The space

A fully separate quiet private bedroom in the back of our organic garden with a Meyer lemon tree, olive tree, beautiful flowers, and our organic garden. A full bed with sheets, wifi and your own separate entrance. Also with a small microwave and refrigerator in the room. Wifi too, of course.
We are one of the few neighborhoods with free and generally unlimited parking. However, San Francisco public transportation is one of the best in the world and we are only a 10 minute walk (buses) or a 15 minute walk (underground/BART) to all that the city has to offer (the castro, downtown, Chinatown, waterfront, Embarcadero, amazing restaurants such as Francis and Blue Plate, Golden Gate Park, museums, Japantown, north beach, USF, Hastings, GGU, Haight/Ashbury, etc). And we are at most a 20 minute cab or Bart ride from the SF airport.
Shared bathroom in main house. Dogs, cats and chickens make their home here, all well behaved and respectful. They are our family's responsibility, not yours.

We love meeting people from all over the world and look forward to meeting you!

*local law requires me to add the following language: "Possession of a San Francisco Short-Term Rental Registration Certificate certifies that the registration certificate holder has agreed to comply with the terms of the San Francisco Short-Term Residential Rental Ordinance (San Francisco Administrative Code Section 41A). This ordinance does not require an inspection of the unit by the City for potential Building, Housing, Fire or other Code violations."

Chris' place is in a good area, the bus stop with a bus to downtown is 7 minutes away. She and her kids are really friendly, the kids even brought us some hot chocolate and she left us a little eastersurprise :) Thank you for everything!

Chris was great, she assured me if we needed anything to let her know. Very inviting for my husband and 2 year old son.The room itself is separate from the home which has pros and cons. Pros is your secluded and own entrance and con to use the restroom you have to walk in home which is in the back. The 3 dogs can be much but they are friendly. Overall it's a great stay very quiet and peaceful and 2 daughters are sweet. Can't beat the price! Definitely will stay here again! :)

The room is exactly how it is described. The room is surrounded by a beautiful garden with some friendly cats, chickens, and dogs. The bathroom was a little bit out of the way. The bus stop is very close which was nice. Chris and her kids were super nice and accommodating. She invited me to eat dinner with them after my late flight and baked muffins before our check out. The room was stocked with everything you could need--tea, coffee, water, utensils, microwave, etc.. overall was a great stay.

Our stay in Chris's place was great. The room was clean. The place is of course small but cozy and never claustrophobic. My friend and I fit in the bed comfortably and the mattress was so nice like a hotel's bed. There were two firm pillows for each of us and a cute decorative one as well! The extra fleece blanket was a nice touch and kept was a little extra warm. Chris was a wonderful host and even shared her homemade granola with us as well as saved our near disaster on our last night of the trip! Be sure to stock up on allergy meds because her dogs are very soft but also energetic!

I really enjoyed my stay with Chris. It is a wonderful place. The entire house, including Chris, her 3 children, 4 dogs, 3 cats and 4 chicken is like a little sanctuary. I felt very welcome and cared for there. It was a wonderful experience. The room in the garden house has a very warm feeling to it. It is like being in the middle of the forest, surrounded by trees and flowers. Occasionally the cats and chicken say hello. I really enjoyed talking to Chris. She is a really open, generous, good-hearted person. I could not have imagined a better place to stay in San Francisco.

Hi --

Used to travel the world pre-kids and now cannot wait to introduce the world to my kids and my kids to the world. We love to meet people and love hosting friends, family and soon-to-be friends at our place. We love organic farming, raising our chickens and kids and living simply but wonderfully here in this urban mecca -- San Francisco.

Best to you and yours!
