Interaction with Guests
We are delighted to leave you on your own or have a glass of wine and conversation. We can also help you plan your exploration of our beautiful City. My partner Colleen and I have lived in San Francisco for many years and love welcoming folks to our home. 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.
We are on the lower part of Twin Peaks on Upper Market just above the Castro district. The Castro is lively and exciting 24 hours a day with bustling bars, cafes and shopping. It's also safe, yet exciting!
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.
Other Things to Note
Parking is on the street, but it is FREE (no neighborhood permit required) and easy!
Since this is an apartment building, we keep things pretty quiet as a courtesy to our neighbors, especially late at night. Also, we have two adorable parakeets who live in the dining room and do fly about for a little while in the mornings. Sometimes we also have our adorable, yet easygoing and quiet, God-dog Charlie here, so this is probably not the right place for you if allergies or animals are a problem. At other times, Charlie's cousin Sugar visits us too. Both dogs are very well-mannered. All our animals love guests who love them! We are very environmentally-conscious and invite our guests to join us in composting, recycling, and being responsible about the use of water and electricity. We hope you will feel at home here!
Nous avons passé un séjour très agréable dans l'appartement de Melinda et Colleen. L'appartement est spacieux et accueillant.
Melinda rempli parfaitement son rôle d'hôte en répondant à nos demandes.
Merci pour tout,
Erica et Florian
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!
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.
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.
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.

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 over 12 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".
