About this listing
The room we offer is in our Queen Ann Victorian house in SF. We aim to give temporary travelers an experience into a family that has been living in SF for over 30 years. Our fun and loving home is full of positive energy and plants, great view, front yard garden, plum tree (in season during the summer), and porch great for BBQ'ing. We love our environment and will likely teach you a thing or two about caring for it!
The room accommodates one person comfortably, and has closet space and clothing drawers. The shared space in our home include the bathroom, living room, kitchen, porch, and garden. Our family comprises of Bettina, José, Vishnu, and Ganesha (however Ganesha currently lives in Berlin).
Garden: There is a café table and a front staircase that is best enjoyed when sunny! We also have a vegetable garden!
Kitchen: you will get your own fridge shelf and a cabinet for dry food. Most things in the kitchen you can use, however if you're unsure, just ask!
Living room: books and more books in German and English!
Upstairs and Temporary Bed-room: Out of our own privacy we have made these parts of the house off limits unless invited.
Interaction with guests
Our family is happy to give recommendations to all our guests! When we're not busy we're very happy to hang out with you and show you around the city.
Other things to note
My mom just discovered this easy and beautiful bike ride to downtown, Mission Bay, or other places in the city. She loves it and enjoys every part of the ride. It takes her 30 minutes from our house to Embarcadero @ Market.
If you have a car, the location is ideal. Within minutes, you will be on Highway 101 or 280 north or south. It takes 20 minutes by car to get downtown, and 20 minutes to the beach at Fort Funston.
The newly developing third street area is 10 minutes walking distance It is changing it's face by the minute and you will find the little known secrets of San Francisco. Truely worth discovering.
There is all day free street parking available in our neighborhood. Rare in San Francisco.
We do have two dogs that live in the house so our guests MUST be dog lover(s)! Because we do already have two dogs living in the house, we do not allow our guests with pets, just keeps things less complicated!

We are a family living in our small San Francisco Victorian-styled house. Here is some
Hi, I'm Vishnu! I am 23 years old, working as a merchandiser and plant specialist at a modern plant nursery (Flora Grubb Gardens -- in our neighborhood!!). I am great for giving tips on some of SF's top local spots and things in our neighborhood or closeby.
Hello, my name is Ganesha. I am 26 years old and graduated from CCA with a BFA in graphic design. At the moment, I am exploring freelance in Berlin and visit home in SF two or three times a year. I love fun activities such as hiking and clubbing. If you catch me at home I can give great advice on the music scene in SF.
Hello! I'm Bettina, Ganesha and Vishnu's mom. I moved to San Francisco from Germany in the 90's, and later started my own physical therapy practice downtown. On weekends I enjoy hiking with Tara (our vizsla), hoola-hooping, or 5rhythms dancing. I also give great advice on SF and local things to do.
We look forward to hearing from all possible guests and hosts. Please feel free to ask us questions! :-)
Vishnu, Ganesha, & Bettina
