The Space

This is a great opportunity for families to travel more comfortably than in a hotel. Close to renting a full apartment, you will have plenty of space and can make meals at home. I will be sleeping downstairs, but will leave you with as much independence and privacy as possible. I rent one room under "Classic Bedroom" in Lower Pac Heights, and occasionally rent a second bedroom during holiday/vacation seasons. During those weeks, I intend for the place to be used for families with one or two children.

The first bedroom has brand new, luxurious queen size bed, its own entrance, plenty of closet space, and exclusive use of a bathroom down the hall. The second bedroom has a full bed and a day bed, and a small closet. You will have full access to the living room (with TV, kids games etc.) and my kitchen (but I count on you to clean up and put the things you use in the dishwasher). You may use 2 shelves in the fridge if you would like to have some meals here. Alternatively, there is a Starbucks, Peets coffee, French Cafe, and American breakfast restaurant within just a few blocks (Laurel Village).

This place is fairly central and is a great base to explore to San Francisco, including Fisherman's Wharf, Exploratorium, Academy of Science, several museum, Golden Gate Park, and various neighborhoods of San Francisco. Street parking is limited during the day, but if you have a car, presumably you will use it to go to various place in town. There are a number of restaurant on neighboring Sacramento Street. The popular Fillmore street area is less than 10 blocks away with plenty of restaurants, bars, music, and movie theaters.

Bus lines (phone number hidden) stop within 1 to 4 blocks and go in all directions.

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. Since she was raised with 3 children, she adores them. I also have 2 cats, but they are shy and guest hardly ever see them.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • We had a great stay in San Fransisco. Silvie is a very friendly host and the appartment is very clean. There were some issues while arranging the stay: AirBnb initially listed the wrong price and apparently it didn't add our arrival to her calendar, but she handled the situation well and we managed to work things out perfectly fine.

  • Sylvie's lovely house is situated in a quiet area, 15 minute walk to Filmore district, and 10 minutes to restaurants/supermarket. Sylvie is very helpful, giving us maps and lots of information as soon as we arrived. Would highly recommend.

  • Sylvie ist eine sehr kommunikative und hilfsbereite Gastgeberin. Sie gab uns viele hilfreiche Tips, die zu einzigartigen Erlebnisssen und Eindrücken führten, die man als gewöhnlicher Hoteltourist so nicht erleben können dürfte.Unser Aufenthalt war völlig unkompliziert, Sylvie teilt einfach alles mit dem Airbnb-er. Die Zimmer waren gepflegt, sauber, ein sehr bequemes Doppelbett!! Von Sylvies Wohnung aus sind alle Sehenswürdigkeiten mit dem Auto innerhalb von 10 Minuten erreichbar. Einen Parkplatz in S.F. zu finden ist erstaunlicherweise überhaupt kein Problem.Wichtig:Parkverbote während der Strassenreinigungsdienst durchfährt unbedingt beachten, sonst wird es teuer!

  • This was our first airbnb experience and it was terrific. Sylvie was welcoming and helpful from the beginning. Nothing was too much trouble and she was very helpful providing maps for the local area. The little extras like water bottles and lollies were special.
    The house is lovely, the beds comfy and the dog is friendly . The area is close to downtown and the tourist attractions and buses.
    Thanks again Sylvie.

  • I stayed at Sylvie's place for 3 nights with my friends. Sylvie was really friendly and helpful from the begining. She gave advices where to go and what to visit there even when we had questions she was always happy to help.
    The apartment is located on a nice and calm area and we could easily reach the attractions we wanted to see. The house was really clean and nice. We had enough place in the rooms and the living room was also very spacious.

  • We had a great time staying with Sylvie. She is thoughtful, friendly and easy going, as is her dog Natasha! Sylvie's house is very comfortable, clean and spacious. It is easy to access downtown and the marina area by bus.

    Sylvie had an info pack waiting for us with maps and bus info, and she took the time to go through it with us. Sylvie wanted to make sure we got the best out of SF and we did! She also took the time to child proof her house, as well as lending us some books for Gruff.

    Thanks for a super stay!

  • Sylvie is one of the kindest people I have ever met! When someone else booked my room because I was not familiar with airbnb, she spent hours calling me and trying to arrange another room for me! She picked me up and was there when I needed her help! I definitely recommend her to anyone using airbnb for the first time!

  • Nous avons passé un excellent séjour chez Sylvie.
    La maison correspondait en tout point à la description. Elle est très agréable et nous nous sommes sentis à l'aise tout de suite. Très proches et très pratiques, le bus 38 dessert le centre ville et Trader Joe's est un gros grocery store qui permet de faire ses courses.
    Bien que nous n'ayons pas rencontré Sylvie, nous l'avons eu très souvent par mail et par téléphone. La communication a été très bonne.

  • We started our 3 weeks trip in the US by staying at Sylvie's place in SF and it was a great choice.
    The flat is well sized for a 4 members family with 2 rooms close to a bathroom. You can be independent from the host.
    It is well located in a quite district, not far from main sites of interest. Moreover, it was not that difficult to find place where to park our car for the night.
    We received from Sylvie a warm welcome and she gave us useful advice ( e.g. we had our first giant US breakfast not far from the flat).
    Last point, for French native speakers, Sylvie speaks French and this can make live easier if you don't fill that comfortable with the English language.
