Comfy queen size bed is perfect for a couple.
The private bathroom is next door with a great shower and separate bath.
The room has panoramic views of downtown.
The house is a charming Victorian located in Dolores Heights, between Noe Valley and the Castro. Dolores Park is just down the hill. You can easily walk to public transportation and to shops and restaurants in the Castro and on 24th St. The neighborhood is quiet but the lively Castro district is within easy walking distance. Also, the trendy Valencia St corridor and the Mission district are just a 15 minute walk down the hill.
There is easy parking on Liberty St and Rayburn St.
I have 1 elderly cat.
Help yourself to my homemade muesli, bread, fruit, yoghurt, tea and coffee.
You are welcome to use the kitchen but just please be respectful of the fact we use the kitchen too. We enjoy chatting and hanging out but also like our space and appreciate guests that are out and about during the day.

Lots of restaurants nearby and lively neighbourhoods. Dolores Park.
24 bus, KLM Muni at Castro Stn and J Church at the corner of the park.
Other Things to Note
There might be a guest in the studio below the kitchen so just keep the noise down and take shoes off in the house.
no smoking please
keep the bedroom door closed to keep the cat out.
Great room, steep access = fantastic views, would definitely stay there again. thanks claire.
The room is spacious and clean, and the view is amazing. The view also implies a hike to the top of the hill, which is always a good workout. Claire and Gary are very gentle and easy going. Their cat, Lucy, is a sweetheart who loves to cuddle. Lucy also respected our personal space and never invaded the room. They have a gorgeous kitchen with everything you need for cooking and baking. The neighborhood is also clean, quiet, and one of the safest in the city. I'd recommend this place to anyone coming to SF.
We enjoyed staying at Claire's place this weekend! She and her husband were very easy going and welcoming! I liked the neighborhood, too! So nice to explore non-touristy areas in SF! We will be back!
Claire has a lovely place nearby Castro. The moment I stepped in her place I feel welcomed and warmed. It is clean, tidy, and cosy. On top of that, the room is quiet with a very good view! As the place is located near to hilltop so some some walking uphill is necessary, which I personally found fun and good exercise for a tourist who doesn't have chance to hit gym! Having said that, strongly suggest to take a cab if you have some luggage. Taxi fare is reasonable in SF.
Great light, view and pleasant room. Everything you need is there, and Claire & Gary will make you stay pleasant. The breakfasts are great too!
Make sure you are in a healthy condition as the house is on top of a hill and be ready to climb up there from the nearest metro.
I was in the city for 3 weeks and loved staying with Claire and Gary. They are very hospitable and mindful of other roomies space. Washer and dryer are very convenient as the house is at the top of a hill. I enjoyed the beautiful kitchen every morning while drinking coffee. Plenty of clean linens and towels available and nice large bathroom made my stay worth it. Bike storage a major plus. I will certainly stay here again.
Une chambre magnifique, avec une vue incroyable sur toute la ville! Claire et Gary sont des personnes tres acceuillantes, nous avons adoré discuter avec eux. Le petit dejeuner est en plus délicieux!
