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.
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!
Great room, great location, great hosts!
We walked down to the heart of the Castro for breakfast, and had easy access to the buses and subway. This place is a must-stay.
Everything perfect, great location, amazing view, spacious room and very comfy bed, all the best!
Our host Ian was very welcoming. He let us know everything we needed to know for our stay in his lovely apartment and then he left us alone.
Ian is an amazing host. The house is really beautiful, located in a peaceful neighbourhood overlooking the city. The bed is super comfortable and the bathroom is really clean. I felt really comfortable staying with Ian and TJ and Ian was super flexible with my check out schedule. Would highly recommend Ian’s place and would stay again in the future. Thank you.
A totally positive experience: beautiful home, peaceful, scenic neighborhood, and maybe best of all, a kind, friendly, welcoming host and a sweet and peaceful dog. I felt truly comfortable and welcome to use and share the kitchen and living room, I had both privacy and opportunity for enjoyable conversation, a great combination. Highly recommend.
Ian was an absolutely wonderful host, and this listing is a GEM! I was traveling to SF for a hectic work week, and this beautiful space was exactly what I needed. It's spacious and clean, the bed is super comfortable, and the bathroom is completely private and gorgeously redone. The private entrance really made it feel like my own personal sanctuary. Ian welcomed me when I arrived, gave me a tour, and answered any questions I had. We didn't see each other much during the week due to my work schedule but he checked in with me via text to make sure I had everything I needed. I will definitely stay here when I visit SF again and highly recommend this listing and host! Also, the neighborhood is adorable and safe!
