Reservations of one to three months are currently being accepted. I enjoy entertaining, so it's likely that while you're with me, I will feed you an evening meal or two. While you are always welcome to keep your food in the refrigerator, I ask that any cooking be kept to a minimum. (Let's talk first if you're a huge fan of cooking.)
MISSION MINI includes full access privileges to the common areas of my large, fully-furnished 3-bedroom apartment, which includes a living room, kitchen and dining nook, and a redwood sun deck with city skyline view. There is also a working washer and dryer set that I don't hype because they are old, small and temperamental. But they function and you are welcome to use them.
WALK TO Dolores Park, Valencia Street shops and restaurants, or nearby gyms. BART is 15 min by foot and two bus lines to downtown are within a half block. Easy access to 101 and 280.

*** 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 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!
accueil tres sympa
LLa chambre est petite mais le lit est tres bon.
La salle de bain artagé est correct sans plus.
JayBee est vraiment tres accueillant et chaleureux.
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.
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.
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!
