Description

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 is need to buy bottles. Our Hetch-Hetchy/Yosemite water tests better than most paid-for-by-the-bottle water. I never use a filter just drink from the 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 did not leave glasses in you bathroom, etc.)

The neighborhood

Great list for all of SF=

Getting around

Public transit is excellent here and if walking 'works' for you, it's ideal. A car is not a great idea as parking is sparse and expensive. Tickets are $60+, being towed will set you back $500+.
If at all possible, do SF by transit and on foot.

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.
Please read the item re parking if you are driving. STR-0000504

I had a wonderful stay at Jan's home. Jan was very kind and welcoming. Thriller is such a cute and cuddly cat. The location of this home is perfect. It is in walking distance to many great bars and restaurants as well as a nice scenic walk to downtown. The home is one minute from Dolores park with incredible views and a lively atmosphere. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.

Response from Jan:
Glad you enjoyed 'all of the above'! (Note to future guests: 'incredible views' are when in Dolores Park not from condo!)

Jan place is very well located and very quite, a great choice for the ones who spend the whole day sightseeing and want some rest by the end of day, but also a nice option for night. Jan is lovely.

Jan's place is a great little hideaway in the Mission. Really close to Tartine and Dolores Park. Jan is a great host who made us feel very welcome at check in, and otherwise left us to do our own thing, which we wanted. Recommended!

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.
