About this listing
WELCOME TO SAN FRANCISCO!
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! : )

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.
