We are on the lower part of Twin Peaks just above the Castro district. Bring your walking shoes and make San Francisco your gym! It is a 15 minute walk down to Castro & Market where most major MUNI lines (K,L,M,T,S and F-Market historic street cars) converge. If you don't want to hike back up the hill, the 33 Stanyan busline is only one relatively flat block away and the 37 Corbett drops off right behind the building. The 33 also connects you easily with UCSF, the Haight, and Golden Gate Park and heads to the Mission District and Potrero Hill in the opposite direction. This is truly in the center of San Francisco and all the major attractions are easily accessed by transit or you can drive here and have easy, free parking, no neighborhood permits necessary.

My partner Colleen and I have lived in San Francisco for many years and love welcoming folks to our great City by the Bay. We can make sure you figure out transit and find your way to wonderful restaurants, unexpected and hidden gems of "Baghdad by the Bay", museums, and fun. If you love opera, theater and/or classical music, we can order single tickets for you using our subscription discounts and perhaps provide you with some live music using our 5'11" grand piano.

If you want comfort, serenity, affordability, and a chance to experience San Francisco like a local - come stay with us.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Melinda tiene una casa espectacular !!

    La habitación es genial y el baño, aunque esta fuera de la habitación es de uso privado.
    Durante los dos días que nos alojamos en su casa Melinda nos trató muy bien y nos facilito nuestra estancia.

  • My fiancé and I absolutely loved staying at Melinda and Colleen's place! They were both extremely hospitable and the bed was super comfortable. We liked the location since it was a short walk or bus ride to multiple areas like Castro, Downtown and Ashbury and Haight. We highly recommend staying with them!

    September 2013
  • Melinda's apartment has to be one of the cleanest BNB units I have stayed in! Highly recommended to those who like to stay in safe and quiet neighbourhood.

    September 2013
  • We remained in S.Francisco 5 nights.
    The room in the beautiful house of Melinda was really quiet and clean, even if not very large. Our private bath was very confortable.
    Melinda was very kind and friendly.
    She offered us coffee and milk every morning. She and Colleen took us to visit a museum and a beautiful park by the ocean.
    The house is 15 minutes walk from Castro, a very colorful quartier. There we could take the subway, the bus or the streetcar to go everywhere in S.Francisco.
    S.Francisco is a very cold town. Fortunately Melinda sent us a long message to inform us about the town and also about the cold weather!
    But thanks Melinda, Coleen and the inhabitants of S.Francisco even the cold weather became warmer.

  • It was a great stay. Very warm and welcome. The cereals for breakfast were very delicious. Especially the good recommendations of melinda were very helpful and made our time in San Francisco perfect! Thanks a lot for everything.

    July 2013
  • Melinda was a great host. Her home was very beautiful and the rooftop view was astonishing. We have spent two amazing days in this wonderful city and Melinda helped us make the most of our time.

    June 2013
  • We spent three nights at Melinda's place in San Francisco and our stay couldn't have been a better first experience with airbnb. The room and the bathroom are large and confortable, the apartment looks even better than in picture. The view of the city is amazing. Melinda and Colleen were very kind and friendly hosts, providing useful advice on things to do and see and being flexible on check in and out time. The neighbourhood is nice and quiet, just a walk from Castro, and well connected with public transit.

    June 2013
  • Melinda's apartment is very comfortable and clean. We just spent 2 days in San Francisco, so we didn't had time to engage because we were out all the time. She gave us maps and all information and we had a great time in San Francisco.

    June 2013
  • We had a great time at Melindas and Coleenes Appartment. Everything was as expected. Both were very friendly and engaged to make our stay comfortable. The view to SanFrancisco is cool.
    If I ever go back to SF I will certainly try to book my room there again. :-)
    Also, I left my leather jacket in another hotel that we were staying after SF and I asked Melinda if I could have it sent to their side to pick it up when we fly back to germany from SF. That was no problem for her, so thanks a lot for her support on this, otherwise I would not know how I could get back my jacket (and my homekeys !!).

    Response from Melinda:

    Thank you Oliver for this lovely review and the lovely bottle of wine that you gave us for holding your jacket!

  • Melinda and Colleen were gracious, accommodating hosts with an amazing space and knowledge of the city to share. The room and bath had everything you would need and the view from the terrace was incredible. Having never been to San Francisco or previously used Airbnb we had some apprehensions. However they disappeared with each part of the experience thanks to our hosts. We will return for sure.

Rice University
I live in San Francisco, but my soul is usually hovering somewhere above the high deserts of New Mexico. Music is my first language, but I speak a smattering of Spanish and am fairly fluent in operatic Italian and German. I am dangerously over-educated with a B.A. in Music from Rice University, an M.Div. from San Francisco Theological Seminary, and a D.Min. from Drew University. My partner Colleen and I have been together for just over 10 years and love to travel - especially to places where great music is to be found. We have rented apartments in Rome and Paris and spent a magical week on an olive farm in Fiesole. We regularly go to Santa Fe for the opera and chamber music festival and to Sea Ranch to practice the restorative pursuits of cooking, reading, hiking, and napping. When I was in high school, I was given a letter opener with this phrase from the prayer of St. Francis and I think it fits me: "Where there is sadness, let me sow joy".
