About this listing
Cozy room, creatively decorated with local artists' work. Clean, comfortably furnished room (firm, full size mattress) and apartment, inside a worn but charming 1920's building with vintage details. We have great light and excellent central heat. Located in the Duboce Triangle neighborhood which is where the Castro, Lower Haight and Mission all converge.
This is a great location to experience the city, be close to all transportation and popular destinations.
Bonus: it's a beautiful neighborhood with old Victorians, tree and foliage lined streets and not too much fog.
You'll be close to Duboce, Buena Vista, and Dolores Parks and a short trip (about 20 minutes) to Golden Gate Park. It's a 10 minute Metro ride downtown. All metro lines, the F trolley and a few bus lines are within a block. BART is a 15 minute walk.
Your host is Marcia, a 20 year resident of San Francisco who can help you plan your visit and make timely suggestions. As an artist she is connected to many of the arts venues in the city and can assist you in finding your own favorites.
This is a room, an apartment, host and neighborhood that you will treasure!
Some things to consider:
This apartment is on the third floor--39 steps to get up here!
This is an urban neighborhood and there is some street noise. It usually quiets down about ten or eleven o'clock.
We have only one bathroom. You (and your fellow traveler, if that applies) will be sharing that bathroom with me.
Finally, I am very Allergic to Perfume and any product that has the ingredient "FRAGRANCE" in it. Please DO NOT use this here. Thank-you.
( I offer fragrance free products for you to use).
You have access to the kitchen in the mornings.
Interaction with Guests
I am flexible--sociable but not in your face. If you like to chat, or have questions I will always oblige.
The Duboce Triangle is a lovely, tree-lined neighborhood, centrally located and very convenient. It is a safe neighborhood, sunny and there are a lot of dogs.
Yes. The metro, buses, historic street car, and BART are all close by.

About the Host, Marcia
Once upon a time, many years ago, I took a cross country motorcycle trip and came to San Francisco. We rode down the coast of Oregon and came across the Golden Gate Bridge as the sun was setting and the sky was pink with fog and wind. The City looked magical!
But the first thing I thought of was, "why did anyone build a city on so many hills?" Can you tell I'm from the flat-as-a-pancake Midwest? I fell in love with San Francisco--and you will, too.
