About This Listing
Beautiful one-bedroom suite on a quiet street that's centrally located and within easy walking distance to the Castro district, Mission district (including the Valencia Street scene), and Dolores Park area and near public transportation ( BART and Muni) to all of downtown, Golden Gate Park, Union Square, and other sights.
The suite includes a bedroom with a queen-size bed, large desk, and closet and a front parlor room that has a futon couch, chair and rug Shared split bathroom (toilet room separate from sink shower, and tub room). Shared kitchen and dining area has a refrigerator, oven, plates and utensils, and microwave. Most mornings, I'll make a pot of coffee, and you're welcome to help yourself.
Inside the front door are 12 steps up to the flat, which has hardwood floors. Built in the 1910s, this house has many charming original Edwardian architectural features and can sometimes be a little drafty in the famously ever-changing San Francisco weather. The suite is quiet and decorated in a clean and simple style.
Coin-operated laundry next to a cute coffee shop that has internet access is available within two blocks. Walking distance to Safeway, Whole Foods as well as smaller local fresh produce stores.
Please reach out to me if you have any questions. Unfortunately I only have one awesome guest at a time.
1. BART the least expensive, medium to fast in speed from point A to B, it's $17.40 round trip, a 6 block walk to my house
2. A shuttle service not sure on the price, maybe $ 20-ish, slow due to other people getting off at different address's, it will drop you at the front door
3. a cab, the quickest and the most expensive maybe $40 +, there are different apps for cab/taxi services on smart phones these days could be those are a better deal than the traditional cabs
Other Things to Note

B. It's two hour parking during the day unless you have a permit. You can purchase one for two (2) weeks: $37, and six and eight weeks too, also available for one (1) day for $12. One could move the car every 2-3 hours too.
C. There is a public parking garage about five blocks away
Midnight - 9am: $1 per hour
9am - noon: $1.50 per hour
noon - 3pm: $2.50 per hour
3pm - 6pm: $1.50 per hour
6pm - Midnight: $2.50 per hour
Daily max: $22.00 per day
It's the usual: no smoking indoors, if you absolutely need to smoke please use the front door to go outside, no drug use and minimal alcohol use. My bedroom is off the kitchen and I'm a light sleeper so if the kitchen is needed after 10pm or the shower after 10pm perhaps it wouldn't be a good fit.
This was my first AirBnB stay and Lucas was very friendly and welcoming. He assisted me with advice on travel to and around the city. It was a great experience. I enjoyed my stay in San Francisco.
Lucas was very friendly and accommodating. The room was very clean and spacious; allowed you to have a nice big space to yourself. Lucas even had some snacks and water waiting apon arrival. The location is great and I would definitely stay with Lucas again next time I'm in San Francisco.
Lucas est discret et accueillant. Le logement est spacieux et agréable. La rue est très tranquille et le quartier, proche du centre est très bien desservi par les transports en commun. Très commode pour aller à l'aéroport et en plein centre.
It was simply 5very goodt! Lucas appartement is clean, airy, quiet and very well located. He is nice and very considerate host :) I do recommend his home for a 100% pleasant stay in SF.
Luke was a welcoming and helpful host - the snacks & bottled water were much appreciated! I was interested in staying in this area specifically, and it was well-located for access to the city centre too.
Lucas is as friendly and accommodating a host as they come. His place is perfectly located on a small quiet street between The Mission and The Castro, with a walking distance to both.
The room - or actually rooms - is very spacious with a lot of natural light during daytime. The snacks on the side table was a nice touch, something I really appreciated after a long journey.
I'm definitively going to start by checking if Lucas has vacancy on my next visit to San Francisco, whenever that may be.
Lucas was a very kind host who made me feel very welcome from the very beginning.
The room was bright beautiful and comfortable, just as shown in the photos. It connected to a front room that was also bright and comfortable. There's a very big closet with the dresser draws inside.
The location is fabulous, with neighborhoods like the Castro and mission, you will find plenty of shops and restaurants within walking distance. It's also very convenient for transportation as well ,you can use Muni or Bart.
Whole Foods which is just a couple of blocks away has the best salad bar in the world. I really fell in love with their salad bar which had everything and all for one reasonable price.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Lucas is lovely place and I hope that I'll have a chance to visit again.
