The apartment is a flat in a 100 year old Victorian home with some old world touches and many modern conveniences. Nestled between the Castro District and Haight-Ashbury District you are in convenient walking distance to two of San Francisco's great neighborhoods and close to public transportation. This is a quiet oasis from the hustle and bustle of San Francisco.
Eat breakfast at the dining table overlooking the eastern side of San Francisco with views of Downtown, the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge and the east bay.
This room has a private half bath, fireplace and the same view, along with a full queen bed which can be tucked away leaving a huge space to enjoy.
Wake up in the morning and see San Francisco out your window, take a shower in the vintage claw-foot tub, make yourself a hot cup of coffee or tea using the Keurig Single Serve coffee brewing machine--we have a variety of coffees, teas, and some other choices.
If you're needing a bit of downtime, enjoy a bit of television in the common living room. Kick back on the Lay-Z-Boy recliner or just have a glass of wine to wind down.
The house is ideal for people looking for a quiet oasis from the city. It's a non-smoking house, but you can enjoy a smoke on the balcony overlooking the city.
Nearby street parking is usually available, or we're about a 10 block walk to the Castro Muni Metro Subway stop (there are other buses nearby to take you just about anywhere you wish to go)
Guests have access to the kitchen and balcony to cook/eat and enjoy the view of san Francisco with morning coffee or evening tea/wine/cocktail if desired.
the main bathroom is shared along with the kitchen and deck.
Interaction with Guests
I tend to leave it to the guests to decide. If people are chatty I am very interactive but if they prefer be left alone, that works for me as well.
I do live here and I occasionally work from home so I'm around a bit, usually evenings and weekends.

There are several Haight street buses a couple blocks away.
N-Judah MUNI stop is 3 blocks downhill.
Castro street muni station is about 8 blocks away.
I also recommend lyft or uber over taxi cabs if you need to get somewhere in a hurry.
The homeowners association requests quiet after 10pm. This doesn't mean you must tip toe, but please be considerate of others in the building.
This is a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and just relax after a day running around town or going out to many of the local bars and restaurants nearby.
Reminder: this is a non-smoking house, but you're welcome to smoke outside on the deck.
Everything was as expected and more. Keith was great and so was the house. I sent a video of the views to everyone in my contacts because it is that amazing.
I had a great stay at Keith's apartment. It's a beautiful room with expansive views of the city and an extremely comfortable bed. Keith gave us a very warm welcome and provided lots of insightful tips on local restaurants and entertainment options. The kitchen is also fully stocked with free breakfast, tea, and coffee, and towel and linen replacements are available. Overall a great experience. I'll be sure to come back.
What an AWESOME host! I feel like I have new friends in the city and a home away from home :) Thank you so much Keith and Felix and JP and Amber and Aimee!
"Hello, welcome. Would you like a drink?" was the first thing that was said to me after walking through the door of this beautiful SF style home. I was greeted by the host and shown my room. The house was filled with other Airbnb stayers (whatever we Airbnb users are called) who were all friendly as I walked down the hall way. This room is truly stunning. I arrived at sunset and the windows and plants really spoiled me with the first view I saw inside the place I would be staying for the night. I unpacked, changed for the night, and walked out with a drink ready for me by the host. The home is filled with all the amenities, even cables in the room for all sorts of cell phones to charge. The balcony gave an open and exquisite view of the city. All the food and drink for breakfast were provided. All the bathroom amenities were there. I simply felt at home and comfortable, even being surrounded by 8 people whom I never met before this moment. I had a lot of fun for the time I was in this house. These types of stays really help prove why Airbnb is the new thing over staying in a hotel. I would never receive the service I did for the money I paid from a hotel. The host took the time to write a 9 page (yea, 9 page!) intro to the city. This intro included everything I needed to know about close by coffee shops to grocery stores and banks. Even websites for finding fun things to do around SF for cheap. He really outdid himself on being a host. I will most definitely recommend this place to anyone, and will continue to use Airbnb for all my travel wants. Thank you again Mr. Freedman for making my night in SF fantastic.
I booked Keith's bedroom as I was driving to San Francisco, and was inside of the bedroom you see online in less than 3 hours. The photographs cannot do the place justice - at all. I chose this place because I needed somewhere to "heal", but I also needed to stay close to home. There's something about the fact that this place is at the top of Buena Vista Hill, coupled with the usual "nightcap" of taking in the views from the back patio, that brings you a sense of accomplishment regardless of how your day went. Although I wasn't on vacation, I do know the only place I'd recommend to someone planning a few nights in this city is Keith's. Thank you Keith for helping me along in the time I've spent in your home. I am forever grateful.
