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.
This Mission Terrace location is excellent, if you like a quiet place 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. 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.
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.
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.
KEYS: $50 charge for lost keys.
QUIET HOURS: Chill out after 10:00pm until 8:00 am, rooftop access only on roof over your bedroom.
KITCHEN: limited kitchen privileges: feel free to make breakfast (or share ours) or use the fridge for a few items, you can also use our dishes and utensils and microwave to reheat. More elaborate meal prep requires negotiation.
DOGS: a small, well-behaved dog is negotiable with extra deposit of $100. We have dog blankets, but you might want to bring your own dog bedding. We also have bowls and mat for small dog.
CHILDREN: If your child is well-behaved and not a toddler, there should be no problem. We have a fold out sleeping mat and extra linens. Please be aware that the house is not childproofed.
A complete house rules and guide to the room and area is available in your room. You can find instructions for the washer and dryer, wifi, etc. in this guide.
It was a good location. The room and bathroom were clean. Ear plugs were provided if you had issues with the public transit that goes by. They were knowledgable about the city and provided info on websites to save money for local events. They were respectful of our privacy. We were provided some space in the fridge to keep some food at the house so we didn't have to eat out all the time. Having the park nearby was great for my wife since she could go and read there while I worked downtown. The rooftop deck had a good view of the city and was a nice place to catch some sun a bit more privately.
I had a wonderful experience. The room was great- sunny, welcoming and close to everything. Brigette is very friendly and helpful!
We were made to feel very welcome in this home. Wonderful and generous hosts happy to share their knowledge about San Francisco. The pictures truly depict your room. Both the bedroom and bathroom were clean and the bed comfortable. Public transport on the j church is just on the street below, about a 2minute walk, very handy. Everything was supplied which was useful. Definitely will stay here again if we return to San Francisco.
Brigitte and Jose were truly the most amazing host. The room was clean and comfortable and complete with movies and books to enhance your San Francisco experience. They know and love the city and easily shared their information. I hope to return soon with Carol.
Staying at Brigitte's and Jose's place made my trip to San Francisco a memorable experience. They were both so nice and kind and I felt like coming home every day. The advices what to do in San Francisco were perfect and without staying at their place I probably would have missed many experiences. Although talking and drinking coffee in the morning was one of my favourite things. We had so many enjoyable conversations.
The place is not in the heart of the city, but the bart and the muni are close and bring you in a few minutes to downtown. The room was clean and really lovely, like you can see at the pictures. I can really recommend a stay at Brigittes place.
Unsere erste Buchung mit airbnb: wunderschönes Zimmer, Dachterrasse mit tollem Ausblick auf die Stadt, sehr gute Anbindung an die Innenstadt mit öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln und sehr freundliche und hilfsbereite Gastgeber.
This was our very first airbnb stay and Brigitte and Jose were the perfect hosts to introduce us to the airbnb experience. Everything about their home was as described, from the sunny and airy bedroom to the private bathroom with views of the hills of S.F. from the shower. Their restaurant suggestions were terrific and the family run coffee shop on the first floor was great for morning coffee and pastries, including one of the best bread puddings we ever had. Although we had a rental car, hopping on the streetcar across the street from their home was more convenient than driving downtown and free street parking is available in this neighborhood.
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.
