Off the Beaten Path
Price – Convenience and Affordability
I have a large bedroom in our house available to rent out for $38.00/night with additional $10.00 per person. $20.00 cleaning deposit per person. I will lend you house and bedroom key.
Bedroom – A rarity
Bedroom is private, cozy, sunny and fully furnished with a shared bathroom. The room has a queen sized bed that will comfortably fits 2 people, fresh comforter, sheets, and towels. Room has some view of S.F. city lights.
House - Experience immersion in San Francisco everyday life.
The house is chic-shabby and 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 in the back of the house. Additionally, there is a 2nd bedroom with a shared separate bathroom that is also featured on airbnb. The owner’s son lives downstairs in his own unit and occasionally ventures upstairs.
Food Adventures – What can I say?
Kitchen is newly renovated with granite counters. You have kitchen privileges and a kitchen cabinet 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.

La estancia fue muy buena. La habitación es muy cómoda, se puede cocinar dado que hay muchos utensilios y condimentos. Muy limpio y tranquilo. A dos cuadras hay transporte que lleva a todos lados. Estuvimos en contacto con Maria todo del tiempo, quien nos prolongó la estadia por tres días más. Muy contentos de alojarnos aquí.
Maria has been a friendly and welcoming host. She's quick responding my messages. Her brother and his wife are also friendly.
The actual room is smaller than the picture in the listing but the queen size bed is great. There is also a heater in the room. Also the house doesn't have a soundproof wall so be ready to hear honking from impatient drivers outside EVERYDAY. (Especially in the morning, so purchasing an ear-plug does help). There is also a pretty fast Wi-Fi, and communal kitchen.
Excelsior, in a nutshell is a blue-collar neighborhood and not the nicest and cleanest area you'll ever come across in SF, albeit its unpretentiousness. However, it offers convenience as there is an Asian market near the house where you can buy relatively cheap groceries. Also its near the 14, 49, 14X bus stands where it takes you to Downtown SF and 8-10 mins walk to the BART station. Its recommended to not walk alone in this area during the wee hours.
Overall its great if you're planning to live here for a short term period.
Maria was an excellent host and we certainly thoroughly enjoyed our room, which had a great ambiance and was warm in all senses of the word. We had everything we needed, and the little touches, such as freshly baked creme puffs, were very welcome. The room and bathroom were kept very neat and tidy, as were the more public spaces like the kitchen. The location is indeed convenient and it is in a nice residential neighborhood with some interesting shopping and food options close by. There are also beautiful paintings about the apartment and in the rooms, which only add to the delightful ambiance. One recommendation would be to bring ear plugs along with you if you are noise sensitive as a fairly active road is nearby. Still, earplugs easily did the trick and even if you are not an ear buds person, it is not so bad anyhow. Would definitely stay again!
Maria is a hard-working and dedicated hostess. She responds very quickly to messages, does everything she can to accommate my needs, and even got me started with a roll of toilet paper. The room had everything that was listed, and the location is as convenient as Maria said. Thanks for a great stay, Maria!
I enjoyed staying her apartment. Maria and her brother were nice hosts. The location is very accessible and you would be able to find great Burritos easily in this neighborhood.
Maria is prompt, professional, and friendly. The room and house were just as listed. Thanks, Maria!!
Maria was a very gracious host. The room can be a little bit noisy, but otherwise I had no complaints.

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.
