The space

We live in an 1895 Victorian top flat with 12 foot ceilings on the best block in San Francisco. Our calendar is always up to date.

Location Location Location~ Our home is close to the Mission, Lower Haight, and 2.5 blocks from the Castro theater. The underground is 3 blocks away, with a street car even closer. The room is small and cosy, but a great price for one of the most expensive neighborhoods in the US!

Please fill out your profile if you are interested~and make sure to arrange a time to meet prior to your arrival, I lead a busy lifestyle, work full time, and wouldn't want to miss anyone! Check in is at 5 and we are 37 steps up from street level. Please go light on perfume and cologne - we are allergic.

Restaurants are plentiful and beautiful Dolores Park is quite close. Your room has a twin day bed 75 inches long with a desk and a solid door. The room is 9.25 feet by 8 feet. Amenities include wireless and a gorgeous full kitchen. We have one cat that enjoys company almost as much as we do and a sweet rescue pooch. Our flat gets more light than any other home I've been to in my 13 years of living in this great town.

For all you foodies out there BiRite Creamery, Tartine, Delfina's Pizza and Proper are within 4.5 blocks of our front door. Michelin rated Range is just a few farther.

As much as we love bikes, and we do, we don't have space for storage. If you rent one please return it at the end of the day or lock up on the street at your own risk. Please ask if you would like to have a friend for a short visit.

Finding this gem made my San Francisco experience all that more special. Being in the heart of the Castro District made navigating much easier and exciting to explore around the city. The room is ideal for one person and very clean. The area is full of energy and most of the more popular spots are only a few short minutes away. An UberPool ranged from $7-$12 during my stay there. I️ felt comfortable walking around the area and saw so much on my own. If you’re staying for a few nights, I️ would suggest booking sight seeing tours to see as much as you can. I took the BART from SFO to the 16h St Station. It’s a short walk to the AirBNB. Great host with quick responses to any of your questions. I️ would recommend anyone to stay here for the location and also the value!

Brenda's place is perfect for solo travelers. She provides really great recommendations for local food and things to do and was incredibly accommodating with check in for my early AM flight. This was my first time in SF and I have to say, Brenda's neighborhood was my favorite out of every place I went to in the city. Kitchen Story, a great brunch spot, is just across the street. The famous Tartine Bakery (get the Morning Bun, its incredible) and Mision Dolores Park are just a few blocks away. Plus, one of the best hikes and views of the city at Corona Heights Park is practically outside your door step. Thank you again for everything, Brenda!

Brenda's place is perfectly perfect! I always feel right at home and feel very fortunate to be able to stay there. I am not sure how I was so lucky to find her. The food options are wonderful. I never have to go far. Fine food, great groceries, world famous bread, and amazing ice cream. I will be back!
