About this listing
We are currently not accepting any reservations due to a pending major remodel of our home. We have no idea when we will reopen the Garden Room. It will not be until in mid-2016 at the earliest. Please, no reservation inquiries at this time.
Why rent a room for $60-$90 per night and share your bathroom with the host?
Why be a $20 cab ride away from Valencia Street's bars, night clubs and restaurants when you can stay directly in the middle of our vibrant neighborhood?

Staying at Mary and Richard's place was like being in a dream. Their home is beautiful!!!
They were both wonderful and gave us all the advice that we needed to move around the city: maps, cards for the bus, train and ferry. They answer at every question that we have and made us feel like home.
We're going back to San Francisco without a doubt and we hope we can stay again at their place, they are an amazing couple!
Thanks Mary and Richard, you made our journey completely unbelievable!
We got to know Richard and Mary as empathic, intelligent, patient and flexible San Franciscans: they made us feel at home from the moment we arrived. Like good hosts they have the utmost respect for your privacy but are right there when you need them, providing helpful stuff like a clipper card (public transport) and more relevant info.
The apartment is a haven for city dwellers like us because it is small but cosy, very quiet at night (good bed!) and right in the middle of one of the most interesting neighborhoods of SF at the moment: The Mission. Great restaurants around the corner like the South Indian Udupi Palace at Valencia, but their spacious kitchen to use had us cooking some nights as well.
Richard and Mary were both very welcoming and gracious hosts. Transport was only a few minutes away and from there a quick trip into the city. The room was small, but comfy, and the bathroom clean. Overall a great experience in a hip and trendy part of SF - highly recommended!!
We stayed in this home for 4 nights. We had a wonderful time in San Francisco. Mission district was a perfect location for our stay. Staying in this home allowed us to feel that we were part of the community. We were close to the muni and bart. Lots to discover in walking distance off Mission and Valencia Street. Shops, markets, bars and restaurants.
Richard and Mary gave us advice on what to do in the area, instructions on how to get around and special events. (farmers market in the ferry building, car rental, clippers card, transit map, etc.)
The room and bathroom was cozy, quiet and private. The pictures in the post do not do their home justice, it is BEAUTIFUL! There were also maps and travel books available in the room which was nice for planning. We hope to come stay again or move in as permanent guests ;)
Mary and Richard are a perfect host. They will make you feel at home and are just a phone call away. The airbnb listing is a steal for the location and these wonderful hosts.
Wonderful caring hosts. Incredible experience. Their house is clean and located in a nice neighborhood. Thank you! Highly recommend.
Mary and Richard are excellent hosts and very thoughtful! Mary was extremely patient and very accommodating to some last minute changes to our booking. Their house is spotless and our room and private bathroom were very clean and organize. They also put in the bathroom great toiletries from H20. Their house is located in excellent spot very close to great restaurants, bars, shops and neighborhoods that you must visit. Outside the room there is a peaceful garden wit a relaxing water fountain. If you want to visit San Fran and have local's experience Mary's place is the place to be. We would be happy to stay with Mary and Richard again if we're ever in San Francisco again!

About the Host, Mary
I have lived in San Francisco for over 30 years. I am fortunate to own homes in two of the most beautiful parts of California, San Francisco and Lake Tahoe.
Come for an extended visit!
