The Space

This a beautiful, spacious bedroom with full private en suite bath and stunning bay and city views from the 3 large bay windows. It is in the back of our home and very private and quiet, with wonderful eastern morning light. It includes a double bed with new plush mattress & box spring, soft sheets & towels in pleasant pastel colors, white Berber carpet, spacious period dresser with hanging space for your belongings, desk and chair in a room with original high coved ceilings.
The private en suite bathroom includes a new Grohe rainshower and handheld showerhead, heated toilet seat, shower robe, and hairdryer.

Free wireless Internet and free domestic long-distance and international long-distance calling to over 150 countries included.

Foods for a light breakfast (usually including fresh fruit, cereals, oatmeal, soy or almond and cow’s milk), as well as tea & instant coffee are included.

Experience the best of San Francisco! We live on the best block of palm-tree lined Dolores Street, bordering the cute 24th Street shopping area of Noe Valley, and the dynamic Mission district. Whether you want quaint cafes, trendy restaurants & bars, hot exercise studios, a Whole Foods or modern boutiques, as well as transport to downtown and the tourist attractions, all are a short, easy walk away.

We are an easy 2-block walk to the J-Church (24th Street stop), 4-block walk to the BART (24th Mission stop), and 1/2 block to the 48 MUNI (24th Street at Dolores). Taxis are easy as well.

Parking is free and readily available on our block, rental cars are a short BART or MUNI ride away, and car-sharing services have nice cars available in our neighborhood.

We live at the highest point on our hill in a wonderful, light-filled penthouse 1909 Edwardian condo with views from every window, 4 bedroom / 2 bath with original details including wainscoting, high coved and boxbeam ceilings, and tastefully remodeled kitchen & baths (you get 1 br & 1 ba). Our Chef's Kitchen has all the amenities: gas stove, microwave, dishwasher, double sink with “hotshot” instant hot-water for tea/coffee, all cooking utensils, and laundry room with high efficiency washer & dryer available for your use. Formal dining room, living room with working fireplace, stereo, basic cable and television, and our other bedrooms complete our home. We live on the 3rd floor (it’s a long set of stairs).

We are a young family with mom, dad, 2 boys aged 6 and 4, and a very friendly indoor-only cat. Both parents work and both boys go to school full-time weekdays and we’re out and about most weekends. We have a housekeeper who comes every-other Thursday. We enjoy cooking, entertaining and meeting new people, and of course are respectful of your own private space in our home.

You are welcome to join us for a meal if you give us a day's notice and we’re cooking at home (which we usually do, husband/dad is a gourmet Indian fusion chef who makes amazing organic vegetarian/ vegan dishes); please bring a bottle of wine or something to share.

Yogesh speaks Hindi and Punjabi as well as English; we both can manage a bit of German, and have close friends who speak German if we need to translate. Kate is a women's lacrosse official, attended George Mason University and The Wharton School at University of Pennsylvania; and works in the renewable energy industry.

2-night minimum, 3-week maximum rental period.

  • We had a great time at Kate and Yogesh's, the room was lovely with an amazing view and great bathroom. The best part about this place is the location it is walking distance to 24th st shops, valencia st restaurants and castro st- all great fun!
    Would highly recommend this room, Kate and Yogesh weren't there during our stay but communication was super friendly and easy pre arrival.

  • The room has a FANTASTIC view. The location couldn't be better: right in the middle of two great San Francisco neighbourhoods (the Mission and the Noe Valley). For those with business downtown (as I did), the BART is a quick and pleasant 5-10 minute walk. Kate and Yogesh are wonderful and accomodating hosts. I highly recommend this place.

  • Kate and Yogesh were wonderful hosts. The room is beautiful, comfy, and has a lovely view. Great location for accessing public transportation too. I thoroughly enjoyed staying with them and getting to know them. They made everything so easy for me, and I look forward to staying there again. Very gracious, interesting people. Thanks so much, Kate and Yogesh!

  • If you are visiting San Francisco you would be hard pressed to find a place to stay with a more beautiful view. Kate, Yogesh and their two boys were a delight in one of the best neighborhoods in the city.

    October 2012
  • What an amazing location. Within an easy stroll of so many great restaurants, cafes, and places to shop for all the things you did not know you really needed (such as that trio of stuffed mice).

    Kate and Yogesh and their entire family are so warm and welcoming. This was out first AirBnb experience and we can only hope the rest of our experiences come close to this.

  • Fantastic location,amazing views.Nicely appointed room with up to date ensuite facilities. Friendly,welcoming couple with delightful boys!
    Convenient for public transport and very accessible to the 24th St retail and dining area which is worth exploring.

    October 2012
  • The view is amazing!!! The area is also very great and Kate & Yogesh are very nice. We have loved our stay. I highly recommend this place.

    October 2012
  • Kate & Yogesh were awesome hosts. They were very friendly and helpful as I navigated my way around the city. Both expressed concern that my stay was going well and inquired if there was anything they could do improve not only my time at their place, but also whilst in SF. The morning I left, Kate inquired about feedback and anything I would change, which was very cool.

    The room itself was comfortable and quite. The location is in a beautiful part of the city, a mere block and a half from Muni. I'd would recommend this listing without hesitation.

  • Having lived in SF, my boyfriend and I chose this spot knowing it is one of the city's best neighborhoods - charming, safe, walking distance to Castro, Mission and Dolores Park, restaurants, bars and live music, etc. We parked rental car upon arrival (we found free street parking!) and happily walked and took public transit for the few days we were in SF.

    As other reviewers have repeated, this is a wonderful home and view from bedroom is fantastic. We also enjoyed modern, roomy shower. Amazing value!

    It was fun to catch up with Kate at farmer's market and learn about her efforts to preserve neighborhood square.

    Tips - best for cat-friendly and kid-friendly folks.
