Very clean,comfortable, private bedroom with private bathroom down the hall-- sleeps two, and parking space included in our spacious Glen Park home. Free wireless Internet access.

Glen Park is a wonderful, quiet, friendly neighborhood with great restaurants, cafes, bookstore with weekly events, a great market and new library. We’re up the street from San Francisco’s unique Glen Park Canyon where you can take walks! You are one BART stop away from the Mission District which has numerous restaurants.
Comfortable bed has 400 count Egyptian sheets and room has plenty of drawer and closet space. There is also a desk with drawers for storage space. Your private bathroom has a shower and a drawer for all your necessities.

Good coffee, a variety of tea and croissants in the morning!
We recently added a hypo-allergenic dog, Ella, to our house. Louise has asthma and allergies--so Ella doesn't shed at all and will just want to give you affection(if you want it--up to you!)

We love keeping active, body, mind and soul. Jim retired as director of a senior citizens center, and Louise retired as an English and creative writing professor at the local community college. She now teaches small memoir workshops and Jim teaches history classes. We both love to interact with people of all ages. Jim runs three times a week, works on his art, reads, does house projects and volunteer work. He loves watching sports. We both love reading both fiction and non-fiction, visiting museums, watching movies, seeing plays, visiting with family and friends and experiencing the great outdoors. We love meeting new people from all around the world. We travel back East once a year to visit family, and Louise recently taught a workshop in St. Thomas where her sister lives. We love to travel in California, as well. Louise went to the U. of Wisconsin and keeps up with college friends and she and Jim both attended the University of Buffalo. We visit Buffalo where Jim grew up and New York City where Louise grew up! We also have grandchildren in Connecticut so love to visit the East Coast.
We also still love to camp and Jim recently climbed to the top of Telescope Peak in Death Valley. We're also both independent people and understand and respect the need for privacy!
