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.
Be respectful, quiet when coming in late, no smoking in the flat, on the steps, or near the house, and the backyard is off limits due to neighbors. Please do not open the back door for any reason short of an emergency. We do not have bike storage so please return at the end of the day or lock on the street, not our stair railings, at your own risk.
This is just to elongate the listing as Air BnB asks for more verbage: No Guns please, no weapons of any kind, and no mean behavior.
Brenda was a great host, she was very kind, helpful, tidy, and on top of that was great company to just chill out and watch some tv with. She has the cutest pets with a dog that has the shortest attention span, and her roommate Serena was so sweet, and quiet, sometimes you wouldn't even know she was there. The room was a tight fit as she has mentioned to me in the beginning, but it's actually really cozy and I never went without a good nights sleep in there. It's a real cool looking room I might add, just don't try to climb the bamboo ladder.
The time at Brenda's place was simply awesome! Really good location, easy access to the whole MUNI system and also good for walks in the neighborhood. The place is clean and so nicely decorated! Even though the room is tiny, I had everything I needed. Brenda provided me some good tours, eating & shopping tips. Her pets are so adorable! Would definitely stay here again.
Brenda was a great host! She had wonderful suggestions for sightseeing around the city. I particularly liked the shopping on Valencia Street and the Ferry Building Marketplace. Brenda’s home is warm and inviting, and impeccably clean. I will definitely be booking her place the next time I visit San Francisco.
Brenda's perfectly located Castro is exactly that. It's super easy to get around to wherever you want to go and it was really great to have amazing food choices within a short walk for breakfast or dinner (after a long day of sightseeing). Brenda's lovely home is exactly as described and really cosy. The cat is the friendliest cat I have met so far and likes a little pat. Brenda is a lovely host. She is around to provide you any advice or recommendations for your stay but yet gives you plenty of privacy making your stay very comfortable and like a home away from home. This has been my first airbnb experience and I must say it's been a great one :)
I had a really positive stay at Brenda's. She is nice and accommodating. We had a small talk one afternoon and it just felt like she is a friend instead a host. Also can I just say boo is the sweetest dog ever!! The room is very small but you got everything you need for a single traveller. The room is well decorated and I feel a sense of culture over there. It's very easy to get around there and tons of cafes and restaurants (two of the really good ones I tried is right across the street: Eiji and kitchen story). Overall, a very pleasant stay!
I had a great stay in Brenda's place. She replied to me in every question I had in advance very quickly. I had no problems to get from the airport to her apartment by public transportation, the location is very convenient. There are nice places to eat around the apartment, you can also ask Brenda for recommendations. She also provided maps and tips to get around san Francisco nice and easy. The apartment itself is very very beautiful and absolutely clean. I would totally come back during my next trip to San Francisco.
Lovely stay on Sanchez St!
I spent 3 days with Brenda and Boo and had a great time! The house is only a few blocks from a great shopping area (Valencia st) and only a few min walk to the colourful Castro area. It's also easily accessed from the airport (the BART station is only a few blocks away). The house itself is beautiful and stylish and was impeccably clean. Both animals were friendly and Brenda was a courteous host who went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable. The room, though small, was clean and stylishly decorated. The only issue was that there was noise from the street, but it was an easy fix with ear plugs and Brenda even supplied a fantastic sound cancelling machine!
All in all, I enjoyed my stay at Sanchez and I don't think you could find anywhere nicer to stay for such a great price and such a great location!
( I recommend Duboce Park Cafe for breakfast nearby!)
