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.
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.
Thanks Brenda, your help enhanced my S F experience and I would happily stay again.
My host was very communicative before I arrived, answering any questions I had months, weeks and days before my arrival. Once I was there, I felt like a roommate. Brenda and the house were both welcoming. The listing was absolutely accurate and it is in one of my favorite location in the city. The time went by too fast and if I had an opportunity to return to this listing I would return here before considering other options!
Brenda and I had some communication problems through the BnB site, so it is hard to say how much this colored our interaction. I did not feel particularly welcome at first because of these mis- communications. Over time, I think we both warmed up. I was grateful that AirBnB refunded the 2 days I had cancelled 2 weeks prior, though it took some discussions and tension with the host to work this out, due to the AirBnB email issues.
I arranged for a refund for Joan's last two days with Air bnb as she had to leave early. This was a difficult guest compared to 99% of our wonderful visitors. Joan did not bother to read our complete listing or look through all the images as she gave private feedback that we should include images of the room, we have 4 images of the room on the site. Looking forward to better guests and we feel lucky that this experience is very unusual.
Brenda made me feel welcome despite my late arrival
Her flat is lovely and the area is good with easy access to public transport.
The flat is very clean.
Brenda's dog and cat also made me welcome!
Brenda made me feel right at home from the first moment I stepped through the door to her lovely flat. It's a fabulous place with great taste and style. It's conveniently located to the Muni which makes it easy to get around as well as bus lines and the 16th street BART station if you're coming in from the airport.
Her two furry companions are two funny and very friendly characters. The room is just as described, clean, cosy and comfy. I love the kitchen space! Brenda recommended some great places in the neighbourhood whether it's for food, some nightlife or sights. Check out the pancakes at Morning Due cafe! All round highly recommended!!
I had the best time in san francisco thanks to Branda who was the best host !!! She is so helpfull and friendly and gave me some great tips to discover the best of the town. Thanks again Brenda !
Brenda made me feel so welcome to her beautiful home. She offer me a glass of water first thing which was so needed during an unseasonably hot day. The room and bed was comfortable and close to public transportation. Brenda was also very generous in offering to drive me to my car rental of my final morning. i would recommend staying at her place.
