The Space

In a 1830’s farmhouse high in the hills of Glen Canyon Park:
A Large sunlit bedroom with bay windows and a view of San Francisco and the bay laid out beneath you.
It is close to everything. Less than ten minutes from downtown San Francisco and the Financial District by BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit - the underground), bus, and car. Easy on street parking, two blocks from public transportation, three blocks from all freeways.
A wonderful secluded getaway with all the amenities. Wireless internet and cable television. Updated granite kitchen and bath. Completely surrounded by colorful well tended gardens that are easily accessible. Plenty of places to sit and eat or read or meditate. In the middle of the staccato pace of San Francisco, here is a quiet retreat to rest and recuperate. Just a quick walk from world-class eateries, library, grocery stores, cafes, bakeries, and small shops. One of San Francisco's oldest neighborhoods full of the flavors that make up the San Francisco Experience.
Your host Johannes, completes the serenity of this getaway with his calm old-world European sensibilities and in depth knowledge of San Francisco.

  • Johannes was an outstanding host. He provided helpful information about what to see and how to navigate the transit system in San Francisco as, well as providing plenty of good food for our breakfasts and helping us with our luggage. We were very pleased with the accommodations. The description was accurate. We found the room very comfortable and it was nice to have access to the kitchen and other rooms. We really enjoyed the beautiful and well tended gardens in the yard. The neighborhood is quiet and safe. We could see the 4th of July fireworks downtown, just by looking out the window of our room. I would definitely stay here again on future trips to San Francisco and recommend this place to friends visiting the area.

  • Johannes is very helpful, has much to tell about SF, lives in a charming house and garden in a small nice neighbourhood with good connection to public transport (BART train) and last but not least offers a fine breakfast ...in a nutshell: the perfect place to stay in SF.

  • We enjoyed our stay at Johannes' a lot. He is a very friendly host and the facilities of his home were very nice. Also, Johannes took well care of us with breakfast according to our personal preferences. He was very helpful with tips about what to see and how to get there. The area is not in the city center, which was all fine with us. There are busses and subway and trams nearby, and once you get the overview it is easy to make your way in most directions. The neighborhood is easily accessible by car and was very nice and the community center had nice restaurants and a wonderful grocery shop. Johannes has a very nice garden with plants we were not accustomed to, with wonderful contrasting colors.

  • Der Aufenthalt bei Johannes war wunderbar. Johannes selber war der perfekte Gastgeber und sein Haus war sehr gemütlich und schön. Alles war tip top gepflegt und sehr sauber. Wir haben uns von der ersten Minute an wohl und heimisch gefühlt. Johannes hatte ganz viele tolle Tipps parat und hat uns bei unserem kurzen Aufenthalt geholfen,so viel wie möglich von San Francisco zu sehen. Wir würden sofort wieder bei ihm nächtigen,sollten wir nochmal einen solchen Trip machen. Der Stadtteil in dem er lebt ist wunderbar. Viele kleine Läden und wunderbare Restaurants. Man ist sehr schnell und unkompliziert mitten in der City egal ob mit Bus oder Bahn. Wir sind sehr happy Johannes als Host gehabt zu haben.

  • Johannes probably doesn't need any more positive feedbacks, but we'll still give our own! The place is awesome... the room, the location itself, the garden, everything. And you really do feel like home when staying there. Johannes himself is an adorable, very interesting person. He knows a lot and we are very grateful that we could stay in his cozy place. Thank you very, very much!

  • Overall- it was just great!
    Johannes is an amazing host who made us feel "at home" within seconds.
    If you have the chance to book this accomodation: just do it.. :-)

    The house and the garden is really beautiful and you can reach downtown via bus or subway very fast. Johannes gave us great recommodation for restaurants and "where to stroll around" to explore the city.

    Thank you again for the amazing time!

  • Johannes was an ideal host. He was very friendly and knowledgeable of the city and even rode the bus with us to a central location to help us get a feel for the bus system. His place is in a great neighborhood and our experience staying here was perfect. If we come back to San Francisco, would definitely try to stay with him again. -Alex and Justina

  • Johannes was the perfect host. Staying with him was without a doubt one of our best b & b experience thus far. On the night we checked in, he helped us with our luggage despite us arriving late at night. The next morning, we were greeted with a wholesome breakfast he had prepared, which included fresh fruits, bread, cereal, and yoghurt. He went the extra mile to make our stay in San Francisco a fruitful and memorable one, giving us comprehensive and useful info about the city and interesting insights from the viewpoint of a local. He was sincere, witty, and generous, and we enjoyed our exchanges. His house is gorgeous and nicely furnished, surrounded by a beautiful garden, and the bedroom is spacious and comfortable. Highly recommended!
