Sunny room, near Golden Gate Park

Apartment - Private room · Arguello Blvd, San Francisco, CA 94118, United States

Room is in a 3 bedroom apartment. Second floor of a 3 apartment/floor building. 1/2 block from Golden Gate Park. Close to numerous bus lines. Cafe on corner.

The room has a full size bed with fresh sheets. Calm environment. There is one shared bathroom in the apartment. Big, spacious kitchen. The place has a pretty open floor plan and is a typical old SF apartment.

We are a pretty mellow household. I work on the computer much of the time that I am home. My wife may be working on her own projects, or cooking. At night we like to watch tv in the living room. Our dog lazies around the apartment(but not allowed in your bedroom).

Neighborhood is pretty safe. It is a mostly residential area of the city. We are literally a half block from Golden Gate Park and about 6 blocks from the Presidio. We live on a somewhat busy street for the neighborhood, as there is access to a golden gate park entrance on our corner. There is a very popular cafe on our corner, a grocery market another half block down(with a great turkey sandwich), there is a Safeway Supermarket 7 blocks away(10 minute walk, if even). There are many restaurants on Clement street(15 minute walk), Geary street(12 minute walk), Balboa street(10 minute walk), and Haight street(15-20 minute walk)

There are 2 busses that stop on our corner. One takes you downtown in 25 minutes one way, and takes you to the beach in 15 minutes the other way. The other bus takes you to the Mission in 20 minutes one way, and to the Presidio in 5 minutes the other way. There are also other busses 2 and 3 blocks away, which take you downtown in 20 minutes or towards the beach in 15 minutes.

  • JoAnna and James are the most welcoming hosts I have met so far! The room is big and with lots of light; only down side and up side at the same time: it's in the city which means car/bus/trams noises but again this is the city, you are close to everything!
    Overall an awesome experience!

  • I got to stay with James and JoAnna for weeks while finding a place to live in SF. They both made me feel very comfortable and I felt at home right away. I slept so well - very little noise from the street/ neighbors/ apartment, plus a comfortable bed with lots of blankets if needed. Without a car, I was able to easily get to work downtown as well as other parts of the city by bus. Two grocery stores, laundromats, fantastic coffee, and of course the park are all within walking distance. Restaurants on Geary, the Haight and the Inner Sunset are all walkable. But James and JoAnna themselves are what make this place so great. I really enjoyed my time with them, and think they would be great hosts to anyone. I'm recommending them to all my out-of-town guests.

  • I had a great stay with Jaymes and Joanna and Norman. James and JoAnna are wonderful hosts and I enjoyed getting to know them during my visit---I have new friends in San Francisco. Maps and info about San Francisco are provided in the room. Norman is a charmer and will quickly steal your heart. The room is large and cheery, with nice desk/vanity, drawer space with cedar lined drawers, and an empty closet waiting for your clothes. The bed is comfortable and the covers cozy. The location is excellent. MUNI lines 5 and 33 are right at the house and 31 and 38 are within walking distance. Golden Gate Park is half a short block away, museums are within walking distance. The location is away from the craziness of downtown, but easily accessible by public or other transportation.

  • I had a great stay at James and JoAnna.. and don't forget Norman :) They were lovely hosts and i enjoyed the time a lot! My room was so nice and sunny! And on days without fog, you can even see the top of the Golden Gate Bridge through the window! With the bus, you are in downtown of San Francisco in about 20 Minutes. And the entrance of the Golden Gate Park is right in front of the door. So the house is perfectly located. The house was clean and really comfy! I would completely recommend the room, the house and of course James and JoAnna as great hosts! I met some new friends :)

  • I had an emergency so I can not stay at their place. However, the owner is very nice and communicative.

  • Pros:
    -James and JoAnna were able to accommodate a one-night stay and late check-in before flying out the next day.
    -James met us outside the apartment when we arrived
    -Their dog is incredibly cute
    -It was nice talking to Joanna in the morning.
    -The bath towels were especially soft. The sheets were clean.
    -It was nice being close to Golden Gate park and going for a jog in the morning before getting on an airplane.
    -Velo Rouge cafe a block away is nice for breakfast
    -Laundromat a couple blocks away

    Cons:
    We were looking for a quiet place to stay for one night before flying the next day and were disappointed that the room was very noisy. We selected this location because it was described as a "calm" which I misunderstood to mean quiet. The street is very loud and the windows are poorly insulated from noise. There were large trucks, honking, and sirens all night and we slept poorly.

    In addition the bed is uncomfortable and sags in the middle. One person may be less uncomfortable sleeping in the middle of the sag, but it is very uncomfortable for 2 people to sleep in because we both fell in toward the sagging middle.

    The apartment and bedroom was less clean than the other Airbnb homes we have stayed at. It seemed to need a vacuuming and dusting.

    The value is acceptable for 1 person ($65) but the price for 2 people ($95) is not a good value. There are better options available in SF for two people for $95.

  • James and JoAnna made my stay in San Francisco very comfortable. They were really friendly and accomodating. Their place is welcoming and easy to get to by public transit. The park and cafe nearby were wonderful. I would absolutely stay again. Kirsten

  • TEN stars! A beautiful home, a really nice room with large sunny windows that look out on the warm green neighborhood. The best neighborhood in SF as far as I'm concerned. James is a great host, friendly and made me comfortable, but the star of the show is the pup, his sweet, quizzical exuberance. I left convinced that I gotta find an apartment somewhere in this neighborhood and finally get myself a dog! Thanks all!

  • James and Joanna are very nice people. Their home is in a great area steps from Golden Gate Park, coffee shops, restaurants, grocery stores, and public transportation. The room was clean and nice and has a big bay window, There is lots of light in the room because of the big windows and there is a desk and chair there inside the room, and the Wifi works. The bathroom is just 10 steps down the hall and they keep their house clean and comfortable. If you pay for a hotel when this is available, you are just wasting your money.

    Now go have fun!

  • Awesome home! The appartment is nicely decorated and very cozy. The area is perfectly calm, nice and exactly at the golden gate park. We watched movies together, shared food (they really know how to cook delicious dishes) and had interesting conversations. Still everyone had their private time when they wanted it.
    Whether you love dogs or not, their Havanese is absolutely adorable, funny quiet and super clean.
    I would always go back to these two (and a half) nice people who chose to live in San Fran!
