I (Arnold) am a San Francisco native born and raised in the Haight-Ashbury. A baker/chef/restauranteur/consultant by trade. We own Raison d'etre Bakery, a large wholesale bakery which I founded in 1994. Formerly, executive chef and owner/partner of two very successful SF restaurants, EOS (phone number hidden)) and Bacar (phone number hidden)), recently wrapped up a 4 year executive consulting position with E&O Asian Kitchen which still operates in SF Union Square.
My wife (Amy) is a Sacramento, California native and Cal Berkeley graduate. Hailed from the tech industry to a Masters in Transpersonal Psychology. In addition she worked more recently as an Experience Lead at IDEO. Today she continues with her private coaching practice... (website hidden)
We also the blessed parents of a 5 year old boy and 1 year old girl.
We are those friends.. the ones that will host, throw or attend a party at a moments notice. We ooze the word "hospitality", So you are in good hands and we take pride on the style of the apartment and its amenities.
Well traveled as individuals, couple and a family. Domestically, Europe, Asia, Mexico, South America and the South Pacific.
For those culinary explorers, we can give you tips to the newest and/or best restaurants and possibly get you reservations. Forget the hotel concierge, most of them don't eat out!
UPDATE: As of July 1st, we have relocated to Fair Oaks, Sacramento where Amy is from to be closer to family. But I (Arnold) travels to SF a couple of days a week.
We still maintain an amazing apartment as remote hosts and we're only a text away for tips, recommendations and to answer any questions.
The family that lives in the house are NOT hosts. Please do not disturb them. We also ask our Airbnb guest to keep the noise down to a minimum out of respect as they will do equally.
