General overview

Our 1913 Edwardian Craftsman home is in a quiet neighborhood named 'The Richmond District', between the Golden Gate and Presidio national parks, yet still in San Francisco city with easy access to all the city has to offer. **COVID-19: Our home will be thoroughly cleaned and surfaces disinfected before an exchange. We will be extremely careful to leave your house very clean. While SF is slowly opening up, there are some fabulous national parks and scenic walks near our home. You will still have lots to explore in the city! We are interested in short stays within a few hours drive of SF, or longer 1-2 week stays within a days drive**

Our area is known as the 'Richmond District' and is on the west side of San Francisco. It is a quiet, safe, family-friendly area, with the huge advantage of both being in the city and close to nature. Our house is a few blocks from both the Presidio national park and Golden Gate park, within walking distance of the De Young museum, the California Academy of Science, Conservatory of Flowers, Botanical Gardens, and the Japanese Tea Garden. There are several playgrounds in the area and many, many ethnic restaurants (Chinese, Thai, Burmese, Moroccan, Japanese, etc.) within walking distance. Peet's coffee shop, Walgreens, Joe's Ice Cream, pizza parlor within a couple of blocks. The Presidio and Lincoln golf courses and a very scenic hike on the Land’s End Coastal Trail are nearby, as well as our favorite scenic beach - China Beach.

Getting around

A car is not essential, as the frequent bus services (bus #'s 31, 28, 38, 5) can bring you to downtown San Francisco, Ocean Beach, the Golden Gate Bridge, about 20-35 minutes in any direction. We have some bikes you can borrow and there are also bike-for-hire stands nearby. There are interesting walking trails all over San Francisco. If you hope to explore the Bay Area, we do have a parking space for one car in the garage and are just five minutes drive from the Golden Gate Bridge, with easy access to the Marin Headlands, Sausalito, Muir Woods and the Wine Country (Sonoma and Napa). www.walkscore.com gives our address: "Walkscore of 98 - Daily errands do not require a car Transit Score of 71 - Nearby: 23 bus, 0 rail Bike Score of 83 - Flat as a pancake, good lanes"

Member description
Our family loves to travel! We have been exchanging our home for over 12 years and have more than 25 exchanges (with reviews) logged on another home exchange website. We love introducing our children to new cultures, languages, and sights and hope they will continue to travel with us for a long time to come. With both school and work happening at home for the time being, we are hoping to take advantage and do some traveling! We are open to all destinations with decent wifi, within a day's drive of San Francisco. We keep a very neat, clean, and organized home and will be respectful and careful in yours.
