As a fourth generation San Franciscan, I enjoy sharing my home and the history of San Francisco, if asked. I live in a very unique neighborhood as it was one of the few that survived the 1906 earthquake and fire. As a result, there is a mixture of historic Victorians and ultra modern architectural homes like my own and great views. It is also a neighborhood with lots of parks and nature.
I am an active individual, enjoy staying fit and healthy in mind, body and spirit. I have traveled extensively in Europe and stayed in hosted homes/rooms for many years before aibnb ever existed - I know how to be a good host and guest, when to engage and when not to. My newly landscaped garden reflects my interest in the natural world - I love getting out to the nearby hiking, beaches, and exploration that we have right here near San Francisco.
