The space

It’s easy and inexpensive ($8.75) to get here from the BART station in SFO. I’ll pick you up at the 24th Street / Mission BART station and drive you home.
Your room has 2 beds: One full-size bed and a single futon to put on the floor.

If you and your traveling companion wish to sleep in separate rooms, I'll set up the futon in an adjoining bedroom for an additional $20 per night.
YOUR PRIVATE SPACE. Wake up to a spectacular view of Twin Peaks. (View photo taken from your room.) Watch fingers of fog creep this way over SF’s highest hill from the Pacific Ocean. Your view at night is a spectacle of thousands of twinkling city lights.

Just one block from, and looking toward, Mission St., your room is surprisingly quiet because the house is on a hillside and your room is perched on the top floor.

You’ll have complete privacy because you have the entire upper floor to yourself.

Your room is large (160 square feet; 15 square meters) and flooded with sunlight. It has a comfortable full-size bed. There’s a large dresser, bedside table, full-length mirror, and a desk & chair situated toward the view. Large closet. Excellent lighting for reading at the desk and in bed.

PLEASE NOTE: There is NO BATHROOM on your floor of the house. The only bathroom is on the first floor, down a steep flight of stairs. You share the bathroom with me.
THE COMMON AREAS include a tastefully furnished living room w a 50” HDTV; dining room w gas fireplace; a well equipped kitchen; and a beautiful private garden. You’ll find a large selection of cereals for breakfast. Help yourself to coffee, tea, and snacks (cookies, ice cream, etc.) any time.

Guest access

You’ll have your own set of keys. Come and go as you wish at any time.

Interaction with guests

When you arrive, I’ll pick you up at the nearby BART station. If you like, I’ll open maps and explain the city and public transportation. I’ll tell you about points of interest and fun activities that only locals know about. You’re welcome to join me for conversation in the living room. Or you can have all the privacy you like in your room upstairs.

The neighborhood

The house is on a brick cul-de-sac with very little traffic. One block up a hill from the Mission District (or “the Mission”), it’s located on the far western edge of Bernal Heights, a quiet, safe, neighborhood of single family homes.

The southern end of Valencia Street, the most gentrified and fun artery in the Mission, is one block away.

The Mission is a huge, lively, colorful, gritty area that for many decades has been largely populated by Spanish speaking immigrants. The Mission is changing, as young people who make good money in the booming tech industry move in.

The Castro, the center of gay life, is a 15-minute bus ride away.

Getting around

BART is six blocks away. It takes 10 minutes to ride downtown to cable cars, Union Square, and other major tourist destinations. Seven MUNI lines (, and J) run within 4 blocks of my home. The Castro is 15 minutes away one the #24 bus. It’s easy to get anywhere from here. Many guests use Uber. Some rent bikes for their entire stay.

Other things to note

For 2 guests who want to sleep in separate rooms, I’ll put the futon on the floor of an adjoining sunny, quiet bedroom: add $20 per night. Please inquire about how to book.

The off-season minimum stay (October 16 - April 30) is 3 nights.
The in-season minimum stay (May 1 - October 15) is 4 nights.

I can't recommend Matt highly enough. He is kind and extremely knowledgable and helpful on tips for staying in SFO. The house is a perfect place to stay and the room warm, sunny and comfortable. There is nothing more Matt could have done to make my stay more amazing.

The one at Matt's has been the best Airbnb experience I have had so far. The room is clean, cosy and very warm. The bed is very comfortable and the view from the room's window is breathtaking. Matt is a fantastic host, he went above and beyond to make me feel welcome and comfortable. He gave me tons of info about the city, landmarks and transportation. He also gave me amazing tips for a good shopping! I couldn't have asked for a better host and next time I am in San Fran he'll be definitely my first choice. Thank you Matt!

My 8 night stay with Matt in San Francisco was absolutely wonderful. Matt's house is located in Bernal Heights on a hill overlooking the city and everything was exactly as described. Besides the breathtaking view from the room, Matt is the epitome of what an Airbnb host should be like. A kind soul with a big heart, he is extremely hospitable and helpful with everything from food to sights recommendations and immediately made me feel at home in his cozy abode. He made my time in San Francisco all the richer and I wholeheartedly recommend everyone to stay with him.

Matt is an extraordinarily kind and helpful host who did his utmost to make us feel at home. He is both tactful and has a great sense of humour. Matt's beautiful home is situated in a very nice and hip area. The room is on a separate floor, spacious and with a fantastic view. We could not have wished for a better place to stay during our one week in San Francisco. Johan (19 yrs) and Susanne (47 yrs)

Matt is the very embodiment of what an Airbnb host should be: welcoming, thoughtful, and happy to meet new people. His kindness and ease of communication made this one of the most pleasant stays I've had anywhere. If that weren't enough, the room itself is perfect, with a wall of windows directly out onto Twin Peaks. And the bathroom window looks out onto the Bay Bridge! Truly the best one could ask of Airbnb.

I’m a single guy who lives alone (no pets) in a Victorian house I was lucky to buy decades ago. I earn my living as a freelance writer for nonprofit organizations. I love being an Airbnb host and sharing my insider knowledge of San Francisco.
