This is a pretty safe and nice area of the city. Strolling around the colorful neighborhood is a pleasure as well. The house is located in the middle of glen park, mission and bernal height. Walking distance to many unique shops and restaurants.
The village of Glen Park is a thriving neighborhood, with great neighborhood restaurants like NYTimes reviewed Gialina pizzeria, Manzoni (Italian), Le P'tit Laurent (French Bistro w/3 course neighborhood menu), La Corneta taqueria, Chenery Park fine dining, Higher Grounds creperie, and Tyger's neighborhood coffee shop. The Cheese Boutique, Destination Bakery, and Canyon Market have all your other food needs covered!
Bird'n'Beckett bookstore carries new and used titles and has live jazz/folk on weekends. Coffee spots abound, with not a chain in sight. Stay in Glen Park and support hyperlocal merchants as prep for your day exploring this great city.
SF is a relatively small city, you can get to most tourist attraction sites via public transportation within an hour. You can take muni line 14L or 14 (3 mins walking distance to the Richland bus stop) along Mission street to downtown or the Embarcadero; line 49 to the civic center or the marina district; line 43 to Golden Gate Park; line 23 to the SF Zoo, or Ocean Beach, or hop on the Bart at the Glen Park Bart station which is 10 minute walking distance, and connects you to the San Francisco international airport (about 25 minutes ride) and the east bay like Berkeley, Oakland, etc.
We can provide a car to drop off by the SFO at a reasonable price $30 ( for most of the time depending our schedule)
Other Things to Note
** Please before inquiring/booking, we kindly ask that you fill out your profile/verifications with a picture **
The room is available if you can book it through airbnb site. This is a family home, so there will be some noise. My husband works from home half the time. I work a late hour shift so I stayed up pretty late at night but We will keep the noise down if you sleep early. You might see my mom during the weekends.
Checking in late is not a problem for us at all. This is a no pet or smoking place. Smoking has to be taken outside of the house. Street parking is free but it could be difficult to find a parking spot after 6pm.
We have a German Shepherd Dog which is very friendly after being introduced. He is mostly outdoors or in the garage, though. We also have
a newborn baby in the house, only a few months old, so you may hear some crying sometimes. We have a German shepherd dog, who stays mostly the garage or outside. He barks once a while but mostly stay quiet.
Please keep the premise clean. no shoe policy: please leave street shoes at the foyer; i provide slippers. No pets. No smoking in the house.
Great location to visit San Fran and the surroundings. Very close to the Glen Park BART (10 minutes to Embarcadero). Nice places to eat in the area as well. Also easy access from SFO (direct BART to Glen Park).
Direct buses to Alamo Square and so on.
Good room and en-suite. Did not see Leslie and Gio much during our 5 day stay but they are lovely and helpful people.
Leslie was very accomodating and welcoming upon our arrival at the house. The room was splendid with lots of space and fully stocked with small amenities that made it feel like home. Overall, we were out of the house most of the day and didn't interact with the family too much, but everyone I met was friendly and hospitable.
Leslie foi super gentil e cooperativa. O quarto eh bastante cinfortavel e o banheiro eh otimo.
Superbe séjour à SF chez Leslie et Gio. Hôtes très aimables et serviables. Notre vol arrivait tard et cela n'a pas posé problème,ils nous avaient même proposer leur stationnement si nous n'en trouvions pas. Localisation très agréable et tranquille. Je suggère fortement cet endroit!
Very good stay! We feel like home in the amazing san francisco! Higly recomended! Hoping come back soon! Thank you!
We had a nice stay at Gio and Leslie's place. The location was very convenient since there are different main streets and public transportation options very close to the house. The room was as pictured and described. The communication prior to our trip was good. The only thing we didn't like is that the shower and the lavatory had not been cleaned after the last person who used them. We didn't use the kitchen although it was offered to us, it needed some cleaning as well.
Please keep in mind that this is a room in a house and they stay up late at night so there may be some noise if you go to sleep early; however, it wasn't disturbing and we were able to sleep well.
Wir haben uns bei Leslie und Gio rundum wohl gefühlt. Der Kontakt und die Kommunikation haben besten funktioniert. Als wir ankamen, musste Leslie bis nachts arbeiten und hatte uns vorher informiert, dass ihre Mutter da sein würde und dass diese jedoch kaum Englisch spräche. Kein Problem, wir kamen an, verständigten uns ohne Probleme und konnten unser Zimmer beziehen. Das Zimmer ist sauber und gemütlich eingerichtet und wir haben in dem Bett gut geschlafen. Angenehm hervorzuheben ist das angeschlossene Badezimmer. Das Haus ist mit dem Bus und der Bart einigermaßen schnell zu erreichen. Es lohnt sich jedoch, die paar Schritte mehr zur Bart zu gehen, da es schneller geht und zudem auch noch etwas günstiger ist.
hi, we enjoy travailing and meeting new people. We both stay up pretty late at night; i work mostly in the evenings and my husband works from home during the day half the week. When we have the time, we like to go out and rediscover the exciting city life of San Francisco. We are very social and we do AirBnB also to meet people, make new friends, and if time allows, we are happy to show you around the City--or at least give you tips, advise, and answer any questions. My husband loves to host on (website hidden) so he has a lot of experience hosting travelers, and showing them areas of the City where locals like to go.
