About This Listing
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.

Excellente situation dans le quartier résidentiel de San Francisco. Maison typique dans son jus avec jolie jardin pour profiter du soleil.
Doug et Richard ont été absolument adorables ! Accueillants, chaleureux, ils nous on fait nous sentir au mieux chez eux et nous ont laissé tout l'espace nécessaire dans leur maison.
A aucun moment nous ne nous sommes sentis de trop ! Doug parle français et sait faire des efforts avec les non-anglophones.
Les chats sont adorables. La chambre est propre. Le lit agréable et spacieux. Le petit déjeuner très bon et copieux d'autant que Doug est fin cuisinier, c'est donc un plaisir de petit déjeuner chez eux mais aussi d'y séjourner.
Ce sont au final de merveilleux moments avec des gens absolument charmants et facile d'accès. Ce sera notre destination si nous retournons à San Francisco !
Everything that was previously written about Doug and Richard's place was true. They were incredibly accommodating, the breakfast was delicious, my husband fell in love with the cats, and they helped us with directions and advice for this beautiful city San Francisco. The position is perfect for easy access to the city and sights.....thank you again Doug and Richard
We had such a fantastic time in San Francisco and this area in particular is so beautiful and a lovely place to stay. There are many lovely restaurants, cafés ands shops just around the corner and is a really central location making it very easy to get to most areas.
Doug and Richard were the perfect hosts, giving us everything we needed and providing an incredibly welcoming and homely atmosphere. Upon arrival we were immediately greeted and shown all that we needed and were able to come and go as we pleased. We felt incredibly lucky that we had found such a lovely place to stay which allowed us to really enjoy our stay in San Fran and are hoping to return soon!
Doug and Richard were friendly and eager to welcome us into their home. Doug prepared breakfast for us every morning- the breakfast was WONDERFUL. Muffins, cereals, toast, milk, orange juice, coffee, etc. We felt so spoiled by this kind gesture.
The house is in a prime location with tons of tasty restaurants in the surrounding area. The neighborhood felt extremely safe and we had no worries leaving our belongings in the house while we adventured.
We absolutely loved their two precious cats, Zora and Blu, as well.
Overall, I couldn't have asked for a better Airbnb experience!

About the Host, Doug
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.
