The Space

We live in an 1895 Victorian top flat with 12 foot ceilings on the best block in San Francisco

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.

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 4.

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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

  • This was my second time staying with Brenda and I couldn't rate this place anymore highly than before.

    The location is incredibly central to The Castro area, with so many great things a short distance away (Ike's Sandwiches, Tartine Bakery, Bi-rite Creamery, Castro Theatre, Frances, Mission Dolores Park just to name a few).

    Brenda and her flatmate are more than welcoming, and for anyone travelling solo to the neighbourhood, this Airbnb property would be more than accommodating.

    I will definitely be coming back for a third time!

  • Everything is perfect.
    I spent a month in the Brenda’s home, and it was the best choice.
    The house is beautiful, very clean, comfortable, full of art decorated. The room is great with a super comfy bed, I sleep very well, no noise in the street.

    The location is a great place to stay with plenty of great bars, parks, clubs, restaurants and good food, good night life for dance, concert, theater. It is close to many public transportation (the BART line is excellent for transport to and from the airport and city centre) and the house is also located in a safe and convenient neighborhood.
    Brenda e Serena are wonderful: welcoming, helpful, easygoing incredibly kind, helpful and warm.
    They made me feel right at home, and for me it was like being in a family.
    I strongly recommend staying with Brenda. I Hope to meet Brenda e Serena again next time in SF.
    if you want to book in SF, this is the place.
    Thank so much and I miss (website hidden). Ah yes…you can not fall in love with Boo and Moo, dog and cat so sweet

  • Brenda was a fantastic hostess and Brenda's apartment was absolutely ideal for a first-time visitor to San Francisco such as myself. The apartment is beautiful (full of art) and the guest bedroom is comfortable and very quiet (especially considering the central location). I recommend her without hesitation and would definitely stay there again.

  • Very thoughtful and accomodating. House rules were sensible and simple; it shows Brenda's experienced in hospitality, plus her little dog is a kick. Overall I enjoyed my stay with no major complaints. Thanks Brenda-

  • Staying with Brenda was a fantastic first Airbnb experience. Her place was lovely and comfortable, and she was great to talk with and very laid back. Boo and Moomoo were excellent hosts as well! The location was as convenient as I had hoped. I'd definitely stay here when back in SF!

  • Brenda is great and I really enjoyed staying at her apartment. She is very nice, welcoming and helpful. The room was gorgeous, comfortable and clean and I love how the room and apartment have been decorated. Brenda has also an adorable cute dog and a very quiet cat. The location is also very cool, close to restaurants and in a nice area. I would definitely chose to stay with her again should I be back in San Francisco.

  • Staying with Brenda was a wonderful airbnb experience - she was a perfect host, very friendly and welcoming and gave me some great restaurant recommendations as well as assisting with forward travel bookings. The room was very comfortable and I loved the Castro area, which was also very convenient for public transport. I would highly recommend this place and would certainly want to stay here again if I return to San Francisco. Thanks so much Brenda!

  • This is my first AirBnB experience and it was a dream. Brenda is lovely and very welcoming. I also had the sweetest pleasure of meeting Boo the dog and Moo the cat. Lovely fur babies I have to say. Brenda is very accommodating and provided a lovely place during my stay. I felt really comfortable staying with her since I traveled to "The City" on my own. Great talks! I will come back and stay here next time. Perfectly located Castro- thank you for giving me a home away from home. Highly recommend!

  • hi I had a pleasant stay at Brenda's. I had to change my flight at the last minute, and arrive in SF early morning. Brenda was very kind to come to home and give me the key. So that i could drop my luggage and even take a shower after 12 hours' flight. The house is beautiful and absolutely perfectly located. I have tried some restaurants and tea house Brenda recommended. Very delicious. I like the neighborhood a lot!
