Peaceful room in Glen Park (SF)

House - Private room · Lippard Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94131, United States

The Space

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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Beth is a great host with a clean, simple room that's so convenient to BART and lots of amenities. Beth and her husband were friendly, and gave me plenty of space and privacy to come and go. An excellent visit!

  • It was great staying at Beth's place over this past weekend. The bed was really comfortable and everything I needed was available. The house itself was nice. Both Beth and her husband were accommodating and got to know them a bit. The place is super close to the BART and the neighborhood is very quiet and safe. I would definitely stay here again the next time I am up in San Francisco. Plus the price is ridiculous good considering lodging is quite expensive in SF. :)

  • This was indeed a peaceful and comfortable spot in a hectic city. Beth and family were hospitable and accommodating. Family dogs were friendly and not bothersome at all. Location is quite convenient for walking to public transportation and to charming neighborhood shops and restaurants. All good for me. Sally

  • I had a very comfortable stay in this nice house and neighborhood. I also enjoyed our conversations and blini (Russian style pancakes). The location very close to BART was also really convenient.

  • 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!!

Don and I have lived in Glen Park for more than 20 years and in SF for more than 30. We know San Francisco very well and can help guide you with suggestions for getting around town and having fun. We're both realtors so we know neighborhoods that many long time residents have never heard of. Our schedules are flexible so we're in and out of the house and have a home office to work from but it's away from the room that's available to rent. We're low keyed, relaxed, like to BBQ and will gladly share with you if you're around. We like to meet new people, travel when we can and go to our house in Sonoma when that's not rented.We love the City but also love the quiet of our neighborhood yet know that we're only a few BART stops away from downtown or the Mission. We can walk to our great neighborhood restaurants and cafes or hike in our hidden treasure "Glen Canyon Park". We have 2 dogs but keep them out of the room that you'd be staying in. I'd love to hear about you when you're inquiring about availibility or wanting to book a time.
