The large front room of a 1898 Victorian flat with all the classic details. The bed is a very comfortable memory foam convertible couch. The bathrooms are shared with us. We have 2 cats and a seasonal garden. Located 2 blocks from Alamo Square Park.
This is a classic San Francisco Victorian full flat. The bedroom has a period mantle piece, original crown molding and medallions and a huge bay window looking out onto Golden Gate Avenue. The bathroom is 20 steps down the hall from your bedroom door. Continental breakfast is served in the formal dining room with period built-ins and non-working fireplace.
Guests will have access to the garden as well as the bathrooms (one full, one 1/2 bath) and laundry room.
Interaction with Guests
We are personable, easy going guys, happy to answer questions and give advice when needed. At the same time we are respectful of our guests privacy and realize they didn't come to SF to see us.
Diversity. That is the reason I have lived with in 2 blocks of Alamo Square Park for 21 of the 24 years I've lived in San Francisco. This neighborhood is a great mix of people of all colors and ages and the offerings reflect that. The Divisadero corridor (Divisadero from Haight to Golden Gate) is a vibrant street full of all kinds of shops, bars, cafes, restaurants and boutiques. Alamo Square Park itself is a world renowned land mark, beautiful all year round and home of the famous "Painted Ladies" Victorian homes. Yet this area does not have the feel of a "tourist trap" area.
The two closest bus lines (24 Divisadero and 5 Fulton, 2 blocks from our door) will get you to (or with in 1 or 2 blocks of) Union Square, Golden Gate Park, the Castro, Pacific Heights, The Civic Center, The Marina, Upper Filmore St., The De Young and Academy of Sciences museums, BART, the Asian Museum, Market Street, the Cable Car turn around (Powell St.), all the big name stores, etc.

Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour chez Doug et Richard ! Leur maison est très bien placée, à deux pas d'Alamo Square Park et de Hayes Valley. Leur accueil a été parfait, tout comme les petits-déjeuners qui étaient proposés chaque matin. Notre seul regret a été de devoir partir si tôt et nous avons déjà hâte de pouvoir revenir. Je recommande vivement cette adresse !
This was our second time staying at Doug and Richards place which really speaks for itself. We love the apartment location and both hosts are just so welcoming it's awesome. We will definitely continue to use this apartment as our base when we are able to get back to San Francisco! The breakfast they provide is also just so lovely and really makes you feel at home. :)
Absolutely lovely. Great location, hospitality, and cats. I tried to take blue the cat with me when I left but I didn't have enough room in my bags. Thanks again doug.
Superbe accueil, très chaleureux. Hôte très arrangeant sur les horaires d arrivée, de départ, de petit déjeuner.... Accès à une grande partie de la maison dont le patio qui est extrêmement agréable après avoir parcouru les collines de SF! La chambre est située à l entrée de la maison, respect de l intimité de chacun au rendez-vous!
Doug and Richard were great hosts- we felt 100% comfortable and welcome in their home! We had the front room to ourselves which was more than enough room for two. We came and went as we pleased- and they had a wonderful back patio that we used as well! Their place is in a great location- we walked everywhere, public transportation is also a few blocks away which is also a plus. It is also centrally located- a cheap uber to downtown! They are a 5-10 minute walk from great restaurants and bars- we didn't need to venture too far down for great drinks! They gave great recommendations and were extremely helpful for our first trip to SF! Doug and Richard were extremely kind and made us feel like we were staying with friends. We would definitely stay here again and recommend! We are looking forward to our next trip back again!
Doug and Richard made me feel very welcome. The bed was comfortable and breakfast very much appreciated. If you love cats you will love Zora and Blu, especially Blu who will be your companion.

I am a fifty-one year old theatrical production manager. I have lived in San Francisco for the last 24 years, most of that time within 2 blocks of Alamo Square Park. I have worked at one of the city's most famous "attractions/institutions" for 19 years (Steve Silver's Beach Blanket Babylon) where I am Associate Production Manager and Wardrobe Master. My partner, Richard, has lived here since 1998 (and a for a little while in the 80's). He is a hair stylist and colorist. We have been together since 1999. We are both serious foodies and wine enthusiasts and love to explore the culinary offerings of Northern CA. We love to interact with people, but respect boundries. We love music, art, theater, movies and our cats.
