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.
Second stay at Keith's place in Buena Vista...as usual it delivers what I'm looking for: relax, stunning views, and really good coffee :) Only problem you might have: leaving.
Keith is an amazing host, highly recommended!
It was my first stay with Airbnb, and it was a perfect experience. Keith welcomed me with his warm heart and he even offered me a dinner with his friends. Although I only stayed one night, it was definitely memorable experience and it was way better than staying in hotel.
Since there are already ten million rave reviews, rather than joining them, I'll focus on the useful:
0) Yes, the experience really was as wonderful as everyone says it was. The room is so gorgeous that every person I video called from it wanted a tour. I stayed for 3 weeks and it was as smooth an experience on day 20 as on day 1.
1) Keith isn't just a thoughtful and conscientious host, he's nerdy and thorough in the best possible way. He's thought about all of the contingencies. He knows every detail about the experience and the area, from obscure hotel laws to save you money to bus routes to save you time, but he also gives you space. His experience shows, a lot.
1b) As someone with a lot of unpredictable, finicky needs (millions of allergies, health issues, etc), travel is often a huge risk for me. I was able to feel really secure knowing that there was this hypercompetent, considerate person thinking about my needs, and that possible contingencies would be covered. Keith even got me a space heater :-)
2) The kitchen is amazing, very thoroughly equipped, and has tons of little useful amenities.
3) It's at the top of a very steep hill. This means a) INCREDIBLY fresh air, and b) a hardcore walk to return to every day if you're not San Franciscan and used to hills being life.
4) Plan ahead with laundry, it's not always available
5) There is no desk in the room. The dining area is good for working, and I sat on the floor with an end table for private calls. Back issues + work + privacy = not an option.
Keith was very accommodating with my late evening arrival. He provided a thorough description of multiple transportation options soon after booking the room. Keith gave me a tour of his home and showed me the view of SF. The view is spectacular any time of day. Keith went above and beyond to answer any questions I had about SF. He gave me a ride and offered to let me use his bike to tour the city. The neighborhood is very quiet and safe. Keith can keep you entertained and also let you be. This was a great experience!
Keith was a wonderful host -- super responsive and accommodating. I was really impressed with how well set up his space was for guests -- you get an access code so you can come and go as you please, really wonderful room and well-stocked kitchen. I also used Lyft to get around and never had to wait more than 5 minutes for a car to arrive.
Keith is very kind, considerate, and informative. The room is exactly like described, with a stunning view of the city. Kitchen has full supply of anything I could think of for breakfast.
