Interaction with Guests
Our family is happy to give recommendations to all our guests! When we're not busy we're very happy to hang out with you and show you around the city.
Personally, I enjoy the area for its sunny weather (the fog is often prevented by the hilly areas in between). To attest to the warmer weather you will find figs, plums, lemons and tomatoes growing in our back & front yards. If you know San Francisco you know about our many micro climates, if you do not yet know about it, you will learn quickly (we will teach you).
We are located conveniently near Bernal Heights where you can find many quaint restaurants/ cafes, book store, library, pet store, ice cream shops, as well as Good Life Grocery market. Our family favorite is the nearby ALEMANY FARMER'S MARKET the oldest farmers market in California. It is in driving, walking or biking distance.
Public transportation is within a block radius; the 23, 24, and 44 (Muni) run from early in the morning to 12/1:00 AM. Muni trains (KT) station is 13 minutes walking distance.
Other Things to Note
My mom just discovered this easy and beautiful bike ride to downtown, Mission Bay, or other places in the city. She loves it and enjoys every part of the ride. It takes her 30 minutes from our house to Embarcadero @ Market.
If you have a car, the location is ideal. Within minutes, you will be on Highway 101 or 280 north or south. It takes 20 minutes by car to get downtown, and 20 minutes to the beach at Fort Funston.
The newly developing third street area is 10 minutes walking distance It is changing it's face by the minute and you will find the little known secrets of San Francisco. Truely worth discovering.
There is all day free street parking available in our neighborhood. Rare in San Francisco.
We do have two dogs that live in the house so our guests MUST be dog lover(s)! Because we do already have two dogs living in the house, we do not allow our guests with pets, just keeps things less complicated!
please don't smoke.
please clean up after yourself, especially in shared areas.
please don't use illegal drugs in the house.
please don't invite visitors (strangers) into the house unless given permission.
please be courteous and kind to us (and the dog).
