About this listing
A wonderful room in the best part of SF's Lower Haight district. Waller Street is quiet but just steps away from all the bustle and cultural activity of this vibrant neighborhood. We are the hub of SF. We welcome you to our oasis.
we are in the Garden District of the Lower Haight. We have been voted the number neighborhood by the new techie community. We no longer have Instant Reservation and we only accept reservations for two or more continuous nights.
from Downtown, you can take any MUNI that comes along, J, K, L, M, N and even the old street cars on the surface (F)
Interaction with guests
Our apartment is two floors. The guest room, bathroom, family room, kitchen and outside deck for morning coffee or an afternoon hang out are all on the fist floor. John and I live on the top floor with our own bedroom, bathroom, family room and deck. The only room we share is the kitchen. Read our reviews and see why we book guests early at a very reasonable price.
Geographically, we are in the Eureka Valley also known as the sun belt of San Francisco. If the fog burns off, it burns off first in our neighborhood. All public transportation comes to our neighborhood. You can walk to the Mission, Hayes Valley, the Castro and the Civic Center.
Our neighborhood is also known as the hub of San Francisco. Very easy to get around. In fact, we are one Muni ride from AT and T baseball park.
Other things to note
Haight Street in the Lower Haight is filling up with bars and boutiques. Three Twins Ice Cream is just around the corner (local ORGANIC ice cream). The Lower Haight is not Yuppie. We are just a mixed neighborhood of local people. We live around the corner on a quiet block just planted by The Friends of the Urban Forest! On our corner is the popular local Cafe du Soliel, perfect for a morning coffee or an afternoon pick me up.
We prefer our guests to act as grown ups and not party children. We provide satellite TV, WiFi and a wireless printer in the guest bedroom. Our queen size bed sleeps two easily but if necessary, we have a small guest room that sleeps an additional guest. We expect our guests are staying with us to be in a beautiful Edwardian home (pre 1906 earthquake) full of Art, with an emphasis on figurative photographs. We believe that surrounding yourself with beautiful objects enhances the quality of your life!

I live with my husband John, and we love our art filled home in the Lower Haight — central to everything. I retired from working downtown in Union Square; it takes very little effort to get there, three stops on MUNI. Our public-transit system is everywhere and very close to the house (be it a MUNI, the N Judah — underground — or the street car on Market Street). Our closest surrounding neighborhoods are Hayes Valley, Duboce Triangle, The Castro (just underwent extensive renovations), the Upper Haight and Valencia Street in the Mission District. On Waller Street we're literally steps away from some of the best food, bars and shopping (not tourist spots). The Lower Haight was voted the number one neighborhood in San Francisco by the tech community. Most important, do not rent a large car or let the car agency upgrade you to a larger car. Parking is too difficult. The rental agency tries to unload larger cars by offering visitors an upgrade. Don't accept it. We allow our guests to park in the street in front of our garage providing there is enough room.
Our home (pre earthquake Edwardian) has been with me for more than forty years, so you can ask either of us anything and that you want to know about the Bay Area and we are bound to point you in the right direction. What else... Ah, just feel free to be in touch. We look forward to having you around!
We just concluded our fourth year as hosts on Airbnb. We are continually told that our price is too low. We are OK with our fee. We really want our guests to have a great time when staying with us. To paraphrase the clothing designer Tom Ford, " Surrounding yourself with beautiful objects, enhances the quality of your life". It is our unofficial motto.
