Description

The space

Enchanted by sparkling panoramic views of San Francisco and its two bridge beauties: The Bay Bridge and The Golden Gate Bridge?

Inspired by the option to dine in, enjoying dining views that only a select few restaurants offer?

Romanced by a crackling cozy fire as you nestle into bed and watch the city lights?

Delighted to find the RARE San Francisco treasure- FREE street parking!- with the airport a simple 15 minute drive away?

Me too. Welcome to my home, which I call the Gratitude House. When I made this my home, I promised I would share its good spirit and enchantment with others, and that’s where you come in. I offer this beautiful retreat to all who wish be transported and inspired.

Come experience a private sanctuary in the back half of this home. This suite is enormous. It has a living room area, a romantic bed area with fireplace overlooking the twinkling San Francisco city lights and the Eucalyptus grove below. There is also a dining room area, with full dining table. Panoramic view windows run along the back width of the home- 25 feet. The suite has hardwood floors throughout, a leather sofa and chair, an armoire, and a wood burning fireplace. You have WiFi. Most travelers will find that I am away during their visit. When I am not away, I am living in the front half of the house and you may not even know I am here. When I am home, I will share the bathroom and perhaps briefly visit the kitchen. The full kitchen is virtually yours to create in, cook in, bake in, and refrigerate goodies as you wish.

My home is atop a very tall hill on Bridgeview Drive, aptly named, which real estate agents have called “San Francisco’s best kept secret” because of the obvious bridge views, the warm sunbelt weather, easy, safe, free street parking, and the quick access to downtown San Francisco. Bridgeview Drive is a unique winding hilltop street with a cozy, neighborly, super-safe atmosphere in a neighborhood called Silver Terrace. I have lived here for 14years and have received only love and assistance from my dear neighbors of this family neighborhood. If you don’t rent a car, the T Muni train is 2 blocks away and runs directly downtown. There are also numerous bus routes that are within 2 blocks.

So welcome to you, traveler, lover, artist, dreamer, visionary- welcome to the Gratitude House. Come see the world and yourself in a new way and leave inspired.

Interaction with guests

I am available 24 hours per day by text or phone to help you with any emergency needs.

Getting around

Many people rent a car because parking is miraculously free and usually quite easy to find. Others find Uber an easy transportation option. Also the T Muni train that goes directly downtown is 2 blocks away. Many bus routes are also two blocks away.

Hi there,
I am a healer, working with Hospice. I am inspired to drink life up, understanding that there is a finite amount of life to be had. I love to travel. My last amazing journey was to the Amazon. Even more memorable than the visual aspects of that trip were the auditory surprises. In addition to the contant vibrational buzzing and hissing in the air, I have 2 words for you, especially if you get to the Amazon: "Howler Monkeys". They truly sound like I imagine dinosaurs would sound. Apparently they get such volume and monster howl from a hole in a bone in their throats. Must be heard to be believed. But I digress! I'm a weekly dancer, pulling out the boots for two step, the retro wear for East Coast swing, and I waltz every chance I get no matter what I'm wearing. I love beautiful found objects. I write poetry and short stories. I have a private psychotherapy practice and teach mindfulness to people who are interested in more resiliency, more ZEST! But I bet if you talked to my friends, they'd note the overall goofy, delighted way I like to carry on with life in general. As Helen Keller said, "Life is a banquet, but most of us are starving to death." So I invite you to come to my home and take a big bite out of life. The time is now.
