Interaction with Guests
My partner and I are long time San Francisco residents and live with a friendly 12 lb dog. We can toss you a key and wish you well or help you map an "insider" tour de force.
The accommodation is relaxed and comfortable: the house is 2 story and we reside in the lower level. Your room and bath share the upper level with our common areas.
While we're often on the move with busy lives (the dog included!) - I make excellent coffee. Note: the dog is a hypoallergenic breed. She has hair (doesn't shed fur) so she's great for allergy-prone guests.
Our street is tree-lined, safe and quiet. The neighborhood boasts some of San Francisco's best weather and there's a convenient bus stop nearby. Corbett Avenue at Hattie Street (our approximate location) is a five minute walk into Castro village. Easily explore multiple parks, tons of restaurants (for every taste and budget!), and the famous Castro Theatre and Mission Dolores.
The Castro Muni station is so close - why drive? I recommend that you enjoy San Francisco without a car (it's easy and cheap) but there is ample street parking with restrictions.
And the BEST part? This house is ideally situated for city-wide exploration!
The Castro Muni station (underground) or the historic Market F-line are a 5 minute walk (or quick bus ride).
Cable Cars, Chinatown, downtown shopping, Fisherman's Wharf, the Ferry Building, AT&T Park, the Haight and Golden Gate Park - they're all easily accessible!
