About This Listing

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 heater, air purifier and record/mp3 player. Closet space and iron w/ board provided. Fresh towels, shampoo, 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 elevator). 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 personal development trainer and mentor, yogi, and lifelong learner. Kristy is 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 and nervous at first, but has a gentle heart and really loves belly rubs.

Street side parking where available
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 or two nights, 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. The interior of the apartment remains completely untouched. The exterior of the building was painted and the scaffolding simply hasn't come down yet. At this point, it feels more like an art installation or urban building decoration than anything else. We have high hopes that it will come down before May. Fingers crossed. Please let us know if you have any questions about this!
Kristy & Nadia are very friendly and welcomed us into their home with open arms. The neighborhood is in a great location. Was easy to get around. They provided us with lots of information such as maps, a small SF book of things to do and their own helpful suggestions.
As my first airbnb experience, it was very good and much convenient than I expected.
Firstly, the access is very easy. Secondly, the room is very clean and everything is ready to use. Besides, the location is good. It is not far to most where by using uber. Neighborhood is very nice too.
Their place was awesome! Just as the photo on AirBnB, spacious, clean and very nice interior.
In this area there's nice restaurant and cafes. Also your Ivan see their recommendation!
They reply me very quickly which helped me a lot for booking.
Definitely I would love to stay here again!!
And after my stay they sent message to me because I forgot my iPhone charger! So nice of them!!!
Great experience. All was Perfect. Kristy and Nadia are very Nice persons. I Would Always join again :-):-)
I've used Airbnb a few times, but this was my first experience staying in the same "place" as the host. I wasn't quite sure how it would go, and perhaps I got lucky, but it was awesome. Kristy & Nadia's place was gorgeous. The location and surrounding area was incredible, the light in the building was amazing, the room was plenty big and was furnished wonderfully. I honestly couldn't have asked for a better stay while in town. Kristy & Nadia are such fantastic people and will make you feel super welcome and at home. I couldn't recommend staying here enough.
Nadia and Kristy were nice and welcoming. The room is large and bright, the shower amazing, and it was lovely being able to cook in the kitchen. The living room is beautiful but we didn't use it, as other people were sleeping there.
A good neighbourhood to walk out and about from, although it's not central.
