Guest often comment on how quiet it is, given the location in the middle of a busy neighborhood.
The bed, too, gets well reviewed! Good mattress and pillows.
The room is close to the front door so it's easy to come and go as you wish :)

The space

The master suite in my third floor (no elevator) condo is spacious,light,quiet and welcoming. Queen bed for your comfort.

You are welcome to share living space with Thriller, the black cat, and me. Additionally, Patrick is here Monday-Thursdays...off to work early each morning. Other BnB guests most weekends (they share my bath, you have your private bath).

Dolores Park, Mission Dolores, the trendy Valencia Street corridor are all just over a block away. Lots of new and established restaurants near-by including Delfina, Tartine Bakery, and so many others.

Walk to the Castro, Noe Valley and more.
This is a transportation-rich area.
J-Church Muni line is 1.5 blocks away,
BART is an easy 5 block walk, buses abound.
The F-Line is an easy walk to Market Street. Take it to Fisherman's Wharf (do get off for a visit to the Ferry Building at the foot of Market Street. Locals are seen here rather than at the Wharf or Pier 39 :) Old and imported street cars travel above ground (as opposed to BART and the J-Church,etc. which go underground on Market St.) The Embarcadero is very lively. It's where you depart to Alcatraz and to other ferry destinations.

PLEASE NOTE:
SF water tests better than most bottled water - NO need to buy bottles. It comes directly
from Yosemite/ Hetch-Hetchy. I never use a filter just drink faucet water.

SF weather is variable. By which I mean it changes from minute to minute, street to street. FAR TOO MANY visitors have to buy extra layers here to be comfortable (yes, even in summer - in fact, especially in summer when the fog rolls in...which is why Mark Twain is quoted as having said "the coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco!)

Parking - Street parking here is difficult, especially during the week (2 hr.limit) Garage at Hoff St x 16th is one of the closest. You might check parkopedia ap as well. Tickets in SF are $60+, towing will cost you $500+ and we have an issue with break-ins. If you park near here leave NO thing at all showing or you invite a broken window, sad to say.

Interaction with guests

Our paths will cross while you visit.
Happily give you my primary phone number so you can text me,
even when out and about, with questions.
DO ask if you need cups, glasses, etc. (if the maid/I did not leave glasses in you bathroom, etc.)

Other things to note

***Please do bring at least a windbreaker.***
SF is often windy and chilly, at least some of the time. I carry/wear my light-weight down parka most of the time - honestly.

Jan is consistently reliable in keeping up her high-quality standards, adding little personal touches each time I visit her. She is meticulous about cleanliness, comfort, security and being a gracious hostess. Each time I visit, she has added wonderful new books about her city and has new advice about what's going on in the city. Deep thoughts: She is sincerely interested in her guests and their thoughts. It is always a pleasure to be her guest (and play with Thriller!)

Great location, host - and super cat! What a great visit and truly the perfect location for exploring all of SF. Like others, I didn't know what to expect sharing a condo with a host who would be there, but it was a wonderful experience and her presence only added to the visit. Jan is very accommodating, allowed me to store bags after check-out and keeps a very tidy house. Bed was comfy and the room was quieter than other places I've visited in SF. A tech note: If you need strong / fast internet, you will need to get to a coffee shop or something. Meow meow!

Jan is a great host! Very welcoming, made us feel very comfortable and offered us tips to help us explore San Fran. Her house is located right in the Mission District which is a great location for exploring San Fran. We will be recommending this spot to our friends that visit San Fran.

Perfectly situated in between the Castro and the Mission, Jan's place is right off a bakery and ice cream indulgent street. The room is spacious, the bed is comfortable, and the apartment is quiet. Thriller the cat makes the stay extra special! If we're ever back in SF, we will definitely stay here again!

Welcome to my home! I’ve lived here in my condo on Oakwood St. for over ten years. Fell in love with San Francisco when I was here in college at SF State and have been 'at home' here since.

Since landing in SF I’ve traveled regularly, from Germany to Russia, from Vietnam to China. I love to hike, and belong to the Bay Area Ridge Trail. I'd be happy to recommend local hikes, both long and short! Among the things I enjoy are movies, reading, ballet, progressive thought, and conversation - especially over good food and wine, both out and at my table.

You'll be comfortable in my home if you're like previous guests and quite happy with the area you've chosen. My neighborhood is lively, centrally located, and provides plenty to do—if you want, I can recommend restaurants, cafes, theatres, shops and more. We'll enjoy chatting if you wish, I'll leave you alone if you want privacy.
