About This Listing
LARGE apartment in cool 1940's victorian building in SF's central NOPA district, on Turk & Divisadero St. Easily accessible to all parts of the city by bus or walking.
This is a 2Bdrm/2Ba apartment that I share with my roommate. He works downtown and is home in the evenings & weekends, though he keeps to himself. Aside from maybe bumping into him in the kitchen or backyard, you basically have use of the common areas to yourself. He also has his own ensuite bathroom.
My bedroom is so quiet; you're guaranteed a great night's sleep. Set your alarm or you will oversleep! The room (& bathroom) is available when I'm traveling, so my clothes and personal items will be there; but you can see in the pictures that I keep everything tidy. Of course, there will be clean linens on the bed, clean towels, and some extra bathroom amenities in case you forget anything.
Interaction with Guests
I won't be there during your stay, but I'm just a call or email away. I was born & raised in SF so I can likely answer any questions and provide more recommendations!
NOPA (North of the Panhandle) is an awesome neighborhood! You can walk to everything you need - restaurants, cafes & bars, a nail salon or shopping at local boutiques, the Painted Ladies at Alamo Square Park, and the Panhandle, which will take you into Golden Gate Park. On Divisadero St (1 blk east), if you walk 2 blks south, for the next 6-8 blks you will have your pick of culinary delight! Some of my favorites are:
Bar Crudo, Tsunami Sushi, Fly Bar, Nopa, Candybar, and Eddie's Cafe.
Oasis Cafe has the best pour-over coffee options (and cafe food), but The Mill is trendiest.
You can buy groceries from a few markets, including Bi-Rite, famous for their deli food & ice-cream!
There's a Farmer's Market on Sundays 10am-2pm on Grove & Divisadero.
Easy public transit via MUNI. There are 4 bus lines w/in 2 blocks:
5/5L and 31 go downtown via Market St. (very short walk to Union Square & Moscone Center) to the Ferry Building and to Ocean Beach.
24 runs from the Marina through the Castro to Noe Valley.
Other Things to Note
1. Laundry: coin-operated in building.
2. Street Parking: free Mon-Fri 9am-5pm for 2 hours; unlimited on weekends & holidays.
3. Running: nice path along the Panhandle & into Golden Gate Park & to the beach if you're ambitious. You can always bus back :-)
NO SMOKING, even in the backyard. 420 friendly outside. No Parties. Guests welcome to stop by for a short visit, but no overnight guests (no exceptions). If you want a 2nd person to share the room, please discuss logistics beforehand. This will be determined on a case by case basis & cost an additional $35/night + cleaning.
Generally, I'd say quiet hours are 11pm-9am.
Très agréable visite à San Francisco. Tout est comme décrit dans l'annonce de Jenny. L'appart est bien situé dans SF. L'accès à la chambre et à la salle de bain individuel directement permettent d'être indépendant. Malgré mes quelques mésaventures avec mon vol, Jenny est restée très disponible et a rendu mon voyage des plus agréables. Je recommande très vivement ce logement Airbnb!
Very beautiful victorian house, located in the central, calm place. The room was exact, as described. Jenny and her roommate are very friendly and polite persons. Would recommend this place to everybody.
Jenny's place was a great choice. The bedroom is very comfortable. The apartment is nice and full of natural light, with an outside area where you can have meals and enjoy the sun. And the house is gorgeous. The neighborhood is calm, close to all the other areas of the city, full of beautiful victorian houses and has one of the best park/squares of SF, alamo square. it is also full of places to eat and have coffee or drinks, specially at divisadero street, the new cool area of the city. communication with jenny and her roommate was great and they made me feel very comfortable.
Jenny's place was great! Central location, easy to get around the city, and very clean. It was perfect for traveling alone in SF. Thanks!
Thanks for the review. I just returned home on Sunday. I tried multiple times to write a review for you, but it seems I can't (maybe the window of time expired).
My roommate said he didn't meet you and that you were quiet. Hope you had nice R&R.
Staying at Jenny's apartment was great! She was an excellent host, responded quickly and was flexible with my arrival and departure times. She even arranged to ship an item I had left behind. The room and apartment were perfectly clean. Spacious back yard and nice kitchen. Her room mate was quiet and friendly when I met him. The apartment was centrally located in the city. I would definitely stay again!
I loved staying at Jenny's place! It was super clean, and the location is perfect - it's 10 minutes away from everything! Jenny was an awesome host! She sent me a detailed email about how I can get to her place from the airport, things I could do in SF, etc. She was readily available at all times, and generous in her time when responding to any questions I had. She left detailed information about the place. Her bed is so, SO comfortable - she warned me about that, so I had to make sure to set a proper alarm anytime I went to sleep.
This was my first experience with Airbnb, and Jenny made it flawless! If I got back to SF, and need a place to stay, this would be my first choice, hands down!
About the Host, Jenny
I'm from San Francisco - born & raised! I like to be adventurous and try new things. I love traveling, experiencing new cultures, and eating at the new trendy spots and hidden hole-in-the-wall places alike. I play soccer & run, though I pretty much enjoy anything outdoors when the weather is nice. I can handle snow when I'm skiing! :)
