About this listing
Off the Beaten Path
Price – Convenience and Affordability
*Please note the house is undergoing a downstairs renovation. You may hear construction noise during the day between 8am-5:30pm until November, 2013. Sorry for the inconvenience.
I have a cozy downstairs bedroom in our house available to rent out for a minimum of 30 nights for $32.00/night with additional $30.00 per person. $20.00 cleaning deposit. I will lend you house and bedroom keys.
Bedroom is private, cozy, and is furnished with a twin bed, desk, chair, chest of drawers and has a closet. It is newly renovated and tastefully decorated. It has a window where you can see the huge backyard where a giant avocado tree anchors the yard steps away. The bedroom is located downstairs where currently a renovation is underway.
Despite the minor inconvenience of the renovation, the downstairs bedroom is a nice place to relax from your hectic day. Sink into the comfortable bed and enjoy the soft comforter, sheets, and towels which come with the bedroom. Feast your eyes on the delicate flowers that are sprinkled throughout the yard.
House - Experience immersion in San Francisco everyday life.
The house is chic-shabby and is conveniently located near the Mission, Excelsior, and Glen Park—all within walking distance from the house. It is very close to transportation, freeways and major thoroughfares. Savor the ethnic vibrancy of the neighborhood off the beaten path of San Francisco.
Master Bedroom is located upstairs in the back of the house. Additionally, there are two other bedrooms with a shared bathroom that are also featured on airbnb.
Food Adventures – What can I say?
Kitchen is newly renovated with granite counters. You have kitchen privileges as well as pots and pans, plates, etc. Walk 1 block to buy fresh fish, crabs, Asian fruits and vegetables from the corner Asian Market. Across the freeway, walk to Farmer’s Market on weekends. Take 14 Mission bus towards Daly City where you will find Filipino, Chinese, Latin, German restaurants and a hamburger joint in the same neighborhood.
Ethnic Diversity – An Adventure
If you want to venture further away from the house, walk 1.5 blocks to take 14 Mission, a bus line that travels from one end of the City that borders Daly City to Embarcadero which is the heart of downtown San Francisco. Take the adventurous ride on this famous bus line and visit various S.F. districts en route. Or, walk four blocks to Glen Park Bart station and take the Bart lines that travel to SF International airports as well as various Bay Area cities, locations and destinations.

Maria is very kind. I rent a private bedroom in her house, and the price is very cheep (one of the cheepest in San Francisco). The neighborhood is fine because it is close to mission district: very interesting and multicultural neighborhood. And it is easy to reach the downtown, from the house, by bart or bus.
Maria is an excellent host - very accommodating and pleasant to chat with. The room itself is small, but not uncomfortable. The bed is good for sleeping, though I wouldn't recommend spending all your time in it. But you shouldn't need me to tell you that, since you're going to be in San Francisco; there's better things to do than spend all day in bed! Maria provided towels, sheets, and blankets to make sure that I was comfortable.
The only drawback to the room is that it's not weatherproofed - there's a distinctly damp feeling about the room (and everything in it) after a wet or foggy day.
The reservation was canceled 17 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Maria was very helpful during my stay with check in and check out. Place I stayed is having construction, but Maria told me if this before I booked.
I met several interesting people who were sharing Maria's home with me.
Bus lines and Bart are close by for easy transportation to anywhere in the city.
Maria takes care to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. Room is small but suitable if you're spending most of your time in the city. House is walking distance to food in the Mission and public transit (both BART and MUNI).

About the Host, Maria
I have always dreamt of having such a website available to feature our houses. I am delighted that such a format exists!!
I enjoy traveling and meeting new friends. I am hoping to take a break and travel the U.S. on Amtrak as soon as I get a break. Perhaps visit a few friends on the (website hidden) website.
