bedroom and bath on the second floor, guests are welcome to spend time in our garden, and have access to the first floor of our home, which includes the living room and dining area. They may use the refrigerator to store small amounts of food, but our kitchen is not available for cooking (although you are always welcome to make yourself a cup of tea!).

Interaction with Guests

We enjoy meeting our guests, and are happy to converse with them. We make ourselves available to answer their questions, and provide suggestions to make their stay as enjoyable as possible.

The Neighborhood

We love our neighborhood, because so many resources are close to home. We can do just about everything on foot: food shopping, museums, restaurants, walks in the woods, the beach, etc.

Getting around

We are within five minutes (walking) of three different bus lines, allowing our guests to go just about anywhere in San Francisco without having to get in a car.

Other Things to Note

Most people who have cars choose to leave them parked in our neighborhood. They prefer to use public transportation, given that buses are very close and easy to use, and there's a lot to do within walking distance.
In addition, you probably noticed a fluffy little white dog in one of the pictures. He is friendly, sweet, and doesn't cause problems for people with dog allergies. That said, he can do some barking in the mornings, particularly after we leave for work (usually around 9). Given this, if you tend to sleep late, ours might not be the place for you. No one has ever had a problem with this, but I do like to warn people.

    Toni and her husband are very friendly and welcoming and good organized.
    We enjoyed our stay there very much. Highly recommended

  • This experience exceeded our expectations! Toni & Phillip were great hosts and the room was very quiet, clean and comfortable. The location is great - a very safe neighborhood within walking distance of golden gate park and many restaurants and coffee shops, and very close to public transportation. Toni kindly provided wonderful coffee and breakfast each morning and was very sweet and welcoming each time we crossed paths. We had a wonderful experience and highly recommend staying here.

  • We had a wonderful 3 night stay at Toni's. The location was perfect with very easy bus access to downtown and within walking distance to the golden gate park. The neighborhood was safe. The room was comfortable and clean. Toni was very helpful in helping us figure out our way around and gave us many helpful suggestions for planning our trip. We also enjoyed meeting her family. We would definitely stay here if we visited SF again.

  • Loved loved loved staying here! Toni's home was beautiful and in a lovely area! My friend and I couldn't stop talking about how comfortable the bed was and how wonderful the room and bathroom were. Toni was warm, welcoming, and very helpful when figuring out how to get to places around town. She was also very accommodating to our schedule. I would definitely stay here again next time I visit San Francisco!

  • Wonderful stay with Toni and Philip - lovely home and gardens, warm hosts, interesting chats over breakfast and between our comings and goings, great tips on some local spots. Hope to do it again sometime.

  • Excellent location to stay if visiting family in the neighborhood and enjoying Golden Gate Park with all that it offers. Quiet, very fresh, clean and host very accommodating! A gem of a spot to put your head down after a wonderful day in SF!

  • My husband and I (age 45) have traveled all over the world and experienced "hospitality" in many forms. Our 4 night stay at Toni & Philip's home was perfect in every way! Their hospitality and accommodations were exemplary. Five Stars in every category. The photos and written narrative in their posting represent exactly 1) the conditions of their home and neighborhood (clean, beautiful, and safe), 2) how they treat their guests (respectful of your time and privacy, concern for your San Fran experience), 3) the PERFECT location to everything (you do not need a car - you can walk, bike, or catch a bus to everywhere you would want to go), 4) a lovely breakfast each morning (fresh fruits, breads, coffee and tea), and 5) the number of restaurants within walking distance. Another thing to note: the bed is ridiculously comfortable! It has a memory foam topper that is heavenly. The guest bedroom window looks out over their beautiful gardens - but the room also has blinds which can block out the sunlight so you can sleep in. (But don't sleep in too long - go out and experience SF!) Coordinating with Toni was a breeze - she is very responsive, and checking in and out was effortless. We highly recommend staying at Toni & Philip's home. You will not be disappointed in any way.

  • Toni and Phillip were great hosts. The bed was comfortable, the room quiet, and the house in a great location. I was busy and didn't get to talk with them much, but they are a delightful couple. I would stay here again if I have a chance.

    Response from Toni:

    Hi Drew,
    Thanks for taking the time to review your stay with us. I'm glad it worked out well for you to be here.
    Hope dental school finishes up well for you, and best to you in this new career.

  • Toni's house is a great place to stay if you're ever visiting SF - the bedroom you will be using as guest(s) is clean, quiet, and comfortable.

    Also, Toni's entire family is very welcoming (but not overbearing at all - they are very respectful of guests' privacy) - and have been very kind to us. They've reached out to us multiple times during our stay to check-in on how we liked everything and if there were anything they could help us with. They provided really good coffee & breakfast...even cut up fresh fruits for us every morning and on the day of our departure, Toni made us breakfast despite it being very early in the morning! It's as if you were visiting an old family friend in town.

    To future guests - this is a family home so as long as the respect (i.e don't make a mess, respect their privacy, don't do anything crazy that you wouldn't do at your own parents' house,etc) is mutual, you should expect a very comfortable stay where you will feel welcomed.

  • Toni & Philip's house is the best choice! You can call it home.
    The house is beautiful, perfectly located. We had the chance to walk everywhere or take public transportation.
    They recommended THE best retaurants to go in the neighborhood.
    They offer the perfect breakfast. The room is great with the most comfortable bed on earth, and the bathroom is absolutely clean and nice.
    Toni and Philip: Thanks for everything!!
