What better way to experience San Francisco than staying in an authentic and renovated 1890 Victorian (one of those tourists come here to gaze at), in a central location yet on a safe, quiet and charming street, with attractions, food, shopping and public transportation within walking distance? Furthermore, the luxury of 3 bedrooms and two baths at this price point is very rare in a top rated location in town. While our street is quiet, it's one block from Haight. Lots of fun shopping, cafes and restaurants within short walking distance. The house built as a duplex, the flat offered is the whole first floor. Located between two popular city parks, Buena Vista Park and Duboce Park. High ceilings, wood floors, period moldings. Bathrooms and kitchen remodeled providing the best of the old and new. The best San Francisco experience!

Lower unit does NOT mean street level... twenty-two steps from street to the entrance of our single level flat, allowing for great privacy.
*Please note: the house is ideal for 2 couples and up to three children, or a maximum of 3 couples (6 adults and no children). The sitting/TV room sits 4 adults comfortably, chairs and cushions can be moved to accommodate more seating.
Nothing is off limits, guests have the whole space to use as they wish. While family gatherings are fine, no parties allowed. I love to host and meet my guests so will welcome you and guide you as needed, but you will have the privacy of the house to yourselves.
Interaction with Guests
To make my whole house available to guests, I often stay with my daughter's family in the neighborhood, or leave town periodically. When out of town, I communicate extensively via text or email and am always available by phone.
The neighborhood is simply beautiful, with restored late 1800/early 1900's Victorians all around. Buena Vista Park is just a couple of blocks up the hill surrounded by amazing archictectural gems and breathtaking views of the city and the bay. Duboce Park a block away is also surrounded by such quaint beautiful houses that they are on the tour bus route (those buses avoid our block because of our short hill, keeping our section of our street a quiet secret!) Yet with Haight St and Divisadero just a block away, public transportation, grocery stores, cafes and restaurants abound within a short walk. More details about my favorite spots in the neighborhood are emailed to all my guests.
One block to MUNI (city) buses, N-Judah MUNI (metro) line, short walk to Haight Ashbury, Alamo Square, the Castro, Divisadero, Duboce Triangle and Lower Haight restaurants and cafes. Short bus or easy 20min walk to Golden Gate Park, the Mission. Quick MUNI (metro train) to Downtown, Embarcadero, Fisherman's Wharf, Union Square, Chinatown… Make sure to download and use the Uber and Lyft apps, and experience the sharing economy at it's best.
