Stay in our comfortable home just 2 blocks to BART (the San Francisco subway system), in quaint Glen Park. It's a village type neighborhood with restaurants, cafes, an upscale grocery store (Canyon Market) and a beautiful natural park with trails called Glen Canyon Park. Downtown is only a 15 min BART ride away. Our home is a 1908 Victorian cottage with vintage charm yet modern kitchen and bath. The room is small but comfortable with stylish furnishings, including a desk. down comforter and pillows and a foam topper for a relaxing nights sleep. Just steps to the (shared) bathroom. You'll have your own linens and are welcomed to use our shampoo/conditioner. We have 2 dogs so if you are allergic or don't like dogs, this wouldn't be the best place for you. They tend to bark when we come home but settle down pretty quickly. You're welcomed to use the kitchen and enjoy our walk out yard-from the kitchen. Feel free to use our washer and dryer if you'd like.. We respect your privacy and have our own space upstairs. Our daughter is in college so we'd love to share our space with others.
Internet connection is easy with wifi. There's no TV in the room but you're welcomed to watch ours in the living room. The house has an open floor plan, fully detached from the neighbors so there are windows on all 4 sides offering light and quiet.
Easy street parking with restrictions. Street cleaning on alternate weeks, 2 and 4 hour limits on alternate sides Monday-Friday. The 44 bus is at the corner that takes you across town and to Golden Gate Park, the J Church streetcar is 2 blocks and goes downtown. It's scenic and fun (goes right next to Dolores Park) but takes a lot longer to get downtown than BART. If driving and you need to go to Silicon Valley or the east bay the 280 freeway is 2 blocks away.
1 Bart stop to San Francisco City College
1 Bart to to 24th St in The Mission
3 stops to the Civic Center and 4 stops to downtown
Note: The street view is not our street. Our's has very charming Victorian cottages, similar to the front view of our house.
Beth and Don are wonderful hosts! They were very helpful. I wish I could have gotten to visit more but I was out seeing San Francisco. Their daughter was also super helpful and friendly and have me delicious pastry from a great bakery which was so sweet. The room is cozy and quiet, and the bed is extremely comfortable. Their house is located in a lovely neighborhood. It's very accessible and close to the Bart. I had a great time and if I come to San Francisco again solo I would definitely want to stay again!
I've stayed in Beth's room for one whole month before my boyfriend came to SF and had a great time there. The room is very clean, cozy and comfy! Beth, Don and Kristina were amazing hosts, very respectful, kind and available whenever I needed. And they also were very discreet and respectful to my privacy. Beth's house is two blocks far from Bart, and there are grocery stores, cafes/restaurants, and a supermarket nearby. I definitely recommend this airbnb, and I hope to keep in touch with this lovely family!
Beth and Don are wonderful hosts! This was my first airbnb experience and I was a bit nervous traveling alone; however, they instantly made me feel welcomed and comfortable. Their dogs are friendly and provide good company! The room is cozy and quiet, and the bed is extremely comfortable. Their house is located in a lovely, quaint neighborhood. It's very accessible and close to the Bart if you want to travel downtown; however, be sure to wander the streets in Glen Park as this friendly neighborhood has some charming spots and views. I had such a memorable time visiting SF and getting to know Beth and Don!
Staying with Beth, Don and Kristina was a great experience. They made me feel very integrated and welcome to San Francisco from the first day on. I did not only stay in their room but held a lot of conversations with them.
Their openness and friendlinesshas helped me very well to prepare for a half year stay in San Francisco!
I am looking forward to spending some more time with the Kershaw's and their two dogs Misha and Utchy (hopefully the spelling is correct...) at the end of my stay in this wonderful city.
Thank you for having me! :)
I felt like home from the very first beginning!! Beth, Don, Kristina and their lovely dogs Misha and Gucci are amazing hosts. It was more like visiting friends! The house is gorgeous and the room is cozy and pretty. I love every detail of the interior decoration!! And also the beautiful backyard. I had my coffee outside and caught some sun - nice ;). I can HIGHLY recommend this wonderful place!!
I absolutely loved staying with Beth and her family! It was my first Airbnb experience and it was just perfect. Exactly what I was after for my stay in San Fran.
The room was very clean and comfortable and the house is just 2 streets away from the BART. Soooo easy to get around the city from here. Beth even lend me a clipper card to get about and there were guide books and maps to help me plan my stay.
It was like staying with family friends.
I couldn't recommend enough!
Beth's place was the all the best that you can expect from airbnb. A comfy clean bed, friendly hosts, nice little touches like fruit and snacks in the room, and helpful tips on seeing the city. Transportation to downtown SF and the airport was so quick and easy with bart.
Highly recommend staying here.
Beth and Don were gracious hosts - from trading stories on SF, their work in the area, and basics of tourist things to see/do/getting-around in SF. They have a very neat apt, and adorable dogs to top that. This is apt is the real deal!
Beth and Don were extremely generous and hospitable during my stay. Their house was a peaceful refuge for me during my weekend in San Francisco, and I couldn't have asked for kinder hosts.
I have a really great time staying at Beth's home. It's quite pity that I did meet Beth, anyhow, she'd arranged the house for my comfortably. Her daughter was so welcome me.
The house location is so convenience to get to downtown SF as well as located in a very good neighbor.
I'd really recommend this host.
