I'm a retired college English professor; I speak a little Spanish, Italian & French. You will have a small (approx. 8 x 11 ft--room is best for one person) sunny private bedroom with two big south facing windows with city view. Very bright during the day, but has room-darkening shades for good sleep. Wifi internet, all day street parking. Bus at corner goes to beach, zoo, shopping mall; bus a block away goes to the city center. You can also walk to Glen Park BART subway in about 20 minutes (10 minute ride to city center, 30 min.to airport). Close to Cortland Avenue, the business street for my neighborhood. There you will find a library, gift shops, yoga studio, bank, coffee shops, bars, restaurants (Italian, Chinese, Indian, Japanese, Mexican, etc). I hosted international students for twenty years, so if you are new to San Francisco I can give you information & tips on where to go & what to see.
Feel free to use the living room & the dining room. Share renovated bathroom with me.
Interaction with Guests
I enjoy chatting with guests and am happy to share my favorite restaurants and other places.
Small, friendly neighborhood with nearby Flea Market on Sundays & Farmer's Market on Saturdays. Great organic grocery store with take-out deli. Lucky Horseshoe bar has live music several days a week. Rent an electric bike for 24 hours--$85. Have a pastry and coffee in the courtyard of Bernal Star Cafe. Climb to the top of Bernal Hill for a fantastic view of the city. Check out my Guidebook for more information.
#23 bus stops at my house, goes to zoo, beach or Glen Park BART station to connect with airport subway. #14 Mission bus runs 24 hours, goes downtown and back again. #24 bus goes to Castro and Pacific Heights. #49 bus goes to Fisherman's Wharf. Free street parking is easy during the day; after 6 pm you may have to park a couple of blocks away (try Agnon Street or Holly Park.) Be sure to read street signs before parking.
