The Penthouse is a very special, creative live/work space that offers a truly rare, classic Victorian experience. Enjoy a gourmet kitchen, enough space to run around, epic views of the city and easy access to everything beautiful about San Francisco!
Welcome to the Baker Penthouse! The Penthouse is our home. As Airbnb hosts, we believe that sharing spaces creates a more personal and positive experience for travelers! The Penthouse is that experience. We keep it really relaxed here and welcome travelers who want to create their "home" experience away from home. We are situated in San Francisco's hippest and most central neighborhood known as NOPA.
We are offering the spare master bedroom with private bathroom. This bedroom is the largest in the flat and has been called "another apartment in itself" from fellow guests. The room has 2 beds: a comfortable queen bed (memory foam, medium firm mattress, sleeps 2), and a full size day bed (memory foam, medium firm mattress, sleeps 2). There is a work desk with Apple Monitor, air purifier and record/mp3 player. Closet space and iron and board provided. Fresh towels, shampoo/conditioner, and hair dryer are available in the bathroom. Super fast wireless internet access is provided throughout the house.
The Penthouse Flat:
2500 sq ft of space in a super charming Victorian dating from the 1900's. We have the entire top floor of the building accessed from 3 flights of stairs (sorry, no elevators, just stairs). Centrally located in NOPA: Home to the famous Golden Gate Park, Haight Street, some of the city's best dining, drinking and live music, Alamo Square, and the Divisadero Farmers' Market. The flat is fully renovated with a large chef's kitchen, washer/dryer, reading and meditation area, office/work areas and living room.
About the Hosts:
Nadia and Kristy are a couple and share a bedroom on the opposite end of the penthouse. Nadia is a yogi, teacher, and life coach. Kristy, a caregiver to families with children, has lived in San Francisco for over 4 years and has the local perspective on what's good to see, eat and do during your visit. Juneau is our beloved penthouse pup. She is shy at first, but is very sweet and loves belly rubs.

Interaction with Guests
Someone will be present to check you in and help assist where needed to make your stay a happy one!
When we are home, we keep mostly to the other side of the flat. We are available anytime you and your guests need us.
The room is very private and you will have building access 24/7.
This town was made for walking! And being right in the center, walking is probably one of the best ways to get around. Street parking is available (pay attention to street cleaning signs!) and the apartment is a quick 10-15 minute Muni/cab ride to most locations in the downtown/SOMA area.
Those with a car: there is free street side parking. If you're lucky you will find spots in front of the house, if not then Golden Gate Park is just 3 blocks down & always has parking, making it a nice walk back to the house. Just always be sure to check all signs because it's really easy to get a ticket here if you don't pay careful attention!
Other Things to Note
If you would like to make special arrangements to stay only one night, please send us an email so we can discuss your plans and see if your dates work for us. Thanks!

There is presently scaffolding around the building. Our apartment (including the master suite) remains untouched. Painters were here painting the exterior back in November and the scaffolding hasn't come down yet. Painters have been here maybe 5-10 times from Dec. until now, doing touch-ups and cleaning the windows. There are potential future plans for replacing some of the windows in the building, but for now the scaffolding feels more like an art installation or urban building decoration. Please let us know if you have any questions about this!
Nadia and Kristy have been great hosts. Very helpful and friendly but not intrusive! The apartment/penthouse is amazing and really unique! Our room was very spacious and there could have fit 4 people in it. Everything was very clean and we even had a fireplace! We would have been able to use everything but we were out almost the entire time. So great stay with great people!
We had a lovely stay at Kristy & Nadia's penthouse. The place itself was incredible! Spacious, comfortable and well situated for exploring San Fran. Our hosts were super helpful and friendly. A great experience overall.
What a perfect oasis for my boyfriend and I before we moved away from San Francisco! My only regret is that our schedules were so busy that we didn't get to interact more with Nadia & Kristy who were so helpful and welcoming. When we return to SF, this place will be at the top of our list for accommodations - it really exceeded my expectations!
My boyfriend and I stayed with Kristy and Nadia for Valentine's Day weekend and we absolutely loved their penthouse! The master bedroom is beautiful and has such lovely interior decor; we felt so comfortable and at home. Although we only had minimal interaction with Nadia since we were busy most of the weekend, we felt very welcomed and would definitely recommend their penthouse to anyone who wants to stay in San Francisco! Thank you so much for the hospitality guys :)
Kristy was the perfect host during my recent visit. She was easy to correspond with, welcoming and super accommodating to specific requests we had before and during our stay. As far as The Penthouse is concerned, I have nothing but great things to say - charming, comfortable and in the perfect Nopa location, equally close to the action on Divisidero and the amazing Golden Gate Park. On top of it all, the guest room's shower/bathroom has set a new bar for future Airbnbs.
Kristy & Nadia were incredibly accommodating and friendly! My stay was brief but they made me feel right at home. The unit is beautifully decorated (just like the pictures) and my room was great! The neighborhood is fantastic - great coffee and restaurants within walking distance.
Nadia was available before check-in time and allowed us to drop off our bags so that we could enjoy the city unencumbered. The neighborhood was lovely and the room spacious and beautifully decorated. The Penthouse had an amazing, calming energy about it and I felt at ease and at home.
