Sound: City living includes some city-sounds (the random ambulance, the dog barking in the park, and the "J" trolley passing by. For those who are sensitive to sound we provide a white-noise machine.

The listing is as beautiful as the pictures, if not more so. It was clean, homey, and luxuriously comfortable. The location is ideal: close to many coffee shops, great foods, and a gorgeous night view. Our host is extremely friendly and considerate. We really couldn't ask for anything better.
Juan was extremely open, welcoming, kind, and sociable. The house and room were both very nice and the location was superb. Juan gave us some suggestions for restaurants and things to do in the area that we took advantage of and really enjoyed. We didn't end up staying the night for personal reasons, but we ended up having a great time in San Francisco. We loved the chance to interact with someone who has lived in the area for so long and who knows the city well.
Super welcoming. Great house with very nice room, balcony, rooftop view. Juan is such a great host. I felt completely at home. Neighbourhood is the best in SF. Super cool. Bets food,shops,nightlife.
We could not have been happier with our choice to stay at Ste & Juan's place! They are so accommodating, so fun to chat with, and their home is the perfect base to explore San Francisco. The view from the private patio about the bedroom was maybe the best view of the city we saw all weekend - better than even Twin Peaks! I would highly recommend this home for a visit to San Francisco.
Ste & Juan are absolutely awesome. They treat you like family from the very first moment while at the same time they leave you all the freedom and privacy that you want.
The flat is in a gorgeous place with one of the most beautiful views of downtown from above Dolores park, breathtaking.
The place was right next to the park. Very convenient. The room was nice and clean. The best part was the view from the roof. They have a gorgeous view of the park and city. I had a wonderful time. Ste and Juan were very nice.
The description is spot on. Their home is very welcoming and in a fantastic location in the Mission. You will thoroughly enjoy your stay here. I definitely will return.
