The Space

Elegant five-story home perched on the top of one of San Francisco’s many hills. The hilly landscape and central location provides this property with fabulous views of the city. It is conveniently located between the Haight/Ashbury and Castro districts.

The common areas feature a grand stairway and hardwood blonde maple floors throughout. The living room is on the third floor and features a gas fireplace, recessed bookshelves, television/DVD and a Steinway grand piano. The three bedrooms offered on AirBnB and shared bathroom comprise the fourth floor.

This listing (Room 3) provides a deluxe queen-size bed which comfortably sleeps two. The room features a private balcony with two wooden chairs and coffee table with a breathtaking view of the city; a perfect place to enjoy a morning cup of coffee, read the paper or enjoy a view of the nighttime cityscape.

The room can be locked to secure your belongings.

The other two rooms on the fourth floor are also available and all three rooms together accommodate up to six people. (Link for Room 1: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/1677907 -- Link for Room 2: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/1678077)

The shared luxurious bathroom has granite floor, double sinks with onyx countertop, automated toilet with heated seat, spacious walk-in shower with rain shower head and onyx walls.

Guest Access

This listing is for a private room in a shared property. All listed rooms share a spacious, meticulously clean and luxurious bathroom.

Guests have access to the dining and living rooms in addition to the half bathroom located next to the kitchen. However, guests do not have access to cook in the kitchen.

However, guests may prepare food using the designated refrigerator, toaster(oven) and microwave located in the dining room.

Interaction with Guests

There are two permanent residents living in the house. We are friendly, helpful and hope to make your stay as comfortable and pleasurable as possible.

Guests who desire to be left to their own devices will be free to enjoy the property unencumbered; whereas those who enjoy stimulating conversation and recommendations about sightseeing and the many offerings San Francisco has to offer will have that option available to them as well.

The Neighborhood

Conveniently located directly across the street is the Upper Terrace Market which sells an extensive assortment of alcohol beverages such as wine and beer. In the morning they offer fresh, hot coffee and an array of fresh pastries. You can also find an assortment of pre-made sandwiches for lunch on the go.

Within walking distance are five major commercial districts:
-Castro
-Haight/Ashbury
-Noe Valley
-Cole Valley
-The Mission District

Each feature an assortment of restaurants, cafes, bars, grocery stores, pharmacies and hospitals (Approx. 1 mile to UCSF medical center and CPMC Davies campus) and movie theaters (The historic Castro Theatre is a 10 minute walk).

Also within walking distance are
-Twin Peaks
-Corona Heights Park (Stunning view of the city without the crowds of Twin Peaks)
-Buena Vista Park
-Golden Gate Park (The Conservatory of Flowers, The DeYoung Museum, The Academy of Sciences, Stow Lake, The Japanese Tea Gardens and The San Francisco Botanical Gardens)
-Tank Hill Park
-Mount Olympus Park
-Duboce Park

Additionally, bicycle rentals are usually available at the east end of Golden Gate park where Haight and Stanyan Streets intersect ($7/hr).

Getting around

Public transportation is available right at the corner of 17th St. and Roosevelt Way not more than 50' from the front door. The closest bus is the 37 Corbett line and the 33 Stanyan line stops one block away on Clayton at Ashbury Street. A short walk down 17th Street in either direction (5-10 minutes walking) will take you to San Francisco's rail system which conveniently links up with the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) system. MUNI's rail system permits easy access to San Francisco's financial district, downtown shopping district (Union Square), San Francisco's Ferry building, Fisherman's Wharf, Ocean Beach, San Francisco Zoo, Golden Gate Park and much much more. BART permits easy access to both major airports (San Francisco and Oakland) as well as access to much of the Bay Area at large, including but not limited to Berkeley and Oakland. I have placed a link to the transit trip planner which will help you map out your travel to anywhere in the Bay Area via public transportation in the directions section of the listing where we also have detailed directions to and from SFO airport via car or public transportation (Simply enter the starting and ending addresses and the trip planner will do the rest).

  • Location was perfect for getting everywhere in San Francisco that you needed to go. The host was so accommodating especially after we had a terrible run at the airport with cancelled flights and putting our arrival to the home after midnight.

    The view was extra special to make our stay in San Francisco authentic. A nice quiet area, comfortable bed and pillows and spacious bathroom. No complaints. Thank you so much to Ernest and Josh!

  • It was a pleasure to stay here. Upon arrival I was shown my room and the two bathrooms. The property is located in a mostly residential area, which keeps the surroundings nice and quite. It's only a 5 min walk to buena vista park, which offers great views over San Francisco.

    Even though the house is not exactly in downtown it's easy to get to the more touristy spots. You either call an ubee, as I preferred or you can take the f line to downtown.

    June 2014

    June 2014
