The room and flat are in a nostalgic style. It is centrally located on a beautiful, quiet street between the mission and noe valley.
The guest room is huge (12' X 17' or 3.6m X 5.2m ) and faces the back yard with a walk-in bay window. It is located at one end of the apartment where the hosts room is located near the other. This flat is large with one shared bath. It is very quiet except for the occasional fire engine from the station 3 blocks away. It is a short walk to bars, restaurants and coffee shops in both the mission and noe valley. The subway is about a 10 minute walk. The house borders the mission so there is a lot of cool stuff nearby but there is none of the mission noise, litter or gang members. Fair Oaks is one of the nicest streets in the city to live on because of the beautiful homes and because it is not a main thoroughfare.
The bedroom has a 42” HD TV and a Sony Blu-ray player that receives Netflix and other services wirelessly. Wifi is everywhere in the house. There is a full sized futon in addition to the queen sized memory foam bed in case of guests. The room has it’s own key. The window has a screen because i know i can't stand mosquitoes.
There is a backyard and large front stoop.
If you need to wash, there is a king-sized washer and dryer.
You can cook on the gas stove and help yourself to the spices and whatever else you might need.
Help yourself to the booze. Just don’t abuse it.
Interaction with Guests
I show guests where everything is and invite them to make themselves at home.
I usually work during the day and may be home during the evening at the other end of the flat which is fairly large.
John was an excellent host, and the room was as nice as advertised. There are some great affordable restaurants nearby, and you can walk to the BART station in no time at all. A+, would recommend!
John is a great host, very discreet and helpful. His house is very clean and well maintained and the room with all comfort and privacy. Located in a safe and quiet neighborhood. Easy to discover the vibrant Mission around
A nice place to stay. Highly recommended
John was a very gracious host and made me feel welcome right away. He helped me get situated and offered me info about the neighborhood, dining, etc… He's personable and was very laid back and easy going. The room was as nice as the pictures: Super clean, comfortable bedroom, and easy wifi access. I'd certainly say this is a really just a comfortable space with a great feel to it. Not only was John very cool, but he was also helpful and thoughtful. My overall impression is one of gratitude. This was a super nice choice of neighborhood, value, and I'm just grateful to have had another great air bnb experience.

I have lived in san francisco for 18 years. I really enjoy meeting people from other parts of the world. It's fun to see if my humor translates. My work takes me to different parts of the bay area which I like.
When I travel I don't over plan. I will (email hidden) book as the plane is about to land to find a place to stay. Other than that I just ask people where they've been and how they liked it. Situations change and it's best to stay flexible with your plans.
I expect you to make yourself at home when you stay here. Help yourself to whatever you want. Maybe you can return the favor to me someday.
