As I mention before, this is not a party house. This house is intended for quiet guests who want to explore the city and come home to a nice, clean, comfortable space to recharge.
Street parking is manageable. This is a great choice if you have a car. While most SF neighborhoods require a parking permit in order to park for any longer than two hours, my neighborhood has no time restrictions for parking, so you can leave the car for as long as you want on the streets which does not have parking meters. Guests need to be aware of the street cleaning and pay close attention to the signs. South Van Ness, Folsom, and the small streets in between are free to park; others are meter from 9-6., Monday through Saturday. Sundays are free.
My street, South Van Ness, is a busy street. It has become busier a month ago, when the city detour the cars from Mission Street to the streets next to Mission St. The bar on the corner, The Phone Booth, has been voted several time, one the best neighborhood bar, which is awesome, but sometimes at closing time can be noisy if you are a light sleeper. I provide earplugs for those lighter sleepers like me.
We recycle and compost. We have designated places for each. When your recycling or compost bag are full, please place it on the outside deck, and I take care of it.
The laundry facility is for guests who are staying 4 days or longer. There is a wash and fold place a block away from the house. They will be glad to take care of your load.
Most rules pertain to treating the house as if it were your own - I cherish my home.
This is no smoking indoors, but it's ok to smoke on the deck if you close the door. Use the kitchen for light breakfast, but no cooking.
No use of the laundry facility if you are a guest for less than 4 days.
No use of the kitchen for cooking expect for light breakfast, coffee, and tea or warming up food already made.

I am originally from Brazil and came to San Francisco in 1980 to learn English. I fell in love with the lifestyle and freedom that San Francisco offers and for awhile now I’ve considered it my second home. I spent my career in the social services area assisting people with developmental disabilities to improve their lives and integrate them into society. The best part of my job was building personal relationships with my clients and their families. While I’ve recently retired, I’m looking forward to being part of the airbnb community not just because I love to meet new people but also to be a part of guests’ San Francisco experience by sharing the home that I cherish.
As for my personal interests, I enjoy being active, especially in nature, listening to music, dancing, and spending time with my friends and family. I love to travel and have visited several countries in Europe, including Italy (my favorite), Argentina, Canada, and Trinidad and Tobago. When I feel the urge to reconnect with my culture and see my family, which happens every year, I travel to Rio de Janeiro.
