After spending my adult years living on a sheep farmlett in Sebastopol and raising my family and coming often to San Francisco got the travel bug and found an opportunity for change so change happened.
Have travelled often to Argentina, a random place where strange things always happen. Enjoy the wonderful, interesting international people who come annually to Argentina to immerse themselves in the energetic activities, diverse landscape, and for me the tango and Folkdance culture.
I have always loved dancing. Now that my children are super responsible adults, it has been possible to pursue dance on a more intense level. Since college in Spain, living in a Spanish speaking country had been my desire. I was invited in January 2009 to BsAs to help teach Lindy Hop, specifically Balboa, at a Lindy Hop Festival. Went tango dancing one night and got completely hooked during a tanda of Calo, a composer of romantic tangos. A tanda is a group of 3-4 songs with some type of commonality that one dances with one partner. Tango either speaks to you or not, what we dance is not show tango that people usually think of but a more personal and intimate dance connection.
It is a pleasure to be able to live a bit of a gypsy lifestyle and travel to cities where I also dance, managing the rentals all day and tango dancing all night, literally. Sleep sometimes suffers. The past two years though, must say, have spent more time in California, have computer will travel.
Love to cook so every rental kitchen is fully equipped. Hiking, skiing, decorating, design work and music are also my passions. Read a lot more before tango but still find time for at least a book a month. Suggestions are welcome!
In order to keep things running smoothly I spend time in each unit to make sure that all is in good repair.
Many return guests are now friends which is rewarding.

When looking for this property I wanted something with a view which I could use for my family when we came into the city as well as to share with others who come to visit San Francisco. When I found this building I fell in love with the location, central but on a quaint and quiet street, the sound of the cable cars and the thoughtful design of the spaces. The property has been given historical preservation status by the city of San Francisco being a prime example of typical construction for multi-unit housing around the turn of the century. Each owner has updated it a bit, fortunately, always in keeping with the vintage feel and with an appreciation for the history of the area. It is my belief that I have owned this property longer than any of the previous owners.
Have always loved entertaining and this is a way to share my love for San Francisco with others and make sure that they have the optimum housing experience during their visit.
Staying in one of my apartments is much more like living in San Francisco. There is less pressure and hassle than a standard hotel and one gets to know a neighborhood better shopping in the local mini markets and stores. The location is the very best in San Francisco for getting around with or without a car and we are very central to public transportation and walking distance to most tourist destinations. I recommend that you skip the car and just rent for a day or two when you want to explore outside the city.
Over the years many rental clients have become good friends and return each year to the same apartment or house. Being the host to these return guests is the most rewarding part of my job. I have also enjoyed hosting many opera singers, artists, nice families that want to have a more homey experience in San Francisco, families where a family member is facing a health challenge and needs a secure homey environment, couples going through fertility treatments, ice skating rink managers in for a season, local San Franciscans displaced due to remodels or repair work on their own homes as well as many of my neighbors parents and family members, rather a second bedroom for the neighborhood. I take the responsibility of my visitors vacation/family time seriously.

We have stayed in the middle apartment twice now on our summer vacations. It is most wonderful and has greatly enhanced the San Francisco experience. The centralized location, decorations, cost and convenience of parking have all combined to make this our favorite vacation spot. Really want to try the penthouse level on our next trip back.
This property is very true to the images that you see. The views from the top unit are great. Tastefully furnished and cozy, the condo is well stocked (the owner thoughtfully provides all initial basic supplies including shampoos, soap, etc.) Located in a terrific upscale neighborhood of Nob Hill, walking distance to almost all main attractions and if not Uber rides are pretty inexpensive. Great little local restaurant/cafe seconds away (put your name on the list if you can, gets busy) and a small neighborhood gourmet grocery store 1.5 blocks away where they cook something fresh every night if you you'd like to eat in. The owner is very nice, might take a little time to get back to you but always replies back when it matters quickly. Staying here made us get a real feel for SF, a beautiful City that it is! Would definitely come back.
Jennifer was quite responsive in accomodating my wife and I due to a last minute change of plans with another owner. We were fortunate to have the third floor for an extended period. Everything was as good - or better than - promised. Great views to the North and East from the roof top deck. Being an older wooden house, we were prepared for at least some noise from the lower floors. Surprisingly, there was little noise in spite of both being occupied. The neighborhood was quiet too. As an upscale area, it doesn't have a lot of bars and consequently it's safe to wander about later at night. While we used taxis frequently, we probably should have investigated using the many Ride/Share programs operating in SF. We loved walking in the City and found most everything charming in some fashion or other. All and all, the third floor unit was nicely decorated, comfortable and well furnished.
We stayed for two weeks on the first floor (European) of the apartment. The host was very responsive in handling my inquiry. She also gave a very detailed and clear direction on how to enter the apartment.
The apartment itself is in a quiet, clean, safe, and hilly neighbourhood. We personally liked the area, but I could imagine some people may want more colourful and lively quarter. Public transport is very accessible. There are two groceries just around the corner.
The photographs give good indication about what the apartment looks like. Everything works well, except the hairdryer, but the host was very helpful in finding the replacement.
The host also refunded the guarantee money promptly.
We had an enjoyable stay in the second floor apartment. It was clean and very spacious. the location was close to the cable cars and in a very nice neighbourhood. It is in a very central to many attractions. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, etc. We would definitely return but think the apartment with the roof top deck would be great particularly if the weather is good. We noticed a lot of decks in the area. The Nob Hill Cafe is very good both for eat in and take out. Also the Whole Foods is a short cable car away - we stocked up on supplies.
We loved staying at this Nob Hill property and were thrilled NOT to use a hotel. The location is excellent and removed from immediate tourist surroundings, however convenient to walk any where. Our family of five fit beautifully into the one bedroom. We found the beds extremely comfortable. The kitchen is ideal for everyone's snacks, coffees, teas and left overs. Very comfortable. We rented a car so that we could drive around the Bay area and thoroughly enjoyed having a garage and parking space.
My granddaughters and i had the best stay ever. I never imagined such a beautiful location would be offered to us. The location was perfect and the owner, Jennifer was delightful to get to know. She was very accessible and helpful and i especially appreciated that she and her apartment is family friendly.
