The Space

Enjoy a spectacular view of the highest of San Francisco's legendary hills from your bedroom. You'll have a great deal of privacy because your spacious, quiet 2-room suite (bedroom and sitting room) is on its own floor of a classic, early 20th century San Francisco cottage. If you and your travel companion want to sleep in separate rooms, your sitting room can be a second bedroom with a single futon on the floor.

Note: The staircase to your rooms is steep and narrow. Think Amsterdam!

The house is one block from the Mission District, San Francisco's hippest neighborhood, with hundreds of restaurants, cafes, bars, clubs, unique shops, and galleries. It's a 10-minute walk to the subway station, then a 10-minute train ride to all the downtown tourist destinations. Free breakfast cereal, fresh fruit, coffee, tea, and snacks.

Guest Access

You'll share the bathroom (down a steep flight of stairs from your suite) with me. You're always welcome in the dining room and living room. If you'd like to stay home and watch a movie one night, there's a 50-inch HDTV with Netflix streaming movies in the living room. Also, you'll have access to fully equipped kitchen and a beautiful garden. Strong Wi-Fi.

Interaction with Guests

I'll pick you up at the 24th Street BART (subway) station close to my home. It's easy and inexpensive to get there from SFO. There's a BART station in the airport.

If you don't know San Francisco well, I'll pull out maps and offer insider tips on what to see, including places only locals know about. I'll also explain the somewhat complex public transportation system.

Some guests want a great deal of privacy, with minimal interaction. Others enjoy sharing conversation over a cup of coffee. I'm completely comfortable either way. I take my cue from the guest.

The Neighborhood

My neighborhood, Bernal Heights, is a village on a hill above the Mission District, which is a lively, colorful, hip part of the city. My home is on a charming, quiet, residential cul-de-sac with almost no auto traffic. The neighborhood is safe. This is the warmest, sunniest part of San Francisco.

Getting Around

BART (our subway system) is 6 short blocks from the house. Then it's a 10-minute train ride to the cable cars, Union Square stores, theater district, and other major downtown destinations. My home is a 15-minute bus ride to the Castro neighborhood, the center of gay life.

It's easy and inexpensive to take BART from both the San Francisco and Oakland airports. I'll pick you up at the nearby BART station. If you have a car, know that parking can be difficult at night; but you can usually find a place within 2 or 3 blocks.

Other Things to Note

Very LGBT friendly. Everyone is welcome here.
