We are walking distance to all the fabulous treasures our neighborhood has to offer and to public transit.
Please read all of the information in this listing before booking. Thank you.
The space is an in-law/studio unit below our home (where we live). It is completely private. The only entrance is through our garage. It consists of one room with comfy queen size bed, a desk/workspace that doubles as a breakfast table & chairs, a comfy chair, and two closets. An efficiency kitchenette in the room consists of mini-fridge, microwave, electric kettle, coffeemaker, dishes, silverware, corkscrew (**please note this is not a full kitchen but is perfect for reheating leftovers from the many restaurants in our neighborhood**). The private bathroom features Italian marble shower (no tub) and lots of cabinets. Hardwood floors throughout. WiFi, flatscreen TV with DirecTV. French doors provide natural light and lead to a shared backyard & deck with fruit trees (plums are ripe in the summer and can be plentiful- help yourself!). Laundry facilities (washer, dryer, iron) are in the garage and available for your use.
The room is a relaxing retreat from the bustling city, and the deck is a beautiful place to sit and relax in one of the sunniest neighborhoods in San Francisco. The space is ideal for one or two people. Children are welcome and there is a portable crib in the hallway closet. We renovated this unit specifically for Airbnb guests, and we hope you enjoy it!
This is an in-law/studio unit below our home, with its own entry through our garage. You will be provided with a keypad code so you can come and go without worrying about keys or about disturbing us.
IMPORTANT: Please check the “House Manual” (accessible online & in the Airbnb app upon reservation confirmation) for the keypad code ***THE DAY OF ARRIVAL.*** The code changes frequently - please be sure you get the correct code the day you arrive!
You can check in any time after 3 pm, even if it's late. If you want to come earlier, you can check with us and if the room is ready, we'll let you in early. You’re also welcome to leave your bags in the garage until check-in time.
Interaction with guests
We have busy and unpredictable schedules so we don’t always meet all of our guests. However, if we bump into each other we'd love to chat. We're also available via text message if you have any questions.
Other things to note
IMPORTANT REGARDING NOISE: We are a family of four and our kitchen is directly above the guest unit. We have young children who can be noisy. We do not wear shoes in our home and make every effort to be considerate but you can still hear our footsteps, voices, and an occasional child tantrum when we're in the kitchen (old building, thin walls). Most of our guests are not bothered by this, but it can be an issue especially around mealtimes (mornings and early evenings - we are rarely in the kitchen late at night). We also share walls with our neighbors, so you may hear sounds coming from the homes on either side of the room as well. You may also hear our garage door open and close.
PARKING is available on the street but there is no assigned spot. Street parking is limited to 2 hours at a time without a permit Monday through Friday. We have a parking permit that you can use if your stay includes weekdays (see the "House Manual" for details). With the permit you can leave your car parked all day as long as it's not parked in a street-sweeping zone for that particular day. *This could involve moving the car every day.* On weekends parking is usually free and unlimited. Please read and respect all posted parking rules (*note street-sweeping days & times*). We are not responsible if you get a ticket.
No smoking on the property, inside or outside
No pets on the property, inside or outside
Please keep in mind this is our home, not a hotel. Treat it as if it were your own. Some common courtesy rules: Please turn off the lights, heater, and coffee maker when not in use. Please use towels for drying your body only- not for makeup removal or any other purpose. Please wipe up spills promptly to avoid permanent damage to linens and furnishings. If using the laundry facilities, please clean the dryer lint trap after use and make sure the iron is off and cool before putting it back. -Thank you!
Noah and I are a married couple with two wonderful, funny kids living in the sunniest neighborhood in San Francisco. I'm a psychotherapist with a private practice downtown, and Noah is a summer camp director and lifelong educator. We both love spending time doing cooking projects at home, hanging out with family and friends, enjoying date nights at our favorite restaurants, and taking advantage of all the outdoor activities the bay area has to offer. You'll often find us sailing on the bay, hiking, riding bikes, strolling the farmers market, picnicking in the park, or shuttling the kids to and from karate and swim lessons.
Our hosting style is pretty laid back. We don't mind interaction with our guests but we sometimes have busy schedules and also know that some guests prefer privacy. Our traveling style is also very laid back. We enjoy exploring what each destination has to offer by being out and about, but we value our family time and down time as well.
