Our space, the suite:
The first large room can be your living room area; the second is your bedroom with two doors that close between them (see photos), creating a total quiet and private space. Both rooms are ~380 sq. feet. In the bedroom, there is: a nightstand, dresser, a closet, a writing/work table and your own private bathroom to the rear of it. In the living room/second room(two rooms +bathroom), the sofa folds out into a full size bed, big enough for one adult or two small children. There also is: a table with four chairs; a fridge; a microwave; a coffee pot; an electric kettle, toaster and basic dishes, but it is not a kitchen (no stove or kitchen sink is there). There is a large TV display with netflix (movies on demand) and Wii, but no broadcast or cable TV - as we usually just stream from our computers.
Larger groups usually choose to use the deluxe and very comfy queen size air mattress in one or other of the rooms: it fits in both rooms.
Sometimes, you may hear us walk from our living room to our bedrooms, but we always try to be respectful when we have guests, as not to be too loud, especially after 10 p.m. or before 7:15 a.m.
Other amenities include: a large beautiful backyard, with chairs and a small table as well as a 12 foot trampoline, a jacuzzi tub in the shared second bathroom on ground floor , a great way to relax after a long day of sightseeing; however, it is shared with our teenage daughter, who is not always the tidiest of people :(.
We are a family of three living upstairs with our adorable cat, who is not allowed downstairs. We also speak French and Italian in the household between the three of us. We are usually available in person or by text though for questions about the city, good restaurant and entertainment recommendations, places to go, anything you may need downstairs, or directions.
We are centrally situated in a safe, beautiful quiet residential neighborhood yet with close access to wonderful neighborhoods and anything else you could want in SF. Near so many great areas with amazing food, such as: Glen Park, Ocean St. with Whole Foods, West Portal, The Mission, Ocean Beach, the Zoo, SFO and the Peninsula. On Monterey Avenue there are plenty of Chinese restaurants and little diners too. We are also not too far from downtown. Balboa BART to main attractions is effective and fast. *Please ask us about getting downtown fast. It is best to try to to avoid rush hour if in a car and best to walk to Balboa park BART or take a bus to Glen Park BART.
Groceries/eats very near-by:
Within a couple of blocks, we have both a large organic grocery store called Wholefoods on Ocean Ave. where you can buy gorgeous organic edibles of all sorts and even stop by and have breakfast. Also there is another grocery store called Safeway very close on Monterey Ave. with a large selection of food.
Parking and Freeways:
We chose to live here partly because of the very easy access to the freeways which make it so easy to get to downtown SF, the Penisula & the South Bay. Street parking is a breeze near our house: and there is almost always lot of space for overnight parking, although directly in front of our house, you must to read the signs to avoid a ticket and curb your wheels, as there are some minor restrictions during the day, which have not caused any issues for any of our guests. Driving to Union Square, wisely avoiding rush hour only takes about 15 mins (if that). Parking in the Union Square garage is not as expensive as getting a ticket, but if you decide to use the meters, make sure they are filled! Tickets are expensive in SF!
Walking to Balboa BART is the quickest way to get to the main attractions and city center and it takes ~15 minutes to walk to Balboat BART station and in total takes 26-36 mins (depending on how fast you walk) to reach Union Square. Buses are a 2 minute walk, 5 minute walk from the Muni and then about a 15 minute brisk walk to Balboa Park BART or a 22 minute walk to Glen Park BART . Our area is very quiet and safe, yet, still close to wonderful central city sites by public transport. We usually check with '(website hidden) maps' to determine about how long things will take depending on where we are going and which method we will use and we suggest that method to you too.
Unless otherwise specified and discussed, then, check-out is between (phone number hidden) a.m.We are flexible about check in and check out times, unless we have a back to back booking. We will store your bags, if needed.
Near us is:
We are within walking distance or very short bus ride to Glen Park, a hidden gem of a neighborhood in SF where you will have a local’s feel to the city. There you can find restaurants, such as; Osha Thai, Higher Grounds cafe or Tygers for breakfast, Le Petit Laurent and Le Corneta Taqueria are also great.
Very close to our house (7-20 mins), with little wonderful shops and restaurants, such as: Fresca (wonderful Peruvian), Roti (Indian food), Goat Hill Pizza, Xiao Loong (great Chinese), Que Syrah (friendly wine bar w/tapas) and a few cool dive bars, like the Dubliner.
Also not too far and fraught with fabulous, cute shops and restaurants (like authentic Latin American food) as well as the Dolores Park. Depending on what you are in the mood for the Mission certainly has it, a great place to go explore, yet, sadly is still considered a bit less safe than our area.
Ocean Beach: About 25 minutes away from our house on the 23 bus, depending which part you are interested in. By car it’s about 15 min.
Alemany Flea Market:The Market is open every Sunday. Market Hours: 7:00am-3:00pm.
Stern Grove Festival, in the park: A big free outdoor festival of live music and art that runs the 3rd week of June to the last week of August. Can include anything from live opera & ballet to hip hop.
SF Zoo: Take bus 23 from a block away is only about a 25 min ride away from our house.
There is good access to Silicon Valley by car or by train. Other attractions on the Penisula include: Skyline Boulevard, several state and county parks, Half-Moon Bay, the Moss Beach Distillery and Rock-Away Beach.
We often take public transport or shuttle buses to SFO as it is very easy and close by.
If you are arriving by plane into SFO or OAK airports, we may be able to meet you at the Glen Park BART station and give you a ride to our house, see the Directions section once you have booked.
Many people ask if bringing a car or public transport would be easier. We tend to tell single people that if they do not mind walking, for the shortest routes to places, to use public transport. We tend to feel that people with (small) children should bring a car unless they are very used to walking and do not mind.
Please note: We have decided to go with the moderate cancellation policy. Please read up on what that is here, as we do not want anyone to have any unpleasant surprises after booking.
Thanks for reading! We look forward to seeing you soon!

The room is spacious - a comfortable bed, private bathroom, closet, desk and chair. The room looks directly out to the backyard and trampoline. The entrance is a side private one. The room has a spacious living room setup with TV, fridge and some cups. Overall, it was a good solid place with plenty of street parking. I would recommend this to future SF visitors.
Really nice, spacious, bright, clean and cozy little suite in a nice suburban SF neighborhood with good parking! Lots of great little amenities, a great little place to relax outside of the bustle of the city but still mins to The Mission, Noe Valley, Avenues, SoMa etc. And Laura was a great, friendly host!
Nice cosy home! Jeremy and Laura are great hosts who accommodated to our changing schedules. The room is big enough for my family with a small living room. The room is clean and well maintained. Free access to washer and dryer which was a plus point after some traveling in other cities. Jeremy and Laura were very responsive to our doubts and requests.
Enjoyed our stay there!
Fantastic stay, highly recommended! Small things but taken care of as soon as. Great hosts! Only thing's are the location is quite residential, prefer closer into the centre for my needs but convenient for public transportation at times and perfect for a family. Heating was a little inconvenient as the panel is upstairs and you stay downstairs. Fabulous deal, i would stay here again!!
Great place. Very conveniently located and our hosts were very helpful with our questions about the area. For all you runners - the place is 2 blocks from an outdoor track.
Delightful accommodations! Would go back in a heart beat.
Had a great weekend in SF staying at Jeremy's place. Great host and helped us with local knowledge and travel arrangements which was much appreciated - thanks Jeremy
Jeremy and Laura were perfect hosts always ready to help us!
Once again, thank you!
Plus, even if the place seems not to be in the center it is easy to get there and the neibourghood is just so cute and calm!
