Welcome to San Francisco.
I love this city! It has been a great joy over time, to share my enthusiasm with the many guests who have visited here in my family's uniquely San Francisco homes. My family first came here in 1859 and I share their love of the city and it's raucous history.
I have been spoiled in my life with many wonderful educational opportunities- in the United States, (California, Washington State, Cambridge, MA), and in Florence, Italy. Possibly my best learning moments have come from our guests who have come to us over the years from just about every part of the globe. I pride myself as having a good sense of humor, a good ear and an open mind. I love to listen to our guests' stories and hear about their life-experiences.
My personal interests: travel (Cinque Terre, Amalfi Coast, All of Italy, Sweden, Austria, New York, are just a few faves), architecture, food, culture (music, theater ...), history, genealogy, and yes, San Francisco!
Sometimes during the year I am away on the West Coast of Sweden visiting family and friends. In my absence, our friend Amber, is your host. You will be in excellent hands.
I have three golden retrievers, Haakan, Ebba, and Elsa-Vega who live at one of the family homes on Alamo Square. They are available to the guests who wish to meet them when visiting the "Painted Ladies". Because some guests are allergic they are not allowed in guest rooms.
I look forward to meeting you!
