The Space

Beautiful Edwardian flat in the heart of Alamo Square in San Francisco. Enjoy the Edwardian style of this house plan with its inviting facade one block off the heart of Alamo Square. Inside, key features of this flat include a master bedroom, living room/dining room, newly remodeled kitchen, laundry area, office, and sunlit front room. Other features include special ceiling treatments, 10 foot ceilings, and a private outdoor city garden/patio. For now, I am renting a one of my three bedrooms. The Air BnB room has a queen size bed.

Public transit is at the doorstep. Several gourmet grocers are within two to five blocks. NOPA, one of the more popular San Francisco restaurants is 4 blocks away. The Fillmore jazz corridor with live music starts with 3 blocks with Yoshi's, Sheba Lounge and Rassales. James Beard awarded, State Bird Provision is located in the Jazz corridor. Be sure to make your reservation two months in advance or dine after 9pm!

The painted ladies, aka postcard row located in Alamo Sq park is a block away.

During your stay you should experience everything San Francisco and that starts by living in Alamo Square.

  • This was the first time we tried airbnb and it was a great start. Amrita is a very nice and easygoing host and the flat has an excellent location. We had three wonderful days here and would truly recommend it.

  • What an amazing host! Definitely our most memorable and wonderful airbnb experience so far. Apartment is conveniently located in a peaceful neighborhood, close to the hip Divisadero Street, where you can enjoy the best coffee and toast in the morning and lively restaurant scene during nights. Dont miss the Bi-Rite creamery for your ice cream craving! The bedroom was roomy and clean and the living rooms big and bright.

    We spent the first evening in the more secluded living room next to our bedroom but for the remainder of the trip with Amrita and her guests in the living room/kitchen. We enjoyed coming back from shops and attractions in the evening and share a bottle of red wine (and some treats) and talk about San Francisco, its beauty and problems. Amrita truly loves her city and is very up to date in things to do, new cafés etc.

    More importantly, Amrita is a very caring person who goes lengths to make her guests feel comfortable. Our three year old son admired her and listened carefully when she read all the amusing children books which Amrita later passed on to him. After 5 glorious days in San Francisco we were good friends and saying good bye was hard. We will definitely be back!

  • Wonderful airbnb experience -
    We spent a week in San Francisco at Amrita’s place and enjoyed it very much.
    Everything was fine: a wonderful neighborhood, a well-furnished flat and comfortable bed, and – first of all: a great host.
    Before we arrived Amrita gave us a lot of useful informations about the flat and the surroundings.
    During our stay her advices helped us to explore this amazing city. We liked to talk to her and her friends and hope that one day we can return to SF and to Amrita.
    Thank you for your hospitality – hope to see you soon in Bavaria.
    Hugs from Kerstin and George

    The house was so quiet after you & Sebastian left. I did receive your postcard from Susanville! I hope your friends enjoyed the photobook you made for them. I hope you both come back soon. Bussi, Amrita!
