We love our home and it gives us great pleasure to have nice things for our airbnb guests to use. Please treat our home and it's contents with care and respect.
In the interest of their safety, it is very important that the cats don't go outside.
You are welcome to use the printer and paper to print out boarding passes or a couple maps. However we ask that you keep it to a minimum of 5 or so sheets.
If it looks like they need it, we would love it if you could water any indoor plants.
Out of respect for my next-door-neighbors, please be quiet between midnight and 6 am.
Smoking IS permitted in the central patio and of course outside.
We love kids, but unfortunately the house is not suitable or safe for children under 10.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. We look forward to helping make your visit to San Francisco an unforgettable experience.
Danielle is a very kind and gentle person.
The house is greate!
The house is quite well located, 15 min away from center by taxi.
She leaves us all istructions and also something to eat and drink.
The appartment was clean.
Unfortunately we didn't met her but she always write us to have our news.
Had a fantastic time at Danielle's beautiful house. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and it was a real pleasure to stay there. Close to all local amenities. Had 2 lovely runs in the nearby canyon. made great friends with the 2 cats. Hope to return sometime soon.
My experience at Danielle's house was absolutely fabulous! The place has everything to make your stay very comfortable as me and other 4 colleagues spent 5 gorgeous days enjoying the city and taking advantage of all the commodities the house comes with such: BBQ in the garden, walking distance from the closest BART station (Glen Park), great quality supermarkets and stores.
Danielle is an outstanding and detail oriented host as she welcomed us with a nice bottle of wine, fruits and dairy products. She has also provided us with plenty of local tips as per to enjoy the house and the city to the fullest. Moreover Danielle allowed us to leave our luggage at her place even though we had already checked-out in order for us to enjoy our last day in San Francisco without having to drag all our stuff around before going to the airport!
I highly recommend it to eveyone!
Danielle is a great host it was great to stay in such a characterful family house, every little detail was seen to with bathroom toiletries, fresh local fruit and basic provisions in the fridge. We did have a bit of a plumbing problem but Danilelle was straight on it and even baked a peach galette for the inconvenience (5 stars just for that!) With 5 of us the single bathroom required a bit of planning - had a fantastic time and we'll be back!
The house is huge and very beautiful, shops, grocery stores and transport choices at 5 minutes walking. I loved the garden. Danielle is a wonderful person, she left very detailed instruction to get anything we could need, even wine tasting recommendation which was very nice. She baked a delicious welcoming galette for us!! Unfortunately Internet did't work well for us but Danielle came out with several options to watch the world cup games. This is a smoke friendly place.
Our stay with Danielle was very nice! We loved her home, it was clean, comfortable, and had plenty of room for the 5 of us. Danielle was very quick at returning emails and texts, and was met us promptly when we picked up the key.
I would definitely recommend staying at her house. She had a long list of local attractions, great places to eat, and plenty of entertainment. She lives just a hop, skip and jump away from the heart of the city. My only regret is that our stay was too short!
Danielle's house is fabulous - extremely comfortable, bright and sunny.
Danielle is an excellent host - easy to reach. She kindly left my family some wine, bread and fruit - also a delicious home made dip - perfect since we arrived exhausted late at night. There was also coffee and tea available for the morning. Danielle's notes and recommendations were extremely helpful as well.
The beds and pillows are exceptionally comfortable and the garden is lovely - a perfect space to have morning coffee or just relax in the sun.
We had a car so access to many areas around the city was easy. The Neighborhood seemed very safe and pretty. There are parks and shops within walking distance - as well as public transportation (didn't use).
I highly recommend this property for a wonderful San Fran vacation!

I think one of the best ways to appreciate other cultures is through the local cuisine - squash blossom and huitlacoche quesadillas in San Jose Del Cabo, bacon-wrapped hot dogs in San Francisco's Mission, or jerk snapper on the beach in Ocho Rios. "Tell me what you eat and I will tell you who you are" by Brillat Savarin is one of my favorite quotes. I am a private chef and teach private cooking classes in San Francisco and the surrounding bay area. I'm 49 and have two beautiful kids: Scarlett (who now lives in New York) and my almost grown son, Emerson.
If you're reading this to learn what type of guest I would be, I can only tell you that I'm honest, mature, easy-going and respectful of people's property and I treat people as I would like to be treated.
My motto in life is: Yes!
