About this listing
Unbeatable location (just off 18th & Valencia). Bright room with an amazing bed. We're friendly and experienced hosts - we've hosted over 250 stays on Airbnb. Upgraded high-speed wifi. We keep the bathroom clean and stocked :) Full kitchen with all the essentials. Super easy access to public transport. Vibrant nightlife and restaurant scene. Short walk to Dolores Park, The Castro, Twin Peaks and Bernal Heights.
The apartment overall is bright and unusually large for San Francisco.
We use this listing for two of the three rooms in our apartment (see photos) so please inquire as to which room is available for the dates you're looking at. The rooms are very similar: both are bright and have truly glorious queen beds, both have bay windows. One also has a desk and the other has hammock chairs (not included in the photos). You're welcome to sleep three in the bed, or if you prefer, we can give you an air mattress to sleep a third person, which easily fits in any of the three rooms. If you want to squeeze in a fourth, send me a message and we can discuss.
The living room is sunny and spacious with bay windows, the comfiest sofa you'll ever sink into and a new flat screen TV with hook-ups to pretty much any computer or iPad for all your movie and TV watching needs.
The kitchen is clean and offers all the essentials for any cooking you choose to do when you're not exploring the city's vibrant restaurant scene.
The split bathroom is shared and has a separate bath/shower room and toilet room. We keep both clean and well stocked.
More photos available upon request.
What's ours is yours! (With the small exception of some of the food in the fridge) We're happy to share. Pots and pans, cooking ingredients, coffee and breakfast food in the morning, the TV, even toothpaste if you need it!
We'll provide you with clean sheets, towels, shampoo and soap when you arrive. There will be coffee, bread, eggs, milk and cereal in house, to which you are always welcome.
If you're arriving when we're not home, we have a lockbox so we'll make sure you're able to get in as soon as you arrive and we'll be around at some point to introduce ourselves.
We're also available by phone most of the time so please feel free to give us a call if you need any help making plans, getting things booked or figuring out logistics for your stay in advance.
Interaction with guests
My roommate and I are both friendly, love meeting new people and are both experienced travelers. If you want to hang out and talk, we're down. If you want privacy and time to yourself, we get that too. If you need recommendations for restaurants, bars, activities or anything else, we know the city and we're more than happy to point you in the right direction.
There'll usually be one of us around (Andy) but how much we'll be in the apartment will depend on the day. We both work Monday to Friday so we're mostly around on weekends and in the evenings during the week.
We often have two of our three rooms rented out so there's a chance you will be sharing the house with another guest. Please inquire for the dates you will be staying if you’d like to know with whom you’ll be sharing our home.
Other things to note
Please be aware that we are not a hotel and we do not operate like a hotel. While we do everything we can to make your stay as comfortable, convenient and enjoyable as possible, both my roommate and I work full time so we rely on our guests to handle room changeovers.
This means you will likely need to make up your own bed when you arrive (we will provide you with a full set of clean sheets) and leave the room as you found it when you depart.
We're very flexible so if you have a specific request, let me know and we will do our best to accommodate you.
As a general rule, we simply ask that you recognize you are sharing our home with us, and not staying in a hotel.
The only specific rule we have is that you should leave the room as you found it. We have the room professionally cleaned regularly but we do not have the room cleaned between every guest. This approach works extremely well and allows us to accommodate short stays, not charge a cleaning fee and be very flexible with checkin/out times.
Cancel up to 5 days before your trip and get a full refund. Cancel within 5 days of your trip and the first night is non-refundable, but 50% of the cost for the remaining nights will be refunded.
