An easy walk to Glen Park BART, neighborhood stores, restaurants and library. If you love the City, and want to explore one of San Francisco's charming neighborhoods, this (email hidden) to stay. Only steps from the MUNI J-Church line, you can take the scenic route into downtown (incredible view of City from Dolores Park), or hop on BART for a quick ride downtown.

The bedroom is a calming off-white and green with shabby-chic style bedroom furniture. The room has a private entrance and rooftop access. Exclusive use of full guest bathroom (with great view of Excelsior hill while you are showering).

OTHER AMENITIES: kitchen with dishwasher, microwave and refrigerator space for your "doggie" bags. Washer & Dryer (website hidden) available by arrangement.

We also have a washer & dryer if you wish to use it. Guests have access to all common areas including roof and kitchen. We have at least one Clipper Card ((website hidden)) available for guest use

Interaction with Guests

We have really liked all the guests that have stayed with us through Airbnb. Some have a lot of questions about the City, others are more familiar. We respect guests' privacy, but if our guests want to talk, we'd love to answer any questions and find out about where they live. My husband and I have an extensive knowledge of the Bay Area and we are happy to give travel advice and tips, if asked. One or both of us will most likely be present when guests arrive. We may also be available to pick guests up from Glen Park or Balboa BART stations, just ask us.

The Neighborhood

This Mission Terrace location is excellent, if you (email hidden) to retreat to after business/partying/fun/sightseeing in the City. In a few minutes, you will be away from the hubbub, in front of the fireplace and recounting your adventures over a glass of wine. There is a coffee shop on the ground floor, a dry cleaners across the street and a corner store nearby. A little farther walk is the Glen Park Village area with restaurants, grocery store, library, etc. Most homes in the area were built in the 1920's and 30s and there is a distinct Moderne and Spanish Revival flair in the architecture. The historic "F" line trolleys gracefully roll through San Jose Avenue on their way to the Castro District. We live on the top floor of a 10 unit building, and there is a great view from the guest room and even the guest bathroom. There are three flights of stairs and no elevators. As a reminder, a street car does go by outside, but only one of every 20 guests has a problem with the noise. We do have earplugs available for your use.

Getting around

FROM/TO SFO AIRPORT: Twenty minutes from SFO by car and 25 minutes by BART. Shuttles cost about $25 to $30. You can also use LYFT, if you have the app. With notice, we can pick you up from Glen Park or Balboa BART when you arrive and drop you off after checking out.

TRANSPORTATION:
PUBLIC: The best way to engage the city is to use public transportation. The historic "F" trolleys come right by our home along with the J-Church Muni Metro and the stop is right on the corner, the fare is $2 and good for 90 minutes on any MUNI bus or metro. As mentioned, the Glen Park BART station is about an 8 minute walk from your room and, within the City boundaries, costs $1.85. We have an extra clipper card that you can use, load it up at the nearest BART or Muni Station. A Clipper Card is very convenient and you will not need to fumble with change and transfers.
AUTO: There is street parking available, subject to street cleaning on Wednesdays and Fridays (and church on Saturday & Sunday). Park on the street for free and take MUNI!

Other Things to Note

Let us know if you prefer coffee, tea or juice in AM and it will be set out on dining room table before you arise.

OTHER: We are open to negotiating other issues that we have not yet considered. No harm in inquiring!

AS IF YOU DIDN'T KNOW: In terms of clothing, bring layers, we only have an average of 5 hot days per year (anything over 80°F), but most days are mild with cool mornings and evenings. There is some general city noise because, well, we live in a city. You might hear the woosh of the BART or the street car passing by. Mission Terrace, however, is definitely one of the quieter neighborhoods in San Francisco.

  • What a fantastic experience we had staying with Brigitte and Jose! They were perfect hosts who went beyond expectations to make our stay memorable. Extra touches like picking us up from the railway station, a welcome wine and nibbles and even driving us to see the lights of San Francisco enhanced our experience. The room was exactly as pictured, the bed very comfortable and all amenities spotlessly clean. Transport was easily accessible, right outside the door and they gave expert advice on what to see and do in San Francisco. We felt like we had made new friends and thoroughly recommend them as hosts. Our grateful thanks to you for a wonderful and memorable visit.

  • We stayed with Brigitte for three nights and had a great experience. The whole apartment was very clean and pleasant, and our room and bathroom were fully stocked with clean towels/sheets and other toiletries. Brigitte was very friendly and gave us great recommendations for places to visit in San Francisco and the surrounding area. The apartment was across the street from a muni stop and getting into downtown was very easy. There was also a very nice cafe downstairs, the owner was extremely friendly and the coffee/espresso was tasty. We had trouble sleeping our first night because of street noise, but the next morning realized we had left the windows open. After a full day of walking around the city it didn't bother us at all, and Brigitte has earplugs for any light sleepers. All-in-all a great experience, would definitely go back again.

  • Brigitte and José were perfect hosts! Their house was beautiful and clean, and we had an amazing view of San Francisco from the bedroom, bathroom and rooftop. Brigitte had coffee ready for us in the morning and we had a great time everyday sharing breakfast with her and her husband. She also gave us many advices during our stay (good restaurants, things to see...). I absolutely recommend this place! We are going to miss them :)

  • Brigitte's home was beautiful, and the room is as pictured. The bed was extremely comfortable! I loved that the room had a rooftop with an amazing view. Her house was located in a less busy area than downtown which was nice. They also had a great liquor store across they street which was super useful. They had really good pizza so give it a try! The room came along with maps and lots of brochures. Brigitte and her husband were very welcoming and had many great suggestions. They were extremely nice so don't hesitate to ask them for help around town. Overall, we had a great stay!

  • Brigitte and Jose's place was wonderful and truly welcoming. It was exactly what was in the picture and better. The view at the rooftop was amazing as well. Their knowledge and eagerness to answer our questions about the city was very helpful too. Our morning chats over fresh fruits and coffee were part of our unforgettable experience. Wish we had more days to spend and explore SF.

  • Brigitte and José are very friendly and accommodating hosts who provide a lot of maps and books about the city. The room is large and airy and the bed is very comfortable. We wanted for nothing. There is a great coffee shop at the street-level of their building and a convenience store across the street. It was a little noisy the first night with the streetcar going by but we quickly got used to that and they are located in a quiet area. Also, black-out blinds would be helpful with the sun coming through in the morning. It was nice to have soap, lotions and shampoo all provided for our use in their beautiful bathroom.
    There is a major MUNI line one block away and 2 BART stations walkable distances.
    We would definitively recommend them and stay there again.

About
I love San Francisco so much that I prefer to stay at home for vacations! However, my husband loves to travel and, thanks to him, I've seen the world. But, San Francisco still rates as my number 1 destination ; ) Not necessarily in this order, If I was stranded on a deserted island without friends and family, It would be a little more comfortable if I had good coffee, fresh produce, my extensive Jazz, Latin & Old-school collection, my desserts, KQED/KPFA, the latest version of Adobe's Creative Suite and all my books. Throw in some cocktails and it is starting to sound like fun. I also love home improvement projects and baking. I have lived in the Bay Area since 1978. Go Bears.
