The Space

We're centrally located in SoMa, one of San Francisco's more interesting and totally fun neighborhoods! Breweries, Coffee Roasters, Nightclubs and amazing restaurants are all just 5 minutes distance or less! Or just relax and enjoy our light-filled, victorian space.

We're travelers at heart and love hosting other travelers! At our place you're going to get a local SoMa experience, not a hotel or typical tourist experience. We think that's one of the best parts of staying on Airbnb, and at our places around the US! : )

Your private room, the Purple Room, has a queen-size bed, super comfortable bedsheets, a closet and a comfortable reading chair. WiFi access throughout the house!

The house is a historic 1902 Victorian 5BR. Sophie, a wonderful tibetan terrier, lives here temporarily. This is one of four rooms. The others can be found on the right under 'Related Listings':

• Blue Room

SoMa's multifaceted character brings together all sorts of people. Tech-savvy entrepreneurs rub elbows with well-read bohemian types, and museum curators share the sidewalks with ill-groomed individuals. Hip bars, clubs, and specialty coffee cafes hide among SoMa’s increasing number of vacant industrial warehouses awaiting renovation. On game day, visitors to SoMa include those looking to hear the crack of the bat—this neighborhood is the home of the San Francisco Giants.

  • Stayed in the Purple Room with Maria as the host. Maria is a gracious host, and very nice. Purple Room is very comfortable bed and it has a desk for you to work on. Overall, I had a great stay. I would recommend staying with Maria and Graham in Purple Room to anyone visiting San Francisco.

  • I had a very positive experience--the room was exactly as it appears in the photo, and my host Maria was welcoming and helpful. The room was very clean, as was the rest of the house, and surprisingly quiet for being in the heart of the city. The location was really convenient--close to Market Street, BART and other public transportation, and there was good coffee and a well-stocked organic grocery just a few blocks away.

  • The hosts were great. Very warm and hospitable. I've spent 4 nights at Graham & Maria's and during that short period of time, their place became a home away from home in my mind.

    Highly recommended.

  • Awesome hosts- both Graham and Maria were really friendly! Room is exactly as pictured(plus the table), very bright and feels like home. House is super clean.

    All local places they recommended were worth visiting and were within 2-5minutes walk

  • I had a lovely stay with Graham and Maria in the Purple Room. Everything was clean and comfortable. Graham graciously allowed me to store my luggage in the garage until check in and pointed out some nearby neighborhood eateries. When I finally got settled in my room, Maria showed me around the apartment, explained the heat and the items in the kitchen that were for guest use. Yes, there are four rooms rented out to guests, but you would never know it. I passed a few other guests in the hall, but it was very quiet. The use of the bathroom and kitchen were never a problem. Given that I have family in San Francisco, I'm sure I will be back.

  • Had a lovely stay with Graham & Maria. Room was very comfortable, house was very quiet, neighbourhood was great, a quirky off-beat location in San Francisco, but within a very short walking distance (10 min) of Union Square & Market St. Would definitely choose to stay here again!

  • I loved my stay here! Maria was very responsive from the beginning and very helpful. Getting from SFO to their place via BART was fast and easy and since I arrived before the check in time Maria let me drop my bag off. The listing looks exactly like what's pictured.. clean, organized, and quiet. Very easy to get in and out of the house as there were only keypads. So convenient! I never got to meet the hosts and never ran into any of the other guests.

    Another great perk is that the hosts send a pdf of the best places to eat and things to do in the immediate area!

    If I have the chance to stay here again, I will definitely take it!

  • Myself and a friend stayed with Graham & Maria for 3 nights in the purple room. Maria was very nice and informative. Gave us a quick tour of the place and tips about the neighborhood. Their place was very clean and conveniently location to get to all major attractions. At first we didn't realize that 4 other rooms were rented out and was concerned with the bathroom situation but we had no issues/waits. Very helpful that the toilet is in a separate room from the shower. Would definitely stay with them again.
