Enjoy this quiet bedroom suite in my luxury Corbett Heights condo. You'll have your own private bathroom & your own private entrance, and you are welcome to share my gourmet kitchen & living room with gas fireplace & beautiful views.
In addition to your own private bedroom suite with full bathroom and private entrance, you are also welcome to share the rest of my home with me (and TJ, my dog). Enjoy wonderful city and bay views from the living room and deck. Stay connected with wireless internet throughout the house. My gourmet kitchen is fully-equipped. I've got lots of room in the refrigerator and pantry, and coffee and tea for you to enjoy during your stay. The living room has a gas fireplace and cable TV (including HBO & Showtime).
YOUR PRIVATE BEDROOM SUITE
In your own private bedroom suite, you'll have a queen-sized bed (plus an optional twin-sized air mattress if you need it). Your huge walk-in closet has hangers, extra bedding and extra towels.
Note: All the pillows/duvets/blankets are hypo-allergenic (synthetic down).
Your private bathroom with shower/tub has lots of toiletries, a hair dryer and a first aid kit.
My dog and I live here, so expect to run into us, especially when you come down for coffee in the morning. If you time it right, I might even have a fresh cup of Blue Bottle coffee waiting for you :)
Locals call my neighborhood "Corbett Heights" but you can refer to it more generally as the Castro. My home is a 10-15 minute walk to the corner of Castro & Market, with easy access to public transit (MUNI subway, bus lines, historic F streetcar), restaurants, shops, cafes, bars, historic Castro Theatre, and more.
If the walk up the hill to get home is intimidating, take the #37 MUNI bus up the hill instead!
You're also within easy walking distance of stunning views from Corona Heights park and Buena Vista Park, charming Cole Valley and the Upper Haight.
#37 MUNI bus is just a few steps away.
#33 MUNI bus is just a couple of blocks away (5-minute walk).
F streetcar and K/L/M/S/T MUNI subway lines are just a 12-15 minute walk away. N and J lines are about a 20 minute walk away.
Or, if you'll have a car while you're here, there is plentiful street parking right outside my house.
Did you forget your phone charger?
- I have a spare universal charger. Just ask :)
Dressing up to go somewhere fancy?
- There's a blowdryer in your bathroom for all your hairstyling needs, and an iron and ironing board by the washer/dryer to get the wrinkles out of your favorite outfit.
What's up with the weather?
- I've got you covered. There are a couple of extra layers (two zip-up nylon shells) in your closet in case you need a little something extra. There's also a teeny tiny (pocket) umbrella in case it rains.
And as of May 2014 I've gone solar--all this powered by the sun!
Quiet, please, after 11pm--please respect our neighbors!
No smoking in the house or anywhere on the premises.
The back yard (all the way up the stairs) is off limits.
When you use the kitchen, please tidy up after yourself.
Please do not feed TJ or let him outside.
If you bring your dog, he or she must be well-behaved and must not be left alone in the house.
Excellent place to stay and relax, very quite and private!
A little walk to Castro district, very easy parking if u drive,
A wonderful house v great views
Ian, TJ and his house are fantastic. It is in a great location, easy access to public transport, safe and friendly neighbourhood. Ian is inviting, and a really friendly and nice guy, he even prepared nice welcome pack on our arrival, with plenty of information at hand (brochures, notes, etc). He is a fantastic communicator, you will not have any troubles checking in, or asking questions.
The room was immaculate, exactly as pictured.
His dog TJ is lovely.
Great experience all the way around. Ian is lovely, mellow yet accessible. Great communication, but we never even knew that he was around.
The room was pleasant, clean and just right for us. The location is central to all of the areas where I enjoy visiting in San Francisco (cole valley, Castro, mission, GG park, Haight St., Hayes Valley)
Our room in Ian's home made for a pleasant base during our visit to San Francisco. The room was clean, comfortable, quiet and secure. On-street parking was readily available. Ian was an attentive host. We would be happy to stay with him again.
Had a wonderful time in Ian's space. He was a wonderful hand helpful host. He gave some great suggestions and even helped us with parking! Would highly recommend this space!
Ian showed himself as a friendly and ever smiling host. He was always very quick at responding to text messages prior to my arrival.
The accommodation was clean and nice. It had a great work desk which was useful in my case.
As a bonus Ian had been so thoughtful to leave a jug of water and a few snacks in the room prior to my arrival. Very nice surprise.
We stayed with Ian for 5 nights in mid-March. He is an absolutely fantastic location within easy walking distance to Castro, public transport is easy after that!
The flat is clean, tidy, spacious and comfortable. Ian was very welcoming however we didn't cross paths much due to our schedules. We highly recommend Ian's for any travel in San Francisco!
