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. 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 the wifi will connect you to online entertainment or you can use our netflix. 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.
If walking from BART up Bosworth St, there's a hill to walk 1/2 way up the block and about 28 stairs to the front door. I don't find it a problem but 1 guest mentioned the hill so thought I'd include it in case there may be mobility issues for anyone.
Interaction with Guests
Someone will meet you (either me or my husband Don depending on our schedules) so we can show you around and give you the key.
We're available during your stay but sensitive to your need for space if desired and have our own private space upstairs.
*No smoking in the house
*Please open the window after showering as there is no fan in the bathroom
*Please carry your bag up the last set of stairs.They are wood and showing some damage from heavy luggage. We're happy to carry them up for you-call my cell when you arrive. The 1st set of concrete steps are fine to use your roller luggage on.
*Use the black metal " coat tree" in the corner at the end of the bed or the hooks on the door for wet towels-please don't leave on the furniture or the floor. You may also leave in the bathroom if you'd like-we'll leave a towel hook available for you. Thanks!
Beth and Don are great! They were very accommodating and let me check-in a bit early. The room looks exactly as it does in the pictures and everything was very clean. Great location with BART only two blocks away. I will definitely stay here again when I have the chance.
Beth’s home was clean and perfectly located! She and her family were very welcoming and helpful during my stay.
Beth's and Don's place is very nice, close to the Glen Park BART Train station and easy to get to. It's also just a few stops from downtown.
Beth is a great host, very committed, and very helpful. The room is not big, but has everything you need, the bed comfortable. And they've got good coffee.
Resume: I felt very welcome at Beth's and Don's - a very recommendable place to stay.
I felt like home! Beth and Don are just wonderful!
Their nice house is perfect located close to BART in a very nice neighbourhood. As a previous guest said, stop your search right here, because this is the place!
I simply loved it!
Beth is terrific. I really dig her and her place is really perfect. They are very open to your schedule, yet very present if you need any help or anything. In fact, I come to SF every week and stay with them as often as I can. Very close to the BART - you can walk there even if you are from SoCAL and are used to driving for distances over a quarter block. Cant; recommend highly enough even though that means you'll probably book this place out from under me.
Exactly as promised, exactly what I needed! Superb for the solo traveler. Beth and her husband are very inviting and generous, and the proximity of their house to the BART station is a big, big, plus. I would definitely stay in this peaceful room again.

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.
