Description

The Space

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 period (old, but clean) full tile 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.

Guest Access

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.

The Neighborhood

Diversity. That is the reason I have lived with in 2 blocks of Alamo Square Park for 24 of the 27 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.
Our neighborhood is now a permit parking zone for street parking. This means that between the hours of 10am and 4pm there is 2 hour limit on street parking for cars without a permit. Parking is free and ample from 4pm to 10am (overnight).

Getting Around

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.

Other Things to Note

PARKING: Many of our guests have cars and we are often asked about parking. So, here's the deal: Our neighborhood has residential permitted street parking. This basically means you need a sticker to park on the street for more than 2-4 hours at a time (changes from block to block) , between 8AM and 6PM. From 6PM to 8AM parking is free and ample The closest public parking lot to us is about 8 and 1/2 blocks away (a 15 to 20 minute walk). Over night parking is $10.00- $12.00 (depending on what time you park).

San Francisco, California, United States · Member since July 2013

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.
