The Space

Modern bedroom with a brand new, supercomfortable queen sized bed is ideal for visitors eager to discover San Francisco or the business traveller. The room has a private entrance and has plenty of closet space. You have the exclusive use of a full bathroom, including hairdryer and towels, down the hall.

You are welcome to use the kitchen for any meals. Coffee, tea and fruits are available at any time. Alternatively, there is a Starbucks, Peets coffee, French Cafe or American breakfast restaurant a few blocks away (Laurel Village).

There are a number of excellent restaurants on neighboring Sacramento Street. The popular Fillmore street area is only 10 blocks away and offers many restaurants, bars, live music, and movie theaters.

Five bus lines are on the doorstep to take you to Union square, China Town, Fisherman's Wharf, the Marina, Haight-Ashbury and Golden Gate park. You are central to all the great tourist destinations within the city.

You can buy 3 – 7 day bus passes starting at $ 22.00 giving you unlimited access to buses and cable cars. The regular price for Cable ride one way is $ 6.00. and the bus is $ 2.00. These passes can be purchased at the information kiosk at the SFO Airport.

Transportation from SFO Airport:

1) Super Shuttle: http:// (website hidden) /Locations/SFOAirportShuttleSanFrancisco.aspx. The cost is $ 17.00 for the first passenger and $10.00 for the second. Need to reserve at least 24hr ahead.

2) Bart, the train, from SFO to Civic Center, grab bus 38 or a taxi to my place ( +/- $ 22.00)

3) Taxi is approximately $ 60.00 depending on traffic.

Parking options:
Street parking is limited to 2 hours Mon-Fri in my neighborhood as it is in many others. San Fransisco is a pedestrian friendly town with an excellent transit system but if you do have a car there are parking lots for up to $ 20.00 a day or you can park the car in Richmond district (west of my neighborhood) where there are no time limitations and come back here by bus.

I have a very friendly German Shepherd who loves guests and befriends them within seconds. However, I can keep her in my room on a different level if you prefer. I have two shy cats who hide from guests.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • We had a great time in San Fransisco. The room is spacious with a very comfortable bed and separate entrance for privacy. The house is in a good location; as it's in the centre of SF, every 'must see' area (Golden Gate Park, Presidio, Downtown, Fisherman's wharf) feels like an equal distance to travel. We had a nice chat with Sylvie, and enjoyed having her pets around.

  • My wife & I had booked a 3 night stay at Sylvie's & subsequently Sylvie had to leave town unexpectedly. She contacted us & assured us that we were still welcome & would make arrangements to make sure we'd still be able to use her facilities. A fellow airbnb associate helped Sylvie out. All went smoothly for us. Sylvie's place was very comfortable & we made good use of the public transit that was available nearby.

  • Nous avons eu beaucoup de plaisir à être dans la maison de Sylvie qui a malheureusement du se rendre au près de sa maman très malade en Belgique. Sylvie a tout organisé à l'avance et avait demandé à une autre personne de nous accueillir et nous présenter la maison. Ce qui fut fait parfaitement et jusqu'à la fin. L'appartement est tout à fait comme décrit, il est bien situé car proche du bus pour aller au centre. Notre chambre était parfaite, propre et confortable tout comme la salle de bain. Nous avons donc bénéficié de la maison tout entière ce qui fut très appréciable. L'appartement est calme la nuit.

  • We hadden een heerlijke tijd bij Sylvie! We logeerden in een ruime, mooie kamer, met aparte ingang en mochten een eigen badkamer gebruiken. Alles was zeer netjes en verzorgd, we kregen handdoeken en mochten gebruik maken van de keuken. We voelden ons meteen welkom! Sylvie is een spontane, lieve, open dame, die tijd nam om ons tips te geven over San Francisco. Sylvies huis is goed gelegen: in een rustige buurt waar we ons ook 's avonds veilig voelden. San Francisco is immens groot: het huis ligt niet aan de zee (2 bussen nodig), maar er is wel een directe verbinding naar de Golden Gate Bridge. In de onmiddellijke omgeving zijn 2 bushaltes, zeer dichtbij is een restaurantje waar we lekker ontbeten hebben en er zijn 2 supermarkten in de buurt.

  • Sylvie was a helpful host with good suggestions on where to go. (I recommend Ella's for breakfast and a tour of the Precipita Eyes murals.) The room was clean and inviting, and having my own (full) bathroom was a big plus. Although I am American, Sylvie also hosts many Europeans and it was interesting to hear about the different styles of travel of different nationalities. And Sylvie makes great croissants!

  • Sylvie was a very terrific host. She was really helpful with tips about the town. The house is very conveniently located to public transport and opportunities for shopping in the supermarket. I celebrated my birthday during my stay and Sylvie surprised me with a dinner and a bottle of champagne. I enjoyed my stay very much.

  • Sylvie was very helpful, providing a map with a great driving itinerary for us on our first full day in San Fran along with recommendations for restaurants in the area. Parking was typical 2hr parking Mon-Fri from 8am-to 6pm except street cleaning day(s) and all day on weekends (from what I recall), and we were lucky enough to find free parking very close by for the 3 days we were there. Location was close to MUNI and walking distance to Divisadero and a little bit further to Filmore for great restaurants. Safe neighbourhood and comfortable bed to sleep in every night. Thanks for a nice stay Sylvie!
