Great location! 1 block to Valencia Street, 2 blocks to Dolores Park, 8 minute walk to Mission/16th. Street BART.
Yes, you have your own space, your own bathroom and your own entrance.
The space is on the ground floor with a sliding glass door that opens to the back yard. The main room has a queen size bed, dresser, desk, and futon sofa, cable TV, and shelves to organize your things.
There is a small room outside of the bathroom that has a small refridgerator, 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 only a curtain for a door, the toilet is under the stairs, so a sloping ceiling (must take care not to bump your head) 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.
Interaction with Guests
With your separate entrance, you will basically be on your own. I will try to answer any questions you have.
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).taking you to other cities nearby. #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. Paid parking is $24 per day and 3 blocks away. The streets have 2 hour limited parking during the day, and posted days for Street Cleaning when you can't park on that street for a 2 hour time range. Parking is free if you can find a spot, and leave your car between 7pm and 10am the next day. Free street parking Saturday and Sunday. I have some day parking passes for street parking that cost $8/day.
Other Things to Note
The back yard is a shared space, but because you have the most convenient access, odds are you will be the only one using it.
No Smoking inside. No pets, sorry.
What an awesome listing! Great communication beforehand, and Karen was available to greet and show me around when I arrived at 10pm to check in. The room is perfect. It is large, very clean, and super comfortable. I had a short stay (in at 10pm out at 8am) but I could have comfortably stayed here for weeks. The location is perfect - it's in a great neighborhood and is very close to Dolores Park. I didn't get a chance to check out the back yard but it looked nice :) I highly recommend staying here.
Perfect location and a cozy little place with everything you need. Mission District seems to be the place to be in San Francisco and Dolores park is a must, especially on nice sunny days. Really good instructions from host.
Karen's place is top notch. Most comfortable bed I have EVER slept in. Clean, cute, amenities galore and a dynamite patio area. My only regret is I didn't stay longer. Great area. She was a very sweet person. I highly recommend staying here! I'll be back!!
Unfortunately, life interfered and we couldn't actually make it to Karen's place the first night, but once we got there, Karen was most kind and welcoming. Helped us with parking and was always available to answer questions. The room was comfortable, nothing lacking, neighborhood had its character. I 'd go back!
Karen made me feel welcome straight away. She waited for a while at the door to give me the keys and as she saw I was having difficulties with parking she let me know there were 2 spots open in her street while I was driving around. The place was clean and all instructions for Wifi, toilet usage etc were very clear.
Great place, thoutful host! Karen let us check in early as soon as the room was ready and store the bikes we rented inside the entry area. Great location as well.

I finished my MBA in June 14 years ago, and quit my job the next month and have been a stay-at-home mom since. My husband is from Bangladesh, and I am lucky to have been able to travel there and India and stay with family and really get to see life as they live it everyday. I prefer to get off the tourist trail when I travel. Favorite destination is Thailand.
