The Space

This historical landmark is featured in Alfred Hitchcock's "Vertigo" filmed in 1954. This old hospital was updated in 1984 to condominiums and we would love for you to stay with us. You have your own bedroom (queen bed) and bathroom. We have a cute patio with a nice container garden of fruits and vegetables. There is plenty of parking in the neighborhood and gorgeous views from Buena Vista Park and Corona Heights which are only a short walk away. This is in addition to our amazing city views from our roofdeck.

Located in the middle of the city, you can walk down the hill to the Haight, Cole Valley, or Castro. Buena Vista Heights is a very nice, upscale, and safe neighborhood. You can also walk to many different MUNI lines including the N Judah and the 71.

We are interested in airbnb to make a little extra money and to meet other people. We'd love to one day have a bed and breakfast! We are working professionals (choir teacher at a public school and renewable energy attorney), clean, and friendly folks from the midwest.

There are few places in the city where you get your own bedroom and bathroom. This privacy allows you plenty of personal space, but feel free to use the updated kitchen, the main living room, or the baby grand piano!

Light breakfast is provided- fruit, english muffins, yogurt, tea, and coffee.

Please inquire about availability before booking. Monday's are unavailable- I teach voice lessons out of the house on Monday's!

  • We loved San Francisco. The apartment is located in one of the most beautiful parts of San Francisco ( Haight Ashbury ) and from were we stood we could see the city and witness those crazy streets so typical for San Francisco. The room was nice, clean and comfortable and Courtney was kind enough to let us use their kitchen to cook. The only thing we regret though is not having been able to spend more time with Courtney and her husband has we would have loved to know them more.

  • We loved Courtney's place!The neighborhood is great;it's close to a lot of restaurants, there are a lot of nice views of the city and it's easy to get around the city. Courtney also provided recommendations for different restaurants. Unfortunately we didn't have enough time to try out all of her recommondations. We'll just have to come back some day :)!

  • Courtney and Tim are wonderful hosts! They were very helpful when we sought advice for exploring the city, and they added some very thoughtful touches to make our stay fun and comfortable. They have such a beautiful, simple home and the location in Buena Vista honestly cannot be beat! The awesome view of the entire city from the 7th floor patio and nearby Corona Park were an added bonus. My boyfriend and I had such a wonderful stay and I would definitely love to stay with Courtney and Tim again in the future!

  • This was our first experience with Airbnb and it was great. The room and the bathroom were spacious, the house really beautiful and we just loved the neighborhood !
    We didn't get to see Courtney & Tim much as we were often out of the house visiting the city but they still managed to provided us some good advises on places to go in the city !

  • Courtney's home was a perfect fit for my boyfriend and I during our stay in San Francisco. They are great hosts and made everything comfortable and easy during our stay. Courtney was great at being flexible concerning our late flight and us coming and going. Their home is beautiful, full of light, adorable porch and great neighborhood. Thanks for a perfect first airbnb experience!

  • Courtney's home was lovely and very comfortable. Her leaving fruit, coffee and muffins in the morning was so kind and hospitable even though I only got to grab some fruit on my way out. I recommend Courtney as a wonderful host!

  • This was a perfect place for our SF weekend! It is in a beautiful, quiet neighborhood; we loved our morning walks across the street in Buena Vista Park (the Golden Gate bridge was easily visible). And, it was easy to get from there to our other activities.
    Our accommodations (bed and bath) were clean and comfortable - and more than enough room for us. The breakfast items Courtney provided were perfect for starting the day. And, we certainly felt welcomed in making fuller use of the kitchen (we didn't, but we knew we could have).
    As a host, Courtney was prompt in responding to us - and in arranging details of our arrival time. (No waiting!)
    We will absolutely recommend their place to friends!

  • Great location! Friendly host and very nice room, excellent private bath. Only con is that it could be good with a spare bed or two separate beds.

  • Wow, where do I start. This was my first experience with AirBnB and I may be spoiled for future ones. First, the location was awesome. Adjacent to a great park, within a short walk of the shopping & "experience" of Haight street, and easy access to several Muni lines. The view from the shared rooftop patio was a special treat.

    Next, the room itself. Very clean, spacious, private & comfortable. Also, a private bathroom! My understanding is that most accomodations have a shared bathroom, so this was a bonus. The bathroom had an ample supply/variety of shampoos, soaps, etc. And even toothpaste!

    Last, but most important, the hosts!! Courtney & Tim were nothing short of great! Their profile indicates that they are relatively new at doing this, but you would never know it. I needed a slightly later than normal "check-in" and that was not an issue. Upon arrival, I was shown a basket of fruit, coffee, teas and english muffins for my breakfast use. Also provided was yogurt, milk & orange juice. In the bedroom, was presented with a simple list of very minimal "house rules", a small map of local environs with recommended local eateries & location of Muni stops. Also an "about us" sheet which only made me feel more comfortable. Were also provided with Courtney's cell # with the invitation to contact her with any questions about the room, the area, suggestions, etc. In short, my own concierge!

    Finally, though on arrival she indicated that "check-out" was approx. 3pm, upon hearing that my flight was not until 10:30 PM, Courtney invited me to stay as long as I needed. I challenge you to find a hotel to provide that opportunity!

    To sum up, I am extremely happy with this entire experience & am anxious to use this service again when next I travel. And it goes without saying that when I return to San Francisco, my first choice will be to stay once again with the Lindl's.

    To AirBnB, you cannot have better ambassadors for your program/service than Courtney & Tim.

    Thank you & I look forward to travelling again with AirBnB.

Hello! I'm a friendly girl from the midwest who loves to sing, play piano, and cook. I'm a choir teacher at a local public middle school and have been teaching for about 8 years. My hubby, Tim, and I have been married for 3 years and are really excited to try Airbnb. He's a renewable energy attorney and is also from the midwest. We have been in San Francisco for over 7 years, and are excited to share our place with others! As hosts, we are friendly, but also recognize that you need your space. We have lots of little brochures and books to help you find your way around our wonderful city. We really enjoy going out, so we have lots of recommendations if you need any. I also like to add some San Francisco style to your stay with little lollipops from our local candy shop.
