About this listing

I've lived in this flat for almost 20 years! I've always loved the architecture and details of this unique and charming home. This neighborhood is surrounded by culturally rich Mission streets and an always lively Market Street.

The Space

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.

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.

Getting Around

1. BART the least expensive, medium to fast in speed from point A to B, it's $17.40 round trip, a 4.5 block walk to my house
2. A shuttle service not sure on the price, maybe $ 20-25?, can be 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 ( Lyft, Uber) for cab/taxi services these could be a little better deal than traditional cabs.

Other Things to Note

I wanted to give a brief tutorial on the "Joys of Parking in my Neighborhood" I've mostly covered it but if you have more questions feel free to ask!

A. There's not a lot of it, esp. at night

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.

House Rules
No smoking
No parties or events
Not child-friendly (0-12 years)
Check-in is after 12PM (noon)

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.

Hello, I'm a long time resident of San Francisco, 23 years and counting and have been in the same flat for 16 years. I love living here, the culture, food and active lifestyle keep me on my toes. I'm 53 years old, clean and sober and lead a fairly quiet life. I'm a personal trainer and also help other Airbnb host's with their homes. All my guest's have inspired me to start traveling to see the world!

five things I love : bicycle, coffee, sun, the gym, toothbrush

I try to live my life as an ethical, kind and light hearted person.
