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 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.

SF water is (URL HIDDEN) 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.)

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

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!

Jan and Thriller are amazing hosts and their place is exactly as described. Nice and quiet while in a lively neighborhood. Tons of amazing restaurants on Valencia just a few blocks away and easy to access anywhere in the city.

Staying at Jan's place is great - you have a lovely big room and your own private bathroom, and of course there's space to hang out in Jan's home if you wish. She was a great host, patently answering all my questions about San Francisco on my first stop in my first trip to the States. I found this location to be great - Tartine bakery right around the corner (there are queues for good reason!), amazing Bi-Rite with gourmet food and deli, so much good food, even closer than Tartine. Then there's Mission Dolores park close by and lots of cafes and bars all in easy walking distance. Catching the J-line was super easy into downtown. I did 2 great walking tours with City Guides - Jan has the brochure. All up, a wonderful stay and I'll definitely be coming back to San Francisco and would happily stay at Jan's place again.

Jan's place was wonderful. I wasn't sure what to expect with staying in a room with the owner there since I've only always rented full residences, but this was a great experience. Her place is very clean and comfortable. Everything you would need or want for a pleasant stay. The location was great, close to public transportation and a wonderful park. I'd definitely book here again for my next stay in SF!

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.
