We suggest the App called Around Me be downloaded onto your smartphone.

We also suggest the App called Moovit for bus schedules citywide!

Uber is another convenient App we recommend !

If you do have a car, here are a few other ideas : if you see a parking meter on Sunday you do not have to pay to park. Our parking is very easy!...we have no meters anywhere near our home!!!!

If you are driving over the Golden Gate Bridge, don't look for a person in the toll booth. The system has been automated!

During your stay

We are very happy to leave you alone and give you all the privacy you wish or need! On the other hand, we will very much enjoy having a conversation with you about why we adore San Francisco or what it was like when we lived on the Island of Crete, Greece, for 6 years! We are happy to tell you that we recommend taking a Ferry from the Ferry Building to at least see our San Francisco from the Bay. We also, upon request, will show you our awesome Art Studios and all the Works in Progress!
