Apartment - Private room · Oakwood Street, San Francisco, CA 94110, United States

The Space

Enjoy your San Francisco stay in a comfortable, light filled room with QueenSize Bed.
Share the bath with the owner/me.
The other bedroom, also listed:
has a private bath.

Location is excellent, near the trendy Valencia Street corridor, with great transit to all that San Francisco offers. Dolores Park is two blocks away, Mission Dolores is a three block walk and the Castro is eight blocks.

Many options for good food and drink within the block. Valencia Street corridor is only two blocks away!

Now have menus from most of the restaurants on Valencia between 16th and 18th for you to preview.
Will add to the book as you suggest what you'd like to see and would find helpful!

SF water is need to buy bottles. Our HetchHetchy/Yosemite water tests better than most paid-for-by-the-bottle water. I never use a filter and always drink from the faucet.

SF weather is variable. By which I mean it changes from minute to minute, street to street. FAR TOO MANY visitors have to buy extra layers here to be comfortable (yes, even in summer - in fact, especially in summer when the fog rolls in - it's why Mark Twain is quoted as having said "the coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco!)

Guest Access

You have access to the living room, dining area and kitchen plus, of course, the shared bathroom.

Getting around

Excellent public transit - 1.4 blocks to the J-Church streetcar, BART is 6+ blocks away and there are many busses, including (website hidden) bus, within the block.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Jan and her place are wonderful. The apt is right in the heart of the mission and close to public transportation. Jan is friendly and very helpful.

    April 2014
  • Jan is really welcoming! The place is nice, clean and well located in the city.

    April 2014
  • My stay in Jan's apartment exceeded my expectations. She is a warm and cordial host whose home is equally warm, clean, safe and in a vibrant neighborhood. I would be thrilled to stay there on another visit.

    March 2014
  • Had a thoroughly enjoyable stay. The room was clean and well lit with a comfortable bed. The home is nicely decorated and Jan is a delightful and relaxed host. She and I enjoyed some fun conversations over coffee and her knowledge of the city is extensive. Loved it!

    March 2014
  • Wow! Staying with Jan was our first experience with airbnb. She was inviting, accommodating and was available to offer suggestions for places to eat or see around the city. Her home is beautiful, and she welcomed us to her space, breakfast, and use of her belongings. Her little black kitty, Thriller, was the perfect touch to her condo. Jan sure has set the bar high for our next airbnb experience. :)

    March 2014
  • We had an excellent stay at Jan's place for a quick weekend visit. The location is perfect for anyone looking to stay in the Mission. It was also very convenient to get around the city using public transit. Jan provided us with many helpful tips for exploring San Francisco for the first time. We will certainly be back.

    February 2014
  • Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! Location was excellent! The convenience of getting the key was effortless. And Jan was so amazing and nice. She baked cookies and explained to Sylvie and I where everything was how to navigate around the city.

    There are so many amazing restaurants and cafes around it's hard to believe why anyone would want to stay anywhere else.

    Thriller (Jan's cat) was so sweet and to be honest, I'm not a cat person (I have a dog) but Thriller has changed my mind. I might have to get a dog AND cat because of him.


    January 2014
  • Jan was very patient and gave me support when I experienced problem with reservation and she made me feel welcome.
    Cozy apartment in a strategic and nice area of the city.

    December 2013
  • Jan was great with accommodating for our late check in and late check out. Located in a safe yet hip area of the Mission, we enjoyed our 15 minute walk from the Bart station. We also found out the places we wanted to visit- Tartine, Bi-rite, Ike's, and Philz were less than a 10 minute walk away! Jan herself was very welcoming and gave us the necessary breakdown where everything is. I appreciate a host who is on top of it, and has everything ready for our arrival. I would definitely recommend staying here as this will be our go-to place whenever we visit SF!

    December 2013
  • We had a great 3 days in San Fran staying with Jan... Communication was easy and responses were rapid and helpful. Flexible check-in & out which was awesome. Room is comfy and warm, the apartment has everything you need. Location has good links to BART and Muni buses for airport and town trips, also great for exploring The Mission's cafés, bars and restaurants.

Welcome to my home! I’ve lived here in my condo on Oakwood St. for over ten years. Fell in love with San Francisco when I was here in college at SF State and have been 'at home' here since. Since landing in SF I’ve traveled regularly, from Germany to Russia, from Vietnam to China. I love to hike, and belong to the Bay Area Ridge Trail. I'd be happy to recommend local hikes, both long and short! Among the things I enjoy are movies, reading, ballet, progressive thought, and conversation - especially over good food and wine, both out and at my table. You'll be comfortable in my home if you're like previous guests and quite happy with the area you've chosen. My neighborhood is lively, centrally located, and provides plenty to do—if you want, I can recommend restaurants, cafes, theatres, shops and more. We'll enjoy chatting if you wish, I'll leave you alone if you want privacy.
