Enjoy your San Francisco stay in a comfortable, light filled room.
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 EXcellent...no 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!)
You have access to the living room, dining area and kitchen plus, of course, the shared bathroom.
Interaction with Guests
Enjoy chatting w guests and happily leave you alone or send you on your way to 'play tourist' in my favorite city!
Just read a couple of reviews...they say it all! GReat neighborhood, very much What'sHappeningNow in SF
Lovely area suggestions:
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.
Other Things to Note
Please do bring at least a windbreaker.
SF is windy and chilly, at least some of the time. I carry/wear my light-weight down parka most of the time - honestly.
-Quiet time is 11-7
-Guests/friends only w prior permission
-Quiet on the stairs and in your room..young one is sleeping in the lower unit/condo below you
- WiFi = MyBnb Password = fabulous
-Lock your door from the inside only
-Clean up after yourself in the kitchen

Parking IS a challenge. Tickets cost $60+ and towing $500+. If at all possible, do without a car here in SF.
Jan was a wonderful host, availing herself to offer information on San Francisco before she left the house for her own activities. It was also great chatting with her at the end of the day, sharing a bit of our lives in the short stay at her place. :)
The area is surrounded by great food - there's Tartine Bakery and Bi-rite Ice Cream that both have perpetual queues... be sure to check them out if you do stay with Jan!
Jan was an excellent host. We had brownies waiting for us and there was yogurt and coffee for breakfast. The room and bathroom were clean. She was very responsive to emails and it was easy to get in the house. Would definitely visits again.
It was a pleasure to stay at Jan's. Everything was very clean and well organized. Jan was very prompt in her responses both before and during her trip. Her cat Thriller is adorable! I would highly recommend this place to any visitors to San Francisco!
Jan was a nice and accommodating hostess. Great and quiet location in the Mission, close to excellent dining and public transportation.
The comfortable room ,nice location, warmly Jan, funny cat. It's not for a tourist but for a family. It's much better to stay in fisherman, you can easily to eat very delicious Italy food only trouble me is menu. Thanks for Jan's nice coffee. Hope next time we can stay your house again.
Jan is the best! Джен - просто потрясающая хозяйка.

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.
