Louise and Jim were great and very welcoming! The place was clean and cute and just a 5 min walk to the subway (BART). Also very close to Diamond St. with a delicious mexican place ($5 nachos - so tasty) and italian pizza. They both had great tips and advice on cable cars, things to see, parking, and helped us much beyond what would have been required. It was easy to come and go, but we did manage to sit and talk for a bit which was very nice! Would recommend. Thanks again :)
Louise and Jim were so incredibly kind and welcoming for me and my friend for our two night stay. We immediately felt at home, as if we were family friends coming to visit. The house is beautiful and so comfortable, and located in a GREAT spot of San Francisco. Very convenient location to the BART station and surprisingly easy to get to from the highway. The room itself is cozy and easily accommodated my friend and I. Each morning Louise and Jim had very sweetly prepared coffee/tea and croissants for us, and Jim was very helpful with giving us tips and directions to sites to see. My friend and I very much enjoyed our morning conversations with him. A big thank you to Louise and Jim for welcoming us into their lovely home!!!!!
We had a lovely stay here. Louise and Jim were very friendly and helpfull. Their home was near a bart-station so we could easely get downtown. And we didn't have to worry about parking, because there was a spot for us on their driveway.
For us it was the first time with airbnb and we loved it! Louise and Jim were very nice people and friendly and helpful hosts and the area is very good as a base for a citytrip. The underground is walkable and close to their house are some nice little restaurants and bars. We definitely recommand these guys!
Adresse parfaite pour découvrir San Francisco. Quartier sympa, calme et proche des transports en commun. Facile d'accès depuis l'aéroport. Chambre conforme à nos attentes, on se sent tout de suite chez soi. Nous avons passé 4 merveilleuses nuits. Louise et Jim sont charmants et très serviables. Ils ont géré notre problème de valise perdue d'une façon remarquable. Grâce à eux, nous avons passé un séjour à SF génial. Et quel plaisir de converser avec Louise en Français... Une adresse à recommander sans hésiter !
Our stay was terrific! Louise was so friendly and nice--we had coffee and croissants with her one morning for breakfast. We wish we could have stayed longer! The house is beautiful, clean, and exactly as pictured. Our room was very comfortable. We had a car, so the parking space came in handy. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a place to stay in SF.
Also--if you're hesitating to stay here because you're not a dog person, have no fear! We generally aren't dog people, but we LOVED their dog. She is really quiet and unobtrusive and never barked or jumped on us, etc. She really didn't pay much attention to us.
It has been great staying with Louise and Jim. They are so nice and helpfull with anything. They made coffe for us in the morning and served crousiant. We will highly regement staying at their place. If we come back we will defintely stay at their place :-)

About the Host, Louise And Jim
We love keeping active, body, mind and soul. Jim runs three times a week, works on his art, reads, does house projects and volunteer work. He loves watching sports. Louise teaches creative writing classes and writes books--and 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.
We also still love to camp and Jim recently climbed to the top of Telescope Peak in Death Valley. We love meeting new people. We're also both independent people and understand and respect the need for privacy!
