Great location! 1 block to Valencia, 2 blocks to Dolores Park, 8 minute walk to BART. There is a queen size bed with memory foam mattress, a
queen size futon, small refrigerator and microwave, and access to the backyard.
The space is on the ground floor with sliding glass doors that open to the back yard. The main room has a queen size bed, dresser, desk, and queen size futon, cable tv, and shelves to organize your stuff.
There is a small room outside of the bathroom that
has table, small fridge, and microwave.Since it is not a real kitchen, there are disposable plates and utensils because doing dishes in the bathroom would not be a good idea for our plumbing. You will find a coffee maker and the basics to make your coffee. There is also a W/D in that room.
The bathroom has a curtain for a door, the toilet is under the stairs, so a sloping ceiling and there is a sink and shower.
The separate access is via a ground level hall that takes you from the street to the separate entrance and backyard. The hall is were the refuse is stored for the building as well as bikes.
With your separate entrance, you will basically be on your own but we are always available to answer questions or offer advice about our neighborhood and city.
The Mission is hard to describe. It is vibrant, and a little bit of all that SF has to offer. There is great food, and the best people and this block of SF has the best micro-climate in the whole city. I feel lucky to live here.
BART is 4 blocks away(Bay Area Rapid Transit). 14 and 49 bus are 2 blocks away(Mission St, downtown, Ghiradelli Sq). J-Church train is 3 blocks(downtown, Noe Valley). 33 is half a block(Casto, Haight)
Parking is difficult.
Everything was perfect - location is amazing and the room is lovely. We arrived late and left early and so we did not meet Karen in person, but she was incredibly helpful and responsive during the reservation process and in making sure I had the information I needed to get to and into the room. I would highly recommend it!
Karen was very helpful, supplying information and maps to make our stay easier. She was not obtrusive but available and amicable. We had visited the Mission District before and enjoyed staying there to get a better flavor. We had some rain but Karen had equipped the apartment with an umbrella and other convenient needs.
Karen's place is perfect for a weekend stay or a long term visit to SF. It was easy to enter, very private, clean, tidy, and had wonderful amenities. The location is ideal for getting around the city and for spending time in the Mission district where there are some of the best restaurants and nightlife. I would highly recommend Karen's place and will book with her again!
I had a great stay at Karen's place. The room was clean, well-stocked and centrally located. Karen clearly has out a lot of thought into being a good host. I only stayed for a night but it would be quite comfortable for someone on a weeklong trip. Will definitely be back next time I need to be in SF.
My sister and I planned to spend the night at Karen's on Feb 8th together, but I missed my plane so it ended up being just my sister staying the night. Karen was beyond helpful and so nice in making sure my sister got to her place safely. With the weather (rain) hitting SF, she offered to pick us up from the BART station, and after finding out my sister was traveling alone she walked to the station to meet her! She was very prompt in replying to emails and being in contact with us before our arrivals. Now onto her place. Karens room was very private, with a separate entry off the street and then a keyless entry to the room from the basement/backyard/street entrance. It was very clean, with maps of the city, fridge, laundry, microwave, coffee maker, umbrella, and private bathroom. There is a patio to the most adorable backyard. I am planning to visit SF again with my husband and would most definitely stay with Karen. She is very hospitable, and also allowed us to keep our luggage at the room for most of the next day! Thank you Karen!
Karen's space was excellent! Very private and comfortable.
Simply great experience. The room is spacious and clean with great convenience in transportation. Karen is truly thoughtful host, so she made my one week biz trip stay just home away from home.
I had a wonderful stay at Karen's! The location was absolutely perfect - just a block off Valencia, two blocks from Delores Park, and easy walking to Bart. The space had everything we needed, including a mini fridge and washer/dryer. And Karen was a friendly and accommodating host - she even offered to mail some clothing we left behind (how nice!). I will definitely stay here again.
Excellent location and great hosts! Karen is very friendly and (email hidden)e was there to meet us when we got in and showed us the room. It was exactly as described and the private entrance and bathroom was very nice to have in San Fran.
The place is located in an awesome neighborhood with lots to eat and do and if you get bored just stroll down to Dolores Park for an amazing view of the city and its residents!
Great host. The room was exactly as it was described. Great location. We used to live in SF a few years back and really only looked into Airbnb because it provided locations in the heart of the Mission. With prices today, this room is a steal.
The private entrance, private bathroom and patio area made all the difference. Karen made us feel at home (supplied toiletries, water, etc) and provided great support through out our stay.
