There is a shower with a large modern tub for an end-of-the-day bubble bath to warm your body from the sometimes foggy days here in our beautiful city. Bathroom also has a sink and large mirror so you can stay looking great.
ABOUT THE BUILDING:
We are on the first floor of a secure loft-style building constructed within the last 5 years. Our place is a unique unit that is a beautiful flat with elevator access.
You will get a key for entry to both the lobby and the apartment. Your room would be directly inside the front door for easy access to come and go as you please.
There is a laundry room steps away in our hallway. Laundry soap is available in the bathroom.
Since it never gets really hot here in the city, we do not have air conditioning (our unit has amazing insulation and stays at a very comfortable temperature all year long). You will have a Dyson Bladeless fan (with heater) in your room-if you need it-for circulation, heat, or if you are too warm. It rarely gets cold, but the extra thick comforter will guarantee to keep you warm. There are also two extremely soft matching throw blankets to wrap around your shoulders or throw on your lap for cozy tv time or while you plan your next adventure on your laptop. There is a fireplace in the living room that we can also turn off if you're too cold, as unlikely as that may be.
There are frosted sliding glass doors in the room that will allow light to enter from the external windows. You can always turn on the lamps and the room will be well lit.
Want a romantic or darker atmosphere? Turn on the multicolored designer light that can be controlled by remote to display an array of colors or use multi-speed switching so that the lamp switches throughout the colors of the rainbow. There is also a string of stars that light up on the ceiling. These can be turned on or off to your liking.
WHO LIVES IN HOME:
We live just the 2 of us, Barb and Eric with our loving cat Pigeon ($10 cat rental if requested (j/k)). She will not come in your room, but she will welcome you when you arrive back from your day on the town. She's a sweetheart and a love bug if you're into cats. If you're allergic, don't worry, she's not allowed into the room.
We are just a few blocks, walking distance to AT&T Ballpark, restaurants, Muni, and cabs. Street parking is easily available in the alley behind, but why drive? For an extra fee, we could let you use our spot in the garage.
This is truly a one of a kind amazing room and we look forward to meeting people from all over the world.
In the heart of SoMa, we go to the ends of the earth to keep our guests happy. If there's anything you need before your stay (within reason, we can't rent you a Lamborghini), please ask as soon as you can so that we can get your requests met!
EARLY CHECK IN MAY BE AVAILABLE:
If we have early departure from previous guests and room is clean and ready, you will be able to check in early. We can confirm times when you inquire.
You will only have access to your room and your private bathroom with is located right inside the front door. You won't want to leave this room as it's loaded with plenty of amenities:
* 60" TV
* DirecTV with everything including NFL Sunday Ticket
* AppleTV with AirPlay support
* Speakers with 3.5mm plug for smartphones, etc...
* Chromecast (for Android folks)
* Everything in between to keep you happy for an entire week, or more!
We use the room when we don't have tenants, we love it!
Interaction with Guests
We live in the home but are constantly on the go. We will always be easy to reach, just a phone call or text away at all times.
You will get as much privacy as you want. We invite you to interact with us, but that is your choice and we will only do so if you need something or want our company.
This is your time for you to enjoy how you see fit. Nothing makes us happier than making our guests realize they've made the right choice. Please look at the reviews!
It has to be amongst the most convenient places in San Francisco. If you're on business, you're a über or taxi away, or even a walk if you're up for it. We have a lot of high end restaurants in the area. If you like baseball, you won't even break a sweat walking to the stadium. You're also very close to the water, so a relaxing walk down the Embarcadero is a cool morning or evening treat; seeing the Bay Bridge at night is truly breathtaking with its new art installation (pretty lights). Look at "Getting Around" for more information. We have the main SF Police Department on 6th and Bryant (1 Block Away) so it is one of the safest parts of the city, as well as the SFFD on the next block over as well. We will also provide guidance in your travels; which places to avoid and at what times. You are safe, we would never live here otherwise.
King Street Trains/Muni/Caltrain. Some of king Street trains take a nice trip down and around the Embarcadero, with bay views and ends at the highly visited Fishermans Wharf
BART is accessible via ÜberX ($8, Find the free Smartphone App on both iOS and Android), Taxi, walking, or by bus.
Most of my time is spent walking; we do that a lot here :). A walk over to Union Square or The Mission is 1.2mi/2km, BART is .9mi/1.5km, Moscone Center is 1mi/1.6km, and South Park is only .6mi/1km away. San Francisco is a small 47 square mile/120 square km city with lots to do.
There are bicycles one block away on Townsend. They have a professional bicycle rental outside. You can pick up a well-maintened bicycle for a fun tour of the city.
Other Things to Note
The room is professionally cleaned the day before or the same day that every new guest stays. If you choose to stay multiple weeks, or monthly, there will be a weekly cleaning fee to keep the place tidy. The weekly cleaning fee is non-negotiable as we are adamant about keeping the room in the best clean conditions for you and future guests.
No smoking. We would prefer that if you are a smoker that you smoke on the corner; the people that share our building have open windows smoke to enter their homes and they will complain.
We want to keep everyone happy so just walk a few yards to the corner, take a left and you will find a quaint little dog park with beautiful landscaping and surprisingly large tress. If you keep walking, you will reach the alley and perhaps take a stroll around the block.
Sorry, No parties; you can bring a friend over for a little while and have fun, but no all nighters please.
(Additional $100 Per Day)
If you have special occasion such as a birthday, anniversary, holiday get together, or just want to have family over for the afternoon/evening, we can accommodate with 2 days notice so that you can full access /usage to the living room and kitchen. You will be delighted to use and enjoy our beautiful kitchen stocked with almost every appliance imaginable.
For sleepovers, you can have extra guests at $20 per guest per night. The first 3 extra guests will each have a comfy couch with linens and pillows.
Any additional guests after the first 3 can stay at $15 per person and will need to bring their own linens, or sleeping bag and pillow. Also they will not have a bed or couch, but are welcome to the floor.
This is not something we do often but are willing to accommodate you and your loved ones if you need a cool place to hang out or entertain. Remember to give us 2 Days notice of any event so we can plan accordingly.
All dishes, counters and floors must be cleaned and all garbage removed the same day as we do not charge extra cleaning for the special event. If we have to clean up after you, we will charge an additional $65 cleaning fee. We will try to stay out of your way and give you privacy if you need to use the rest of the house but may need to come through to access the fridge.
This is not offered for parties where loud music will be played or heavy drinking. Our building is a quiet community and we do not want to disturb the neighbors in any way.
Fully stocked with sugars, half and half, flavored creamers, plasticware, paper plates, napkins and to go cups.
This is my third time staying here, and it's as good as before -- clean, comfortable and conveniently-located. And of course the resident cat Pigeon is as friendly and adorable as always (non-cat-lovers don't worry, Pigeon will not come into your room if you don't her to). Eric & Barb have added a table since I was last here which turned out to be a very good improvement. They were also super accommodating when I arrived an hour earlier than expected.
Otherwise, just note that sound travels in this room, but it was not a bother or issue for me at all.
What a fantastic stay. Eric and Barb are great hosts and the room was perfect. Internet speed was nothing short of awesome, and I was able to get a lot of work done in the evenings. I had my own private bathroom and did not feel like my privacy, or theirs, was an issue at all.
As a bonus, Barb and I went out for a great walk and got to see the neighborhood; that was a great ending to a few very productive days in San Francisco.
Barb and Eric were fantastic hosts. I was greeted by Barb upon my arrival, we had a great conversation, and the room was very comfortable. The stocked fridge, snacks and other amenities were a nice touch and the private restroom really helped make my stay a calm one. Pigeon was also quite adorable.
Interesting place! Eric and Barb have created a pretty high-end hotel room in the middle of their apartment! Very tastefully decorated, super-clean, nice private bathroom and very comfortable bed. And the in-room snack bar and stocked mini-fridge were very welcome after a long day! (OTOH, a basket full of snacks can be detrimental to your health.)
I was busy while in SF and interacted only a bit with Eric, and not ant all with Barb. But all our communications before and during the stay were easy quick.
The only downside of this room is that sound transmits through the apartment quite a lot.
Very comfortable stay. Eric & barb were very welcoming and the bed itself was one of the most comfortable I've ever slept on! Mini bar treats were also very convenient and reasonable and as a non cat person I have to admit I was won over by this one!
This was my first AirBnB experience and I was really pleased with how it worked out. Eric and Barb were great to work with in getting it all set up and were very accommodating for little things like providing a blender, making sure I had ice, that sort of thing.
The bedroom and bathroom are exactly like in the pictures. All very comfy and felt very homey. And all those channels on the big screen TV, who could ask for anything else? :-)
I would definitely stay with Eric and Barb again.
About the Host, Eric & Barb
Eric is a Network Engineer at a startup company which is walking distance from our place here in San Francisco. (Soma) Barb is a full-time student at CCSF, finishing a degree in Broadcast Media/Film Production.
Eric's hobbies are programming, reading, writing, playing video games, hanging out at internet cafes, occasionally hitting a club with close friends and traveling.
Barb races sailboats, likes to workout at the gym, play racquetball, swim, and dance. She loves her mac, working online, and playing around with HTML5/CSS, but leans more towards A/V and social interactions. She has a small multi-level networking business for extra cash and has a team of consultants all over the US and Canada.
We got the idea of hosting our extra room after staying at an airbnb during a trip to Chicago. The room was nice, but it didn't have the extra touches that would make it incredible. (we had to go buy a comforter because the blanket was one of the kind you find in a hotel closet as the "extra" blanket)
Meeting people from all over the world is very enticing and exciting. Sharing our home has been super fun and we love every time we get to meet someone new.
We worked very hard for over six months to design, decorate, and build this beautiful room for you to enjoy. We offer extra amenities that will make your visit the ultimate stay. We LOVE making people happy.
