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.

Our building has 3 units, and you will be sharing a wall. The people on the other side of the shared wall are loud. I wish I could say we have a quiet sanctuary. If you read through my reviews, you will see that the noise bothers some, but not all. I provide a background noise machine and earplugs.

The space

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 Nespresso coffee maker, coffee pods, a toaster, cutting board and knife.

The bathroom has a sliding door, The toilet is under the stairs, so a sloping ceiling, please take care not to bump your head! (See the picture) There is a sink and shower.

Guest access

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.

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.

Karen's place is the best one so far for me. It was more than just a hotel room. It's clean, comfortable, convenient and well located to food, store and nightlife places. Karen make your stay easier and pleasant with her caring and helpful personality. She was awesome in all aspects. She's more than a host, she's like an angel. We invite everyone to book this place without thinking it twice.

Perfect place to stay in the middle of the Mission district -- functions much more like a "whole place" than a private room. Convenient to public transit.

This was a wonderful place to stay. A private entrance, very quiet, clean, comfortable, just perfect. The hosts have really thought of everything: I live in a very busy part of the city and am used to a lot of street noise, so it was actually a bit weird to me how quiet it was...but since they have thought of everything, I looked around and sure enough found a white noise machine to make me feel more at home. It really is a perfect place to stay, lots of restaurants nearby of all price ranges, and close to Dolores Park. You should definitely stay here if you get the chance!

Karen's place is a gem. Her place has the location, freedom, privacy, walkable and close to public transportation. Plus she is surrounded by some of the best shops, restaurants, and local haunts the city has to offer in the Mission District. I should know since I grew up here. It has all the amenities you would need to make your stay care free and more than a few very nice surprises that future guests would love like I did. It is a rare find to have a wonderful place brimming with love and care while being affordable compared to anything offered by SF hotels and tourist traps. Only those like me who have traveled to every hotel in her price range can truly understand how special her place is. I came back to SF for a funeral and her place, even the neighbors, made me feel comfortable like it was family and I was home. It's hard to find a value on that. I hope to come back every time I come to SF and stay at her place- no doubt about it!

The best airbnb I have yet to stay at! Karen's place is absolutely amazing and where it is located makes you feel safe unlike other areas of the city. The room was so nice and so clean, it looks just like the photos. She has everything you could ever possibly need while traveling, it really is a home away from home. Karen was also very accommodating with our travel tomes and check in, she so kindly got the room ready for us well before the actual check in time. I would definitely stay here again and would 100% recommend this place to friends and family.

Karen is a great host! My husband and I stayed at her place for three nights and had a seamless, pleasant experience. Checking in was easy, the place was clean and located in a fun neighborhood (Mission District), and Karen was very friendly. We will definitely return the next time we're in San Francisco.

Karen User ProfileKaren is a superhost.

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.
