Private living room and adjoining bedroom in lovely Victorian home. Quiet street, well-located in Lower Pacific Heights. Free parking. Restaurants, shopping, and public transit nearby. Easy access to tourist attractions.
Our sunny, spacious flat is the second floor of a beautiful building on Lyon Street, one half block from California Street. Your private bedroom and separate living room are at the rear of the flat, overlooking a large backyard.
The bedroom has a new, comfortable queen bed, bedside table, lamps, chair, and chest of drawers. There is a closet stocked with bedding, towels, and wash cloths, as well as hangers, an iron, and an ironing board.
The living room has a queen-size, down-filled sleeper sofa, comfortable lounge chairs and cable TV for relaxing.
Both rooms are wifi accessible.
The flat has one and a half baths. The full bath is close to your rooms, while the half bath is located more to the front of the flat, where my husband and I reside with our daughter (when she is home from college.)
The full bath is shared. We will use it primarily for bathing, but otherwise use the half-bath, which is closer to our bedrooms.
You will have access to and use of our kitchen. It is fully equipped with oven, microwave, fridge, dishwasher, coffee maker, tea kettle, dishes, silverware, and pots and pans.
There is a laundry room with a washer and dryer available for your use.
Our lovely home was built in 1902, and still has its original (refinished) fir flooring, 10-foot ceilings, and some intricate built-in cabinetry typical of the period. The kitchen has been "updated" with custom cherry cabinets and tile counters, but retains its original Victorian charm.
We have one pet, an adorable eight year old Tibetan Terrier, friendly but not bothersome. Tibitan Terriers, like Poodles, are easy going and recommended for people who love dogs but have allergies (such as our daughter, who is allergic to cats and dogs).
We are a smoke free house.
Our lovely Victorian is in one of the most desirable areas of San Francisco, along the edge of Pacific Heights and less than two blocks from Presidio Heights. Laurel Heights and historic Fillmore Street, in the Western Addition, are nearby.
These neighborhoods are home to some of San Francisco's best shopping, eating, and drinking establishments.
Fillmore Street has dozens of restaurants, clothing and furniture stores. And, of course, the legendary jazz district and the famed Fillmore Auditorium music venue, plus the Sundance Cinema movie complex.
A smaller, neighborhood movie theater is just two blocks from the flat, on Sacramento Street. There is an eclectic mix of shops and restaurants along Sacramento Street.
Popular restaurants just a short stroll from our home include Eliza's (Chinese), Bistro SF Grill (gourmet burgers), Curbside Cafe (French Bistro), Sift (dessert cafe) and Osteria (Northern Italian). Ella's, one of the city's best known places for brunch, is just around the corner.
The neighborhood is centrally located with regard to many of San Francisco's major tourist attractions--such as the Golden Gate Bridge, the Presidio, the Palace of Fine Arts, the Marina Green, and Golden Gate Park (where you'll find the California Academy of Sciences, Steinhart Aquarium, the DeYoung Museum, Japanese Tea Garden, Conservatory of Flowers, and more).
Union Square, the Financial District, Ferry Building, and Fisherman's Wharf are readily available by public transportation.
A number of transit routes are nearby.
The #1 California runs 24/7 to the Financial District and the Ferry Building.
#38 Geary runs 24/7 to within a block of Union Square and, in the opposite direction, all the way out to Ocean Beach.
#24 Divisadero will take you (Northbound) to the Marina Green or (Southbound) to the Castro and MIssion districts. It runs 24/7.
Finally, the #43 Masonic from the Presidio will take you to the Haight Ashbury neighborhood and within a few block of Golden Gate Park.
We recommend downloading the SF Muni public transportation app, Next Bus, for the best routes and most accurate arrival and departure times.
Keep in mind that if you choose to drive, parking is difficult in most of San Francisco. However, parking is available on the premises.
Our home is a quiet and comfortable place to unwind after a day of exploring the sites, tastes and ambiance of San Francisco.
Enjoy your stay!

Wonderful house and hosts, everything was perfect. Thanks Renee and Ron, I'd stay there again if I have the chance to come back to amazing San Francisco.
Great location. Very safe neighborhood. Large bedroom and living room with comfortable bed. Friendly, gracious hosts. They were good sports staying up late to greet us. They provided us with a lot of information about the area and were very attentive to anything we needed. The kitchen was well equipped.
Renee and Ron where supersweet. They made sure we had an awesome visit to SF. The room was as nice as described and they went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. When they learned that we were on our honeymoon they even gave us a bottle of Cava which we of course shared with them.
Staying with Renee and Ron was a wonderful experience! Their home was charming, and so was their dog Quincy. They were very welcoming and easy to get along with. Renee even made us some delicious breakfast cookies! Thanks again for sharing your home with us!
Our stay with Renee and Ron was lovely. Ron was fun to chat with. Our family really enjoyed the bean soup, salad and hummus treat when we arrived. They treated us like family. Even Quincy the dog made friend with our daughter.
The neighbourhood is so close to the centre of the city. They provided their garage for parking was a big bonus and made our stay even more enjoyable. Will surely recommend Renee and Ron's appartment!
Renee and Ron were very welcoming. We were looking for somewhere to stay in the Pacific Heights neighborhood during our stay in San Francisco and couldn't have been happier with the location. The unit was very quiet, and the rooms were comfortable. Renee and Ron were wonderful hosts.
Renee and Roy are very friendly and easy to get along with. Both could not do enough to give advice when asked about directions, restaurants and sites. Very welcoming. Quiet neighbourhood with good restaurants in easy walk. We just needed more time, would love to go back and make the most of the apartment as it is definately a place you could relax and revive if time permitted.
