  • Everything worked out very well. The rooms are as described and the location near ocean beach is very nice and calm. Carol is a very good host and we can only join the other commentators in saying that the place is highly to recommend!

  • Carol was an amazing host! She has such a beautiful home, and it is the perfect location if you are looking to have the best San Francisco experience! Everything in the home was clean and I loved feeling comfortable to access the rest of the house ( kitchen, sitting area, deck, etc.) to sit and drink a cup of coffee for tea. Although, I did spend my mornings sitting at the table in my room looking at the ocean. I loved being able to see the oven from my bed as soon as I woke up. It is a very short walk away from the ocean where I was able to watch the sunset every night, and very close to Golden Gate Park for a relaxing afternoon or a museum day. There is always plenty of parking! I felt extremely safe my entire trip walking in the neighborhood by myself. Her neighborhood is quiet, but a short drive to neighborhoods with more of a nightlife scene.
    There are plenty of delicious restaurants near by that I enjoyed!
    Thank you for being such an amazing host Carol! I can't wait until I can come back and stay with you again!

  • Carol was a great host. Everything was just as described and she gave us lots of help and information to make our stay the best. The bed was comfy, the room was spacious, the bathroom private, the house was quiet, and we used her kitchen to make our breakfast, We were very pleased.

  • My really really long stay at Carol's was very pleasant. The house and the neighborhood are quite and clean, and it literally takes you only a right turn to the beach. For those who want to have a taste of SF without all the craziness in downtown, this is a perfect place.
    There is a Safeway right at the corner, plus quite a few bus lines that run through to the financial district.
    I had many fun talks with Carol, as well as with her dog Leo (who likes shrimps and yogurt if you'd like to butter him up).
    The master bedroom is on the top floor (3rd) with ample space and its own bathroom, which is great since I had to get up really early in the morning. I wish I could have had a little run by the beach everyday. But it was nice to know that it's right there. I'd definitely go back if I visit SF again and I highly recommend Carol's place.

  • I forgot to add, we needed a parking spot that was in front of Carol's home and she actually parked out front to save us a spot and gave it to us when we arrived. This was the extra mile that she went for us and it was really a big plus. It was important because my sister was leaving at 5am in the morning (for safety).

  • Staying at Carol´s house in Private Master Suite is an excellent choice. This was my first time in SF and I spent perfect 3 days at Carol´s home. The room is very clean and nicely furnished. I enjoyed having my own private bathroom. But I could also share Carol´s kitchen, which was really convenient, for making a cup of tea etc.. Also, the location is great; just next door to Ocean Beach, bus stop and supermarket.

  • Carol was a great hostess and Leo (the dog) was an absolute charmer. She has a lovely home and the private master suite was very comfortable and private for my fiancé and myself during our short stay visiting family and site seeing in and around SF.
    The location was perfect for us, as we had a car and there was parking right in front, and she is right next to the beach and golden gate park. In fact, Carol was so thoughtful so as to save a space for when we arrived.
    There's also plenty of public transportation nearby and some cute cafés about a 10-15 minute walk away.
    We would certainly recommend Carol and will consider her again for our next visit.

  • Loved staying at "Leo's at the Beach". Carol and Leo (the sweet Dalmatian) were terrific hosts. The house is on quiet street 2 blocks from Ocean beach and a very short walk to the Cliff House. The master bedroom/bath are on the 3rd floor-private and extremely comfortable, I honestly had the best sleep I've had in years!! I walked up to the VA on Clement every day for 4 days and found it a good location for that even though I'm not used to walking hills. If you want a peaceful, relaxing, and charming place to stay while in SF you can't beat Carol's. Highly recommended!!

  • Minha estadia com Carol foi excelente!
    A suíte em que fiquei é muito espaçosa e confortável, a casa toda é ótima e muito limpa.
    Carol é uma pessoa bem legal, de boa conversa.
    Ficar hospedado a duas quadras do mar e duas do parque Golden Gate é uma boa forma de iniciar e terminar o dia, e o fato de estar afastado do movimento do Centro e dos turistas ajuda a limpar a mente.
    Bem perto tem linhas de ônibus que te deixam no Centro em torno de 40 minutos. Outras linhas te levam a outras partes da cidade, mas de qualquer forma estamos falando de uma cidade pequena e de fácil locomoção.
    Pretendo voltar à mesma casa com minha família.

  • Carol was a perfect host, very helpful in giving suggestions about places to visit and restaurant to go. In addition, the room was very nice, comfortable and with a great view on the Golden Gate Park.
    Finally, the house is located in a nice neighborhood of San Francisco, not so far from the downtown and very safe.
    Very good!
