1500 square feet of natural light, skylights, and park views. Open flowing spaces is conducive for working, relaxing, or family time. Very quiet street that is close to 101, 280, MUNI, BART. Friendly neighbors, safe area, and parking. +AppleTV
"Casa de Balboa" was built in 1943 and has charm, wood floors, a modern kitchen, gas stove, and lots of natural light. This lovely corner home is on a quiet street along Balboa Park. Casa de Balboa is a parkside, commuter's dream.
The rooms are upstairs. Both bedrooms have queen beds and another 1 person can sleep on the sectional sofa. There is an air mattress available to put in the sunroom at an additional fee and notice.
Balboa Park has 4 newly resurfaced tennis courts, a massive playpark for kids, a new skatepark, baseball fields, soccer fields, and new basketball courts. The olympic size swimming pool is 40 steps from the front door.
Both queen beds have Hypoallergenic 100% Waterproof Mattress covers. The kitchen faucet has filtered drinking water. There are tennis balls, tennis racquets, foam roller, steps, weights, and coolers in case you want to kick it at one of San Francisco's gorgeous parks.
The sunroom is a wide open space facing the park - another wide open space. Use the room to read, work, stretch, do yoga, or have a tea party. Guests have moved the table there to work and be creative.
This is a working class, family-friendly neighborhood with everyone a bit chatty so don't expect hurried city folks. There is plenty of parking on the street and often right in front of the house. Seriously, plenty of parking.
Getting around is easy and fast. Freeways are close so San Mateo is 20 minutes away. SOMA is 12 minutes away.
Public transportation is handy with J Church one block away and BART 2 blocks away. Within minutes you can be dropped in SOMA, The Mission, or Noe Valley.
Walk to Mission Street bars and restaurants. Whole Foods is 4 blocks away. The police station is within the park which makes a lot of people feel safe day and night.
There is a massive smart TV with AppleTV, Netflix, and a DVD player. Plug in the laptop or use (website hidden) Chromecast, it's a modern media center without the hassle. The Internet speed is very fast and stable.
For a guy, I am a bit of a neat freak. Torture for friends but great for AirBnB guests. Towels are bleached, sheets are washed in hot, and cleaning service does a great job.
I am rarely home. If I stay at the house, I stay in the in-law downstairs. I only come up to stock something with your approval - or get invited for a glass of wine.
Guests will have access to the entire house except the garage (downstairs). Coded entry.
I try to greet the guest for a quick tour and that's about it. Feel free to invite me over but I am rarely at the house.
My neighborhood rocks! The park is my front yard. I can get anywhere in minutes, including SFO by BART or car. It's the perfect city home without being overwhelmed by the city, parking hassle, noise, or hills.
J Church is a block away. BART is 2 blocks away. It's ridiculous to not use it.
The house has a lot of original artwork if you like to surround yourself with creativity. Enjoy the four Blair Bradshaw paintings including the large masterpiece "Periodic Table" he painted in 1998. Another work by Rosemary Feit Covey is in the entry.

James is awesome. Was there in person to meet and great with a bottle of wine and a walk through of the place. The place was fantastic and parking on the street is extremely easy. Walking distance to a market, across the street from the park where I was constantly heading out to meet the dogs being walked. Really an excellent experience and I hope to stay there again. The only complaint I have is that I never was able to enjoy a glass of wine with him!
He is excellent at giving you your complete privacy, and if you need anything or have questions he is extremely fast to respond via text or email.
My business partner and I stayed at James's home for a month while on a business trip. James was a fantastic host. The house was better than the beautiful photos he has on the profile. In addition we found the space very quiet, great to work in and within walking distance to the Bart and Muni. The swimming pool take 20 seconds to walk to and it's fantastic if you like lane swimming. If you like tv, he has an awesome tv and sound system.
I'll happily stay there again if the opportunity arises. Thank you James, for letting us stay at your beautiful home, you're a gent true and true.
James was very accommodating for our SF vacation trip and was very communicative. The unit was immaculate and very clean, everything was provided for and we had a great experience in staying at his place. Easy to park, easy to get on the freeway. It was everything we hoped for and more, we loved it!
The house is even cuter than pictures show. It is located in a beautiful residential area, but yet very close to major highways and transportation points - so you can get anywhere from there. There is gorgeous park right across the street, with tennis courts, swimming pools, and lots of space. The house is spacious, super clean and well furnished. James has it completed equipped with everything one might need. Besides all these, James is a wonderful host, and gave us complete privacy but also helped us with great tips of the city.
We had a really good time staying at James home. The house is nice and comfortable, clean and well equipped with everything you could need.
James welcomed us, so we could enjoy meeting him in person, which was really fun. and he stayed in touch to make sure we are having a good time.
A great experience for our family!
Thank you James!
