It is a nice room in a 2-story family home right next to a great city neighborhood, with easy access to public transportation.

The Space

We are a family of four with a nice home in the charming residential San Francisco neighborhood known as West Portal. We are right around the corner from a great urban-village set of shops, restaurants, a movie theatre, and a subway station with easy downtown access.

Guests will stay in comfortable room with a queen-sized bed, a small garden view and no street noise. The bed accommodates two adults, but additional children are also welcome to stay in the room if they don't mind a blow-up air mattress. Guests have their own bathroom and full access to our kitchen. Our family sleeps on a different floor of the house, but the living room, kitchen and dining room – on the same floor as the guest room – are shared space.

Street parking is almost always easy to find, though Monday-Friday from 9:00am-5:00pm there is a 2 hour time limit to street parking.

Guest Access

Kitchen, living room, backyard.

Interaction with Guests

We are generally pretty busy with our jobs and children, but we are a friendly family and happy to be available for any questions about travel or anything else.

The Neighborhood

It is great little urban neighborhood with a movie theatre, restaurants and shops, and right near the subway station.

Getting around

A subway station that goes right downtown (and to the airport) is a 2 minute walk from a house.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I was pleased with the room we stay at Josh's house. The room is spacious and clean. I didn't have chance to meet the host but he had prepared for my visit quite well. Thanks to Josh and his family. The bath room is clean and has towels and soap. The location of this house is only about two blocks away from Metro station. So it is very convenient to go any where in SF. I would recommend this place for visitors of SF who wants to enjoy nice sleep in a quiet residential area.

  • We had a wonderful stay in this lovely room with private bathroom. The hosts were very friendly and cared that we had a great stay. We would love to stay here again! Love the West Portal neighborhood too!

  • My parents stayed at Josh's house (I live close by but didn't have enough room for them in my studio) and he was very welcoming to us when we first arrived. My parents always had great things to say about their room. It felt very private and they slept soundly on the comfortable bed, which is very rare for them. The neighborhood is fantastic! The house is very close to all sorts of restaurants, bars, and boutiques (Goodwill Boutique is my favorite). Thanks again for letting my parents stay with you for Father's Day weekend!

  • We had a great time at Josh's place. It is really a perfect starting point to visit the city, because the subway station is just a short walk away and we never waited longer than 5 minutes for the next train. The rental room is exactly as shown in the pictures and we felt very much at home there. It was also great to be able to use our own bathroom right next to the rental room. Josh provided us with plenty of information about the neighborhood (with restaurants, coffee shops and a movie theater) and was very quick and friendly in his communication. We would definitely like to stay there again and we strongly recommend this place for everyone who wants to enjoy their vacation in San Francisco.

  • We had a great four day stay with Josh and Mary Ann. They were very nice and their home is lovely. It was very clean, convenient, and in a cute and quiet neighborhood. We didn't spend a lot of time at the house because we were so busy with so many things to do in SF. However, their place was in an excellent location, being real close to the subway. There are also several restaurants and stores just one block over. It was great having a real home to come home to each night. They were real interested in making sure that we had everything we needed, but also very respectful of our privacy. I would highly recommend their place to anyone.

  • Josh and his family are very nice, friendly and so helpfully. We felt like home. We recommend this location to 100%. The neighborhood is very safe and nice. You are in 15 minutes in the inner city with the subway (station West Portal). Friendly greetings to Josh and his family.

  • I stayed with Josh and his family for 4 days, and it was a lovely experience which I highly recommend.

    Location: The house is located in west portal, a quiet and safe area, which is a short muni ride from the center. The muni station is only 2-3 minutes away, with many nice options for lunch or coffee on the way. very convenient if you are traveling by public transportation.

    Room: The room is spacious and clean, with a huge and very comfy bed. The bathroom is nice and clean, but keep in mind it is not en suite, so you have to exit into the hall/dining area to get to it. However, most of the time you have complete privacy, especially during weekdays.

    Hosts: Josh and his family were very kind and welcoming, and even left a coffee mug for me every morning! They were also happy to give advice on places to go and things to see, and most importantly had respect for my privacy.

    Overall, it's a great accommodation option if you're coming to SF by yourself. Easy to get around and a reasonable price for this (expensive) city. Would definitely stay there again.

  • Josh's place was lovely! Not only it was very clean and cozy, but also elegant and beautiful. It is located on a very quiet street, and close to many fun shops and public transportation. Josh was very helpful with my late check-in through a detailed, instructive email, and prepared everything for my arrival. The bed, linens and other supplies are very good, setting a very high standard for travelers like us during a short stay. Overall, I strongly recommend this place!

  • Josh, his wife and family were lovely host! Really accommodating. The house and room were spacious and clean, with our own bathroom. Josh was willing to give us directions and any helpful tips we needed while staying in San Francisco. The location was great! Really near to public transport and some lovely little resturants and shops. All together a fantastic stay! Thanks so much!

  • Josh and his wife are a lovely couple who were courteous, helpful and friendly. They have a beautiful home in a very nice, safe neighbourhood with shops, cafes, beauty salons, bars, a lovely bookshop and restaurants. It took me about 11 minutes to get from West Portal to Powell and Market (downtown) by Muni train! It was also very relaxing and pleasant to stay away from the madness of downtown San Francisco which can be a bit overbearing at times. I strongly recommend (email hidden) if you don't mind staying away from the tourist traps and Union Square.
