I have lived in San Francisco for over 30 years. I am fortunate to own homes in two of the most beautiful parts of California, San Francisco and Lake Tahoe.
Come for an extended visit!

We very much enjoyed our stay with Mary and Richard. The location is great in the Mission District and connection to downtown were lined out to us by Richard and Mary. They also provided us with Clipper cards, which is an easy way to use the public transport around SF. Mary also provided us with details on a nearby launderette, which is right next to a great restaurant/bar. Richard was so kind to offer us a lift to the airport on the day of our departure.
We hope to return to SF and would recommend to anyone, who's looking for a cosy place to stay, to choose the Inner Mission Garden room.
Thanks again for making our stay so very welcoming.

I had a great first Airbnb experience staying at Mary's house! The room was very cozy, and I had my own private bathroom that was clean and stocked with towels and soap/shampoo.
The location of the house is great, very close to public transportation, which I easily took downtown for the conference I was attending and to/from the airport. Her house is located right in middle of the Mission District, and I enjoyed being able to experience a bit more of the local SF flavor that I wouldn't have gotten by just staying at the conference hotel. Mary let me borrow her Clipper card for public transit and gave me maps and guidebooks during my stay that were really helpful in navigating the city.
Mary is a kind and gracious host, and I would definitely recommend her to anyone who is visiting San Francisco!
Mary and Richard are warm and welcoming hosts! I had a great time staying at their place. The house is beautiful and the room is cozy for one person -- you get your own key and can come in/out from the side door. The bed is very comfortable. It's a very clean place and is conveniently located with buses and trains within walking distance. The hosts are very helpful -- upon arrival I was given a BART ticket that just needed to be topped up/reimbursed according to my use of it when I left. There are books and maps available for guests' perusal, and Richard drove me to the station as well, which I really appreciated. Thanks again for welcoming me to your home & SF, Mary and Richard!
great little room in the heart of mission district. great food, coffee and shopping within minutes.
awesome hosts also, do all the extra little things that make for a great stay. awesome choice to stay for san fran adventures.
Mary and Richard are fantastic hosts! The Treehouse condo was just perfect for our family of 8. 4 adults, 4 kids 10 and under. It was very easy to communicate via email, and they sent back very prompt, thoughtful, and thorough information. The condo is very modern and upgraded- heated floors and towel bars were a real treat coming in from the snow, the TV and Playstation equipment easy to operate, handy washer and dryer, and nice kitchen to cook meals in. The kids loved playing the board games like Bingo and had a blast overall. As the condo is 2 levels with the bedrooms situated downstairs, the noise levels were minimized and offered quiet areas at the same time. The location is super convenient to Raley's supermarket, Diamond Peak Ski resort, and Mt. Rose Hwy snow recreation play area for the kids to go sledding. I highly recommend the treehouse for anyone looking for a nice relaxing experience in Tahoe.
We had a great stay with Mary and Richard. They were very flexible about scheduling changes and arrival time. They provided great information about the city and even preloaded clipper passes (the public transportation passes) that really made getting around easy for us! The room is small but comfortable and it is in a great location. I would highly recommend staying here.
At Mary's and Richard's place it was wonderful to stay. They helped me a lot with all the questions I had and gave me many tips and tricks about San Francisco. I would recommend them to all my friends for a stay in SF. Thank you very much - you will stay in a good and wonderful remembering for me. All the best to you both. :)
Our stay at Mary's place was great. The room and house were beautiful and the neighborhood is excellent with many shopping and dining options. The location within walking distance of public transit made it a great home base for our time in San Francisco. Mary and Richard were wonderful hosts who provided excellent suggestions for things to do and how to get around. We had a wonderful time and would absolutely consider staying with them again the next time we are in the city.

Mary and Richard were the most amazing hosts for my stay in San Francisco! Their home is in the most perfect location and they gave excellent recommendations on what to do and see in the city! They were so friendly, their house is gorgeous, and they make it easy to fall in love with the incredible city. Couldn't recommend their place enough and I can't wait to visit again!
We are so glad we chose to stay with Mary and Richard. They provided us with a private bathroom and bedroom and use of their kitchen and living room. They are quiet hosts that gave us lots of privacy but were there to answer questions and to help make our stay in San Francisco pleasant and convenient. The Clipper cards they provided for the transit system were especially helpful and we appreciated the fluffy towels which they changed out 3 x in a week.
The neighborhood is fantastic with loads of restaurants and shops.
I had the pleasure of visiting with Mary & her husband for only one night before leaving them with my place. They are super nice, also bnb host and felt like family at once. It gave me a great level of comfort to have such nice people staying while i was away.
Since they took such great care, there was little for my friend Tiff to do, getting ready for the next guest.....
Mary was a great guest.
While we did not have the chance to meet her due to our travel plans, we met her daughter Megan who was very personable. Mary was communicative before, during and after the stay and through her Airbnb experience gave us suggestions on how we could improve our apartment. She left the apartment clean.
We would gladly host her again anytime!
