Interaction with guests
Guests can arrive whatever time they need. When possible, I enjoy greet ing guests and answer any questions they may have about SF and the local flavor. I work an irregular schedule so aside from introductions interactions may be brief. I can always be contacted by phone and text so am available to answer any questions. Please be considerate of other guests. Air BnB guests have been fabulous so far - so if they like to interact or just need a quiet private space- it all works well.
This house is one block off Mission St, near vibrant Valencia corridor, Cortland St, and 24th St. Full of Mexican and South American culture and all the innovative and creative flair from people living here from all over the world. We are right at the beginning of the famous Valencia corridor. Awesome restaurants, pubs, and unique arts and shopping opportunities. And I'm 3 blocks from Cortland St which is the renown main drag of Bernal Heights, one of the most interesting areas of San Francisco. If you're a foodie this is a great location. Awesome Holly Park- people and dog park one block away. Little store on the corner, health food market on Cortland, large supermarket and drug store 3 blocks away.

Public transport links are awesome from here. Access to 280 and 101 super close - best and quickest route to South Bay, Silicon Valley and SFO airport. Lots of parking all around here. Super convienient. Buses 14 and 49 run the length of Mission all the way to Embarcadero (near pier 39) The 24 bus runs straight to the Castro (15 Min) and then continues all across the city to the bay in the Marina area. Muni J line train is 1 block away and goes to castro area connecting with all areas of SF., Dolores park and then downtown or an easy link to a train to Ocean Beach.
