Stay here and you'll find everything you need to feel at home in wonderful, exciting SanFrancisco!
You'll be staying in one of SF's quaint Victorians and be able to share the living room, kitchen, laundry, bathrooms and garden with three others.

The space

Add some adventure to your stay in SanFrancisco by hiding away in this sweet little room under the eaves of a spacious, attractive Edwardian Era Flat just one block from Alamo Square Park and it's amazing views (including The Painted Ladies)
The room may be small (10x6ft/3x2.4m) but it is convenient, cozy, clean, inviting and it has a very comfortable, good mattress on the twin bed.
There is also a desk with chair, shelves and rods to store clothing, etc., nice carpeting and a window with an inner, i.e.light well, view. There are plenty of lights, wireless, huge selection of books and a TV in the livng room.
This is one of those wonderful, old three flat buildings that were built to house the merchant families of SanFrancisco. They are so conveniently planned that it is possible to house several people with success. Three of us live in this house (four with you). Two are young women in their 20s who are at work during the weekdays and very busy with everything else the rest of the time. I am an active grand mere who works from home. We all love San Francisco and can give you plenty of information about how to get around and what to do.
There is a comfortable living room for you to share with us, as well as a fully equipped kitchen with pantry. You may store and prepare food there if you like. There is also a laundry with a washer and dryer that you may use.
Typical of this era, the bathroom (tub with shower and sink) is separate from the two w c's. One of those is in the laundry area and adjacent to the laundry tub. Thus, it is possible for 4 people to exist and get ready for whatever without too much inconvenience.
In case you bring or rent a bicycle there is room to store it in the garage. But, sorry, there is no room for a car. Personally, I think if you can avoid having a car in the city you would be wise. There are so many other transportation options and parking is often very troublesome.....although, not impossible.
Ours is a most historic/hip and convenient neighborhood. Right at the corner of McAllister and Divisadero Bus Lines 5 and 24 cross, allowing travel in all four directions. There are 4 other bus lines within short walking distance. Thus you can get wherever you want to go very easily. There is a free app called Smart Ride which tells you when all of those buses come and shows maps of where they go....great one for getting around the city.
Besides all of the transportation out, Divisadero offers most of the services you could need plus grocery stores, coffee shops, (Oasis Cafe right at the corner with the best coffee in the neighborhood!) deli's, restaurants, clubs, intriguing shops.......young people love it.......the rest of us do, too.

Guest access

Guests have access to, of course, the bathrooms, the kitchen, pantry, laundry, back steps, garden, and living room. In other words, all but the other's bedrooms.

Interaction with guests

Unless I am traveling I am often at home. I have my workroom here and also a garden. I love to meet and get to know the people who come here. But, if you need privacy, you certainly can have that.

Other things to note

Beautiful Golden Gate Park with all of its many wonders is within walking distance or more quickly accessible by Bus 5 Fulton which will also take you down to the ocean for a walk on the beach. STR-0000427

Susan is a super host. Very friendly and accommodating. The house is simply amazing, a true Victorian home. Close to Alamo Square and you can pretty much walk everywhere as I did. It is the best way to see a city, walk and embrace the sorroundings. You have shops, restaurants and cafes nearby. The room is small but cozy and everything else makes up for it. The house is full of character and you can see reminiscents of Susan travels and her foreign friends/family. Hope you enjoy as much as I did.

Susan's home is traditional old school San Francisco. The apartment is in a beautiful converted Victorian and is decorated with all kinds of worldly treasures. And the view from the back is spectacular at sunset. Great location. Safe, Alamo sq is a 2 minute walk and lots of key sites aren't far away. The room itself is small but really snug, peaceful & comfy. perfect for somewhere to crash while you spend your days exploring. Susan is very welcoming & accommodating. I had an evening flight but she let me keep my bags there past check out. It was the perfect place to finish my stay in the states before heading home.

A lovely location in a nice area, Susan was the perfect host! Made me feel really welcome and offered me suggestions and locations for places to go and explore. Couldn't have asked for anything more!

I absolutely loved my three night stay in Susan's Victorian style home. The location of her home is amazing! I was able to walk to and from any spot that I had on my "to-do" list. Also, public transportation is extremely close. She is a phenomenal host. Susan's communication was always clear and concise. I will definitely be visiting the Bay Area again!

Response from Susan:
Thank you for your review, Kei. It was fun to have you around and I think you get a gold star for seeing so much of the surrounding area in a fairly short time. I am impressed. Hopefully you can use some of the ideas you saw in your travels back in Japan! I am sorry I did not get to introduce you to our corner grocer. I told him about you and he would have liked to meet you!

I have been a happy resident of San Francisco since 1994, living right here on McAllister St where I arrived after a former life-time married to a fine man, raising a family of three sons.
I came for a visit and decided to stay......San Francisco does that to you. I spent my early years here touring the city on inline skates, yes, hills and flat....great adventures, great friends, did the Friday Night Skate for years. I still skate occasionally but my work and rental property take up more time and the fact that I now have 5 dear grandchildren living around the country means I travel rather often. Now I walk everywhere with Muni as a backup. SF is a great place to walk, you are never at a loss to find interesting places, beautiful buildings and lovely parks, beaches, trails, whatever your heart desires. Good way to keep healthy, too, with yoga and gardening added for balance. I have been renting rooms in my place since 1997 when I was able to purchase it. I have had around 50 people stay since then, many from other countries. I have furnished rooms and cater to students, interns, people new to the city, beginning jobs.....a good place to get a start and figure out where you want to stay more permanently. I try to make it a home away from home for them. For me it is like having a large, ever changing family.
