My garden:
There is a picnic corner where we set out a blanket when the weather permits. The labyrinth is designed for walking on -- either following the path or stepping on the border rows. The path is planted with chamomile, and the border is outlined with erodium.

There is a little play house which now functions as a garden shed. It offers several perches from which to enjoy your morning coffee.

Supervised children are welcome in my home. In my garden, there is nothing toxic as far as I know, but lots of rocks and snails that could go in a curious mouth. Note that the price is for two guests, and a third person (yes, I do consider children people!) requires pre-approval and an extra charge.

Guest access

My home is organized so that my guests can be completely independent. I live upstairs. The laundry room is just outside the guest entrance. The kitchen, bedroom and bathroom are exclusively for my guest (I have only one listing). The entrance my guests use is separate from the main house, and the only people you will encounter in the garden would be me, or my friends, or the occasional raccoon.

Interaction with guests

Other than when I am out at an opera rehearsal, or playing concerts or recording sessions, I am available just upstairs if needed. My guest space is organized for an independent person or two, and I recognize that most people are here to rest. I've had many lively meals and conversations with various guests, and enjoy sharing my take on the world when it is convenient for my visitors.

The neighbourhood

Daly City is centrally situated close to San Francisco International Airport (SFO), and has easy accessibility to the Bay Area’s rapid transit network and highway system. You would find a good rest spot here wherever your Bay Area travel takes you -- through the redwoods to Santa Cruz, to the vibrant Silicon Valley, into endlessly entertaining San Francisco, or across one of the beautiful bridges into the East Bay or Marin County. Guests have chosen this location for its convenience to world-class golf courses, San Francisco State University, the BART system, the Janet Pomeroy Center, downtown San Francisco start-ups, Silicon Valley, and Daly City Bikram Hot Yoga. Many have found it an ideal location for an overnight rest during a longer California vacation or business trip. It's a 10-15 minute drive from my home to the airport.

Westlake Village is an ethnically diverse neighborhood with a broad mix of young families and working professionals. We are within a 10-minute walk of shopping, restaurants, coffee shops, and a library (and horse rides on the beach...). The 120 and 122 SamTrans bus lines provide good transit connectivity with the rest of the Bay Area -- bus stops are just minutes from my front door, and the BART train system is 1.5 miles from my door.

I live in one of the mid-century modern developments that shot up around America's cities in the years following World War II. The song about the "ticky-tacky houses on the hillside"? That was written about my neighborhood! My neighbors in Daly City are a broad mix of American faces, with an ethnic predominance of Filipino immigrants -- some say there are more Pinoy in Daly City than in Manila. In the neighborhood hangouts you will hear Tagalog, Cantonese, Russian, Spanish, Mandarin, Arabic, Burmese, Armenian -- and of course a million variations of English.

The ocean is a 15-minute walk from my door, the local library is well stocked and vibrant, and the village is a 10-minute walk, with a variety of good basic food choices: Vietnamese Pho Noodles, Korean Tofu House, Thai Garden, Chipotle, a great Chinese dim sum restaurant, Burgermeister and Nations Hamburgers, and the best (and smallest) sushi bar for miles around, Tani Sushi. You can stock up on good groceries at Trader Joe's, and the double-whammy of Krispy Kreme Donuts and In-n-Out Burgers are on the way to the BART station.

The Olympic Club, Lake Merced, and Harding Park golf courses are here, and I hope one of my guests will take a horseback ride down onto Thornton Beach one day and tell me how it is -- my allergies have kept me away from that local attraction, and I imagine it would be a great outing, just minutes from my home.

Bicyclists are often passing up over the hill, traveling the beautiful and famous highway that hugs the Pacific Ocean. One of my favorite beach walks is just down the road in Pacifica, where you can watch the surfers braving some of the world's most challenging waves. Or go watch the cliff-diving hang gliders at nearby Fort Funston.

Getting around

Parking is free and easily located on the street in front of my home.

These neighborhoods were designed for drivers, but public transit is also close by.

The SamTrans bus system Routes 120 and 122 connect to the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) Daly City Station.

Take any northbound BART train to go through San Francisco, through the heart of the Mission, down the road from the Castro, past the city's Civic Center cultural treasures, by the Powell Street cable car hub near Union Square and the theater district.

The Embarcadero Station is the last stop before the train goes under the Bay, and is a good destination point for seeing San Francisco's Ferry Building and Market Street shopping. From the Powell Street Station you can take a traditional cable car up over the hill to Chinatown, Fisherman's Wharf, Ghirardelli Square, Pier 39, the Exploratorium, the Aquarium -- or you can take a MUNI bus, which costs less than the cable car.

I've often taken BART to Embarcadero Center Station to visit the Ferry Building. There is a ferry that takes you across the Bay to Alameda (and back), and the Ferry Building itself has great shopping and restaurant options. The views all around that area of the City and the Bridges are spectacular, and there is a lot of happy street activity, including the nightly exuberance of the Bay Bridge light show. It is also where AT&T Park is, home of the Giants.

If you wanted to visit the Asian Art Museum, or some of San Francisco's cultural life (the Opera, the Symphony, Broadway shows), the Civic Center BART station would take you to that part of town.

If you wanted to go to Golden Gate Park -- the magnificent DeYoung Museum, the Academy of Sciences, the Japanese Tea Garden, Stow Lake paddle-boats (with geese and hot dogs), the Queen Wilhelmina Tulip Garden and windmill (across the street from the Pacific Ocean), and miles of paths and gardens -- SamTrans/ MUNI take you there. Some of the museums have free days -- they're very crowded, but it's a nice way to save some money.

From Golden Gate Park you would have a short taxi ride (or MUNI) to many colorful San Francisco neighborhoods, like Haight-Ashbury, or Japantown, the Presidio, or Clement Street, or the Golden Gate Bridge -- you will have a wonderful time no matter where you go, and wish for many more days!

The "Trip Planner" at the transit website -- use the numerals 5 1 1 (website hidden), no spaces -- estimates a little over an hour to make the trip to Fisherman's Wharf on a Wednesday afternoon in September, walking a few blocks to the SamTrans bus stop, taking the bus to BART, then a MUNI bus from Powell Street to Fisherman's Wharf.

From SFO to my home there are options. The simplest would be Lyft or uber, or a taxi, which would be around $35+tip, and would take you right to my door. There are Shuttle Vans -- also good, around $20 per person. Tell the driver you're going to the Westlake District of Daly City, and give my address. Or you can take BART north to Daly City Station, then transfer to a #120 SamTrans bus and tell the driver you want to get off at Glenrose Ave. That trip would cost around $10 per person (you buy a BART ticket, then the bus is around $2)

Other things to note

Daly City is immediately south of San Francisco, and my corner of it is next to the Sunset District near Ocean Beach. The San Francisco Zoo is close, and the #18 MUNI can take you from the edge of Daly City all the way north through Golden Gate Park and the Presidio.

House Rules
No smoking
Not suitable for pets
No parties or events
Check in is anytime after 2PM

I am interested in sharing my home with people who will appreciate and respect my home and neighborhood. I'll try to be a good host, and you be a good guest!

Sorry, no smoking of any kind, especially in the garden, and no pets. I have severe allergies to animals, and it's not just a whim :-)

Use the parking space in front of my house if it's available, and don't infringe on anyone's driveway. For your own benefit, check out the posted street parking restrictions: the Daly City police are vigilant about curbed wheels (turn the wheels downhill into the curb when you park), and there is opposite side street cleaning Monday and Tuesday mornings.

Check with me first if you plan to do laundry. You're welcome to do a load, but we have to coordinate :-)

This is my home, and my guest suite is not convenient for gatherings. Do not invite guests to visit you.

The best Airbnb place we've stayed in. The house has everything you need and Patty provides some very good tips and is very welcoming. I'd probably recommend staying here if you have own car, but if you do, it's brilliant. Would certainly stay here again.

Patty is incredible! She goes above and beyond to ensure her suite offers the comforts of home which was really wonderful when three weeks in and missing home! Great kitchen facilities so we could cook our own meals and a beautiful garden out back. I went running early morning and felt safe in the nice neighbourhood. Easy drive into central San Fran. We loved this place so much and will definitely stay again when we come back. :)

Our stay with Patty was just what we needed after a long flight over from Boston. Comfortable bed, peaceful garden, and beautiful music. We'll definitely be back!

Patty's place is awesome! The tub was great, the bed was comfy, the entire suite is fully stocked and has everything you need. The parking is easy and Patty's piano playing was so soothing. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your place!

It's funny to try to describe yourself! I live modestly in one of the most beautiful places on earth, play in the orchestra of one of the premier opera companies in the world, try to eat right and keep moving well, and tend to look on life's adventures with a smile in my heart.
