About the Homestay
I am single and live alone in a two bedroom apartment. I am a filmmaker and teach cinema studies here at several colleges.
The apartment is quite large. One room is used for my film studio and the bedroom is off the studio. These rooms have a door for privacy. The apartment is in the center of the night life in San Francisco. Located in the heart of the Barbary Coast. City Lights bookstore is around the corner along with numerous restaurants and bars. You would have access to the kitchen, television in the living room, internet and your bedroom will be private.
Beautiful and stunning viewsof Financial District and Chinatown from my large picture windows in the living room and back porch. Windows are double paned and tinted.
The apartment is located in the Telegraph Hill/North Beach area rich with artists, coffee shops, restaurants, unique bars, historic Vesuvio's Cafe, the Cafe Trieste; Tosca's and many others. It up the street from Cafe Zoetrope owned by Francis For Coppola. Some days you can see at the Cafe enjoying coffee and the neighborhood. This is quite a unique and lively part of San Francisco.
The apartment is perfect for first time visitors. It is also ideal for those returning to San Francisco because of location and ease of transportation.
There is very limited street parking. However there is a city owned garage nearby with reasonable daily rates.

I'm really satisfied with my stay. Dominic is a very nice person with a great personality. He was always available to answer my questions and to help me whenever I needed. The house is well located and very cosy, and the view from the roof is amazing. I would definitely repeat this experience!
Dominic is a wonderful host. He helped me a lot during my first visit to the USA. We had some great conversation. The flat is really nice, and very well located, it is close to the best parts of SF. I would love to come back once.
Thank you Dominic!
Dominic was a helpful, friendly and considerate host, and always available if I had any questions. I would recommend him - his home is in a great location - safe and convenient to many sites.
Dominic is a wonderful host, and very interesting character.
The location is great, and the roof is awesome!
