The space

We've been interviewed by airbnb and Wired Magazine for being highly rated hosts.

This is a large private room with a single bed (38" x 74.5" / 96 x 189 cm) that holds ONE person ONLY in our home. We live here. It has a huge sunny window and is in the upstairs flat. The livingroom is just on the other side of the sliding doors, so you can open them up and feel like you have a suite. The bathroom is shared. The house is filled with colorful international artwork and photos, and if you ask, there are many stories behind them all. Your room has a spacious closet that is more than ample to store your things. There is a garden to sit in which is surrounded by colorful trees and visited by hummingbirds. You're welcome to use the large modern kitchen if you want to cook. We have wifi, friendly neighbors and a sweet, friendly 12 year old dog (English Setter). This has been home to 37 foreign exchange students, dozens of international travelers and many techies from famous companies.

Great area with wonderful weather, interesting shops, farmer's market, places of worship, mostly family owned vs. chain shops, local events and places to hang out. Lots of scenic walks if you want to explore the famous painted Victorians, and beautiful Dolores Park, with a gorgeous view of the city, is 4 blocks away. There are many fantastic cafes, great coffee spots and restaurants of numerous ethnicities, including at least 2 restaurants on the SF Top 100 List, within a short walk.

We're centrally located and just a few steps to public transportation. The 24th & Mission BART station is less than a 10 minute walk, and downtown is 20 minutes away by the train that stops across the street. SOMA is also 15 minutes by train. The Castro is a 10 minute walk. UCSF campuses are about 20 minutes away. The "tech" buses that go to several well-known Silicon Valley companies stops nearby. The very coolest part of the Mission District is a 10-15 minute walk. This is a safe neighborhood so you can go for walks at night. Whole Foods, a high end organic grocery with take-out food, is less than a 5 minute walk. All stores in this area are open on Sunday and all have relatively late hours.

The entire neighborhood is culturally diverse, gay friendly, full of families, happy dogs, creative type professionals and a welcoming atmosphere.

Your host is a world traveler and loves to share stories. You will feel immediately welcome.

Marla and her place are exceptional. The room is actually nicer than pictured, I thought, and the whole place is immaculate, wonderfully artful and homey, very comfortable. Marla is responsive and communicative, making her guests feel welcome and at ease. She gave me great advice…

Marla is a very gracious host, and has a lovely home (and a lovely dog!). The room was very clean, the bed was comfortable, Marla took care of everything, she even stayed up till 12.30 am to receive me. Would definitely stay here again the next time I'm in SF!

Had an amazing time staying with Marla! Her and her puppy are extremely friendly, and she has lots of great suggestions on things to do while in the area. Her home was beautiful and very comfortable. Will definitely try and stay here again next time I am in town.
