Guestbook comments from the owner
We loved our stay on this cute street. The garden is absolutely amazing and we actually enjoyed the rain ! It never rains where we are at. Though our trip was cut short for work, we really enjoyed our time staying here. The location is very good within walking distance to transit, restaurants. We definitely will recommend your place to our family and friends and would stay here again. Thank you,

Hi, both my husband Mike and I were born and raised, met, married and raised our three beautiful children in this wonderful city. I am a 4th generation San Franciscan. Our early 1900's home boasts of vintage charm and warmth for all those that visit. Come see for yourself !

There were originally two houses built in the West Portal area in the early 1900s, ours still proudly stands, the other was destroyed. This house has survived numerous earthquakes.

PICTURE PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
This property was quite a find! It was identical to the web site photos, however the photos couldn't quite capture the coziness and tasteful amenities.
Being a "clean freak" I was totally impressed with the pristine condition of the apartment, it was so well cared for.
Linda was very helpful regarding restaurants, Muni logistics, etc and the BEST perk was her lovely and delicious breakfast surprises each day!
I have already recommended this property to all of my friends, it was awesome and I will be back!

WONDERFUL STAY AT WEST PORTAL

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I enjoyed 4 days in San Francisco and stay at Linda's and Michael West Portal rental. The accommodations and location were fantastic. The muni (public transit) is only a five minute walk from the condo and after visiting the sites, it was nice to return to a quite and tranquil environment. The ambience is warm and inviting, the bed was super comfortable and the bathroom with Jacuzzi was fabulous. I loved my morning runs through the neighbourhood and Linda and Michael are great hosts. We highly recommend the West Portal for anyone wanting to visit San Francisco.

WONDERFUL GARDEN RETREAT!

  • 5 of 5
felt as if we were in Europe w/ the ease of walking out the door, finding the muni for the city a block away, as well as the wonderful main street of West Portal w/ shops, restaurants, local flare-a jewel. Only had to walk up the hill through a beautiful footpath to visit our kids in their home a mile away.
The Garden Suite is beautiful, and w/ perfect weather we could enjoy indoors and out. Linda provided us w/ tasty treats every morning, although we never saw her! It was so private and peaceful. After years of staying in the city, this was just a wonderful change of pace and place.

JUSTIN

  • 5 of 5
The suite is wonderful indeed and is a very wise choice for a couple conducting sightseeing in SFO, the location is convenient to go anywhere, and we were initially noticed that the water from shower caddy is not warm enough, later on soon noticed that if you tuen it to the max position, it is righ the temperature you want. If you pay a little attention on the street parking restrictions, you will definitely enjoy the stay there.

CONVENIENT FOR BUSINESS AND PLEASURE

  • 5 of 5
A lovely garden suite with a luxury bathroom and a market fresh breakfast prepared for each morning - convenient to all areas by public transportation. The MUNI station is very close by and an excellent way around the city. If you decide to rent a vehicle during your stay, there is plenty of street parking near the property. A true value for your San Francisco visit!

PERFECT LOCATION AND MORE...

  • 5 of 5
I always hesitate to write about places that I adore. I tend to be a bit selfish in this way. Having said that, I found this West Portal suite to be the perfect respite and jumping off point for my personal adventures. Linda is a fabulous hostess. She is conscientious and detail oriented and made everything simple and up front from beginning to end. I loved and appreciated the delicious continental breakfast waiting for me each morning. Parking truly is a breeze and you really don't need a car to travel within this beautiful city. West Portal is filled with wonderful restaurants if you don''t want to venture far from your suite. I appreciated the big spa tub, as well, and am looking forward to many more nights staying with Linda. I will definitely be returning to this sweet, suite!
