Interaction with Guests
This listing can be very private as you have your own separate entrance. You may not even see the residents of the Palace while you are here and it is quiet and peaceful if you need a at home work sanctuary. If you do want interaction we are very friendly and love to share our beautiful home and art!
One of the things I love about this neighborhood is that while it is quite central to many interesting sites and places to visit, it feels like a quiet, residential neighborhood. Our house is so peaceful and yet so convenient for finding your way around the city. The views looking west are spectacular as are the sunsets. Amenities like grocery stores, coffee shops, a great all American Diner (Mel's), drugstores, restaurants, Golden Gate Park with running and biking trails, great vintage clothes shopping( Haight St.) are all close by.
It is the perfect location if you are attending Music concerts in Golden Gate Park including Outsidelands or Alices Summerthings or Hardly Strictly Bluegrass
Yes there are several MUNI bus lines within a 1 to 4 block radius.
I have a great friend who drives a taxi and she gives special rates to my guests.
