Lots of natural light. Family-friendly neighborhood with great local restaurants and shops in walking distance. Good access to public transportation. Lower floor of our home, with private entrance. Parking rarely a problem.
The apartment is in our house, but we aren't very noisy people. It's perfect for families, or groups of individuals who don't necessarily want to share beds. It isn't very fancy, but clean, comfortable, and spacious. The neighborhood is wonderful, safe, and friendly, but it can get windy and chilly on summer afternoons and evenings. The apartment is large by San Francisco standards. It can accommodate up to 6 people for an extra fee. The bedroom has a full size bed, and a single bed. There are two full-size fold-out futons in the living room.
There is a private entrance at the side of the house, with a motion activated light in the passage-way. The door opens into a small common hallway just outside the apartment. There is a door into the apartment itself. We occasionally use the hallway to access the garage which is on the same floor.

We are available for consultation and recommendations, especially about local choices. We're happy to be as involved as we're able, and also happy to leave you completely alone if that's what you prefer. We try to have some basics available in the apartment so you won't have to buy them (e.g. salt, pepper, olive oil, basic spices) and the kitchen has basic utensils for simple meals. If you need anything else, you're welcomed to ask. We can't guarantee it, but will help if we can.
We speak English and Spanish.
We (as well as the neighbors) do have a dog, and although he sometimes barks, he's very friendly and has a lot of experience with children. You can have as much or as little interaction with him as you like.
This isn't a good space for you if you want to have loud or late parties. It's very important to me that everyone be respectful of the neighbors.
Please, no smoking! Not even with the windows open. And if you are a smoker, go all the way to the back yard or to the street to smoke. When you smoke between the houses, the smoke comes into our house as well as the neighbors'.
Please be conscious of the drought and conserve water: take shorter showers, and don't run water continuously while brushing teeth, washing dishes, etc.
My family and I have been guests with Air BNB for many years, but are new to hosting. We are happy to be involved with our guests as much or as little as they prefer. We speak Spanish and English.
