About this listing
A lovely comfortable spacious 2BR home in a quiet neighborhood. Artistic and pretty, this home has classic detailing, good natural light, a fireplace and a back yard with grass and flowers. It is close to BART and Muni, freeways,and has a driveway.
This is a charming bohemian artsy home with lots of nice touches. There is a queen bed in one bedroom, and a double bed in the second, comfortably sleeping 4. There are hardwood parquet floors, arched ceilings with crown moldings, french doors, original tile in the working fireplace, and a brightly colored bathroom. The outdoor garden is an oasis with grass and flowering trees, hummingbirds, bluejays, and a firepit for those foggy San Francisco nights. There is a weber gas grill and an outdoor seating area for bbqs and al fresco meals.
Guests will have access to the whole house to themselves. You must walk through garage (which I'm not gonna lie, has a lot of my stuff in it) to get to the outside space.
Interaction with Guests
I am available to meet with you and give you the keys and any tips you may need about San Francisco, but then prefer to have you enjoy the space and the city on your own. I am usually a 15 minute car ride away, and reachable by phone for any guest needs or problems.
The Mission Terrace Neighborhood is awesome! It's a little further out, but super accessible to the MUNI J-Church line to take you into Noe Valley, the hip Mission District or downtown. The quaint village of Glen Park andThe Glen Park BART is a 10 minute walk. The Freeways are super close. And even though you are close to the urban action, there is a feel of being closer to nature with all kinds of flowers and birds everywhere. The neighborhood has a safe family vibe and most folks have pride in their homes and keep up the pretty landscaping. Newly redone Balboa Park for dog walking, a fun playground for the little ones, skate park, tennis courts, and an indoor pool is close by.

Other Things to Note
There are two adorable, mellow love cats that live here (mostly downstairs) so must be a pet lover and non-allerigic :-) I care for them by the separate side entrance, so will not disturb the guests. This house is from the 1920's...and is more on the funky, charming side than the sleek modern totally updated kind of place. This home gets tons of natural light during the day, so it's well lit naturally. But, I don't rely on bright overhead lighting, and have mostly lamps and mood lighting in my home for nighttime. So, if you require a very bright well-lit atmosphere...this might not work for you.
No smoking inside the house. No loud parties. Respect my space and my neighborhood. Be cool. :-)
