Ground-level bedroom/bath, with a private entrance, opens out onto the garden. Ideally located with MUNI lines within 4 blocks. The room has everything that is needed for any mean--refrigerator, microwave and toaster oven--and dishes which we wash!
Per the new requirement: Possession of a SF STR Registration Certificate (STR(phone number hidden)) certifies that the registration certificate holder (Karen Cancino) has agreed to comply with the terms of the SF STR Residential Rental Ordinance (SF Adm Code Section 41A). This ordinance does not require an inspection of the unit by the City for potential Building, Housing, Fire, or other Code violations.
We are providing a private one bedroom, with bath, that looks out onto the garden. The room is suitable for one or two people. This room has PRIVATE ENTRANCE so that you will not have to walk through the rest of the house to get to your room. You can come and go as you please! The walkway has motion detector lights for your safety. Access to the walkway and room are by keypad so you do not have to worry about losing keys.
The comfortable trundle bed can be used as ONE KING SIZE BED or TWO TWIN BEDS.
A refrigerator, microwave and toaster oven plus dinnerware are in the room so you can fix a quick quick breakfast or re-heat take-out dinner when you are too exhausted to eat out after a day of sightseeing! Complimentary coffee and/or tea is provided.
Divisadero Street is welcoming re-vitalization with new restaurants and shops appearing weekly. Waiting in line for a Bi-Rite ice cream cone or toast at The Mill frequently happens!
We are ideally located, with 3 bus lines within 2 blocks to downtown and other points of interest. And three others within walking distance.
There is parking on the street that is typically readily available but is limited to two hours, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. - 6 pm. Parking is free and readily available on weeknights and on weekends. However, if you are interested in using our driveway, we can provide a parking spot for $20/24hours.
Guests have complete privacy by entering directly into the accommodations through the French doors off the garden. They also have full use of the garden.
Interaction with Guests
We live in our house in which the private BnB is located. We greet our guests and leave them to enjoy San Francisco unless they seek us out to chat and/or need help.
We have been in our neighborhood for 39 years. It is in a perfect location to navigate around the city. We have a car but MUNI is ridden almost daily by one of us. It is quiet. We have small stores and restaurants within easy walking distance. We do rent out the driveway space for $25 per day for those guests who have cars.
We are so ideally located, almost in the center of the geographic city. Five major lines are within 4 blocks. For guests staying 3 or more days, a kiosk that sells Muni passes for 1, 3 ($26) or 7 ($35) days with on and off unlimited. If you wish, we can pick them up ahead of time for you. You can then reimburse us when you arrive.
Other Things to Note
We have a binder with relevant information, e.g. restaurants, public transportation. In addition, previous guests have left many brochures on sights to see in San Francisco.Possession of a SF STR Registration Certificate certifies that the registration certificate holder has agreed to comply with the terms of the SF STR Residential Rental Ordinance (SF Adm Code Section 41A). This ordinance does not require an inspection of the unit by the City for potential Building, Housing, Fire, or other Code violations.
We are very easy going people and welcome anyone who is respectful and considerate. Unfortunately, we do not accept guests with infant children because of a couple unpleasant experiences in the past.
A neighbor has requested that smoking not be done in the garden so essentially Casa Cancino is a smoke-free zone.
We try to recycle as much as possible and ask our guests to help us.
As you may be aware, California is experiencing a drought. We are trying to conserve water and would appreciate our guests helping us by turning off the water when brushing teeth or washing at the sink. And short showers really help conserve!
My boyfriend and I were visiting from NYC and stayed at Karen's for three nights. We loved the neighborhood and Rodolpho gave us great recommendations for where to go in the area. Lots of great restaurants and local shops. Quick walk to lower height and a few min more to mission. The garden was lovely and the room was quiet and tucked away. Definitely recommend this for a quick getaway! Thanks again for the hospitality!
This place was great! It was a prime location in a great neighborhood. Easy walking distance to public transit and local restaurants and nightlife. Room was comfortable and well furnished. Private entrance and bathroom made things easy. Rodolpho was super helpful showing us the room and offering local insight when we first showed up. I would definitely stay here again if we're back in town.
This was my second stay at the Casa Cancino. They are excellent hosts: friendly and full of ideas for places to go, etc. The room looks just like the photos, although I used the twin bed option. The location is great. Close to eateries and bus routes. A quiet neighborhood.
Great hosts, location and accommodations. Highly recommend Karen and Rodolpho's place for anyone staying in San Francisco.
Host couple did indeed welcome us and made sure we had what we needed. They provided helpful information about attractions, restaurants, transport and more. The location is very convenient to two bus lines. The room was clean and comfortable, the only challenge was finding space to place our open suitcases. We would stay there again.
Room was cozy, just right for two people. We had a great time staying, and Karen and Rodolpho were very kind and gracious with their time and advice. Would definitely stay there again!
This room is perfect: you have wonderful, friendly and welcoming hosts (Rodolfo & Karen, and their little dog; they've been helpful throughout my stay), the room is as advertised, big with all the privacy you need (it's at the bottom floor of a sweet San Francisco house), the garden outside is beautiful (wish I'd seen it in spring!) and the location is very convenient (quiet neighborhood but close to everything, given easy access to public transportation). I do recommend it, and I will rent it again, next time I'm in town.
We are your hosts, Karen, a retired social worker, and Rodolfo, a retired teacher. We love our neighborhood where we have lived for 37 years.
