We live in a 2 bedroom flat. The flat is 100+ years old with character, has hardwood floors, 2 working fireplaces, central heat and a private laundry room with a high energy efficient washer and dryer. (Central heating is great in San Francisco, as many places do not have this and are cold, drafty and/or moldy due to the fog and proximity to the ocean.) We have a small kitchen and there is so much ridiculously great food in this town, we eat out often. Please let us know if you would like to cook and we will get you set up with space and supplies in the kitchen. Enjoy our beautiful backyard with organic garden.
The room is calm and quiet, with hardwood floors. There is a queen size futon with a new 3 inch thick memory foam pad on top - super comfortable.
High Speed WiFi is included. 1.5 blocks to Golden Gate Park and 2 miles to the Pacific Ocean. There is a great yoga studio one block from our house. Our street is quiet but there are many bus lines close by. If you drive, you can be on the Bay Bridge in 15 minutes, and on the Golden Gate Bridge in 10 minutes. 19th Ave is on a diagonal, and is only 3 blocks away from our house, for super easy access to 280. Parking is very easy here. There are many great restaurants within walking distance. Close to Golden Gate Park, where you can walk thru a magical redwood grove on your way to the rose garden or Stow Lake. 2 blocks from De Young Museum or Academy of Sciences. There is a very large and wonderful bookstore called Green Apple on Clement street near 6th avenue, open into the evening 7 nights a week.
Parking is free and easy.
Having lived in SF for many years, this is by far my favorite neighborhood to live in! We are self-employed, artistic, and practice yoga. You will have a great, relaxing, and fun time here with us in San Francisco.

This is my very favorite neighborhood in San Francisco. We're a block and a half to Golden Gate Park, right by the De Young Museum, Academy of Sciences, Rose Garden, Stow Lake, Japanese Tea Garden, and Redwood grove. Our neighborhood is non-touristy and the real deal. There are people who grew up in their houses and still live there today. We know our neighbors (and their pets:). It's so great to go enjoy all the city has to offer, then come home and relax in peace, sleep deeply, wake up and have breakfast on the back steps looking at the garden, then go out and have another fun day.
Not only is parking easy, there are also many bus lines very close by that will take you anywhere in San Francisco and beyond. Golden Gate transit, plus the bus lines: 1, 2, 5, and 38 are all very close.
Please take your shoes off inside the house. Please do not use chemicals, like perfume, cologne or aftershaves, as they cause me to get headaches. Thanks for understanding.
No smoking inside or within 100 feet of the house.
Feel free to use the kitchen between 9am and 9pm for your vegetarian pleasures.
Relax and make yourself at home!
Shayla is very very enthusiastic. She welcome us after a long flight journey even it was late in San Francisco. The bed is soft. We have a good stay there.
We had a fantastic time staying at Shayla's and Dave's place! We were staying there for nine days and it was great. Shayla and Dave are both such great hosts, very kind, welcoming and helpful. We had some great conversations and they gave us great tips for things to do, eat etc. in their neighborhood.
The apartment is clean, cozy and comfortable and the room is lovely! Located in a nice and safe area in the Inner Richmond, there's hardly any noise from the streets at night, but there is the golden gate park and restaurants etc. etc. just around the corner. The perfect spot if you prefer living in a quieter place when visiting SF. Though we were out pretty much all day, we always felt at home when we came back to the apartment in the evening.
To sum up, we were truly happy to have stayed here, since it was the perfect start for our stay here and we can only recommend this place to anyone planning to spend some days in the city.
I had family visiting San Francisco last minute and Shayla graciously welcomed them to her home. My family report that they couldn't have been happier with how warm, accommodating, and professional Shayla was. Two thumbs way up for Shayla.
Shayla and Dave were great! Very welcoming, and treated me to tea and snacks upon my arrival, along with some great conversation!
Room was very nice, clean, just as advertised. Neighborhood is good as well - park and transit adjacent.
I would definitely recommend staying here. Thanks again!
I absolutely loved staying with Shayla, Dave, and little El Toro. All were extremely accommodating and the bed is the most comfortable bed I've slept in- I almost slept through in an Earthquake on it!
Dave and Shayla were very helpful with helping me find local places to eat and see while I was visiting. I will definitely be back.
My husband and I were very pleased with the welcome we received from Dave and Shayla. We got in San Francisco late at night and Dave drove us to a restaurant to have dinner and later called us asking if we need a ride back home. That was very nice.
The area was very safe and we didn't have any problem walking every were we chose to.
Shayla and Dave were very friendly and helpful with any request we had.
On our last night Shayla left a very nice note for us and nice bag of very health snack that I loved.
The only down side for me was the kitchen that was crowded. Difficult to cook anything if I felt like doing it.
Overall we had a great time.
Hi Maria, thanks for letting us know what you liked and how we can be better hosts. In my world, we and most of our guests eat out most of the time. We knew you were in class all day and out to dinner, so it didn't occur to us that you would have liked more space in the kitchen, and I can understand not feeling comfortable to ask. We have updated our listing to invite our guests to tell us if they want more space in the kitchen and are happy to make that happen. We will ask our guests this in person as well. We enjoyed hosting you and your husband and hope to see you again. Thanks again Maria!
Shayla and Dave are awesome hosts!!! They gave my parents a lot of helps while they stayed there. Very considerable, helpful and friendly. My parents had great time staying in their house. I would definitely recommended their sweet house to my friends and family.

I love travel, critters, joy, fresh raw vegan food, chocolate, movies, great books, yoga, live music, laughter and hiking in nature. As a host, I am supportive, unobtrusive and flexible. One of my life mottos: Be part of the solution.
