Private room in spacious 1911 condo in hip Temescal neighborhood. Access to kitchen and shared yard space with outdoor seating. Street parking is generally available on the block.
Condo is only 2 blocks from the MacArthur BART station. From there it is 15 minutes to downtown SF or 6 minutes to Berkeley.
10 minute walk to restaurants and shops of both Temescal and Piedmont Ave including such hits as Bakesale Betty, Genova Delicatessen, Burma Superstar, Bay Wolf and PIzzaiolo.
A super sweet collie/shepherd mix lives here. He will not go into your room (unless invited), but welcomes all belly rubs.
While the bed is technically a futon, it is a fancy one with springs that is really more bed than normal futon.
Fantastic location, very close to BART and buses, with cool coffeeshops and restaurants nearby. I was mostly out and about so didn't see much of Simone, but she seemed lovely and was very helpful and accommodating. Her apartment is clean and comfortable and I slept well. Definitely recommended!
very nice and clean! very short walk to Bart! Simone was very accommodating especially because my flight was late in the evening. Best airbnb experience so far :)
Simone has a very nice house, and the room is cozy and pretty good. The bed is comfortable and the location was very convenient for me, a short walk to MacArthur Bart. As soon as I arrived, she gave me a short tour. I had booked the place with very short notice and Simone was super helpful and very accommodating. Simone is very nice and she also has a dog, Toby, who is pretty awesome and docile.
I usually kept to myself as I had just moved to the area here and had started my new job and was searching for apartments so wasn't at the place most of the day. The place was very clean and well kept. The street the house is at is pretty safe and you just need to be careful only on the main streets and near the bart station. In summary, it was a good stay and would recommend it to people who need to be close to public transport and want a nice cozy room to stay.
What a gorgeous place! We had a wonderful stay. Simone's apartment was clean, comfortable and welcoming. It was a really nice place to come home to at the end of a long day! The location is very convenient and the street is quiet. Highly recommended!
This was my first airbnb experience, so I don't have a lot of context for my rating. Room was clean with plenty of closet space. Simone was private, didn't volunteer much info, and was gone most of the time, which was fine with me, but it means you need to initiate questions and do so when you arrive if you want to know where something is or how something works or get something. Her dog Tobey is a big teddy bear and won't bother anyone. I traveled by BART and on foot. The immediate area around the BART station is sketchy, but once you walk a couple of blocks and turn down the street where Simone's house is, the area is fine. Wide range of eateries within a half mile - fast food, worn looking places with character, coffeehouses, trendy restaurants, and a bagel deli (Beauty's Bagels) with a line out the door. Underwood coffeehouse is six very short blocks farther down 41st at Broadway and has a limited but interesting menu that looks like it changes by the day, plus a selection of beers and a nice outdoor eating space.
The stay was really good. The bed was comfortable and the room as well as the whole house was clean and tidy. We love this place. The host is good too.
The room is so cozy and comfortable! Was a little bit colder than usual outdoors, so I was glad there was a space heater. Very quiet, calm atmosphere where I could get some work done and relax. Would love to stay again! The pup is adorable too :)

I am currently working on climate and energy related projects designed to bring cleaner energy to California. In my spare time I try to be outside as much as possible. I'm also into Ashtanga yoga and learning to be a chocolatier. I have traveled widely for both work and play, but am now happy to be here in the Bay Area.
