San Francisco Near Sea Cliff

Three bedrooms, with additional queen sofa bed; two full bathrooms and a WC (facilities on all three levels). Two sitting rooms. Full modern kitchen and utility porch with washing machine. Central heating; air-conditioning not needed. Fibre-optic wi-fi; satellite TV.
This is a fully detached Edwardian (1912) house on three levels in a residential neighborhood just south of Sea Cliff and just north of California, Clement, and Geary "High streets." There are three bus lines within two blocks; some have expresss and rapid services as well as local. Also a good area for cycling -- a man's and a woman's cycles provided -- the three San Francisco universities are accessible by cycle from our house (UCSF is up a big hill and SFSU is surrounded by some heavy traffic).
Law Schools include University of California Hastings and USF.
We are between San Francisco's two fine arts museums: lovely walk to Palace of Legion of Honor; easy bike ride to DeYoung Museum in Golden Gate Park. The extensive Asian art collection in the Civic Center is a half-hour bus ride away, SF MOMA a little farther.

Personal NOTES:
We have done many house exchanges, and in future would be open to a recurring swap in Greater London. We would also be happy to hear from other cities in the U.K., U.S., and Canada, and we will respond to all other exchange offers.

About Me
We are a retired couple whose preferred method of travel is house exchange, but occasionally we are away without an exchange partner in our home and then prefer to have a house-sitter or responsible renter.

I had a wonderful exchange this month with my hosts, Dick and Paula. Their home is comfortable and spacious and in an interesting neighborhood in San Francisco, just a block from two bus lines that will get you all over the city. Parking is easy, unlike other San Francisco areas I've stayed in. The downstairs bedroom and bath has its own entrance, which might be handy if rented or traded with two couples. Dick and Paula were great hosts: directions were clear and they left my home in perfect shape. Excellent toni devereaux 11/26/2017 6:07:00 PM
