*** About the Neighborhood

LOCATED on trendy 22nd Street on a quiet, safe, owner-occupied block of the happening Mission District neighborhood. Situated amongst the hottest restaurants in the Bay -- Flour & Water, Local's Corner, Central Kitchen, Universal Cafe, Heirloom, and many, many more.) Walk to BART, Dolores Park, Valencia Street shops and restaurants, and General Hospital. Easy access to 101 and 280.

Two bus routes to downtown within a half block of the property. BART is a 15 minute walk.

THE NEIGHBORHOOD is the cultural and culinary epicenter of the city and the Bay Area. The Mission District, long known as the Bohemian and Latin Quarter, has seen an unprecedented influx of investment and activity that has resulted in the greatest concentration of arts, eateries, bars, shops, street life, and urban culture of any of San Francisco's residential neighborhoods. The Mission neighborhood of today is the Bay Area’s countercultural crossroads and youth ground zero, akin to Haight Ashbury of the 1960s, if you were to add a tattoo rub with a well-provisioned offering of fairly-priced locally-sourced restaurants.

For those unfamiliar with San Francisco, the Mission neighborhood is the city's oldest recorded settlement, founded in 1776 with the arrival of the Spanish and the erection of the still existing Mission Dolores. The Mission's Latin flair remains and it is also known for its fair climate and as a culinary hotbed. As one of the few neighborhoods to be spared destruction in the Great Fire of 1906, the Mission boasts one of the city's highest concentrations of Victorian buildings.

Cheers and namaste.

  • I stayed with JayBee for the second time now, and everything worked out great, just like last time! I was in San Francisco for work for a 2 months, and i needed a place to stay where things are organized and clean. If you've been dealing with sketchy hosts before, i can tell you: JayBee is your man! His place is clean and cozy, he's very friendly and clear as a host, everything works around this place, no awkward surprises.

    I also really like the area around the 24th street, between Mission and Portrero. In my opinion its the best part of the mission: many good bars, grocery stores, cafés and places to eat. At the same time, it's relatively mellow, you don't squeeze yourself through a bunch of tourists, it's still down to earth and not too upscale and fancy yet. Also, its well connected, not only by BART, but busses and so as well.

    When you're staying here, you also wanna make sure to ask JayBee a little about the area, about getting out in nature (if you're into that) or about things happening around! The tips he'll give you is more up to date than any guide books you'll find.

    Thanks for a great stay!

  • I stayed with JayBee for a month in his beautiful, sunny Mission district condo. The apartment is immaculate - extremely clean. The room I stayed in was very small but the bed very comfortable, and lots of light. JB knows the city very well and will give great advice about places to go, things to do, etc. Very active, busy guy.. I enjoyed staying with him very much. The BART is about a 15 minute walk from the apartment, the MUNI buses are closer.. about a 20 minute ride downtown.

  • I moved to San Francisco and was looking for a temporary accommodation till i found my own place. JayBee's place was a perfect fit. He responded immediately to my emails with lots of information about the place and rates. Check in was a breeze, he was kind enough to help me with my luggage too! He gave me great suggestions of what to see and where to go and it was a pleasure staying at his place. The room is perfect for one person, comfortable bed and a lot of closet space. The location is great with buses to downtown and BART a few blocks away. JayBee is indeed a superhost with a ton of information about the city and surroundings!

  • I had to be in San Francisco for a professional conference a Moscone Center downtown. The place is located a little over a block from the 27 bus that goes within a block of Moscone and Market Street. The neighborhood is safe for a single woman to move around in the evening (not sure about late night because I didn't try) The BART is accessible, but not nearly as close. JayBee helped me through the first verification process to get on board with AirBNB. He also helped me get my suitcase up the steps (very common in SF, and a challenge for women). He also gave me lots of tips about getting around the city, (including the caution about what would happen if the Giants won the World series, which they did). I had the smaller of the two rooms but that wan't a problem for me and I did not experience the street noise comment on by another reviewer. The place is very clearn and tastefully decorated and comfortable. I would stay there again if I am in San Francisco, though if my husband were with me I'd prefer the larger room. By the way, even though the airport shuttle say they only go to "hotels", they picked me up right out front and also took me to the other AirBNB place I stayed in SOMA my first night. Thanks again for a very positive (and economical) introduction to AirBNB!

  • The apartment is nice, but my experience with this location was not the best. The room is not well insulated from the outside noise or the noises from within the apartment, and the bed is really uncomfortable. If you are looking for a place to rest after a long day at work or touring the city, you are better off somewhere else. In addition, I felt very uncomfortable with the host; things like throwing some of my food away without asking, blasting his stereo system after 9pm on a weekday while I was trying to sleep, or leaving the bathroom door opened while he was showering were enough to prompt me to cancel this reservation halfway through my stay.
    I certainly DO NOT recommend this host or this location. There are a lot of nice places in other parts of the Mission, which are closer to Valencia St. and other happening places in the area, and that are not that much more expensive than this place.

  • I couldnt have asked for a better Airbnb host! JB was incredibly gracious throughout my stay and also very knowledgable about all things SF. His place has a cool and unique feel to it -- it's easy to see the amount of time and effort he has put into making it a great home for himself and his guests. Moreover, as someone who was moving to San Francisco from afar, I found JB to be the perfect person to help acclimate me to the area. JBs a really nice and genuine guy who went out of his way to make my stay the best it could be. I highly recommend his place to future Airbnbers.

  • Staying with JayBee was an awesome first airbnb experience. The Mission is a great area if you want to experience some of San Francisco's incredibly diverse culture and JayBee's place is within walking distance of a bunch of great spots. The place was impeccably clean and very comfortable. He's not kidding about the goose down duvet either it was very luxurious. JayBee is very laid back and a great host. He gave me a lift to Trader Joe's for some shopping, made me coffee and French toast on multiple occasions and even took me out to experience some of the epic San Francisco night life. Overall it was an exceptional experience and I would definitely stay with JayBee again given the opportunity.

    April 2012
  • Jaybee went above and beyond as a host and made my stay in San Francisco great. If you're looking for a room in a cool area with a relaxed and friendly host then this is highly recommended.

    March 2012
  • JayBee was an awesome. Super laid back offer great places to go out in SF and fun to just chat with. Apartment is in a great location and close to everything. Would definitely stay again!

About
Urbanist, outdoorsman, and cultural dilettante. Volunteer architectural tour guide for a local historic preservation society since 2004. I have the fine-grain knowledge of the city you would expect of a travel guide writer. Happy to share recommendations on the arts, cultural, music, dining, and bar scenes. My approach to hosting is guided by own travel experiences at various lodgings. What I found missing so often in my stays was a sense of warmth and place. So when I went to work on designing my own lodging experience, I was mindful of incorporating artwork, quality lighting, soothing colors and textures, tropical plants, and high-end comforts. After all, you don't put up with shabby sheets, pillows, blankets, and towels at home, so why should you downgrade when traveling? Consider me your local contact and friend for help with all things San Francisco. Better than at any hotel, really, because unlike the help downtown, I live in the heart of city rather than the ex-urbs, and I don't receive compensation from restaurants, bars, or galleries in return for my recommendations. San Francisco and Mission District neighborhood resident since 2003 -- originally from Seattle. Guests' Bill of Rights and Expectations 1. Your reservation is secure. I only accept a reservation if I'm sure I can honor it and the dates absolutely work for me. 2. Your privacy. I won't need to enter your room and will not do so without your knowledge and consent. 3. You're not subject to my personal life. You can expect that I will not have my friends and family hanging around. 4. A friendly, welcoming atmosphere. You can expect that I will leave the porch light on for you. 5. New and premium sheets and towels. 6. Clear communication to set expectations, offer feedback, and apprise you of my plans and schedule. 7. A clean living space in a curated environment. 8. An atmosphere that is respectful, flexible, and collaborative. 9. Customer support to get you oriented and offer recommendations. 10.A "thermostat" host experience that allows you the option of company over morning coffee and evening dinners or the freedom to go your own way. My News and airbnb insider tips, updated February 2014, attended masked Mexican "lucha libre" wrestling in the Mission District with the guest I'm hosting; January 2014, when booking for more than two weeks, you can often secure the best price by reserving at the monthly rate and save money even if you can't use all 30 nights; December 2013, always ask any potential host how many units are in the building and what any neighbors within the building are like. It's also entirely within your right to ask if the neighbors are on board with the airbnb experience; November, one of the leading causes of hosts cancelling reservations at the last minute is a landlord finding out about an unapproved airbnb situation. Ask your prospective host if they are a renter and what they can do for you should they need to cancel; October 2013, a last minute cancellation by a prospective host is the easiest thing that can go wrong on airbnb, since the penalties are relatively minor. Ask your host if he has cancelled on guests before and what certainty s/he can provide that your reservation will not be cancelled; September 2013, this is the final month to catch SF as the host city for America's Cup Race of multi-million dollar sail boats on the north waterfront overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz Island.
